Yes, after many years I’m working on an idea for Necropolis 2350. No, it isn’t the 2356 book. It’s a 32 page comic book size look at the Templars – more details, new player stuff. In fact it’s designed so a Templar player has everything he needs to be an ideal Knight inside the booklet.
IF, and we are well aware it is a big IF, it sells, we might look at not only finishing each Ordo with their own books, but also the Corporations.
Well, like I said, early days and on the Templars. Some material will be repeated, as I want Templar players to have everything they need at their fingertips. So Edges most suited to them get cut and pasted in among new Edges, for instance.
One thing I know will be in there is the ADVARC (ADvanced Vehicular Activity and Repair Center). Kind of “Top Gun” for Templars (drivers, pilots, gunners, and mechanics), and better known as the Aardvark by Knights.
Writing for Necropolis again has rekindled my old cynicism!
The Museum of armored Warfare
The Museum is detailed in Chapter Two. Among the attractions, and especially popular with impressionable younger visitors, are virtual reality “battle-pods.”
These allow visitors to experience the “thrill” of commanding a tank in combat. While the Ordo claims it presents a realistic experience, the simulators are little more than an elaborate computer game, the odds heavily stacked in favor of the good guys. Survivors, which is most anybody with an ounce of common sense and moderate reflexes, receive a certificate of achievement. The best players get a more elaborate certificate of bravery and the opportunity to have their photograph taken with a Templar Knight who has lived through at least one battle.
Needless to say, the pods have become a potent recruitment tool for the Ordo’s vehicle branch. With that in mind, a recruitment office is located just a few steps away. Those who score well on the simulators are carefully steered toward the office.
