I pulled the eye out of the mgt1 core page 90:

Enhanced Vision (TL 13): A character can be implanted with
cybernetic eyes giving him the abilities of a set of binoculars and IR/
Light Intensifier goggles at the cost of Cr. 25,000.


Maybe with one eye it would be cheaper (1/2), magnification I wouldn't think would be more than 4x.

I do own that cybernetics book as well. My gut feeling is to try to say yes, though I'm sort of feeling that it might take some more advanced manufacturing facilities for chip sets, maybe lenses. He would need tools like a scanning electron microscope (Cr20,000) for tasks like microscopic welding, and to make his mech roll. Definitely assemble and do it some cheaper.

Zhenya is looking for more.
Such as displacing Joaninha to be Empress? ;)

Displace? Yes. Replace, no. Zhenya believes in the ideal of an alliance of truly independent worlds, not an empire. The opportunities for corruption, and the occasions for repression are too frequent in an Imperial system - Zhenya has first hand experience of both, and from both sides. Strangely those experiences have made Zhenya more of a romantic idealist.

Ah, but now you've put the idea in my mind. Perhaps Zhenya would not be corrupted by power, but could use it to free everyone. Why destroy the One Ring, surely a pure heart could wield it as a force for good.... :lol:

Ah, the Pirate Queen.

As charismatic as Craig might be, he is also an idealist, and what he says should be taken with a grain of salt, he could be entirely wrong.

I think it was Grack that noticed that Humanity was a species where it's principles and actions struggled against each other. It's true that the Imperium does represent a new threat for abuses, it is supposedly founded upon Humanist principles, and the old independent colonies also had their abuses. In seeking to impose order, Earth has brought more chaos.

I don't think Zhenya would ever want a throne. Not the spotlight sort. More is achieved in the shadows than in the open. Advisor to a Corsair King perhaps? :)

Cool, because I don't really have any plans for how she would go about Zhenya assuming the throne; not that I would not make some, because I would, except it is less work for me at this point. 8-)

I'm not against using it (hell, I bought it years ago on DTRPG, and haven't used it that much), I'll give it a read again, Pete Nash is a pretty good author, imo.

BT should also have a doctor checkup, he died not to long ago.

Zhenya is not thinking clearly at the moment, so I'll put this here in OOC:

Leon is our Pilot, he should not be on watch all night before we fly. Calson is Navigator, nor should he. Someone else needs to take over the nights security. BT perhaps? Elton, Dr. Ben?

Zhenya has solved the “Hungry” and “Too sober” problems, everything else is now covered by an SEP field ( Somebody Else's Problem ).

Pinterest suggested I'd like this image. Serendipity at work.
