Have any of you ever played or heard of the RPG called Mage: The Ascension.
The movie was directly influenced from it. Just with a few things changed.
The basic concept is a bunch of mages fighting for control of reality (In
our time). Mages are awakened humans who realize that reality can do there
bidding. Thus with enough power, they can make reality do whatever they
wish. Stop bullets in mid air, speed themselves up, turn someone into
light energy. What does this really have to do with the topic? Well
essentially it is a far cry from Gundam, since the supernatural element is
far weaker in Gundam. That and I just thought it might be cool to point out
the Matrix's concept. Sorry about the OT.
