"The Generic / Modern setting fits into a wide variety of genres. Almost any type of adventure involving everyday humans set in the 21st century can be played using characters created with these paths. As humans have not changed much in the last 10,000 years and will probably be the same in 10,000 years, many paths will also fit with historical and future settings. "
