Gencon

One nice RP aspect, is that the ~ week regardless of distance, is useful when 'dodging' bounty hunters and the law ;) Lots of steampunk especially outfits giving me flashbacks of firefly! As far as time in jump I figure the week is a safety value so you can travel faster but run risks when you do! ...

An interesting idea

Of course it doesn't necessarily have to be the internet. For instance what if certain forms of technology have their knowledge kept secret and in safe locations known only to say a sect of people purely so it can be safeguarded and not for example abused such as jump drive tech or just the true his...

Interesting

Hyperdrive instead of jump drive...

Have to admit I'm not a fan of its takes a week regardless of how far or how short you travel...

Food for thought.

T20 meet Pathfinder

Out of curiosity any of you who have run this system have you ever run into anyone who designs a Zhodani character with psionic abilities yet doesn't bother to select either psionic training or a psionic ability in their feat selections? Just curious might be remembering that a little wrong but I do...

Sort of related, does anyone change the +effect to damage rule?
How about Athletics?

What else would you do if you had to decide on this?

Gurps & other details

Bought Gurps Space 2nd edition and got a little too wrapped in system generation! Anyway been looking at character generation and decided to alter it slightly. So far each character starts off with 2 skills based on where they were raised with extra skills based on their education score. If the syst...

Food for thought

Am know thinking that maybe instead of having the climax be the return of the warship that disabled the Home Gate and ending the last war with the nanotech simply have the Gate reactivate meaning they would then have the means to find out what happened on the other side of the Gate perhaps even find...

A theory

I'm more fond of the idea that the PCs find out someone did achieve immortality and then discover this individual spent several aeons trying to find a "cure" for it! Given PC mentality it would probably be enough to make them want to find out more only to discover the means that lone individual used...

So update version 1.1

Lets see the basics first... Cronor Subsector: thinking of renaming this the Chronos sector Inabitable worlds: Cantrel: TL up to 9, still low population due to the gate detonation making travel to it either very long or precarious if from Thengo. Thengo: TL up to A, population up to 7 due to refugee...

Hmm...

In Babylon V as I recall the primary component for their version of this was that for one life to be extended another life would have to be sacrificed as part of the formulae. Of course there's also nanotech where nanomachines are injected and whilst the patient is left in a coma under suitable supe...

Been reading up on this courtesy of enworld. Still looking to figure out some details. Now the sword worlds being home to a largely mercenary space viking style culture. The worlds destroyed were used as bases for the Empire seeking to control just how much damage these roving mercenaries could infl...

No using subsectors as solar systems...

Its a public forum - feel free... As to using subsector maps as solar systems - that doesn't really hold the suspenders of disbelief up very well at all. True, okay then Fulacin I believe in the Rhylanor subsector has a tainted atmsophere, type a starport and a very high tech level. So a regular st...

One of which was having each subsector map be an actual solar system so rather than go all out to redesign ...

Been wondering about system generation. So the spinward marches book lists the various worlds in each subsector but not how many planets, gas giants and so on present and got thinking just how much detail do I need to go into to get this up and running?

Well, I could settle for the one season 1980s show as well. And yes, the SciFi "look and feel" for the earthers was quite nice. Liked the fighters as well. I fear that the show will be difficult to translate into a game since it relies a lot on the interaction between Buck and Wilma and those often...

Interesting ideas...

The way I was thinking of going is that when humanity first found the hypernet gates they had spread out until they found the gate that led to the Spinward Marches. They used it to spread even further but found signs that there had been life on this side of the gate but it had inexplicably ended sev...
