  • I look forward to seeing your take. Is there a reason you are avoiding the word “Primordial” for YHWH?

    Yeah it does make sense that needs to be the case in setting for Superiors to be the degree of secret they are, presented as exceptional baselines enhanced by cybernetics.

    Inspired is a very general term in the setting, that historically refers to Mesmerists and Stalwarts as well as Talents.

    Superiors are meant to be implied to be derived from the same nature as Stalwarts, so Proto-Novas.

    It was in unofficial 1e material that Superiors were Daredevils. That isn’t true in 2e because of the broader nature of Talents naturally occurring at all times. Instead their an intentional harnessing of the super-human potential of Novas, without the uncontrolled aspects....

  • Yeah, I’m having a little “the Wu Lung joined the Akashics” flashbacks (though that was worse because they didn’t even thematically overlap, their link was just ethnic).

    I don’t agree with it either, I was just saying it could be a nice way to address that in a way that also expands playability, since if that’s a concern people have it’s always a plus if more audience demands are met without sacrificing any creative vision or other interests of the gameline....

  • I thought they confirmed Garool was not Charon’s Shadow, but had eatten and was possibly being directed by it?

  • You’re assuming Charon overpowered Garool through super mighty combat powers, and not because of his connection to that voice coming from inside Garool’s maw. Much more interesting if he exploited a secret weakness tied to his own Shadow but requiring Self Sacrifice than he rolled a huge bunch of dice because of his special combat moves....

  • Yeah Charon and the Jade Emperor are both awe inspiring for their accomplishments, and thanks to their positions of power they wield amazing Artifacts and Relics (most notably in the Emperor’s case, the Immortal Guard), and possess unique Arcanoi Arts via millennia of learning and study. I can’t think of any feat that requires power beyond what 1-5 Arcanoi are capable of though.

    Malfeans are something else entirely and aren’t using player character rules. I’m open to seeing their powers statted for npc purposes, but it’s not relevant to the issue of player character Arcanoi....

    Which implies a sequel setting of Argent in the 60s as the Novas go more cosmic and absurdist on the power scale.

    This could actually be the timeline where Michael succeeded in the fight he and Max had in the 40s and he sets off N-Day early (in my head it’s via the Trinity test, because that’s too elegant and on the nose not to use)....

    Fair. I was trying to include a system encouragement for not filling all your language slots if it didn’t fit your concept to do so. After all plenty of higher-Academics-rating Americans can still only speak English.

    But I figure Scions tend to pick up at least one additional language beyond their first from their Pantheon Path, more often then not....

  • That problem boils down to “they haven’t statted the Deathlords”, not anything having to do with “nerfing” Arcanos, or ratings over 6 being a thing that should exist.

    I certainly agree that big NPCs that PCs should be able to shank should have stats....

    If a hard rule is needed: barring Knack or other power, characters can speak a maximum of Intellect + the higher of Academics or Culture languages. Which ones must be justified by their Paths. These may retroactively determined in game as needed.

    Choosing to know fewer languages than your stats allow counts as a Condition for the purpose of generating Momentum if it comes up as a hinderance in game.

  • Yeah, Wraith has literally never been about playing an “empowered badass”. I like kewl powerz as much as the next guy, but interesting is way more important than raw force, and between the addition of Initiate Arts, balancing the different Arcanoi WITH EACH OTHER (not with characters in other games who don’t even exist on the same level of reality as Wraiths), and really neat powers like Haunter spatial labyrinths, W20 has some of the most interesting takes on Arcanoi in the game’s history.

    If the Deathlords have greater raw power than other Wraiths (as opposed to some unique...

    Yeah, and I much rather have a Storyguide frustrated that their plans to foil the players was derailed by a character speaking the language in question, then players frustrated they spent their language slots on stuff that never came up by an asshole Storyguide specifically excluded the languages they picked....

    I am absolutely arguing for players getting to define stuff in-game when it becomes relevant, provided it fits their Paths. It is a far better option than players wasting a finite character creation resource on something that never comes up in game....

    That’s the whole reason we have a “Continuum” instead of one set Timeline....

    I’m surprised they’re moving it up to the 30s. You’d think the Great Depression and rise of fascism would detract from the “Hope” themes. But maybe they’re going darker to emphasize the NEED for Hope the PCs represent.

    I guess the repeated complaints by some that the TC core lacks enough word count on compelling antagonists was listened to.

    And crap, they’re not allowing new era it looks like, I really hope they budge on that since it’s kind of the point of the Continuum.
