    replied to Technocracy Archmasters
    Not a complete list, but I have this partial one that I found online some years back:
    This is a list taken from a user named 'Thebian' who was amazing enough to put this together. The archmasters are the ones with high arete/enlightenment and they even have pages that they are listed upon.

  • Well said, I always confuse the difference between understanding something and believing in something. Power comes from belief, not an understanding of science....

  • I mean, from a mechanics standpoint it only makes sense that they can preform the effects of they have set it up ahead of time. I always found that aspect of mage confusing because the syndicate mindset is so different. There isn’t a clearly drawn line of what exactly they do and what technocrats actually do with enlightened science. Having pre created infrastructure makes sense but makes them super limited when creating certain effects compared to other paridigms. Technocrats aren’t really allowed to do spontaneous effects if they are syndicate are they?...

  • So in the case of the syndicate, i shouldn’t look at it so much as enlightened science but as a mindset. The metal door doesn’t need to be built for a syndicate mage because his mastery of the economy and infrastructure they can create these effects? If a syndicate mage does this in a random building then that’s a case of vulgar magic? Or would it be impossible in the first place?...

  • Honestly, I would love to have technocrats that are more like keepers of secret knowledge after arete 5. After that point you have become a conduit for your own science, and because they can never drop their tools I figured they would just be covered in even more scientific gear and more heavily augmented. I guess that is why I can never see progenitors as anything but scientists, otherwise they start looking like verbena....

  • You mention that they use infrastructure to solve problems, and that is what I have a lot of trouble with. I have read a lot of other threads recently and people talk about how syndicate magic is kinda bullshit because most of their effects are less "enlightened science" and more convenient industry. A syndicate activating a hidden feature like using (Matter 3) to make a steel security door slam behind him isn't doing "enlightened science", he just presses a hidden button to activate a certain feature. I feel like the syndicate paradigm is lacking in justification for how such...

  • Rise Necro Thread..........



    I figured it was just some fancy art that they did to show dark ages mages, or that it was just art they enjoyed personally. I don't think most progenitors dress in robes with swords and stuff. On the other hand, what makes the technocracy so fun is when individuals break the mold of "lab-coat scientist" and "black suit secret agent". You think they dress up like that in modern times?...

  • That makes sense, but how do they view the magic that other the tradition mages preform? do they justify it within their paradigm or claim its actual magic?...

  • Convention Paradigms to explain enlightened will

    While I was re reading the void engineer revised book I came to a section in chapter 3 titled: enlightened cosmology that basically explains the overarching view of the void engineers and explains what enlightened science is and the reasoning behind their ability to effect reality through their enlightened will.

    "Founded in Platonism
    Tychoides’s ideas were refined by cross-research with Iteration X and before their defection, the Electrodyne Engineers. Modern Tychoidian cosmology treats the cosmos as a “hypercomputer:” a phenomenon able to exceed the limits of Turing...
