  • Have you imagined the idea of a Nova (or group of novas) actually working this out? Like that episode of SG1 that Daniel thinks he got some powers but it was actually an ancient doing what he wanted to do.

    Imagine a very powerful Novas Q8 or so, that is bored and start messing with people, reading their minds/desires and doing what they want as if it was their powers.

    Definitely a plot twist...

    They were naturally Psionics, but they removed this from their DNA to avoid becoming a hive mind (as a part of their society did).

    But yes, that is exactly the point. If they have gravity (and by the arts I would say yes), it can be caused by the constant acceleration (what should make their ships 70km tall, not long) or by an artificial gravity device (similar to Gravcrystals).

    As I see, once it’s core tech / advanced super science, it stops being powered by quantum/psi and start to be part of the way Reality works. It still use quantum or psi, but it’s not properly...

    replied to New Community Content: Scion Pride!
    I think Scion is the perfect game for that. First because it’s based on REAL myths, and not on “sexy vampires that don’t really have pleasure in sex”. For centuries there was no such thing as homosexual or heterosexual, it’s just what it is, people having fun and doing what makes them happy with people that they loved (for a life or for a brief moment), and it is real history.

    Congratulation on the fantastic idea.

    replied to Hardtech FTL?
    Makes sense, but generated a few questions not related to FTL drives.

    Is Hyperfusion and Gravcrystals considered Based on Quantum powers? Both were invented by novas, and sure it’s not Natural, but after some time it just became “regular” (common and nobody think it’s corrupted, as they think about other novatech).

    Also, the Coalition ship has artificial gravity (I suppose), is it made with Gravcrystals or is it a complete different tech, and is it considered based on quantum powers even without “novas” in their races?...

    Novas created Nova and Q tech using Warp, that is basically a Hyperdrive, as it takes time to travel and don’t use real space to travel.

    Warp Speed (like StarTrek Warp) have no equivalent in Nova powers, as they still obey at this basic law of physics, but it’s still FTL travel.

    I agree with you. I know there are options and all, but much of what Mythos represent is terror and insanity if what’s beyond possible for the characters.
    If you limit to cultists and maybe sorcerers (hero level) it still makes sense as their power is far beyond (scales above) your reach and even your little power would drive you insane. It is not what Scion was made for, I mean, your character is locked to legend in all that is not Skills and Attributes, knacks, purview, birthrights (mainly when dealing with Origin).

    Yet, I like the concept, I will buy it (back it if KS happens)...

    I would make them crazy mantles of the respective gods. I don’t know how the gods can switch mantles, but if they work as multiple personalities, they could be a mechanism of defense against the alien minds or something similar.

    Nodens, if I my memory don’t fail, is a hunter of old ones, with those weird hounds working for him. It sounds like a god that went crazy on revenge or just to show how powerful he is.

    I edited on my first post.

    but basically you have that number of tags in addition to any tag you gain from edges.
    Also, Quality and Maneuverable are useless as they are replaced by the enhancement of the Super Science....

    Well, I got my answer in Discord, and I kind of have my theory on your answers.

    Let’s call the Edge dots by a single letter (A for 1, B for 2, etc), so it becomes a quicker (and I don’t need to check the book), also let’s ignore the tags, they should be always equal to the rank.
    Rank 1 and 2 are straightforward, 2e+A and 3e+B.
    Rank 3 must be or good in enhancements or in edges, so you have 2 options, 4e+A or 2e+C, but also there is a intermediary (combination) 3e+B (like a rank 2, but with an extra tag).
    Rank 4 follows the same idea, a optimal Enhancement and...

    Crafting Super Tech

    I am the Storyguide of a Mission Impossible style TC. My players are going to get their hands on a special weapon, not big deal, just have a few more tags that was expected and maybe a gift, not sure yet. But I want to make sure the weapon makes sense in the rules.

    While I understand how to do all the stuff for creating a super science one doubt came to my mind, there is one thing that makes little sense, the Maximum Bonus Tags.

    Lets say I want to build a Laser canon with 7 tags (Ranged: Medium 1, Mounted, Tactical Sight 1, Incendiary 2, Heavy 1, I didn’t add quality...

  • The idea of Prime is a bit annoying but there is always that group that call themselves as the ones from Prime.

    I like your ideas... Quantum Powered Dalek Stormtroopers fighting Time Lord Talents and Psionic Jedi

    Small changes in the text and also a change in the cost of granting scale on attributes (from 3 to 8 successes, as it has a enormous impact).

    Notice that you can spend Psi to grant free successes on the activating roll.

  • Just a few rules to set the base and you can run Star Trek using TC rules easily.
    If you use Superiors instead of Novas, you can have the Eugenic War taking place in place of Aberrant War.
    The great inventors (Cochrane included) could be Talents that can create Inspired tech based on Nova Powers (warp drive for example).
    Psiads may be common among other races (Vulcans and Betazoids, for example) usually running around one or 2 modes.

    replied to Question on Virtues.
    Not exactly.

    You don’t have a “value” for for Virtues, it works like a clock, one mark (or pointer) that move from one side to the other, along the 5 positions. If it is pointed to one of the extremes you are virtuous to that virtue and gain 1 extra die for every momentum used, basically 1 momentum generates 2 dice, 2 momentum generates 4 dice, etc.

    Post 34, 35 and 36 on the link below.

    replied to Psionic Powers and Scale
    I made it with a simple idea, not going beyond 3 in any Enhancement or Soft Armor.
    My reference was 1 scale = 3 enhancements, because it can be pretty powerful. Even if limited to granting 2 enhancements, scale can be used to be overwhelmeing against weaklings (including multiple injuries with a single attack) and because it can be used to fight larger and more powerful adversaries.
    in the end the power in the hand of a proxy level character is pretty strong, but yet “kind of” the same level as before.

    Psionic Powers and Scale

    Psions and Scale
    Psions are capable of some limited scale increase in their deeds, as long they can already do things beyond human capacities.
    Several powers, particularly the powers dealing with speed and some times size, already grant access to a certain degree of scale, and those powers are not affected by this set of rules.

    The 6-dot Powers and Stacking Scale
    Any scale gained thru the methods described bellow can stack with the gain of scale granted by the 6 dots powers. This is also the only way to grant scale higher than described below in Attributes, Durability...
