  • The only role in actual recorded Irish myth that Bridig has is as the inventor of keening. Yet they never seem to give Bridig the Death purview.

    Oh I get my facts from the book "Ireland's Immortals."...

    replied to Scion: Sorcerer sourcebook---ETA?
    When ever it comes out, a book for Scions, mortals, and others that practise magic sounds good. Since there are real world magic systems that are about becoming a god (either by awakening your inner spark of divinity or transforming your nature) mystic paths to godhood for non-Scion mortals should be in the book. Or at least it seems right to me.

  • Moving over to Africa. My main fear is that they might go too generic. Just looking at the fact that all of North Africa is in their African Union is somewhat odd. The nations of North Africa tend to be proud of being part of MENA https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MENA (the Middle East and North Africa). Both Tunisia and Morocco have made their desire to join the European Union clear. However, if it's stated the entry of the North African states is very recent (and also it cost the FSA some prestige) then many issues in this and other areas are cleared up.

    Because I took coursework for...

  • Hypocracy isn't the right word. Given the present day USA is constantly attacked as hypocrital by those who feel the USA owes them obedience. Right-wingers attack us to you know. We are flawed but democracy and freedom, even if we haven't been consistent with either ideal, are still noble and radical ideals. Many powerful people still fear and hate these ideals. They've always needed to eliminate America's good name as a way of saying "Look democracy can't work " Yes many times our mistakes and moral flaws have made their job easier, but we have done good and worthy things. The USA is...

  • Real world Native American religious thought has included the founding fathers. And remember, Washington, Franklin, Paine, Jefferson, and Madison, all wanted to bring the Native Americans into the USA as equals. They were men of the Enlightenment. It's the Romantics, men like Henry Clay, Andrew Jackson, and Jefferson Davis, who wanted to exclude the Native Americans. Both Washington and Franklin stated that the future America would be a cultural blend of Native American and European.

    Find a PDF of Eldritch Skies. It's a sci fi setting useing Lovecraft's cosmology. Even if you don't like the game, for you it will be inspirational....

    One thing I would love after the the Aberrant and Far Future games are printed is a book of about five to six worked examples of worlds colonized in the 2030-2050 period. Each world should have a section on settlement, the colony's condition in 2123, and it's status in the far future. Example: Planet New Plymouth settled by warp gates created by Novas in the 2040's. Different cultural groups among the settlers feel slighted or threatened by the divisions of territory and resources. In 2123, hostilities between different language and religious groups on the main continent. The American, Irish,...

  • Aberrant was my favorite, Adventure! was a very close second and sometimes in the lead. Trinity (Aeon) was always third, although the setting always had potential.

  • It's not a retraction, it's an apology. I got to see another copy of the Aeon book. The color printing on my map is defective. Everything else is okay though, I'm not asking for a replacement because that's the only flaw and it's so small. So sorry for saying the map colors weren't readable when it was only my copy. Forgive me.

  • Some suggestions I'd like to make about the Aeon setting in North America.

    1: It's a matter of taste but since they stressed the matter of agency when I got my Masters in History (Aspergers can play hob with spelling and writing style). It seems to me that there would be many groups outside of the Elites of the FSA that would favor the FSA. Examples would include the upperclasses of El Savador (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/El_Salvador) a group noted for brutal right-wing politics since the 18th century. The Native American tribes of eastern Nicaragua, who always fight with the central...

  • I'm from the US. I'm very much on the left and I live in the southeast. Add to that the fact that I seem to read as gay (I'm Bi and fairly high in the Kensey numbers) which local reactionaries love to bring up in cheap insults So I've had to be on the defensive most of my 59 years

    It may push me towards being blunt ....

  • At least you specified your issues so I can respectfully take them into account. I might fail to meet your required standard but let me sincerely thank you for your clarity.

    I intend to continue the thread. But I'll try to be mannerly. I also plan to be frank. So if you'll remain clear in your critiques it will help....

  • Frankly I am trying to be clear and straight forward. Why do I have to beg for the right to speak?

    I am sorry if you find this thread objectionable. I will certainly work to be polite. But if honestly stating issues in non insulting language isn't polite enough, what's left of free speech?...

  • Hello. I've started a thread on map and geopolitical issues with the Aeon setting. My hope is that these issues will be delt with in an "Atlas of Aeon Earth" supplement. I hope to ask a few questions here too.

    Please understand, I mean no offense.

    Question 1: Are the plague lands the map shows in Argentina a mistake? Will we be given a map of the Venezuelan plague lands?

    Question 2: Did the FSA conquer Central America? Are the FSA and Sudamerica in a struggle over the Caribbean area?

    The Early Modern/Renaissance period would be a great setting for a Talents game. Perhaps alchemists are somehow tapping into flux. Weak Psiads would be viable characters too. Some type of low level Superior/Stalwart would also be good.

    For the Aeon setting, I hope they publish an Atlas of Aeon Earth. Something to flesh out the setting and make adventures on Earth more workable. The Psi Orders need their own book as does the Aeon Foundation.

    The Foundations in the Core Book need their own book too.

  • I'm sorry if my tone is wrong. But I do want to call attention to many serious problems. Confusing maps, weird geopolitical twists, and anvilicious futures aren't small problems. Plus, you haven't made the least suggestion of what might be the proper tone or method. My posts were factual and neutral in tone. Why should that offend?...
