Check out this new article from the Daily Illuminator that Steve Jackson Games posted:

April 17, 2011: Entertaining Evolution (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/archives.html?m=April&y=2011&d=17)



http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/reignsteel/img/cover2_sm.jpg (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/reignsteel/) When you install a Cyclone Engine (http://www.cyclonepower.com/) (you know, the biomass-fueled engine that was labeled "meat-eater" by Wired (http://www.wired.com/underwire/2009/07/military-researchers-develop-corpse-eating-robots/) a few years ago) onto a surveillance robot that knows how to stay out of sight (http://www.newscientist.com/article/mg20928044.700-surveillance-robots-know-when-to-hide.html), you have either an extremely long-range drone, or a massive "robots will destroy us all! (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/reignsteel/)" scare.</p>

I'm hoping for a little of both. One to be practical; the other because I find media frenzies entertaining.</p>
