Re: Retribution, chapter 3, (spoilers)

As SYED mentioned currently I think the plan was for Jason to get Rann and his wife ready and then will abdicate to go tinker with tech, explore the galaxy etc. I'm sure he will still have influence but there are a lot of things Jason wants to do but can't because he has to run the House and play na...

Re: Retribution, chapter 3, (spoilers)

Interesting idea... I had wondered back in the 2nd book? If Cybi might fall for Jason if she ever got a physical body, from one of the comments after Jason had his ganglions repaired. But the scenario you describe would be in a way a form of torture. To be immortal and watch your family die of old ...

Re: Retribution, chapter 3, (spoilers)

So, the Ijara are gone! But there are other intergalactic players out there. If a war between two galaxies that has lasted less than a decade is noticed by these intergalactic players, then a war between two galactic superpowers that has lasted for six millennia must have been noticed as well. Thou...

Re: Retribution, chapter 1, (spoilers)

Could be that the plan is to destroy the system no matter what, with some group planning to swoop in and pick up the Oracles before it happens.

Re: Chapter 26

Yeah...that's not really how that works. Mutually Assured Destruction is contingent on rational actors who will hesitate to press the button unless needed. While the Dragons felt pushed into a corner, a lot of the people who kind of sit on those kind of committees might disagree. The hurricane thing...

Re: Chapter 26

Holy shit, they just effectively knocked out China. Something like that...there's going to be people sitting up all around the world at that little display. For all that it was face saving, the Chinese President was absolutely right, there are going to be people around the world, ESPECIALLY in the U...

Re: Earth Bond chapter 25, [SPOILERS]

One thing I'm kind of scratching my head about was the end, when we learned that he could fly and then asks the elders to craft a device to stop him doing so...that kind of threw me. His reasons is kind of 'if i can't do it, I won't experiment and blow it open' is sound if a bit weird but I still ha...

Re: Retribution, potential ideas

My point about the moral code was telling the Consortium about them, 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...however the consortium showing up to the Dreamer...

Re: Retribution, potential ideas

One thing to think of, though it doesn't really fly with Jason's plan of making the Dreamers think they are going to die, and its definitely against Jason's morals is simply....inform the Consortium of the dreamers existence. IIRC from I think it was Unification, when we first got info on the situat...

Re: Conviction Chapter 14

Well, advanced enough psionics ignores the intervening 3-D space so I would expect armor wouldn't be much help. I'm not sure if internal body manipulation (like causing a stroke or heart attack) is TK or not but I also don't see that it matters. A previous story mentioned that it was. Jason thinks ...

Re: Conviction chapter 13

I wonder how aggressive the Faey military acts in getting their hands on especially strong Faey for them to be successful enough to gather so many of them. Any Faey house should have at least an internal policy of finding those strong ones among the populations of the worlds they control as early a...

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 j...

Re: Conviction chapter 13

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 healthy if the body keeps being healthy no matter the age. Although I can see that watching friends and family dying before your e...

Re: Conviction chapter 13

Well the Faey obsession with 'natural' probably has a lot to do with keeping things like anti-aging drugs or regimes going on...but its a very valid point. As medicine improves, 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...

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. :)
