    replied to Evolved psiads.
    Well, I suppose that the advanced psions would be created by enhanced and uncapped Prometheus Chambers. so, I'd say it'd be something greater than current psiads, greater than the psions, and equal/lesser to the Doyen.

    The example Doyens do not have 7 in every mode. What's strange, since the doyen did make the chambers that got the proxies 7 psi and 7 in all their preferred modes - all at once. Either the doyen got much better in psionic and genetic theory after they botched their ascensions (and could make a chamber that made 7s in all modes in all aptitudes), or (less boringly),...

    Not really.

    When it's pay-forward, it's in their best interests to not remind the ST of their character's flaws. Having to constantly say that someone's roleplay is not appropriate tends to make things more adversarial.

    When it's active-reward, the players roleplay their flaws, and then they gently remind the ST of their character's flaws they are roleplaying, because it's in their best interests to do so. Rewarding for roleplay their flaws makes them happy to do it.

    At least, that's what's happened in my experience....

    Sure, the possibility of players overdoing is an issue. In the games I've seen it used, it's generally limited to once per session, so it shouldn't be an issue. But eh, as we can see in this thread, what's a fishmalk roleplay for one storyteller may not be not nearly damn enough for the next one.

    But I still think it's better to have players wanting to act their flaws than having the players cash up first and then conveniently forget the flaws. Being flaw police is not that fun for the storyteller....

    The idea is to make it like other games in which flaws do not give you build points, they grant you ways to give you extra experience when your character suffers because of the flaw, only applying it to inherent lupus and metis flaws. So, if a lupus in human form is persued by security because he took food and did not pay, he gets experience, and so on... It would reward good roleplay of the flaws, and incentivize players to put their characters in the 'bad' situations, instead of making them dread these situations.

    It could also apply to homids who would have difficulties dealing...

    I have been sincerely feeling that gnosis 1 is way too low for any type of play - even more so for theurge-types. And the experience/bp gap from gnosis 1 (homid) to 5 (lupus) is just too ridiculous.

    I am thinking that it'd be better to level gnosis at some level (say, 3) for all breeds and making the inconveniences from breeds (metis or lupus) give extra xp during play....
