Paragons are the soldiers chosen by the Passions to defend their works and spread their inﬂuence to all corners of Barsaive. They normally organise themselves into military orders headed by an inner core or fraternity and focus primarily on defensive and social Talents.The “Paragon” is designed for Earthdawn Third Edition rules and the 11 pages about the new discipline provide a deep insight into the history of the discipline, new Talents/Knacks and even a sample Paragon character is provided. It was all written by David Marshall who simply send his discipline design to Mongoose as they published it now.
Some of you might say, “hey what do I need a “passion discipline” when the game system already provides Questors?” The chapter “On the Paragon and the Questor” tries answer this question and explains the differences of Questors and Paragons.
All in all it is a very well done discipline description and can enrich your game, so have a look at the Signs & Portents issue # 91 at the Mongoose Signs & Portents archive.
