  • Ask a Dev

    Accidentally deleted the previous thread, so let's start over.

    Devs include, but are not limited to:
    • Eddy Webb (eddyfate), Onyx Path in-house developer
    • Ian A. A. Watson (IanWatson), Trinity Continuum Content Lead
    • Danielle Lauzon (impernious), Storypath guru, Adventure! developer
    • John Snead (John Snead), Æon developer
    • Steve Kenson, Aberrant developer
    • Leath Sheales (Bunyip), developer (Æon RMCs)
    Reminder:
    1. Ask a Dev does not mean "ask each other." If you're going to answer someone else's question and you are not a dev, you risk your comment being deleted.
    2. If you want to start a back-and-forth dialogue or you want to discuss a side tangent, start a new thread. That's not what this thread is for.

    Can Psions raise their Psi past 7?

    Can Psiads raise their Psi past 6?

      There is no difficulty level chart in Trinity like the one in Scion: Origin on page 63 to help GMs assign appropriate Difficulties for tasks. Is that chart still relevant to the Trinity game or is Trinity different enough that assigning difficulty levels are different? Are the probabilities between the two games the same?

        Hello, not so dev question but still related to you guys. Are there plans for official rules to make Psions work better against Aberrant scale?
        There were some comments back then about a possible supplement, but it was not definitive, so... asking don’t offend anyone...

          No to both.

            I'm not sure what you're asking about -- I don't think we've said anything along those lines before -- but no, we have no current plans to do anything markedly different with psion abilities within the Æon timeframe.

              During Aberrant KS Danielle talked about some possible rules for Psions become able to increase their power Scale when fighting Aberrants (so it’s not a automatic fail when the Aberrant have Durability Scale 4+), but there were no plans to put it in a book, at least not one soon...

                Just purchased the Aeon corebook from Driverthru, and was suprised to find that one of the files is marked "With Video". What is this awesome never before seen thing?

                  Click the images on pages 39, 119, and 131.

                    In the Aeon Supplement that includes novas there should be a small note about psions vs. novas for that supplement. Otherwise, aberrants are antagonists and use the antagonist rules presented in the Aeon books.

                      I was actually kind of shocked to see that this is true that Trinity doesn't have a Difficulty chart. I thought I had one, but at some point everything blurs together. If you want to use Scion's Difficulty chart, it would serve just fine. You may find Trinity characters with slightly higher Enhancement values than Scion characters, but they don't have access to as much Scale (at least not until Aberrant which is why we tossed an Enhancement cap into that game) so you should end up with similar probabilities until your characters have access to lots of psi powers. So maybe at that point you'll want to adjust accordingly.

                        Is that one of the future books?

                          Asked this in the old thread, but wanted a chance to get it on record again.


                          When using a mixed action to attack multiple targets as described on page 103, can you attack the same opponent multiple times with a mixed action?

                            Can you use Forceful Martial Arts and Precise Martial Arts simultaneously?

                              Yes

                              When using a mixed action to attack multiple targets as described on page 103, can you attack the same opponent multiple times with a mixed action?
                              It isn't specified one way or another, but mixed actions weren't intended to allow you to make multiple attacks on the same target, which would bypass the rule that allows you to only purchase the Inflict Injury Stunt once per attack.

                              Can you use Forceful Martial Arts and Precise Martial Arts simultaneously?
                              Again, this isn't specified anywhere, and as rules, whatever. But using the fiction of what they are, I would say no. They are two different fighting styles, meaning they contain different maneuvers which give you the benefits listed. I can't imagine how you could use both simultaneously on the same attack, though you absolutely can switch between them from attack to attack depending on the circumstances.
