RIP Stan Lee

I'm not much of a Marvel fan, but it still sucks that such a component to Comic Book history has passed. https://www.npr.org/2018/11/12/106322838/a-marvel-of-a-man-stan-lee-dead-at-95 American comic book writer, editor, publisher and former president of Marvel Comics, Stan Lee, passed away today at ...

Re: Project Epsilon (Science Fantasy Wargame/Tabletop RPG concept)

Although I'm having a hard time seeing how tanks and power armor are seriously contested by something called a Carnie Technical, I love the descriptions you've given us so far :-D . Yeah, the Carnemicum are relatively weak, but make up for it with dirty tricks. The Carnie Technical is mostly focuse...

What started as a short fun way of expanding my universe with a short lecture set in the Custodial Protectorate about weapons, has devolved into something bigger. I've been writing from 12 AM to 12 PM nonstop. Writing style is a bit experimental, inspired by Steve's wonderful Undiscovered Frontiers ...

Edited The Hero Units, notably the Carnemicum to highlight the fact that Hybrids are those that bonded with an ArchMedusozoan, Pariarchs being the Elites and Leaders of the Carnemicum who are also Hybrids.

If you're still working on this, it might be a good idea to give an overview of the general types and categories of units/models in your hypothetical skirmish wargame. This might give a better idea of the scale of the battles involve and contextualize the heroes you've mentioned so far? That's true...

Invictus said: I do see what you mean by the Carnemicum, because they do read like they're from a later sourcebook in a 90s RPG line, which obligates them to have their own special rules and subsystems to make them stand out from the starting factions. It's very SLA Industries. Carnemicum was total...

I love these guys, I particularly liked Scandinavia, there was some genuinely evocative and horrifying stuff in that one to get us to the end result of cyborg space vikings.
Europe was surprisingly tough to write despite their small continent size and relatively (I thought) similar cultures.
