  • Yes you can, there is nothing that forbids you from.

    I guess you are talking about 1e, as 2e there is no Invulnerability power or tag.

  • It’s not that an Aberrant will become suddenly a monster when reach T10, one of the things Transcendence gives is a raise in difficulty on establishing bounds equals to 1/2 of the transcendence difference. It means he will gradually lose all friends and have more and more difficult to make new friends or develop any kind of relationship with anyone without a close range of transcendence. On T10 you would have Difficulty 6 to create a new relationship with T0 (including baseline), that’s almost impossible, as you can’t use your Mega Attributes to that end.

    The Nova can keep acting...

  • I agree with you. We should respect Transcendence and avoid it. Transformations without transcendence is a good way to build a very unusual character without lose humanity.

    As you touched the subject, the entire Sabat thing makes no sense. On VtM 1e Sabat was the bad guys, degenerated vampires that lost their humanity (they effectively reached Humanity 0). Humanity was what keep vampires playable and fun (the entire internal horror thing). In 3e you get to the point where Humanity is not relevant, and you can make a reverse humanity where you kill people for their blood AND to keep...

  • Does the transformations cause Momentum when come to play, like other conditions?

  • There is on thing about the self imposed conditions (by that I mean player imposed, not character chose to be blind or anything like that), and the transformations caused by Transcendence (as far as I remember) don't grant it. It grant Momentum when it comes to play, even if you are successful on the test, 2 if you fail and 3 if you botch (Core page 73), while transformations and the penalties caused by transcendence don’t cause Momentum (at least it don’t say anything about it).

  • If you read the description for Full Transformation (Transcendence 10) in Aberrant (I really don't know how to point it, its on the Char Creation Chapter), it says



    Note the "Generally" word, it means it's not against the rules to let the players play a T10 Nova... its just... not recommended.
    I know a few pages before it says "become an aberrant under the control of Storyguide", but when contradiction is shown I choose the answer that is more convenient

    On Full Transformation: oh man, it's going to be a crazy game! The character...

    replied to Adventure! 2e
    My favourite is Adventure! not much because of the pulp part, of course the pulp is great, but the feeling of the game, the level of power, the flexibility for characters and ways to play. You can have a metaplot game, with Aeon society as the center of the game, or you can explore all the rest of the world, the different societies and the “Terra Incognitae”.

    Than, there is the rule set, I love the way it work, it’s less flexible than Aberrant in terms of powers, but the way It works and how you can build a variety of characters is awesome....

  • What about a dimension where the dinosaurs never went extinct and due to a Hammersmith like event on their dimension one of their big cities is transported to a parallel dimension, Antedeluvian dimension, and that started the setting.

    They can be incapable of reproducing for some reason, trying to comeback to their dimension, or even having issues to find proper food, so they are hunting people... just random ideas.

    Not all transcendent Novas become vicious... Trancendence is not necessarily evil, but can be.
    Keeping the idea of the ants, some people like to burn ants, others don’t care... that’s the idea. I tried to use examples of not caring as we have lots of examples of rampaging and vicious novas....

  • Diverse like Dinosaucers?
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dinosaucers

    It’s getting better and better, it actually makes sense, the same way Novas have the most diverse appearances, the reptilians, even if not as powerful as full Novas, could develop the Mega Edge Body modification, and so become extremely diverse, like the dinosaurs (and Dinosaucers by extension).

  • Starting from the answer Bunyip give above, can a Psiad combine BK and VK to shape change others by himself?

    replied to Higher-Tier Talents
    Talents are essentially dealing with Time: time travel, time flow (speed, basically) and cross time travel (interdimensional), that’s the way a see.

    The effects, the same way Quantum Powers deal with several results, are several and extremely versatile, in opposition to, the more linear, Psionic powers. So there is 2 bases where to start, one more linear but still versatile, in the way the Charms work (I neve played Exalted, but I read the second edition a few years back, so I have a very vague idea of thir workings, other than there are a sequence of requisites that create basically...

    I agree, it’s a punishment mechanic to make it possible to overuse quantum but still be unquestionably bad for the player. Not just the part when you lose your character, but all the way until that, be horrible in dealing with people is horrible, multiple personalities is horrible, etc....

    replied to Teleport one shot kill
    You still need to Roll Power+Quantum higher than the target Defense with no Enhancements, it’s not automatic, while a Quantum Bolt will have some enhancements. I don’t think a regular Scale 6 target will have defence low enough to be an easy target for a random Teleporter kill (or at least take him too far away to ever comeback).

    Any way, if it start to make the game less fun to anyone, the SG should step on. The idea is to have fun together, and it’s getting annoying it’s better to work it out.

    replied to Teleport one shot kill
    Aberrant is about killing people like flys, if the target is not capable of handeling his way back to Earth or able to resist your forced teleport, it’s not a worth adversary. Imagine you are going to force a Nova that got Q4, Quantum Blast 4 to not instakill any target because the other characters can’t do it.

    Now about interplanetary teleport, not because attacking with it, but because it’s not the objective of the game, I would make the target roll all the power rolls and pay all the cost on activation, otherwise the power don’t work. You need to concentrate to travel that...

    I have to defend Ian here. Transcendence is not necessarily evil, but it can be.

    Imagin you are a ant that become human, after sometime you stop caring about ants, the same way we do, it’s not evil per se, it’s just... inant (inhuman for ants), you don’t care you just have better things to think about other than not stepping on ants.

    The same way you don’t gain any extra XP for, let’s say, needing a wheel chair or being blind, you can create a Nova with an specific situation that is a transformation before the proper level of Transcendence, and you gain Momentum...

  • I mean the power Transformation, the power Beast Boy have, but limited to one single form, the Hulk.

  • Hulk doesn’t need to be stupid at all, he just need to be enraged all the time. From Aexpansion, page 77:



    You can make it even worse, Hulk is permanently Enraged and get a increase in the penalty whenever use Boost. He is always Mega Intelligent, but can’t keep the concentration while transformed in hulk.

    Of course you need to have a Transformation power limited to a single form, that turn you into the Hulk and nothing else....
