I just saw an open thread, but the OP specified it needed an application. Thus, I'm a bit scared of popping into an "open" role-play and making a mess of things. What I highly, highly recommend is to post in the out of character thread if it has one (if you're not sure, link me to the RP ...

Which is to say, I read it all in one sitting last night.

My main nation uses mostly custom technology; some of it I will buy from non-domestic manufacturers. I also use only custom technology for the different PMC groups based out of Tarn (and soon, Pezlevko); I like to feature other people's stuff, so I will usually shop around different storefronts when...

Coming back to Blade Runner 2049 really quickly, I really liked the movie. In retrospect, I like it more. At the time, it was very long and, like the original movie, the story is slow to build/develop, and so you're sitting there wondering when this is going to get kickstarted. The plot definitely m...

No but certain cyberpunk elements can be fun. It adds a little bit of spice to the PMT level. While I would admit that I prefer the more optimistic Post-Cyberpunk outlook to the wrist slittingly cynical traditional cyberpunk, I find it more interesting to depict advancing technology as causing sign...

Speaking of the post-apocalyptic genre, I have yet to encounter a single example of a post-catastrophe dystopia story told from the perspective of its ruling class that reveals what goes on behind the scenes. Instead, most dystopian fiction (especially the sort that is set in an environment that ar...

Have you guys seen Blade Runner 2049, yet?

I saw it yesterday. As a cyberpunk film it fits the broad genre of this thread and I'm curious what you guys thought of it.

The former, though I’d also wonder if it’s a product of feudalism? Aritocracies developed very early, and they may have very well developed before there was any concept of monarchy. You see evidence of aristocrats in relatively primitive early Bronze Age civilizations that there are archeological r...

How long would it take for nobility to develop under a fairly young monarchy? Welskerland is a monarchy, but as an institution, it only goes back to the 17th Century at it's earliest, while many IRL monarchies existed for many centuries and most before the 1600s. Do you mean how long it takes for a...

Speaking of guiding OPs, and this is tangential, weak OPs can also present a problem if they're being guided by the wrong player. It's easy to manipulate a weak OP, meaning the [bad] player gets the outcome he/she wants by influencing the OP in a way that goes against the OP's best interests. What a...

I'd agree that that's generally the way to go - for MT RPing too. Out of curiosity though, to what extent do you find this means either (a) the rough outline of the plot has to be worked out in advance (limiting creative freedom OOCly) or (b) a powerful enough nation dedicated to mostly maintaining...

I don't think there is a "we" that has a say on what's PMT and what isn't, and I don't think it'd be a productive conversation anyways. Tech is an identity, you opt-in depending on how you see your canon fitting. I definitely consider myself PMT, despite having a NS pop nation. The questio...
