    replied to Seal of Eight Divinities
    Dreams of the First Age says that using a Protoshinmaic Vortex and a Hand of the Great Maker the Solars were supposedly able to open 7/8 seals but could not open the eighth before the remaining seven snapped shut again. The text does not make it a hard fact. The Hand allows Wyld Shaping in Creation although also the possibility of creating a big wyld pocket.

    MoEP: Alchemicals says a metaphysical barrier it is impossible to open from the outside but relatively easy to open from the inside with an E8 Municipal charm. It also states that it is supported by the power of the divine ministers....

  • Necromantically inspired thread necromancy:

    Sun-Warding Lacquer
    The emergence of the Liminals and exploration of the Lunars soon uncovered many facts about the Underworld. Among the most interesting was the emergence of grave goods, spectral copies of those treasures buried with the dead. Yet specially prepared sacrifices would manifest not as ritual tokens but riches and servants normally requiring great magic to produce. Once this became common knowledge it became standard practices in places near shadowlands to bury their dead in vast warehouse-tombs filled with joss paper...

  • Are you familiar with the provenance of the term "bulletproof"? Makers of plate armor would literally shoot it and show off the dent to prove that the armor was proof against bullets.

    There are also accounts from as late as the 1800s about bullets failing to penetrate articles of silk. Like handkerchiefs. Now that could still kill you, but a silk handkerchief is not armor....

    replied to [2E] Gaia or Autochthon Charms?
    We do know that the reason Alchemicals don't get Sorcery is that Autochthon's sorcerous initiation, and likely many other charms, have a void taint to them that he didn't want to spread. So his charmset probably has a bunch of charms with a "Void" or "Gremlin" keyword that does bad things to you if you don't work to stave it off.
    His sickness wasn't a big deal when he was awake and had access to the Wyld, and in Shards the Solars got it under control by venting a bunch of cancer smoke into Elsewhere. These might hint at ways to mitigate it. In the interest of playability...

  • If you do avoid steam engines, there are always waterwheels. There is at least one example of a Roman construction where multiple mills were built up on either side of a steep hill with a river flowing down it and waterwheels used to turn the millstones.
