    AAND I already knew that. Anyway, this has been unhelpful. Going to wrangle with Rpg.nets funky search function some more.

      Reviving this thread with my (still incomplete) 2E conversion/house rules for handling the most elusive of relics, seba. This will probably end up reappearing in my own thread for 2E House Rules for Mummy.

      Binding Seba: [Mummies]
      + As written in Book of the Deceived, p. 104.


      Binding Seba: [Non-Mummies]
      + Non-Mummies can bind a number of seba to their souls equal to their Willpower dots.
      + Must be within 10 yards of the manifest relic.
      + Must spend a Willpower point and roll Wits + Occult, at a penalty equal to the seba's dot rating.
      + Must have an Occult Specialty in Iremite Magic, Nomenclature, Astrology, Sekhem, or a similar Storyteller-approved area of expertise. Otherwise, the roll suffers a -3 penalty.
      + On a success, the seba flares brightly and implodes as it binds itself to its new owner.
      + On an exceptional success, the seba's owner regains the lost Willpower point.
      + On a failure, the seba flares up in a burst of light before becoming unbound (for artistic seba) or launching into space (for cosmic seba).
      + On a dramatic failure, the seba is destroyed. Unlike other relics, though, this does not create lesser amkhata. Instead, it explodes in a burst of Sekhem, dealing its dot rating as direct lethal damage within a radius of 10 yards.
      + A seba wielder suffers a penalty to all breaking point rolls equal to the highest dot rating among his bound seba.
      + A seba wielder can regain Willpower via resting up to the difference between his Willpower dots and the number of bound seba he possesses.


      Perceiving Seba:
      + Obrimos Mages can see seba via Active Mage Sight; they can only perceive it through the Prime Arcanum. (Taken from "A Guide to Mortal Sekhem Sorcerers)
      + Other Mages must make a successful scrutiny roll (Intelligence + Occult; target number equal to the seba's dot rating) using Prime in order to perceive the seba for a scene.

          You're welcome.


          I liked how the seba were presented - fluff-wise and mechanics-wise. But I felt that it might have been a bit (unsurprisingly) too harsh, especially in terms of drawbacks and the fact that a very specific criteria was required to perceive seba. Definitely looking forward to expanding this in a separate thread.

          On a related note, the adjustments I had for non-mummies binding seba was to present possible story hooks. For example. Imagine what would happen if a mortal sorcerer (or something worse) got his hands on the Eye of Re.

            Good work, an official 2e translation guide would be great, but you've done good work.
