I\'m not convinced about the Evil Versus Evil trope for the ending choices. Both of the stated factions firmly believe that they\'re in the right for doing what they\'ve done and are doing now. They both have sympathetic motives, as well, even if their methods may seem extreme or dangerous. I\'d be more inclined to call the endings Grey And Grey Morality, especially given that there\'s a Take A Third Option available. And while the endings seem hopeful, there\'s still undercurrents of uncertainty, and the potential for past mistakes to repeat in all of them.

Since Age of Wonders has a character page, should we make one for Planetfall? It\'ll contain folders for each race, secret technology (which are like classes in Age of Wonders), NPC factions, and the characters that show up in the campaign.

Sounds like a lot of work, but why not. You can get it started if you like.

Regarding the Secret Tech potholes; most of the changes are alright, but Minovsky Physics for VoidTech doesn\'t really fit — VoidTech is soft as heck. It\'s a playful homage to the Hollywood, pop culture understanding of modern theoretical physics, but not really concerned with sensible execution. To avoid an edit war, maybe Quantum Mechanics Can Do Anything would be a better pothole?

Sounds good to me. Power Of The Void doesn\'t quite fit despite the name, so yeah.

I mean, originally, all the potholes were way worse, so if you guys have more precise ones you can point stuff to, by all means.

(Voidtech to Time Master, for instance, and Psynumbra to Black Magic.)

How well does it match the trope?
