  • I guess I'm curious on how much of modern current history is going to be involved in the book.

    My other thing is basically Divis Mal.

  • Aberrant War Gun Removal / Into the Badlands

    So I just binged watched Into the Badlands on Netflix and absolutely loved it. I do thing there are some gaps in geography and history but that said the fights are fun and the set up interesting.

    I especially like the set up of the Badlands with its seven Baron territories and the natee of the society.

    The powers represented by the Gifted is also interesting, especially in how those highly trained can use it to power technology. Imagine taking it to the next level and instead of using coal and oil they use Chi energy.

    The one thing that intrigued me the...

    Post-Apocalyptic Inspired

    The Aberrant War was more devastating then any one had predicted or feared. No nations survived it intact and all continents became home to sights of untold devastation. Even most advanced technologies had stopped working, mostly due to nova attacks but also mundane counteraction.

    But humanity survived.

    In large part this was because when things were at its worst people came forward and said let me help. These people weren't inhumans like Novas but rather people who when matters got toughest reached deep into themselves for the inspiration to continue on. They couldn't...

    That it could. It very much could. In fact that would be incredibly fun.

    Now in such a case I would stick to a singular tower, or if a few have each be unique. I would also make them bigger.

    But the idea that something goes on in the world and the leader activates the D-engine and shifts the whole tower to another timeline. Said other timeline could be alternate histories, pre human earth, far future, far past, etc. Heck the change in timeline might not even be a once thing, but more a we gobto new earth, scout around, father intell and resources, find things not suitable...

    You know I was just thinking on this idea further while watching Isaac Arthur's O'Neill Cylinder episode and I realized something - who needs secrecy.

    What I mean is this could tltallybfit in the Nova Age as is. A nova business owner could come up with the plan, by some land, build a tower, recruit resident who fully in a what's going on, then launch it into space. The first attempt is so successful ge builds another, and another, then buts more land, and builds more, then more land elsewhere around the world and builds more. Soon humanity goes from one of these towers to hundreds...

  • And today he released a vid on the O'Neill Cylinder.

    Which I totally would want and adventure on. I could totally imagine a bunch of Novas of the Nova Age building them just because. It would be nifty.

    I actually really like this. Though I would reverse who is who. As in for me it's the secular group who build the towers and the religious ones stay on Earth. But the idea of a lot of little towers all around the Earth blasting off and coming together to form a massive structure is brilliant. Especially as some can dissconect to provide small outpost and bases and such where needed....

    replied to Specifics of Plant Mastery
    I think that Plant Mastery is mostly a talk to plants power. So it allows for communication, basic influence and control.

    BUT

    If a player came to m and said I want my nova to have power over the plant world then I would say you need to buy Elemental Anime slash Elemental Mastery but with a plant focus. We would then work together to create or choose techniques for said ability.

    So that in the end said nova could indeed do all that you suggested for them.

    Also some of what your suggatuin might be better developed as a a Super Science project...

    Nothing is secret till the blast off, which by then the world is already bad and on the eve of a devastating and probably nuclear war.

    The arcologies are blatent, commonly seen. The people working and living there participate in the national and global economy. The company operates yay like any other, but instead of normal business park centers they inhabit towers. Nothing secret or hidden about that.

    What nobody knew is that at their bottoms lay engines and that the towers were designed to move.

    That's why I figured at first a single tower, say on the...

    I'm not sure actually. I think both options are totally possible. Like it's our world and this guy says "hey look what I want to so" and well does it. Or it could be a nova age world and the war is the Aberrant War and his towers are say somewhere around the world where novas are common. Heck this could partly explain why the US fell so hard, many of the best and brightest were on the arcologies.

    I kind of like the whole the world is normal, maybe Talents exist, and here there is a secret nova who uses his abilities and resources to create mighty arcologies aroumd the world....

    Though I totally support the idea that the Inspired have been here since dawn of human civilization and that their are periods where theu r presence is strong, I have little immediate thoughts to add on this.

    Well besides saying I think WW2 need the Inspired.

    And that the government's of the world have records indicating their truthful existence.

    I will say I'm not a fan of security above the president, ibthink he should know. Plus I like the idea of a few days post inauguration a thousand page leather tome is given to them with the secret history of the...

    Spaceship Tower

    Just a random idea.

    At some point in the present or near future a secret inspired/nova engineer businessman bought some land and built a massive futuristic arcology skyscraper. Inside it's towering spiral design he established mixed residential, governmental, commercial, and industrial zoning areas full of five story buildings in six story tall levels. Collectively the arcology is about a mile tall and say three acres to a side.

    While this is going on, and it's million plus residents are moving in, the world is darkening as politics lead to separation and religion leads...

    I like the idea of it having it's own security system. Basically by a process that the nova designer can explain but most people's eyes intersect the network has it's own anti hacking security.

    To me that's a perfect opportunity for the organization the PCs are a part of to hear about it and then ask the PCs to stop it and catch the bad guys.

    You could also say that the major nations ad corporations of the world have nova teams designed to provide computer security. Heck i could see a nova with saj d powers opening his own firm for just that purpose.

    I also like the idea of a nova sliding by security, not by harming it but by basically saying his data isn't there. Its a perfect ability for a nova who doesnt want to get found out in a modern tech world. ...

    I like the upload idea. It could have interesting transhuman elements to it that couk d be fun for a campaign. Especially of the semi virtual world it brings them to is something else or whatnot.

    As I don't want a darker setting I wouldn't have the tech fail or be corrupted, but that's just me.

    Oh wow, very cool. What a fun read. I like the idea as well. Plus having it be an aerial network adds a bit of uniqueness to it that I like.

    Well maybe, because Aberrant is more a light setting then dark, the advent of Novas first halts the international decline and them begins reverses it. Behind correcting the social and political and economic and environmental and technological issues tgst are plaguing us.

    I really hope for an unconditionally good Project Utopia. Having it be an organization readers can trust would help in the process as well.

    One of the major elements of this is my hope that they go the route of the future is not yet written and so the path of the Aberrant War and Aeon isn't necessary...

    I never suggested that heavy handed activity, nor would I condone it. What I meant is there presence rapidly changes the social order.

    BUT a nova business man could use his abilities to make inventions to improve lives. And a nova social media player could use his social popularity quite alot. Heck using kickstarter a nova could get money to create a product or such.

    No need for violence just good old fashioned social manipulation through the channels already present.

    I quite agree on the official product probate being a bit more lightly on the touch of the topic. That said I would love to develop a more no holds bar timeline where the appearance of Novas fixes many of the issues we are going through now.
