    Indeed Arete can be said to directly affect what a Mage can do. However, isn't it the same with Rank in practice? After all, a Fera who has reached Rank 5 or more has earned enough Renown that she or he is effectively an extremely powerful, influential, subtle, skilled etc. person. Reaching a high Rank cements these qualities, and can very much add further ones. Rank is more than Gifts - it means access to Fetishes (not only ease of access - a high Rank Fera can also make new Fetishes, direct others in making new Fetishes, invent new Fetishes) and - through closer link with Totems or Incarnae,...

    I'm inclined to disagree; while powers over five-six are hard to use in games across the whole World of Darkness, they definitely aren't 'plot powers'. Mage: the Ascension has a workable/interesting write-up for Spheres over 5.
    Going back to Fera - I think Rank 7 Fera would be those that could still be interactable and/or playable enough to include in a book about Garou and/or Fera legendary heroes....

    Hm, isn't it noted in regards to the Black Spiral, in at least one book (of the Wyrm), that each circle signifies a rise in rank for the Black Spiral Dancers? With the ninth being different and offering a possibility to ascend to being a Totem, for example.

    Also, don't Kitsune ranks go beyond 6, and they gain an extra tail at each one? I recall that there is one Kitsune who has nine tails....

    Perhaps the Nictuku could be embraced Primal Mages - simple and primal Mages from the times of prehistory or those that came later that had similar Paradigm(s) (or Foundation and Pillars) to them.
    They would gain their set of abilities due to the Embrace and post-Embrace events changing/sublimating them. The change could be an extreme and/or scary one (or not so extreme, but still very scary) due to the Foundation (or center of the Paradigm) of Primal Mages being always something in the vein of Survival.

    Seconded. It could also touch on how the legendary rank 6+s inspire the other Fera. Including Fera from outside their Breed. A part could detail moments/times of great Fera cooperation....

    I thought the central point of the Syndicate was to control the Masses through value and currency; and to make money for the Technocracy.
    The NWO deals with information and manipulation.
    Most of the time both of these focuses are best realized through subtle and Coincidental means; however, this is a secondary focus (and one shared with the Iteration-X and the Progenitors at the very least) compared to the two central aims I outlined above. Technocratic Procedures are noted as prone to failing more so than Adjustments, and attracting Paradox; in (as far as I recall) M20 Core.

    Ah, these simple and barely present foci (is this the right word to use for Sorcerers?) of the Syndicate...By this point, it can be said that anyone could use it, not just Syndicate representatives.....

    Not really that bizarre - the Malfean Nephandi or Wyrmish Sorcerors could put or escort the Fomor through the Umbra....

  • Yeah exactly.
    One thing to note that this allows all the various Nightfolk and each of the faction lots of room for acting while still preserving their secrecy (and that of other Nightfolk). I can easily imagine Technocrats or Kindred facing down a bunch of arrogant non-Imbued hunters who figured out a bit...and laying it out for them that, even if they are left alive, there is no way they will ever be able to inform the public about the supernatural and the Nightfolk in any way....

    Another way of Technocratic Counterspelling and/or Unweaving that just came to my mind: through jokes and talking it out among themselves. An Arete 6+ Syndic or member of the NWO could Unweave whole Rituals with their laughter and knowing smirks.

    Pharmacopoeists might have pills to counter each of the Spheres; while Genegineers and FACADE Engineers modify their bodies in advance.

    Also I don't think it should be called “spouting technobabble” - the way Technocracy are head and shoulders deep in their Paradigm(s), this 'technobabble' might just be right through and through.


    Yes, full-on technological counters are options some of the agents choose or can requisition, I imagine. (or it gets provided by them with a suggestion that they use it for a given situation)

    This is more in the vein of Iteration-X or the Void Engineers I'd say. While the NWO, and of course the Syndicate with their Coincidental charm, would use the ones I mentioned, I imagine. A question is - where the Progenitors would stand?

    And all of this applies to Unweaving as well; including against Sorcerer magic....

    -Setting the situation so that the caster's Paradigm is somehow put into doubt or shown to not be so universal. This can be done with a few well placed words or sentences.
    -Expressing scientific skepticism.
    -Mockery, laughing, being relaxed, showing no fear....
