** There is also the Apokalypsi 2 universal translator which gives translator microbes to everyone is range. You can make a universal translator the size of a CPU tower that has a range large enough to cover the earth. While it doesn't give you godmode it would make a HUGE impact on the setting and completely mess with the masquerade. A starting character can build this.

* CriticalResearchFailure: These sorts of theories are the principles on which Wonders [[MagicPoweredPseudoscience supposedly]] operate. [[GenreSavvy Many Geniuses realize]] this is not how things ''actually'' work. Fortunately, belief in their explanatory theory isn't as important as the fact that they ''supply'' an explanatory theory and build their devices accordingly.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Applicability}}: Tons.
** The Foundations each represent one cool thing mad scientists do, and one reason sane people fear mad scientists. The Artificers for example are the guys who build awesome stuff and the people who force everyone else to adapt to new technology. Whether they like it or not.
** The Baramins each represent one common way intellectual thought goes horribly wrong. The Atomists for example are people who try and force technological solutions to social or political issues.

* CrazyAwesome: Any awesomeness in the setting will likely be crazy by default. That goes for events as well as characters.

* CrazyAwesome: Any awesomeness in the setting will likely be crazy by default. That goes for events as well as characters. Just to illustrate, this is a game allowing you to play {{Mad Scientist}}s who can bend the law of physics through their madness, visit an underground world populated with dinosaurs, time travel, and fight things such as [[AlienInvasion Martians]], [[StupidJetpackHitler Nazi Mad Scientists]] and TheReptilians.

** Even Clockstoppers are sort of pitiable. It's not their fault they're spite-fueled avatars of ignorance. [[WildMassGuessing Probably]].
* NightmareFuel: Some Geniuses deliberately style their Wonders to be creepy looking, whether to intimidate observers or [[NightmareFetishist just because they like the look of it.]]
** Not to mention that, being [[CloudCuckooLander a bit ]][[NightmareFuelStationAttendant odd,]] Staunens can get like this:
-->"So I spend a lot of time staring at the sky, and not looking at your face and thinking about [[ItMakesSenseInContext squirrels.]]"

Added DiffLines:

*CompleteMonster: [[ScienceIsBad Walking-Man]] is the most infamous of the [[EvilLuddite Clockstoppers]], and one of the most powerful. Targeting small, isolated communities, Walking-Man uses his CompellingVoice to take control of the town, has mobs eliminate anyone who might object, and then disposes of the town's leaders, [[SinisterMinister taking on that role himself]]. Forcing people to abandon their modern conveniences, Walking-Man drives the communities he rules farther and farther back in time, finally sending them into the wilderness, unclothed and unarmed, to die, while he searches for his next target. Having DrivenToSuicide communities in Idaho, Nebraska, and Colorado, Walking-Man continues to ply his trade across all three states, preaching his anti-technology gospel to any who are susceptible—although his relationship with [[MadScientist Lemuria]] would indicate his hatred of technology does not [[{{Hypocrite}} go as deep]] as [[StrawHypocrite he might pretend]].
