This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

L00 Space - Roads question
« on: November 01, 2021, 12:19:47 PM »
In a space station, there is no open sky, running water, or underground. Does that mean that there can be no Road access to the space station? Only to one of the planets in that world?

"Where we're going, we don't need roads..." 

A road is nice since it gives a direction and landmarks to shift shadows, but there are plenty of times in the books where there were no roads.  Walk through a town, add a little metal here and there, pass though an arch or under a bridge to add a ceiling, add the right stars, alter the people and their language as you go.  You're not walking through the vacuum of space but along a metal grill that just happens to be where you want to go.

As for something like the Black Road, any corridor or cargo rail system is a path to travel, it's a chaos thing weaving in and out of shadow like a snake.  From a native's perspective, travelers would fade in at one end, gain solidity, and fade out at the other.

Here's the answer in my book...

Quote
The Hadean Road is granted by Hades and ultimately leads to the Underworld. It consists of underground tunnels, passages, warrens, steam tunnels, sewers, mine shafts, and subways. This road leads to any realm in which underground passes can be found.

So you can easily connect the bowels of the earth to the bowels of a space station.  If you have a sense of humor, you could connect docks via the Atlantean Road.  Imagine a sailing ship pulling into the space dock.  :-)

Isnt the view seen from a space station a black void full of stars, so basically the sky at night thou? Also closing of ones eyes enables to travel the road while visualising the environments from memory, basically the connecting factor beeing the traveller themselves.

Getting very very drunk on self produced or smuggled alcohol may result in discovering unexpected vistas. Hopefully not in a venting airlock..

Also, Moonways(as in roads travelled by people who fixate on the Moon) can connect all over where the Moon has been seen. This in turn could enable the PCs to discover those who are its servants, priests, mad champions, prisoners or enigmatic hermits. Regardless, there is always acess to some road imho.

Thanks or the answers. So it could be anything from 1 road to all 3 depending on interpretation...
