Are there any limits on technology (Weapons, air, space, ect.) in Ad Kay stories and if there are what are the limits.

The tech is whatever is appropriate to the time the particular story is set in. Just as a "for instance", the Kitsune is loosely based on na existing bush aircraft with a few weaks to suit the story and the name.

As Mike said, regarding technology it's a real world setting. Meaning anything that does work in RL should work in the stories as well. Anything else... well, I would guess with exceptions (like the occasional cybernetic limb) no sci-fi stuff allowed.

As far as technology goes yea its timeline based... like can't have stuff from 2005 in 1982

...Well with exceptions of corse. Then theres the stuff that hasent been invented yet... future and alien stuff these are IFy.

Also ya althou I think none here would mind being wrote about it might be best to ask first...

Also in reguard to the death comment... I think Vee is already there so life may be out of charator.

Ill say it one more time and then sum more later on... yall are welcome to use me in the story... all I ask is that you do to <WINK>

heh,as far as Tech, Planet Furry, the world where AK takes place, is well, whatever time frame you want to write the story in. In my last AK story, I and my bride are picked up by a shuttlecraft as we go off-planet, but that was seen in a flashback, so, whatever you can fit between yer ears, pal, just make it funny, punny, and Adventure Kay. (Tygon, I know your latest in the genre is a more serious story, but hey that's fine too, I guess. What say ye, AK fans?)

LOL! Tech is only part of the essance that is Adventure Kay. It's all about having fun! Having a laugh and enjoying the story. If you'll notice, no two stories have the same technology. Some authors have fun gadgets. Some authors have more artifacts. Me? I say so long as it's plausible, it's fair game!

So then I might be able to use Corelian Corvettes. Twisted Evil Troop insertion ships and supply drop ships would be their main role in the story though at one point one might be used as an orbital bomber. As for furs getting axed, I know that goes for furs from PF and would never think of doing that to any PF fur, but what about nameless soldiers?

Righto then. Oh well I was already thinking up crazy ways to disable the wolf revolution soldiers anyways, just wanting to clarify.

I personally would find that to be too much sci-fi to fit in the stories... good thing nobody asked me I guess.

I don't doubt that you did. If you think long enough you could find an explanation for the Death Star orbiting the planet. That doesn't mean that it should be done though.

But don't mind me. This just doesn't feel right to me, but that's just me.
