    replied to Mythos Based Faction?
    Another aspect of the Mythos that could be visible in a Mage's Foci is faith and religion. The K'llashaa are noted as not following the standard hierarchy/titles of the Nephandi (Shaytan, Prelati...), but instead forming their own hierarchies with the leader being a priest. The K'llashaa are noted as using minimal(istic) foci, so I could see their True Magick being somehow similar to that of Choristers perhaps....

  • 270) Rivers of Tears [Paradox Flaw] The Mage is prone to sudden outbursts of sad, tearful crying. The triggers for such outbursts are many and whimsical - an NWO member might cry every time he buys cigarettes, while a Verbena will have streams running out of her eyes at every sight of her cauldron. An Ecstatic might have to sit down and cry it out every time someone speaks badly about a movie classic, or when he hears a new joke.

  • When I read "their own Traditions", I imagined something new like eight (or nine if you include an Entropy-wielding group) Arabic and Batini themed Crafts mirroring the Council of Nine Mystic Traditions; it would be a sixth major group of Mages....

    While some sources make it sound like it's the case for all Nephandi, others - like 2nd the Book of Madness say it's the K'llashaa who do so.

    You can use the K'llashaa. But I'd say any Mage could very well use the practices and Foci that you mentioned - without necessarily being part of the Nephandi....

    28) The Glass Walkers call in a hefty debt the local Technocrats owe them and demand that one of their younger Kinfolk be Awakened by their expertise and effort. This wouldn't make the Technocrats involved that nervous except for one caveat - the tutelage given by the Technocrats to the Kinfolk must be of a mystical bent; so that the Kinfolk, as the Glass Walkers put it "Can help us deal better with the spirits of the city, among other things.".

    24) An Ecstatic finds one of the Syndicate's MIDAS Cards. She uses it to live an unabashed lifestyle of weed smoking, binge drinking and constant trips to foodie places - and she rapidly rises to a very high Enlightenment. The truce with the Technocracy is put under a question mark - but surely the Ecstatic can negotiate; perhaps even without returning the Card?

    22) A young member of House Bonisagus has been accused of Soul Commerce by higher-ups in the Order of Hermes. The claim is that the Correspondence/Mind Rote that enables him to look up and memorize the city's bus schedule in real-time came not from honest True Magickal effort, but was instead paid for by half of the young Mage's soul!
    This accusation is obviously bogus, but the introverted Bonisagi has made no friends among other Hermetics - beyond the official line, everyone knows that the young, arrogant upstart will have to live with being exiled from the Order of Hermes and the Council...

  • There's a Cthulhu-like being in the Book of Madness 2nd edition (looming over a Labyrinth) and in M20 Core (being summoned).

    Also, check out Robert W. Chamber's The King in Yellow - it's very good and connected to Lovecraft's Mythos.

  • They also have their own True Mage group - the Idran!
    And the three Liches, who are also True Mages....

    I've been thinking recently that they should make a TV-series about a Technocrat, a Glass Walker and a Ventrue working together to cover up secrecy breaches (and solving other mysterious and exciting cases!). It is as if I can almost hear and see the opening montage......

    21) The head of local (or regional) Progenitors seeks to turn himself into a kind of Lich; through the use of large amounts of Kindred Vitae. (How did he gain access to it?) He has offered this Treatment (or a chance for it, anyway) to any Mages who will aid him.

    If you can have Spectral Nukes, then you could have what would in practice be nuclear shelters in the Shadowlands...They could perhaps even be created in a day or a few (or within hours) in an emergency, considering the Tal'Mahe'Ra has the three Liches and the Idran True Mages. The Mages also could have divined the coming strike....

  • In my headcannon any/all Embraced Mages gets abilities appropriate to their Paradigm. This might be easy development of Thaumaturgy or Necromancy, innate and more effective Disciplines knowledge, unique powers (including Disciplines), Merits, and bonuses to Attributes. I also think an Embraced Mage's Avatar survives....

    I've had those thoughts some time ago that all (or some, like the Baali) Kindred Clans and Bloodlines are result of True Mages (or Hedge Magicians) choosing (or being forced on) this path. There is power in blood, after all.......
