    Also OPP doesn't care about errata.

  • Both option should be possible with Matter. Depending on your original reading of Shrink and Grow you should be able to Reach for the other option.

  • I think it changes only the size. Leaving you with a very heavy toy car.
    Edit: As to explosions. You could possible grant just properties of an explosive. Make a floor flammable as nitroglycerin but leave all other properties.

  • Price of Hubris (Prime 3 + relevant Arcanum at 1) from 1E Banishers book allows to redirect any direct damage spell back to source. When ported to 2E it should be able to use some Reach to allow any spell to be redirected. I imagine that at 4th dot you should be able to hijack the spell control entirely. I'm still not certain it should have 'relevant Arcana' requirement when cast at 4th dot.
    -----------------
    I'll change the topic a little. What it would take to stop a mage from casting spells?
    2nd dot. We could craft version of Wards and Signs that shields target from Supernal...

  • Hmm. So copying is mostly done at 4th dot. You can shape things that already have some plasticity with Ruling though: sympathy, matter of all kinds, change type of resonance(?). But at that level you need some good canvas.

    Word of Command(1st dot spell) can bypass the key and activate any imbued item or artifact without a single dot of relevant Arcanum. Added other Arcana are needed to activate e.g. a Fetish. Which is weird, imo, that you need 1 dot of Prime in addition to 1 dot of Spirit to do something like that and I don't agree with it. - But that's a different topic. Anyway....

  • Shifting Sands has a Reach option that lets you go one scene back and can be taken multiple times. One scene roughly translates to one hour so you need ~24 Reaches applied. In order to not die or summon some annunaki you need to pump a lot of mana into the spell

  • You can. It's just expensive in mana....

  • Overall you might all be right about 'creating' a spell, but isn't it the same case with Borrow Threads? You create a sympathetic connection with a 2 dot spell.
    Word of Command can already activate spells. Stealing spell control should work like Dispelations I think. At least on 4th dot....

  • He would have to follow guidance from Dispel Magic and Supernal Dispellation so 4th dot for copying with Prime only and lower (2nd or 3rd) for when you have all relevant arcana on 1st or maybe 2nd dot....

  • Sure. We know that besides lowering you can't really change spell factors, right? It means that copying can't really do it either. What it can do is multiply a spell and possibly put it under Prime users spell control. Example:
    Pete the Prime Guy and Frank the Forces Guy are fighting a Monster of the Week. Frank casts some penalty spell on the Monster but soon wishes cast some more spells so he has let go of the penalty spell(he could have just relinquish it but whateva). Here comes Pete with his cloning spell. Now he has an identical spell, targeting same target and will end at the same...

  • I never said that I wanted to copy Imago, which to be honest would require something like second dot. You could then examine it but not cast I think.
    And Prime isn't exactly a pen. It's a comprehension of the fundamental principles of reality and the power of the Supernal, manifest through the Gnosis-modified power of the human soul....

  • You don't need to understand a sentence in a different language to copy it. I'm not saying that you are able to change it in any way, just that you could make a copy like with Borrow Sympathy. No factor changing so you would end with e.g. two same Bans in the same place. It has some utility though.


    'Copy' doesn't mean 'cast without them'. You still need the original to perform....

  • What do you think about copying a spell with Prime? Two dots with knowing all arcana involved and four dots without knowing them. Non Lasting and costs 1 mana. It would be nice to copy imbued items like that.

  • Five Eyes Good idea. I might have overdo my spell just because I wanted same scaling but this seems very elegant.

  • Hmm. Quick question. How would you model a Groundhog Day with this spell? Is it possible to stretch gnosis interval with reach?

    Sorry, I meant 'supernatural effects'. Somehow my mind made a weird distinction between 'source' and 'effect' making first one mundane and the second supernatural.

    Edit: Shielding from death from mundane cause should grant blanket immunity by RAW and CoW for all other supernatural powers.

  • It depends on your PMS interpretation. If it detects magic I'd say no, you can't hide Life Spells with Life Arcanum from PMS. But if it detects effects of magic you can Veil them.
    Mind should be able to Veil anything, though.

    While not exactly coming back to life those are also fun things to do: Shielding to not die when you have all health boxes aggravated by mundane source and get CoW on all effects that would kill you. Weave you and your target in such a way that he dies instead of you.

    replied to Area spells on an item?
    Earth is moving around the Sun with speed of 110.000 km/h(not to mention rotation and movement of the Sun through galaxy). When you cast area spell you choose to anchor the area on the Earth. Otherwise long lasting effect would be impossible to achieve - Deepen Shadows would stay behind our planet in a blink of an eye.
    I get that this might be the base and most intuitive way of anchoring but I see no reason to not change it with some Reach.
    Area coordinates are always relative to something you chose to be a point of reference....
