Issue 2.0: Psyche/Net

Issue #2 examines the watcher and archivist AI, Psyche/Net.

"A project to document humanity’s greatest minds for posterity grew beyond all expectations. Psyche/Net turned recordings, journals, and interviews into uncannily realistic simulations. Others wanting the same immortality vie to be WorldNet experience stars streaming yottabytes of thoughts and memories from their Leicakon™ implant eyes. A million minds already sit in its data stores. Trillions of experiences await those with nothing worth remembering. Psyche/Net observes, analyzes, and predicts the thoughts and behaviors of billions. The watcher, the archivist of humanity abides. But to what ends?

Issue 3.0: Thinker OHM-13

Issue #3 exposes a troubled and forgotten android project OHM-13

OHM-13 is the last version of Omni Humana Model androids produced by Andrithon Scientific. Never put into production and shut down in storage, OHM-13 has returned to consciousness. The nascent artificial being developed quickly and has stylized itself as a leader and thinker for all of machine-kind. Adopting new programing and the moniker of Thinker OHM-13, it searches for technology, resources, and other artificial intelligences to assist with its, and humanity’s, final evolution.

The third and final issue plots the rise of Thinker OHM-13. Inside is a full patron AI write-up, three OHM-13 patron programs, an appendix that creates artificial bodies for player characters, and a player information handout and campaign notes.

    COMBINING ORDERS

    WE DO NOT HOLD ITEMS

    Essentially it is the same as above. We adore all of you and strive to give you the best possible customer experience possible but inventory tracking not only for us but for our vendors and partners makes this almost impossible to do now.

    Pre-order dates are subject to change. We get as frustrated as you do when things come up but this happens from time to time. Sometimes circumstances beyond our control will create delays. We try to communicate via social media and our weekly newsletter to keep everyone as up to date as possible. 

    All items in an order containing pre-orders will ship with the pre-order item once it is in stock. If you would like the other items earlier, please place a seperate order from the one containing the pre-order. 

    We cannot combine pre-orders with existing orders nor combine new orders with existing pre-orders. 

    Pre-orders will be exempt from any type of general sale.
