  • Thanks everybody, this has been invaluable. If anybody else has any ideas, I’d still love to hear them.

    I’m going to try to get Signs of Sorcery as soon as I finish the Core Book.

    This is a topic I’ve been wondering about. I really like the possibility of a Daedalus League campaign, but that seems like a topic that could get a sourcebook in of itself. I write that with the caveat that we haven't seen the upcoming Aeon 2E books.

  • That is also recommended in the Core. It’s a little confusing because it’s listed as a 2nd edition book on DriveThru but it was written well before the new edition was published.


    So off the top of my head I’m sketching a plan like this.

    1.) Get an idea of a location.
    2.) Figure a path the player(s) may like. Do a little Q&A to help me make that determination.
    3.) Plan and run an Awakening. This draws attention which can segue to recruitment.
    4.) Make characters if we haven’t already. Go over some basics.
    5.) Introduce a cool...

  • Well, it’s going to be a small, intimate group. Maybe 1 or 2 players. I guess...when I really think about it.. I’m imagining running the Awakening and segueing into recruitment. Sort of teach the setting and the background through in-game play rather than try to do an info dump. Because this is deeply textured game, and I say that as someone who is more familiar with Ascension. The players are used to working without too many rules, so that suggestion works. I wouldn’t want to pick their Path however. That seems like it needs to be a personal choice for character investment. Maybe I can...

  • Resources for first time MtA Storyteller?

    Hi there,

    I’m contemplating running a MtA chronicle. I love reading OP games, but I don’t get any chance to play them..so I’m thinking of just jumping in and running one.

    Are there any good resources for pulling together a chronicle? Especially for players that aren’t familiar with the game, let alone me. I did notice there are a couple 1st edition books like The Chronicler’s Guide, Secrets of the Ruined Temple, Boston Unvieled, and Reign of the Exarchs. I also noticed the new Signs of Sorcery book covers actual awakenings, and the Core recommends the Order...

  • No apologies necessary folks. Honestly. In fact, I’m grateful you didn’t take it as an attack. When I came back to the forums I was fully prepared to apologize. I am actually happy with the changes. As Mateus wrote, they added flexibility rather than take a lot of things away. I appreciate the positivity you have both demonstrated.

  • Agreed. The one unfortunate thing about crowdsourcing is an almost inevitable tug of war over what people want. To the degree that in the Aeon campaign I literally had people comment, “I don’t want what you want..” At the time it made me annoyed and just a little sad. Like someone was just going out of their way to cancel my feelings out. Saying “you can do what you want in your game” is almost meaningless, because EVERYBODY can do what they want in their own game. Even a developer has that option.

    Ian Watson recently wrote, “Aberrant is still going to be Aberrant.”...

  • Agreed on both counts, but especially the first. That said, this topic might return in the Secrets chapter. The Powers That Be haven’t spoiled much about that chapter and we may discover it hasn’t actually changed. Unless of course if it’s already been stated definitively and I’m not aware....

    Not necessarily (referring to thinking about it like Marvel mutants). I do think there is space to say “this change in my appearance is a feature, not a bug”, and not have it count against your Transcendence. Although.. I can see a player taking it too far. But yeah, there is some creative/design space there.

    Off-topic but related, I was thinking about D&D/Pathfinder ‘medusas’ a while back and contrasting it with the original gorgon myths. The Greeks depicted that transformation as a curse. A rather spiteful one at that. Yet, in your high fantasy rpg, it’s really a superpower....

    I wanted to echo the positive statements made about this edition of the game. I was concerned initially about the tone of the game changing. The tone of the first podcast put me off, because I felt an indictment (“dark bullshit”) was being made against the original. Yet, I’ve come to see, especially with the example of today’s update, that the changes have only been additive. I imagine it’s very hard to hear someone question your decisions when you can only show them your reasons in very small chunks, once a week.

    Thank you for persevering. You’ve made a believer out of me.

    Indeed, Dr. Blake could actually be prevented from turning into Thor (like Shazam). A little off-topic, but that reinforces how dormant it was....
