Put your OOC thoughts here.
Yay, thanks for creating this RPG, Nienor!
First of all, I need to resolve the cloaking device issue with Crusader. Does Dailan's cloak have any feature which can repel tachyon beams coming from Adrianna's headgear?
Oh, and I'll get a post up soon, probably tomorrow.
tachyon beams? i thought those were particals traveling faster than the speed of light, how would you say they detect cloaking devices?
anyway the basic summary of his cloaking device is that it works on several levels, the first of which nullifys any outwards projects of the electromagnetic spectrum, meaning he reflects no light, heat, xrays, micorwaves etc etc etc. a second level creats a field of deflection that curves these rays round him so you see past him. A third levl is a wave of harmonic resonance that in effect causes suggestibility in organic minds and disrupts electronic sensors. together they provide the illusion of invisibility. there is a flaw however, if youd read his profile, the effect is not perfect, in most degrees of the electromagnetic spectrum this is neglegable but when it comes to visible light the two field of the device do not function perfectly, the degrees of nullification and diversion are never in sync creating a sort of ripleing in the air when he moves, it may be hard to spot but its the best way to see him. its kinda like the 'predator' but more subtle.
As important as all this stuff is, I think you all should hurry up and crash on the planet so I can join in!
Awwwww, what about the long drawn out space battle?
you can have a post about strange lights in the night and fire falling from the sky if you like.
Thanks for your summary. Your cloak still emits tachyon particles, from what I've gathered. (what does "etc etc etc" refer to? lol ) Tachyon can shoot from Adrianna's headgear and is fast enough to find tachyon emissions and disperse the deflection field created by the cloak, hence nullifying the invisibility effect.
It also has another property- sending messages through tachyon beams/showers at a speed faster than light. That's really useful if ya ask me, it means Adrianna can communicate with whoever she's in alliance with.
If things go well I'll see how tachyon grids fit into this RPG. The USC might decide to use cloaking devices for their ship, and other than lots of firepower I don't see how they can be penetrated if not for tachyon.
and why per-se do you think the cloak would be emitting tachyons anyway. from what i know theyre incredibly rare to find let alone having whole grids of them and whatnot.
I suppose I could... Alright then, I think you should get started on the space battle so I can write about strange lights in the night and fire falling from the sky.
AND you can set up kingdoms/religions and stuff before we get there, you can ready the way for us if you want and start getting some of the medieval world sorted before we even get there.
Oohhh! I have power! (I like this game) Now I just have to think of some cool kingdom/religios stuff...hmm...
now youre in ther, if you think abut it youve got a very good opportunity to be creative here, you can think up a stife or war that we can land into or a religious prophecy for us to fulfill or any mixture you like, the mroe you get ther better for us when we land.
So in other words I'm being given the "all go", aren't I? I can do pretty much whatever I please?
Oh, btw, do we have a character thread yet?
Let's put it this way : Unless cloaking devices are really advanced and have special features to block specific kinds of emittion, they'll be able to be detected by tachyon beams. It's very rare to get it as an item and manipulate it, but less advanced cloaking devices will always emit tachyon which will make it possible for the beams to find them.
O Morgan, I'm really looking forward to what you want to do for this RPG
well there are a few flaws in that theory jnanee, firstly, as tachyons travel faster than light (unless im mistaking it for the wrong thing). Then theyre no way something can emit them, from what i know of tachyons theyre pre-existing things and its unlikly theyre generated by anything less than a supernova or some huge huge huge thing thats very powerful, not a meagre cloaking device. Also, since they wouldnt be emitted they wouldnt be reflected either, particles sent off through supernova explosions can penetrate solid steel, and thats not even at the speed of light, a tachyon would go through anything without hinderance,.
And as i said before Dailan's cloak blocks all emittions from the electromagnetic spectrum, which covers quite a lot of things, id be suprised if tachyons weres one of them.
Sry for not posting owncast eyes:
My sys went totally berserk, so I had to put it down.
So, in short, until I manage to fix the machine, I'll be absent.
This post was made from a friend, so, I might manage to put up something, but it is relative possibility.
yeah ive had a lot of work recently, so i might try and get a post in now while im free.
Alright, I'll leave it at that, because if I were to fully justify myself I'd have to go into an ultra-long post of which some details are hypothetical anyway, and I'll just muddle myself up in my post
Oh, and I've got a post up in the RPG.
The claoking thing doesnt really matter as for the time being Dailan is out to keep Adrianna safe, though grudgingly.
although that might change if she decides to desert her father who might be angry enough to rethink the contract.
oh and i had an idea that my engineer guy adran (Ad for short) would eb the engineer on Adrianna's ship i thats okay.
That's what she's just going to do it can be found in her character profile. Her dad will be angry enough to want to kill her, so how Dailan reacts to the whole thing is entirely up to you.
