  • <3 <3 <3 love it. It'd be cool if the Gen 2s developed some Nova-Tech (hey VARGs) that would put humans - particularly Talents - on some kind of even footing with low level Aberrants and later other Doyen/Coalition adversaries....

  • I think it's clear I love all of this line of spitballing but the Robotech SDF1/Macross militarized city unstuck in time and space solving intergalactic mysteries, thwarting alien genocides and eventually being a thorn in the side of the Doyen....

  • This is a great thread. Jupiter's Legacy - sans the limitations of transcendence - handled it by making the next generation of heroes spoiled brats who were celebrities rather than superheroes. Maybe all of the villains had been rounded up. And I appreciate spoiled, do-nothing celebrity is already boiled into the setting but it makes me think of the athletes-musicians-actors-politicians who have come after parents who are famous for the same thing and it seems like the offspring is either not as talented or is as talented (or more) but has aggressive emotional baggage / drug issues and whatnot....

  • Couldn't agree more. I don't think I've ever started a thread over here but was thinking that when the final, final Aberrant comes out I'd like to start a thread that encourages people to step-by-step particularly their Q-tech. Love that the Aberrant core book has the wink-wink Battingman & Capital American & Irony Mane & Aunt-Mom gear. It feels like Mjolnir (esp the conduit to focusing Thur's powers version) would fit perfectly within the rules. However, I think I'd need a spectacular volume of hand-holding to get there....

  • I do like Transcendence as a concept too - the White Wolf/Onyx Path games are great at tragic flaw esp Exalted IMHO - but what I really love about it is that it seems like it has to be fairly intentional. Becoming a monster is probably worth it to survive certain death but probably not for a show of power - or a gamer who likes playing Grand Theft Aberrant....

  • One of you had a great idea (or maybe it was canon) about the Directive hiring Elites to take out medium level Novas and on their own compromise or kill low level ones. By the time the Aberrant War rolled around, perhaps there were not enough sane high level novas and the ones that were around got the feeling that they weren't so welcome.

    Speaking of, there was a fun Exalted what-if source book. 1) I'd go for a "what if the Chinese did launch their fusion weapons? Most of earth was destroyed but some of it got real, real weird - temporal shifts, soft spots between this and other...

  • I appreciate that there is some Flanderization BUT I'm a little yawn about - I don't know - Homelanderization/Warren Ellisization of heroes too. I think one thing that makes The Boys so fresh for people who aren't as steeped in nerd culture as we are is that Homelander seems fresh to them. I feel like the rest of us have seen pastiches (etc) of Superman and Captain America (and Batman etc) for some time. A plain old good guy - with realistic and reasonable human flaws - is a really compelling character. Possibly even more interesting and tragic....
