    Second Sight Third Eye

    Is it a thorough update and is it worth buying?

    It took several iterations and lots of help from others for me to write up a simple one angel/one demon combat sequence. I'd love to see examples of other systems carefully explained.
    This would be great!

    Honestly, I'm no good at making one of those believable, myself. It's something I'll ponder for the future.

    In the meantime, I did the update, which has an example Cult of a Thing That Should Not Be, a new merit (Sapiokinesis), some additional advice and sidebar options, and a nice editing pass of sorts to tighten and fix some of it. Can find it here, if you don't already have it!

    Or in the Mortal Magic bundle (which is all the Vault supplements I've done that provide options for mortals):

    Is there anything not too huge people would wanna see added? Better description for something, or an example of whatever?

    I was considering updating Third Eye to a fuller extent than the typo corrections I've done thus far, a 2.0 version so to speak. I know I've wanted to include some sample cults for the example Things That Should Not Be, and there's a few other minor things I wanna add some detail for.

    I did what I could! And for what it's worth, I loved the merits in Hurt Locker, and how unique so many of them were. They really expanded what 'supernatural merit' could mean, and it helped guide me along how I did the Thaum/Psychic split.

    Vault stuff is PDF only, currently, so yeah.

    There's some merits for that, and with their tradition they gain some benefits to make it easier for them too. It's not quite an exclusive capability anymore, but definitely something they're well suited to.

    Ah, true that. But yeah, I like this book a lot. The thaumaturge template is much more versatile, powerful and streamlined than before and the ability to ritualize Instant powers is great. Running a game focused on Second Sight and Reliquary now, and this will be useful. 😁

    Edit: And I will propably use new Activation Option for thaumaturges, Ritual. Meaning Merit that would normally be instant can´t be activated without a ritual that takes less time than normal meditation roll, similar to old Second Sight low magic.
    Glad to hear it!

    But if you have any questions about it, feel free to ask.



    The idea was that I didn't want to replicate things too much. Internal Alchemy is partially covered by Biokinesis at the low level, and then the higher level I made its own merit , Ephemeral Transmutation (more expensive since it's no longer template-exclusive, admittedly). Admittedly it'd likely be good to have a mental equivalent of Biokinesis to round that out. Something to add to my list for if I do a major update of the book down the line.

    Similarly, Enchantment is covered by Psychic Empathy (which I even mentioned is sometimes called "Enchantment&quot which a THaumaturge can then use their merit to ritualize.
