    replied to So, what's the plan?
    Horizon is a beautiful vision, but the impression I got (which could be wrong) is that Horizon was something that happened out of convenience, a headquarters to coordinate their efforts against the technocracy. It wasn't an intentional creation to show a vision of the future, but a fortress that expanded as needed and then collapsed due to betrayal (if you follow metaplot). That's not quite the inspiring unifying image I had in mind.

    Again, survival by itself is not an invalid goal, if the Council wants to remain a purely defensive pact then that's their choice. I'm just saying that...

    Preservation and survival are perfectly valid goals, and the if the Council and Traditions prefer the status Quo then that's their choice. My issue (which is entirely personal, I don't expect, or need, the setting to change to accommodate my preferences) isn't with those goals, my issue comes when that's all there is. I see the value of preserving the wisdom of the past. Thing is, I need something else, something to look forward to, and I don't feel like the Council offers that to me....

    So, what's the plan?

    For a long time, I've been trying to answer the question as to why I prefer playing with the technocracy and not the council. I found many reasons, but there's one in particular I feel strongly about, and I wanted to share it with you. (Sarcastic and exaggerated dialogue follows)

    Me: "So hey council, what's the plan?"

    Council: "To allow all paradigms to coexist in harmony."

    Me: "That's a goal, not a plan."

    Council: "Well, you know, we fight the technocracy to free the masses from..."

    Me: "No

  • My interpretation of masteries is that they are the result of what happens when a Talent finally becomes aware of their power, and I don't mean just from a rational point of view, but also from an emotional and spiritual way. How they understand that power depends on each talent's beliefs, the only thing they have in common is that they are now the "masters" of flux and not just accidental users. It's the kind of evolution I wanted to see in talents and I hope they keep expanding the system for other settings....

  • I think that everyone has pretty much provided all the compelling arguments against and in favor of the Disparate Alliance, so instead I'm going to provide my interpretation and let people use it, or not, as they see fit.

    First off, why it's so hard to imagine that groups with, pardon the pun, disparate beliefs would band together if the incentive is powerful enough? Like, let's say, avoid extinction? Let's see the position that the crafts find themselves if you follow most of the metaplot. A progrom by the technocracy, ignored or absorbed by the traditions, and the avatar storm that...

  • Hum...I'm not sure which society is meant to be similar to the assassins from assasin's creed...Daughters of the Jacobins? The Signal? Society of Leonidas? Would that make then the Krugu Vorov and Suzumebachi Group/Swarm the sort of Templars?...

  • My interpretation of the Shadow is that it's a parallel society that exist thanks to the efforts (both conscious and subconscious) of some very powerful talents and a world that does its best to pretend it doesn't exist.
    As for the setting, in my head it's, well, the "Shadow" or reverse of the core book. A world of "darkness" if you prefer where the talents instead of fighting to make the world a better place fight to prevent it from getting worse....
