Re: What if half of everyone dissappeared? Building/Gaming a Rapture Scenario

There is a 1 in four chance for every airliner that they will suddenly be left without a pilot. But even more devastating is the fact that all high traffic thoroughfares will suddenly be jammed by...

Re: Ultra-Tech AI rules

Buying up your intelligence is a pretty rare thing. Assuming every AI starts at a baseline intelligence most would stay there and it would take a very long time for most of the exceptions to get...

Re: The World of Dreams

A motel by a freeway. It has quite a large dock for ships, and a store for food. But there are no actual houses anywhere near.

Re: Keeping humans relevant in the shadow of TL10 AI.

I would not say it is a living organism.



I don't have a ghost right now.


This is true. Context matters. And the context for Linnaean classification is biology.

Re: Are Powers Overpriced?

That makes it legal for you to carry a gun. It doesn't mean people won't look at you and say "Hey, that guys wearing a gun."

Re: Are Powers Overpriced?

Walking around in a secret ID with no weapons is. Of course I've never seen much point in designing a super who had powers that did nothing more than match off-the-shelf weaponry.

Re: Keeping humans relevant in the shadow of TL10 AI.

Uploading a consciousness doesn't make the resulting AI alive. They call them ghosts in THS (and in Ghost in the Shell) for a reason.

How much would it cost for the power to make your gun invisible and intangible?

Re: Transforming Angel Mecha?!

Sword. Personally I'd actually go the super vehicles route. Sure it's more work, but you'd get something closer to what you really have in mind, I suspect. This doesn't sound like an off the rack...

Re: [Magic] Colleges And Prerequisites: What Are They?

My pet project is creating magical styles that correspond to historical schools of philosophy. So far I've done the Ionians, the Pythagoreans, the Cynics and the Legalists.

Fission still happens. Just slow enough that you can't achieve critical mass.

Re: New Reality Seeds

...it's not like this would be the only IW setting where stuff that works in one world won't work in another. Take as read that in this world fission is hard but fusion isn't.

Re: [Magic] Colleges And Prerequisites: What Are They?

I would actually think there's a mixture of subjectivity and objectivity in how magic is structured.

Re: What TL is the original Star Trek?

Re: Keeping humans relevant in the shadow of TL10 AI.

My interest in that issue is limited because it's like floating bubble cities in Venus's atmosphere. They may seem cool but what's the point? What's the incentive to make a sapient AI even for...
