Re: 2300AD on Pre-Order

The problem was, the version of Earth presented in the Earth/Cybertech Sourcebook was a pretty nice place, not cyberpunk-y/Bladerunner-y at all. Thus the cyberpunk bits seemed tacked-on and ill-thought out. I have the luxury of designing the Core from the start, and while it ain't cyberpunk (the '8...

Re: 2300AD on Pre-Order

Glad to hear that is not the final cover. Hostile environments are the order of the day. Even worlds that are Earth-like eg Aurore would have to be quite alien. It is not so much that 2300AD militaristic (although a permanent state of war does exist on French Arm) - it is that the frontier is danger...

Re: Bibliography and Filmography for 2300AD

Blade Runner is Earth of 2300AD and maybe Tiranne. But, the colonies are wide open spaces either garden worlds like Firefly (otherwise, any type of environment from Hoth to Tatoonie to Water World to something that resembles Southern California/Germany) to mining worlds like Outland (hostle environm...

Lots of suggestions for Zhodani Campaigns contained within the AM. The easiest one to do is the frontier model - in which Core Expeditions would be akin to Star Trek. In fact, the whole Star Trek would offer an excellent backdrop to any Zhodani campaign. The only thing that one would have to change ...

How many posts before we get a picture...anyhow, I agree with all of you...but in 41st century - Sic semper tyrannis is thoroughly corrupted.

Sic semper tyrannis

Does anyone have a cool image that can be tied back to the Third Imperium that features this slogan - Sic semper tyrannis (death to tyrants). It could be a sword and the Imperial Sunburst or whatever. And, if have it can they share it. Thanks. As I need the image for a Con game in August.

One could always also ask James Maliszewski what he used the Answerin played in his campaign.

BITS has a supplement 101 Religions which would give you 100 plus one plot points. The Man Who Would Be God in the TNE mainbook is a standard retelling of the Cargo cult status.
