I'm in favor of more of a "You are not, and never were, a human. You are just wearing a cheap human disguise, you weren't born a human and remembered it later or anything."

Why are you, a Kraken, wearing a cheap human disguise? gently caress it, you like doritos. It's very difficult to purchase and eat doritos as a giant squid-monster. Also you like not being attacked with torpedoes and depth charges.

I like the idea of beasts just hiding in plain sight for their own protection, gently caress trying to predate on humans they got bombs and poo poo.

So wait, given that heroic actions get rolled against the Doom, that means that aside from oppressing the peasants to keep their Inspiration down, the nobles are actively incentivized to make the world a shittier place, because now they're harder to overthrow. And they know this. Really gives me a bit of a Brandon Sanderson vibe. What a cool system.

The Marvel Universe RPG (the diceless one from the early 2000s) tried to use this for time and movement. It was a clever idea, the problem was that the book was so poorly edited that the terms "panel" and "page" became interchangeable. Goddamn that book was a hot mess.

If the book can't even consistently describe a panel as "several quick actions" and a page as "one short combat" , then what good is it?
My point about the thread's design-by-committee being superior to many paid RPG writers stands.

Hyperbrains are better implemented in Progenitor:
One is a bit of an anarchist, developing technologies to improve mankind's lot without tying himself to any one government.
One creates a third superpower in the cold war.
The lesser hyperbrains have lesser effects on history.
One creates a hypermeme that makes legalisation of weed more acceptable, because she wants to export it to the U.S.
