  • So one thing I'd like to say about the Legions, because I will guess they're supposed to be TFV.

    Ancient war was very different from the type of operations TFV recruits from. Ancient armies fought in massed formations to keep some elements of control during battle. They would often live off the local land, since logistics as we understand wouldn't come into being until roughly the Napoleonic Era. While ancient warrior elites would be comparable to what TFV prefers to recruit from, the Legions of Irem would still be an ultimate blunt instrument, not well suited to the small-scal rigors...

  • As I see it, for Pathogen you are someone that is very, very ill. Of course, you know that this disease is different, but you're not sure in what way. Is it because the virus is aware? Is it some kind of ancient superbug that somehow came back? Bioweapons project gone horrifically wrong? The virus itself isn't exerting any direct control, but you're still dealing with new urges and compulsions because of it that aren't entirely your own.

The episode concerns a psychic capable of hypnotizing/mind-controlling people into doing whatever he wants, up to and including killing themselves. The psychology of the character is that he's a "little man" who found something that made him feel big, and he's using it for all he's worth. He isn't trying to take over or change the world, he just wants to have fun and uses his powers to do it. This isn't a concept of great cosmic powers, because his powers came from a brain tumor. There's also the movie Dreamscape, which is a...

  • See, to me Psychics aren't "broken" in that sense. They essentially built themselves into something that isn't quite baseline human anymore. To me, they're like Tony Stark when he stood in front of Congress and claimed he privatized world peace. To anyone with a lick of sense, that'd be terrifying to hear someone say. To run down the possible comparisons right now:

    - Psychics aren't Mages: Psychics don't cause Paradox by using their abilities, and don't have their souls turned by supernal magic. True, they're not quite human anymore, but their abilities don't quite fuck...
