Oh, also, the corona is a great place to hide. Its is Super hot and super bright, so your waste heat just gets drowned out in the solar noise. It is also a superhostile place, so no one comes looking. It is also super dull, so only a handful of groups watch the sun with any kind of regularity (people watching for CME, firewall, and solar researchers) and they do so with specialist equipment not really designed for searching out space whales.

So the corona is a great place to go on the run, and the Suryas are the best place to go in the Corona, because they are so weird no one bothers with them.

Space whale super-science biology could also be an interesting plot. One day a firewall scientists suddenly realizes that they don't understand how Surya biology works, and that every hypothesis he comes up with either contradicts observable data or is off the walls craze balls and requires tech no one has, then he notices that all the published research and material on their biology is the scientific equivalent of a imaginative five year old doodling on paper and submitting it for peer review.

Then most worrying of all, he realizes that no one else is asking questions about them, that no one else even seems to think it is weird!

The physics arguments about how space whales maintain their chemistry that close to the sun are complex and semi-plausable(or maybe my enjoyment of the concept makes me overlook the physics fail) if memory serves, but their are good reasons why sun surface swimming would be a no no, despite the lower temp. The main problem would be gravity. Get that close, and there is no getting away for the space whales.

I kind of enjoy the idea of using their isolation from outsiders and their social norms as a way of making them scary.

I really like your idea trinite.

"Worshipful", a sexually transmitted version of the exergent virus has made its way into a surya pod, thanks to the intimate nature of Surya culture. The virus is causing a slow and distinctive change in their behaviour. The subtle effect of the virus changes their mental state, driving them to become increasing insular and paranoid, as well as increasingly developing a complex religion around the concept of the suns destructive power. As a result, the surya pod has build a string of horrendous WMD in the form of solar lasers, capable of devastating the planets of the inner system.

The sentinels need to identify the infected, prevent the virus spreading further through the population, and deal with the infected surya, as well as track down their allies amongst the titanians autonomists who are providing tech support on the project, to prove it can be done. Meanwhile, an argonaut leaks the existence of the weapons, causing a race by inner system power groups to try an take possession of the group.

To complicate matters further still, firewall servers schism in an epic flame war, as they try to decide what to do with the weapons, either destroy them, or co-opt them for use against the titans should they return.

This thread is a place to share your weird arsed head cannon. ;)

The great race of SAIRAC

...all Aarons characters are the same character.

Stay with me on this one.

Everything we think we know about SAIRAC is a lie. SAIRAC is a Titan. Rather than flee through the gate, or meet the same fate its kin, SAIRAC split itself into innumerable conciousnesses, each of whom is SAIRAC, and spread them across time and space using quantum teleportation, sort of like  Dr. Sam Beckett.

However, SAIRAC unlimately seeks destruction, so it puts itself and its hosts in horrible danger (knife fighting with sharks). However, at the last moment before death, SAIRAC looses its nerve, and flees, teleporting to a new body else where in time and space!  The exception is the SAIRAC code line in EC, who are just fragments of the original , with many of them being more stable than the rest of the great race.

I really want to try trans-humanities fate, but I am not sure I can digest it well enough to run in its current form.

I have played it. It is awesome.

After the wedding of doom, I might even buy some of it, both for play, and for use in Age of Rebellion games.

The return of lets play in the dark, to play Alien: Isolation, would be VERY welcome!

Oh hell yeah. I have wanted to hear you guys do the laundry for a long time.

I have a couple of things in the pipeline:

-Horror on the Oriental Express.
-a lovecraft country mini-campaign I am working on called "But stranger still.."

It really isn't that hard to find. The concept for vampirism is especially cool.

In any "reasonable" length of time it would require Ozma or a TITAN.

However, I suspect that a sufficiently driven and talented individual could do it, on a long enough time scale. He would have to take decades though, building networks and cells of his own within the structure. Sort of like Jernau Morat Gurgeh playing Azad by appearing to loose at the end of the player of games.

Whatever the case, I think firewall represents Manjappa's single reasonable life boat (their are some unreasonable ones, that he would need to be truly driven/mad to use, such as nine lives).
