    So many good memories about Eureka and the other SciFi Chanel series... Eureka fits so nice on TC it should be part of the setting, Eureka, the city of Talents? Their super science is extremely advanced, but not powers anyway, it’s just a few decades ahead of the prototypes of the rest of the world...

    SG would not fit nicely to Trinity Continuum, but would be fun to use some of the concepts and aliens, mainly the Ancients and possible the SGs. The Ancients fit perfectly in the idea of “after 10k years of space they rise above matter”, and the SG working as transport between...

    That s a good explanation, but he would have to be over a hundred years old to be born just after the event. Not impossible for Novas/Psiads...

    Edit: ok, he could be a descendent if the family...

  • True, probably what happened to Pax and Scripture. Don’t know if it would be possible to cross the limit without a “booster”, like Hammersmith or Mal accidents (Mal had Hammersmith, the rest had Mal). Let’s say the Greek gods were novas, they would probably be on Stalwart levels, and possibly having some Supertech to throw lightings or never miss a shot. Probably the best way to handle ancient gods and their birthrights (using Trinity standard, not Scion, obviously)....

    Question about increased Stamina and injury conditions.

    If you raise your Stamina to 3 or 5, you get a new Injury box, same way as if it was a natural value of Stamina. Correct?

    If the effect end before the injury heals, what happen to the injury? It just disappear or get worsen?

    Second question, if you increase Stamina to 7, it makes sense to get one more injury condition (3, 5, 7, I would put it as a Maimed condition just to follow same pattern). Is there any comment about it? I didn’t find heifer on book or forums.

  • China is not North Korea, it’s not sealed, it’s not impossible to visit or to move there, but it’s closed enough to be hard to move in. It’s hard to find foreigners there, at least much more difficult than finding Chinese people elsewhere. Their culture is quite different and hard to adapt if you are used to the western ways. Chinese companies would pay novas a lot of money to work there, but the comfort for a Nova living on US would be greater than living on China....

  • I understand what you mean, and I agree he didn’t just make them more likely to appear, he also made them more powerful by the time they erupted. But I don’t think he did plan to create a Increasing population of novas or erupt the entire world, as I think he was not the god he seams to be when he showed up later. To be honest, I don’t think we had the entire effect on mind when it exploded, he was probably testing, as did Hammersmith during the accident, and needed a greater model to test his theory.

    The same event that caused the novas to erupt on high power, probably raised...

  • Libya, if I am not wrong is a mortal/scion, granddaughter of Zeus (like half of the kings in myths). Probably Poseidon turned her into Demigod so she could live with him in the bottom of the see, and they had 2 sons that are somehow important as their grand(...)grandsons are Perseus and Dionizus. Otherwise, there is not much about Libya.

    You don’t need to name the guys, they are a mix of propaganda and urban legends, that would be interesting. A big slave capable of putting train rail faster than the train can run over it, a soldier that defended a fortress against Indians by himself for a week, things like this are not possible for a regular person but were told to people, somehow they were done by a Scions and this helped him to raise their legends and ascend to godhood.

  • Mal Do have some power over novas powers, not on creating, only on turning on and of, as he did to Pax. But Novas are a natural apparition, their level of power is related to the level of Quantum Flux on the environment, more quantum more eruptions and more power for the novas erupted, same for corruption, more corruption more corrupted novas erupted and more corruption on eruption.

    What Mal did on Galetea was raise the level of Quantum flux on earth to make sure Novas would erupt easier and more powerful, once it started the novas powers powers up one the next eruption and so on....

  • Ok I give up... the rules as written must be taken to extreme to be used as Wuxia, you can run in the lake, not run other the water, and you can balance on br stop of a chair, not a leaf. The capacity of scaling up actions doesn’t mean you can outsmart a genius, outrun a horse or seduce an entire theatre. It means if you are on a extraordinary situation, it may be possible to break a rule to keep you in advantage. Also Dramatic Editing is not about having and knowing all you may need to win an adversary, it’s about to not die or at least be prepared for a reasonable situation you didn’t...

    I started by considering they exist later and than they must have appeared sometime in the middle... but you can ignore the American pantheon, and go straight to the arrival of the European and later African and Asian pantheons in America....

  • Oh man, so much to read, so many references, I got a little lost, so let’s beggin by Talents.

    Talents are, as I understand, regular humans exposed to Flux, all but one of the “eruptions” of talents are related to events and not birth (one is you were not supposed to be born, but you did). A son of a Talent is a Talent in potential as all the other humans.

    Psiads and Novas are a weird situation, as there are two main theories around them.
    The first one is a person is born with a gene that say if can became superhuman, and it is unlocked by psi or by quantum....

  • It has been years since a positive and democratic vision of Humanity’s future has been part of popular culture. I think since Strar Treck there is no one popular item that is really positive, even the last Star Treck séries and movies are quite negative compared to TOS.

    The view of the population from the government has changed the last decade and all the popularisation of the conspiration theories helps a lot this effect. There is also a right wing tendency on the world for a few years, after a quite long left wing position mainly in Europe and South America, that brings this...

  • True, USA had lots of novas that where there for money, not fighting wars like in Africa, but living there. They probably had the largest nova population in the world, a few places could have a larger nova/baseline balance, but as USA had a large population, large area and lots of money to pay.

    China is more closed than any other country (except North Korea), so I guess many Chinese novas left and not many foreigners got in.
    India and Indonesia have huge populations but are fairly poor and would not attract novas as USA and would repel many of their own novas for religious if...

    On 1e, there was a real difference between gods and titans, and following that rules Morgoth is not a Titan, but the most powerful god (supposing the gods are limited to the Valar), as he have the same origin.

    I am not a Tolkien expert, actually I know little more than what is told on LotR, but as Insee, Valar are Gods, Maiar Demigods and some of the free people (Elves, Ents and a few Giants, not sure) are natural Heroes. Humans (and others) can ascend to heroic and Demigos stats, as well as Elves (and others) can ascend to demigods (Galadriel), but it’s impossible to became much...

    I must agree, it’s GOLD material for Onyx Path and great ideas for us to play.

    I would add one multi-pantheon in the colonisation of America, with the birth of the American Gods (Columbia, Uncle Sam, etc) and the lost of land by the Manitou. I would bring Scions of several gods to became the American gods and maybe interact with them while they ascend to godhood. Some scions would became the Loa, others would incorporate to American pantheon, or form a pantheon for themselves... it would be fun to follow The Baron while he ascend in the carebean, or Columbia fighting on the independence...

    When I read Hinder description the scene of the fiction comes to mind (in 4 minutes they will be find). Makes sense your description of life risk, but at same time the description includes social danger “She will also know if she is about to make an immedi- ate serious social blunder — asking after a person’s partner who has recently died — or is in danger from mental tasks, such as taking the winning move in a game that will cause the opponent to shoot her in a sudden fit of rage.” So, disarming and being tackled are good sources of danger.

    Honestly, Alertness is too powerful...
