What is your rule about magic and magitech? I have a world that I've been working on since I was twelve, and I know what it would be like at a sci fi level. Plus, I love mixing genres. What do ya think?

DM's call...but as a player, I'd rather we stick with the precedents of established sci-fi universes, or at least purely sci-fi.

Why? Afterall, psionics is just magic of the mind. And I'm not talking dnd, this world just uses the excess mana that's pouring from the core. They've created generators, but those have a limit and once drained, takes time to recharge. No gods required.

I would also say that most forms of magics would not really fit a scifi theme.

But I'm not talking about most magic. My case is more a fusion of sci fi and fantasy. They have spaceships, they're just powered by mana. They have guns, missiles, bombs, all that stuff. Its just fueled by a chaotic energy source that comes from the planet's core. Certain races can manipulate it on an individual level, but its limited. And mana is just what they call it because they have no other way to describe it.

I was planning on both - the human with a treecat companion. Since I doubt anyone else will have the capability of communicating with the furry little bugger, I'd only really have to RP one character, plus a bit of 'wacky treecat antics' from time to time.

I've been thinking about it and I'd wondered if you and the GM would be okay with me playing the treecat member of the pair?

To address a few questions I've seen here.  Nyarly, excellent PC, you're good to go.  Kevlan Battleheart, you are also on your way to becoming a full fledged member of the team as well.  Glyph and Hunter, go for it I say.

Now, to address the issue of magic.  This is where things get a little tricky because I know there's symbology, runelogy which is basically the same thing Star Ocean wise, and tons of other magic systems or magic like systems that litter sci fi games and the like, but to me they aren't true sci fi when magic becomes involved.  However, so long as you don't go crazy with it and keep summons and the like out of the equation, I do not see a real issue IF you are detailed about whatever system you implement.  If it borders on the mystical without an explanation to back it up how it works other than to say it does, don't waste my time or the rest of the group please.  Biotics like in Mass Effect can be explained, Star Ocean's symbology was genetic engineering to allow a person to channel mental energy into the form of spells and skills; so long as you're able to explain it, I will most likely accept it.

Lol that was a yes Hunter for the treecat and human combo for the two of you.  The only problem is I still need ambassadors and what have you.  The treecat guy among you may have to take on another PC if at all possible unless we get more.  You can still be a fighter in some capacity if you want, just it won't be your first skill is all lol.

No, no.  Later in the series a form of sign language (called treecat sign) was developed.  Asking if we're going to use it or not.

Basically, American Sign Language adapted for a different number of fingers, letting the 'cats communicate fully with humans trained to read the signing. And yeah, we should definitely be using it, though the odds are small that anyone from other universes can already read ASL, so I'll probably be the only one who can understand the 'cat.

As for a character, I'm thinking a San Martino immigrant - similar to Col. Ramirez, but in the Forestry Service instead of the Marines.

Fine with me.  (I'll mesh out any further details as needed.)



Name: Silver Song (Among her own species only, her human partner has given her another name)
Gender: Female
Age: 86 standard years
Race: "The People" (aka Treecat)
Home Planet: Sphinx
Known universe: Honor Harrington
Appearance: Take a fully grown house cat (roughly 10 kilos), give her a prehensile tail, and two more limbs.   Her fur is gray and shot through with silver streaks.

Position:  Sidekick and general all around nuisance
Tech Level:  As a species, Treecats have shown a stone age technology level.  however, they've been shown to have both intelligence and adaptability to match their human counterparts.
Racial Traits/evolutionary path/customs/traditions etc:
Preferences:  None.  Treecats have no interest in the sexual practices of other species (except perhaps as gossip).
History:  Silver Song is a memory singer from the Gold Leaf Clan.  Being the youngest memory singer in the clan, she was requested to gather additional information on the nature of "The Mind Blind" (aka humans), and return irregularly to share her findings with her clan.  She has been faithful in her duties, living primarily among humans for a number of years.
Note: Treecats are empathic with other species and telepathic within their own.   They're carnivores (and have the claws/teeth to match) but have a weakness for celery.

Working on mine, don't worry - consider Hunter an adjunct of my PC for now, unless he's going to make up a separate PC of his own too.

I'm kinda pushing limits of how many games I want to play right now.   If things settle down a bit more then I may toss another character into the mix.   I figured it'd be fun to have an independent minded treecat.   ;D

*twitches*

I won't ruin the entire story, mainly because most of it is tangential to what we need to decide. The point I was thinking about though was Samantha, being the first memory singer to adopt a human - it's called out as particularly exceptional, so other memory singers in adoptions would draw notice. Maybe the two of us are a recent adoption, even the beginning of a trend for clans to send their surplus memory singers into positions of safety to avoid a repeat of the disaster* in MoH.

*An entire treecat clan is blotted out by what amounts of an artificial meteor strike. Beyond that I can't justify myself spoiling.
