CORELINE (D20 Modern/D20 BESM Setting).

Depends on the specific location. Example: The Pokemon island chain/pocket dimension is smack in the middle of the way between Japan and Hawaii, so any transportation that goes between those two points will need to go around a bubble of about 200 nautical miles otherwise they will need to deal with an additional three or four days' trip as they go through.



For the time being, let's say the island chain's bubble is in that spot marked "43 Million Years".

In the case of Hyrule, it's not visible until you enter it, and it "expands" the area of the Pennsylvania Wilds (or the Allegheny National Forest, haven't completely decided yet) by a few hundred miles. The bubble that encases it would probably reach 5 to seven thousand feet high (still thinking that part over)? Dimensional portals probably open to specific locations within Hyrule, like a portal that is meant to go to the Water Plane drops you in the entrance of the Water Temple.
 
The Manga Pathfinder link makes me think that the BESM D20 SRD got modified for Pathfinder. Which I think it's cool. Gives me a reference to work on.
 
Was gonna work on an info packet for Equestria. Got really awfully sick. Still sick but quite definitely recovering. I need to get off my butt and work on this.

Something I was using in my on again off again d20 Modern game. It's an operator's communications array called a Hyde Communications Array.

Consists of:
1. Ear piece with fiber mike boom.
2. HUD Lens with fiber optic relay remote / antenna receiver.
3. Wrist band Interface.
4. Hyde Receiver Unit.

Basic Programming for each Hyde Receiver Unit:
1. Office Suite for creating documents with voice to text.
2. Camera / Video Recording/Playback.
3. GPS Location and Azimuth Awareness with support program protocol.
4. Facial Recognition / Sensitive Item Database.
5. Multi Channel Voice Communication / Scramble.
6. Remote Viewing / Hearing.
7. Dust Off Request focused on unit's location.
8. Defense Network secure internet operating and messaging system.
9. IFF Transmitter / Reciever.

Fire Support programming called Red Leg Protocol System.
1. Range Finder.
2. Multi Platform Fire Support TacFire Node Delegate capable of interfacing with in theater fire support assets.
3. Organic When Ready Sniper Support.


Medical Program Suite called Caduceus Protocol System.
1. Medical Encyclopedia and Procedures PDF Library.
2. Tele-Surgery with holographic overlay.
3. 9 Line Medevac Request (Autofill w/ Basic Programming #3).
4. Mike boom sonic echo burst w/ digital interpretation and holographic overlay.

My players are having a blast with this and I can do mission playbacks or refresh their memories by a successfull Use Device check. And I've been using random messages through the character's DefNet System to introduce other personalities.

There's an island off the US southeast state of Georgia named Jekyll Island that I put on a fictional training facility and clearing house for low level missions named Hyde Central. This is essentially a kiddie pool until I know what kind of flavor the players want to go. So far, the players have met my variant of AEGIS (Alien Extermination and Global Interdiction Squadron) which are my XCOM knock offs. There are other elite type agencies that skim the grounds of Hyde for recruits.

No, but I've borrowed heavily from these and other boards. Figured I'd return the favor. As a courtesy though, I usually tend to credit the source I borrow from. Nothing I've posted is from other sources.

That aside, I really love coming to these alternate boards to see what new things are being created and interpretations of the previous things I enjoy. I'll try to submit stuff but you guys are the rockstars.

You have stats for this? If not, I can probably put some together, or my own interpretation of it.
Although I'd have to ask what an "Organic When Ready Sniper Support" is.. and Multi Platform Fire Support TacFire Node Delegate is (I'm assuming some kind of datalink/laser painter for nearby launch platforms or fighters using laser rider/smart munitions?)

Also the Mike Boom sonic echo burst.. is that some kind of sonic attack? like a flash bang only the bang part? And the 9 Line Medevac request autofill part I'm not sure what that is..

I don't have stats for any of it but will list skills I had them do while performing an action. I borrowed some of the form from the Final Fantasy Spirits Within movie. I liked the wrist component of her commo gear and thought a mainframe the size of a cell phone in the small of the back would be non intrusive also. Then I liked the idea of a contact lens w/ fiber optic remote antenna that is blue toothed to the Hyde mainframe and ear piece for a overall strategic, tactical, and theater operations.

I'll assume the Basic Programming package is self explanatory. What I didn't mention is that the user can couple as many Basic Programming functions together as needed to formulate a report, plan a rescue,...whatever, and keep it on a squad level secure network.

Warrior Protocols
Red Leg Protocol System comes with:
Range Finder is centered on the User's EXACT GPS LOCATION to the inch coupled with the HUD Lens with fiber optic relay remote / antenna receiver and GPS Location and Azimuth Awareness with support program protocol.
Multi Platform Fire Support TacFire Node Delegate capable of interfacing with in theater fire support assets. This gives the User a prioritized backdoor connection to the local Tactical or Strategic Fire Support Assets while on mission. This protocol allows the user to accurately aim and coordinate Fire Support Assets electronically or verbally to the target which is the next operational step for the Range Finder function. Additionally, other friendly units can transmit On Call fire requests to the User to task the Fire Support Asset. The Multi Platform Fire Support portion means the protocol can negotiate with any unit whether it's a mortar team leader, MLRS Rocket Battery, AC-130 Gunships, Naval Artillery, even Predator Drones if in the area. The Hyde unit is able to "read" local radio traffic and will automatically negotiate an opening on the local unit net with background programming. Usually the receiving Tactical Fire element (TacFire) see's the request as a Priority Unit that doesn't need to identify itself but does still have to follow the Resources vs Target formula. The available type unit is identified in the User's ear by a stylized tone or chime that sound when that unit becomes immediately ready to support the mission. Predator Drone reconnaissance is usually available but Predator Drone action is still slow and the User will most likely have to identify themselves and the Drone is a Restricted asset.
Organic When Ready Sniper Support is the ability to gain a prioritized backdoor connection to the local In Theater Target Interdiction Specialists if discreet is needed. This protocol allows the user to accurately aim and coordinate Target Interdiction Specialists electronically or verbally to the target which is another operational step for the Range Finder function. The stylized tone for this is usually a Bolt sliding back to the rear of a rifle then back again.

Caduceus Protocol System comes with:
Medical Encyclopedia and Procedures PDF Library so the User shouldn't have to worry about incorrectly performing a procedure.
Tele-Surgery with holographic overlay is transmitted to the User's HUD Lens with fiber optic relay remote / antenna receiver.
The 9 Line Medevac Request (Autofill w/ Basic Programming #3) function is a Medical Evacuation Request that follows the format (http://ciomr.org/download/omc/9Line/9 line v1.5.pdf). User entries are still necessary to complete the function.
The Mike boom sonic echo burst w/ digital interpretation and holographic overlay allows for the mike boom to project a localized ultrasound to produce an image to assist the medic.
Additionally, other friendly units can transmit medical requests (Basic programming 3 and 9) to the User and prioritize the request. Angel request means Medical Support is required, area secured. Valkyrie request means Medical Support is requested, area hostile and come prepared. Halo request is the last request type that is usually an automated message that means Medical Support required and Life Signs dwindling, immediate response preferred.

There are other Warrior Protocol variants that I haven't mapped out yet. Tell me what you think.

Some ideas I have, that need fleshing out:

Ferenginar-Terran Commerce Guild, a trade association that claims to facilitate trade between the Ferengi Alliance and Earth, but is more concerned in preventing certain technologies, like the replicator from becoming common on Earth. This way the Ferengi have more trade opportunities with Earth, since most people can't just replicate a phaser, for instance.

Deep Space Koprulu One, a Frontier-class space station in orbit over the planet Haven in the Koprulu Sector. Haven remained independent of the Dominion in Coreline and is now a protectorate of the United Federation of Planets. The station's mission is to maintain diplomatic ties with the local governments, defend Federation protectorates like Haven and maintain vessels of the Federation and allied governments, including the Klingon Empire, Romulan Republic and Umojan Protectorate, often serving as a jumping off point for missions of exploration in the Sector and surrounding space.

Interesting idea. Mind you replicators can't replicate EVERYTHING. most replicators are programmed to not create weapons or dangerous chemicals. and power sources can't be replicated as whole with power (have to be charged or replicated in pieces). So any Federation replicator that regular people own won't do weapons. But this is an interesting concept for trade purposes.

Frontier-class station.. is that something actually in Star Trek (or starcraft) ?
