  • I'll admit that perhaps my personal vision of genious may be a bit too optimistic and, like you pointed out, a bit too similar to changeling the dreaming, but I'm sure that we can find a middle ground between "You can create the power armor from iron man but it doesn't matter because it will eventually fail and have no impact on the world" and "My etheric generator will give unlimited clean energy to the world, eliminating the necessity for any other source of power and therefore allowing us to create an utopia free from fossil fuels" or between Rick Sanchez and Reed Richards....

  • I'm sorry, but that was one of the things that I hate the most about first edition genius, and I couldn't be happier that they're ditching it. What's the point of having those amazing skills if you can't do anything with them? Hell, what's the point of playing a game in which nothing I do matters? I already talked about this on my first posts.
    For me, genious is not about failing no matter what and dealing with the desperation that comes with the realization that you can't win. For me, genious is a game about leaving behind the arrogant attitude of the genius that makes him think that he,...

  • For me, the tragedy of the genius, and their main motivation is this: They're smart enough to see the glaring faults of society with greater clarity than the average person, while at the same time they see the amazing potential of what that society could be. It's the conflict between the vision of a utopia that their inspiration brings to their minds and the clash against the sad crushing reality of our world that their eyes see. A world populated by a majority of people that are too afraid of change and too trapped in their routines to dream.
    The irony is that the very same intelligence...

  • Awesome explanation, with all of that combined it seems more plausible. If you allow me I would like to one more. Keep the number of geniuses low, not just because few manage to become geniuses, but also due to the inherent dangers of their lives many end up dead, that makes exposure to their craziness even less likely.
    Keep doing an awesome job. ...

  • The biggest elephant in the room when it comes to genius, at least for me, has always been how their superscience hasn't changed the world or how they manage to remain hidden from the rest of society.
    Restraint is a very good way to explain why they censor themselves and try not to draw attention, I love it, but even then I think we need more. It doesn't need to be one thing, it can be a combination of factors on top of restraint. Maybe society rejects their discoveries because it's no ready for them, maybe there are powerful people who don't want society to change, etc...
    Even if...
