  • Legacy Optional Attainment Question

    For optional Attainments in a Legacy, if it's not something that replicates an effect from your Ruling Arcanum, do you need to spend a point of Mana to get it to go? I'm just curious on how to implement the ins and outs of Legacies before I ask my ST to join one.

    Optional Attainments typically do not require a mana to activate.

      If you read the attainment section closely, you'll see that an attainment from a legacy is an internalized Praxis. You can have a Praxis from a non-Ruling arcana, and you don't need mana to cast it, unless the spell has an inherent mana cost such as Incognito. So you take that bit about the Praxis, and apply it to the attainment, if you have Mind as a non-ruling arcana then you do not need to pay mana to activate a Mind attainment unless it has a built in mana cost like Incognito, and the reason for that is because an attainment works like a Praxis with a more rigid, pre-defined effect.

        Why does Incognito require Mana btw?

          I guess it has to do with the effect stretching beyond the subject to everyone who'd perceive the subject. It's not just the subject becoming invisible. It's everyone else who ignores the presence of the subject.

            It's because it auto-succeeds at stealth against people.
