  • An outlier, maybe, but the precedent is there because that rote remains. And until errata officially restructures or removes the rote that set that precedent, I can only assume it was intended. I always interpreted the "soilds" listed under matter's purview just a way of filling out the list. Solids, liquids, gasses, the states of matter, not as a method of saying, "Only this arcana can make things solid."

    On second thought...honestly, I was pretty excited to find Mage. It looked like exactly what I was looking for in a magic system, flexibility, creativity, symbolism,...

  • Except they're in the book—the official rule book that everyone reads to get an idea for the basis of how the system works. Is there some sort of pending retraction or errata not yet in the current copy of the book posted somewhere that supports the fact that they're poor examples? I mean, looking at errata logs I can find, both spells got looked at and the only thing they did was change the spells to Weaving and Patterning respectively. It feels unsatisfying to simply discard any spell and go, "Ignore that, it doesn't fit the view of how I feel the system should work."

  • I have a hopefully simple question regarding Practices. Let's say I wanted to take a clump of dirt and turn it into liquid gold. Obviously this falls under the scope of two separate Practices. Patterning to turn the dirt to gold, Weaving to give it the properties of a liquid.

    My question is if you need two Practices to technically create the desired effect, would selecting the higher Practice of Patterning grant you the effects under Weaving simply by being a higher practice?

    I mean, technically Ruling is used to move something under the Arcanum's purview, yet higher...

  • I'm of the opinion that the solidity/tangibility of something under the purview of an Arcanum is something that any Arcanum should be able to control with the use of Weaving. The wording of weaving is: that the mage "can alter nearly any property of a target" (...I probably should have made this spell weaving with that in mind.) But I believe solidity/tangibility should be one the properties of what you're manipulating. The precedent is already there with Shadow Crafting (Death ••• Weaving spell), and perfectly explains the presence of that oddball spell.

    My biggest...

  • Freedom of Movement (Space •••)
    Practice: Weaving
    Primary Factor: Duration
    Withstand: ???
    Suggested Rote Skills: ???

    A true wielder of space cannot be constrained by simple distance and direction. This spell isolates the space around the subject's feet allowing the subject to freely solidify the space into a platform at will that they can use as a stepping stone to leap or bound in any direction they please. This allows the subject to spend an instant action on their turn to create a single platform they can use to traverse space. Letting them bound across...
