Wealth Level Calculation

  • +2 - Reliable

Usage

Friends, employees, armies. This machines can make you someone for almost any task.

Flavor Suggestions & Settings

  • The newest toy on the market has led to children raising armies and pitting them against each other!
  • Jobs are no longer worked by citizens, only by the creations of the great machine. Nobody ever asked their thoughts on that.
  • Wars are waged with lives replaceable. Nobody even cares for a pretense anymore, they just like seeing the expendables break each other.
  • The regime's numbers are endless, but only thanks to their machines. With only one measely factory, you need only aim for one target.

Alternate Options

You could give your players a short couple questions before the machine begins an invoke to allow them some degree of influence over the resulting stats, instead of leaving it out of their hands entirely.

GM Concerns

While there are restrictions on how much control players have over the stats of the creatures the machine makes, note that without some time-based pressure or external limit on how much they can use this, they can make arbitrarily large numbers of Animations. Also, the automatic Genesis allows for bypassing of Animation's material cost, so of you intend to use material as a limiter, it might be preferable to give them a slightly broken machine, rather than a fully functioning version right off the bat.
