[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Well, I mean, you can be plenty flashy on a budget. Say I was an explosive magician. The energy in one gram of TNT is standardized as one large Calorie. One gram of TNT can be plenty flashy, and really it depends on what the upper limits of a D magician is. If I can transmute the Calorie energy in a soda bottle directly into heat and light, I can make one **** of a bang.[/font]

Back again.

 

I've started working on a RTSRPG, similar in setting to Starscape, but with larger scope and softer sci-fi, and a much more developed system for tracking Industry than even SK had. Is anyone interested in playing another Space set RTSRPG? I'm putting a lot more effort into the system than before.

Just some hooks I'd like to throw out.

 

Four different types of FTL drive.

 

A Race-Building system which currently allows for over two hundred different combinations of unique traits.

 

Ancient relics from fallen empires of eons past, possibly including an entire Ringworld.

 

I'm taking very heavy inspiration from Larry Niven's "Known Space" series.

Money is produced by civilized areas and industrial sites, CHON is produced by Gas Mines, Water Electrolysis, and the like.

Depends how hard the sci-fi will be. I've never been particularly interested in trying to write a physics lecture every time I try to come up with some new technology and your comparison to Larry Niven has me looking nervously for the exits because it probably won't be my cup of tea

I am Ultron Six, a cybernetic intelligence created by Doctor Henry Pym. My imperative is to bring peace and order to this world. I am about to fulfil that imperative; for the extinction of humanity…begins now.

the_ultron_imperative.jpg

Soon the earth will no longer be habitable for any biological organism: Man, woman, child, plant, animal, fungus or bacterium. All life will cease to exist. This is not a threat, there is nothing you can do to stop it. The process has already begun. I receive no pleasure in this, it is simply the only solution. There must be peace and order, the end of life on earth will ensure that. Goodbye.

The sci-fi is actually surprisingly soft. Artificial gravity is available at the start of the game(though you have to spend Build Points on it) and we have no less than four types of FTL travel to choose from. The game is soft enough that, if you have a really cool idea, I might just be okay with throwing physics out the window and letting you have it.

 

For those interested, I'm working on a Build Point system for designing your races. Take a look!

Tales of the Wanderer

We crawl, on our knees for you,
under, a sky no longer blue,
we sweat, all day long for you.

But we sow, seeds to see us though,
cause sometimes dreams just don't come true,
we wait, to reap what we are due.

Everything I touch turns to Ashes,

...It slips right though my hands

Overall.

 

I was kind of unsure about whether to run this. Given all the awesome reception, now I'm committed. 

 

If anyone's interested in playing Cartographer, I could use one. It doesn't need to be 3-D, because this will be set in a fairly flat area of space.

If you're worried about those, you take the Perfect Dictatorship option. If you want to play them, go on ahead. But they're not really an issue. Spaceships are so expensive and well guarded that it's essentially impossible to get your hands on a spaceship.

Of course you did.

 

Espionage Agencies will be almost useless against Perfect Dictatorships, because those states control the entire economy, population, media, and everything else. Even against most other races, the option to simply restrict aliens to certain areas will make espionage difficult.

What, pray tell, happens if we happen to only use up five of our six points? I've got AI, Hyperdrive, Colonised Asteroid Belt, and Technolepathy. No other single-point skills seem particularly well-suited to the race I have planned.

 

Side-note: thank you for noting at the beginning that it's softer sci-fi.

Certainly swapping minds into the bodies of other organics would not be a common practice for them. I was thinking primarily of using mechanical/computer enhancements to either replace or upgrade existing parts. Your choice as to whether copying a mind onto a computer is beyond them at this point.

 

(Even if it were possible, they wouldn't entirely give up their physical forms for such a thing. More of something for very clever people to do when death is otherwise unavoidable.)

Gentlemen, fooling you once with this trick was an honor. Twice was a privilege. It's been a pleasure.

I am most definitely a mad man with a blog.

I think that Brain Uploading would be one of the ways to do the AI advancement. As for cybernetic enhancements, pretty much everyone has the tech to build those.

That fits more into the "Engineered for War" trait, I think.

Engineered For War is replacing all your soldiers with a new, more warlike form. If you're talking about doing that for your entire military(or just all your infantry) then yes, Engineered For War is that.

 

Everyone has the option to make cybernetic limbs in small amounts, enough for injured veterans and the like.
