    Just looking quickly at Life, if a known attack is imminent, Shapechanging (4) yourself or a minion could provide an edge. And Many Faces (3) could be used to create a lookalike decoy to divert attention briefly.

    Chaos Master (Fate 4) combined with some traps, random dangerous obstacles etc could be useful. Think Home Alone with the traps being powered by Fate magic (Yes of course it makes sense that the falling object landed perfectly on his head and didn't just bounce harmlessly off his shoulder or something).

    I'm at work so my ability to think creatively on this...

    I agree with ArcaneArts the book is more useful for it's lore elements and it's exposition on various types of left-handed mages. Like all 1e legacies, the ones presented there would need some tender conversion to 2e (they have 3 attainments instead of 5).

    Also if you are not familiar with 1e, watch out for terms like covert and vulgar, they have no meaning in 2e. (vulgar spells always risked paradox, covert spells didn't unless they somehow stretched credibility for witness sleepers. The 2e system doesn't have this as an explicit trait of spells and is mainly handled through Reach...

    I personally love it when my players come up with ludicrously overpowered but realistic solutions to problems. But yes, if they have something up their sleeve that will simply bypass the encounter, best to know about it so you can plan around it (or just not plan if you don't need to)....

    Oh I must have forgotten about that part. Or missed it. Been a while since I looked at the Red Word....

    I don't see any advantage in removing it. After all the poisoning of the soul by Hubris is supported well when Wisdom gets low and paradox starts kicking like a mule. I like that it doesn't follow the same markers as Morality does for mortals, or Wisdom/morality in 1e, but I really don't see what's added to the game by removing it. Maybe seeing it in practice would change my mind, but so far nothing said here gives me any reason to try it in my games....

    I'm not clear on why you would want to remove Wisdom, It's a pretty simple system, doesn't bog down game play, and provides a mechanical counter balance to actions of hubris (which often include the easiest and most direct path to power). Anyone care to explain why they are not using it?...

    From my understanding, the fragments are already written down and known to at least one person, so the changes caused by them are already in play. In order for things to get stranger, new fragments would need to be transcribed.

    I'll be paying attention to this thread as I'm intrigued by what's happened so far. I tried running a Boston campaign with the Prince as the antagonist but it died about 5 sessions in, so I'm really interested in seeing how a party handles dealing with such a foe....

    Storm Keepers I found rather interesting. Having your Inferior Arcanum become a Ruling is pretty powerful.

    I also enjoy the Uncrowned Kings, the mentality of them I find rather interesting.

    I agree that overall Legacies seem very rigid, which reduces the target audience for them (in the world itself and among players).

    One thing to remind people of though, Legacies add Oblations that allow for harvesting Mana without a Hallow. That alone is pretty powerful and would draw mages to their ranks. Especially mages who are having mana shortages.

  • Personally I see it as a merit that is more likely to be awarded as a quest reward or some such rather than be purchased by a player for the reasons you mentioned. For spending xp on it (especially since you can take Prime 1 and create your own), it's very weak, but Grimoires are still pretty nice to have....
