  • Yeah, the Peerage and Baramins are both really fractured in 2E, so it might really depend on the specific chapter and its history. And there's certainly Peerage who fit the Ivy League Snots mold, though the fact that Foundations are more ideological and less disciplinary now should serve to make that the exception, rather than the rule. The Peerage certainly has their own baggage to work out, and arrogance and runaway scientism certainly number among them. Baramins just tend to be worse in that regard because their ideals require a more explicit rejection of criticism, while the Peerage nominally...

  • Well, you can be Unmada and a Paragon (which is a terrifying thought). All that's necessary is going into Deep Inspiration or Exceptionally Failing a Break toward Renegade. Lemurians are more prone to being Unmada, just because they willingly and pruposefully shut out other worldviews more than the Peerage. I don't think we need Lemurians to be Unmada automatically.



    Well...The Baramins hold together for mostly practical reasons, much like the Peerage, but it's often more outwardly transactionary. With Lemurians, you're not among your peers, you're among your betters...

  • Yeah, that sounds right. The Peerage are uncomfortably aware of how similar the Lemurians are to them, while the Lemurians look at the Peerage as poseurs, wimps and cowards.



    Sounds good. Definitely the kind of people who would create Cybermen.



    Sounds like Rick Sanchez to me. I didn't think of Rick as Lemurian, but with that description, Rick would definitely fit there, considering his utter disregard for anyone's opinion but his own.



    No, wait, these guys would make Cybermen.



    And these are...

  • Yeah, that was the idea. There'd be a few Fields that are more commonly known, but the sky isn't even the limit. You can have a Field, and it can be totally outside the stereotype of your Foundation. There are plenty of Bio-Engineer Artificers, Machinist Demiurges, and Meditative Navigators. 2E Foundations are divided philosophically, not by discipline.
    • Artificers: They are materialists that believe that stuff can make the society they want. They make things, like machines, organisms, software, etc. They are defined by a worldview that places the concrete and "real" over the abstract

  • I'd actually peg the Hulk as an Anakim Ravager who really doesn't like being a Beast.

    Deadpool as a Sin-Eater could work, but it's also possible that he's an Abmortal, seeing as the main description for an Abmortal is "immortal serial killer", a bill that Wadey fits pretty well, all told....

  • Hm. let me think for a few I might like to see on that.
    • Vampire - Geist: Bronze Age Collapse. As society in the Mediterranean is collapsing, the Bound struggle to keep the flood of Sea People, a mysterious army of ghosts from the Ocean Below, from pouring in full force into the living world, while the Kindred struggle to maintain what little power they can as society crumbles in chaos. What could be compelling the Sea People to flee the Underworld in such numbers? And why do some ghosts speak of terrible "Birds of Dis?"

  • Hm... Iron Man could have a few different possible answers.

    First, we could have an Obrimos Mage (depending on the characterization, he could be Libertine, Silver Ladder, or possibly a Seer)

    I could also see a Hunter with a custom Endowment making up his armor.

    He could also be a Wizened Changeling, with the Metalflesh and/or Smith Kith. His Keeper, The Ten Rings (also known as The Mandarin, Killian, and sundry other Titles), took him while he was in Afghanistan to build weapons to arm his soldiers and Huntsmen.

    Finally, he could be a Klagen...

  • That's valid. My thinking was that it was odd to tie specific Axiomata to specific Foundations. An Artificer could be just as capable with Skafoi as a Navigator. Just look at Henry Ford....

  • It only includes non-Favored Axiomata. Favored Axiomata don't require a thesis, since they come more naturally to the Genius.




    My thinking is that Foundations (and Baramins) have favored Fields, with each Genius getting a second Favored Axiom of their choice to make up. With how Axiomata tend to be so broad, it felt odd to tie a specific Axiom to what was originally a specific scientific discipline....

  • That's an interesting idea, actually. For example, Progenitors might get extra Impetus for Wonders that further the whole "transhuman" aspect of their ideals, while Artificers could get extra Impetus for industrial Wonders. I think we might actually want to go with that.



    Yeah, I'm not opposed. Making Larvae about a more personal severance from humanity. Larvae being used in a Wonder, or being used as an easy path to a Thesis. For example, it's a lot easier to study the effects of soul loss if you rip the soul out of somebody, rather than waiting for somebody...

  • Fetches? They have Wyrd (1-10), and they even have some supernatural powers. Not sure if they quite count, but I wouldn't mind playing a Fetch.

  • Yeah, that is probably too powerful.



    That would probably work.



    Makes sense. That actually would make it more interesting, when your Beholden seems to be more focused on the goal than the Genius sometimes.

    Now, Beholden have "The Mission," which makes protecting their Impetus Source's long-term goals an aspiration.



    Yeah, I thought I had actually already done that. Fixed....

    Also, here's Beholden and Edisons.

    Morty Smith is what I consider the best example of a Beholden.

  • I would like to second this plugging. I like the idea of Beasts getting hunted to near-extinction by Heroes in a setting where such witch-hunts are normalized, while the real big bad guys are laughing it up in Wall Street and spreading the prosperity gospel to get more and more. Not to mention the crack epidemic of the 80s and the enviroment of fear brought on by the Cold War in full swing.

    I just hope that an era creator who hasn't yet decided also finds the idea interesting....

  • I'm thinking that Beholden will indeed be Impetus Sinks. Basically, you can place 1 Impetus into a Beholden, and that Beholden can use it as they see fit, possibly maintain a Wonder (or building one to your specifications), using certain Genius abilities like the Bat Deduction, or just holding onto it for safe keeping. A Beholden without an Impetus suffers the effects of the Soulless condition (although it doesn't progress unless they actually lose their soul).



    They can generate Impetus, and they can use it in limited fashion. Basically, they have Inspiration 0, so they...
