Re: Good Books (Scifi)

http://morfs.nowhere2go.org The site hasn't been updated in over a year but most of the stories are complete. It did sound like it might make an interesting story, but as far as I can see, there are dozens of stories there and your quoted blurb is a general baseline on which all follow up stories a...

Re: Spoiled - Waaaaaaaaaaaaa!

Royalroad is royalroadl.com I believe. It started out as a fanfic site for Royal Road (a Korean? comic/manga) So it has a lot of game based original fiction now. royalroadl.com started out as a translation of "The Moonlight Sculptor", a korean light novel about a poor korean player playin...

Re: Conviction, Chapter 14.

Preserver race? Might it not be a race of ancient faey who happened to have gotten far enough for space travel and who happened to find themselves in some sort of situation in which their race faced annihilation and they reacted by sending out a few seed ships not only to the local neighborhood but ...

Re: Retribution, potential ideas

...because the Consortium has shown that they will throw their ethics out the window in the name of survival (aka the attack on Karis) and so would like to use the Dreamers themselves... Two additions: First, the Consortium would have gained much more if they had just asked for help. Instead, they ...

Re: Conviction chapter 13

What I find strange is, they find the super ship with that massive hole and a few months later they are putting those kinds of holes in super ships. The first super ships where destroyed a long time ago. It's hard to fathom two species on the same technological path. Could there be a strange versio...

Re: Conviction chapter 13

It might very well have been his principles but even before Jason knew much of the history of the Kahrines he was horrified to find out that there was genetic modification in his thousand year old Faey ancestor...and Myleena was just as horrified. Now to be fair its a bit of a shock but the degree ...

Re: Conviction chapter 13

Its much easier to repair things like limbs, or genetic disorders than the brain itself but you raise a fair point. I was more thinking of things like 'the fog of ages' as people live longer and longer and have to remember lots more stuff...though with things like the Cyberjacks tha's less of an is...

Re: Conviction chapter 13

people begin to live longer and longer and eventually what's going to crap out first is not going to be the body...but the brain. The brain is part of the body and the known afflictions that come with age target the brain as well. I don't think there is a reason why the mind shouldn't stay fit and ...

Re: Conviction chapter 13

I would think the last chapter of the last book would have Jason retiring and letting Rann take over as Grand Duke. Then he could actually relax for a bit. Sipping Oye juice on the beach with Jyslin while the rest of his family and friends surround him, kids splashing away in the water as Jason and...

Re: Conviction chapter 13

There should be a last book, or at least the last chapter of Benediction entitled 'vacation' because after saving earth and then the galaxy and then ANOTHER galaxy...Jason desperately needs to go sit on his beach and relax. :) I'd rather think a title like 'benefits' instead of 'vacation' fits the ...

Re: What do you play? PC or Console & what games do you play?

Who the heck has time to play games? There are so many books out there! So many stories, webnovels, translations! In the rare, rare times in which I don't have anything to read, I'll just use my PC for idle gaming. It's more like an afterthought since I can do so without investing into more than the...

Re: Conviction Chapter 9 [Spoilers]

Some of you guys seems to have a problem with proportions. Like the problem of manning the super ships. Even if it takes upward 70k people to man one, and it will probably be less, once refitted, spacefaring empires would have no problem finding 70k people among billions of residents. the skaa, for...

Re: Conviction Chapter 9 [Spoilers]

I find it highly unlikely that the oriacle is a sentient computer. Only the Karinnes, that we know of, have succeeded in creating sentient computers through biogenics. That computer would also not only be sentient but also have physic abilities. Again, thats something biogenics is capable of but i ...
