    Thank you so much for this answer. It's a simple explanation that makes total sense....

  • Ok, to get back on track to my topic, it seems that I haven't explained myself well enough and for that I apologize. This topic is all about speculation and personal interpretations, I'm not looking for definitive answers. I'm just curious about your perspectives till we get a look at the last chapter.

    Let me clarify, I already know about the barrier that the Doyen put and the official explanation, what I wanted to know is how (almost) every single trace of the adventure era was erased. Does the disappearance of telluric energy also erased everyone's memory? Destroyed every inspired...

  • I don't know if anyone is playing the game Evil Genius 2: World Domination or the one before, but I'm planning on using the Adventure! system to play in a modified version of the Evil Genius setting. There's just something about the campy 60/70s aesthetics that brings a smile to my face and I love the old James Bond movies. In theory, you could just use the Core book, but I also wanted stalwarts and mesmerists in the game....

  • I find this idea hilarious, and I'm definitively going to use it in one of my games XD...

  • As stated in some answers above, it all depends on which type of game you're going to run. Each order favors a particular type of theme which sometimes can create friction between characters (and great role-playing opportunities), while you can run pretty much any kind of adventure with the AEON society. That said, there are two scenarios in which it's pretty easy to have psions from different orders working together: fighting aberrants and space exploration. I recently ran an adventure that led a group of psions from the legion, orgotek, esculapian order, and the ministry to conduct field research...

  • [Adventure!] How did the adventure era really ended?

    Hello Everyone,

    While my topic about the influence of the inspired in the world is all about speculating how the timeline would diverge, this topic is about speculating how the inspired, and their actions, disappeared by the end of World War 2 according to "official" canon (we still need to see the appendix section of adventure). So, what really happened? What follows is just my personal theory, feel free to share yours.

    The most common explanation is that the telluric energies of the hammersmith incident faded away to nothing by the end of the 40s and with...

  • Ok, I read the chapter and I must confess I'm a bit disappointed, but it's just a personal feeling based on my expectations, the quality of the writing remains as good as always. My issue is that the whole chapter constantly hints at the influence of the inspired, but it's described in general terms, without specifics, and sometimes it's little more than a mention. I was expecting something more similar to Aberrant or Aeon where the changes are way more drastic, specific and have a bigger impact in the world.
    My suspicion is that the authors realized that too much intervention by the inspired...

  • Ok, if that's the case then I had the wrong idea about the Technocracy. I always pictured it as a single organization with each convention acting as a department, but based on what you all told me, the truth is that each convention is basically an independent organization within the Union, less corporation and more conglomerate. Am I correct?

  • The effects of the inspired in the world of Adventure?

    One of the things that I love the most from the trinity continuum setting is that people with powers DO make an impact, they have a real influence. Unlike the heroes and villains of Marvel and DC Comics, you can see the in AEON and Aberrant settings just how much psions and novas change the world with their presence and their actions. My question is then, are we going to see something similar in the world of Adventure? Has there been a leap in technology, political changes, social transformation, etc...as a result of the actions of the inspired? What are your predictions?

  • Thanks for all your answers. I have another question for you. Who gets to decide when to call the marines? Say, a grey suit from the NWO or a high executive from the Syndicate see that shit is about to hit the fan and the mission is about to end with a lot of deaths, it's time to bring the big guns. Do they have the authority to request such support without approval? It's just that I have a hard time picturing the hierarchy in the union when it comes to request assets from a different convention. Is there an established protocol?...

  • I'm a bit confused about Macrothechnicias and the digital stuff. How is that related? I though macrotechnicians only dealt with large scale engineering projects. I can see them involved in plans to expand internet infrastructure all over the world, but digital? What are they doing there?...

  • Thanks, but that begs the questions: what are the methodologies within the convention then? Philosophies? Departments? Something else?...

    Yes, it doesn't say it explicitly. I just assumed that, based on the text from aberrant and AEON, she would have said something like "Max, Primoris, you boys can go around the world having adventures and making a mess of everything. I'm just going to do my own thing, don't bother me." and then disappear from history to focus exclusively on her research. That said it's perfectly possible that she could have been there at the beginning and then leave when things got too tense between Max and Primoris. In fact, I'm happy to see that she wasn't just a hermit that ignored the world around...

    started a topic Where are the marines from Iteration X?

    Where are the marines from Iteration X?

    All over the technocracy books I see time and again how they mention the relationship of Iteration X with the military industrial complex, and how they have an army of deadly cyborg marines with the most devastating weapons known to man. However, when I read about the different methodologies of the convention none of them strike me as the militaristic type. It surprises me that they don't have a methodology dedicated to pure militaristic pursuits, or just a standing army. I mean the syndicate has the enforcers, the progenitors have damage control, etc... Am I missing something?

    What surprises me is that Kaur is not only involved with the AEON society, but it's also one of its founding members. From what I read in the recent aberrant and aeon books I always got the impression that she just went her separate way after the Hammersmith incident to do her own thing....
