    Correspondence 2 for being able to hear someone from the other side of the building?

      Prime 2, Spirit 1 is what it is needed in M20 to detect an Awakened Avatar. Correspondence cause you quite likely don't have line of sight with every possible mage at the venue.

        Couldn't it be just Mind 3 with the possibility of Correspondence 2, and be able to be used in regard to any person, not just another Mage? Possibly with Forces 2 or Prime 2 needed to mute the conversation for other persons. (Prime 2 cause I think Prime should be able to affect phenomena like sound or scent.)

          This rote came up in my game for the express purpose of a large group of mages (who didn't necessarily know each other) having a meeting in a loud public venue. So this rote is simply tailored to a very specific circumstance.If one had a clear idea of which individuals should or shouldn't be part of the conversation, one would indeed require less spheres.

            Decipher Notes [Mind 3] This Procedure of the New World Order requires notes - which can be handwritten, printed, or digital - of a person. Using the notes as a focus, the Technocrat locks on the person in question and glimpses understanding of the notes, including overcoming any ciphers used. More successes scored result in a greater amount of information. This Procedure is almost always Coincidental - after all, a lot could be guessed from a few pages somebody left behind.

              Form of the Succubus [Life 5] The Mage assumes the alluring and beautiful form of a mythological temptress. (Or tempter - the Mage can opt to assume the form of an Incubus) Her body is made shapely and attractive to an impassible degree, her feet end in cloven hooves, nails become more akin to talons, wings sprout from her back, and horns grow from her head. Despite these changes the Mage is still recognizable to those who know her. She gains three dots to spend between Social Attributes per success in this Rote. With Prime 3 added, Attributes can exceed scores of 5. This form lasts for a scene. With Prime 2 and Forces 3 added, flight is possible. Nowadays, this Rote is almost always Vulgar. Whether the Mage becomes a Succubus or an Incubus is their own choice - it is not predisposed to the Mage's sex or gender.

              Obviously, this Rote is very useful for improving the carnal matters of the Mage. Unfortunately, using this Rote among the Traditions and the Technocracy certainly creates grounds for a lengthy and extensive investigation into the Mage, if not for outright accusations of Infernalism. On the other hand, it is extremely useful for a Demonologist as an aid in negotiations and confrontations with beings from below.

                Grab a Dealer [Correspondence 3] This refinement of Filter All-Space seeks out a dealer of illegal psychoactive substances. No matter whether they are a seedy part-timer peddling weed on streets, or a dealer of cocaine selling to high-class clients, the Magick of this Rote breaks through space to home in on their position and make them known to the Mage. This Rote is obviously the keepsake of many Ecstatics, who teach it to those in the Traditions who show honest desire and aptitude. Technocrats - from the Syndicate and the Progenitors - each have their own Hyperscience variant.

                  Metal Check [Matter 1] This Rote scans the target person for any firearms she or he might have. More successes give an indication of type, whether they are loaded (and with what), and any deficiencies, idiosyncrasies, or enhancements (including magickal) that the firearms might have.
                  Technocrats from the Syndicate are known for using this Rote often; not necessarily because they worry about guns, but cause they respect persons who pack the heat.

                    Perceive Higher Paranoia [Mind 2 or Mind 3] This Procedure of the New World Order is a superb tool that allows a Technocrat to read thoughts and feelings of persons in regard to perhaps one of the most valuable kinds of information - the thoughts of a person has in regard to the New World Order itself. As a focus for this Procedure, a conversation needs to be struck with the target on the topic of conspiracies, plots, worries etc. The smallest idiosyncrasies in a person's speech and behavior provide the Technocrat with leverage through which she or he accesses the target's mind in regard to the NWO.

                    The Mind 3 version allows for more distinct information to be learned, while the Mind 2 version scans the target for fleeting and relatively vague impressions.

                      Psychiatric Tracking [Correspondence 2] - Progenitors sometimes replace (with aid of the NWO, if needed) psychiatric medication with slightly altered versions of the same pills. These substances, if ingested for at least a week or two, give Progenitor Technocrats a Correspondence Link to the person.
                      While no self-respecting Traditions' Mage would willingly take psychiatric medication, this Procedure is invaluable for influencing (and experimenting on) members of the Masses.

                        Seek out the Big Fish [Correspondence 3] - this Procedure of the Syndicate locates persons who are in charge of and are profiteering from unlawful activities which are part of the so called criminal underworld. The Hyperscience behind this Procedure works by following the trail of laundered money, violence, and broken laws that such figures leave behind them. The focus for this Procedure includes questioning victims of crimes, as well as the local gangsters and made men, and analyzing police records; and then inputting the gathered data into technocratic devices.
                        Some Mages outside of the Syndicate have claimed that they too can perform such a Correspondence search, but it has to be noted that Syndicate's affinity with both organized crime and money makes this Procedure more efficient than the efforts of other Technocrats and Mages.
