    I know about the spending, but like I said, the text seems to imply that the pool is refreshed by roleplaying rather than rolling again.



    At Complete Transcendence, bonds with anyone are probably impossible.



    They're example Aberrants in Aeon Aexpansion....

    It says forming bonds, as in the Intrigue section in the TC Core. Renewing bonds seems to be more roleplaying as opposed to more dice rolls.
    Gouge seems to be a Total Transformation at least. If these examples aren't Total, it gives an idea how bad it could be. Cruel indifference would be more like Basilisk's greed than Doctor Manhattan....

    There's a penalty for new bonds, but it doesn't say anything about degrading existing ones. Indifference to humanity is the best case. Aeon Aexpansion has has examples of monstous Aberrants like Slaughtermane, formerly a hero....

    That runs the risk of turning into the Sabbat. They were supposed to explore an inhuman perspective (the writer said there would be cases where Sabbat would risk their unlives to save a mortal from a burning building), but degenerated into "The Path of What I Was Going To Do Anyway" and people asking the forum how to use Vicissitude to turn humans into urinals for their club.

    What about the viciousness?...

    The Transformations described, like lack of control of power or severe psychological disorders, seem bad, as does Quantum Instability. In the Full Transformation, "Novas undergoing full transformation can twist and mutate in terrible ways, with no known limits. What is more, aberrants are no longer capable of any sort of human empathy or compassion. They are utterly transformed into monsters, and even the least vicious of them are cruelly indifferent to humanity." You might be able to justify indifference by transformation into something inhuman, but viciousness? It sounds like the...

    You may not like how it sounds, but more children would mean moving away from the traditional nuclear family to state intervention with things like creches.ala Brave New World. Heavy labor intensive processes would actually increase family size, since some children could go into skilled labor....

    That's the point.They still have to be raised by their parents. Does one of them give up his or her career to become a stay at home parent? As the poster above says, children in a post-industrial society require a lot more financial and time investment than pre-industrial ones do. Children are expected to be educated at least until adulthood, ideally graduating from college. Apart from outliers like Angelina Jolie, the wealthy don't have large families that they could easily afford. Even in a post scarcity society, there's only 24 hours in a day divided by x number of children. Devote too little...

    That's exactly how it does work. Those established nations are like that because of their lower birthrates compared to poorer and more crowded places like India and Africa, European governments are trying to reverse this, with limited success. Australia has been below replacement fertility since 1960. China has repealed the One Child policy and is also worried about an aging population. Neither of those countries lost land area. It was greater opportunities for women, causing them to put off having children, along the increased cost of raising children. Both limited the size of families. That's...
