Re: Things you'd like to know about Pan-Pacifica

I'd like to know more about what makes Pan-Pacifica unique beyond the grab bag of mutants, electric samurai, and inter dimensional zaibatsus. How does the Law of Intrigue affect Storm Knight missions in the reality? In a world where betrayal is baked into almost any kind of interaction, how much hea...

Re: Tell me of your Core Earth characters

I made a Core Earth guy for Dark Skies when other folks are running. He's Blake Rodriguez, a former Secret Service agent who had his Moment of Crisis protecting the U.S. President (not sure which one - lot of government turnover in Torg). Since the group was a bit low on macho action dude energy, he...

Re: PC Transformation Ideas

If Cyberpapacy cyberpunk is "the future as perceived by 1980's futurists", then there would be a strong through-line of Japanese zaibatsus as an expression of fears of Asian global market dominance. This is, of course, the same strain of thinking that gave us Nippon Tech back in the day, b...

Re: Fires of Ra Discussion and Questions

I found what appears to be repeated text in Act II, starting on page 29. Under "Race to the Station", we get a version of the text describing the pursuit of the train, going on to list the number of enemies pursuing the PCs. The next page, 30, has what appears to be a different version of ...

Re: Cyberdeck operations

I think it depends on how retro-futuristic Cyberpapacy will be. It could be a setting where things are Neuromancer-style, with a mix of analog and digital based on the best guess William Gibson and his peers could make. Or it could be futurism based on what currently exists in our real world, with t...

Re: Fringe Question on World Laws

My approach for transformation and insta-kill disconnections is to...not use them. I can get how they may work from a setting standpoint to provide the NPC cast that is expected in a given locale, but as a thing player characters actually have to worry about, no thanks. IF a player actually was okay...
