  • Honestly, the 2e core was good enough to keep me playing forever. I don't need new material to keep me interested in Mage. I'd love to see new material and it will keep me coming back for more, but at this point they could stop and I'd still be very happy. I know that's just my opinion, but really, isn't anything else just a bonus?

  • Yeah, that's how I'd interpret it.

  • They would all have one damage. Shared Fate is for those instances where a source of damage happens to one subject, but not the other, but the other also gets the damage because the spell forces them to share it.

  • More books faster is always nice, but complaining that they aren't out yet isn't speeding the process up any.

  • To create it would be no easy task, yeah, but once it's been created anyone could learn it for 1 XP if they have the minimum arcana requirements for casting it. Praxis also don't need the mastery requirement so it wouldn't be surprising if someone went out of their way to develop a Combined Praxis.

    Not to mention ghosts are twisted versions of the people they once were, Virtue/Vice flip and all that.

    Shifting the Odds straight up gives you Resources so that would be a fairly easy way to hit Resources 5 whenever you want. Sure it only lasts as long as the spell, but you can just do it over and over again.

  • You could use just Forces to cover yourself in fire that isn't burning you, but to actually transmute yourself into flame would be Life 4 +Forces 4. You don't need Life to cast a spell on another person that you can already cast on yourself. Those same rules also apply to your Colossus spell....

  • Prime was the arcana of illusion, so it could have pretty easily mimicked information stored in various media. Soul stones are not some strange rock that a Mage pulls out of himself, but an object imbued with a piece of a Mage's potential Gnosis, so obviously it means an information device (Like a computer) that's been imprinted in such a way. It did basically function as a soul jar though, presumably it falls under Prime because Prime's purview is magic and soul stones are one of the more inherently magical parts of a Mage. Ley lines fall under Prime, so that's how they got that, there were...

  • To clarify on the Death thing, I did mean that you'd be able to tell that something that's supposed to be there is missing. I was specifically thinking of a machine with a missing gear which kept it from running, and Death wouldn't tell you that it's missing a gear, but could notice the gap where the gear was and let you know something was supposed to be in that gap.

  • They use other people to do their thinking for them to start out and then they start yanking souls and plugging them into ley lines to boost their mental powers....

    A Spirit Mage can cause a Resonant area to be Open at two dots, so it would still have to be a place that's Resonance matched with the greed familiar. At three dots of Spirit a Mage can essentially create a Gateway themselves.

    By the way, the Essence cost for Gateway is pretty steep, it would be perfectly in character for a greed spirit to be unwilling to spend it because after all, its greedy.

    Also, the Gateway condition remains for an entire scene and anyone or anything can go wandering through that thing which should provide ample opportunity for complications.

    Gateway is a Manifestation Condition, not a Numena, as such the only areas the Familiar can open a Gateway in are areas that are Resonant and Open for a greed spirit. So it's pretty likely their will be dangerous greedy entities on -either- side of the gate. From low level drug dealers looking for a big score to a dragon nesting on its hoard.

  • So, with Fate also having "intentions" under its purview would it be appropriate to have it read immediate intentions and Aspirations/Obsessions?

    With Death having "absence" under its purview could you cast a spell to figure out what's missing? Or Veil the absence of something from others?

    I would assume you use the Reach for Advanced Duration on the soul jar effect, and the Mind part of the attainment lets you borrow its "foreign perspective" without attaching the foreign soul to yourself. Nagaraja would then keep collections.

  • I recognize that they're two different rotes, but it seems ridiculous to me to say that the upgraded version of the spell is only good for healing other people. Easily solved though, "find" a rote that lets you cast healing effects on yourself or others at your leisure, still just Life 3."

    Plus, there's only a limited number of things that can be a Yantra anyway, and most of them aren't unusual.

  • You can always target yourself with your spells.

    If I recall correctly Healing Heart is a dot higher than Self-Healing because in 1e viable spell targets worked by dot level, at the most basic you could cast it on yourself, then a dot more you could cast it on another, then a dot after that you could cast it at sensory range. Being a higher level dot means the spells is exactly the same, it's just expanded the parameters for what counts as a viable target.
