  • Suggestions for some rotes

    I was wondering how to reproduce some powers I saw in games, comics and so on
    Give me your opinions on the spheres needed for these rotes

    1) A rote that ressurrect your body after your death

    2)A rote to devour the minds and the experiences of other people

    3) A rote to know when and where your name has been spoken

    4) A rote to know recognize truth from lies without using mind read

    5) A rote to be always in time

    6) A rote to transfer your consciousness on the internet

    7) A rote to always know where to go to find what you desire

    8) A rote to add, or remove, a news from the media or from a database

    As an added challenge, I am not going to look at HDYDT for advice. This will be pure sphere interpretation.

    This requires turning your body from a matter pattern back into a life pattern at the point of death.

    For the transformation you need Matter and Life. As this is a transformation, Life 4 minimum would be required. The level of matter would depend on how damaged the body becomes. at the point of death could be a simple Matter 2 since not much has changed. If there's a great deal of decay, however, this may go up to Matter 4 to make very specific changes.

    This is a contingency effect, therefore we require Time 4. Entropy 1 would also be required for the contingency effect to contain the "after death" clause.

    So, that's Life 4, Matter 2-4, Time 4, Entropy 1 for the bare minimum of post death ressurrection.

    If you wanted to preserve your memories then Mind 4 would be necessary to carry them across. If you wanted to keep your avatar then Prime and Spirit would be necessary. Spirit 4 and Prime 4 should be sufficient, since Spirit 4 is needed for stuffing spirits into things, and Prime 4 is required for moving around large dollops of quintesence around. But an argument can be made for requiring Spirit 5 or Prime 5 for especially powerful avatars.

    So at the extreme end, that's Life 4, Matter 2-4, Time 4, Entropy 1, Mind 4 Spirit 4-5, Prime 4-5

    Mind 5 would be required to rend one's mind from their target's body. For the devouring part, that depends on how you mean. If you mean literally to eat it, then probably a combination of Matter 2 and Life 2 to turn it into something edible. To turn it into quintessence you would need Prime 4, as that is what is needed to rend quintesence from life patterns.

    Without a doubt, Corr. Time and Entropy will be a core component of this spell. Corr for the where, Time for the when, and Entropy for the event of your name. Since this is all sensory stuff, I'd say 1 rank in each would suffice for such a spell

    Entropy 1 would allow that. Ring of Truth is a pretty standard rote. I'd argue how this works depends on paradigm more than anything, but I've decided to keep complications like paradigm to a minimum with something as general as these questions.

    That's just straight up Time 1's Perfect Time rote.

    You've got two options for that one. The first is going all Digital Web 2.0, grabbing some VR goggles and using Corr 2 to get online, the second is a form of astral projection, meaning it requires Mind 4. Arguably you could also do it with Spirit 3 and find the back door entrance to the internet via the spirit realm, but that would be a really roundabout way of doing it.

    Entropy 1 should have you covered for that.

    Uh... computer hacking skills? I need a few more details on this one to know exactly what you're asking for.
