  • So, page 126, "All armor provides
    one point of Soft armor by default."

    and then the Soft Armor Tag-
    "Soft armor increases the Difficulty of the Inflict
    Damage Stunt by 1."

    So, either the tag increases the Default of 1, or the first tag doesn't actually do anything. If you have the tag "Soft 1" you have a value of Soft 2. If you have "Soft 2", you have a value of Soft 3.



    Aha! That's what I get for not reading my emails. I just went straight to the link I was redirected to for download....

    Oh, most definitely. I finally watched the last half of The Mandalorian earlier this week, and that got the gears turning on how you could get to that point with Æon.

    The individual Prometheus Chambers didn't quite do it for me for Space Opera, and just using Psiads, although cool, didn't quite bring the flavor I wanted, so I thought about there being three main types of Chambers that borrowed from the old Psiad rules, plus a rare/fabled fourth.

    Body (Biokinetic/Vitakinetic)
    Mind (Telepathy/Clairvoyance)
    Energy (Psychokinetics/Electrokinetics)
    And then...

  • Well, Origin, Role, and Society are usually pretty sequential.

    You can pretty easily expand out from Æon out to space opera, and there's a teased/planned supplement way down the line that goes to do that.

    You can take out psi pretty easily without terribly too much issue, except for it currently being the gateway to interstellar travel. But, pick your personal favorite FTL methods and layer it over. Or, keep Teleporters as a thing that need Leviathan ships, kinda like Navigators from Dune/40k.

  • Is there a link for feedback? I'm idling away some downtime at work, and drivethru is blocked.

    The armors only list the soft values granted by tags, but all armor has 1 soft before tags increase it. Although, it might just be listing out the tag values, but I just wanted to provide the feedback to give someone a chance to verify.

    edit: Also to add for anyone perusing this thread that hasn't bought it, don't let this minor tidbit deter you, it's a really cool book. The characters are well written and generated otherwise. Just seems like a usability thing for pregen character...

    Sorry about the 1e confusion.

    Ian confirmed over on RPG.net that they are in fact eximorph, so in the same vein as Nova/Aberrants, but how or if that should read to the various Psi senses seems to be the question.

    The word Quantum doesn't even appear in the chapter at all. Back in 1e Superiors were low Q capped Novas, but they took a different direction this time.

    "In 2065, after years of research and failures, Kayoko
    Nakamura successfully tested a proprietary blend
    of retroviruses, neurotransmitter inhibitors, and
    radiation exposure that rewrote the genetic code to
    remove nova and psion potential by transforming
    subjects into a new type of Inspired human."

    Huh, I can't immediately find how they are supposed to appear to various Psi-senses. It would kinda run counter to the fiction if a large portion of psions could easily pick up on their unique nature.

    I think I found my Æon study subject for the day.

    edit:
    So from my read of things-

    The Sight wouldn't immediately reveal a Superior. Although it isn't stated outright, I believe they still technically have Psi 1, like Talents and Baselines do, since they can still use Biotech. The sight also doesn't reveal the Quantum nature of an individual unless they...

  • Especially if you are going to be working through chargen after the fact with them, maybe make the characters yourself via standard character creation ahead of time, this way you'll be familiar with some of the idiosyncrasies of the process.

  • You might want to consider working through some of the many sources of Enhancement on Psi powers, and work out where switching to Scale might be a good idea. Bunyip has commented before that the amount of enhancement that Psions get was intentional, and if it was going to be capped there would need to be adjustments.

    As is, it is very easy to get very high enhancement without min maxing. A three dot thermokinetic with Strong Mode has +6 enhancement (3 from the power itself, 1 from having a mode rating higher than the power, and 2 from strong mode). This is before linking up with any...

  • As the grandchild of American Aberrant war refugees, the holovids of La Blassure really got to James. So instead of going into some research program after completing their second Phd, they signed up with the Æsculapians, and tested positive for latency. When you're an Æsc going to do humanitarian work in a QFZ, you go VK, even if you aren't a medical doctor.

  • I'll admit, It could be better spelled out, and I think a way it is phrased over in Scion makes it more explicit.

    You can also look to the example characters in the Ready Made Character supplement that just released, and see that they have modest equipment selections regardless of Wealth....

  • A Terat could probably do the trick.

    That said, if you are looking to humble them, it could also be a situation where they aren't necessarily incapacitated, but are occupied and unable to save someone else. For all their power they can't protect their loved ones kinda thing. I only recommend this if it is a story beat they are looking for, because it could be a bit of a dick move otherwise.

  • That's part of the "Access" portion of your paths. You are reasonably equipped for your job. It is mentioned in the Path portion of Character Creation, and on page 40.

    Alternatively you can handle it through personal Wealth, or the Patron Edge. Artifact is also good if you want some super science gear....

  • Getting back to 2018 celebrities. I'm gonna go with Cardi B erupting as a Mega+Int/Technomancer. Her already genius social media presence explodes as she is followed by a fleet of drones, establishing something akin to Ruby Rod's traveling talk show from Fifth Element.

    As much as I loved early Into the Badlands, I don't know how I didn't think of it as TC inspiration until now. Although I roll my dark eyes at a little bit of the last season, it is still a fun time.

    Really raises the question though, how would you model "The Gift" in TC? Superiors with a Condition, or two, on when they can use their powers? They aren't full on Novas, so like the Superior version of Dormancy almost....

    This sounds like the book with Alien building mechanics that John was teasing over on rpg.net. HYPE!
