  • Killgrave as a Seer of the Throne Mastigos

    Another thread suggested that Iron Fist would be a great Adamantine Arrow Story. I had to say that, watching Jessica Jones, Killgrave struck me as the perfect example of a Mastigos mage who is abusing his Mind power way too much. One can say that he might be a great candidate for the Seers, but he can just as easily be any mage falling to hubris. Any thoughts?

      Which, for clarity, is the upcoming new name for the Mad.

        completely fascinated by what one is seeing or hearing.

        "Andrew looked at her, rapt"
        synonyms: fascinated, enthralled, spellbound, captivated, riveted, gripped, mesmerized, enchanted, entranced, bewitched, moonstruck
        I love it. Could it be any more perfect for them?

            It's formally "Enraptured" - "an Enraptured mage" or "the Rapt"

                All mages have magic addiction. It's like a magic overdose.

                An Enraptured mage has hit Wisdom 0, so is no longer able to control her magic Her Gnosis has ruptured around an Obsession, which she now can't get rid of and subconciously creates magic effects to push herself toward. Anything touched by her nimbus can get these weird environmental effects, and she leaks magic so much her presence is covered by Quiescence - Sleepers forget her when she leaves the scene.

                  Do pentacle mages treat Enraptured mages much the same way that they treated the Mad in 1ed?

                    Pretty much. It really is just a name change - you'll get Rapt mechanics in Nameless and Accursed, and they've got a Fault, a magical savant ability, generate Tulpa, etc. With adjustments for second edition, of course, but 2e Rapt are closer to 1e Mad than many similar transitions.

                      Is there any mention of the Bellerophon Group? It was a small thing, as far as I know, in 1e, an inter-Order group attempting to study and understand (and spread understanding of) the Mad. I used it in our game and was just curious if it was name dropped or expanded on.

                        Is there a real difference between 1E Mad and 2E Enraptured? If no, why the change was done, if Mad was canon term?

                          It's kinda offensive.

                            This, with the added bonus that Enraptured also describes better what's the deal with them

                              Is Nameless and Accursed a Night Horrors book?
