    [Exalted] [Alpha Centauri] You'll get not a mote from me, Immaculate!

    Every day of the year, valorous cruisers brave the Sargasso, risking piracy and great tentacled Behemoths to deliver fresh slaves to the worms, sell them their psyches, and return with a hull full of dreamjacks. In and out, the Guild sends them, some sinking, some captured, most returning with...

    Is transhuman space opera the natural world progression of cyberpunk?

    I just finished reading the transhuman space opera series The Golden Age, and my group has been doing a lot of cyberpunk related stuff lately.

    Transhuman Space: Where is it going?

    This quote from another thread about neat quotes in RPGs brings up an issue I want to address... I'm sorry Jurgen, but this vignette sickens me and I think it should be cut from the book (for those of you unfamiliar to it, there is a lot more...).
