    replied to Training rotes?
    It'll be a good way to bring in balance.

    Anyway, I found a syndicate rote. Life 3. But it's... Not very good. Taking 4 weeks and appears to be far more limited.

    I'm thinking of a training program, ranging from encouraging pep talks, perfectly modelled and calculated muscle exercises, to health and diet regimes to make someone bulk up and strengthen at speeds far beyond normal.

    Same as teaching. Maybe it's mental exercises taught by a member of the syndicate. Maybe its using drugs to expand neuroplasticity. Maybe the NWO now has a use for all those old room...

    Training rotes?

    You know, I've always liked Exalted's Tiger Warrior training technique.

    And, wel, this is the thing of NWO, Iterator, or frankly speaking, the Technocracy. No way in hell have they not gotten rotes that let them quickly educate and train up personnel. Thing is, I'm not that familiar with Mage the Ascension. So here's the thing:

    1. I see prime for enchantment. In other words, granting magical effects. Do I need it for a training rote?
    2. Life and Mind is obvious for both physical conditioning and education. But when affecting others, on what level?
    3. If...

    So not 'in terms of spheres', but instead in terms of 'Yeah, we learned advanced forensics in the NWO and Iteration X'?

    Ok then. How do you show this? If I show this guy casing a scene, and then finding clues and putting together pieces the normal investigators have missed, do I do it like this?

    Normal people, yoga instructors, and kookies all talk about mental stuff. 'Open your mind' they say. 'Let the energy of the universe uplift your mind'. Yeah, right. Here in the New World Order, we do things better. Mind Palaces and breathing exercises are things we've dispersed...

  • Well, its basically an MIB setting. More grimdark.

    Let's say that our dear protagonist is surrounded. He's holding off an army of cultists, demons, ghosts, and worse to let his friends evacuate. The children they are sent to rescue are long dead. He's injured. His gun has 1 bullet left. And he stands his ground. And then, Exaltation.

    What should the first few seconds be like? And then, the next few hours?...

  • Awesome stunts/ fight scenes/ scenes for Solar power/ Excellence?

    I'm writing a crossover fanfic with the Laundry Files (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Laundry_Files) And what I'm wondering is how I'm going to showcase Solar excellence. To the Laundry, and to the modern world. Any suggestions?

    A/N: Only one solar is present....

    Autochthon was Superintelligent, and could comprehend failure. The Unconquered Sun was perfect at anything he turned his mind to. Lunar could grow multiple brains. The Maidens were in charge of Fate.

    During the beginning of the war, all peered into the future, and all saw the possibilities. Some roads went to victory. Others, to defeat. Thus, in a single council, they set together, and installed 'backup plans' within the Exaltations. Some were relatively simple, such as charm to uplift one of their creations to reach ascension to replace any of their makers would one of the Incarna...

    Because he hates the Solars?

    Because Abyssals and Infernals still have a solar exaltation, only that they're slightly shifted? The Exaltations aren't split or broken. They're re-orientated. Like how you can change the configuration of a program or machine, but you yourself can't damage it. You can use the exaltation as a source of metaphysical and essence power, but you can't change it at its core. That is, Excellence and Perfection conceptualised.

    And you have to ask yourself. The Primordials, at the base, are all-surpassingly, all-consumingly good at anything they...

    On writing mage fiction

    So yes. We as readers, know of consensual reality and mage will working and paradigms.

    But what about in story? If I have a NWO story using his forensics and analytical training to survey a crime scene and analyze a serial killers movements, does he think 'Entropy 1, Correspondence 1, Time 1' or is he simply thinking he's using his training and meditative techniques to make himself momentarily super smart?

    Helping to flesh out a character

    A NWO spook who fucked up one too many times. Impulsive. Sent to rot in a hell hole.
    Detective in a noir film.
    Enhanced aiming and skill in firearms, including gun fu. And deadly martial arts.
    Someone capable of matching Sherlock Holmes and carry out the work of entire teams of analysts (figure out who a serial killer is from the location of his murders). Includes lie detector skills and good luck.

    He's got low level enhancements from a time in Iteration X/ Progenitors when he started to learn Time. Smarter, stronger, faster, with less exhaustion. But what's

    Teremtes, the Flaw That Sees Perfection
    Progeny of the Keeper of the Forge of Night

    Hideous even by the standards of Malfeas, the teremtes are eternally cloaked and cowled lest their hideousness cause the other demons to slay them out of hand. They shuffle carefully through the streets of the Demon City, hawking their exquisitely manufactured wares to any who will take them; weapons & armour, clockwork devices, cunningly fashioned statues and jewellery...

    Ekditaksai, The Infinite Serpents
    Demons of the First Circle, Progeny of The Author In Exile

    For all their varied culture, art and nature, almost all Demons of the First Circle are made first to be useful. Everything beyond that is a secondary concern or trifling afterthought, and this is true of the Ekditaksai as well. Their origins long forgotten, these demons now slither through the warrens of the Demon City, preying on and preyed upon by the ambitious...

    Not sure if I've posted here before...

    There are ways and means to get extra dice and terminus in sorcerous workings. An artifact from a god can give extra bonuses to creating servitors or spirits. A wyld stone shimmering with the alien colours of the wyld will give you extra dice for granting mutations on living creatures.

    Of course, it will take some work, to make sure that this isn't broken. But its worth it, because now you have mechanical backup for having a sorcerer with workshops, strange odd and ends from various parts of Creation, and a wagon full of strange...
