Quote from: Ron EdwardsI mean, we're talking about Orbit, right?
Quote from: Ron EdwardsAsk away, Kirt. I'm enjoying the thread; my interjection isn't much more than an excuse to say "inter-fuck" and get away with it.

Quote from: JSDiamondMy take was that it would be used mostly for planet-hopping and system hopping within the expanse of the starmap as shown on page 37 (travel time as per the time-length indicated for each engine) --because if anyone wanted to role-play a journey that required cold-sleeping for years they could just make it up. You know, like if the Game Ref says your engines are super fast, but this planet is so far beyond the Fringe that it just takes longer.
QuoteDude, I gotta' write an expansion for that!
Quote from: Ron EdwardsThey can interbreed because (a) it lends more substance to the much more fundamental point that they can inter-fuck, and (b) it provides for even funnier-looking characters.
QuoteAny comments on the whole "crowded galaxy" thing I was talking about above?
Quote from: JSDiamondThe First Hive Wars (a failed coup really) included just one hive (or nest) on one planet --not the whole arach civilization. With regard the that planet's other hives the respective queens knew of the power these hybrids held, so although they (the abbormog) were outnumbered they were offered banishment as an alternative because the queens feared the losses that would be suffered if they simply gave the chemical-pherome order to "kill the re-born". The abbormog meanwhile accepted the banishment because they knew war was futile.
