    Don't need no stinkin' badges- as long as you're in a position of some kind of authority over a sleeper you're talking to, you can pass off nearly anything as a symbol of said authority.

    Don't need no stinkin' matches- you can ignite any small piece of wood by striking it on something like a match.

    Don't need no stinkin' mattress- you can sleep anywhere, in any position and wake up feeling rested. This does not protect you from environmental damage, sleeping on a rock would not cause you to wake up feeling like crap, but sleeping in a fire will still burn you up without...

    I don't think I've read the merit, so some of these may be too much or too little, but...

    Theme music that you can turn on and off.

    Turning pages of a book or opening unlocked doors or packing your suitcase telekinetically. Edit: the intent was choosing one of the three. Sorry for the confusion.

    Turning hair green with a touch.

    Conjuring dog residue.

    Making the sound of an annoying dog barking.

    Regurgitating food into its pre-eaten form (I don't know why you'd ever want to do this, but oh well.)

    Burping...

  • So... the hermetics are just being all metaphorical when they call the spheres sephiroth?...

  • I really never liked the whole "qlippothic stuff is always yucky and evil" angle.
    I mean there's a lot of real life occult groups that do qlippothic stuff, allegedly work with or even worship spirits considered demons, or with Cthulu. It would be cool to be able to draw inspiration from them without feeling like I'm breaking canon by not having every mage with a tysonomicon or a red card be a nephandus or on their way to becoming one, that's all I'm saying.

    Well, if they resisted technological advancement people would still be basically in medieval times. I could see some slow grinding progress happening though.

    I guess the USA would still belong to the native tribes, since that was a rather large change. It also wouldn't be called the USA, so that's a bit inaccurate but I don't know what it would be called.

    Most European nations would probably not be "nations" as we understand the term today, since a lot of Europe was tribal-ish back then.

    A lot probably depends on whether we're talking 1e rules...

  • M20 suggested that a spell that does something that the earthly foundations oppose can be coincidental, but only with great care taken to take them into account while still creating the effect. I think it said a person flying is always vulgar, but airplanes, thanks to the technocratic paradigm, are coincidental. So I imagine a hermetic working through the right steps could make something similar happen in a reality zone that accepts the hermetic paradigm. I'm not really sure what that would look like.
