Re: [IW] Timeline Breakout Scenario

Of course, you do need infrastructure for those farms and mines. You've got to make and repair the tractors, and bring in fuel and fertilizer, for starters.

I don't know that making thousands of...

Red vegetation that's painfully poisonous growing all over some indoor habitat.

Re: [IW] Timeline Breakout Scenario

It sounds like the corporation has only discovered uninhabited world lines, or else it has very intentionally chosen to ignore the inhabited ones.

If they only ever find uninhabited ones, Infinity...

Re: [IW] The Economics of Crosstime Travel

I've always advocated that industrial conveyors should have easily swapped pulsed power systems. If you can load a pre-charged power system and change your cargo in 10 minutes, you double your...

Re: [IW] Looking for Lost Loves

One thing to remember about the "Lost Love" Scenario is you've got a limited supply of worlds to steal people from. Earth-Beta is probably your most notable example.

Patrolmen on these worlds are...

Re: [IW] Looking for Lost Loves

And this is interesting, because they kidnap narcissistic versions of themselves who don't mind being the heir to a bigger pile of money on a world-line that has more possibilities than their own....

Re: Food & other stuff production in a farm

Not actually an issue. If you don't use it to gain Money, but you still use the product and give it to others to use, its still a good canidate for independent income, particularly if the substance...

Re: Dungeon Fantasy races in a real world medieval town

As has been mentioned, the time and location change things a lot.

Also, its been stated these people show up in a 'Town', and THAT will shake things up a lot. Most things big enough that you or I...

Re: [IW] Ordinary Worlds with valuables!

On the other hand, if you are a noted author on homeline, its worth your time to send agents to scour the quanta for works you have the copyright for and are ripe fruit ready to fall into your lap.

Re: A new magical airship scheme

Of course, doesn't it made a dome rather than a sphere? you've got to worry about the bottom of your balloon. Though it is nice to have a magic pump driving it.

Re: What will you not allow?

Yes, the game can certainly be played that way. In the game I'm currently playing, it probably wouldn't work, for various reasons. Perhaps one day I'll play that way. But not this campaign.

Re: New Reality Seeds

Is the chicago pile of comparable size to either of those reactors? And can you get everything in place for a proper reactor meltdown before things go wrong? I've always gotten the impression modern...

Re: [IW] Ordinary Worlds with valuables!

Midas-1

This world doesn't actually exist. At least, that's what they tell you! A persistent rumor holds that one of the classified world lines has far more gold in it than earth. The exact...

Re: Monster Hunting After the End

Power level will depend largely on what sort of game you want to play. What does success look like?

Escaping the camps and setting up somewhere you can raise your children without fear of being...

Re: New Reality Seeds

This scenario has never posited the destruction of Chicago. In fact, it explicitly says "the US was not materially harmed". This isn't a nuclear bomb going off, its closer to a reactor meltdown. And...

Re: How could humans have a chance against civilized orcs?

Exactly what an orc is will vary from setting to setting. But supposing that you have bigger, stronger brutes that use proper logistics and training.

Re: A Setting For an Information Elemental

A Setting For an Information Elemental

I'm curious what sort of a setting an information elemental would actually live in. Everything that comes to mind for me ends up being very bland, very kitchen-sink-ish, or produces something better...

Re: [Blog] n-Body Politics

I missed that. For some reason I thought you'd be using raw hydrogen to fuel the pulse drives. That certainly makes the torches cheaper than the pulse drives.

It still leaves fusion rockets...

Re: Lost in Dreams (Michael)

Traub doesn't really respond to Michael's comments until he touches it. When Michael touches the burn, Traub yells in pain and tries to get away. The sense doesn't flow through Michael's hands.

Re: What will you not allow?

I ban common sense, but in many ways that's because I give to it all players for free: a player doing something obviously stupid is a good sign I haven't explained the situation properly.
