    replied to Proximi book
    When you say Sleepwalker/Proximi book, what sort of things would you hope to include? Would it be more of a setting exploration book? A guide to make playing the unAwakened in Mage more interesting? Something to make having unAwakened allies more interesting to Mage players?

    None of this is mutually exclusive, but I'm curious what interests you the most....

  • There's not really any plans to directly update anything from first edition outside the core, no. There's still a lot of unexplored territory in Mage and most of the fluff from 1e is still fine, so, given the limited number of people, time, and money, the investment's going into new stuff.

    As far as updating goes, try it out for yourself and see.

    Ascension does also not require you to be an Archmaster. Regular Mages Ascend far more often than Archmasters do (if only by dint of there being far, far more regular Mages than there are Archmasters; it is still a vanishingly rare thing).

  • The question that needs answering first is just what the minions wielding these magical devices are meant to be doing with them. If they're meant to be his servants out in the world, they don't actually need to be able to do that much to provide an overwhelming advantage.

    A spirit tied to the concepts of gambling and luck, for example, would be a tremendous advantage. Someone's famous "lucky rabbit's foot" turning out to actually be lucky would be quite a thing. Using its Influence (Luck) ability to strengthen their own luck at the gambling table alone would be sufficient...

  • No Better Servant, No Worse Master - The Matagot
    Familiar ●●

    Familiars come in many shapes and forms, in myth and reality, most taking the shape of a suitable animal; rats, bats, birds, snakes, frogs, fish, dogs, and all manner of creature may secretly hide a spirit working for a sorcerer. However, despite there being no apparent need for it to be the case, there is an enduring legacy which seems to persistently tie practitioners of the occult with those most perfidious of creatures: Cats.

    Why? There are, of course, a large number of reasonable-sounding explanations,...

    I'm sure. While the film isn't light on the Lovecraft references either, it's also clearly an homage to King, and you can't really separate the latter from the former. IT, N., etc., are all works by King that draw on the same cosmic horror genre that Lovecraft is so iconic for.

    Again, the film outright has a horror writer as a major character, with the same initials, who is compared to King explicitly at the start of the film. It even sets itself in a small New England town, something else King and Lovecraft share in common....

    Buy Alan Wake on sale on Steam, play that. It's magnificent Abyssal intruder inspiration and the very first words in the game are "Stephen King".

    Beyond that, I wouldn't use anything King did. I don't personally like his stuff so much. King is really good at coming up with ideas that are either unique or uniquely executed, but that doesn't equate to being enjoyable all the time.

    That said, people inspired by King and his works have made amazing things, including the aforementioned Alan Wake, but also the incredible B-movie that is In the Mouth of Madness (which...
