Hey, shenanigans! The Haunted Tank was a Silver Age character!

Also, I'm guessing their version of Omnipotent Mystic is more based on guys like the Spectre or anyone invented by Fletcher Hanks.

Next time: Characters.

Audience participation time! I need three characters: a wizard of some variety. A non-wizard of some variety. A less important non-wizard.

Tell me who they are.

A French wizard who tears bleeding teleportation holes in reality. A Spanish knight with tons of panache. An Englishman who does useless Bard crap.

Unveiled Threats would be a great little break kinda thing. If you're going to avoid talking about the multi-page breaks of just 'this gun is cool, this gun is cool, this gun is slightly cooler' then I'm sure you can bang it out in a couple posts, but the stuff worth focusing on is totally insane.

Meikyuu Kingdom has to be the absolutely weirdest RPG setting I've ever seen. I don't think any other premise comes close to "one day, suddenly everything was dungeons."

Rifts and TORG are pretty close, actually. MK offers an elegant simplicity, however, that makes it far easier to grasp.

The Bogomils view themselves as champions of the poor against feudalism and the monopoly of wealth and learning held by the Church. They seek to subvert both royal and Church authority via passive resistance and philosophical anarchy right on up to militant action. They are evangelical, traveling far and wide to preach, heal and drive out demons. Their missionaries inspired other movements, such as the Cathars. Bogomils are not Christian but are a Divine faith, and Bogomil missionaries often have powers comparable to the Perfecti MYthic Companions, save trading Transcendence for either Intervention or Adjuration.

Well, yeah. That's exactly why you'd want to use it on a non-biped synth. Scare arachnopobes even more badly! Create rumours of horrible, fleshy spider-exsurgents running around the outskirts of the settlement/habitat/ship full of stoners that you're trying to do horrible, sneaky things to. Or just do it because it's funny, and its intended effects just aren't going to work for a morph that falls outside the accepted silhouette of your average biomorph.

Are you suggesting that PCs should pull a lifelike mask off an unknown horror from beyond the stars to find out that it was really Old Man Jenkins trying to scare people away from his hidden smuggling operation in the abandoned amusement park?

Just thought of another use for Share Taste: losing weight. You cast it on somebody eating unhealthy but tasty food and then eat whatever diet greul you need to lose weight. The shared taste masks the taste of the healthy food. You could probably use science to imitate this psychic power in Eclipse Phase too:

Tread carefully, for down this path lies the lesbian sex scene in the Ghost in the Shell manga.

At least Shirow gave a reason for the lesbian sex: a lack of desire to draw men's butts unwanted feedback from phantom organs, so only same-sex experiences could be looped in that way.

Young Freud posted:

Actually, heat hawks and rods use a condensed, localized Minovsky field in conjunction with spent plasma from the reactor. That's why Char's heat hawk can deflect the Gundam's beam saber and thus be somewhat equal in a fight.

Pssh. That's head canon to explain an animation goof. Errbody knows plasma contained in a dense Minovsky field is what beam sabers themselves are made of.
