  • Terra Firma

    I’ve read a little more than half the book and I’m really impressed. For those of you who like Easter eggs, Huck Novotny, the Talent gambler from the dimension-hopping adventure in In Media Res, appears again on the casino island of Twelve Mile Limit.

    What do you guys think of Terra Firma?

    I found a few other Easter Eggs, Project 419, for example.

    My favourite is the Nova that become a Sun in his pocket universe...

      Project 419 is a reference to the old Trinity game universe, right?

        It's very, very good. Lots of open ended plot lines, that don't trap the storyteller into a single theme. Lots of stuff that jus showcases how... strange things can be, not just with Aberrants, but with the world in General.

        A bit more on the Chinese Ultimatum and why they stood down was very nice. I like the fact that a lot of the events, even the FSA, grew out, not of anyone's plan, but people just trying to do what they could to survive and assuming that the future would take care of itself.

          I like the strangeness part.

            Exactly, Process 418 was the equivalent of the 2104 Bhurano experiment. It was like the very end of the meta plot of 1e.

              How in-depth is the treatment on China? The PCs in my game are currently there.

                Pretty in depth. Like five or six pages. And a section on the city of Shanghai.

                          There aren’t any so far. I’ve read up to page 100 or so, including the part on Nippon. I’m gonna read more later, so I’ll keep you posted.

                              Didn’t have space, sorry. Maybe in a future book, but failing that I’ll look to publish them on the Storypath Nexus.
