    The evolution of the Storypath system is tied to our work on Trinity: Continuum, a world of hope, heroism, and peril, and Scion, a world where the children of the old gods walk the earth. Early on, we found that both new editions of these games had similar system needs, because their characters are larger-than-life and fight in epic battles on a grand scale. We knew we needed a system that could accommodate everyday citizens on the street, superheroes soaring above skyscrapers, and gods of the sun and sky, but we also wanted rules to help facilitate the connection between the player-characters, their organizations (Allegiances for Trinity and Pantheons for Scion), and their values. To move forward, however, we needed to take a step back, because the first editions of Trinity: Continuum and Scion used custom variants of the Storyteller System which powered Vampire: The Masquerade and other classic White Wolf games. Despite the differences between those variants, however, at its core the Storyteller System was designed chiefly as a horror game for creatures that could be effectively fought by human opponents. In other words, the Storyteller System is great for vampires, but it didn’t excel at portraying superheroes…or gods! To us, this meant that the stories of these action-adventure games were hindered by their original systems. The Storypath System was designed as a new set of rules, inspired by the legacy of the Storyteller and Storytelling Systems, in addition to other story-centric rules. The Storypath System keeps the focus on narrative, story-built play, and action-adventure. It also draws inspiration from a number of other influences that focus on a cinematic high-octane action and storytelling, as well, to create a streamlined experience for epic stories. Within these pages, you’ll find a preview of the rules and examples for both Scion and Trinity: Continuum. We hope you enjoy the new Storypath System and are inspired to roll the dice and tell great stories! - Onyx Path Design Team
  2. In the month since the colossal battle against the Monster many simply called Zil, The world had been shaken completely. Tokyo Harbor had been turned into a low level zone, nearly spelling the end of the massive metropolitan area. Only the pride of the Japanese people, and the deployment of 90% of the JSDF to secure the borders of the zone allowed anyone to live within 2 miles of the water. as it was the first mile was a designated Military zone,, the presence of any persons without authorization was met with lethal force. When Zil had finally rose from the water, a Titan straight out of Toei movies, 400 feet tall, impossibly strong, and a force of nature in terms of power, The collected novas had engaged with their full might, seemingly to little affect. Busses, chunks of buildings, missiles, canon, all were fired, to little effect. Growing annoyed it was only through the sacrifice of Riccochet that Zil's breath attack, an intensified blast of destructive quantum didn't strike the city itself, instead blowing off the top fifth of Mt. Fuji. Redoubling their efforts after the massively televised and gruesome death of one of their own, The gathered novas kept up their assault, losing several more from their number, before Zil turned, and went back into the sea, followed by air, to the Marianas Trench, where he dove, and still resides. it was humbling for everyone, to see powerful novas killed in such fashion, to see the horrors of a monster like Zil, the creatures spawned within his zone killed as they could be, The 5th and 8th American Fleets, as well as the 2nd British and Australian fleets maintaining a cordon as best they can to ensure the safety of shipping in the region. Novastorm had not been idle, it's best minds devoted to creating countermeasures for larger novas, and a special chosen few to develop ways to cancel the zones themselves. Those not working toward this aim were sent out, gathering data on various zones, ,until another request came in, this time one close to home. The Mississippi River system is the longest in the United states, it's tributaries ranging as far west as the Rocky Mountains. It has been well documented that New Orleans has become a zone, Openly controlled by a nova, but still on "friendly terms" for the most part with those who would go there for research, on the surface. The flora fauna of the region however, is not friendly, and is openly hostile.In the last month 24 attacks by Alligators in excess of thirty feet long have been documented all along the River system. Two were slain, only through the use military grade weaponry by militant citizenry. more than that, at least six attacks by "Bayou Shamblers" occurred over 200km from the zone. The request was to find the nests where these creatures were spawning, and destroy it, as well as remove these Primalgators, as they were being called now, from the estuary proper. Calvin knew it was the New orleans Zone, so he called the team together, assembling all those remaining from the Zil engagement, and a few new faces, recent recruits with gifts that could come in handy for the task at hand. After thirty minutes he had gathered them all in the Situation room, and explained the mission. "Allright, questions, comments, or suggestions?" Some would likely not like to be removed from their research projects, but they had to stop this now, if they could.
  3. April First, 2009. It was a day which would live forever in the History of Humanity, as the Cosmos seemed to make the ultimate April Fool's Day joke... only it didn't end afterwards, The world didn't go back to how it was, It only got wierder. No one really knows exactly what happened, what caused The Surge, but its effects were felt immediately. High Concentration radiant Quantum flooded the entire globe. From Space the phenomenon was visible as a gold-white glow suffusing almost the whole world. For nearly seventy Five percent of the world, it receded within an hour. Where it didn't, well these vast accumulations of still-hot Quantum energy are known as The Zones. Within the Zones, Physics, and normal biology have been grossly rewritten. The Middle East, Perhaps one of the larger Zones, is a Verdant Jungle, populated by monstrous creatures, some of which may have been human, once. In Seattle, The City exists, but it's occupants can only be seen at night. They seem to carry on normal lives, but the town is an eerie ghost town by day. New York City, one of the world's major Urban Sprawls, Called an Urban Jungle, truly is now. Many buildings are overgrown with what seems to be almost sapient vegetation. Los Angeles is a barren wasteland, ruled over by its former residents, now all mutated by intense quantum forces. Within the Zones humans do not remain human long, and as such, they avoid the zones. All is not however dark and bleak. Because the Surge receded so quickly much of humanity remains, indeed The nations of the world are largely present, though somewhat diminished in some regards. The interet functions, though Quantum storms over the oceans do sometimes interfere with all sorts of signals. Perhaps the side affect of the Surge that was most unusual, The Rise of the Novas. Humans empowered with the very forces of quantum itself, Immune to the Ambient Quantum of most zones, The wield fantastic superhuman abilities, and through them, Humanity can explore the zones, and defend themselves from the creatures that emerge and attack from the zones. Perhaps the most ubiquitous change has been the proliferation of the Q-scanner, a device that ranges from the size of a cellphone for personal use, with a range of fifty meters, to the massive two ton thirty mile range scanners mounted on ocean-going vessels. Every vessel at sea requires a small detachment of soldiers, armed for repelling most of the known monsters the world has become home to, or, in rare instances, a nova. Most cities have several Q-Scanners, situated around the city to act as an early warning system for Quantum powered threats. In the midst of the chaos and order of the new and old world, there exist many companies who have hired out their staff as security consultants, both nova and human. More than that, thanks to some nova's vastly enhanced intelligence, There's been a boom in technology, allowing humans to better defend themselves, New medicines to treat many diseases, ways to fortify crops against quantum contamination,, as well as the Hypercombustion Engine, which can run on 1/10th the fuel of older internal combustion engines, ten times longer. While this cut down dramatically on demand for fossil fuels it still exists, and Most countries are in the process of shutting down all nuclear plants they operate. The Game- The players are being pulled together, either with a recent offer of employment, highly lucrative in monetary terms, or already employees of Novastorm Technologies. NovaStorm created the Q-Scanner devices, as well as the cure to most forms of cancer, HIV, and several other major diseases plaguing the world. The medical releases were released as open source, available to anyone, free of charge. The Head of NovaStorm is Dr. Calvin Aziz. A Nobel winning Physicist, and subsequently a molecular biologist of great skill since S-Day. Each of you, as novas, were recruited by him personally. His most Fervent wish is to uncover the cause of The Surge, and that is why he has assembled you. You are his troubleshooters, the Team he sends when a job takes a more unconventional approach. Saying that, you do have great latitude in your personal lives. His only condition is that when the small communicator each of you has been given chimes, you answer. When extreme Alacrity is needed, He has retained the services of one of only five novas in the world with the capability to open gateways between locations, but more often than not re relies on each of you to respond arrive in a timely Manner. NovaStar Technologies is Based in Houston, Texas. Character Creation rules 50 np base starting quantum-3 (can be bought no higher than 5) base quantum pool- 50 Characters start with backing 3 in Novastar technolgies for free Starting Taint may not exceed 3 I am allowing powers and enhancements from New Flesh, Forceful Personalities, and Brainwaves, beyond the APG, and core book. Powers from the Teragen book are not allowed. Warp, Transmit, Teleport and Body mod: Improved Attribute are not allowed in this game. If you have any questions ask me in PM, or in chat. ,, each odd dot of a mega att will provide an additional "Free" enhancement (1, 3, 5) One note about zones, there exist zones that ARE harmful to novas, and can actually cause them to gain temporary taint just by being in the zone. However, Quantum offers them some protection, so long as there is quantum in their pool. It is rumored that there is are zones that will literally drain quantum from any source of it, so They can be a threat.
  4. This thread is a fun special project (free xp situation) for you all the players. What I propose is to let each of you create a single zone for the game. A submission is worth 3xp. A submission that I actually use in game, and officially declare Canon, is worth another 3xp. Los Angeles, and New York City are already done, but the rest are open to do. So far Miami, London, and DC are not zone areas. Have fun with this.
  5. Please post all approved character profiles and sheets here. If all characters are posted by 4-11-14, all players will get 3 xp ,,
  6. Calvin Aziz was unusually troubled as morning came to Houston. A great many projects were underway, ranging from the development of a large population sustainable space station, down to quantum research on the root of the Surge, as well as why it caused some to become tainted and twisted monsters, and others it granted fantastic powers as novas. He had just ended a call with the Security Chief of Japan, with a most troubling problem. Four Hours earlier, the Japanese Navy had been conducting maneuvers Southeast of the main Islands, when they detected a massive quantum zone forming. It was the first new zone that had been detected in three years, and Three of Japan's fifteen novas had been deployed to investigate. After ten minutes they lost communication with the team, and within a hour, The 2nd JSDF fleet went radio silent. Since then no contact had been made, and The Japanese government sought assistance from the the leader in quantum studies, even as they began to redeploy their fleets. Within Five minutes, the Secretary of State called, asking Novastorm to send a team with all haste to Japan to investigate this new and obviously dangerous new zone. Satellites were already being moved to focus their sensors on the new zone. With the expo having only been a day prior, Calvin sighed. "Whom shall I send?" The company would be Compensated fully he was sure, one way or another. He quickly typed up a summons to The group of Novas who'd been present at the Expo. They were all still at hand, they would do nicely. By assigning half his nova staff, he was gambling big, putting many projects aside for the moment, but a new zone with such prodigious offensive abilities, it was something they had to unravel fast. "You are to Meet in Conference room Seven in thirty minutes, a debriefing will follow, then deployment of all personnel to the incident." He hit send and sent the text to everyone who'd been at the expo, and sighed. It would be enough. He rose from his desk, and began to make his way down. He called up the one nova he knew he could count on to move so many, quickly. "Transit, I will need your services, likely within 1 hour." "How far?" "Japan." "Not cheap." "It never is, but time is of the essence. I'm assembling my team, It will be two drops, on personnel, the other gear." "Standard rates." "Mary will wire half upfront, half on completion, as always." "A pleasure as always, Cal." The call ended as she hung up, and he sighed, two million in expenses already, and that was before the began talking gear. Using a dataslate, he began the process of assembling gear with a priority for scanning gear, with some offensive weapons in the mix for defense, not all novas were gifted combatants. as it came under his personal code it would all be assembled in the dock, crated and ready within an hour. All that was left now, was to bring the team together.
  7. Kaitlyn smiled politely and made the umpteenth polite social noise as she slipped away from the self-important Senator from New Mexico trying to convince her to start a new company on her own across the state lines. She loved the expo for the chance for novas to show off what they could do and hopefully inspire another year of innovations and solutions to problems across the globe, but she hated the 'groupies' that invariably showed up, pushing selfish or just downright stupid personal platforms. Hell, even the kids that always tried to sneak into the high security labs were more interesting and promising to her than the dozens of petty politicians and narcissistic billionaires that flocked to the Expo just to be seen and thought important. ,, An arm caught her around the waist and pulled her down onto a man's lap. He was dressed in a suit, because she'd insisted, but it was a tie-die suit because so had he. "Here," her husband slipped a flute of sparkling liquid into her hand and chuckled. "Drink this. You look like you've been chewing on lemons again." ,, She leaned up against him and took a few cautious sips of the drink. "Is it that obvious?" ,, "We can go, if you want," he offered in total innocent selflessness. ,, "Uh-huh. You promised me opening and closing day, mister. I'm holding you to it." ,, He kissed her on the neck, not ready to resign himself to a day of 'Yes, my wife and I actually are happily married,' and 'No, it doesn't bother me at all that she's got a successful career and I get to stay home and do whatever I want all day long, because I'm not a Neanderthal, thank you.' Suit required, attitude thrown in for free. "I know something else we could do...." he murmured against her skin. ,, An arched brow looked down on him from her perch on his lap. "Really, that's your ploy this year?" ,, He sighed and gave her an unapologetic shrug. "Well, I couldn't get Dragon Age III released early. I did try." ,, Kait laughed and kissed him. "I know you did and I'm totally taking a day off when it does come out. Now, the buffet is open and the new lines of computers are being demo'd in an hour. Steven got them up and running a week early so we could bug test, and in return once the boring adult demos for the military and corporations are done, he's installed like every game ever on them and we're going to open them up for the kids and the captive spouses to play on as a sort of 'extended demo' for the rest of the day." ,, His face lit up and Kait couldn't help but smile back. "How big are the monitors, again?" ,, "Wall sized," she grinned and stood back up, fortified to wade back into the fray of media frenzy and nova show-offs (hey, that's what the expo was about, right?) again. Daniel scooted out of his seat, taking the empty flute from her, and kissed her goodbye. "Don't forget to eat and drink yourself, okay?" ,, "I wo-" ,, "....Dr. Weaver!" A petite woman with cinnamon skin and fetchingly exotic features bustled over to the couples temporary shelter. Daniel waved and made his escape before he became part of the interview as well. "Jo Seo-young with the South Korea Yonhap News Agency; I'd like to ask you about the exhibitions this year. It looks like there are six new novas debuting this year...." ,, Kaitlyn sighed, pasted on her PR-smile as the woman prattled off her questions non-stop, and reminded herself of all the good that came out of the Expo every year. Also, watching everyone show off was always so cool. ,, Social Thread! So, here's the deal: Each year, Novastorm hosts a show-off expo for their resident novas (and some select others that get special invites) and R&D teams to present the projects they've been working for the year. It's always held the week of April 1st and started in 2010. This is a big international event, lots of press and people looking to impress. Feel free to socialize with each other, making up media/politician/business owner run-ins, and to do a 'showcase' post of your PC showing off for the Expo.
