Re: Companies Finance

In addition, the executive officers of such an enterprise are expecting to divide around 1% of the gross revenues of the corporation as their compensation (with the CEO getting 50% of the...

Re: How to Make Ultra-Tech Combat Exciting (TL10)?

One way to get survivable combat is to have restricted weapons. For example, it is highly unlikely that any government will allow any non-governmental personal to carry firearms (or beam weapons,...

Re: Companies Finance

It is all handwavium anyway because you are talking about market distorting levels of debt. $800 billion is the debt of entire industries in the USA, so you are probably looking at having the...

Re: [DF] Disadvantages for clerics

I disagree. Power Investiture is already exclusive to a specific deity, so it does not make sense to reward a cleric by giving them extra limitations for something that they are already limited by. ...

Re: How to Make Ultra-Tech Combat Exciting (TL10)?

The problem is that there is no particular reason for Ultra-Tech weapons to do less damage than High-Tech weapons. A TL9 ETC Anti-Material Rifle, 15mmCL, equipped with APEP ammunition is dealing...

Re: Yrth In Spaaacccceee!

The real question becomes the rate of technological change. If the mages of Yrth possess a way to destroy explosives like gunpowder, the nations of Yrth are not going to develop solid chemical...

Re: Companies Finance

In any case, $800 billion is a lot of debt for a corporation to possess. The capital repayment is $40 billion per year for 20 years, meaning that a company would have to have $80 billion per year of...

Re: Companies Finance

Unfortunately, Social Engineering does not reflect the lunacy of reality, which is that lenders can be just as irrational as borrowers. If that had not been the case, we would not have gotten the...

Re: spell-like abilities

Charms are interesting because they allow characters who do not want to be dedicated mages to cast higher-level spells. You still need Magery 0 though to cast secular spells in normal or low mana...

Re: New Reality Seeds

But the I-Cops (and the US equivalent) would have to have agents on every corresponding point to the White House in every Q5 timeline. And the White House is not the only high value target. For...

Re: Ceremonial Magic and the 15+ Skill Requirement

It depends on the setting. Ceremonial magic is supposed to be limiting because it is so powerful. If you have such a change, low mana becomes less of an issue for ceremonial magic because you can...

Re: New Reality Seeds

Yes, the IW setting does not make that much sense when you think of it (as if some overarching deity is playing around with the psychologist of the people of the Homeline governments...). It could...

Re: Reducing an Opponent's ST or DX for 1 Skill Roll

You can never use TK as a free action, though you could potentially use it without concentration with either Reduced Time 1 or Reflexive. I would suggest reflexive because I think that it would...

Re: Pictures for NPCs

Just type 'sexy subgroup woman' or 'sexy subgroup men' into Google images and make sure you have SafeSearch on. You can easily find 50 English women, 50 Japanese women, 50 Korean women, etc.

Re: Zombie Template

Humans do not do terribly well against predators that have lost their fear of humanity. The Ghost In The Darkness (1996) is a movie about two male loins (the Tsavo Man-Eaters) that probably killed...

Re: propulsion system for star wars speeders?

I think that people do not really understand energy when they make up those numbers. One gram of matter possesses 90 TJ of energy when annihilated, which is enough to accelerate a 30 metric ton...

Re: Zombie Template

That was more due to fortuitous circumstances than anything else. Humans would likely have never advanced beyond TL0 if the end of the last Ice Age had not killed off the majority of the megafauna.

Re: propulsion system for star wars speeders?

With the energy levels used in Star Wars, the larger capital ships probably use artificial black holes to create their gravity and to generate their electricity. The fuel used for the space fighters...

Re: New Sci Fi Setting Seeds

Since WWII technology depended on fossil fuels and there would likely not be any fossil fuels on a Ringworld, they would collapse back to the technology of the 1860s (when everything could depend on...

Re: Zombie Template

I have to agree, though I think that lone humans were easy enough to pick off by Ice Age predators because they suffered from terminal stupidity. The Ice Age predators of humanity (the American...

Re: "Medieval" fantasy with tech 2?

I disagree. The people in the 12th century AD were more advanced than the 2nd century AD, the people of the 2nd century AD were more advanced than the 8th century BC, etc. Low-Tech was written in...

Re: New Sci Fi Setting Seeds

Ringworlds possess millions of times the area of Earth, so humans would be very spread out (around 1 person per million square kilometers). Humanity would go extinct within a century just because it...

Re: Zombie Template

The traits listed in Bio-Tech are only a suggestion. Any non-supernatural trait and non-social trait should have genetic components. Just give your zombies the traits that you want them to have and...

Re: Zombie Template

Bad Temper and Berserk would probably explain the behavior of a 'realistic' zombie, with the self-control number dropping as the condition progresses, while Odious Personal Habit (Cannibal) would fit...

Re: propulsion system for star wars speeders?

Star Wars is a bit of a technological puzzle. They have TL10 medical technology and computing (without nanotech) and TL11^ spacecraft. Their android technology is actually quite primitive, probably...
