This topic is about how, basically, in Awakened society nothing can be forgotten just by existence of Space and Time magic. Example comes from Tokyo Mystery of who was Nakatomi Hierarch from 2E corebook - but it's only illustration of 'problem' with rules-to-setting translation. In Fallen Blossoms Dark Era - 'shogunate historical setting in Tokyo' - there is answer to the question of Nakatomi identity. I will not spoil it here, but from analyzing Arcana possibilities I just cannot see how modern, XXI century mages would not know how was their famous local leader 500 years earlier. Or rather still being unsolved Mystery. Need to see Nakatomi? Just find item from Edo period - like real katana or samurai armor and item from modern Tokyo - and take one Space and one Time mage. Space one cast Scrying Window on Old Tokyo town area, for example Emperor court. Time mage use ancient item to have Sympathy with Edo period. Voila, we can all the time see how Edo was rising from fishing town. And Nakatomi was somewhere there. Take few days of this research, and Mystery will be nonMystery. So it should not be Mystery in the first place.
No announcement yet.
