    The Transformation power from page 224 of Aberrant says it costs, "1 Quantum point per dot distributed" while the Extra Traits power tag says, "Each instance of this tag increases Transformation's Cost by 1 Quantum point."

    If a character has Transformation 3 and one Extra Traits power tag and allocates all six of the available power dots, which of the following is true?

    1). The character spends 7 Quantum; 3 from dots granted by Transformation, 3 from dots granted by Extra Traits, and 1 from possessing the Extra Traits tag.

    2). The character...

    Just because the rules say you're supposed to start with an Origin, Role, and Society Path doesn't mean you can't ask your Storyguide to make an exception. Maybe you're a 15-year-old prodigy who is too young to have already joined a reputable faction, so you take two levels of your Origin Path in place of a Society Path. Maybe you're a new PC joining an ongoing campaign and you became Inspired in the presence of the party; you obviously haven't received any training from their faction yet, so you take two levels in your Role Path. Maybe you're a member of the Sacred Fraternity of Stage Magicians...

    The Adjust Template power specifically doesn't let you do that. Page 262:

    At best I'd turn the attempt into an opposed roll, with successes counting as a Complication to buy off before the target can freely use their powers.

    If the target truly wanted to be rid of their powers, I'd let it work, but follow the rules for using the power to perform a sex change:

    replied to Evolved psiads.
    One difficulty is that Psiads don't really get the high level powers that'd allow for permanent changes until they reach Psi 5 or 6, and I doubt many Psiads have hit those milestones.

    It takes Iatrosis 5 (requiring Psi 6 and an Edge) to make permanent adjustments to someone's underlying noetic template, and even then you cannot grant or remove psionic power; although combining efforts with a Biokinetic may help in that regard.

    Another would be that Psiads are trying to hide, so generally avoid Psions; they certainly wouldn't want to draw attention by performing a deep...

    started a topic Who is Nathan Jacobs?

    Who is Nathan Jacobs?

    What it says in the title. Page 106 of Aberrant mentions someone named Nathan Jacobs frequently receives funding from Project Odysseus because he keeps running into Babel Dossier type phenomenon, but I'm not seeing any other context for the name. The index actually points to this page if you try looking for information on him. I've done searches on this site, the wiki, and an open ended google search, but I'm not finding anything. Was this guy a 1st edition character who didn't get a wiki page, or just a random plot hook?

    I'm aware of that. I pointed that out not because it was errata, but because the inclusion of such a page pointer proves outright that the five seperate references to The Raven (on pages 198, 213, 214, 219, and 221) are to an antagonist that is definitely supposed to be in the book (rather than some companion book that is still in the works)....

    The book looks good, but I was surprised by the amount of minor - and not so minor - errata I'm still finding, including stuff I reported during the last errata round. There are five references to a monster known as "The Raven", including one with a (see p. XX) annotation, but I can't find the monster anywhere in the book using a text search. I also spent about two hours last night sending in typo errata for one chapter.
