  • Hidden High Speech Qestion

    The new Merit Hidden High Speech from Signs of Sorcery allows the mage to use High Speech as a Yantra in front of Sleepers without making the spell obvious to them. Awesome. Except in order to use it verbally, you need to spend a point of Willpower.

    So I can either spent 1 Willpower to use High Speech as a Yantra (+2 die bonus) or just straight spend 1 Willpower to get a three-die bonus to the roll (and still be able to use a different Yantra if available)? Or can I spend two Willpower on the roll now to get a total bonus of 5 dice to the spell?

    Speaking a mantra is one action, casting the spell is another. Spending WP on both doesn't break the limit of one Willpower point per action.

      Exactly. High Speech always increases the casting time by one turn - it is quite impossible to use the Merit on the same turn that spend Willpower on casting.

        The rule has changed from one per turn to one per action, but since using a Yantra is an action it doesn't matter if it's used on the same turn or not.
