I've considered a couple of times running a 'shadowrun' game set a ways further forward during the 6th World's Scourge using a lot of the imagery from the Final Fantasy movie as inspiration.  I kind of envisioned the world being pretty trashed with the most of the survivors jammed into orbital habitats (where the horrors can't reach due to being outside the gaiasphere) and cities shielded by large techno-magical barriers (looking kinda like the shielded cities in the FF movie). 

Specialized military units and mercenaries (read shadowrunners) would make forays into the surrounding areas in a constant fight to keep the horrors and their twisted creations off balance and away from the cities or simply i the pursuit of resources or abandoned 'treasures'.

Hmmm... this reminds me of the series, Blue Gender.

Sounds a little like Final Fantasy spirits within movie :) Sorties out into the barrens to nuke horror type creatures.

It's a combination, a lot more of that Final Fantasy movie, but a little bit also of Blue Gender also, especially if there's lots of bugs too in the ruined cities and people being crammed up in space. :-)

Some of us just get irked not because it violates canon but the whole point of calling them Horrors.

So you're upset because they're called "Horrors?" Because it violates ED canon maybe? Otherwise, isn't "horrors" just a name?

No. I just think Horrors should invoke fear in all humanity and demand more creativity than "we'll be safe in space". That's why they should be called Horrors, because they deserve the name; otherwise they're just "monsters". My opinion is: every time someone wakes up sweating with a pounding heart, a Horror is born.

Besides, I'm not "upset". Irked is like seven level below upset on the anal meter.

Do you suppose there would be any interest in setting up a 'Seventh/Eighth World' thread in which people discuss what they imagine such a world/game to be like?

Personally I see space opera, where matrix+magic merge into something called 'will', horrors are now (semi-)tame beasts, and immortals (dragons, elves, humans, dwarves, orks, trolls, obsidimen etc all bred into one race) vie to establish their own 'final form' for the universe, failing to notice that all that high-powered competition is actually tearing the universe up and bringing about its early demise.

I like the idea that horrors (beings of hyperspace) are in these days trapped / tapped like slaves / batteries, and that a small group of rebels (read: players) work to free them, horrible as they are, because they are the only balance against the universe collapsing into oblivion.

god am I fucked up or something?

It would probably only be the rich folks that could flee to space. It ain't exactly cheap to run an orbital habitat.

All the immortals have plans to bring a large number of people threw the scourge alive. Not necessarily all but enough that meta-humanity (or maybe just elves) will still exist afterwards.

Between pain editors (making you immune to those horrors that use physical pain) and heavy weapons meta-humanity has a chance to win this time.

Hell we can retreat into our oricalcom plated arcologys and send out remotely controlled drones. To collect raw materials for our resupply, any horror that materialises to interfere eats high grade energy weapons (or good old fashioned powder and lead, ok iron)

Edward, there is a rather long thread on this very same topic already done up. Perhaps you'd like to read through it and post there before creating a second? Then, once you've settled on your opinion as to whether humanity can beat(t) the horrors, ponder then whether humanity can beat the drop bears.

We also have several other advantages. A collaborative spirit, communication framework, science, and industrial practices. Those keys will give humanity a HUGE advantage. The scourge is going to last 3000 years right? I believe (probably because I have too much faith in the persaverance of humans) that they would find solutions that would work for different categories of horrors, and approach it scientifically like they do with diseases. All of the arcologies/kaers would be in constant communication. We are to methodical to not defeat them. And this time we know they are coming.

Please, not again!

Can we beat the Horrors? - that's the thread you (Edward and Platinum) are looking for. I have to agree with Kage, the heretic. This time.

Actually, if you're going to search for it, I believe the title is 'Can we beatt the horrors'. Just search all thread titles for 'beatt' and you'll be good (or evil, as the case may be).

Next time, link to the thread so I can get some reference. And there is no way that I can/will wait until December. My account might have dated back to 02, but I was not here when beat(t) took place.

actually ... it isn't I just didn't know that I was supposed to search. There are close to 500 entries for the word horror. I didn't realize that beat(t) was a keyword until I was instructed to search for it later. I just came back to the game, and I am not privy to all of the insider info like you l33t b0yz
