Cosmic Era is the personal playground (campaign world, novel setting, etc) of Scrasamax. A lot of his submissions (and he writes A LOT!!!!) take root in the Cosmic Era.

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

Is there an article that gives an overview of the setting, or is it more of an emergent setting?

I see a number of articles referencing the Cosmic Era. What exactly is it?

The Cosmic Era is a somewhat distant futurist setting that mixes the basic tropes of cyberpunk and Shadowrun with the technology of Battletech (giant robots, power armor, rail guns) and blends in a large dose of 80s and 90s nostalgia, Saturday morning cartoons, and Lovecraft.

I've attempted to make a master codex, but I am better at generating it's content than providing any sort of arrangement to it.
