  • No, but you are not going to be on equal footing with the characters that are literally empowered by a god.

    You get get 4 dots for Birthrights at Hero-level character Creation without a divine patron (unless you take the Scale boost instead). This is discussed on page 171.

    Gods are not the only source of Relics. Look at the dwarves in Norse myth....

  • Non-Scion Denizens at Legend 1: you have only your single Calling from your Denizen path. You may be able to take Knacks from other Calling lists if that specific Denizen path has that feature, but your slots to do so are limited by your single Calling instead of 3.

    You may either take Birthright points or get an automatic Scale boost in one appropriate field.

    If you take Birthright points you may use a Relic to perform Marvels, but you do not have any innate Purviews like Scions, nor do you get Boons. Just Marvels.

    If you are a Scion Denizen - you get...

    Definitely for a Directive POV game where Utopia are the bad guys!

    Unfortunately I never got into the comic because Ennis’ sexual hang ups left such a bad taste in my mouth with Preacher. We get it Garth, queer sexuality is inherently humiliating and a great way to code and then punish your villains!

    But as the Preacher tv show is better than the comic in that regard, hopefully the Boys tv show won’t be too... Ennisy......

  • But if Novas existed, they obviously would since it’s not like governments are going to be able draft novas against their will. and the private sector will always be able to offer more perks. We don’t let private contractors control nukes in reality, but in reality the nukes can’t walk away on their own and decide they’d like to work for more money and luxuries and there’s nothing you can do about it.

    But more word count on patriotic Novas who do choose to serve their governments rather than Utopia to counter Elites would be a definite plus this edition!...

  • Building on that, what motivates them without the sterilization conspiracy?



    You say that like mercenary contractors and private security companies don’t actually exist...

    Rather than dormant, the dragons could be busy keeping the metaphysical balance of the elements through Creation, and don’t have time for geopolitics and concerns about individual human lives, even their Chosen.

    This option is particularly of use if you want to open the door for environmental cataclysm based on something happening to one or more of them.

  • The original Aberrant reflects being written in an era when international liberalism was in ascendence after the end of the Cold War, and that trend took the brunt of the game’s satire/skepticism/deconstruction. Today international liberalism is collapsing before a tide of “populist” neo-nationalism. How does the setting change to stay relevant in that context?

    I would suggest in a pre-firearms period game, splitting archery off of athletics to replace firearms rather than having athletics also cover what becomes THE primary ranged attack skill, but in a modern setting it makes sense where it is.

    I only think it’s misleading because people are carrying assumptions from how the term is used in other games. It is very much a specialty, it just plays out by bolstering other skills when they overlap with your specialty....

    They are significantly more useful than a single extra die in a skill you already have a high rating in (how specialties work in Stiryteller games that most of us are implicitly comparing this too). The ability to bolster rolls you’re weaker in because of a connection to your specialty field is A LOT more versatile and helpful!...

    An attack by a pack of angry dogs is easily fatal at Origin level. If you’re thinking of that as an annoyance, you’re thinking in higher level play terms, while that’s in the Origin book for a reason.

    replied to Sorcery?
    Just to keep our terms accurate: sorcery. “Magic” is a broader term that includes the PSPs primarily and pretty much any supernatural power combined with the right Motif more generally. Sorcery is stealing divine power to weave Marvels....

    They might be waiting till after God so they can do the whole power-curve in one book (Baba Yaga being an example of a Sorcerer who reached the God end of the powerscale)

    replied to Sorcery?
    NPC Sorcery is covered by the Flair in Origins + Purviews in Hero.

    Player character “Sorcery” (as opposed to general Scion ritual “magic” which is covered by PSPs and other Purviews combined with Pantheon Motifs) was cut specifically because it was shaping up viable enough to be a full compelling character type and it needed more in-depth coverage than it could be given here. Expect it’s own supplement somewhere down the line. Basically Sorcery in this context refers to TAKING power from the gods without being Chosen or having a birth-claim.

    So Mal’akhim (and the Legio) first. Novus Ordo Seclorum and my American Gods homage-setting will probably have to wait until after Masks of the Mythos comes out with its Iron-level mechanics.

    I assume no need to go into things already referenced in Origin and Hero like American Gods, Wicked & Divine, and Rick Riordan stuff?

    Yeah, I was going to say how Solars have Charms specifically for brawling with creatures who epically out-size them. And Lunars can go Legendary size themselves (no upper limit is defined, the rules don’t differentiate between t-rex size and Godzilla size, if you want to attach more indomitable rules to the latter than normal Legendary Size, you’ll probably want to make a Lunar take an additional upgrade Charm).

    Dragon-Blooded are going to need to be the most Warstrider reliant - though I think there’s room thematically for a War Charm that specifically aides DBs using teamwork...
