I demand the rights to make a cyberpunk rpg set in the Dystopia Ingen is likely to cause in the Jurassic Park series. Shady ethics, poor containment of their creations, run away biotech, and an even less ethical desperate competitor.

Today I went on a bit of a nostalgia trip through my old usenet / newsgroup posts. It was a bittersweet feeling seeing who I used to be...
...but, what's more important is that I discovered an internet fossil!
I recommended a small rpg fansite to someone on usenet in early 2003. To my surprise, the thing is still online & pretty much unchanged! https://www.byenighte.com
Love finding those *vintage* sites in the wild :)

Daleok the Vulcan* is still alot of fun to play. I'm not hating the #2D20 system soo far.
*He's not a very good Vulcan, his logic is a bit twisted, he's a little obsessed with cybernetics and androids, and he's 1/4 Klingon.
