Ubiq / Re: Blight vs Black Death
« Last post by Dadalos on Today at 02:31:05 AM »
double check mark on the Black plague being 'bad' but if my number crunching and everything works out ... the blight is by far the worst of the two strictly by the numbers. on another forum here on lifelines (if it hasent been purged in one of the clean-out sweeps) me and a few others hashed together some of the details of the blight... and it would seem that this go around is worse then the black death and the Spanish flu combined. the shear lethality / longevity / tenacity of the blight simply put everything before it into utter laughability. dose that make the others suck any less? hell no. but as far as I can see the blight is here to stay and aside from the immune / latent (or the ever optional choice of 'shot') there are no foreseeable cures.

With most modern antibiotics the Black plague wouldent have been an issue. but the general ignorance of the time caused some very very poor decisions to occur and kill more people then the damn disease would have naturally.

if im remembering correctly aberents are 'boogieman' they don't officially exist and its generally agreed that its all wild speculation at best. in my games at least thats how they are treated. someone is panicked and exaggerates a story about a vector that took out their whole crew. ect ect. and I play into the whole they arnt real factor. and the people who 'know' are dhqs or delta-green esq crews.

as for the DJ its mostly about things like who are they , where are they, how are they still alive, why do they operate a radio now, what factions do they support, is it all propaganda from the recession, ect ect ect. for instance on one run my takers got pinged by someone claiming to be a proxies for the dj. said they needed help getting fresh supplies to the broadcast studio and that they actually were off the air until they could get some tech work done. and that the things playing currently were backlogged recordings that would run out in a few days

range id imagine to be fairly simple as its a matter of force / diameter of the aperture the propellant travels through... then again im speaking with limited mechanical know how on the particular subject in this case.  that being said. changing the fuel type might be more tricky as other things will burn im not sure if it would work as intended, I mean they use what they use now for a reason.

Reasons to like the DHQS.

Made suppresin by killing thousands. Potentially saved millions.

Reasons to dislike the Church in 1300s.

Killed all the cats, let rats spread fleas. Killed millions. Spread disease even further.

DHQS and alternatives still disliked more.

History. Balancing the truth.
