As Level 7 refers to the highest threat rank of a nuclear accident/ disaster. It makes sense that this will be a post apocalyptic type setting. There is also a novel by Mordecai Roshwald of the same name that is post-apocalyptic.
Uh oh! The forum Farseers have been casting those pesky runes again! It's either that or somebody has been using the medium of internet forums to present subjective and uninformed assumptions as fact, (but the possibility of somebody using wraithbone trinkets to sift the skein of possible fates is far more likely).
I hestiate to point out - but feel that it is my solemn responsibility to do so - that there is also a book called 'The Pickwick Papers' by Charles Dickens. Although I spent many an hour delighting in the bumbling, good-natured misadventures of those jolly Englishmen and their unconscious commentary about life, the universe and everything, I sincerely hope that Privateer Press won't be considering the book's Idyllic, pastoral Victorian setting as the basis for their new science fiction game.
If we follow Veneficus example and engage in scientific abstraction based on things that are called the same thing as other things so must be the same thing as those things, then we could be looking at the following scenario:
Samuel Pickwick's feat allows his controlling player to make a confusing social gaff over a polite game of whist in the drawing room, eliciting remonstrative stares from those in attendance. It also allows him to be embarrassed by failing to safely drive a horse-drawn carriage and grab some cunt's nose in a fit of pique.
is perfectly acceptable in a Dickensian period drama, but not a science-fiction game.
GET IT TOGETHER PRIVATEER PRESS!!!
