Chemotherapy + Infection should be a way to make Aberants. 

I want to run a game that involves the takers going through a hospitals chemo ward.

I'm properly terrified. Please record that and post to the community APs so the rest of us can listen too.

For me: willa wonka set in eclipse phase using a dirty world as the system

Dr. Nova's Going Away Party?

Because once you have all these trucks you can start to make some really big scores.

Oh yeah, having a truck really affected how we played and what we did as a group.

I'd like a 10k word short story. You're already familiar with the material and you can get it done in a few days after the fact.

::hysterical laughter::

Wow, man, assuming someone can churn out a publishable quality short story in a couple days seriously underestimates the amount of work involved in writing. Especially since 10k is, according to wiki, a novellette, not a short story.

For anyone one who can plot, write, and edit 10k in a few days, my hat is off to you, that is some serious productivity.

Probably also isolated enough that folks wouldn't necessarily be surrounded by Vectors when the Crash happens and would have time to get to an isolated compound or pack up their car and start moving.

For the science/astronomy nerds on these forums, a topographically accurate lunar globe

Because that's not creepy at all...

I was wondering if there's a Walking Dead clause in Red Markets? That is, no-one knows what a zombie is, zombie fiction didn't exist prior to the coming of the Blight, that sort of thing.

Zombie fiction existed prior to the Crash in the Red Markets universe - it got as many people killed, expecting slow moving zombies not vectors, as it enabled people to survive, knowing to shoot for the head.

So imagine a classroom of five year olds running at full speed in a close knit wolfpack after some unlucky taker.  Now imagine the Taker shimmies up a 40 foot wall because he can grasp the handholds.

Now imagine the classroom of moaning and sobbing infected kids looking up at him drooling, and then starting to instinctively form a human ladder with child after child doing insane olympic level acrobatics to jump onto one other's shoulders so that some of their numbers can climb the wall and bring the precious precious brains down to them.

I'm suggesting a variant of zombie that infects a group of children turning them into a super acrobatic and agile psudo hivemind.

Well that's terrifying. I salute your sick and twisted mind, Twisting H

Boar spears or naginatas. You really want the naginata since, not only can you stab with it, but you can also slice. And it has the cross guard

Grace of Kings is so good that I can't imagine it not getting an adaptation to film or TV... hopefully a not-race-bent adaptation.

Unfortunately I'm not on GoodReads as of yet.

I hope so!
