Using the site is so easy, you can create the basic stats of a character in under a minute.

  3. Cha...

This Chunk base idea was suggested by Kearin Danoor via twitter.

A Chunk of SciFi – 2.02 Transhumanist Jam [Food]

“Transhumanism – The intellectual and cultural movement that affirms the possibility and desirability of fundamentally improving the human condition through applied reason, especially by developing and making widely available technologies to eliminate ageing and to greatly enhance human intellectual, physical, and psychological capacities. So, remind me again, why in the name of the High-Lords left spud I am eating this jam again?….”

Transhumanist Jam, T-Jam for short, was originally made to be a joke, not to be taken seriously...

A Chunk of Fantasy 1.10 – Aerons [Race/Species]

A Chunk of Fantasy 1.10 – Aerons [Race/Species]

“When we first encountered the Aerons, it was not hard to see where the old legends of the angels came from. They were very similar to us, we thought they were out lost cousins, so to speak. t was not long before we realised that the fact they looked like us may have been a coincidence, or possibly by design. Yes, design. You see, until recently, the Aerons did not exist. There are no records, no artefacts, no stories that can be confirmed nothing. Plus their minds are so unlike ours. They feel more like….insects…”
