  • ​Back when I was untrained, I too had a passing familiarity with real life occultism. Much of the stuff I've described was completely new to me once I started training, so you not hearing about it doesn't surprise me, I was in the same boat.

    ​Thing is, the truth of the occult has been buried under tons of smearing propaganda, snake oil, wishful thinking, and sometimes even straight up wild guessing. When you have to contend with all that, how can anyone blame you for not knowing? I certainly can't....

    First of all, I didn't mispunctuate you to remove context, but to keep my response relevant to the point I was making. Second, while what you're describing is certainly part of The Fool's meaning, but like I said before, it's more of a specific branch to the card's core meaning. I'd personally find the High Priestess to be a more accurate symbol, as it specifically relates to working in subtle ways and being guided by intuition, and she's a seer, too.

    ​If you're wondering about the Obrimos having the High Priestess, the thing is, she only has religious beliefs, not religious doctrine....

  • ​I apologise, that was not my intent.

    The mole analogy wasn't meant to be diminutive, just noting a particular perspective is all. Not "you're just a lowly mole" but rather "moles can't see stars, that's why it's rational for them to disbelieve that they exist". That's why I included the whole "sorcerers just have different talents, like everyone else".



    ​Okay, now I see why you got offended: I wasn't entirely clear. When I talk about disbelief, I'm not talking about those, like you, who simply don't call what I describe...

  • For starters, neither Star Wars or Spirited Away derive from New Age concepts, and even if they did, that's besides the point. It's a case of art imitating life and also giving people an idea of what I'm talking about (y'know the Force from Star Wars, it's kinda like that, just without the purely fantastical elements like force gripping or lightning from fingers).

    ​I suggest reading up on New Age material, you'll find that what I'm describing doesn't correlate with it at all, or if it does, it's rare and very minor (a stopped clock is right twice a day, after all).

  • Why M:tAw Resonates with Me (And Probably Several Others)

    Ever since I began reading the 1st edition corebook of Mage: the Awakening back in mid-2014, I was instantly hooked. Since then, I've bought several supplements of it, still looking at getting more, played in several chronicles, and setting a chronicle myself. One thing is certainly clear: I. Love. Mage. When I first read the corebook, I couldn’t put my finger on it, but the game spoke to me on a deep level. Now that I am more learned, I’ve begun to point my finger on all the different aspects that relate to me, as well as quite a few others.

    Alright, I’m just gonna say it and...

    replied to Acanthus and Forces Arcanum
    Personally, I see it as Forces being an Arcanum that needs outright and brutal command to effectively wield, which is why Obrimoi can wield it easily, they needed that kind of might to Awaken. Acanthi, however, tend to work more subtly. They nudge and motivate others to move where they want them to go, but Forces simply can't be nudged along, it'll just spill everywhere otherwise.



    ​This is a minor gripe of mine, so please don't take what I'm gonna say next too awfully seriously, but that is wrong. The common stereotype of the Fool relying on luck and destiny is a merely...

    I'm just gonna say Phoenix eats the energy bar and scours his Pattern for Mana as practice, rather than roleplay it out for the sake of brevity. I'll go for Presence, making it 2 dots. Now, he's done this when training with Boomer, and if I remember correctly that was around 11 AM, so he's gonna regain that dot in 5 hours if that's the case.

    ​Also, I'm assuming that Phoenix

  • I am so, so sorry for this, guys. I'm not gonna lie, I actually forgot about the game. My life's changed pretty damn radically in last few months, so things like this fell to the wayside. I'm gonna do my best to be more active from now on.

    ​I'm ready to move on. I know in my last post Pheonix asked a question, but we can just assume Boomer taught him and leave it at that. By the way, for the sake of pace in Pheonix's individual story arc, my last post would be the end of the Anger stage and on the cusp of the Bargaining stage in his grieving period.

    My eyes widen as far as the dummy shatters. I completely destroyed that thing! I don't even know what to say, I just look at my fist as euphoria rushes over me. I feel like I can break anything, anyone. Nothing can stop me.
