    Will we see any special mechanics for mortal Martial Artists in the future, or do they have to invest in the same merit as Solars for none of the benefits that merit cost is supposed to be balancing? (the synchronization between different style Charms, the ability to spend Solar XP on MA Charms, etc)

    So to double check here - characters are either Resonant, Normal, or Dissonant with a given magical material

    Solars are Resonant with everything

    Lunars are Resonant with Moonsilver, and Normal with everything else

    Sidereals are Resonant with Starmetal, and Dissonant with everything else

    Dragon-Blooded are Resonant with Jade, and Dissonant with everything else

    Abyssals are Resonant with Soulsteel, and Normal with everything else

    Liminals are Normal with Soulsteel, and Dissonant with everything else

    Getimians...

    None of those entities use force to enforce their judicial edicts (in the modern norm for organized religions anyway). Conciliums do. They don't tax you for existing in a territory normally, but you are expected to obey their laws in their territory regardless of whether you've opted in or not....

  • May first choice for WWI would still be Werewolf, given the entirely new choirs of horrific spirits of fully industrialized warfare wrecking havoc.

    My second choice (and first choice for crossover) would have to be Geist, and pull the Horsemen as literal entities out and afield....

  • My inclination for pre-movable-type societies is use illiterate as the default, make literacy a 1 point merit, and give it for free if they buy academics over 1 dot (unless it's a society without writing whose lore is entirely oral). Post-movable-type, literacy is the default, illiteracy is a flaw.

  • I wouldn't use Literate as a Merit and Illiterate as a Flaw at the same time. Pick one for your baseline for player characters. If the baseline is literacy, than illiteracy is a flaw. If the baseline is illiteracy, than literacy is a Merit.

    If you want to get really fiddly with it though, you could have players pick one and it's neither a Merit or flaw, but illiteracy comes with bonuses to oral recollection that don't apply if you're literate.

  • Is it discussed what the Refinements of Cobalt and Phosophorus used to be called before 1735 and 1669 respectively?

  • There's something deeper in tonal difference between Aberrant and the other games. Part of it is "ESB"-effect, where middle chapters are structurally going to be down notes, but I think someone's political philosophy was in play as well. Aeon/Trinity had a New Deal theme of people working together to build a better world. Aberrant strongly suggests that type of "Utopianism" is not to be trusted, and it's individual freedom from collective institutions that needs to be paramount. I'm not saying the writers were full on pro-Teragen, it's supremacism was a negative. But there...

    replied to Which New Pantheons do you want?
    Depends what you mean by "cavemen". If you're imagining the media image of humans grunting, afraid of rain and their own shadows, and otherwise behaving little differently from animals - pre-cognitively-modern humans probably didn't worship anything. Cognitively modern-humans (appearing approximately 40-50 thousand years ago) probably had animistic beliefs similar to those seen in most later hunter-gatherer societies through history.

    It's possible one could designate that the Titans arising separately from the Primordials corresponds to the rise of cognitively-modern humans...

    Micky Mouse was 1928. That is and will remain the cut off line year indefinitely for intellectual properties entering public domain as long as Disney has any power to flex in Washington. If it's younger than Mickey Mouse don't count on its copyright ever expiring....

    I agree it makes sense for the character - it's just not something that fills me with excitement for representation, so isn't what I'd be looking for from Disney's FIRST canonical gay character....

    I'd be fine with that, but it would be very difficult to communicate on screen as a secondary-character relationship, hence leaning toward the simplicity of monogamy.

    I want awesome poly rep, but it requires more screen time and attention to get right....

  • I can't comment on this edition, but in the previous edition Xavier, Jean, and Emma would probably be better represented as Novas than Psions, who are on a comparatively lower power level and have "artificial enhancement" as a central thematic feel....
