  1. Same thing as asceticism, but instead of getting "magic" you get "psionic" abilities...not really a big mechanical difference, just a different descriptor. I don't really know if there would be different ascetic traditions for them, so to cover my bases, I am assuming they are different. -STS
  2. Well, I was meaning more things like a lot of vows, not just chilling in a tower focusing on eternity. Something like living only on bread and water, no sex, vows of poverty, etc. Thanks for the heads up on Mythras Lloyd and Ian. -STS
  3. Are there any rules or skills for religious or psionic asceticism anywhere? Thank you in advance. -STS
  4. I don't like simplistic morality. I liked having all the sides being both good and bad. Feels better, more natural, to me at least. Just like all Orcs are not evil, all Imperials are not evil (at least in my interpretation). As for Rey...well, she IS the grand-daughter of the most powerful Sith ever, who was literally going to possess her to continue his reign. She is supposed to be OP. Within the constraints of the universe, it made sense, to me. Finn was trying to tell Rey that he is Force Sensitive, and that he kinda has the hots for her...but then so does Poe...kinda. Instead of a weird love square, having Rey be a Force Diad with Kylo Ren (just like Bastila Shan and Revan) was a good way to solve that issue. Because so many people hated the Rose/Finn story line (to the point that the actress, Kelly Marie Tran wanted her character cut out as much as possible), they dropped it and tried it with Jannah, which kinda seemed a bit more understandable (they have a lot more in common). It is my third favorite SW movie...After ESB and Revenge of the Sith... -STS
  5. ?? I am assuming you want your antagonists to be non-sympathetic things to be mowed down with moral impunity? The FN storyline was kinda weak sauce in the last three flicks, but in Rogue One, you learn that the Rebellion are pretty much terrorists and murderers...but they were presented as the good guys in the other films (minus Rogue One). I don't know, I rather liked the fact that the Stormtroopers were humanized a bit. The fact is that there are several types of Clone/Stormtroopers...the Kaminoan clones, the Spaarti flash clones, the actual Stormtrooper Corps using Humans, then some near humans (in the EU mostly), then the First Order Stormtroopers that were snagging kids and hypno-indoctrinated them. I appreciated the fact that there was some humanization for the Stormtroopers. -STS
  6. Wow...gorgeous. More money for Chaosium. But so much happiness for me and the poor investigators who will be investigating. -STS
  7. The whole awaking thing leading to unseen wars feels like it was stolen by Mage: the Awakening. The OWOD Mage was great but the NWOD version feels like a Nephilium copy. Well, another way to play it would be similar to the tager idea in CthulhuTech. Instead of being taken over with no say in the matter, you could run it like the Nephilium has to be asked to be join with the human. That would be a good way to start the game off...a human is in a near death state and instead of death, the Nephilium could offer life at a cost. Alternate ways would be having to do a ritual to make a bargain, or get kidnapped and sacrificed by a cult and your character has no choice but to be Nephilium skin puppet... That could give you a choice of campaign style. This is really cool. Were they 100% Nephilium with memories, or did they play it like a symbiosis sort of thing. -STS
  8. You actually have players that want to play Nephilim? Wow...That is so cool. I envy you. -STS
  9. I only own the core book, and while this might seem silly...was there more books produced for it (in English)? I have had the most luck in tying in the game as an "alternate" view of the world for my CoC games. As a stand alone game, I don't know anyone who played it...and I am the only person I know who even owns the book. -STS
  10. I have both games, but don't play either. I use some of the ideas from Nephilim in my CoC games.... As for Superworld, I think most of that was covered in the BGB. -STS
  11. I am also very interesting in getting an update on this project. Sci-Fi and BRP are my two favorite things.... -STS
  12. Spotify has a lot of random playlists if you are up for that sort of online thing. I second the recommendation of Abney Park. -STS
  13. First off, Thank you! This may be the push that my wife needs to run Ravenloft. Her first choice was AD&D, her second choice was 3E (blech), but this may work to have her run it in a GOOD system...(although AD&D was "better-ish" than 3E, now that I can look back on both systems...) -STS
