  1. Using CP V3 (yes yes, I know), with a flavor being a perverse combination of Transmetropolitan, Transhuman Space (gotta love memetic warfare), and Bubblegum Crisis. The players are a cadre of a Roller Medtech, A Edger Fixer, A Collective (homegrown Altcult) Biotech (rather infamous for designing custom pleasure morphs), and a C-Metal combat cybertech. players have been playing the low level Diplomatic game (read: hustlers) between they various Altcults (trying to keep things low key and by in large succeeding), and bumping into other enclaves which may or may not be freindly. Cu
  2. The teaser image looks retarded..... Which is sad, because Bubblegum Crisis is my favorite OAV series of all time (tv series sucked) Now that the appleseed tv series is dead, I have pretty much lost all will to watch anime..... what? They cancelled it?

  8. Post-Cyberpunk Cyberpunk. From the Wiki for Cyberpunk 2020: “The War has also lead to the collapse of nations, the world economy, and many of the staple megacorporations. This civil upheaval has lead to the rise of the "altcults", alternative cultures similar in vein to the "phyles" from Neal Stephenson's The Diamond Age. In fact, Cyberpunk V.3 has more to do with the new postcyberpunk literary movement and transhumanism than with the Gibson-Sterling mirrorshades movement.” So what are we working with here, exactly? In cyberpunk V.2 (CP 2020), the players were one of the various rol
  9. The Reef: Drug humor aside, The Reefs are an interesting bunch. A polygot culture of Seafaring Nomads, pirates, raiders and other rough sorts that adopted Bioenchancements that would allow them to transform their bodies to whatever aquaform was needed (whale, whale-man, shark) and eventually added other templates as needed. Now they are nomadic shapeshifters with many underwater colonies that rule the waves. Will be seen anywhere there is coastline and they have control of pretty much most floating platforms in the PAC-Rim and Atlantic. Given their philosophy of Self-Evolution and the fact
  10. Cyberpunk V3 Alternative Cultures and Ethos (AltCults) This is where Cyberpunk V3 swerves from regular Cyberpunk Ethos into a Post-Cyberpunk setting. The First of the Alt Cult books, Beyond The Edge, is out and gives a much larger treatment on the Edgerunner (classic character types) Alt Cult. Some older CP players have derided this as 'Adding White Wolf factions with Kewl Powerz and destroying cyberpunk as we know it'. Well after reading over CP V3, it's fairly evident that we've got a completely new ethos, and mindset to play with. Simply put, Cyberpunk V3 is a Post-Cyberpunk game with
  11. And Silly me, not adding Spider Jerusulem as the Achetype of the Post-Cyberpunk Reporter.
  12. Soul of the Cyberpunk Hero, Pt 1. Wikipedia offers this rough explanation of the Cyberpunk Genre: “Cyberpunk is a science fiction genre noted for its focus on "high tech and low life." The name is derived from cybernetics and punk and was originally coined by Bruce Bethke as the title of his short story "Cyberpunk," published in 1983, although the style was popularized well before its publication by editor Gardner Dozois. It features advanced science, such as information technology and cybernetics, coupled with a degree of breakdown or radical change in the social order.” While onc

Now the little gas-free ride that could is headed Stateside in a big-time way. Zero Pollution Motors (ZPM) confirmed to PopularMechanics.com on Thursday that it expects to produce the world’s first air-powered car for the United States by late 2009 or early 2010. As the U.S. licensee for Luxembourg-based MDI, which developed the Air Car as a compression-based alternative to the internal combustion engine, ZPM ha
  15. Thank you for the feed back What would your suggestion be for the .50 beowolf round?
  16. These write ups are based off of rifles and calibers found in firearms magazines that I have been perusing recently. rationalizing some of these damages comes from look at the rounds energy transfers, round tumble vs blow through. These Designs aslo incorporate elements from the 'new pistol mods' thread. Comments are welcome. New Calibers 6.8 SPC: A not exactly new Caliber developed in the early 2000’s by U.S. Military to deal with foes that 5.56mm was simply unable to put down, but not come into widespread use until the 2030’s. The original reasoning behind the 5.56 caliber was t
  17. Radio Frequencies Help Burn Salt Water ERIE, Pa. (AP) - An Erie cancer researcher has found a way to burn salt water, a novel invention that is being touted by one chemist as the "most remarkable" water science discovery in a century. John Kanzius happened upon the discovery accidentally when he tried to desalinate seawater with a radio-frequency generator he developed to treat cancer. He discovered that as long as the salt water was exposed to the radio frequencies, it would burn. The discovery has scientists excited by the prospect of using salt water, the most abundant reso
  18. New Rifle Mods Tactical Handguards: This is, quite simply, a covering for the forward part of the assault weapon. Many modern basic guards are a formed plastic with some thermal venting to disperse heat. More complex ones allow spacing and rail systems built into the guard to allow for extra options, coming in a variety of colors depending on the tactical environment one will be going into. Some examples include: Militech Free Float: A evenly spaced TH with screw mounts for left or right side options and a Adjustable rail for iron and scope sights (total: 3): $96 Militech Free F
  19. Just Few Ideas after reading a bunch of gun magazines. Comment as you will New Pistol Mods Iron Sight Lowlight Lenses: A passive system of relatively recent innovation by several manufacturers, it consists of small glass lenses fitted in the iron sights of a pistol designed to capture ambient light and give the user a somewhat limited ability to find targets in the dark. While not allowing for any great detail beyond normal pistol range, it will allow the user to spot rough movement in low light environments. Available in several in several lens colors (green, red, yellow, burnt oran
