My theory that Telepath does not take place on Earth
« on: August 18, 2015, 01:21:06 PM »

It all comes down to the Pyro Blast attack. As the Pyro Blast attack is a blast of plasma, and our air in its plasmic form is usually blue or purple, but the blast is orange, Telepath must take place on a planet with a different atmosphere. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ionized-air_glow http://telepath.wikia.com/wiki/Pyro_Blast_(TRPG2,_TPA,_TSoG)

I've also had an insight into this issue lately -- there's a surprising lack of floaty shadow creatures on the real Earth. Weird.

Don't forget the scary winged fire/ice breathing things! Err, maybe. They exist in real life lore, at least. There's also vibra, which I don't think we have on Earth either. Or man - sized preying mantises (manti?) or enormous mask - wearing bug queens.

I think there's some credit to this theory! :P

Ah, but bugfartboy fails to consider a crucial detail that could undermind his entire argument: the plural of 'mantis' is actually 'mantes'! :O

What about those obscure Woodfolk with the green skin and bows and arrows?

Do they wield bow and arrow? I remember they're weak Psy, but I don't remember reading that they use bow and arrow.

They only played a minor role in TSoG and there was that one guy who sold upgrades for Flint in TRPG2 so many people don't remember them.

I remember the Wood-Folk, I just don't remember arrows.  It's entirely likely I missed them in TSoG, though.  I haven't actually finished that either.  O_O

Every now and then a few of them try to attack you in the forest along with plants that spew poison and mantes
