Re: GodNet vs. Reality

More seriously, do you have ideas of what an Ord would buy for use on GodNet only? For the moment, with the exception of clothing, I come up blank. Vehicles, housing, little luxuries. Sure, those things probably aren’t “needed” but even clothes aren’t necessary in a virtual world. And maybe just th...

Re: Jumanji 2

I loved the original (well, the original remake) so I’m sure I’d love it.

Re: Kuro

If that seems too silly, think of how pervasive the dislike of numbers like 13 or 666 are in western culture. Otis Elevators, one of the biggest manufacturers of elevators in the US, estimates that about 85% of the large buildings they install elevators in don’t service a 13th floor. (Sometimes the...

Re: GodNet vs. Reality

I like the idea that it doesn’t sustain your real body by default but there is a way to do that, by Miracle or tech or a combination of them, for people who need or want to be in the GodNet for extended periods of time. And then maybe you can have “GodNet Martyrs” who knowingly stay in there while t...

Re: GodNet vs. Reality

Well, it tastes like a juicy steak. I know that steak doesn't exist. I know that when you put it in your mouth, the GodNet is telling your brain that it is juicy and delicious. But after surviving the horrors of the Reality War, you know what I realize? Ignorance is bliss. Does this mean that I'll ...

Re: Reliquaries

And everybody else is described as "The Church Police", "The Inquisition", "The Techquisition." So, the way I understand it, which may be entirely wrong, is... everybody else is kinda faceless? Take the Church Police, change a stat or two and name them. Unless you're l...

Re: Kuro

Oh and 4s count as 0s because 4 is a "bad luck" number in Japan. Of course, because 4 is “shi” which is too close to “shinu” which means death, and death is the biggest taboo you can have. Though it can also be pronounced as “yon”, just as “shichi” (7) can be pronounced “nana” to be polit...
