I have the book and am currently in the process of translation when I went back to the announcment and saw that it said stuff about altering reality with your character's will or something like that, does anyone know which chapter that is, or if it was cut like the Artifact creation rules were? Its probably been cut, so that the game design team can perpetuate a hopeless no-win scenario for characters to struggle in. Seriously, the most you can hope for as a player is for your character to become a slightly useful pawn in the godlike lives of the feature characters, Powers in the Shadow, and various Organizations.
I realize this is dark fantasy, but.. Wow, some over the top drama in this post. I don't get why people hate on the established powers in Gaia, similar entities exist in almost every "official" setting I have read for any RPG. That is true, but in Anima characters are not expected to become as powerful as in other things. It is possible for a level 5 in this game to lose to a level 1 who gets the drop on them due to the power growth in this game being points per level, with a base of pts.
Most games have geometric progression, as the stats in this game, but I don't really see that here. The difference in power is much greater here, just from the gear, unless you can kill an agent and the armor isn't bio-locked or some such. Further the secret organizations in this game are much further reaching and more active than in most other settings, so you actually have a good chance of having to deal with them. I personally like the games progression, the fact that you will never become unto gods.
However some people want to make decisions, become powerful super beings. Though this would require more than a modified game setting, in my opinion. Well, Sort of. I can say without a doubt that while numerically it seems right, in Anima, those hundred point boosts can mean a lot more, especially to one of the dedicated classes.
They can by level five do some fairly world shaking acts, and can easily become forces to be reckoned with by all but the PitS, who are basically made of GM Fiat anyway, I mean they basically only exist to be a finger wag to the players for attempting to destroy the world. I have myself produced a level 9 Character, mentalist, who basically could have walked into the Templar's very home and watched at they pathetically failed to attempt to hurt him. Only Romero would have given him trouble.
I mean, your power growth is just much more choice heavy in Anima. If you choose to concentrate your power, you will be stronger than a more spread out character In you chosen sphere. Its much less rigid in power scale than another game. Its basically a weapon of immense power, turned up to eleven. In the hands of a master Well thanks for sorta answering my question, i'll just adapt the rules from like Mage which has a similar idea with its Magic system and I do have to agree with Killercloud, dedicated characters can get very powerful my group has so far been surviving on the assistance of our Light path Wizard who has nuked everything with Light beam.
Sorry about that Ejud, I was responding to what the conversation became and have no idea about the original question, I have to wait for the official enlish releases because I don't know any spanish.
Having said that the "god like powers", in my opinion, are only the illuminati, Technocracy, and Imperium. The other secret organizations are just like the organizations in other RPG's. At high levels you can challenge them, you will lose without a plan but they won't win outright.
The imperium, however, is basically untouchable even though it is not controlled by gods thus they don't have as many rules and restrictions. They are too strong to have the activity they seem to have.
If your characters become strong enough to attract their attention then, most likely, you will become their pawn, or at least watched. However, as you pointed out, that is the decision of the GM. Legendary weapons in this game just are not as earth shattering as I am used to. If this is a Mythical weapon But that is also a good thing. A weapon does not define you, it's the characters ability that matters.
I actually prefer the weaker atmosphere, where only gods can destroy half the planet in a swing of their sword. They are talking about the magic spells and psychic matrices namely the matrices. I believe there was additional psychic spells?
This adds Omnipresence to the list, which completes the attributes of God. When you are omniscient possessing all knowledge , and omnipotent possessing all resources and power , the only thing between you and 'God Almighty' is omnipresence to be present at or 'in' everything , which the Powers in the Shadow can do.
This has a lot to do with the nature of magic, consciousness, and reality, but that discussion is a bit too involved to get into here. But perhaps this deicide is what generates the dark fantasy element and its intentionally that way as a plot device?
Don't get me wrong, I really like this game, and I realize that among fans this may sound like very harsh criticism. But I just want to assure you that its just my opinion, and its the reason behind my decision to build what I feel is a balanced milieu on a parallel world to Gaia. The possibility of buying Magic Level with DPs. They're put on a very complex skill tree that comprises 4 branches that are linked to each other.
Developing abilites from that tree is definitely better on my opinion than buying several Paths as they really help you out. Each new "school" of magic casting gives some bonus but also has some hindrance.
Remember that characteristics checks in 2nd ed. This is very useful when you want to create sheets for Sylvain or Daimah of completely non-mystical classes, since it allows you to spend 1 less DP. I didn't give it a second look, by the way. This is VERY useful for all summoners out there.
The opportunity to "Specialize" the Summoner in an Invoker. Tons of new Invocations available A lot of Great Beasts and Powers a summoner can call upon to unleash the most disparate effects. The Incarnations. They are sort of Invocations that require a certain level and make the summoner shapeshift into some important figure of the past for a certain time, granting powers, combat prowness and even high secondaries.
Very nice stuff, indeed, I can tell you. The Shelee. They're Fairies produced from the Inner Magic of anyone. They have to be summoned from within someone and share a life bond with their master. They are particularly powerful as familiars. I actually cut in half the price in Zeon of all their abilities. If you spend 2CP your Familiar is same level as you. If you pay 3CP your Familiar is one level higher. Shelee Essence 1CP - If you have a Shelee or once you have one you may buy it two additional powers from their list.
Mst of them have an incompatible oppsite, but otherwise you may have more than one. For example, if you're extroverse, you have bonus to psychic projection when using powers on others and penalty when using powers on themselves.
Introverse are the opposite. Rituals: they're sort of Level0 spells that people without the Gift may perform. Most of them are almost useless but they're a nice idea anyway and you can always decide to create more. I believe most organizations are even-matched.
Hence monstrosities. Not to speak about Wissenshaft which makes abundant use of Solomon-derived technology. Actually Wissenshaft is that with most potential for the simple reason that it's led by the smartest man on Gaia possibly ever , which is Lucanor Giovanni.
That alone gives it a edge over the others, on my opinion, because when strength is comparable, what makes the difference is organization and intelligence. The matter is Imperium has at its disposal a number of Jurgands, so best thing for high level guys is NOT summoning the interests of Imperium.
As far as I interpret the fluff, Imperium will possibly contact you once you gain level 11 or soon later, if you're pretty powerful. The Imperium will ask you to join its ranks and, if you refuse, your memory of their encounter with them will be erased. For a small period of time the Imperium will probably keep watching over you just to make sure that everything went well with the memory erasement stuff.
After that the Imperium will simply ignore you unless:. Then you become a threat to their secret. Again, Imperium prefers erasing memories where possible instead of sending-out jurgands and godslayers.
Then they send military force to stop you. Again, once they discover this, they won't hesitate to use military strength against you. Actually Lucanor is probably planning something against Imperium, but he's far too smart to take any action without proper information about the enemy and sufficient strength to challenge it, so he's probably made so that Imperium doesn't even know that he knows of their existence. Besides Imperium cannot directly attack him because of the pacts with the Berils and Shajads.
Anyway, the Imperium is secretly aiming to destroy both Shajads and Berils, so if you find some proof of it, both The Ladies of Light and the Lords of Darkness might be interested to help fighting them.
One last thing. If there's a system with immense power growth, than it's Anima. Just to have an idea what we're talking about, download the first Web Supplement for Anima and see the rules of the Lawgivers. And they're standard weaponry for Inquisitors and few other imperial officers On the original question thanks Elric for that summary of the Arcana Exett book, now I know what to translate, it saddens me that they cut the artifact and reshaping reality magic, but ah well. And onto the stuff you said about lawgivers, where are the web supplements for Anima, are they only in Spanish or have they been released in english?
About the web supplements, they're free to download in Spanish from the Edge Entertainment site, if you're subscribed to it. As for the content:.

Regarding the COV virus and its effects: Things are frustrating, and confusing, and scary. People dream up conspiracy theories to help make sense of things. They're not helpful, though, and only serve to make the world more confusing and scarier. We're not going to have that here.
