Another useful article on the nitty-gritty of your RP setting: The effects of monsters on terrain
Oh man.  I really hadn't considered any of that...  What sort of terrain do hydras like?  Swamps?  Like Louisiana's bayou?  HMMMMM.

Transistors, microchips, Unix, C, digital photography...

Basically the entire modern world can be traced back to Bell Labs.
And that happened because of a competition/innovation stifling national monopoly?  I've heard taller tails.

... introducing a new heroine.
Michele Rodriguez can play a character who is awesome and who lives?

The same company that bitterly fought the answering machine.  No thank you.  That was a very poor trade for giving them a monopoly.

Sorry for the deviation from the usual celebs, but I needed to vent this somewhere.
I think this is a good spot to remember the passing of folks who are personally important.  I'm sorry to hear of your loss.   Sad

Sarcasm, Militia Jim?
If not, what's your thinking?
Devil's advocate.  We have Comcast, TWC, Charter and Cox communications leading the way for ISPs.  I'm not sure we were getting much innovation to begin with.
Indeed.
Remember all the innovation AT&T put into telephony between 1930 and 1980?  I'm generally on board with the idea of ISPs being common carriers, but I don't trust the politicians pushing hardest for Net Neutrality to run a hot dog cart, nevermind craft legislation that will preserve the best parts of the current internet while allowing innovation going forward.

34 States could be disqualified from ACA Tax Credits... FCC is set to make Internet a Title 2 Utility.  Power/Rangers went Rated R.  And it's only Wednesday!
The Feds may follow the law as written and indended...  There goes innovation.  My daughter sounds like she may actually be a pterodactyl.  Where is the weekend?

What happened in it?

Goats and sheep are next, sharing a stat block.  Man are they stupid.  Sheep are the stupidest animal in the game with a rule breakingly low Intelligence of ZERO.  I suspect that is a typo as there is a minimum of one for any stat.  As with most of these animals, they are not fighters.
That is not a typo, sheep are that stupid.

i just dont feel like taking a war game and tacking on magic would do the modern fantasy genre justice. if anything look at la noire or mafia for gameplay inspiration. the problem i have with using xcom and bioshock is they are both apocalyptic settings. i feel like something like a mafia setting featuring a dispute between factions say seelie and unseelie fae courts ala lost girl could work.
The Secret World works because players are working with the assumption that there is a masquerade they need to keep up.  If you want something "modern with magic," you really need to decide what you want for that and work backwards.  Shadowrun would be a Very different setting if the magic came back in 1900 and not 2050.  

See what I mean?  (One of my pet peeves is "classical" fantasy elves.  You guys have mastered magic and haven't gotten at least to post scarcity?  Morons.)

You are going to need to go recoil-less in space, but that guy is toast as soon as he is noticed.

Making the F-35 and F-22 single seat aircraft was such a bad decision that everyone involved in approving it should be hanged.

The day after the Air Force boneyards the A-10s, the Key West accord will be disappeared, that section of the boneyard will be empty, and three weeks later some hella stoked warrant officers are going to be testing out the Army's latest hotness.

The mandarins currently running China know they cannot afford to start a hot war with any country that can muster the most half-assed sorry mining of a foreign harbor.  China is already running out of ability to compete on price for simple experts, and they don't yet do good enough design work to compete on quality.  Throw in a month of shipping stopped to de-mine a harbor, and their government is hosed.

Edit: to clarify this setting being in and around the ruins of the vast and mostly empty hive which itself is part city, part dungeon.
Or maybe it's stupid. I'd admit the latter, but goddamnit that was a lot of typing.Tongue
Dooooood.  That's not stupid, it's AWESOME.  It might even allow a multi species party...

Because NATO isn't a real thing now?
Because the "EU army" is non-existent.

I am shocked, shocked, to "discover" this.
