Taking a chance on getting the kinks out of the Androids...

I am still working on the concept of androids for NeoExodus and then I can up with an idea that I originally had planned for another race that was originally based off of Senson Girl of the Legion of Super Heroes. Her original powers of illusion generation were enhanced giving her the ability to see beyond the illusions of life (such as the "illusions" of distance and physical obstacles). I like this idea and could work very cool of a race; This ability plues the ability of her teammate, Dawnstar whose unique powers include the ability to track life forms and objects across light years of distance and through interstellar space; could have interesting effects on a game. I think the idea of the androids always looking for the “truth” of things that can be a cool piece of fluff that can have interesting game mechanics attached to it.

Add on to that a concept that I saw once while watching the sci-fi tv show, Space: Above and Beyond that artificial Intelligent robots, which were called Silicates (I love that name. The Silicates referred to humans Carbonites) rebel from their human creators on a simple concept created by an engineer programming a simple line of code that gave them the ability , “Taking a chance” or simply take risk that a machine would not logically do. The artificial intelligent robots then become fascinated with the idea of taking a risk and gambling. It becomes their religion to them. What a concept: Robots looking for the “truth of things and who are religious fanatics about gambling and taking a chance. I wonder where we will be able to go with that idea. Talk to you later…
