  1. There were not any racist accusations, that is a lie. Chaosium is losing a customer due to you.

  5. Depends on how fast, slow enough, and it could get through the shield.
  6. I would use opposed rolls from page 34: use player's combat percentile, and have the opponents roll against it or be suppressed, lose action points. Expend ammo also, has to be a semi- or automatic weapon.
  7. If Robin D Laws isn't doing anything more with the Gaean Reach by Jack Vance, that would be an interesting sci-fi IP to make BRP. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaean_Reach
  8. Great, followed and tweeted to your profile.
  9. I just finished Scalzi's The Collapsing Empire, so I will go see if the library has the "The Writer's Journey", thanks for the suggestion. Hollywood is good at making visuals, it's what they do. I don't have any real complaints about Star Wars, Rogue One was really good so that The Last Jedi seemed rather flat and predictable, which is what it was going to be anyways. The whole toxic rage in fandom makes me recoil.
  10. There are some good CL Moore characters, I will try to do more, many I have done are just archetypes of sci-fi. As far as I know, Northwest Smith is the first instance of the loveable rogue smuggler with a spaceship, so I can't think of any other main influence. know Lucas cited Joseph Campbell's "The Hero With A Thousand Faces" as an influence, and Star Wars is very "monomythic": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hero's_journey He had Leigh Brackett as one of the writers for Empire Strikes Back, and she was a contemporary of Moore, and called "The Queen of Space Opera". Lucas is the one who came up with "midichlorians" so it seems he was trying to scale back on the mysticism some. Then again, the Star Wars universe is all over the place with different ideas from a vast array of writers, so much so that sometimes it's a minefield talking about it places; I love the aesthetic of a dirty, care worn universe that it has.
  11. Ok, I will make more characters, they are fun to make too. Northwest Smith is the inspiration for Han Solo, other than being 30's pulp, I like the stories. CL Moore is very good, her story "Shambleau" is the source of an earlier avatar I had, her stories run the gamut from pulpy 30's style space opera, to thoughtful stories such being about love and addiction the way Shambleau is. Needless to say I like her, though much of her work are masterpieces of early science fiction.
