  • Here's a notion, take the Novel Dune, and slot your favorite Comic Book heroes and villains into the plot. Paul, who is the product of selective breeding and extensive training to be a superbeing, could be Captain Marvel(Shazam) or Jean Grey. The Candidates for the Baron Harkonnen are too vast to mention. Roles like Duncan Idaho or Gurney could get fun add-ins, Hawat is either Batman or Nick Fury....

    Zatanna once claimed to have two hundred spells memorized. She also seems to innovate on the fly. She seems more mage: the Ascension to me....

    Well, having a first look at some of the rules, I thinking of a Scion of Hermes. He was a writer focused on the occult and liminal subjects. Non-fiction for Fortean Times type mags and his fiction was Space Opera with occult/spiritual themes. Early skills Academics, Art(Prose writer), Occult. His paths, if I'm using the right term, would be GUIDE, LIMINAL, and SAGE.
    More later as he is worked out. Don't know the first name, but his family name is Mercer....

  • I like the basic idea, I'd want to get several eras linked to the frame. The basic Victorian/Gothic is a great start, I'd also like to see a late 1960s early 1970s game setting very sixties occult revival/spooky comics, an alchemical Renaissance Swashers and Sorcerors setting, a late Classical Dying Rome setting, and a Space Opera Bene Gesserits versus Jedi versus Lensmen versus Ming the Merciless (with the serial numbers filed off) setting....

    It would be like writing for the Justice League, Batman (a talent), Superman, Martian Manhunter, Flash, Black Canary, Green Lantern, Firestorm, (Novas) Hawkgirl, Atom, (Stalwarts), Zatanna (Mage), Aquaman and Wonder Woman (Scions), all need roles in the story. So you need to make sure they have them.

    To my mind, mixing Era splats is best done either in A) a time travel story, or B) deep space.

    For the first, allow an Inspired inventor to build a time machine that goes REAL bad. And pull a group of inspired, Novas, talents, and Psions to a city on Ancient Earth which seems to fit the requirements of Atlantis, or does it. Hidden secret? Alien plot? Alternate universe?

    For the second, try a world settled by a Nova fleeing the Aberrant wars with a group of humans, Psiads, and weaker Novas in tow. He Taints out through massive power overuse and throws the others to safety...

    Great ideas, I wanted to stay in the 1580s and within Europe in order to keep the game within one ecumen/culture. In this time period crossing cultures is hard, not impossible. Elizabeth Tudor understood and respected The Mughal Emperor of India for his religious tolerance and good character. The British and Indian Ambassadors seemed to understand each other. Meanwhile, the Ottoman Emperor dismissed Elizabeth as a vulgar barbarian who needed to learn submission to the Porte. But the contemporary Mughal Emperor wanted to understand others and the Ottoman Sultan wanted to rule them.

    Just see how that works in late 16th century Europe. I pick the time period for its glamour.

    Vitakinesis, Queen Elisabeth of England.

    Telepathy Pope Clement VIII ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pope_Clement_VIII )

    Clairsentience Rudolf II, Holy Roman Emperor ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rudolf..._Roman_Emperor )

    More later, this will take thought....

    That depends on how hard European diseases hit Native American societies. Five out of six Native Americans died by disease between 1492 and 1525. Just having Novas wouldn't guarantee much.



    Without massive cooperation from the Africans, it wouldn't have happened at all. Novas might not really change much. Africa sold slaves and often, in early periods before slaves were the main commodity desired, they enforced slave purchases against the will of merchants who only wanted gold and the local pepper substitute. When Europeans said they wanted to stop the trade and buy other...

    You seem to think I'm here for you to assign lessons to. I started out with a fun idea for a game campaign and I get attacked as immoral. I'm here for fun, not to be scolded by bullies. Please, let's go back to game talk. You scored your snob points. Now, can we use our imaginations for fun, or do you need to indulge in more scolding?...

    If you admit it was an empire and the Hansa were a conquered people who never got any say in the government of their own lands while that empire lasted, then you've accepted that it is colonial. As one contemporary observer put it (he was an Irish Catholic) "My people are less oppressed." Ireland was a colony, why wouldn't the Hansa states be colonies?...
