Re: Roles/Professions in Coriolis

If I had a character who was a diplomatic courier, would they be considered an Agent?

Would Mediator cover the profession of lawspeaker?

Re: Inspiration: Stories/franchises, Music, Art ...

Lots of good stuff there.  I heard this: <Song of the Siren>  on the radio the other day (I have no idea how I missed it in the 80s) and decided it would be the theme of my Coriolis campaign.  The entirety of Passion from Peter Gabriel is excellent (music from Last Temptation ). Rachid Taha ("Barra...

Re: Inspiration: Stories/franchises, Music, Art ...

Did anybody else here see similarities between Coriolis and Fading Suns? I've thought about trying to retrofit FS onto the Coriolis. But in re-reading FS recently while waiting for more material for Coriolis, I return to assessment when I first got in in 2000-01. I find the setting is too ordered, ...

Re: Roles/Professions in Coriolis

We can't spoil everything for you. Some things have to be discovered on your own. ;) On one hand, I've been wading through the Swedish version of some Coriolis material because (like others) I'm eager to dive into its world. On the other tentacle, I want to enjoy reading it, and struggling with mea...

Re: Inspiration: Stories/franchises, Music, Art ...

Nobody quoted Georges Alec Effinger's trilogy for the atmosphere of Middle-East and cyber? Isn't one of those novels When Gravity Fails ? I spotted that one and recognized the titled from a line in a Dylan tune and read it while hitchhiking across the country... I had forgotten all about it. :) Mus...

Re: Echoes of the Portal Wars...

I for one hope that Free League doesn't buckle and include any connections to past Horizons and our own timeline. Events since the arrival of the Zenith is of course okay, and possibly an outline of the Portal Wars (painted with very broad strokes; hopefully one full of errors and propaganda and co...

Re: Darkmorphs and Constructs oh my!

From the KS comments thread: The humanites, which are bionically modified humans, which you can play – like the Sirb who secrete pheromones to connect better to each other. Scientist of the Institute onCoriolis believ the were "developed" to live in close confinement on distant space stations or col...

Re: Echoes of the Portal Wars...

In the Google+ Group, Nils said The basis of time is measured on the foundation of the station of Coriolis, that is Coriolis Cycles (CC). The current time is 66 CC (66 cycles since the foundation). The First Come use other calendars (a lot older) but the Zenithian is the dominating one.  if that is...

Re: "رماد are you seeing this?"

Ash sees it. But doesn't care. ;) If I may without being the correction police... the term you might be going for is spelled Xenoarchaeologist. [The words sound the same; xenoarchaeology is the study of past alien civilizations; Zeno was a Roman emperor.] Great questions. The sort of questions that ...
