Thanks for that. It's a lot of material to brainstorm on! I'll definitely be able to sit down and chew on what the actual reason for The Dissident splitting off. I like the trippy self-reflective visions idea. Could run any number of directions with that. Probably won't go with a straight forward greed/mining example but you illustrate a possibility well. This is good stuff, thanks!

Also, I'd love a talk about religion. I was raised Catholic but consider myself non-religious at this point. Religion is a topic I can't really discuss with most people.

I look forward to seeing what you come up with!

I'll start a thread about religion over in Off-Topic. Here's hoping it goes OK.

Brute force and ignorance can solve any problem. The application of brute force and ignorance may create other new problems, but those problem can also be solved with brute force and ignorance. -An old roomate

And once you establish something as "divine law" you can't exactly take it back. It's absolutely a double-edged sword, but people still try to use it, which is what makes it so interesting.

Not to bring the thread's original purpose back from the dead, but Joshua/Soren - are fossil fuel/combustion engines still widely used? I wrote a bit of mecha fiction back in the day and generally went with helicopter/tank-style gas turbines as the powerplant. I get that the tech level of the setting is pretty flexible - but I wasn't sure if the newer energy sources had totally replaced putting stuff in an engine to make it go bang.

I'm making my own frames now and writing up the fluff for a world setting, so I was curious to see what your view was.

Gas turbines are awesome. Not only are they practical due to their high power:weight ratio, but they also make an amazing noise that would make your frames sound like freight trains.

Frames are built to work in their environment. If an environment makes gas turbines more practical than polymeric deuterium fusion plates, match-paired hypercapacitors, or solar thermocouples, then by all means!

That is the best "machine powering up" sound I have ever heard. Ever.
