    I kind of have the idea of trying to map the Aptitudes of Aeon to the psychic disciplines of Warhammer 40k for no reason other than a part of me thinks it would be cool. hehe

      I was reading Distant Worlds for the errata I pointed, and just want to add a houserule to the Qin character creation.

      Instead of the Qin physique condition, I would just point that Qin are one scale below humans when dealing with Size, Might and Durability. The biosuits allow the qin to increase it scale to 1 while using it.

      I know it’s not a big deal, but I don’t like the way it is written, first because it sounds like you roll 3 dice less, what is not the way Storypath deal usually, but it also put the Qin in a weird condition when dealing with other qin and both are out of Biosuits, as both roll 3 less dice, while they are both competing in the same scale, and so should ignore the scale.

      Dont get me wrong, I like the book and the entire Qin character description, I just think this detail could explore a rule that is well established instead of creating a new rule.

      Edit: Small addendum on Qin speed, I don’t know human speed, it was never told and probably will never be, so I guess Qin need to sprint to move a range band in a round in ground, but moves at scale 1 speed when swimming. Humans can sprint for 2 range bands in a round and when swimming need to sprint to move a single range band (the swimming part is more a head cannon).

        Ya I noticed the -3 dice right away and I was like what? I also pointed of the negative mod on handling and Bunyip pointed me back to the Trinity book using a negative mod on handling as well.

        Things that make you go hmmm

          With Handling it makes sense - Handling is usually what you add as Enhancement, but if it’s increased Difficulty just mark it as negative Enhancement to prevent adding rarely used columns to the table.

          I think Mateus’ use of Scale 0 for Qin out of biosuits is an elegant use of the system.

            Just want to thank Eddy and all the Devs for the update on Aberrant situation. It was a short but extremely happy one. Thanks!

            It’s good to get good news, even short ones, with this quarantine going forever.

              So my random idea. I want to expunge the post-apocalyptic wasteland stuff from the setting. I kind of feel like the game mixes too many genres and that is the one I would get rid of. But I think I would do it by just advancing the game 50 years in to the future and just say most of it got cleaned up. So its still part of the history but it isn't the current state of the world.

              Honestly it just bugs me that my two favorite places, the US and France are total shit holes in this game. lol.

                How do you imagine that France and the US would change? I'm asking because there is a chance that at least one of my players might be interested in saving France in our Chronicle.

                  Honestly hadn't given it a whole lot of thought, since I'm not currently planing a game. But assuming that a way is found to purge and clean the wastelands of corruption, both France and the FSA are sitting on top of a whole bunch of undeveloped public land that they can give away or sell to foreign and domestic companies and developers. France specifically would be much more rural and spread out. Because of this I could imagine an era of African colonialism in France.

                  With the threat of the wastelands and abberants gone you might even see a political shift, revolution or civil war in the FSA, followed by an 1889 style land rush.

                    There is a forum post named something like "Why such a boring future USA" where people were discussing it for a while. Its long and redundant in many ways, but there are a great variety of ideas for that question.

                      Boring is an apt descriptor. Thanks for the thread recommendation.

                          I do admittedly feel like Aeon doesn’t really do post apocalyptic sci-fi to the extent it wants to with everything else, because if people can leave the wasteland and go somewhere else, it’s not really the same thing. It’s why I’d like to eventually see (or write if they open up the Nexus to support new settings) a continuum era where China went through with the ultimatum and now the world is Fallout/Mad Maxified.

                            I mean... to the extent that all fascist states are “boring” I guess. The point is to be a setting for resistance and subversion. I do hope when we get more details in Terra Firma that less focus is put on military rule, and more on the power of the metacorps with privatized total governance, as it’s a less frequently explored form of totalitarianism, and more socially relevant to the 2020 US.

                              I am playing on the idea of using TC characters on the DR setting. I don’t plan to writing anything on that, but doing so seams easy (at least rules wise).

                                It’s not my post, and the Boring is more related to the view of the original Poster pointing its cliche.
