  • I don't think you need to force novas into it, nor do you need to have novas run it. All I was suggesting was NOT to make it "novas aren't members" but rather make it "while there are a few nova members the vast majority of those in the Transcendence Society are baseline or Talents, not that the later category are well known." Then in secrets section you could add something like "Though it is not official nor is it talked about there seems to be an undercurrent of anti-nova bias. Where this comes from, and what this means for the future, is not yet known." Etc etc....

  • Yes, but remember, in an Aberrant game the default assumption is that the players are novas and that the factions are societies they are going to join. If the whole faction is "no novas need apply" then the faction would exactly be used. Which is why I say have there be novas but also have there be some issues. That way there is a source of ready made conflict but also a place for the nova characters to fit in.

    As a comment on the setting more than simply your society - what Divis Mal did with the N-Day Eruption system was bascially an act of 'global transcendence'. He...

  • I like most of the additions. Except ome, the no known novas. I think thats limiting. In a negative way. Rather I would say keep them small in number and not supremely accepted.

    Also wben talking psychic abilities its Psiad as they are the natural formed noetic users and not psions, which come from the Prometheus Chamber.

    Okay. Now I'm tginking of a future wbere the society is the one to usher in the Noetic Age decades before the Doyn do. Hehe

  • This is awesome. I need to read it in more detail but at first glance its awesome.

    Thoughts.

    Them existing pre-N-Day is awesome. Maybe you could have one of the founders be a Stalwart or Talent or something, just to indicate why they push the envelop like they do, even if its a bit slower than the resulting Novas.

    The whole thing about corporations is brilliant. I don't think the core game gives the potential of novas and such with companies as much as they should, and so this faction using that is interesting.

    The factions are interesting...

    Thats how it works for Psions, you have VK you are unaging. Why cant it ge for novas - you have mega-stamina you are unaging.

  • I don't understand the nature of not applying one's Mega-Attribute dots in scale to all normal uses of an Attribute. To me if you have Mega-Dexterity 3 then everything that has Dexterity in dice pool (or Mega-Cunning for Cunning or Mega-Stamina for Stamina or Mega-Resolve for Resolve, etc) should get boosted by the dot in scale. Whether this boost comes natural or through the necessary purchase of an applicable Mega-Edge I don't care, but it should still occur....

  • I;m fine with base Mega-Dex not automatically providing a bonus to Defense but at the same time I think something should, be it a Mega-Edge with dots or a power or something. That also said if base Mega-Dex did automatically provide for Defense all it means is that at some low point baselines are unable to strike Novas - which make sense and is logical. That said, remember, when someone also has Mega-Dex or some other stat that makes them think or move fast (so Mega-Cunning maybe as well) then the two ratings cancel each other out....

    replied to What do your Scion series look like?
    This sounds amazing. This sounds like a pergect set up for many different sorts of games (such as one based on usimg the Trinity Continuum rules).

    So yeah really cool idea. Really cool....

    I don't own Scion 2e but i own all 1e and if they bring back Atlantis in a book I know I'll buy tgat book which means I will but the core books.

    Also having the First Deities of Atlantis being Time and Space is BRILLIANT! So much greatness. Same with the idea of a hidden space folding island city.

    Its totally Raynor and Matt Horner and Arcturus Mengsk and his son Valerian Mensk and probably a few others who would be Talents. Which is exactly what Talents are - people with super luck and such to come out ahead of things. So yeah I would totally say that humanity has Talents among its members. Especially the PCs at base level. (If I was to ever run a Starcraft based game using the TC rules I would always allow my players to play Talents, especially if I did not allow Superiors or Mesmerists)

    I really do agree with you on the whole wanting to see rules for Psiads, VARCs and superiors

    I don't have time to fully comment on this at this time but I wanted to say that I read this and really really liked it.

    Some immediate thoughts.

    I could see Zerg taking both Mega-Attributes and Mega-Edges to represent the enhancements that they get through evolution and the power of essence.

    I could see certain Zerg characters (those of a higher order, so such beings like Cerebrates and such) could also have Void-Touched. I say this because the reason the whole death of the cerebrate worked is that the Void touched Protoss used his abilities to stop the...

  • You know what I would really like, a Trinity setting where it is the Inspired who are the ones that head into space and organize humanity's future.

    In 'simple' terms the Expanse but with Inspired. hehe

    Or more organized, humanity has expanded within the solar system to the point that there are bases, outposts, colonies, and or stations on every main world, their major moons, and a vast assortment of asteroids. This would be a humanity that has a UN like structure for high level diplomacy (which could be a fun game structure) but numerous individual planetary nations...

  • I'm not sure if the world could handle Novas, Psiads, and super-Talents all appearing at the same time. Hehe

    It would be awesome though. All the fun that could be had with humanity being enhanced in such an advanced way.

    As a note, I always thought it would be interesting if in the near future humanity goes to space and as we do the Inspired start to manifest. But that is not so much N-Day....

  • Right, but to play out being there from the beginning means that actions have to matter and that those actions could lead to other changes in the world. Player developed technology and player created political movements, etc.

    A player building a company. A player pushing the election. Players hacking into some sort of information system and releasing political news to the world. From that I think lots and lots of changes would happen....

  • So I can't help but wonder what Aberrant would be like if say the start date was 2019, that is, novas appeared in October 2018 but its only been a year since then. The players are the first crop of novas to fully manifest. Which means they get to be on the ground initiating events that come later.

    I could totally see keeping the timeline events continuing in areas that players don't touch. (So if no player is about terraforming then Utopia still cleans the environment, and if no player is about medicine than Triton still creates cures.) But I could see making major changes based...

  • IanWatson wow that's spectacular. Also its a very awesome moment leading to the presence of the superhuman. Very cool. I'm going to have to look that up.

    It's not so much comics, and its not so much for Aberrant, but I gotta say I just watched Season Three of the Expanse (and are rewatching season 1 and 2) and so many ideas came to me. Two in particular, the first being the whole nature of a giant gate leading to a space where thousands of other gates also exist and the second being the Nauvoo. I LOVE, love, love, love, the mobile space habitat generation ship with a rotating cylinder...

  • Look its clear that to you Stalwarts are just Novas with a lower Quantum score and lesser powers, but from what we know from First Edition and conversations from the new one, that is not what they are. Stalwarts (Superiors), Mesmerists, and Daredevils (Talents) are of a lower order of Inspired. They are their own thing. They are powerful yes, but they are not at the same category as the greater ones; with them being Novas (naturally formed quantum users) and Psiads (naturally formed noetic users).

    This is from someone who likes the idea of the potential that an Inspiration 10 Stalwart...

  • As a related question are we the only ones that know that Divis Mal is Dr Primoris is Michael Donigal or do some people in the world itself know of the connection. (I don't mean Scripture, as I assume Divis Mal told his lover of his past.) Like does Aeon know its the same person despite different names.

    Honestly, the fact that Novas existed pre-N Day means to me there should have been a nova politican or business leader. Someone with access to quantum abilities, even if it was just non-flashy Mega-Attributes and Mega-Edges, who acted to make his company or state better....

  • Stellar Colonization

    2. Once the quantum technology is activated a number of locations begin appearing on the sensor map. From this a number of worlds get targeted for warp. Teams begin to be assembled so that they can begin the initial survey of these worlds.

    The idea is that this phase of the campaign would be set up as worlds of the week followed by something on Earth in between. The worlds visited would be all over the galaxy, linked only by a high concentration of natural quantum energies. The worlds would have abundant plant and animal life and maybe some rui...

  • Maybe its just me, maybe I'm old fashioned or something, but I like to think that the rules for using Warp should be in the section for Warp. To me the way to go about doing it is that Warp requires a roll, with successes being spent to indicate how far one goes. Tags can be bought to increase the range multipler and other factors. That to me seems the simplest.

    I'd rather combine the Warp roll and the navigation roll together as a roll to achieve success....
