I did something similar to this, Celestial Spiders, basically playing around with putting the celestial template on about the least divine holy creature I could think of, and ended up with white murder spiders that resurrected the people they killed, as a form of punishment for wicked deeds.

I find these much more neutral amoral spider divinities interesting and I like the summoner's tale that went with it. Go to Comment

Nice that they are not pure evil and can be reasoned with. Go to Comment

"I know Kung Fu?"

There is something interesting with these tabs on a neuroscience level and then applied to the roleplaying. So to learn use these things Long-term tabs do they have to link that knowledge in with your existing memories? There are a number of cues that we get in order to recall how to do a task, such typing or driving. If many of the cues were shifted you might have a difficult time performing the task. (Try transcribing something via typing by typing in the air. Even if you never look at your screen while transcribing, you get a little disorientated. The same could be true for language or reading. You may know what a word means, but when you see the word out of context it may throw of confuse you for a moment.

Anyway HERE IS THE PITCH: what is the L-softs link the knowledge to seemingly unrelated material in your brain. So every time your roleplayer used his L-soft regarding automobile technology, he or she thinks of bacon, Everytime they use the L-soft to speak French they start to feel as if they are very late for something and get the sense that they have forgotten an appointment. You could not tell them about this connection at first, just remind the players as follows.

GM: Make a WITS roll.

Player: 37

GM: This room seems very familiar to you, it reminds you of training officer's house from your time back in the Corp. when you would visit her when her husband was away. Go to Comment

I hold to the Stats are okay if they are unnecessary to the submission and simply extend its value school.

I like this idea - you are of course correct with the linkage of knowledge with existing memories. The way the TABs are produced allow for the potential of the 'sources' memories leaking in.

Its all about trying to get the skill boosting Books in fallout to kinda work.

Short, simple, to the point, useful, and with a nice benefit/restriction design.

This is a prime example of what I said in the forum: the stats are clearly marked and separated from the content *after* they have been explained in a way that I can happily skip over them.

Recruited as scouts sounds so innocent for this deplorable practice against nature. Poor critters, brain hemorrhaging on command. :P

I like it.

I have a story in which the main character controls his cattle through a device similar to the class 1 device. I just like the idea of dueling hackers trying to rustle cattle and sending the poor cows back and forth across the field. Go to Comment

I like this, there is just enough crunch and technobabble to make it plausible and a strong degree of functionality that makes it useful. Go to Comment

I like them in-line, you could use a block quote or something

A solid version of the slap patch idea, you play so fast a loose with the immunology and that I wouldn't even bother.

Expansion IDEAS: ONLY USE THE DONKEY PATCH ONCE
If a human used an animal version the immediate effects would be the same assuming PHL-80 is not species specific. But there would be a slow burn with the body possibly rejecting the transplanted tissue of over a mater of weeks. So the damage would just be delayed.

Or the body may never reject that transplant tissue (I assume the immuno suppressants are locale-actually very doable, stems are local immuno suppressants), but the immune system is likely to get primed. That means if somebody gets exposed second exposure to the same animal antigens they will have a very strong response. This would likely be a Delayed Type Hypersensitivity response swelling and tissue destruction at the sight of exposure, but anaphylaxis would not be off the the Table (get it? Game table...bah). If there is enough inflammation and antigen presentation a person that has had a strong reaction to a patch may also develop an immune response to PHL-80. Which again may render the drug less effective, but could lead to anaphylaxis or if gave a large enough dose of PHL-80 and the anaphylaxis didn't kill you than kidney failure from all the antibody-PHL-80 complexes in your blood.

PLOT IDEA:
So if the cancers are the result of the designed stem cells than perhaps that cells would be designed with a back door cytopathic pathway. The cells may be designed to express receptor for a toxin that is not produced by humans, to have a gene response to some type of artificial hormone or be susceptible to a designed virus. The end result would be that all the daughter cells from these stem cells could be eliminated by being exposed to this substance. In the real world such a back door would be a good idea (I am going to pitch today to my stem cell buddies). In the world of crazy super villains this could be a problem because they could design weapon that would cause everyones STEM PACK tissue to suddenly die. Go to Comment

Okay, per Aramax's suggestion, pulled the stats out into an attached idea. I personally prefer them inline. Thoughts?
