    replied to How paranoid are your mages?
    Surprisingly non-paranoid for Gnosis 5 first Degree Masters/third degree Adepts, but we are hubristic as shit and as we spend so much of our time in either alternate dimensions, alternate timelines, or on other planets, we aren't really anywhere long enough to make enemies that actively hunt us. We also always try to honor our cabal's name "Ex Tenebris", i.e. never let anyone notice you are involved to begin with. Still, our carelessness has made us walk into a trap by some Sleeper Hunters once already.

    ... though looking at our active spells right now we have used our new...

  • From my first Draft of making Legacies for all the Immortal Weapons. Haven't touched that document in many months, so might as well post this very unfinished draft of the Immortal Iron Fist Legacy here.
    [In my writeup all immortal weapons have Life as their Primary Arcanum, with slightly different Attainments. The big differences come in their secondary Arcanum.]

    Secondary Arcanum: Prime

  • Rottentomatoes also gives an average Rating of 4.34 out of 10. Which isn't great, but to get a Tomatometer score that low with an average rating that close to 5.00 means most critics rated it only barely in the area that RT counts as negative.
    I.e. critics were uniform in finding it a slightly below average series....

  • Not gonna argue against the appropriation problem and that they should have made Danny Asian, because I agree with you on both, but


    You say that, but who is he the savior of? Except other white people, himself, and he and Colleen saving each other several times.
    He isn't the savior of K'un Lun in the series (and mostly not in the comics, especially compared to the likes of the Thunderer or, more importantly, his daughter), just someone who fought for and got a job that is so shitty that in the comics at least those in the know do their darndest the keep the ones they...

  • To be fair this is about using Veil of Moments as a indefinite Duration Legacy Attainment, so that it cannot be dispelled. In which case you get a maximum of four Reach that you can spend, of which you need to use to make it indefinite Duration. With only two Reach left you are going to have to make some hard decisions about what you value most: Willpower, Mana, or natural healing. And no spending experience no matter what....

  • A four dot spell as a fifth Attainment gives you two reach to spend, which is enough for indefinite duration.

    I'll be honest, I did that for the 40k joke.


    There must be a failure of communication here. In my original post you quoted I explicidly said "non-evil" way, I said nothing about those ways not removing you pretty far from normal human expericen. in fact the rest of my post (which you didn't quote) I directly addressed that as one of the impossible to avoid repercussion of becoming immortal.

    So I stand by my statement that there are...

  • To be clear, I just mean immortality as in 'not aging', not 'can't be killed'. Just take a spell that prolongs your life, and make it an indefinite duration Legacy Attainment.
    Death (or possibly Life) shielding, Veil of Moments, Shapechange, etc.
    As your single example, take Veil of Moments as a fifth attainment with the four available Reach spent on Adanced Duration, Indefinite Duration, Ability to regain Willpower, and ability to regain Mana. Just make sure you have Life at three or more, so you have a way to heal.
    Though personally I think using Veil of Moments is most boring...

  • I like to imagine that Mages that use non-evil means to achieve immortality (like eternal youth Legacy attainments) may not be declared Left Handed, but will still face mounting pressure to give up all influence in Mage politics. For exactly the reasons Dave mentioned, i.e. they are too likely to start treating others as nothing but chess pieces.

    That also makes it kind of a self correcting problem, because a Mage that is no longer part of an Order and Consilium and who had most of her personal friends die of old age doesn't have the necessary protections against all the factions...

  • You are confused about standards of evidence here.
    Dark Archon posited the theory that is't impossible to play a game that features Mages breaking reality without Archmages/Exarchs getting involved.
    To disprove a theory requires no more than a single piece of evidence! Whether Mrmdubois provides a statistically relevant number of examples or just a single one us utterly inconsequential, because one always enough to scrap a theory.

    You can now try to argue whether those groups were only able to do that because they somehow went against established facts of the setting to...
