  • I meant perhaps there's a Quantum power for manipulating psi a mirror to the QK.. on the other hand perhaps its a one way direction. Quantum is more Brute Force than Psi, which is more Brute force than Talent....

  • Yeah that makes sense. So how invasive and time consuming is latent screening for the potential psion? Can it be done without the latent's knowledge?...

  • True Faith can go beyond 5, No it can't do anything really impressive like that. Though it may let you shrug off all sorts of supernatural powers and force even the eldest of Vampires to run away and cry in the corner.. its much more personal like that?...

  • So its not assumed the would be psion has some sort of debt to a group for going through the process?

  • Follower of Set is used as the example vampire for True Faith in the Dark Ages secrets section. Basically you have to believe your god(or Ideology) is Good. The Follower of Set with True Faith(vs Akhu) is the Follower of Set who full out believes Set is the warrior against the Tyrant god. The Lord of Freedom, the protector of the downtrodden.

    The True Faith Settite Freaks the SHIT out of Setites, Especially Religiously Dogmatic!...

  • I am a little confused how one becomes a psion in relation to the Orders. As a latent do you sign up for the Order and then before being dunked have the option of swapping to a different tank or do you generally sign up with an order and some people leave and join others? Similar sort of question for freelance psychics..

    Everyone seems to have a space buy in, though I have no problem with this idea(though would that mean there's a Quantum psi manipulation power?)...

    I'm going to take this here. I think the Time war game should be the "home" line for Tier 3 Paramorphs.

    Don't meet the prerequisites, Onyx path doesn't have 90 game ninjas to break into your house and force you to.


    If you look at the cost of going from a starting Psion to Tier 3 it will take roughly 2 years assuming weekly play. That is assuming you go straight for it and don't buy up things outside that. I have plenty of games I've finished in 2 years.




    No its not. Its not reasonable at all. I don't play D&D with the assumption I'm going to max level. I don't play Vampire with the assumption I'm going to Eat my Way down to Antedeluvian....

  • This is discussed in Detail in The Celestial Chorus book. I for one treat True Faith as "Hedge Magic" for the Celestial Chorus in my games and don't allow Double Dipping and this is a suggested option in the book(as is the standard "they can double dip" and "no Celestial chorus aren't mages they jsut have true faith..").


    I think the DA secrets book has probably the best writeup and examples of how to rp a Vampire with True Faith though to brings things back around to the OP. It gives general requirments of the character and player and the sort...

    a Tier 2 Talent doesn't automatically upgrade to Tier 3. You can play perfectly good games at Tier 2 with them. Same with Psions, there might be a rare few who climb up to Proxy status but most are staying at Tier 2 forever. Stalwarts don't necissarily have to become Novas, you can keep them in Tier 2 forever.


    The separation of Psion/Nova powers is a pure in universe creation that has no basis outside it that exists purely to build plot of off. Tier 3 Talents are an interesting plot hook dangling out there. If you don't want to use them. Don't.3

    Higher Tier Paramorphs should exist.. and if that removes time powers from Novas well I'm ok with that.

    Max is clearly at least Tier 3 and I'm not a big fan of "NPC ONLY" scale.....

  • Well looks like we need a correction in the books because Intiate arts says "you can only learn this if taught" and while i have no problem with the idea that Wraiths can invent new things it takes signficant time and effort. The ways of the Jade Empire are clearly passed from one person to another. They are Taught. The reason they aren't common in Stygia is lack of people teaching them.

    This is a really simple solution and doesn't invalidate Stygians having Jade Arts. They just need an appropriate teacher. Or a dark Pact. Jade Teachers are more common in the Kingdom of...

    I think some of the npcs are covered through out the various Dharma books.

    I'm saying this in light of Revised Progenitors, there is a huge split between the people who want to save the world, the people who have no problem wasting resources making monsters, and those who have "grown up" about money.






    Well.. the Union are designated villains, maybe not on the Nephandi level and there are shades of grey and nuance and alot of good intentions to them but they are designated villains.

    Now them being anti-refugee does seem to be fairly inconsistant with their portrayal in the revised books, but the Technocracy...

    I don't think the platform is as universal for the progenitors and IX. I think there are probably a signficant amount of Progenitors and Ixers who.. don't give a fuck, who are all in for their personal transcendence into a cool immortal machine, or would have no issue with instituting Brave New World style class system, or who buy into the "We have earned our Technology, I'm not giving it away"

    So I'd see them hedging towards libertarianism, but have no problem using neoreactionaries to get there....

    I feel like there are poles. "Big Brother is our Friend" and "Hunger drives Innovation!" with syndicate largely at one end even though they hypocrically have no issue with manipulating the market, and the NWO being at the other with the other three having degrees of "Money is a Hastle" and "I'm a post human entity of course I can get whatever I want"...

    I don't think Syndicate members I'd meet if they existed IRL would be any of those things, but generally I'd assume the rest would be broadly more progressive. They would majoritively be smug atheist though....

  • No they can't, you can only spontaneously manifest common arts. Initiate arts require the instruction of someone who knows it. I would consider having access to the Spectral Hive mind to be a rather rare occurance and not one that effects the general ease of knowledge spread throughout either kingdom.











    The Emperor has actively cracked down on anything resembling Guilds, this does not mean that there isn't a basic teaching method. It simple you can't sponaniously manifest Jade Ways. Someone can teach you. There aren't...
