Great details - I like that the core are actually powerful genmods. Lots of potential here.

valadaar's comment on 2016-03-14 01:15 PM

I have a catelog in work with items such as:

Emergency Decompression Hood.

This system is worn as a thin, sweat-resistant necklace, available in many colors. Upon detection of a catastrophic pressure drop, tiny adhesive ampules rupture and a seal is produced between the necklace and the wearer's neck. Two small handles extrude nearly instantly and the wearer then quickly pulls both above his head and brings them together. This action brings up a molecularly thin transparent hood that will self-adhere and form an airtight seal. Milliseconds after the seal is established, a small quantity of an O2-helium mix will be expelled into the hood restoring atmospheric pressure and providing 30 additional seconds of breathing capability.

I think a more general catelog might draw other contributors then the specific Cosmic Era one.

Okay, what is here is already impressive, and what it could be, well.

I still vote for a more generic Near-future equipment list however :)

Straightforward and well described. It is a little esoteric, but good for use with sci-fie world-building and setting up scenarios for Battletech.

Personally, I see no problem with this being where it is.

It is very interesting and brings back some of my first experience with roleplaying. Have not had a campaign run any where near as long this one. Also, I didn't start roleplaying until Grade 7-8, around 1988.

I think we need more of this. Perhaps less useful for those of non D&D derived systems, it still presents an excellently detailed scenerio that can be adapted. Details of the tactics should be translatable to other systems,and the function of some of the items deduced. That Pathfinder's rule's are available online is a great help: Go to Comment

valadaar's comment on 2017-02-14 11:52 AM
I have long considered Attack On Titans a great idea for a campaign - and I really need to push back against the reception this post received.

I want to put to bed the idea of the Golden Standard being the be-all and end-all of content. What we should be doing is bringing and sharing ideas, and if some of us want to produce polished works which can earn HOH's and Goldens, and 5 votes, so be it. Don't look at everything with that eye - it should be fairly obvious if a submission is of the 'share the idea' variety or the 'fine art' quality. Consider the default to be 'share the idea'.

Especially from a new poster. The feedback here turned someone who could have been a promising member into a 1-day wonder.

valadaar's comment on 2014-11-21 01:11 PM
A good treatment of the subject - Faith as mentioned seems to be a fairly common mechanism. The need for physical avatars to act is a good one.

This chasing of faith has one side effect - it essentially predisposes gods to be selfish and capitalistic in nature, which somewhat precludes truly 'good' gods. Those gods which hold to 'good' principles will , barring some major change in humanity, be at a distinct disadvantages to those gods who will do anything they can to obtain Faith.

A memorable location, though there are some nit-picky logistical details that spring out at me. I'm not sure how there could be enough fuel to burn for two years, unless it was an exposed coal seam or a tire dump :)

I'm also curious on what the goblins eat that they would thrive in such a region, where no live trees are. Did the massive deposits of ash provide fertile soil?

The fact that they have any desire to obtain ore implies they have a good source of some type of fuel, for carting firewood to smelt ore would be rather expensive. This points to the coal seam as being possible.

Well, that is very Old School indeed! Reminds me of some of the PC's I've seen from that era.... :)

I think it needs a magic ring that replicates a Deck of Many Things and to somehow mix in a Sphere of Annihilation.

Hooper McFin's Two Shot Portal

       By: dudeington

Now, this ol' ramblin fellow tends to walk his talk a bit too far down the train sometimes.. So I'll be brief in my recantin' of how it was my Tavern "came to bein'" on the multiverse as a weave of it's own spell.. And how I'm even alive to tell the story!

You see it's simple really, trust me.. that's my specialty, keepin it elementary. And you can trust this old Bard.

Anyway, this one night these wizards get a ramblin' on about the temporal exististance of space and time and how it could be manifested in a weave of super dimensional space. whereupon the folded space would give rise to an infinite number of entrances and exits to one or many spaces. Now, seein' how my talkin' sometimes get's locked into the way us folks used to talk back in the ol' west. These wizards didn't know I was a master of the word. and I had heard everything they said. They were also a bit over the wagon, while I was steerin' the show.

So that's how it came to pass, I struck a bargain with the wizards. They come to me in the morning and conjure up their idea into reality and I'd pledge them my life, my existance.. in essence my soul. but in a much nicer sense of the word. So they came by in the morning a half remembering our talks the prior evenin'. And I recanted their words verbatum, and that's how it came to be. The spell was complete that afternoon. My tavern would be the super dimensional cube that would exist in this weave of space and time, folks could come and go as they please, knowin in mind some of the rules and limitations set forth.

A few of 'em as follows.

No feller can be causin a ruckus inside any of my fine establishments, as always rule number one god damnit.

n' second the portal works kinda tricky. When ya outside ya cast the spell and lend your will to luck a bit and regardless the doors to the bar will appear, the windows a luminescent amber.. you can hear the chattee but ya can't see in. And the catch is the door might be locked, in which case you chalk it up to lady luck and go walk off and try again in an hour. Now most times the door pops right open and from the outside you always come in the front door, immediately greeted by myself or one of our many fine patrons of Hooper McFin's Ale & Steakhouse.

Now when ya cast the spell from inside the Tavern, another catch comes up. The back door is mainly a secret for the non-initiated staff and the regulars but for sake of the prose let's assume we all know there's a secret door in the back with a portal there. Now when you go on through this one, you got two scenario's you oughta be aware of. One is ya pop outside relative to the same spot you came out. The other is, you walk back on into this one or another of our many Hooper McFin's Ale & Steakhouse.

so it's a clever quantum railroad I got my tavern and my people's caught on. But, Hey the show's sure as always goin. ohhh' rutin tootin skidoodle -

** And that's it.. that's the only notes I found on the spell, apparently out there somewhere is a Tavern caught on the mighty ebb and flow of the multiverse. Well. at least I can put to rest my torment as to the condition now referred to as "Hooper McFin's Teleportation Paranoia".
