Re: Fan Websites

I've got some stuff that is almost ready. My writeup of Paradise and Yathrib, which is strictly fan stuff and non-canon, for instance. I'll post it soonish, but it needs a bit more work first. I also have a writeup on Imperial elections for people to disagree with, and maybe some other stuff. :) Di...

Re: Tens of thousands of tiny golems, so yes, very heretical

Second Republic programmable tattoos. If left unprogrammed, they become a billboard for the company that designed them. To make it even more fun, make the tattoos part of a wireless think machine setup, like glimmer cards.

Re: Empress of the Known Worlds

The idea of Alexius Hawkwood marrying Salandra Decados is VERY unusual, given that Hawkwood and Decados nobles are traditionally from rival houses. Sure, and it was unthinkable for Yorkist to marry a Lancaster until it happened, and ended the War of the Roses. Dynastic marriage is about power and p...

Re: Burnin Down the House

I doubt the family would be liable, even if the noble in the party signed a lease that promises their assets. Only the noble who is assigned to the fief can do that, and usually they can only assign the profits from the fief - the land itself belongs to the Prince, or the Empire. The family could di...

Re: Burnin Down the House

Depends on the rental agreement. Did they put down a deposit? Did they sign or swear to return the property in substantially the same condition, free of animal dung or waste? Under Roman law, the tenant was responsible for damages, but the landowner was liable for damages to tenant belongings in the...

Re: jumpgate map question

There are a number of known night roads that the coordinates are lost for, scattered through the canon material. Holy Terra-Tethys, Aylon-Cadavus, and Sutek-Khayyam are the ones that I remember off the top of my head. There are probably more. These are routes that were used historically and have sin...

Re: Strange Cargo

Immunity to local taxation for crossing borders is one of the big perks for Questing Knights. Local nobles tax the roads, weapons, vehicles, you name it. For a questing noble, this becomes a financial drain, as those little tax charges pile up. So the Emperor makes his questing knights exempt. I've ...

Re: Strange Cargo

The Imperial economy is warped. There is just such a bewildering array of taxation, church law, noble law, imperial law, and guild privilege. This is why the Scravers do so well. Smuggling to evade taxation is a high risk, low profit endeavor (see USA prosecutions for the people who buy untaxed ciga...

Re: Fan Websites

I have an entire binder of NPCs. Sadly, they are from the last edition. I have just been faking it, mostly. An awful lot of my NPCs have personality notes, a goal number for their specialty, and a goal number for their fighting. I haven't been bothering with full skill lists, lately. I just note whi...
