Dude, you need a different company...I make $2700/month selling fast food for Taco Bueno. But then, I'm a gm....;)

I agree that the fad industry would take off like a rocket. Has anyone thought about what the "Life of the Mind" of an average middle class Homeline person is? I don't think I saw anything in TT on that....and I'm too lazy to get up to search out the book! :)

Has anyone run anything on Homeline? There was an old TT RPG in the 80's (Time and Time again) which dealt with a group of Voltigeurs (controlled by the UN) who controlled TT tech. Occasionally the GM would have adventures to keep TT tech out of terrorist hands and the like. Anyone done anything similiar with IW? The potential is definitely there.....

Q: GM, are you using the d20 rules system?
A: No. GURPS is fun. D20 games are not fun. The GM says so.

Playing d20/3.5 makes Baby Jesus cry.

I think they'll still lose their monopoly - there will just be too many new players for them to suppress them all. OTOH the price of good gem quality diamonds probably won't drop that much - they are still going to be reasonably uncommon and expensive to find and bring back.
