In TRPG2, where does it show shadow psy fighters? And the shadow Psy's in TPA2 could just have had an undeveloped gift.
I never said there were any shadow psy fighters in TRPG2.  In TPA2, the battlefield discriptions speak of members of the Psy Academy and then those battlefields show Shadow Psy Fighters.

Again, bringing this topic back to light, as Somnus is now in-game, and we see how it's definitely been expanded, with a potential for many new areas. Whilst it is being constructed, methinks it's worth quickly looking over at all of the suggested ideas and make a formalised list of the areas we as fans really would like to see in Somnus, before Craig completes it!

Well, no need to create a new thread, but yes- this is to keep Craig from taking hours to sift through the numerous threads and posts that we make and let him see what the general populace really wants to see, not just one or two members, but most- and those usually are the best ideas, suited better than others to the Telepath universe style.
Thus, would you actually like to contribute to the list and start things off?

I know, I know... just saying it wouldn't be a bad idea to have a Formulated version of this thread.

Quote from: For those unfamiliar with the old forums
Old Forum Ideas:
*Nightling at the Somnus Public Library
*The Parliament in the Queen's Palace (maybe Senator Cerzak)
*Festus at his own clinic
*Darkling & Shadowboxer at their bar, the Barracks (the TRPG2 headquarters)
*Niven as a successful showman that performs at the Barracks
*Malis' Mansion (possibly bought from Thallion)
*The secret headquarters of the Assassin's Cult
*The Military Academy General Darkeye & Cezak went to
*One can buy reconstruction bonds at the Shadowlands National Bond Office
*Spriggats and Shadowlings floating through the streets like the people of Ravinale
*A Light Spriggat NPC that can be asked about her color, like Lala

New Idea
In Telepath Psy Arena 2, one can train at The Oubliette (a training ground full of spriggat rebels and shadowling sympathizers). It would be cool to meet a former shadowling sympathizer in the new Somnus.  He could tell stories about how the shadowling sympathizers were secretly supporting the Dissidents with supplies and information.  A sympathizer could have given Tastidian misinformation about the Fake Golem Factory.  Any thoughts?
Are  you guys ok about these ideas being formulated?

I had exacly that list in mind. What would be nice is to have people rank the ideas in order of preference, plus throw in some new ideas from this thread to add to the list. Then, make a ranked list, so Craig knows what we want most and what we wouldn't mind at all being omitted.

We could pick the top 10 ideas and turn them into a poll.  If everyone gets 3-5 votes, then we can see which ideas are the most popular.

Yep, again- that's what I had in mind, but first we have to select the said 10 ideas- although those in the list are mostly popular, I believe there was one or two that was mentioned in the new forums back in winter/spring. Let's see what else folks would like to add, then we can create the poll and let folks choose (5 probably would be better so that there is a greater spread of votes over a lrager number of options).

Some of the things from the list have already been implemented, for instance- Sproggats and Shadowlings floating around the streets. Some of the ideas can be moved outside Somnus - like the military academy which Gen. Darkeye and Cerzak attended.

Some are NPC, rather than building structure-related. Maybe we can split the list into two parts: a list where Craig "only" needs to add in the dialogue (e.g. a Shadowling sympathiser NPC, anything else that uses previous buildings- like the Shadowlands National Bond Office- would be neat to have Penubra still working there, going slightly purple); a list where many additional new graphics are required (e.g. a new building- like the clinic or the library, or many new graphics, like the new government, etc).

The unstriked are my ten choices for the poll.  I'd say 4 would be a nice even number for picks.

Have you had a look at the ideas expressed in this thread, not just the ones from the old forums?
Btw, would you like to order the list in what would you like to see most to least?

Would anyone else like to give their feedback into the somnus wishlist, seeing as their so much activity in terms of getting ideas formulated?

Read past the first sentence.

*the_oubliette training ground
You need to read the suggestions before eliminating them, because the obuilette wasn't the suggestion.  The Oubilette training ground was in Ravinale; not Somnus.  My suggestion was to meet a shadowling who sympathizerd with the Dissidents during the Shadow War.  These sympathiers could be like the Germans who helped Jews and Allied forces in WWII.
