17 – Super Science

Advanced technology beyond our imagination. Unbelievable discoveries. Dimensions and galaxies unknown. What happens when you push science fiction to the limits? Super Science is a tone where scientific discoveries that push past the boundaries of our real world are found, allowing the audience and readers to explore a world beyond what we can normally conceive. Where the best science fiction relies on some scientific liberties, super science kicks on its warp drive and blows past all scientific constraints. Come explore this vast enterprise of tools and setting ideas found with this tonal setting!

  • Why doesn’t Dune have ‘Thinking Machines’? – Quinn’s ideas does yeoman’s work explaining Dune lore. If you’re going to limit your tech with cultural taboos this is how you do it.
