  • A bit of a freeform Path for Aberrant

    The Cape (Society)

    Not all heroes are part of Project Utopia. You could be a solo hero working as a city defender or part of a larger super team with a larger responsibilities than a single city. A cape could be focused on crises intervention or work with authorities to stop criminal activity or be as simple as patrolling around and helping where they can. The cape focuses on being a symbol who helps and acts as a role model to inspire others to do good. From helping an old lady cross the street to stopping terrorist plots people...

    This got me thinking, both could be used in tandem. The use of local ships could hold off enemy ships while the allies from what would be too far away normally to get there in time with slower warp drive ftl use a portal to funnel ships in to a few thousand miles or so away to keep them protected from enemies and then they can use there warp drives to fly in and join their comrades. Might not be the most efficient but it does prevent enemies from targeting a single bottleneck....

    I think their biggest impact would be for planetary travel inside a single solar system. Though I think that impact would be huge, especially for Aberrant era. Even for Aeon era it would be pretty big for stellar mining and colonization efforts as resources could constantly be traveling back and forth without the need of a teleporter of which there are only a couple thousand at most between all the Orders. With Warp style FTL companies and governments could keep a constant stream of commerce and supplies and travel going. While still limited by terraforming speeds, I think Mars would grow very...

    started a topic [Aberrant] Scale and Range

    [Aberrant] Scale and Range

    How do you interpret range bands with regards to Scale? For example, the Growth power and range of things they throw might be as simple as scaling up the default ranges comparable to the new size of the character. But what about other things, like if you wanted to Scale up the Area tag for instance if for some reason you had a character you wanted to be able to casually destroy larger areas like towns or even cities? Would you have it be purely narrative? A power stunt?

    Also, on the Moving and Maneuvering section in Core. It says that higher Scale (so Mega-Speed for example) can...

    My favorite thing about the book is all the backstory on the various species and how to roleplay them

  • I'm always a fan of the Nova nation idea. It's good for story building as it presents a number of ideas. Other nations would at minimum be concerned at such a concentration of power. The possibilities such a nation could achieve. Political intrigue, debates on how Novas and Baselines should interact, the kind of government that would exist under super intelligent and super charismatic Novas, etc. I find the idea of Novas truly governing themselves far more interesting and mature than the Terat philosophy which has always come across to me as childish.

  • On the topic of the Subtle tag, how would you handle Telekinesis? Would you treat the default like how a lot of comics and Pax in 1e where there is a glowing energy indicator or like in a lot of live action media where it is an invisible force but you know it is happening because the object is moving.
