    Exalted 3e (p. 155): "Occult represents an intrinsic facility for dealing with Creation's mystical and otherworldly elements." Intrinsic means inherent, hereditary, genetic, natural, essential, etc., basically a quality that someone is born with rather than a quality that someone can learn. An intrinsic facility is a talent that one is born with, which suggests that Occultism is an Ability that one can only develop if you are born with the innate talent (basically, no mortal character should be able to 'learn' it, just improve it if they already have it).

    Of course,...

    An interesting expansion of mortal thaumaturgy, though I would personally replace Occult with Lore (since Occult is innate in 3e while Lore is learned).

    Exorcism is a form of thaumaturgy, and mortal thaumaturgy is exceedingly rare (Exalted 3e, p. 490). The most common form of mortal thaumaturgy is tea ceremony, which is 1:10,000 in regions that drink tea. Thaumaturgy can hardly be considered common enough to account for all of the mortal magic in Creation, which is why I suggest that mortal sorcerers are more common than mortal thaumaturges.

    That is a good question. I imagine that there would be a number of tests involving games of chance, pattern recognition, strange drugs, etc. The Guardians of Hidden Potential would probably have a hundred different methodologies, though they would probably only bother testing children who were known oddities to their communities.

    As for learning Occult, I think that is impossible in 3e, as it seems to be an innate supernatural sensitivity. You are either born with the potential, have it invested in you through a process like Exaltation or Exigence, or you do without. I agree that...

    Mortal Sorcerers in the Realm

    So, I noticed that one of the rulers of House Nellens, Nellens Sabine, is a mortal sorcerer, and it got me thinking about the role that mortal sorcerers play in the Realm. I think that they could be divided into four primary groups. First, those who are scions of the Dynastic Houses or patrician families, who use their sorcery for the benefit of their Dynastic Houses or patrician families. Second, those who are mortal monks within the Immaculate Order, who use their sorcery to protect the spirit of the Realm. Third, those who are mortal specialists within the Imperial Legions, who use their sorcery...
