    I think this is the part where I get a little confused and my experience playing a Free Council Mage got a little fuzzy (I had the Techne merit and literally never used it once), because the overlap between the existing Order Tool and what is covered by Techne can seem rather large if you're talking about anything technology related.

    If we're talking Techne in terms of a belief structure (Techne: Wicca or Techne: Shinto) or Sleeper culture (Techne: The Force or Techne: Stage Magic), then I can wrap my head around it. It makes sense, and there's a lot of interesting stuff to do that...

    I'm having a little trouble wrapping my head around 2nd Edition Techne. I grok what it is in theory -- encoding Sleeper beliefs into your magic style in a way that both acts as a Yantra and draws power from people who also share that belief -- but when I tried to play it in-game, I struggled to make it work.

    I know I'm the kind of person who often learns best through examples, so can you share ways Techne was used in your games? Mages who used Techne, inventive player uses of Techne, etc.

    Thanks in advance!...
