Gem counters. Didn't catch that.

Beats the heck out of hash marks on the plexiglass I think!!

I don't see any Earl Grey teabags in there? How about a bottle of Big Red?

:)

The only other thing I think I took when we game traveled was a roll-up dry erase grid map. Generally we had a piece of plexiglass over it since it was easier to erase but in a pinch we would use it as intended. No laptop in my day though. That was before computers were so common. Although at LAN parties we actually brought our entire desktop and CRT to friends' houses.

This is still one of the most badass ideas on the Citadel.

Still have my expanded Vartanadel notes that are clamoring to be expanded on.

Scras, picked another two article-y subs from the Cosmic Era and the deal is fully completed! A pleasurable exchange it was albeit some of the reads turned out to be somewhat disorienting  :)

btw, still waiting for 1 more vote each on Chinese String Instruments and Chinese Broadswords.

I've been around for a while and you probably know that I'm more of a utility-minded person when it comes to Codex intros so if it was me, I would go with the following format:
  • few lines summary of what the Cosmic setting is about, inspirations etc.
  • submissions grouped under headings in format similar to Regions and you might like to include short summaries of each heading or sub-heading as you see fit

Utilitarian is what I need.

Ok, I have 2 questions. Hopefully it's not something i missed somewhere along the line.

1. How far in the future does the Cosmic Era "begin"

2. Does the current age factor in verbatim or is the "past" of the Cosmic Era pseudo-real?

1. The Cosmic Era starts in about 300 years, and the current timeframe of the Cosmic Era is about another century after that, the exact date hasn't bet set.

2. We are currently near the middle of the Petroleum Era, and the future projection of the Petroleum Era is heavy on resource exploitation and the pursuit of cheap fuel without serious investment in alternative power sources. The gas runs out, wars break out over what is left, accelerating the demise of the Petroleum Era, aka the Resource Wars. Our modern way of life has another generation or two before the end of the Petroleum Era and in the course of a generation, the First World collapses, with only a handful of first generation arcologies holding the remnant of said modern world.

Going to add monthly progress log to this thread now so I can keep tabs on how I 'deviate' from planned activities. I'm gonna retro add the June 2015 log as the first one:
Actual released work (6 in total):
  • The Chinese lore Codex incl. bows, strings and broadswords (x4)
  • 2 retro quest subs
Planned work but stalled (2 in total):
  • Official Ranking system in The Qing (Manchurian) dynasty- more than half way done but disenchanted with it atm due to organisation and need to cross-check Chinese ref
  • 101 Distinguishing Features of a Culture (with Illustrative Examples)- okay, this seems like an insane project to me now but the original reason for taking this on is that I love world building and I was gonna use this project as an excuse to compile a list that I could re-use for world building projects in the future
Overall assessment of progress:
  • 1 ahead in terms of retro quests
  • total released subs very good considering past posting frequencies
  • stagnant work- actual sub conversion being 0
  • 2 new stagnant work coming into being
