  • A time war (my Agon idea) could link even wild alternative worlds into one system.

    Crossing Over with TORG

    TORG was an RPG set in a world that was being invaded by outside realities. Various individuals called "High Lords" were trying to become "GOD." Not like the Gods in Mage, more like a being that could give orders to the triat and have them obeyed! The main thing that makes a crossover with Mage an interesting is the idea of World Laws! Basically, each invading realm works in different ways. In Mage Terms, Paradox enforces different rules in each world. And not only against magic, technology, art, and cultural ideas, can also be eroded by the altered realities. Example: In the...

  • Argosy seems like a likely name for a space opera. I like the idea of a Time War that links all the settings and it could be called Agon (struggle). A game with Adventure! type inspired in the 1580-1720 period (Swashers mainly) could be called Anthor ( an Alchemist's furnace)....

    Which virtues do the Sentinels use? Valor seems likely as do Intelect and Expression. I don't have the second edition.

  • Growing, Shrinking, and Stretching, in Aberrant.

    Remembering that in one of the Aberrant books Spacial control included Stretching powers because the Nova distorted the space their arm was in. It occurs to me that the same idea works for growing and shrinking. If I stay the same, but the spatial structure I am in is compressed relative to the surrounding space, I would seem to shrink relative to the world around me. Reverse the process and you could appear to be a giant and even step over large buildings as if they were sandcastles.

    If you can do Plastic Man stretching by spatial manipulation, Colossal Boy growing and Wasp shrinking...

    replied to Folkloric beings becoming Gods.
    Jack Forst in the Ragnarok book is treated as real in setting as is Hamlet (who is presented as a corrupted scion). Iris, who did have shrines in the later classical period seems to have started as a preclassical literary figure. And she's listed as one of the premiere Psychopomps of the Greek pantheon....

    Folkloric beings becoming Gods.

    There are folkloric beings in this setting with high levels of legend. Gods remembered as creatures of fairy tale. Scions moving from hero to deity. So the status of "God" has a certain mutability. Legend is somehow tied to human perceptions and ideals. So propose a creature of Folklore, for example, Oberon, deciding that he wants to move from Lesser Immortal to Deity. He can use his powers, Oberon would have several purviews including Magic, Health, Fertility, and Sky, he could easily convince a group of Wiccans he's a deity and gain worship.

    Could Oberon become a god?...
