  3. >> Join us here << Technocracy Reloaded peels back the curtain and examines the role of the Technocracy in Mage: The Ascension 20th Anniversary Edition. The various future fates presented in Mage 20 are examined, and this book introduces a few of its own. Within this book you will also find a detailed look at life within the Technocracy; expanded information on the conventions; a wealth of equipment, adjustments, and procedures; a breakdown of the various shadow conspiracies and factions within the Technocratic Union; and tips for running your own Technocracy chronicle. This Technocracy Reloaded Kickstarter campaign is designed to enable us to create a deluxe hardcover edition of this supplement, designed to match the look and feel of our other 20th Anniversary Editions, and specifically the Mage: The Ascension 20th Anniversary Edition. We want to create a deluxe edition with a leatherette cover featuring the title of the book on the spine, 200+ full-color interior pages, and a silk ribbon bookmark. The cover will feature an embossed image of the Technocracy symbol. Exceptional funding will allow us to further develop the setting and provide additional materials for play. >> Prepare for integration here, Citizen <<

  6. Catherine Barras See that child hanging out with Sean this morning ? I heard he's his little brother, but the parents abandonned him in the woods cuz they didn't want another male in the family. Catherine is some super-smart French boy who's actually, like 12, but skipped lots of grades. Are you sure he's a boy ? I could swear it's a chick. Must be a Cassidy. Catherine is a midget. Catherine is dating Sean. Catherine's dad is some freelance merc hired by the government. Catherine's dad is a serial killer. He's been here for a dozen years, he looks cool but doesn't speak a lot about himself. I bet Tess is his next target. Catherine is a leprechaun, when he is old enough he'll start to grow a beard. Catherine is Ms. Kyleson's nephew. Guys, where have all the cafeteria snacks gone ?
  7. Are you stuck indoors and need something to do? Onyx Path has you covered. The PDF for Vampire 20th Anniversary Edition: The Dark Ages is free today! It’s 1242. The Mongol army crushed Baghdad, then Russia under its heel, then moved on to devastate Poland and Hungary. The Holy Roman Empire stood to war with the Papacy. The second Lombard League wielded the word of the Pope and fought off Frederick II. The War of Princes rages. Patricide looms. Young powers look up the ladder to the next rungs, and see stagnation and hypocrisy. They see targets. When they look down, they see humanity. They see a power that could change everything. They see mortals organizing into universities and empires. In the mortal world of 1242, power shifted at the rate an army marched. For the undead, power shifts faster than a fire overtakes a haven. To the Damned, power flows as fast as blood from an ancient heart. Vampire 20th Anniversary Edition: The Dark Ages is a storytelling game of horrific power. Featuring 13 clans and 19 bloodlines, this volume spans the Dark Medieval World. Contains full rules for play, inspired by Vampire: The Masquerade Twentieth Anniversary Edition. Features new and updated player options, including a brutal new system for Koldunic Sorcery.

  9. Zombies aren’t the only problems survivors have in the wastelands. Hell is other people, but some folks don’t neatly sit on one side or the other of the “undead abomination” line. There are those who aren’t quite undead, but aren’t quite living either. These cannibalistic raiders comprise another collection of antagonists for your player characters to struggle against. In nearly all creatures that walk the wastelands, a spark exists that enables them not only to survive, but to do so earnestly, with eyes facing the future despite the sins of their past. But in this bleak world, desperation grows paramount. One tragedy can lead survivors on paths riddled with horror, and tragedies are all too common nowadays. In the face of that agony, eating people becomes a little more convenient. Then the question of searching for bodies is answered by hunting them down instead, with other like-minded things that are not truly animals but definitely not people. These “survivors” go on to develop heinous conventions about how to eat flesh, how to harvest it, and how to process it. But the entire time, their brains are ill-equipped to perpetrate these horrors. In a final search for amity, they unite with others who have fallen into this abyss, to turn such acts into conventions, and then to turn conventions into dark and terrible cultures of rage and hate. In the dark depths of their minds, that spark to survive goes out. It is replaced by a drive to do nothing more than exist, and in the wastelands, existence is monstrous. Therein lies the truth of the matter; that you are one bad day away from becoming just another terrifying raider. Across the wastelands, individuals and communities alike are regularly assaulted by the unreasoning cannibals known as raiders. Driven insane by the weight of their deeds and the infection inside the meat they consume, they are warped into a force of nature, comprised of countless beings who are beyond redemption. Bestial, ravenous, utterly amoral, and downright petrifying, entire clans are composed of these genetic abnormalities. Within the cultures they have grown, each clan is unique in expression, traits, and tactics. Those who deviate are killed and eaten. But those who survive can transform their clans into something worse than before. As cannibalistic people, their diet of infected meat is crucial to survival. Without it, raiders cannot heal over time and perish from starvation. But if they eat enough, they are remade with forms like the Strains, allowing for more insidious plots to hatch among their clans. Due to their reliance on the infection though, they do not pass through the Grave Mind like survivors. They are remade without consequences and view those who return with trauma as a greater threat than the undead. For all their crimes, raiders cannot be redeemed. Due to the concentration of the infection inside their bodies, raiders have become reliant on it and will die if they do not eat enough. All attempts to reform them have failed, for they are now different from all the other strains. No longer people, they are the monsters of the wastes, wholly separate from the all-too-common undead.
  10. I'll go with a Togruta Gray Jedi, but I have to work around a decent custom template yet (it'll probably fit Noir's "poorly trained jedi" idea since I don't want no OP character, where would be the fun ?)
  11. I've been a bit busy these last days, but I'll work on a post for sure. Looks like weird stuff is happening, I can't miss that.
  12. I feel you. I spent my whole childhood reading books, gaming and being a roleplayer without really knowing what a roleplayer is at the times. There is nothing as wholesome as a good story/game scenario. Hell, I cried at the end of AC:Brotherhood. Even the stupid stuff Rexzilla uploads on Youtube, him and his buddies fooling around in Star Citizen, moves me sometimes.
  13. I mostly played Elite:Dangerous and really like the Frame Shift Drive concept. Eats a bit of fuel and basically drives you from stellar system to stellar system, locking on the highest mass (generally the biggest star).
  14. I didn't quite see if this has been answered. I read real quick through all of this thread though. From what I understood, we kept the same Earth for before the Storm. What comes after ? Political changes in-game to allow us to keep our heads cool ? I don't care much about politics if you ask me, so I can take whatever comes, I'm just being curious here.
