    replied to Any more books on the Horizon?
    Along the same line, I could really do with a Paradigma style book which went full scale into Magical Pseudo-Sciences. There would be your standard Jules Verne era Sci-fi Steam Punk, but it would also look at the scientific theory of other practices such as Homeopathy, Astrology, Psychic powers, Alchemy, Sooth saying, Spiritual contact, Chi energy, and the scientific argument for the Soul.

    It could be a mixture of articles and letters along with seminar notes and methods, all with a number of Editors notes trying to pull together all these divergent and often clashing theories into...

    Point 1: Don't put too much stock in what HDYDT says. It's filled with inconsistencies and rules that make no god damn sense at all, such as Chi Healing (oh god... Chi Healing!). There is no reason this effect should be limited to Martial Arts characters.

    Point 2: Vulgar effects like that are never intrinsic. You have to cast the effect and put some duration into it if you want it to hang about.

    Here's how I'd rule it. Let's say you want to to toughen up your skin so it can soak lethal. That's a Life 3 effect with successes split into Lethal Soak Dice and Duration. An...

    The first time I read mage, I misread Arete and Arrogance. My ST at the time said I wasn't all that far off.

  • There may also be a prevailing belief amongst spirits that the penumbra is already a lost cause. Saving parts of it expends energy, energy which could be better used for other things, so why bother unless they can get something else out of the deal?

    It could also be that the spirits nearby who could clean things up are the very spirits that were weakened by the spill in the first place, making them already pretty busy trying to contain the oil, especially if the oil have their own spirits within them that require containing.

    Life 1 "life vision". It's the poorman's heat vision. Depending on your paradigm, you'll either "feel" the vibrations of nature, or literally see all life patterns immediately in front of you. If you're in a dark forest, you'll be able to see or sense your way around the trees and any wildelife that wonders by.

    Life 1 "How hurt is it?" This allows you to know exactly how many Health Levels something has and is at. Mix with Entropy 1 to see how close to death they are, adding Time 1 to sense an accurate "death clock".

    Life 3 "Modesty...

  • Session 24

    Since people's schedules and locations have changed somewhat, I have not been able to do catch up sessions or alternative sessions like I had done previously. I'm not sure what impact this will have on the game or its story.

    Sean “Sam” Heath: Templar Knight
    Helen Walter: Hermetic Spy
    Joe Hanson: Noir Detective
    Aaron Gibson: Punk Hacker

    Vivian: High Priestess

    Edwin: Our Marauder

    replied to Son of Ether character.
    All kinds of things.

    One Etherite's avatar might throw them into elaborate thought experiments, such as a train travelling at the speed of light, where they must act in order to avoid a collision.
    Another's avatar may instead be grounded in reality, requiring that they build their way out of a prison cell, or an abandoned mine.
    Other's still may immerse them in the fantastic, having them stand on a dirigible, in which case they may be acting at pilot, navigator, or even look out to help get from a to b, or simply keep the ship in the air.

    A lot of this will...

    I prefer to always roll, keep it unpredictable and make my mages consider vulgar magic carefully.

    replied to Staving off Paradox
    The problem with this is that it can be abused.

    "Oh no, I have 5 points of paradox. I want to get rid of this so it doesn't add up. I know! I'll do a random vulgar effect, suppress the paradox, and get rid of 6 points for a nice small backlash in the privacy of my own home. Paradox managed."...

    replied to Verbena ritual
    First of all, what kind of backstory does this Verbena have that means they have a vampire who would be ok with this? Most vampire's I'm aware of would probably have something to say about being reduced to some dirt mage's personal periapt.

    Now, spheres, you'll definitely need Prime 2 at least to absorb quintessence from the Tass which is the vampire's blood. Prime 3 would probably be better if the blood is inside the vampire and the vampire is willing, and Prime 4 if the vampire is not willing.

    You may need a combination of Life and Matter spheres in order to target...

  • If you want your sorcerers to be significantly weaker than awakened mages without having to consult the Revised book on them. A quick way is to make all their magic require expenditure of Will Power.
