Justin OOC Posted July 30, 2015 Share Posted July 30, 2015 This is an idea I've had for quite some time, so bear with me. What I propose is to run an aberrant game that's more fun than rules heavy, and hopefully enjoyable for everyone. It is 2020, Five years after the Genesis Cascade. What is the cascade? Glad you asked. in 2015 a new type of energy was discovered, which could be the first fully clean renewable source of power for the world, capable of meeting the planets energy needs. Unfortunately the energy's interaction with the world's various nuclear reactors. In conjunction with them, the energy cascaded, rejuvenating the world in profound ways, barren lands became verdant savannah and marshlands. Perhaps most shocking, life that that was long extinct returned, seemingly overnight. Insects 100 times the size of the modern versions, massive forests and jungles overgrowing major cities, and last and not least, the Great Dinosaurs, returning after a sixty five million year hiatus. Of course many land mammals returned, and even birds like the dodo. The Land, Sea, and Sky all boast new life, new dangers for what remains of humanity. In the first year over half of humanity perished. Research quickly lead to the reactors of the source of the cascade effect and to that end humanity has spent much effort to shut down all nuclear reactors on the planet. While the loss of life is appalling and tragic, new hope did survive. Technology was not lost, but much was interrupted, there were upheavals, but the United States Endures even with the loss of Washington. This is due in part to a new development for humanity, Homo Novus. simply put, some members of humanity, roughly 1 in every one million, have gained special superhuman powers. Most novas as they are called are only slightly over human norm, but each possesses gifts which help them deal with the new state of the world. The United states was among the best prepared for this, and the worst, in some ways, and quickly began to gather up those with powers to form emergency response teams to deal with the situations that arose. After five years, the world still turns, and many people have adapted. Still there is much work to do to ensure humanity endures, and adapts to this new world. In closing you the players, will be one of these crisis response teams, formed roughly six months before game start (better than a six week thread assembling you all I should think) make the character you want to play, I will tailor the game to it. I do intend this to be an action oriented game, so bear that in mind. The character generation rules are standard aberrant with the following changes starting quantum is 3, this is also the max to start. starting pc's have 15 np to spend. There is No taint in this game, at this time. Aberrations may be taken as flaws. Animal Mastery is hearby raised to a level 3 power, considering its power in this game. I reserve the right to amend rules as I need to, to preserve game balance, and to maintain the fun of all players. Please post interest here in this thread. With that said, I welcome you all to Aberrant: The Genesic Age. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
