  • I thought it was only unsoakable if you had put yourself in a.... delicate position with them?

    I do mean in a more general sense. Not just HITmarks, but Victors and other 'artificial humans' made by the Union just outright don't count as witnesses. For Technocratic Procedures OR Traditional Magic....

    That's literally the case. Being Soulless is a flaw in the Guide to the Technocracy. Because the Technocracy doesn't always bother to instill souls into their constructs.

    You get pre-cybernetics HITmarks. Intelligent, Sentient, but also very malleable and with little to no sense of 'instinct'.

    Mechanically, you can't awaken. Can't use Magic save by devices/artifacts that have their own Arete Score. Don't count as a sleeper.

  • I'd personally say that you would still use Life. One of the biggest conceptual limitations I often see with people and the Life Sphere is they associate it with typical Biological Life. Life is about Living Dynamic Patterns, whether that pattern is made of pure energy, or mechanical robot parts is irrelevant aside from potentially needing Forces or Matter to assist in the creation or healing of the body.

    Imagine, Combining Prime and Life to create a stable, living form out of Pure Etheric/Quintessential Energy.

  • ... Except it's neither mechanically, nor thematically powerful.

    For example. Suppose you NEEDED to know Thermodynamics to use Forces. You had to get a bunch of successes to craft a fireball because you had to scientifically know how fire works. This would quite rightly be viewed as ridiculous. Or you had to know Psychology to perform Mind Effects, and needed to roll a bunch of successes. Ditto.

    It doesn't change just because the sphere is Matter....

  • I'm gonna humbly suggest you ignore the M20 "You need to know/use this skill to do matter magic" thing. Because it's lore-breaking and kind of stupid.

    If I want to conjure some sort of magical sword out of thin air, I should not need to have to go through the rigamarole of actually crafting a sword. The 'Skill' Way of creating most things is just OoR/Technocracy Ritual that's been made coincidental enough that most people can use it anyway.

  • A Ritual casted version of 'Hands of Death' From the Guide to the Technocracy should get you the 'one punch' effect. But Saitama level stuff is kind of.... Well best to hope one isn't on earth when you break it out. Or else the Paradox would be unfortunate.

  • Err doesn't that kind of conflict with the official mage module that has a specific named pattern spider that's made a deal with the Technocracy to do Technocracy/Weaver Stuff and control the outpouring of wyld energy in San Francisco? (At least I think it was san francisco. Could be elsewhere.)
