Re: Conviction chapter 13

One thing I really don't get in this chapter is how there isn't a doctor waiting for the rescue party to get back. Okay, they didn't know how horrific Aria's condition would be but there was still the possibility of injury to deal with. Especially as they had a doc on the station earlier to check wh...

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.

Re: Conviction Chapter 14

I'm wondering how do you go from dreams like a dragon eating a giant that's about to stomp a village to numerical percentage chance of success.

Re: Conviction Chapter 14

I am surprised that Aria would have any modesty. Given how she was treated (i.e. the Benga simply didn't care about her - or even think of her - as a person at all) I would think modesty would get in the way of what little personal care they would have given her.

Re: Conviction chapter 13

I have an idea for how to do the super-ship damage, have a worm hoe, star gate, whatever, only it doesn't need a frame the way Faey equipment does. The weapon form creates a gate that is larger than whatever creates it, then just send the thing straight through the super-ship. Nice neat edges, no da...

Re: Conviction chapter 13

I am surprised that the systems around the oracle child weren't fail-deadly. Cutting power and control should be enough to tell the kill devices to activate.

Re: Conviction Chapter 11 {Spoilers}

E=MC^2 matters here, folks. If you assume you have one "unit" of matter, that one "unit" of energy is equal to 300,000 SQUARED. A single atom of matter holds within it absolutely immense amounts of energy. Now to be fair, not ALL of that energy is released when an atom undergoes...

Re: Conviction Chapter 11 {Spoilers}

Even at its best ripping apart the atoms that make up molecules wouldn't produce much of a bang (that's normal chemical explosives territory - TNT and the like). It would take ripping sub-atomic particles to produce a nuclear-level bang. And even then it would need to be elements heavier than iron (...

Re: Conviction Chapter 11 {Spoilers}

And after the last idea I had an even better one. Have the Kimdori take over the identity of someone high up the corporate chain but not at the top. Next, Have them kill whoever is above them, and again take over that identity, but this time leave a body that will pass as the former lower ranked ind...

Conviction Chapter 11 {Spoilers}

I realized after reading this chapter that the Kimdori are going to have a very difficult time managing the spread of Generations DNA in the Imperium. It's going to take tens or hundreds of thousands of years but eventually the trait is going to be pretty much ubiquitous in the Faey.

Re: Conviction Chapter 10 {Spoilers}

I am surprised the Kindori were able (and willing - perhaps even eager) to fix Jason's susceptibility to damage from a merge but not the cancer risk. Actually, given how the Generations virus works I am also surprised that Kereth was able to fix the merge issue without laying Jason out for a few days.

Re: Conviction Chapter 10 {Spoilers}

It occurs to me that Jason is going to have a difficult time explaining Dahnai's sudden disappearance. Especially given how she was the gavel holder prior to the virus. I suppose the Faey near-reverence towards doctors will help some, but I expect the Siann to go nuts with her being completely out o...

Re: Conviction Chapter 10 {Spoilers}

Well, the fecal matter has certainly hit the rotary impeller this chapter. And here I was thinking things were going pretty well at the end of the last chapter. And then out of nowhere, a potential massive security breach as well as hints of a supervirus. What is everybody's thoughts on the bombshe...

Re: Conviction Chapter 9 [Spoilers]

I'm fairly sure it was pointed out in Subjugation that yes, the reason none of the Faey descendants had talent until the Faey turned up was because there was nobody there to jolt them awake as opposed to the Imperium where everybody is telepathically communicating and there's a lot of drive to expr...

Re: Conviction Chapter 9 [Spoilers]

I get the sense that the ability has to be there but it also has to be trained, and that there may well be lots of folks with untrained ability. For example Shya trying to unlock telekenetic potential. Actually, that brings up something else I have been thinking about, okay the Faey come (back?) to ...
