Starting this here to discuss the new book. If it belongs elsewhere, I guess we can try and move it.

Even though the vast majority of the content here has been on the Moot for a while now, I figured it would be good to have a public discussion thread.

Talk amongst yourselves. [img]smile.gif[/img]

Or if you like...

M. Genghis waves tentacled hand-stalk at General JR and manipulates him with Hiver-mumbo-jumbo!

Worth your time, either way

I have placed links in both the Stellar Reaches website and my own personal blog, as well as adding it to my sig here. Doing my part to get the word out!

I am so thankful that this has been officially released. Finally, the OTU is no longer stuck in some decrepit time loop in a history that's already been written. It can move forward. The worlds of Charted Space are devastated but recovering, and I imagine that in another 120 years or so, many of the great negative influences of the Virus Era will have passed. Now is a period that gives the best of both worlds (CT and TNE), all in one package. The campaign I've been running in the Fourth Imperium has been a blast, and I'm looking forward to seeing the setting continue to develop.

Keep It Up, Avenger,
Flynn

Amen to that!

I dunno actually... I think the events from 1200-1248 were pretty darn devastating. While things may have quietened down a bit now, the impression *I* get is that civilisation barely survived by the skin of its teeth. True, things are more hopeful now, and the worst is hopefully over, but I think the future is going to be totally unlike what has come before. After the madness of the past few decades (not to mention the civil war before that), things will have changed irrevocably.

That's just how I see it anyway . Either way, though, I like it [img]smile.gif[/img]

I like the potential the new setting offers as an adventurer's playground.

I'm having a hard time coming up with an adventure that wouldn't fit into the setting somehow.

It also offers the chance to update the sci-fi a little bit with the lid being liftef on cybernetics and sentient machines.

Think of the fun you could have as a Star Viking team on a sentient ship - especially if it has an avatar like Rommie [img]graemlins/file_23.gif[/img]

Yeah, I think it literally opens it up - While the Rebellion was a bit stifling because there wasn't much idea where it was ultimately headed, this is a nice fusion of the eras.

My only disappointment is the state of the Regency, but I'll live with it. [img]smile.gif[/img]

I toss my hat into the ring as well...

It indeed (kicks the Hiver off stage)propels the TU timeline ahead where you can no longer have to fret in darkness (or in daylight-savings time). Like Flynn, our Tne-set traveller campaign finds this an exciting time of opportunity, adventure, and of rebuilding.

And there's all sorts of room to wiggle and finagle your GM inspired evil..I mean &lt;ahem&gt; storyline weaving into the fabric of this background for your player's enjoyment.

I step away from the podium to go set fire to something new, today!
