I'm interested in more development on Social Perks, particularly the Wealthy tree - PP and CP are definitely the two Cosms where that applies most. I don't really see it coming back in Eternity, but one thing I really loved in oTorg was the actual rules for combating Kanawa in the stock market -- among other things, it was just super cool to see an RPG address solutions beyond punching people in the face. In the hopes that some flattery will inspire you to achieve great things (
), I must say I did not
see how Arcane Knowledges could be meaningfully preserved in a way that would make us oTorgians happy while not messing up Eternity's simple balance, and... that was done brilliantly.
Otherwise, just to second that yes, very much, while Electric Samurai are going to be cool (right? You promised.
)... well, frankly - and I know we're already kind of painted into this corner, but it's a little tiresome that the SE Asia book is 1) usually just Japan, and 2) basically the martial-arts supplement. By drawing it out to "Pan-Pacifica", you can totally break away from the first part, at least. At least in the first 90 days, you've only incorporated Japan, China, and Korea (and Taiwan.. *ahem*), but even just that offers us a lot more, culturally, than the bog-standard "ninja and samurai" tropes. Not to say I don't want to see them... but it would be cool to, well, de-emphasize them a little. They were a lot more exciting back in the '90s, before they'd been covered a thousand times. Frankly, Japan
has so much more to offer.
And whether they've been, ah, incorporated
or not (
) as we reach Year One, I'd definitely like some idea what's going on in Vietnam, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, Myanmar, and Mongolia.
