    Lichdom through the Arcana

    Magical immortality: One of the myriad forbidden fruits of Awakened society, pursued by probably far more than who'd ever admit to it. Prolonging one's lifespan is simple enough with the proper spells (and usually doesn't even require Mastery to get decent mileage out of it), but willworkers are nothing if not also innovators, and the twin daggers of obsession and paranoia create fertile ground for increasingly esoteric variations on a same, grim theme.

    I wanted to create a thread to brainstorm ways outside the obvious that a mage might attain Lichdom, examining methods through the...

  • I wonder if it's possible to cast Platonic Form on a target, weaving a Mana-bullet or poison or such directly into their body. It would probably be Withstood by Stamina.

  • Can Nasnasi become Rapt? Or are Qliphoth meant to replace that?

  • Are the bookmarks in anyone else's e-copy a little odd? I just opened up mine, and there were a bunch of tags labeled "_GOBACK". It was actually a little creepy, for a second. There's also one called "I_swear_its_not_J_Petersen_" which links to Pangloss. Anyway, I was wondering if this should be reported to errata, or if it's an issue on my end.

    replied to Homebrew 2e Entitlements
    I have a draft of an update of the Duchy of the Icebound Heart that I've been working on. It's far from presentable, as I'm still feeling out what makes for a good blessing (many of the examples seem to suggest a combination of obligation + boon). In the meantime, a thought has glimmered in my head that I'm not quite sure what to do with yet, about potential connections between Entitlement, Inheritance, and Ascension.

  • On a similar note, I'm curious as to how Founder's Mark and Court Avatar are meant to interact with Hedge Denizen and Goblin Queen. I guess it's trading one set of problems for another, eh?...

  • Baubles are interesting; they're very different from their First Edition incarnation. Looking back over the list of Subtle Shift options, I get the feeling that inflicting Personal Tilts is probably one of the more popular uses. Their systems really encourage changelings leaning into actions at which they're already skilled; the Wyrd seems to want you to become a parody of yourself.

    It appears that the Empty reinforce Second Edition's notion of the physicality of Glamour, or maybe that changelings are the interstice between metaphor and reality.

  • Not out the gate, no. I think it could easily tie into the Lower Depths, however. In its basest form, the spell is meant to be a philosophical quandary for the Awakened: magic that creates nothing that is something (or vice versa)....

  • I see your point. I guess metamagic-type effects should probably always require Mana, eh?

    Another spell I've been pondering. So, I really like the potential for deep esotericism in Mage. Not just weird stuff, but the sorts of things that on their face make no sense or have no value, but which carry potentially frightening implications. Signs of Sorcery has a little of this, with certain spells and techniques that most Awakened wouldn't probably consider unless they were already starting to keel off the deep end, but there's always room for more. So:
