Nescire autem quid ante quam natus sis acciderit, id est semper esse puerum. Quid enim est aetas hominis, nisi ea memoria rerum veterum cum superiorum aetate contexitur? -- Cicero, Marcus Tullius (106-43BC)

comment What might “The Demiurge” be?
The Gnostic world view has a pretty clear idea of what the Demiurge is. Although I am not sure how it relates to NWD.

comment Larping space and recruiting help
You have two questions here. I have a good answer to the second one (where to find a good place to larp) and will post it if you open a new question.

comment Would an emp-grenade disable cyber-/bodyware?
Logically, any cyberware that does not have defences against EMP is going to be a pretty poor quality. But I am not familiar with any such rules as such.

comment How much is enough for a 5th-ranked character to beat a 2nd-ranked character?
@Thanuir: It's been a long time since I played Amber but I seem to remember that the numbers do mean something as well... Most of the NPCs have numbers not ranks.

comment How to manage play in a zombie RPG pre outbreak
Seamus, could you edit your question to make it more focused? For example, add what the players are playing: (para)military, emergency service, civilians, random jobs, etc... or a mixture of all the above. Also, how powerful are they? Where are they starting: First, second, or third world, isolated or heavily linked? What style is your game: Horror, comedy, shoot 'em up, ...? What themes are you and your players seeking to explore within this game? Which zombie flavour are your trying to emulate -- Walking Dead? 28 days later? Warm bodies? Bio-hazard/Resident Evil?

+1. While broad in scope, the question does focus on one focuses situation. Thus I think the question can be answered. However, I'll wait before answering it just in case...

comment How can I manage my campaign digitally, without using a screen at the table?
I really hope this is not a unicorn... I would be very interested in said software. Of course, if none exists, we could always start one on github.
