Re: General Info, Q&A, etc.

I just realized something: with the Tyxan penchant for dropping bioweapons, viruses, bio-engineered creatures, and etc onto targets, even doing things like engineering those Tyxan hybrids, what if humanity never actually saw an actual Tyxan? Like what if we, as in humans, knew they were "elf-like" o...

Re: General Info, Q&A, etc.

That, and to justify the tactical use of small starfighters rather than boring, robo-controlled drones. Starfighters sort of become like gunboats around Jump Gates. How big are they here generally? Oh gosh, I guess about 20 meters in length to take into account the various internal components, stor...

Re: General Info, Q&A, etc.

-snip- The use of AI in Gate Construction as well as the use of ship engines to determine gate travel time is interesting. I'll be honest though, I chose Jump Gates because I wanted to justify the existence of Starfighter-class ships as a sort of lightweight and versatile Gate Offensive and Defensi...

Re: General Info, Q&A, etc.

Heretic, since Hardcore Regenesis relies on Jump Rings to go FTL, without anyone really developing an independent jump drive of sorts, I wonder if you might find this guy's homebrew Traveller setting useful, specifically on Jump Gates: https://wizardnebula.blogspot.com/2018/03/the-jump-gates.html Th...

I keep saying i'm back, and then get dragged into the joint Science Fantasy project my sister and I are working on (with a private Discord channel with other people too). 50 page "Introductory" Bible that is only halfway done and a 50-page story about a boy and his Eldritch Summon, but I still want...

Re: In StarCraft, what if Earth regressed?

Worst part is, you'd think, due to the huge numbers of uber nukes used on Korhal, that you'd have maybe giant cities surrounded by large, open expanses of radioactive desert.

I mean literally, the entire planet was carpet nuked. How the hell does that get turned into a Coruscant expy in just 4 years?

Personal implanted windshield wipers and other vanity stuff to make them forever FABULOUS. I love it. Nice idea. Thanks!

This idea looks neat. Would magical girls also possibly be the means of FTL travel in this idea? Hmm if it's hard-ish, perhaps there might not be artificial gravity on ships but how might magical girls help lrotect against acceration in your opinion?
