    There's even a pretty good "risk of power" hook built in with Fatebindings, even moreso once you get into Demigod territory.

    You discovered ancient mysteries revealing to you a relic granting you a purview, but in the process you are now Fatebound to Minotaur as your Nemesis, mix and match as desired.

      MoroseMorgan I'm embarrassed to admit I hadn't thought of a Fatebind taking place like that, you gave me a nuance to be mindful of. Much thanks!


      Reality is a matter of perception, challenging one's own or that of others is not a crime, it is a service.

        Yeah, I'm not a big XoD or Mage person, but the machinations of Fate sound like a reasonable analog to Paradox, if that is even from the same Mage.

          In Mage the Ascension, Paradox is reality pushing back against the mage. In Mage the Awakening, Paradox is the magic running wild when the mage attempts to do too much. As I think I said earlier, those two games and Scion each have their own specialities; and Fate is very much Scion's counterpart to the other two games' Paradox.
