As for the factions with kewl technology, I am sorry that you get no propaganda poster.  Let me simply say my loyalties will always lie with those who use clunky, ugly, crudely-functional diesel-powered thingies, regardless of race, creed, or species.

While I'm on the subject... what are the general thoughts on drones?  I have a setup with a rogue insurgent in a generation 4.1 ptiman—it has 4 remote-linked hover drones that it controls.  I was thinking a red die (short range) and a single white die for each drone—but that if lines of fire and terrain permit, the drones can pool their dice for maximal effect.  The drones and the ptiman have IFF transponders so they don't accidentally shoot each other, but that's about it.  The rogue has a pocket nuke (stolen from the Nyetchen rebels up north) and his goal is blow up a provisional gov't office, or an invader's army barracks.  Kind of a moving target a la the PM.

Permit me to wind up by saying "Kudos!" to all involved.  I have followed this blog with glee.

Warm regards,
