Brotherhood Iconic Careers

posted Oct 16, 2015 12:35:10 by ChristofferLundberg
I am a bit confused about the Messenger, Hunter and Student of the Art iconic careers. Are they available in all eras of play? I know the icons are there to indicate which eras they are available in, but the text, for me, is contradictory.

Also, from my interpretation, Brotherhood Educated and Brotherhood Apprenticeship should not exist in the first era?

The careers in the Brothers chapter of the Brotherhood sourcebook exist only in the Dark Symmetry era - they represent pre-Brotherhood characters and early-Brotherhood characters which become redundant in later eras.

Brotherhood Educated and Brotherhood Apprenticeship should only exist in the Dark Legion and Dark Eden eras - the infrastructure and institutions that allow those education options don't yet exist in the Dark Symmetry era.

Consider these to be the official word on the matter, as I wrote background and rules for that book.

Nathan, got another question:

Is the Mystic iconic career from the core book replaced by all the mystics in the Brotherhood book? (Warrior, Healer etc.)

No. Unless specifically noted, iconic careers in sourcebooks don't replace those in the rulebook (though, as noted in the Mishima and Capitol books, there might be some modifications).

Consider the rulebook Mystic to be a generalist, while the various ones in the First Directorate chapter are specialists.
