  • A book on building advanced mages that are neither over or under powered would be grand. Both stabs at Archmages were both over and under powered at the same time.

    Also if some levels like Initiate, Normal Starter, Experienced Hand, Adept Mover and Shaker, and Master, were defined, it would be grand. I suppose a third stab at Archmages might be tried too.

    Don't feel lame. Celebrate the opportunity to be creative. Also, let me suggest more than one foundation. Each foundation is a basic way to see the whole truth and purpose of their Art. Have different factions for different foundations.

    Enlightenment could be a foundation for those for whom Psi is a religious path. Perhaps a Buddhist goal of moving beyond illusion. NeoPlatonic psions might seek their inner spark of divinity. Christian psions might see it as an emulation of Christ.

    Consciousness Expansion would be the more secular philosophic foundation.

    replied to Hsien... again
    Hsien in most games are rare. So it doesn't matter to most people. If you've got a game set in California or New York, letting the Hsien play uncrippled is a good idea. In cases were it inbalances the game, other solutions can be found.

  • That part of the problem, I don't know where to look for data on the Jumbees. Clearly, they are Caribbean Fae, but I don't know the stories or the lore....

  • Jumbees! Caribbean Kiths, can we make some?

    First glance at this article then let's look for details on Jumbees. These kiths won't make themselves....

    replied to The 4 pillars of Psionics
    I'd suggest that other groups of Psions might have other pillars like Probability Control (Entropy), Teleportation (Correspondence), or Ectoplasmic Control (certain Aspects of Spirit). Not every psion would have the same pillars. Note: you'll need foundations. Might I suggest Focus, Consciousness Expansion, and Enlightenment....

  • Given that in the WoD a modern reconstructing Valaerman runecrafting a Hermetic could contact the souls of long dead Valaermen, reconstructing might not be the most accurate term. Revival seems better....

  • Perhaps they say in this world, "There is no True God but the True God" and allow that there are "gods" but only one "GOD." There have been Islamic groups in Sumatra and Java that took that opinion....

    replied to Scent of the Divine
    Some of the pantheons would logically be linked with unrecognizable scents. Example: a Southeast Asian pantheon might have a sacred incense that never got popular in the West.

  • In a sci fi setting that's low on Flux, Quantum, and Psi, like a distant world settled by humans who survived their colony ship's massive misjump, other possibilities could come to the fore. Picture said distant world struggling to build itself and torn by faction and strife. Genetically engineered agents might be employed by the factions in a cold war. Assume a modification budget. Too many gene mods and a life form can't even be born. Thus designers, trainers, and the agents they create, have a vast challenge.

    replied to Dystopia Psionics
    It seems to me that the Messerist gifts in Adventure! could be a good model for Dystopian Psionics. Just raise the cost a little.

  • Look at smiths. Metal workers were seen as uncanny in much of Africa. They could be with any faction.

    Several cultures had judge mystics who represented slash channeled the ancestors to decide lawsuits. Again they could be with any faction.

  • For mad mystics and scientists seeking "a new world of gods and monsters" they seem underpowered. I'd add a point of perception along with the Intelligence and give them some added successes if they gain sucesses in Graymere.

    replied to Dystopia Psionics
    Random mutant powers in a post-apocalyptic setting should logically weaker than the products of a starfaring society's noetics. Comparing the setting to WoD games for a moment. Dystopian Psionics should be like the few random Garou gifts their kinfolk know. Aeon Psionic should be like Thaumuthurgy.

    replied to Which New Pantheons do you want?
    I hope we get enough supplements for even half those. I also hope that we get some books like SCION: RAGNAROK. In the less well known cultures it will be vital for most folks to play those pantheons. Heck! We need books like that for all ten pantheons in the 1st ed....
