  • Pardon, to clarify, in some paradigms, a given sphere has a winder domain than it does in other paradigms a la the "VAs think that Correspondence by itself is enough to cut an apple" but I don't think most STs would allow that. BUT! Your ":P" is noted. :3...

  • I don't know to what extent this explains it, but in conversation with a long time WW author, they mentioned that every change they wish to submit goes through five levels of review at WW and that review can be time consuming. Some errors were purposefully left in a recent Mage book because fixing them would have required likely a month to go through a revision cycle for something almost a press.

  • I feel the problem here is conflating our notion of true with a paradigm's notion of true. For instance, to VA, they feel that correspondence should be able to cut an apple in half, but regardless of willpower, they still need matter/life to bisection something. There's also a gap between understanding the model and being able to manipulate it. Seeing the source code and editing it are different and the notion of editability is also a paradigm question. One could "see" the wave function for a phenomenon in physics but changing it directly at the source level rather than interacting...

    Can you link to a rote that does the long-running healing as you mentioned?

    I'd treat any of the always running with a trigger effects (the interrogation) as Time 4 + Mind 2 or 3 or require continual recasting or a supply of quintessence....

  • I do feel the book missed a lot of critical elements answering the questions of "how do I incorporate this respectfully". The author of the Afro-Caribbean section commented that she was worried that people would just use zombies and such as monsters to kill which is a fine concern. The two options are: Don't include them or give the audience hints on how to use these characters well. I feel the book failed in the second regard.

    I also find it fascinating that one of the Pacific Rim god-heads (I don't recall which) is listed as not working with outsiders. I wonder how...

    If demon hunter includes vampires, it's odd to me that one would lack Matter as a vampire hunter or more spirit for demons. But if they're an orphan. Eeeeh?

  • Technocrats are likely to run simulations and models to predict future happenings or to investigate nodal points in an emergent system. Luck manipulation can be viewed as either influencing probability landscapes or waiting for critical junctures and acting. Again, simulations, math, and such as well as quite simply "training". In the same way a hand-to-hand combatant can notice opportunities in a brawl, an entropy effect regarding luck can simply be a Procedure where a Technocrat with appropriate training will notice crowd movements and such.

    Much of Technocratic magic...

  • I'm not shooting to run Skinner so much as emulate the set up. Mage has no SAS modules/supplements so before I use it as a template, I'm looking for commentary on how well it worked as a tool....
