I think you are right, as crony capitalism would include both these emotions and more. I’m not saying only one…
Do you want SoW and Sciror fail?
Companies fail all the time, and games companies are no exception. It may seem greedy on my part, but if we are going to make Spheres of War (SoW) and Sciror community succeed, we’ll all need to chip in. You can directly support this endeavour through Patreon, PayPal and sweet, sweet, Bitcoins. As always, I’ll be releasing everything I create for free on my website. As you can imagine free does not pay well, but I’m hoping ‘digital busking’ I outlined years ago on Artists Unchained works out (this is me putting my money where my mouth is!) As I complete sections of Sciror and SoW I’ll compile them into PDFs for you to download, and later offer paid for books (Print on Demand via Lulu and ePub via Amazon).
Is it a ridiculous idea, for you to support me on Patreon? More backers means more time spent of creating new worlds and games for you to explore. My goal is for everyone who’d be an early adopter, to look back on it with pride 10 years from now, as gamers from all over the world enjoy the fast paced conflicts within Spheres of War and revel in the crazy backgrounds of Sciror. Is this a silly dream?
Beer! Who doesn’t like a nice frosty cold one? Beer aids creativity, and with a beer in my hand, I’ll weave you a crazy tale you’ve never heard before! The button below is a one time payment (not reoccurring), and each toast furthers the Sciror and Spheres of War cause. There is space for a message, and you can let me know what you are tipping me for, so I know what is gaining traction for the future.
I love new technologies and how they change the world, and BitCoin is an oldie, but a good ‘um. For some reason it always always reminds me of ye ol’ pirates, like they are gold doubloons or something, that you could bury on an island. If you want to send me whole BitCoins, or little bitty bits of a BitCoin, please use the button below;
Not Bitcoin Cash!
This Bitcoin link will open your default wallet, if you have it set up that way, otherwise nothing will happen. I use BitPay. Otherwise copy and paste the address from this file and send me some treasure!

To keep up with the conversations, subscribe to my RSS feeds, and have all the latest links on your bookmark toolbar. RSS seems to have fallen out of favour, and has been removed from some browsers, but I still use it. On Firefox you can use this addon: Livemarks, to enable you to subscribe to feeds, and then all the comments and posts are there on your bowser’s Bookmark Toolbar. On Chrome you could try; Foxish Live RSS, or RSS Live Links, both seem pretty good, Foxish creates the traditional RSS folder, while Live Links has a little toolbar icon.
As I am always working on things, with everything being a continuous WIP, I thrive on feedback. Let me know what you think and jump into a conversation. Agree or disagree, like or dislike, if you can form a good argument I want to hear it!
Fun video, and stellar engines are definitely within the Machine’s power levels, as they already have the ‘Stapledon Compression Spheres’.…
Turing Test: The machines have a definition of ‘human’ that is one party within the Mars Accords. The Machines do…
I feel as if your versions for Greed and Envy could both take place in crony capitalist like worlds. Both…
TURING TEST: I really can’t help but think of the Gom Jebbar from Dune. It could be that the Machines…
