  • How would Technocrat training be about going into a unknown horzion realm?

    It’s for a online quest/story I’m writing. The plot is that a N.W.O agent gets lured into a what they would call a Horizon Realm, what does the Technocracy teach its members about “Inter-dimensional science”

    Since it's an NWO agent he would be told everything he needs to know to accomplish his mission, compartmentalizing info is a NWO hallmark.

    The nuts and bolts/ how's and why's of the "actual science" of inter-dimensional travel is left to the void engineer scientists.

    Now say the guy has a few dots of Hypercram he might know just enough to get by.

      The fact about the story is that it wasn’t one of the technocratic assignments , the entity that sent the locations coordinates deceived her by making her think it was a test/secret mission thing. The letter didn’t have any out right written false statements because that’s against the rules of the entity and Horizon Realm to outright lie or kidnapped her, they can lie by omissions or imply things that aren’t true

        Then I guess the agent is SOL on that end, knowledge of d-science (spirit sphere) is forbidden unless your a member of the void engineers, that said this agent might have training in handling multi dimension entities (spirits) but at that point its entirely up to you about how much plot armor they have in that regard

          Oh the rules of pocket dimension is that people can’t outright attack and kill each other.

            How would they know this? Does the agent get a pamphlet upon arriving in the realm?

                Sounds pretty ridiculous

                  It’s a school thing where the dean wants to teach students mind control because she’s the god of mind control.

                    I find this idea hilarious, and I'm definitively going to use it in one of my games XD

                      There's a word for doing the impossible in mage. Its called "Vulgar Magic" Now he may not understand why its vulgar that he kills someone but.... He is going to notice the backlash

                        There's impossible as in "can't believe this is possible", and impossible as healing Aggravated damage w/o spending Quintessence, casting two Effects with the same Arete dicepool in one turn ... or using Correspondence spells in the Radiance, or any form of magick in the Null Zone

                        If it's part of the rules of the Realm, it can be far harder to accomplish than just Vulgar.

                        Plenty of examples in Book of Worlds.

                          And there's also impossible as in "it's impossible for humans to fly", because there's this thing called Gravity that's so useful to, well, exist as humans...Which you can circumvent with "ordinary" magick, but requires to know the right kind of magick

                          One of the most interesting aspects of Realms it's that reality doesn't need to work like back at home. Not at all. .

                          If there's a "law of physics" that prevents ppl from dying, it wouldn't be enough to cause them damage, and call it Vulgar. If damage can't kill them, magick damage can't kill them.

                          You will need to understand what kind of power it's keeping the livings within the purview of the Life/Spirit Spheres (so to speak), and then use the *right* kind of magicks to turn that switch off (prob high levels of Entropy, Prime and/or Life - it depends on how this inmunity to death actually works) - *this* it's most likely going to be Vulgar, of course.

                          That's the magick behind "impossibles" like reformatting a sector in the digi-web (understood as impossible in the first book, "merely" a lot of Spheres at 5 in 2.0) - and could be extrapolated to magick in general: Understanding -> Power

                            It’s more of like she made Certain deals with people and breaking the rules would be politically inconvenient.
