Pro tip for all NPCs: if you reply the same thing twice to a player, they will leave you alone.
@WelshPixie yeah, if art is some ineffible magic they would need to explain why most of the great masters were selected almost at random and trained in glorified art factories. I just have no artistic skills because I spent my formative years learning useless trivia so I can say way too much about duck penises at parties....
Creativity is a skill that can be learned and practiced and improved upon.

I'm debating what rule system to use as sort of a baseline for discussing sci-fi RPGs. I'm divided between Open D6 and Fudge, I like Savage Worlds but I haven't used it enough myself, and I love OSR sci-fi but I think that would flavor things a bit much. Thoughts?
