Black Box FAX Machines
« on: 28 February 2021, 11:22:01 »
Hi, quick question about the Black Box fax machines.

Are they still available in the Dark Age/IlClan time frame and if so who is currently using them?

Thanks.

Hi, sorry to bring this back up but i've been told there's a working example in book 1 of the Rouge Academy trilogy which is set in 3150.

Yes, I know.

Please understand, there isn't a reference that can be found that will change this. It's a concerted decision from management and development for the setting and not something that can be "aha!"ed. They're no longer around (other than at worst a deus ex-machina, which is how they were orignally introduced), being produced, and you'll see less of them moving forward.

Fair enough and thanks for answering, I know several people were interested.
