As promised, my elan creations...I'll post them little by little because I'm translating few little things from Italian to English (because for a time in my life I was lazy enough to write something in Italian rather than English) and it requires some time.

 

Before I start let's say that most Elans refer to the Pantheons of religions described in Gaia, which I consider inferior to Shajad/Beryls as represented by the fact that Pantheons confer powers AS A WHOLE and only 1 fixed power per 10 points of Elan.

 

The fist Elans I'm presenting though are the Grey Ones, which I invented on my own. They are seven higher gods of the same "specie" of Beryls and Shajads who decided to remain neutral during the War of Heaven. They became deities of extremely neutral concepts and have been extremely unactive since the war between gods but have recently started to gain contact with Gaia, through Synchronization with mortals.

THERE’S NO GOD

The character can perceive Elan and Gnosis in other people, becoming able with the use of this power to distinguish between different synchronizations and to quantify roughly the Elan Level of individuals. The character can, at will, momentarily subtract half his Elan Level from the Elan Level of any other individual, weakening his/her Elan powers. Targets must pass a PhR check against a difficulty equal to this character’s Elan Level +80 to avoid the effects. The power does not actually affect Elan, but only its use, and remains active for a number of days equal to the Failure Level, or until its targets distance themselves from the user by a number of km equal to this character’s Elan Level. This effect can only be used once per minute on a single individual. The character can also at will decrease the Gnosis of other beings by 5 points for each 50 points of his/her Elan Level. A creature retains all its Essential Abilities and Creature Powers even if his/her Gnosis drops below the necessary level, but Gnosis-related powers, such as Auspice or Avatar, will momentarily disappear if the Gnosis drops below the required value. Targets must pass a PhR check against a difficulty equal to this character’s Elan Level +80 to avoid the effects. The power remains active for a number of turns equal to the Failure Level, or until its targets distance themselves from the user by a number of km equal to this character’s Elan Level.

Figured I might as well put ask this now, even after so long. With the Path of Ascension Elan, who are you referring to when you mention following the path of an ascended? Is it the people that went on to become incarnations after death or was it someone else? I'm Interested in having a character use that Elan path so figured I should get some more details.

Religion of the Ascended is described in the Gaia rulebook. As a general rule, Ascended are specific individuals (about 30 are known in the history of Gaia) that somehow achieved "godship" during their life. Marcushias (the one from Phaion) and Selene (the founder of the killer sect) are a couple of examples given by the book itself. As I rule it, the Path to Ascension can be achieved with different approaches. One is following the steps of an Ascended somehow imitating him and trying to achieve godship like that, the other one is carving one's own path (at master's discretion)...and of course by sacrificing an enormous achieved power (100% synchronization with an higher power) to become a source of power by one's own self.

 

As for the "classical" path to ascension (imitating an Ascended), consider that there have been almost 30 of them, so there could possibly be the most different kinds of "Ascended". Although that's not official, in my Gaia setting Malekith is an Ascended who reached 100% synchronization with Erebus and sacrificed it to become an Ascended. In my setting he retained the Erebus Avatar power, since he chose to set and spend most of his existence in the Wake. I also invented one from Manterra...a sort of "luchador-styled-two-handed-axe-wielder-Zorro", who defended the locals from the abuses of christian invaders. Since there are at least 30 Ascended, you can quite easily invent your own.

Hey! Your work is very rigorous Elric, and I love it! I was just wondering about balance, aren't a few of these Pantheons granting gifts stronger than the shajads and beryls? For instance the full elan level to all intellectual secondaries.
