    A few comments for the target of this system.
    Mundane: Action movies
    Inspired: Wuxia movies, Matrix (non Neo), Tokusatsu (maybe some kaijus even) and others
    Powered: Dragon Ball and others

    I am rewatching Naruto with my son (6yo, he wants to be a ninja when grow up, so I had to teach him about ninjas, at least the ones that are fun to watch), and... well, it don't fit Naruto, the entire Jutsu idea is much more about arcane magic than anything else. I may use the ideas from Ars Magica to build a proper jutsu system, with the clan jutsus (sharingan and others) as special...

    This scale multiplier is just wrong all the way, not the multiplier per se, but the way it is not defined and used in several situations, for example the number of followers in Aberrant. If it’s going to be used as a number you have to tel us the number, if not don’t use it as a number at all.
    My reference of what is a scale change is the times 5 that you get on the 6th dot in Psi powers, but it’s not exactly clear....

    Bunyip, I think we could manage to create a Errata/FAQ, on the same style as the Scion one. Maybe we can help to flesh it out and you try bring it to OPP to prepare it.

    There are too many things we don’t have access yet, like the Aexpansion, but we can probably bring a list of missing things in Aeon.

    Anyway, I like the way electromanipulation is described to Bioapps. Looks much like the way it works on creatures, but on the proper limitations of a bio app.

    You should play Sufficiently Advanced, it’s a game in a post singularity setting, where 2 AIs became self aware s and start communicating immediately with their future selves. The AIs are alone in the transtemporal existence so start help humanity to achieve this kind of consciousness. The name comes from Clarke reference “any sufficiently advanced science is not different form magic” (can’t remember the exact words).

    The technology rise to the point where you don’t describe your equipment, you describe just the 6 capabilities of it. A regular person has a value of 2, 3...

    The technokinesis would be useful only on non-attuned biotech, as the ones attuned to the Psion, interact direct with the mind with no need of display. Basically, any character attuned to a biocomp can tap, access and control it anyway, and Precision Understanding and Anima are designed to work on biotech without need to attuned to it and even if it’s attuned to other character.

    I liked you points, and I will go after your references, they look very interesting. I read many economical papers about it, and the end is unquestionable, different from the jobs that were given to machines before, that created positions related to the development and maintaining on a almost proportional rate, there will be not enough jobs for everyone, and people will have more enjoyable jobs (less repetitive and more creative) working with entertaining and technology development (other jobs will be there, but this 2 are the ones that will grow faster).

    My only complain about your...

  • It's possible that Whitney were a Psiad since beginning, I mean, he is described as a "Mesmerist with High Inspiration". Or maybe he evolved to a Psiad later, as Mesmerists don't usually have extended lifespan (as far as I recall).

    My bet on Superiors is on restricted Nova (much like a Psion have restrictions over Psiads). Of course it would follow the rules from Aeon, what means not a big use of scales and very limited powers. Seeing by another side, a Superior could have "Gifts" in place of Mega Attributes and Mega Edges, as they are already defined in Core......

  • If you look on the old files, they changed a lot the numbers to get to the atual ones. The 13s should be 8s with 2 or 3 enhancements. Colossal was on 17, Major was 13 and Moderate 11, but I may be wrong.

    Check Aeon page 33, Work in 2123 side box. It’s basically the result of incorporation of this kind of technology in long term.

    I have my opinion about it, the automation of all the production is the end of the Capitalism as we have today. The first thing that happen is the difference between riches and poors rises a lot, because the riches will be the ones that would take advantage of the system (they own the factories in the end), but once the number of unemployed people reach a certain level, the total demand will fall as a reduced number of people will be able to buy, reducing...

  • I like the way you are describing. It is like a half way activation, you can do some stuff but can't go as far as the ones that were activated all the way.

    It also allow some of the Stalwarts that survived until 2018 to became full novas, and even guys like Pax can possibly be kicked from Stalwarts to Novas in the process (maybe a small eruption). The same could happen later, with some Mesmerists becoming Psiads in 2104.

    The same way as other people Erupting, it could probably happen much after the event that started it, or even without a proper event but a rare condition,...

  • If a Stalwart is not capable of turning into a full nova and a Mesmerist is not capable of turning into a Psiad, its out of limits because they don't work on the same rules...

    BUT... if there is the possibility of evolution in the same energy usage, a Stalwart with Flame Conjuration is just the Quantum Attack power and a Mesmerist with Aetheric Vision is just Sense Spectrum EK base power.




    Stalwarts are different from Superiors, the same way a Psiad is different from a Psion, its a forced evolution, so I not counting here, they are locked on their...

  • Then the entire Awaiting Inspiration is not what is intended. Thank you!

    Still, a Stalwart could erupt to became a full Nova or once "erupted" to Stalwart you are locked on it? I guess they are locked by the way you are dealing with it....

  • Sure, that why I dont like the idea of Mesmerists and Stalwarts as different from the Psiads and Novas. The original explanation is... flawed to be honest. You can’t be handling Quantum and Psi at the same time, that’s the entire point of the corruption form Trinity, than you have Stalwarts that are handling both but a little more to the Quantum side, and Mesmerists a bit to the Psi side, and Daredevils right in the middle, and at same time they are not handling anything because there is no 3rd source. Of course it’s all 1e...

  • True, Mercer would be one of them, but they would lose some of the Talent capacities that are “teluric” by essence, probably Dramatic Editing.


    by the way, Excelsior... good name for Tier 3 Talent....

    As they didn’t lock the Backerskit yet, and for Scion they did about 6 weeks before shipping... I would say 2 months at least...

    PS: Scion was more, but it was because of the missing errata thing......

  • I would say that Mesmerists and Stalwarts are weaker than Psiads and Novas, but they have Dramatic Editing as an advantage that is enough to balance everything.

    I am really curious to see how the Superiors will work... I don’t think they are dramatic editors, but...

    If we follow the Awaiting Inspiration definitions (the e-book I mentioned), you have Stalwarts and Mesmerists handling Teluric Energy (a mix of Quantum and Noetic) with more emphasis to one side or the other, while Daredevils are just balance between them and a more subconscious control than the others....

  • Interesting, I always thought that The rules in Adventure were for Limiting the evolution. I know there is an E-book dealing with Mesmerists / Stalwarts as a intermediate of Psiads / Novas and Daredevils, but it was not an oficial book and it was causing a lot of discussion on the Eon (back then).

    Ok... I guess my reality in the Continuum is a bit more different than I used to think......

  • A Stalwart is a limited Quantum user and a Mesmerist is a limited Psi user. So you mean a Stalwart cannot train to became a Nova and a Mesmerist cannot train became a Psiad?

    Let’s have 3 Psi users, Psiad, Psion and Proxy. A psiad can never became a Psion because of the way you became a Psion, same way a Psion cannot became a Proxy, but a psiad can be as powerful as a Psion (and virtually, if not blocked on Aexpansion) as powerful as a Proxy. But a Psion can train and became a tier 3 Proxy level psion.

    What you saying is that a Mesmerist can never learn powers as a Psiad?...
