The game has rules to help the gamemaster manage the interplay between the characters and their world, so that situations can be resolved in a consistent and logical manner, and so you have a specific measure of your character's limitations and abilities.

 About Oroborus
For some the difference in the symbology between merely holding the tail in its mouth and consumption of itself has meaning, with the latter being more esoteric, spiritual and representative of the eternal and regenerative nature of the symbol.
In Psychology, Jung held the Oroborus as an archetype equivalent with the Androgyne, or unity of male and female principles.
The true origin of the Oroborus may be found in the stars, as our galaxy (the Milky Way) has been interpreted to look like a ringed serpent since time immemorial.

 Oroborus Universal Roleplaying
One of the big differences between Challengers and most superhero games is that Challengers made a serious effort to incorporate the super powers system into the skill system or at least into an analog of the skill system, rather than handling them as an entirely separate set of unique abilities.
The paranormal powers system in Oroborus is an outgrowth of this idea, but takes it farther and has integrated and systematized powers even more.
The focus of this campaign is on genetically engineered humans adapted to live in extraterrestrial environments and to survive the dangers of space travel, but the requirements are similar to those for any relatively low-powered superhero campaign.
