    Worm, a fantastic web serial, is owned by Wildbow. This quest will spoil a great deal - if not all - of the story, so if you haven't finished it already... go read it now! (Unless you don't care about spoilers, that is.)

    Exalted, a delightful RPG system, is owned by White Wolf and CCP Games. Support the game by picking up a few PDFs on Drive-Thru RPG, would ya?

    By the way, I like a great deal of the costume ideas proposed. +1 XP for the help!

    You guys will be getting the chance to choose which costume you ultimately went with at the end of this update, so these ideas have not gone to waste.

    OK Grom, I'm curious. Is the thread title mocking your voters for making Taylor a cheerleader?

    Nah, I just like the alliteration. I wouldn't have put cheerleading as a possibility if I didn't enjoy the idea of it in the first place.

    That's actually really useful, thanks for that. I've been wondering about a few of those acronyms.

    Now all I need is some sort of guide to on how to make links work...

    Here you go
    It also covers other things, too.
    It's just [ url=link ] what the link will say [ /url] without the spaces in the brackets.

    Well yes. If SCIENCE! isn't the answer to your problem you aren't using enough of it.

    On a separate track, the reason that I am so for pushing the biological chip route is not just for drones. Having them for our suit makes controlling it a trivial matter and Dragon could really use them as well instead of the funky fetus thing for a bio-processor.

  22. The Endbringer Prediction Program is just supposed to give advance warning of Endbringer Attacks by extrapolating past data of what they look for and what can be sensed of their movements. It's useless when it's already there.

    The Leviathan prediction program that Armsmaster uses in canon extrapolates Levi's next move with Levi's past tactics. However, Leviathan fights somewhat reactively, so the program cannot predict his actions when reacting to people who it has not been programmed to predict (everyone but Armsmaster). That's why Armsmaster had to fight it alone in canon, to cut down on the variables. Giving it to everyone wouldn't work because it would be impossible to program it with all the ins and outs of everyone's powers and fighting style, especially given variable turnouts among rogues and villains.
