Preferred Conclusions [GURPS 4e].

Preferred Conclusions, Ltd.

HQ: Chicago, with small field offices across the globe.

Type: Private company (primary client: Infinity Unlimited).

Purpose: Expert interdimensional forgery and document processing services.

If you’re an academic with a strong work ethic, a firm grasp of at least one historical era, and an absolute indifference to being immediately blackballed for life from working for any university and/or historical foundation, Preferred Conclusions will happily give you a job.  They’ll even throw in moving expenses. They sort of have to; people who openly work for Preferred Conclusions tend to want to move out of their old academic stomping grounds right quick, before some professor decides to get drunk one night and throw a brick through the window.

Ananeosi [GURPS 4e]

Ananeosi

This mid-level medical corporation provides fertility assistance, primarily in the field of in vitro fertilization and embryonic implantation procedures.  Ananeosi also does cutting-edge research into genetic engineering (as much as any research can be said to be ‘cutting edge’ on Homeline, these days). In terms of operations, the company is not particularly unusual or controversial, for its type.

However, in terms of raw materials, Ananeosi is very avant-garde indeed.  The company specializes in acquiring out-time genetic material for its customers.  It’s not exactly ‘designer babies:’ Ananeosi is at the same TL 8/9 safetech paradigm as the rest of Homeline.  But they can and do accommodate special requests, to the best of their ability.

IOCANE Powder [GURPS 4e]

IOCANE* Powder

*Invasive Operations (Clinical, Advanced Nano-Engineering)

(TL 11)

It typically comes in powder form; why, yes, it can be fairly said that IOCANE powder is odorless, tasteless, dissolves instantly in liquid, and can certainly be programmed to be among one of the more deadly poisons known to Man. It can be programmed to do a lot of things, in fact. That’s sort of the point.  Each dose of IOCANE Powder is programmed to duplicate the effects of any drug or poison known at TL9 or below. Changing the ‘load’ on a dose of IOCANE Powder requires a Complexity 6 computer (this would be a high-end supercomputer at TL9, and a cufflink-sized computer at TL11) and the right program. $150 per dose, LC 4: it’s supposed to be regulated, but getting a permit for use on primitive planets is dead easy.

Also, the Dungeon Fantasy Monsters 2 Kickstarter is at 69%.

More specifically, the Powered by GURPS: Dungeon Fantasy Monsters 2 & Game Reprint Kickstarter. It’s getting a little close to the wire, there. I suppose that maybe I should internally commit to running GURPS at WashingCon. Especially if I skip 2020 to go do DragonCon instead.
