Re: Hexmage RPG Discussion Thread [Finally updated!]

Sweet! I adjusted my attributes.
Can you give an example of what you're expecting for starting items? One or two handed? Cool down and activation times? Weight considerations? Max range? Any mechanism to interrupt another's action? Skill/spell/weapon chaining?

The individual would perhaps be lost, but with this meshed mind, maybe they'd still think of utilitarian ways to harness/exploit rather than eradicate even pests.

Re: What if there was an Alien Invasion?

In this thread, there are strong suggestions that a species will almost always know violence, because in no reality would there be a scarcity of resources to precipitate conflict, and so any spacefaring race that we encounter would more than likely be capable of combat. And a completely cooperative ...

Going at this from the other side, imagine we were the interstellar culture and we send such a test drone into an inhabited system. How should we react if it gets shot down immediately?

Hmm, how likely would that be? I think it would require either no scarcity, a single entity or no self-preservation –implying a method of evolution unlike we know.

What if there was an Alien Invasion?

Inspired by NikkThePixel's "What if there was a Zombie Apocalypse?"

If extraterrestrial beings came upon our planet, intentions ambiguous, still parked in space... how should the powers handle it? How should the media handle it? How should the people react? What do we do!
