Noctivagant 4: Lumine in Caligo

Lights again kindle in the murk, xenomantic answers to questions nobody asked, found in silhouettes pacing the dank streets.

Retro Tech: Tactical Psionic Devices of the Early Strata, Pt. III

One short-lived Tactical Psionic Device developed by the Orville Corporation was the TPD-450, a Remote Pungeoning Console that preceded the “Land Mind” TPDs put in place during the Rev. Resbo Era [Strata XIX-XXVII].
  The TPD-450’s brief spotlight was during Strata XIII-XVII [Megis Era] as Sheva brainwave sensors were first utilised, replacing basic ghee-factor Psi-Scan modules common in older models.
  The TPD-450 was notable for its introduction of “Mr Sujay,” an intelligent user interface that assisted users by way of an interactive animated avatar which integrated with pungeonary procedurals. Unfortunately, the feature drew a strongly negative response from many users after the avatar would embark on destructive quines separate from its original programming (blamed by critics on bad coding within the processor core, yet denied by Orville).
  Regrettably, the TPD-450 suffered from the same safety and fidelity liabilities that forced the discontinuation of the TPD-311 model, itself a supposed improvement on the TPD-111 model. Fortunately, the successor “Land Mind” model TPD was a great success and paved the way for Orville’s future improvements in this technological sphere.
