how do you want that to change our view of your posts?     

It's going to take a little bit for me to come up with an answer for this.

Great.

Point of feedback being is I don't see that coming through strongly in your posts of late  (the recent Universe 26 is its own thing).  I think if this is what you want us to take away from the cosmic era posts you could turn up the volume on the horror. I think the whole cloth stuff undercuts and dilutes your setting.  I get writing stuff to deal with being tired and restless but how do you want that to change our view of your posts?

The hero faces their inner demons, and the cosmic horrors in their line of work. No one will know if they succeed, because it'll be brushed under the rug by the higher ups. If they fail, no one will know because there will be another contingency, another layer of action, and there will be an 'incident' and still no one will know, there will just be lots more dead bodies.

The horrors come, they fight.

Some die.

Some go mad.

The monsters keep coming.

They win the battle, they retreat, they escape, sometimes they don't.

It doesn't matter, the people that the PCs likely work for are monsters all the same. The PCs are expendable, they are liabilities, they are written off and left to die, left to rot in sanitariums, given field retirements (suicide missions to take them off the dossier).

The plan to retire to Fiji, Belize, New Themyscira (Good luck getting there, that's like trying to move to Israel)

That plan isn't going to happen. It's a tattered photograph left in a bunk or footlocker.

Busy day of gardening today.

Built a flower box (7 foot x 2 foot) for my wife. Filled it with soil, and now it has columbines and gerbera daisies in it. Flanked by more daisies in pots. It's pretty in front of the driveway.

More box spaces tilled in the back yard, but not boxes around the spots yet, almost out of pallet lumber. The stuff goes fast. The boxes have been planted with peppers (mostly hot, predominantly jalapenos and anaheims, but also some trinidad scorpions and carolina reapers, just for the lolz). Also put most of the tomatoes in the ground. Largest group is Cherokee purples, and there are 5-6 of them. Love the tomatoes they make, plus we have friends and family that we send them to.

Tilled up a strip for flowers, and planted nicotinia. Aka tobacco. Apparently it has very pretty flowers. Will be posting pictures on my facebook as they progress.

Lots of action in the garden from stuff already in the ground. The dragon tongue beans are coming up in force, counted 22 having already broken through the soil. Going to have beans coming out of my ears. The regular garlic is coming up in spades, and the shallots are really getting rolling.

Things would be going perfect if I could get the neighbor's cat to NOT s**t in my garden. I don't care about the poop, but I do care about it tearing up my seedlings and killing my freshly sprouted plants. If the small animal repellent doesn't work, it'll be time to get a BB gun.

Alright Max so the basic arc of stories in the CE will be stalwart moral characters who maintain their heroic personas and eventually find a way to personally escape the horrors of the by retiring to places like Fiji or New Themysicara.
my kind of game

Okay so the NPCs are heroes and they represent a type of rebellion against the cosmic era and if the story line of the NPCs and (similar PCs) are followed to conclusion they will transcend the horror of the cosmic era and reform society?  So Max, do you see the cosmic era setting is a pallet into highlight the outlines of moral righteous characters?
I think I see it as Scras does(?).The heros fight is very lovecrftian, minor victorys but no real change. The struggles of the hero's are heroic for heroic sake, not that they could do anything other than maybe find an out of the way Place(Figi?, Beleze?, New Themisacra?) and retire after a minor victory or two.

I have decided to leave the aliens on the shelf, and you can consider the Perpetual War and the Cosmic Era to no longer be canon.
