Re: How would The Imperium's Nobility react

Re: Could he refuse with some of his honour

Never.

He must fight every person who ever challenges them, even little kids and animals. To do anything less would be such a disgrace that he would be forced to commit public suicide.

Not unprofesional at all.

Every single intelligent person in the known universe would hail him/her/them as a hero for standing up for their principles. They would then go into politics and be elected as the next Emperor of the Universe - Every single time.

Re: Rogue 'planet' discovered

It was previously classified as a Brown Dwarf, but they now think it is younger than originally estimated, which makes it lower mass and thus a planet, not a star.

Re: Why no career books?

I looked at the preview for the Spica books and like what I see. Looks they havent published in a while, however. Any chance there will be an update for the 2nd edition? Spica cannot update them to 2nd Edition due to the licensing issues. IF books were released for 2nd Edition, they would have to g...

The ringworld will not be gravitationally stable if it doesn't orbit within the same plane as AC-B. Just like all the planets in the old Solar System rotate in approximately the same plane (within a few degrees), the ringworld must rotate in the same plane as the other star in the system. While it c...
