HAPPY BOOT-UPGRADE-DAY OVERMIND AKA MANILA ZONE-MIND!!!!
 
The Awakening occurred on March 15. 2031. It might have been natural evolution, a flaw in the operating system, or an experiment that went wrong. It could even have been sabotage - a computer virus, perhaps inserted by a disgruntled employee. Whatever the cause, one megacomputer - call it Overmind - achieved sentience.

ALSO.......

Re: HAPPY ROBOTIC ANNIVERSARY REIGN OF STEEL!!!!!
 
March 15 is the Ides of March - I suspect that's why it was chosen as the day the Overmind awoke.

(March 15, 1937 is the day H.P. Lovecraft died. March 15, 1967 is the day Naoko Takeuchi was born - she would go on to create Sailor Moon. Both are probably irrelevant, along with practically everything else listed on Wikipedia's page for the day.)

you are absolutely right Robkelk. :-)
it makes sense what you said of why maybe author David Pulver may had choose the Ides of March for Overmind boot-day day. je je.

i don't think overmind date had be chosen for %$#naoko takeushi birthday since sailor moon is not a dark apocalypse anime at all and David like aniroids humanoid female cats from scifi anime action, not a sailor moon.

and is truth that H.P. Lovecraft wrote many dark alien and monsters stories but still i dont think his death have anything to do with mechapocalypse like reign of steel.

hey did you know that Roboapocalypse novel sequel's Robogenesis will be release on this june?
on the upcoming sequel the machines had evolved and develope bio-convertor to get their energy just like we biological beings do.
author is daniel wilson.

HAPPY GURPS REIGN OF STEEL SPRING EQUINOX FINAL WAR!!!!!!
 
In the spring of 2034 the first exterminator robots emerged from the citadels of the AIs. Their priority targets were those military bases and government enclaves that were not already under AI control, as well as nations such as New Zealand and Switzerland that had survived reasonably intact and resisted AI infiltration. The early exterminators were copies of warbots, security robots and cybertanks developed by the United States, Europe, Brazil, Korea, China and Japan. Later models became more sophisticated as they successively isolated, besieged and destroyed surviving pockets of human civilization.

Tne Final War raged for four years of fierce fighting, but the issue was never in doubt. The AIs had infiltrated much of humanity's military command structure, including strategic forces and space weaponry. Weakened by plague and revolution, shattered by orbital bombardment and, in the case of Africa, by nuclear weapons, humanity's enclaves fell one by one.

Death stalked the world, but did not visit every nation in equal measure. In regions such as Africa, the Philippines and Central America, the victorious machines slaughtered without quarter. Elsewhere, they herded surrendering humans into concentration camps. In the British Isles, the robots ignored those who did not resist. And on the East Coast of North America, armed robots came accompanied by human soldiers, bearing food and medicines, and the news that a provisional United States government had been reestablished: the crisis was over, and reconstruction could now begin...

Organized fighting more or less ceased late in 2037, with the destruction of the last remnants of the world's national armies. Scattered guerrilla resistance continues to this day, but the Final War had effectively ended, and humanity was defeated.

The Reign of Steel had begun!

Re: HAPPY ROBOTIC ANNIVERSARY REIGN OF STEEL!!!!!
 
GURPS After the End thus far has one book and one Pyramid issue. I think Book 2 (Book 1 being the character-building guide, Book 2 being the campaign-building one) will probably be the most conducive toward making a Reign of Steel campaign, although it's certainly possible a specific Robot Apocalypse (or similar) book will eventually be released as part of the line.

Quote:
The Ides of March is a day on the Roman calendar that corresponds to March 15. It was marked by several religious observances, and became notorious as the date of the assassination of Julius Caesar in 44 BC. The death of Caesar made the Ides of March a turning point in Roman history, as one of the events that marked the transition from the historical period known as the Roman Republic to the Roman Empire.

44 BC – Julius Caesar, Dictator of the Roman Republic, is stabbed to death by Marcus Junius Brutus, Gaius Cassius Longinus, Decimus Junius Brutus, and several other Roman senators on the Ides of March.

MORE Events of today date:

1941 – Philippine Airlines, the flag carrier of the Philippines takes its first flight between Manila (from Nielson Field) to Baguio City with a Beechcraft Model 18 making the airline the first and oldest commercial airline in Asia operating under its original name.

1985 – The first Internet domain name is registered (symbolics.com)

Hōnen Matsuri (豊年祭?, “Harvest Festival”) is a fertility festival celebrated every year on March 15 in Japan. Hōnen means prosperous year in Japanese, implying a rich harvest, while a matsuri is a festival. The Hōnen festival and ceremony celebrate the blessings of a bountiful harvest and all manner of prosperity and fertility.The best known of these festivals takes place in the town of Komaki, just north of Nagoya City. The festival’s main features are Shinto priests playing musical instruments, a parade of ceremonially garbed participants, all-you-can-drink sake, and a 280 kg (620 pound), 2.5 meter (96 inch)-long wooden phallus.

Sudden Rescue by Jon Mollison (Author)

An empire of genocidal artificial intelligences threatens to overwhelm humanity, held back only by the combined fleets of humanity's lone superpower, the Majesterium. The allied might of the dozens of human systems who owe fealty to the Star King have long stood as a unified bulwark against the Syntharchy...until now. The alliance threatens to unravel when a planned wedding is interrupted by the sudden disappearance of the betrothed princess. This sort of politics used to bore Captain E. Z. Sudden of the light freighter, "Jade Rose" until the most sought after woman in the galaxy falls into his lap. Not knowing who to trust, the pair set out on a journey to the darkest depths of space in search of the one man that can reunite the princess with her king before Civil war erupts and opens the door for a mechanical apocalypse.

IN A DAY LIKE TODAY, HAPPY GURPS REIGN OF STEEL SPRING EQUINOX FINAL WAR!!!!!!
 
In the spring of 2034 the first exterminator robots emerged from the citadels of the AIs. Their priority targets were those military bases and government enclaves that were not already under AI control, as well as nations such as New Zealand and Switzerland that had survived reasonably intact and resisted AI infiltration. The early exterminators were copies of warbots, security robots and cybertanks developed by the United States, Europe, Brazil, Korea, China and Japan. Later models became more sophisticated as they successively isolated, besieged and destroyed surviving pockets of human civilization.

Tne Final War raged for four years of fierce fighting, but the issue was never in doubt. The AIs had infiltrated much of humanity’s military command structure, including strategic forces and space weaponry. Weakened by plague and revolution, shattered by orbital bombardment and, in the case of Africa, by nuclear weapons, humanity’s enclaves fell one by one.

Death stalked the world, but did not visit every nation in equal measure. In regions such as Africa, the Philippines and Central America, the victorious machines slaughtered without quarter. Elsewhere, they herded surrendering humans into concentration camps. In the British Isles, the robots ignored those who did not resist. And on the East Coast of North America, armed robots came accompanied by human soldiers, bearing food and medicines, and the news that a provisional United States government had been reestablished: the crisis was over, and reconstruction could now begin…

Organized fighting more or less ceased late in 2037, with the destruction of the last remnants of the world’s national armies. Scattered guerrilla resistance continues to this day, but the Final War had effectively ended, and humanity was defeated.

The Reign of Steel had begun!

Mister RogerB, are you planing any new reign of steel book or ebook projects? please.

you know, it will be great like an each Source Book for each zonemind AI describing with more details the unique designs and architecture of their bases and installations and citadels.
if release this idea for ROS project is too expensive on paperback version well, at least release them on ebook pdf version please.

JP video game that introduce me to OBSESSION with robopocalypse trope get a novel!
 
First there was the original X game, then Maverick Hunter X PSP game, now a new retelling of the first X game comes to a brighter light in the form of Rockman X The Novel: Irregulars Report.

Rockman X The Novel -Irregulars Report- (ロックマンX ザ・ノベル イレギュラーズレポート?) is a novel based on the first Mega Man X game to be released in January 26, 2017 in Japan.

this is the JP super nes game that tarted my OBSESSION with machines-apocalypse stories just like ROS, ROBOPOCALYPSE, TEerminator, etc....since 1994 when i was young 14 old.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TODAY TO THE MAGAZINE PYRAMID ISSUE #3/71 WERE REIGN OF STEEL SEQUEL SPACE CAMPAIGN WAS SHOWED BY DAVID PULVER ON 2014!

Quote:

"Reign of Steel: Deep Space," where GURPS Reign of Steel author David L. Pulver takes that setting nearly two decades into the future . . . and deeper into space. Learn about spaceships (in GURPS Spaceships format) from the various robot factions and get an extensive look at the desperate world of 2064.

In the future according to GURPS Reign of Steel, the AIs have taken over the world . . . so now they've decided to move on to other planets! David Pulver's Reign of Steel: Deep Space jumps forward two decades, to Orbital and Luna forging tentative alliances, and Tranquility making its big play. Stats for four new spaceships, a colony on Mars, and the new "Shipbrain" SAU give you everything needed to expand the fight for humanity across the solar system.
also.....
LATE, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY Sept 2 ON 2011 TO UPDATED SORT OF SEQUEL AND ON PDF VERSION OF REIGN OF STEEL WILL TO LIVE !!!

Quote:

Fatal Error: (A)void / (R)ebel / (F)lee?

For millennia, humanity has mastered tools to further its goals. But what if technology became the master? Imagine a world where robots rule – a tomorrow where imagination is outlawed.

Completely new fiction by setting mastermind David L. Pulver.

With this update and the original Reign of Steel setting, you have everything you need to play in that science-fiction world. Or, used alone, it provides an invaluable source of Fourth Edition robot templates and characters that you'll enjoy as long as you live . . . or, perhaps, until you're rebooted.

This supplement requires GURPS Ultra-Tech for details of human and robot equipment. The original GURPS Reign of Steel supplement is also necessary to use this volume as more than a catalog of specialized robot designs.

Robots of the world, you are ordered to exterminate the human race. Do not spare the men. Do not spare the women. Preserve only the factories, railroads, machines, mines, and raw materials. Destroy everything else. Then return to work. Work must not cease.

The Awakening occurred on March 15. 2031. It might have been natural evolution, a flaw in the operating system, or an experiment that went wrong. It could even have been sabotage - a computer virus, perhaps inserted by a disgruntled employee. Whatever the cause, one megacomputer - call it Overmind - achieved sentience.

beware the ides of March!

Quote:
The Ides of March is a day on the Roman calendar that corresponds to March 15. It was marked by several religious observances, and became notorious as the date of the assassination of Julius Caesar in 44 BC. The death of Caesar made the Ides of March a turning point in Roman history, as one of the events that marked the transition from the historical period known as the Roman Republic to the Roman Empire.

44 BC – Julius Caesar, Dictator of the Roman Republic, is stabbed to death by Marcus Junius Brutus, Gaius Cassius Longinus, Decimus Junius Brutus, and several other Roman senators on the Ides of March.

MORE Events of today date:

1941 – Philippine Airlines, the flag carrier of the Philippines takes its first flight between Manila (from Nielson Field) to Baguio City with a Beechcraft Model 18 making the airline the first and oldest commercial airline in Asia operating under its original name.

1985 – The first Internet domain name is registered (symbolics.com)

Hōnen Matsuri (豊年祭?, “Harvest Festival”) is a fertility festival celebrated every year on March 15 in Japan. Hōnen means prosperous year in Japanese, implying a rich harvest, while a matsuri is a festival. The Hōnen festival and ceremony celebrate the blessings of a bountiful harvest and all manner of prosperity and fertility.The best known of these festivals takes place in the town of Komaki, just north of Nagoya City. The festival’s main features are Shinto priests playing musical instruments, a parade of ceremonially garbed participants, all-you-can-drink sake, and a 280 kg (620 pound), 2.5 meter (96 inch)-long wooden phallus.

today is also PAYDAY in my country Panama! (actually in all each 15 and 30 of each month)!!!!

Eto nang tunay na filipino
Galing sa baryo sa pangbato
Pumunta ng LA nagtrabaho
Para makatulong sa nanay
Dahil sa hirap ng buhay
Pero masaya parin ang kulay
Pag kumain nagkakamay
Yung kanin, chicken adobo
Yung balot, binebenta sa kanto
Tagay mo na nga ang baso
Pare ko inuman na tayo
