    I have some questions about Boost

    If the variable power tag is applied, is there a limit on the number of times it can be activated? In other words, does the variable tag allow for activation applying to several attributes over several turns (or even the same turn with a mixed action?

    When applying the Extra Attributes how do you calculate the cost, particularly with relationship to the reduced cost power tag? It says that you multiply the Quantum point cost by the number of attributes affected. So if a nova has Boost with the Extra Attribute tag and the Reduced Cost...

  • That would be nice, but why not, it says "1+dot rating of the Quantum ability". I assume that Power Tags (generally, but particularly for Modular count toward dot rating...)

    On a related note...Can Nova/Core Tech have Modules? Particularly when considering shifting the paradigm, I am unsure of the answer.

  • The base is the 1
    then you have telecommunication for 1
    then you have Module (Mega-Edge) for 1
    sum=3. divide by 2 and round up to get rank 2.

    if the 1 is outside the parenthesis then it is just rank 2 no rounding.......

  • Thanks for the clarification I think it makes more sense that way. I haven't gotten to read the full final text yet (got it yesterday).

    I do think that the rank Module is 1(base)+(1 telecommunication + 1 Module)/2 = Rank 2.
    It could be that I am slightly misreading it and it is (1 base +1 telecommunication +1 Module)/2=Rank 1.5 which Rounds UP to Rank 2.

    also on that table, for the bullet dodging shield Durability should be Toughness I believe.

  • From Aberrant it is my understanding that you can trade one dot of edges for one dot of tags (or one dot of enhancement). Rank 1 and 2 items can have all their traits maxed out though. There would still be a maximum on the dots of edges that can be exchanged for tag bonuses or enhancements.

    On a related note, I think that the telecommunication module should be Rank 2: 1+(2/2)=2 because there are 2 ranks in Edges and the base of 1...Maybe I am reading that wrong.

    Finally, a related question, Mega-Attributes and Mega-Edges...Do they count as Quantum Abilities? They are...

  • Yeah, I thought it was a super-science question...If it is complex normal tech, then it would apply to all.

  • pretty sure that it applies to all applicable milestones. It may not apply to planning, or resource acquisition (that may be more Aberrant), but for most of the milestones it would likely apply.

  • I think it is suggested that (many of) these characters are somewhat a product of their society. If you change that, you should change the characters too (as they formed their viewpoints based on their current societal and scientific understanding, not that of today). Some of the villains in particular may just be plainly racist though. It is one of the issues with any old media, it was also a product of their current society, not ours. Many find some of those upsetting, but they do offer valuable insight as to how views have changed over the years.

  • I would do it with Quantum Agent like you were suggesting. At rank 3, you can get Quantum Agent *** with Independent, Intrinsic, and Ramp Up (-3). They would take 3 rounds to power up, but then just keep going...It gets better if you go to Rank 4-5...Just remember you will have to adjust some if you want a bunch (either Multiple Agents tag quite a few times or changing the paradigm to Nova-Tech.)

    That being said by the rules you may be able to just invent it as Nova-Tech...That is up to the Storyguide and you.

    You would probably have to invent one for each function though...

  • Firefly/Serenity awesome sci-fi series some lower tech in places - crew of mostly talents and a psion.
    Mandalorian and other Star Wars series/movies - many talents and a few psiads
    Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets - talents and just plain awesome space based movie
    Judge Dredd movies - Dredd definitely had a talent and a psiad as well as some cool tech
    Continuum- nice set of talents and tech (maybe a dark star nova mega-genius or two) and probably one superior (supersoldier with some cybernetic enhancements)
    bit of a different flavor, but Lord of the Rings...

  • There would probably be something like the Jedi Academy (or maybe a few based on specialties/philosophy). That is where I would start in my societal design. The "padawan" system would work very well with similarly specialized/focused psiads. The strong mode ones would of course be considered the best of the best in their field. It would also make sense to have a ruling council at least for the psiads (they may or may not rule/influence the larger society).

    There would probably be fairly strict rules governing the appropriate usage of psionic powers (particularly those that...
