A Chunk of Fantasy 2.04 – Emerus, the flying city [Location]

A Chunk of Fantasy 2.04 – Emerus, the flying city [Location]

“I always liked this part…”
Imperial City-Pilot Commander Shamus, just before Emerus takes off.

Emerus is considered to be the shining jewel in the Imperial Engineer empire. Although not the largest or most fortified settlement – that honour lies with the capital – Emerus is a marvel to behold as it lies overhead. For you see, Emerus is a flying city. Built towards the end of the last mage war, when reports of those that worshipped the Fallen One possessed a flying city of their own, the Imperial Engineers were at first unbelieving, then afraid, then they saw it as a challenge or a goal.

Within a few months, the first proof of concept had been made...

A Chunk of SciFi – 2.03 Retcon Bomb [Weapon]

“If this gets out, the entire universe will want our destruction…”
Snippet of leaked records from “Project:Safecracker”

The system know in official records as BA-R3DS, aka Bardes, is devoid of life. Literally nothing grows there, not even a microscopic bacteria. This complete absence of life, combined with it’s reasonable proximity to 4 major starfaring cultures, including humanity, made it the perfect testing ground for weapons and other risky experiments. Many experiments took place here, from the development of the ill-fated Nano-Phage to the successful attempt at space folding and much more...

A Chunk of Fantasy 2.03 Lava Canoe [Vehicle]

A Chunk of Fantasy 2.03 Lava Canoe [Vehicle]

“Yeah the name is a bit odd, it’s not strictly speaking for use on lava, but you can use it there. No, what this beauty was designed for is in those weird places between the planes, where the cross over with each other. Quasi-something or other. Anyway, this one, meant to be used on the bit where the plane of fire meets the plane of earth. All that heat from the Fire Realm combined with the, well I suppose liquid, makes normal water there evaporate, and there is that lava-like stuff instead. It’s pretty weird experience, using that canoe. Just don’t forget where you are, and by the 12 and 2, don’t get out until you have a safe location …”

A Chunk of SciFi – 2.02 Transhumanist Jam [Food]

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 2.02 Spellstorm [Weather]

A Chunk of Fantasy 2.02 Spellstorm [Weather]

“It was our fault, we should have paid more attention to where we were. We knew being in The Bleed would cause issues for us, but Genki, our mage, told us the walls of reality are weaker here and the closer we get to the Great Barrier the better. It started so peacefully. Then the air went still. It was scary. We could all begin to feel the hair on our body stand up. Then we saw it moving over the horizon in our direction. We should have left then, but when it got close enough to see it was not a normal storm it was too late. It was homing in on it only Genki, but Marigold as well. It was beeing drawn towards our sources of magic. It was accelerating, we had to move, but then the first bolt erupted from the cloud…”

The Spellstorm, also called a ...
