Panopticon2.jpg
65 KB,
I want to run a Technocracy themed game of Mage: The Ascension. The player's characters will be mid-level members of Convention-controlled government agencies or corporations, unaware of the paradigm, static reality or the timetable. But, for whatever reason, they've begun awakening and showing promise that's caught the attention of Control.

The players get approached separately, given offers of a job at DARPA, as procedure auditors and investigators - their job to go an gather information for their employer about old DARPA projects, evaluate the readiness of new ones, and generally investigate mysteries.

It's the X-files/Fringe, but with a Mage twist.

I want to know if you fa/tg/uys have any cool Technocracy hooks or just plots that you love. Every few sessions is going to be an 'episode' that will hopefully be a self-contained story, and advance each character's meta-plot just a bit as they discover what they really are, and what they're really doing.

Also, anything about the Technocracy that you like, or get inspired by. This is one of my favorites:

>Profession (Cooking)

You are skilled at preparing exceptionally nourishing meals.

Check: Preparing a meal has a DC of 10 (for a decent meal), 20 (good meal), 30 (extraordinary meal), or 40 (legendary meal). You need ingredients, and a suitable kitchen or equivalent work space. Without a proper kitchen, you take -4 on your cooking check. Cooking without ingredients is impossible.

Decent Meal: Pretty standard fare. A decent meal grants the nourished condition

Good Meal: A good meal, the kind you could expect to find in a particularly expensive restaurant or luxurious inn. In addition to the effects of the nourished condition, a good meal grants a +1 circumstance bonus on fort saves for the condition's duration.

Extraordinary Meal: An incredible meal, the like of which most people will experience only rarely, unless they are quite wealthy. In addition to the effects of a good meal, an extraordinary meal grants 1d8 temporary hit points.

Legendary Meal: A meal of legendary quality. As word gets around of your skill, kings will fight to have you in their kitchens, and beings from other planes will seek you out to experience your masterful creations. A legendary meal grants the nourished condition, as well as a +2 circumstance bonus to all saves, and d8 + (Cook's HD) temporary hit points. Such a meal is so good that creatures who taste it can't bear the thought of dying without tasting it again.

Action: Preparing a meal takes one hour, although a particularly intricate or important meal may take longer, at the GM's discretion.

Try Again: Yes, but every time you prepare a meal any ingredients used are consumed.

Nourished

A nourished character can run as if she possessed the Run feat, and is granted a +1 circumstance bonus to Strength and Dexterity based checks, as well as a +4 circumstance bonus vs effects that cause fatigue or exhaustion. Becoming fatigued or doing anything that would cause fatigue removes this condition. Otherwise, it fades after one hour.

That entirely depends on how you show it and how obvious your display is, the illness itself and whether you actually show it or "show" them by just telling the reader through the most obvious display possible that doesn't involve saying "Dave has Autism".

If magic is part of the universe then it is a force that exists objectively.
You cannot have science while ignoring one of the basic forces that shape your universe. Studying magic without also understanding the other aspects of the universe is not going to get you anywhere either.
For example a healing spell would inherently require an intricate knowledge of anatomy. unless it consists of the calling upon other intelligent entities to do the actual work for you.

Not necessarily. Sympathetic magic that relies more upon symbolism and abstract links is perfectly reasonable to have in a setting, and doesn't require that element of intellectualism or actual understanding.

Extremely thought based magic, including variants like magic-as-programming or magic mathematics are cool, but they're far from the only way of doing magic.

It's a nice planet, very earthlike (for our purposes let's make it already terraformed, with our ecology or something similar enough), minerals are there, you have energy to tap: there is only one slight problem, it doesn't have fossil fuels.
Oh, and for our purposes, think of a not really high population of colonists.

Help me build a setting where the last bastions of humanity live in underground cities, safe from the earth's inhospitable surface. Conventional wisdom is that the deeper you are, the better, and cities end up looking like inverted spires with the richest living deep beneath the earth. Food can be grown with hydroponics and power is a cinch thanks to fusion/fission plants. But certain parts can be difficult to replace and disused parts of the city have fallen into disrepair. There are entire systems of tunnels and massive chambers that no longer serve any use.

The only chance for a normal person to see the surface is to join the (mecha)SUIT units who venture above ground on missions of vital importance.


How would the cities be different, what would societies become? What secrets are being kept from the average joe?
