This doesn't mean that they aren't strong or powerful by any means. Just, this is the style of steampunk tech that I want to see.

What I don't want to see is a Star Destroyer free-firing orbital cannons without recourse.

EDIT: An example I gave Baron is that I am not ok with nuclear powered, high-tech jet propulsion. But I am ok with jet propulsion that is powered by six guys shoveling coal into a furnace that directs heat into a turbine (perhaps powered by a squad of men on bicycles that cause it to spin) creating thrust.
[[Which is definitely not good, I get it. I've been a GM before, and it's absolutely crazy what kind of insane stuff people come up with to turn their characters into veritable Juggernauts if you don't keep them in check. I had one guy whose answer to absolutely everything was "I dodged it." Feel free to call us out on that, or we'll take it too far.

Also, that's why I'm going to drop the "curse" bit. Cool background? Yes. Fun to play with? Yes. Seriously broken? Sadly, yes.]]

( I just want to put it out there that we never said we had SC2 like technology. In case there was any confusion on that. Its always been steampunkish)

((By the way Sagary, as for my idea with Reich, I'd be fine with him dying after the event took place if it's worked in somehow. I do have a method for bringing Reich back after it in a different way then he's returned before, but once he's back he'd be quite weakened for some time for obvious reasons that you are aware of. It would also take time. XD))

(Just wanted to state it. Its not like we are trying to godmode with our tech.)

I understand, but I think the NMR players weren't quite sure of the extent of the IsC's tech. They were feeling a bit overwhelmed. So by drawing these lines, every can now understand what they are and aren't capable of.

FYI, Baron's big ship that he posted about is still a huge threat to the NMR. Just know that it is not without weakness.

(We never tried to imply they didn't have weaknesses everything does. Look at Reich. He seems to have a weakness, at least he states he does anyway, we don't know what it is of course but he has one. same concept.)
