  • You can go “kind of life path”, just pick a path in a order:

    You pick your Origin path, add the skills and edges related to it.
    Pick a second path (any of the two remaining), add the skills and edges from that.
    repeat for the last one.
    you can latter add the remaining skills and edges.

    Ars Magica, Battle Tech, Gurps and others have lots of “dots”, each dot worthing a minimum effort in life, so each year can grant hundreds of worthless changes that stack until becoming useful.

    Storypath is different, there is a very limited number...

  • I didn’t think too much before answer, but you are right, Canaan was latter occupied by Hebrew, but it was not monotheist back them.

    As a little off question, Where the Hittites that occupied that region first hand? Are Canaanites a sub group of Hitittes? Where and when exactly the Hitittes were?...

  • Indeed, the “inactive” nature of YHWH makes him a primordial. You can go deeper and say YHWH is the primordial of the universe, as “wherever you are, he is there”.

    On Lucifer as a Titan, I think he was a archangel that was sent away for bad behavior (acting as a god instead of a messenger. Not different from lol being sent to the prisional with no walls or Poseidon being turned into a human for disrespecting Zeus

    replied to They Came From Beneath The Sea!
    I had the proper time to start reading, didn’t finish, didn’t read the fiction, went to the rules (cause I love the rules). Here is my impressions:

    The use of Archetypes is interesting in general and GREAT for the theme, with all the niches characters must fit into and that. It also give much more space for one shots and campaigns around particular places (small towns) or exploration (of the sea and its perils).

    The division of the paths as Archetype, Origin and Ambition is a bit odd in my view. I can’t explain, but it seams they are all overlapping a bit, like...

  • This lunch break I had the time to read Endless Frontiers.

    Really good book! It add depth to the starships beyond mere combat. We can now play a game centered on a ship and it’s crew, like Serenity or BSG and have real difference between your ship and the next one in the same cathegory.

    Indeed there is already a list of conditions for Trinity in the Nexus. I didn’t buy it yet, but probably going to work for Scion too.

    They do but not externally. They control their bodies with their quantum manipulation. But it emit almost no energy, at least detectable by a Psion. A nova with quantum sense and enough power probably can detect it....

    I agree with you in most cases.

    The sight is not as capable as any of the other senses on their areas, so I guess they need to know a superior as a superior to identify other superiors, or at least know a low powered Nova with no transcendence to understand the nature of a superior.

    Subwuantum sense would be the final key to properly identify a Superior as it can sense the existence of the power not just the use of it. But still they would need to understand what a superior is to diferentiate it from a “latent nova” or undefined sub-aberrant.

    I would put on same level as Sub-Aberrant but different... maybe the most powerful Superiors would be closer to a Divergent....

    The Sight probably indicates as very low powered Nova or a “latent” Nova. But only to those that don’t see Quantum as Corruption. If they can’t separate Corruption from Quantum they will not understand what the Superior is, only that it’s different from any other thing.

    For Subquantum Sense I would guess they will have a similar feeling, but with a better understanding off the range of the superior abilities, and identify the Superior as a different level of Nova, not equal to any of the other archetypes.

  • Knowing you guys liked it is great! I did my best, and in fact I am going after a proper grammar revision of the book (it’s a “professional book” as it’s selling for real money, so it need a proper treatment).

    Indeed, the book is not about martial arts, it’s about wuxia, and I had to “power up” the Talents to reach the intended level. After some time I had to stop adding stuff because it was getting too far, I limited to Dragon Ball, Naruto and the close related, so for sure there are far more effects that could be added and explored.

    I have a few more ideas...

  • The thing about scale and powers in Scion and Trinity is not about the frequency but about flexibility.

    Scion is flexible, basically if it’s sounds good it works as desired, because that’s how myths work. Booms, miracles and uses of titles are ABSOLUTELY flexible, just pick the proper point of view or motif and Bang, it works. Novas CAN do that as power stunts... well, novas can do anything... but they are on Demigod Tier, so it’s expected from them.

    Psions in the other hand, are very focused on their powers, it’s not like they are completely restrained, but they...

  • My suggestion was for replacing a ship crew by a NPC so you get some scale fight and introduce the power of the Aberrants to the players.

    For characters it’s a little too simple, but can be done if the characters are really meaningless.

    My suggestion as a story guide is go for a session 0 with your players so they can create their characters, and tell them the story as they learned thru whatever way. Latter in the game they may learn the details thru a flashback or something.

    Now on your approach:
    I suggest you to use the defense rules (not the fixed...

  • My house rule for Enhancement stacks is:
    Max 3 if only a bunch of +1
    Max 4 if there is at least one +2
    Max 5 if there is at least one +3
    Except for scale, there is no single enhancement higher than 3.
    Psi powers that grants enhancement 4 instead grant +2 and 1 scale and if grants 5 instead grants +3 and 1 scale

    I am quite sure they removed the hard cap on +5, except for the content on Aberrant Maniscript.
