  • While I agree a Mega Intelligent Nova would help, the nature of Psi and Quantum make impossible for a Nova to develop a chamber because it’s one of the few things that is out of their reach (and probably time and dimension travel), they just can’t handle the noetic template handling needed. A Mega Intelligent Nova would be really helpful on helping Psions/Psiads on the job, creating the genetic manipulation part, and maybe help identifying and duplicating the physical part of the process, while the others focus on the gnostic template part.

    I know a Superior can create Inspired...

  • Caltle Falkenstein is a great game, the setting is awesome, but the system is... unusual. I didn’t get it when I was younger, now I am just lazy to try again.

    Yet, it’s fairly easy to adapt it to TC. Just make a couple of templates for the races and treat magical items as super tech. I don’t recal how powerful the magic in the setting is, but as far as I recall it’s more Steam Punk than fantasy....

    I would put Ozymandias as a Talent with high facets (at least Intuitive 5) and a lot of gifts, but still Talent. Of course we have no idea how would work a tier 3 talent, we know Mercer can time travel, but it’s all we know.

    My original take on my Aberrant campaign was introduce the setting and Novas though the eyes of the Talents, just to let the players create novas later (so the players get used to the setting). But we end up creating Novas straight from session 0.

    Anyway, Core is awesome, it works by itself and give space for different settings that don’t require super powered characters (just guys with some sort of plot device or even regular people on a gritty setting). The characters are much more diverse than Origin level Scion characters and the rules for super tech are fun to play with.

    As far the rules are concerned, the great advantage of having worshipers is a stable source of legend in the forms of Fatebound and Sacrifices. Of course they must lend some of this legend to help the worshipers (otherwise they would just stop sacrificing things on the gods name, but often the gods can just keep the legend and do a minor trick to help them.

    The idea of becoming Titans is not bad, but I don’t think a former human Scion would become a Titan for lack of worshipers. And there are Titan cults described somewhere (not sure if it’s in 1e or 2e).

    Anxious for that. I didn’t have access to the Denizens book, so I have been out of Scion new material fo a while....

    My objective was pointing the difference between criticizing the practitioners and the belief, not pointing what is true or not (Priests are people like anyone else and suffer form mental issues as anyone, and Jesus, or anyone else, sexuality is not my business)....

    Those two are very likely to be Demigods (even the Romans adored Divus Julius as a Demigod, while I don’t know much about Confucius, he would be a chosen Demigod).
    The idea that worship create legend makes sense, and probably should be used, but at same time it challenges the need of a patron to ascension, while at same time put The Kardasians somewhere among the demigods (and that’s frightening)....

    Sure, but they were in the first case attacking the followers and not the beliefs system and in the second case starting the entire premises that Christian myths are true.
    When we say that Christian myths are equal to other religions or create stats for Jesus, we are offending their beliefs system, not themselves.

    Its like saying most Catholic Priests are pedophile (some evidence point to that), and saying Jesus was gay (some evidence point to that). The first one insults the practitioners of the religion, the second question what they believe....

    Well... writing about Abrahanic myths (mostly about Christian myths) will have an immediate bad feedback. The reason is, the Christianity in the book is about love and tolerance, but the followers use it to hate and prejudice. Writing a book about how Cristian myths are equal to pagan myths will bring an unproductive attention to the game and publisher.

    I said once, and will say again, the religion groups that were pointed in the book are: 1. Virtually dead religions; or 2. Already treated as second class religions in US (where OPP is based).
    The people that practice these religions...

    I think the Abrahanic pantheon is not going to be in any official book, neither it’s going to be in any Nexus (for longer than it takes for OPP check it. I may be wrong but I am quite sure there is a restriction on Monotheistic religions in the Nexus and OPP in general (to avoid a bunch of Karens after Rich).

    there are a few Abrahanic pantheons around if you deep dive in the posts. Most of them are from when the backers received the first version of the book with proper formatting, so they must be really down the list. You can find (probably) by searching for the archangels names, but I may be wrong....

    Well, the Orishas are a Monotheist pantheon, and the Orishas themselves are not gods but spirits that are closer to god than we are, like angels and demons.

    A real Monotheist pantheon (a monotheon? Or would it be a Theo?) should be one god with a lot of purviews, and possibly a bunch of demigods (as the Middle Earth Pantheon, with Valar as Demigods and Maiar as Heroes, or Valar as gods and Maiar as Demigods following the Orisha naming).

    When you talk about angels and demons, you are automatically talking about Abrahanic god (God, Jave, Allah, etc), because they are part...

  • Not to mention the only place you can buy an automatic weapon in Wallmart is US (and not all the states), any other place in the world will require some good reason to have one for personal use (I believe here in Brazil you can’t buy one legally, period)....

  • One thing that happened was, the Aberrant team was not working on the final version of Core, as it was not finished when they started. Danielle (I think it was her) commented about it in one interview.

    Some of the rules make more sense when you get the first backers pdf (the one form beguinning of last year), and many things changed. other rules are more random, I think using some references from core manuscript and maybe nit final backers pdf.

    But it was largely debated during KS, there were one day with more comments than most of other KS have during the entire time....

  • Flux and Transcendence working as Hungry and Blood Potency

    Hi all!

    Don't know what you think about the V5 Hungry mechanics, but I think it would be a great use for Flux accumulation and it’s side effects (including losing control over powers).
    The idea I have is a bit (and by that I mean completely) lose yet, but maybe you all can give me some ideas.

    A Nova have a Flux value and a Transcendence value, Flux goes from 0 to 5, and Transcendence 0 to 10 (as usual). When the character would gain Flux, the flux value increase by 1, while every end of a scene the character reduce his flux by 1, and every scene spent dormant...

  • Enhancements are never applied to initial roll. You can only add enhancements if you get at least one success in the dice.

    Your point is valid anyway for sure, but in the Katana description just below, it seams it is applying anyway to the enhancement.

  • My personal house rule for that is Wealth +2 tags for weapons and armors (Not counting the minimum of 1 Soft armor). I have to add that I never used it, as usually the characters have equipment related to their paths and hardly have to buy anything too expensive (maybe a car or a ship, but in this case the cost is balanced).

    Additionally, the enhancements of Assault Rifles don’t fit the tags, I would remove the Quality 2, reducing the total to 5 tags.
