  • Would anyone be open to the Traditions being reworked? That is, change up exactly what groups comprise the Traditions.

  • If I recall correctly, the Fishers were still active in Stygia during the period covered by the Dark Ages.

    As well, Dark Ages predates the Second Great Maelstrom (which coincides with the Black Death a few centuries later). Think of what that means: the phenomenon of the Great Maelstrom has only happened once; and as devastating as that was, nobody has any reason to think it might happen again — let alone five more times.

  • Ok. Now, does it ever go backward? That is, does a changeling ever escape to a time before she was taken? I can see why a Storyteller might want to avoid the headaches of a time loop; so I'm guessing that if it happens it's rare. But what about, say, a historian who is deeply familiar with a particular past era, gets abducted from modern-day New York, and escapes to the world of Lilly, Saber, and Thorn?

  • Is Temporal Dislocation still a thing?

    One element of 1e's Durances that I found fascinating was that the time spent by the changeling in Faerie didn't necessarily match up with the time that passed on Earth: a changeling could spend months, years, or even decades trapped in Faerie only to escape and find that only a single night passed back home; or a changeling might be trapped in Faerie for mere days only to find that months, years, or even decades have passed since they disappeared. Taken to extremes, this can lead to a fairly unique kind of alienation — in particular, a short Durance disjointed from a long absence on Earth can...

    Wild tangent: had anyone else noticed that RWBY matches one-to-one to the four alchemical operations (Reddening, Whitening, Blackening, Yellowing)?

  • Tradition Special Abilities

    Akashic Ability: Do
    Do is a martial art, and a form of universal mind-body training that breaks through conditioned human limitations. Do allows feats that balance on the edge between magic and extraordinary mundane abilities. To learn Do, an Awakening character must learn the Akashic paradigm and study the new Physical Skill: Do. Add it to the Akashic Brother’s character sheet.

    The first dot of Do gives the mage the Law of Embodiment Merit (see Tome of the Mysteries, p. 77) and one free dot in any Brawl or Weaponry-based Fighting...

  • Technocratic Actualizations and Utopias

    Technocrats don’t undergo “vision quests” or “mystery plays”— or at least say they don’t. At the cusp of comprehending Enlightened Science, these prodigies undergo a moment of Actualization, where they harness their knowledge to fulfil a moral imperative. They imagine a glorious end of history their methods will bring about: a Utopia.

    In a game where Technocrats Awaken to the Watchtowers, their Paths and Realms might look
    something like this:

    The Garden, Utopia of Engineered Life (The Primal Wild)
    The prodigy...

  • Mage Translation Guide: the Lost Outtakes

    I remember that shortly after Mage Translation Guide was published, Malcolm and Dave Brookshaw posted a couple of outtakes: the Technocratic Utopias, and the special abilities for each of the Traditions. Unfortunately, the forums that these were posted on have since disappeared. Does anyone have copies of these lost outtakes?

    IIRC, the Mage Translation Guide summarized all nine. Let me dig up my copy…
