Bad Art Edition
[Describe Anima here]
Have you prayed to your lord and savior Abel today?
He's not super religious. Come to think of it, neither of the Christian characters are(One got turned into GMPC, is now mostly NPC[think Charlie from Charlie's Angels]).
Probably because one is fairly young(mid-20's) and Imperial. The GMPC/NPC, despite being a Bellano, has no real love for the strict dogmatism of the Azur Alliance OR Gaul for that matter, and would be burned alive anyway for being a practitioner of the occult arts and wizardry.
Never mind the fact that the entire party is on fairly good terms with Erebus' pet Gaira Dragon, Wissenschaft, the Empress(Lilium priestess won Tao Zan, got a meetup), and some members of Tol Rauko.
Christ, what level are the PCs?
Usually? Don't. Unless they do something like become Wissenschaft crows, use the Chimera spell, etc, they should stay between 10 and 20. If it's a high supernatural campaign, maybe once they hit 7 or so, when things start to get really crazy powerful, then consider it, but limit what monster abilities they can now buy with DP or ban that part of the GN increase altogether.
Though if they manage to take down something with like 35 GN, maybe exposure to it's blood/death could give them some monster powers, but YOU decide what those are, NOT THEM.
My two cents, anyway.
Players gaining God-tier stuff without having to spend Ki/Zeon/Risk Fatigue/Death.
Case in point: Special Attack. At Gnosis 25, they could dump 240 DP into the ability to attack everything in an 80-ft area at a distance of 1500 feet, with a base damage of 200, an unlimited number of times a day.
They could also give themselves a +70 to criticals for 70 DP, Ignore 5pts of AT for 30, have a +40 to their Resistances, be flat out IMMUNE to a whole lotta shit, the list goes on.
Also, there's the fact that higher Gnosis grants free Creation Points, which can either be spent on advantages(not actually THAT terrible until GN 35+), or converted into 50 Dev Points per Creation Pt.
