    That's actually called out as a specific use of Vitakinesis (five dots in Iatrosis, Adjust Template).

      Or, you could use the right tool for the job.

      • I don't see a Q&A thread so I will ask here.

        It seems to me we are missing a Performance and Craft ability. Though it seems Technology can be used to repair and craft, its very emphasized that its more for electronics and such. And how do we do a Performance roll, like play the guitar, or do a fancy dance or Sing? Maybe an edge?


        It is a time for great deeds!

          To my understanding (and this applies to Scion too, so I would imagine it would apply to all Storypath games), you simply don't have a Craft or a Performance skill. Instead, one of your paths aligns appropriately (something like a Tinkerer or a Rock Star Path), and then what matters is the point of the roll? Are you trying to make people feel something? Presence+Empathy. Are you trying to show off your technical expertise while dancing? Dexterity+Athletics. Are you leading people to goal, like in any number of musicals? Presence+Command. Are you showcasing a specific And so on.

          For Craft, again, it matters what the relevant path is and then what you're crafting/repairing. If it is a beautiful portrait or sculpture, it would probably be Dexterity+Humanties, maybe Presence+Humanities for a particularly emotional piece. Are you building a quick-and-dirty shelter in the middle of the woods to keep you out of the rain? Intellect+Survival. Some sort of gadget? Intellect+Science or Technology to plan it, Cunning to jury-rig it, Dexterity if it volatile.

            “Artistic Talent” is a 1-3 point edge. You gain an Enhancement from the Edge toward the goal of your performance or creation (probably Persuasion, Command, Culture, or Larceny)

            • So technically aren't the Doyen basically Psiads?

              Comment


              • Depends what you mean. If you define psiads as naturally-occurring psions, then you could say yes. If you define psiads as naturally-occurring human psions, no.

                If you’re using some other definition entirely, you’ll have to let us know what you’re thinking.

                  This.

                  Because to me that is what a Psiad is, a naturally occurring Psion.

                  Well, really, we should more aptly say that a Psion is an artificial Psiad, but yeah. Hehe

                  Thanks for the response.

                  • I'm not sure you could call the Doyen psiads, though, even if you were using the broader definition of "naturally occurring psion." Because they are extensively genetically engineered. They just stopped short of whatever the final stage of psi power happened to be.

                    • Ok I don't see this discussed anywhere else so I'm going to post it here. In the manuscript it says that a tesser can be added to any vessel of size 4 or greater that has the psi tag. By my read, that means an Orgotek Scarab frigate is valid and can run the tesser assuming it has the ARES pod. Is that a correct interpretation?

                      • Alright, I know I'm super late on this, but this thread still seems like the best place for general questions. If the limit for teleportation jumps is within the same galaxy, how do jump ships cross lightyears of space? Do they do that in multiple jumps or does some part of the ship help them?

                          Well, the Milky Way galaxy is 100,000 lightyears across, so they don't need to be able to cross the galactic border to travel lightyears. The next closest galaxy (full, not satelite) is Andromeda and it is 2.5 million lightyears away from Earth.

                            Are you confusing galaxies and solar systems? Interstellar jumps between solar systems cross light years of space within the same galaxy. Given the number of star systems in the Milky Way, I honestly can’t imagine a narrative reason to move beyond it in the Aeon setting - I doubt even the Doyen have explored ALL of it.

                              As others have suggested, you may be confusing galaxies and solar systems. The closest star to Earth is Promixma Centauri, and it's 4.2 light years away. The USS Voyager in Star Trek: Voyager was kicked 70,000 light years away and had an extremely long journey ahead of it to return home. Both Proxima Centauri and the destination of the USS Voyager are within the Milky Way galaxy. If Leviathans are limited to travel within our galaxy that doesn't really pose a problem.

                              Nearly the entirety of Star Trek and the Mass Effect trilogy takes place within the Milky Way. it's plenty big.

                              • Ah crap I was. It's been way to long since I've looked into anything astrology, thought those were way smaller. Sorry, ignore me.
