Re: Selling organs, and regeneration

It completely depends on the technobabble for how the regeneration works.

Re: Selling organs, and regeneration

Major surgery is still painful and incapacitating, even if you can recover in a single day.
Constantly having your organs removed and regrown sounds more horror story than sensible get rich quick...

I feel someone may have misunderstand needing a hand with getting a leg up in the afterlife.

Re: Shapechanging without alternate forms? Flying mounts?

It could be one form: horse, but with Wings: Switchable for the winged versus ground forms, for just one example. Riding versus war variety could be more an appearance or Elastic Skin if it could...

Re: Selling organs, and regeneration

They will pay for plasma, or legally, pay for your time.
I guess the problem is the same as with hidden money sources; laundering.
How do you "launder" body parts' sources?

Re: Selling organs, and regeneration

That would be an interesting NPC. One trying to make good on their body snatching/cutting past by acting as go-between for such a regrowth/regenerating PC.
I'm thinking The Repo Man from Repo: A...

Re: Pre-human civilizations on Earth

Lovecraftian monsters also dealt mainly with soft bodied low population biologicals and moving/sculpting rocks. That kind of stuff would probably hide in the fossil record quite well.

Once we...

Re: Human-octopus barter

Like people, they can have weird individual tastes.
I had a cat that was named Pepper for his insane loves of peppers and hot sauce, even if they'd never touched meat. His sister loved prunes.

One problem is that not only that technological species would have to be unknown. All of its other high intelligence relatives would as well. For humans, all other primates would have to be missing...

It seemed like they were making claims about reality not only the Star Trek universe.

Re: Human-octopus barter

Quick googling leads to studies showing rather marked differences in what does and does not taste bitter to cats. Saccharine doesn't taste bitter to them, not sweet either, but not bitter like it...

Re: Human-octopus barter

Yeah. If they're sapient, they're almost certainly going to want to kill others of their own kind in effective and innovative ways.

Boats that act as reverse submarines for them to bombard enemy...

Re: Human-octopus barter

I was doubtful initially too. But they literally don't have a functional gene for the sweet receptors. I wonder which came first; their lack of sweet tasting or their hypercarnivore diet.

Re: Human-octopus barter

Aromatics or whatever you call something that makes the sea water "smell" nice to them.
They may love cinnamon sticks, for example.

Re: Stretching the bounds of typical fantasy races -OR- What makes an elf?

They were about the same size as other actors in the original series. But it looks like they made them shorter for later series. Star Trek is prone to flanderization something fierce.

Re: Stretching the bounds of typical fantasy races -OR- What makes an elf?

They weren't short that I remember. Wikis even list their species as slightly taller than human on average. The first individual we see in the original series was slightly short, but that's all....

Re: Stretching the bounds of typical fantasy races -OR- What makes an elf?

I think most of us would agree that Klingons are space Orcs, and Vulcans are space Elves.
Ferengi could work as space goblins or even Zurich gnomes in DS9.

I can't think of any species that works...

Re: Stretching the bounds of typical fantasy races -OR- What makes an elf?

That is a weird trope. At least England and Wales have loads of Elvish myths. Scotland isn't known for many Dwarven myths that I know of.
Mostly, I thought Germany and Scandinavia were chock full...

Re: Gender as a social thing and patriarchal

What society has ever learned that fact for more than five minutes though?
Everyone demands revenge post-war. It's the rarity for a culture not to exact excessive consequences afterwards.

Re: Real-Life Weirdness

Generally as our instinctive need for equal trades even when that's now how normal abilities and lives really work.
Also we tend to assume that what was easily given is easily taken.

Re: Infra-red vision vs. dark vision...

Yes, but seeing as how not every animal has them, they can't be exceptionally good, right? Small cats have them, but big cats don't.

Re: Infra-red vision vs. dark vision...

Take it up with Wikipedia then. It defines brille as skin or scale in animals that lack eyelids using snakes as an example.
