Discuss: Tales from the TCPD: Armor

And a nice, calm, well written bit of Lore to curl up with after all the excitement. For the record, we try to alternate.

So... I take it Roth is about to get some concrete boots? =P

When people ask me about my religion, I tell 'em I'd worship Cthulhu.

How bad could I possibly be? Let's see...

You'd think they'd know better than to ask aloud, "What's the worst that could happen?" ^_^

Might be better if someone Castilucci apparently respects did the questioning...

Nice bit of lore. I got a real Appleseed (an all time favorite of mine) vibe from it.

I gotta wonder how widespread DoNTOF (Do Not Tick Off Felix) is as a code in the TCPD.

Finally ... a "giant robot" pilot who isn't an ace natural the first time they get into the cockpit.

That's an anime/manga

That's an anime/manga stereotype. I don't think it's one for the comic book/superhero genre. But then I wouldn't know.

Redlynne's comment might be slightly "manga-centric" but there's still about a 95% chance that the main hero character in any generic western sci-fi or comic book type story is going to turn out to be "The Chosen One" who can do everything and save everyone. The Japanese may have their giant robot pilots be we have Neo, Luke Skywalker, Leeloo, Flash Gordon, Superman and so on. ;)

We can't very well have the hero of the moment be perfect. If they were that then what would become of the "Eye of the Tiger" training montage?

I find myself wondering if

I find myself wondering if Kathleen Aurelia might become an "important" (as opposed to iconic) NPC on the Law vs Lawbreaking alignment axis. Essentially, someone who can support PCs who are on the "side" of the Law, and who is an enemy to PCs who are against the Law.

Conundrum of Furballs ... care to comment on this possibility? Should we be looking to this person with an eye for Content Potential in the game we actually PLAY, as opposed to just in the Lore?

Many of the characters portrayed in the Tales of the TCPD and Tales from the Underworld update series will be present in the game itself. I will not say which, or how many, but the stories don't end just because the game is launched...

I just have to say that I get the giddy tinglies from the tech updates just like everyone else--because I want this game in my hands so badly--but these lore updates are what let me know that this game will be truly awesome.

I mean, the tech is the flesh and bones, but the lore is the heart and soul.
