Heh, this leaves the question wide open if you end up with an immortal copy of the individual, or the individual itself, and all the debate over that idea. In this case, I am in the 'Copy' camp.

A different take would be a slow replacement, neuron by neuron, from organic to artificial, without anything being turned off. The replaced organic neuron would be re purposed automatically to low-value memory, eventually disposed of. At some point the brain would be wholly replaced. Now, what would that do the the individual? What would happen to their 'soul'? :)

Nice analysis.

I liked the Fantastic four as a kid, haven't seen this movie yet. Not sure if I will - maybe if I run out of other things to watch on Netflix.

It is a fairly good list of pilots, though it bounces around quite a bit in genre and era.

I am somewhat put off by the single female pilot being The Feminist, and includes rape. Female characters can exist outside of the domain of Feminism and sexual violence. While they are still rare, there are several decent female archetypes apart from The Victim.

I like it! It is also good for identifying if you have indeed a macguffin in hand.

I love how you have managed to completely normalize the idea of a chicken with antlers! :)

An excellent post with lots of details. I almost think these damn things could exist, I mean, these do -

Great detail piece for this world.

My only problem with this is that the term cycle is already strongly tied to technology in the form of CPU cycles, and are vastly smaller than a second. They are also not fixed and keep getting shorter as technology advances.

Agreed! A great starting point for a race that is quite different. They strike me as very useful for a lot of bits and can be a nice replacement for goblins.

Another great submission! Lots of good details - I can really visualize the setting.

I find the second plot a little on the choreographed side, but I think that is just a matter of personal preference. Go to Comment

valadaar's comment on 2016-11-21 09:14 AM
An excellent submission. Love all the details.
The plot is good except for the forced nature of the shoot-down. I wouldn't expose the PCs own ship to a forced loss - better they be on some form of McCarron provided transport that gets knocked out of the air. If the PCs are in charge of flying and defense, you may have to 'force' them to fail at defense, especially against the crap fighters. I would personally hate that.

This is a top-notch article here. Can't add more other then to say thank you for this article. I have read a lot of WWII history and although I knew what the Enigma machine was, I really did not clearly understand how it worked. This helps immensely!

I love the Celtic feel of this one. Excellent items and atmosphere!
A handful of quests, a creation myth. Awesome.
I'd like to see more Songs, but this is a very good submission.

The PC's enter a town amid a giant celebration, the Spring Wedding Festival. Unmarried men and women from all over the provinces gather her every spring to be matched by the most sacred matchmaker ever to live, Holly Lovard. Holly is now ancient and must be carried everywhere she visits and rumors are that this will be her last visit to the Wedding Festival so any matches made this spring will be doubley blessed.
Enter PC's, wrong place at the wrong time. Molly sees one of them, calls him/her out of the crowd and that are unable to resist the push and pull of the mob. Brought in front of Molly Lovard, the PC is declared the lifemate of .
Could be the king's daughter, a peasant, member of the thieves guild. Could be anything to add a twist to an already building plot, or just throw the characters into an awkward situation.
