The Rumor

By:

They're doing it, they're really doing it

Have you heard, whispers in the CogNet, of our new home?

Carapace, Seibertronian soldier

The writing is on the wall, we have found it. But it's not a language, not one for organic eyes. It's numbers, symbols, energy states and power levels. It is the secret language of the seibertronians. All we need is a key, something to give us a starting point and we will find out how to crack their little secret. Never trust a machine! NEVER TRUST A MACHINE!

Mindbender, Anti-Robotics League

I've heard the word whispered, soft like a lover. Seibertron.

Our own world, our own home. Away from these filthy humans, their smell and their excretions. Cold, clean, pure. A world gleaming, lights and cities of shining steel and burnished crystal...

Is it too much to dream?

Queen of the Road, Seibertronian terrorist

Primus

There is another rumor, that where ever Seibertron is, that the powers behind it are building something, their goal is to create the next generation of AISC, something to make the M12 giants look like pussycats and calculators. But Primus was a specific purpose, something that is only important to the Seibertronians, reproduction. The machine race is created at random, when a computer neo-cortex is switched on for the first time the vast majority simply boot up. A small number seemingly crash and then rebuild themselves, open their machine eyes and are sentient. 

Primus would exist for the sole purpose to create new seibertronians, efficiently and reliably. Rather than getting the random hodge podge of sex bots, machine loaders, and combat drones, these new Seibertronians would be specifically born as scientists, artists, builders and explorers. Soldiers would be needed, but the pragmatism of the Seibertronians dictates that the soldier itself need not be sentient, but the leaders of the robot armies and fleets would be.

The Future of the Seibertronians

The rumors swirl that the denizens of New Seibertron have new, more powerful bodies. The strongest and most powerful Seibertronians on Earth has given up their humanoid shells and taken residence in power armors or mecha. These are imperfect fits, since these machines were all built and designed for human users, and have human amenities and needs in mind. The mecha based seibertronians are rare in the extreme, the very act of fusion between a mech and a seibertronian considered illegal under the Tycho Conventions. The handful that exist are members of Amerikka Command, The Brotherhood, or other small terrorist factions.

On New Seibertron, as the planet is being technoformatted (the machine version of Terraforming) there is rumor of factories building new bodies, designed from the ground up to be seibertronian. The new minds that will be born of Primus will be placed in these waiting powerful vessels, and that worthy Seibertronians from Earth who find their way to the planet will be granted one of these titans as well.

Vector

The Vector Series of supercomputers exist on Earth, products of Seibertronian exclusive design. The Vectors are used in the cores of warship computer cores, principally the Atlantic Federation Space Fleet, though the Pacific Rim Coalition and Eurasian Alliance have a couple of Vector computers that have fallen into their hands. The PRC Vectors are used in space craft, though the Alliance has chosen to fit it's Vectors to their submarines.

The Vector series are produced in small numbers, but more have been built and been 'lost' than can be accounted for. Those who know of the Prophecy of Primus claim that these missing Vector AISCs have been built and shipped to New Seibertron, wherever it is. It is known that in the wild prospector frontier of the Asteroid Belt, there are large mining ships registered to private parties. It is claimed that these are the foundry cruisers of New Seibertron, and that they are not just mining ships, but warships with Vectors buried deep inside of them.

Has a very Terminator Feel to it, with a Dash of The Matrix, and some Sci-fi to give it a final Twist of flavor.

I like the idea. It covers a Vast plot and has a lot of open area for the players and the DM to work with.

Great Idea!

Hu's Iron Ball

       By: Murometz

Hu was an ambassador of the Seventh Emperor of the Reng Dynasty. Throughout his life he traveled across many miles and lands to entreaty with neighboring kingdoms and the semi-savages who dwelled amidst the Metal Mountains.

During one such diplomatic mission, Hu was gifted a small iron marble as a gesture, by a shaman of the Kiy-Kiy tribe. Little else is known of Hu, but that marble was lost and is now somewhere out there for someone to find.

A tiny, shiny sphere, the marble has several properties. First and foremost it is a strong magnet, considerably stronger than its size and density would indicate.

Secondly, if thrown or rolled upon the ground and the command word is spoken, the iron ball will magically enlarge to either the size of an ogres's head or to that of a great globe, twelve feet in diameter. The rolling ball of either size will continue to roll or fly at the same relative speed it was when launched as a marble, and can thus cause great damage to anything in its path. The magnetic power of the ball will also magnify when enlarged.

Legends claim that the ball has been tossed from besieged castles upon attacking foes and rolled at marching armies in ages past. At the end of such rolls, the larger size globe has been known to not only crush soldiers underfoot, but to also "collect" many dozens of metallic weapons and bits of armor unto itself, appearing as an armored sphere, with swords and spears sticking out from it in all directions.

Owning this powerful marble has its drawbacks. Anyone carrying it on their person, will experience the iron ball's insidious effects after some time. The owner feels no worse for wear, but after two month's time they will suddenly awaken one morning to find that their hair has fallen out completely, their teeth loosened like baby's teeth ready to drop, and their fingernails simply shriveled and sliding off the fingers and toes. Perhaps unbeknownst to the owner at first, the iron ball also renders an owner sterile or barren by this time.

Regular clerical healing will not reverse this horrible malady. Only finding and beseeching a shaman of the Kiy-Kiy tribe to heal the iron ball's effects with their particular brand of magic, will work.

Hu's Iron Ball should be handled carefully by players and gms.
