I’ve created a PARAGON playset called SURGE PROTECTORS. It is an homage to Saturday morning cartoons about transforming robots and now, as of patch 1.2 it’s also about rock bands with holographic technology.
It’s a barebones playset that replaces divine favor with components like photonic carbines and nexus drones.
There are two bits of new tech though (albeit pretty small changes). The sacrifice phase is replaced by Uplink where you send any captured WIRE EMPIRE codes back to the Seer, your leader in the MetalWarp dimension. Because the gods don’t really resist sacrifices, they don’t include the Strife Level in AGON, but in SURGE PROTECTORS the WIRE EMPIRE is trying to intercept those codes, and they gain an intercept die if you suffer during the contest.
Also, I made a slightly different format for Islands with a basic premise and a list of possible trials. It is the kind of short form I would use when making notes before a game and might be useful when making islands/incursions of your own.
Here it is:
It is 1984 and the Earth is under attack from a silent invader.
EMPERIONS, mechanoids from the MetalWarp dimension, use their Gravimetric Beacons to launch INCURSIONS into our reality. Emulating our technology they hide among us, slowly siphoning Earth’s natural resources to fuel their conquest of MetalWarp and fulfill an ancient prophecy of destruction, THE SURGE.
Humanity as we know it would perish if not for their own champions—rogue Metalwarp defenders who have pledged to protect the earth from INCURSIONS by their own kin—the SURGE PROTECTORS!
SURGE PROTECTORS is a shapeshifting robot defenders playset for the PARAGON system from the AGON roleplaying game. A copy of AGON is required to play. For more on the PARAGON system, including how to publish your own playsets, visit AGON-RPG.com.
