  • Yeah, that should just be an explanation for how their paradigm presents using Life to heal. I can see an argument being made for Akashics (and maybe Celestial Choristers) being able to alternately use Prime for healing by reversing the process of the Heart's Blood rote and converting quintessence into health levels, but that's an additional option, not a necessary requirement for the standard method....

  • I think Entropy 4 would be the best basis for laying an independent curse by manipulating a target's fate, though of course there are all sorts of long-term effects in the other Spheres that could be made to act in the manner of a curse.

  • I remember something from Vampire 2nd Edition concerning House Tremere's magic beginning to falter: it was attributed dually to the forces of dominion and reason. The latter can be seen in the Order of Reason's efforts to replace superstition with science and rationality.

    As for the former, in the centuries following Rome's fall Christianity became the dominant religion across Europe at the same time that Islam spread over the Middle East and North Africa. Unlike the pagan religions before them, these two postulated monotheism and were very hostile to witchcraft. The old gods, spirits,...
