Real?

Yes it's real. Announced Saturday to the Moot and already exceeding its goals by a factor of fifteen.

Very real. Marc is finally realizing his goal of his vision of the OTU as a novel.

Jonathan Bland is a Decider, empowered by the Emperor himself to deal with the inevitable crises of empire. In the service of the Empire, he has killed more people than anyone in the history of Humanity, to save a hundred times as many. He died centuries ago, but they re-activate his recorded personality whenever a new threat appears. When the crisis is over, they expect he will meekly return to oblivion.

He has other ideas.
Some interesting implications for the OTU just in that blurb...

That's what I was thinking...

Not that I'm complaining, it's more in tune with my own vision of the Imperium than what the canon seems to say. But my eyes kind of popped when I read that blurb.

All of which have been in T5 since paid beta.

What surprises me is that such psycho killers as agents of the imperium have featured IMTU for about 3 decades now, and now I find that they're part of Marc's.

The blurb says they have been downloading him for centuries. So is it doable with TL13/14 technology or is it:
a - prototype TL15/16
b - relic technology
c - Ancient technology
d - doable at TL13/14 and I just hadn't noticed.

I really hope the answer is d...

Oh, and when do we get LBB:9 - Decider... ? :)

I'm pretty excited about this and can't wait to get my hardcover copy and enhanced ebook in March! Just the thought of all the additional background information I will be able to add to my campaign and help me flesh things out is enough to get me excited. :)

in T5.09
Effective cloning is at TL 13 and artificial person at TL 16. Note that Life insurance as a mustering out benefit is available whatever the TL of the world you retire off (well... there are no TL restriction stated). The "Archive" where your personnality is stored are located at a unspecified location.

have fun

A clone does not have the memories and personality of the original. You need to be able to copy the brain across for that.
What's the TL for memory transfer?
