Re: Cyberpapacy Preview #7 - The GodNet (Part 1)

Living in one of the largest French-speaking cities in the world, which happens to be dominated by a big mountain with a cross on it, I am … intrigued by the idea of the GodNet Mountain.

Why not just have him be a former student who took part in the May 68 protests? It'd fit, if Malraux's arming nationalist/neo-nazi street punks. (As he did in oTorg.) Any which way, I figure the important thing with the senior citizen is that he regularly mumbles that this whole thing is just like A...

Re: Cyberpapacy Preview #1 - One Year Later...

There's no question that Tron was an early influence on the cyberpunk genre - despite being more science fantasy than science fiction - and entirely appropriate to be referenced. But Tron is also an anti-communist manifesto under the hood. Released in 1982 in the heart of the Cold War, it has a Com...

Re: The Storm has a Name

Oh, I know this phenomenon well. The name of the storm is Eddie: https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/1GwAAOSwFytaKr7l/s-l300.jpg My theory, incidentally, is that we're looking at a unique sixth-planting gospog .

The sloth (and stalenger) have full write ups in Ruins of the Living Land. I think the sloth’s Strength tops out at 18. I don’t suppose we’re getting a similar booklet for the Nile. I would probably let the Robot Man be a little stronger and smarter and less charismatic and spirited. Ah, I didn't k...
