    Shorty's correct in that being a terrible example though. Europe was on the verge of World War One for decades before it actually happened. Every couple of years there was another crisis on the same level, if not a greater one, as the death of the Archduke. World War One was a product of a series of systematic alliances and massive post industrialization changes upsetting the delicate balance of power for an entire continent.

    However, on the flip side of that, delaying WWI by a couple of years would have caused massive changes. Most of the countries involved probably would've continued on the same paths they were following prior to the war, which is mostly inconsequential (France declines, Germany militarizes, England trims their mustaches), but could have also invoked the Russian Revolution in the first year of WWI, which could have made a huge difference in how the war turned out, with Russia/USSR pulling out significantly earlier.

  • StraightziStraightzi Here we may reign secure, and in my choice, To reign is worth ambition though in HellRegistered User regular
    I mean, I'm a dick, so I'd just destabilize the whole thing with some paradoxes if I was running the game where that happens. The changes in WWI lead to a different treaty being signed, a different treaty which doesn't fuck over Germany so much, there is no WWII, there is no baby boom following WWII, your parents never existed.

    Causality is fun.

    Oh yeah, I'm being far from comprehensive in what I'm talking about here.

    the universe would make sure you were born and in a position to do this anyway

    it's already got it written in the description fo the power that major magical shit like ascensions can't be undone by altering history, the universe will make sure the same people are in the same place at the same time to ascend under the same conditions

    it's not that far of a leap to "it also provides for you to be able to do this in the first place"

    The Bibliomancer of the group would have huge boners for this sort of thing.

    Yes, a type of mage all about acquiring book based knowledge, while sacrificing their own significant memories.

    Get a minor charge by forgetting about an important conversation you had, gain a major charge by forgetting someone significant in your life.

    Sure, you start out using it as a form of therapy by turning all those horrible memories into something useful, but you get addicted to the power, and then you're forgetting about your parents, your spouse, perhaps your kids.

    Oh, neat!

    I mean, you can still massively destabilize the present with any changes to history within those restrictions, but it takes a bit more creativity.

    I mean, given the setting, let's roll back to my no more WWII level, and then, let's say Japan doesn't get involved in a conflict with the United States, leaving them free to conquer large swathes of the Asian continent, with Hirohito becoming a literal god through his purified belief and the belief of the Japanese people.

    I think Japanese PanAsia is enough damage, right?

    that's not really how ascension works though so i mean

    dude would still be a dude, who'd die just like anyone else

    most of the avatars who aren't literally the next in line to ascend are regular dudes who die like anyone else

    ascension isn't just "people think you specifically are a thing"

    it's that you, your beliefs, your actions, your everything, embody some sort of archetype

    the dude who wants to be the heisenberg messenger carries a bunch of cell phones, receives constant updates from all sorts of news sources, speaks multiple languages, never tells an outright lie (omission doesn't count, the heisenberg messenger is all about spin), and wears nike sneakers at all times because....i forget what the symbolism was

    point is, this guy has lived and breathed the thing he wants to be for decades, and he's still not close

    ascension isn't nearly as simple as "i think i'm a god, you think i'm a god, i'm a god"

    I caught the rat; got a picture and everything, but it's slightly morbid seeing a helpless rodent with his face stuck to a glue trap so I'll spare you all.

    Now lets talk about the parts of Unknown Armies that'll make everyone not want to play it.

    Sex mages. They gain charges by having anonymous sex, empty sex. And lose their powers by having any kind of meaningful sex. One of the 'artifacts' of the game is a porn video where the main porn star ascended to sexgodhood halfway through a scene.
