    But I see the sample immortals have different attributes that its category for the Endless Potency merit, has this been fixed in an errata?

    Thanks,...

  • Thanks for the answer. How would a non-changeling assert power over the Hedge? I could envision a mage (specially someone with Fate and Mind) doing it, but seems hard for other supers, and even more for humans....

  • Greetings,

    Hollow questions:
    1. Assuming that a non-changeling can access the Hedge, can anyone get the Hollow merit? In the mage forum, two different posters agree but I wanted the opinion from the Changeling folks.
    2. Do I understand correctly that the Hollow does not need to reflect the Thorn / Hedge theme? For example I want my Hollow to look like a comfortable mid sized manor on a fortified island in the middle of the sea (Luxury Goods, Size Matters 2, Hidden Entry)
    3. If the answer to the previous question is YES, what stops me from making the Hollow larger and larger by developing

  • The Wyrdbound Oaths spell allows mages to be part of Wyrd-backed oaths.


    Oaths allow a free Mantle dot:



    The following questions arise:
    1. Assuming that a Court accepts the mage. Does this mean that a mage gains a Mantle rating if allowed? Or does it gain the Allies (Court) / Court Goodwill (Court) instead?
    2. Assuming that a Motley accepts the mage. Can they buy Motley merits like Hollow?

    Thanks for the answer. Is there any precedent (on 2ed) for Optional attainments using different Arcana?...

    I agree, but thing is I did not want to waste reach from the Master attainment, for Present as Past, one reach must go to Advanced Duration, but all the other options: Instant Casting, Switch Primary Factor, etc, are underwhelming and not aligned to the individualistic nature of the Legacy powers... Acceleration seemed the best bet given its initiative, extended actions and rote dodge effects (plus stacking Mana expenditures is efficient).


    A couple of unrelated questions:
    1. Since attainments do not cost spell control, could I cast them N number of times, for N number of people?

    It is about improvising yes, but being such a quick and good thinker that people look at you as always in control or absurdly talented.



    Thanks for the ideas, I am more thinking of 1 and 3, with 1 being the most accurate of the listed options....

    I love both Shifting Sands and Present as Past, the only way to have them both as potential attainments is to put Present as Past at Adept level, and either Disciple or Master Shifting Sands... Does it merit put SS at Master Level? Or it it worthwhile at Disciple level (instant cast of course).






    Ha! Exactly what I was going for, a mastermind planner, heavy on the paranoia side (so lots of defensive powers: Mental Shield, Shield of Chronos, Constant Presence) and lots of mental enhancements (One Mind Two Thoughts, Augment Mind)

    I think the reattachment part would fail or require a permanent effect (not a lasting one). On 1e terms, it would be trying to make a spell permanent on a human pattern.

    Also if this worked, then bone, blood, flesh, and organ refinement would also be possible, and this would be a Cultivation novel! (that gives me ideas for a Legacy though).



    On an unrelated matter... Present as Past as a Master level attainment with reach assigned to Advanced Duration certainly, but what is better for the other reach: Instant Casting, Switch Primary factor to duration (so...

    Up to here in total agreement.


    Why? That was my example shown there, will it get automatic jumps as per a spell? That I think is the main question.


    EDIT: I just realized that I was being a moron, the same link explains what happens here. Thanks Cauthon very cool explanation, the website is extremely helpful....

    Great, that explains things for spells for me, thanks!

    But on the attainment side, I think your calculation does not make sense for me yet. Look at the example attainment on the Core book:





    As per this example in the book, it would mean that if I have Arcanum 5, Advanced Duration and Potency primary the calculation is 5 minus maximum possible penalty (-4) in the advanced duration chart, for a Week duration. From where are you getting a Year on the Mental Shield example a while back?...

    Got you, so not sure but quite probably as you describe.






    Here is what confuses me. Can you explain to me step by step this part? Where does it say that the duration chart jumps are automatic either for spells? Also can you help me with the duration chart example in the rule book?

    STANDARD DURATION
    Duration Dice Penalty
    1 turn None (basic successes)

    Cauthon thanks for the answers!

    I got confused with two things:
    1. You have mentioned using Time in a Bottle, but isn't this only for spells not legacy attainments?
    2. If an attainment spell is Duration primary and I add to it Advanced Duration, it means that I get Arcanum dot in duration x scene right?

      Example; I have Mind 5, my Disciple level attainment I pick Mental Shield (Primary Factor Duration), I get two free reach, one for Instant Casting, other for Advanced Duration. The attainment is cast instantly and last 5 x scenes/hours right. What can I do to make it

    Cauthon now, what do you think are the best Time spells for attainments?...

    Great list, thanks.



    Got it.


    Shifting the Odds could find things immediately, so not completely useless:

    "Casting the spell looking for a
    kind of person in a crowd or an item anywhere it could appear
    is usually enough to immediately succeed"


    Understood.


    Let me try to fix this.




    I have an old copy but you are right, it was wrong, I will try to get an errata version of the core book....

    Love your Fixers idea (BTW it should not be Time but Fate the optional arcana), from a mechanical point of view, metagaming a bit, which ones do you think are the best Mind, Fate and Time spells as attainments?

    I was thinking these:



    Geniuses
    Free Council / Acanthus
    Mind / Time

    Initiate (Focused Mind)
    Perfect Recall - Instant Casting
    Momentary Flux - Instant Casting

    Apprentice (Savant Aptitude)
    One Mind, Two Thoughts - Advanced Duration, "Instant Tasks"
    Constant Presence - Advanced Duration...

  • Yes, but it is weird then since I cast to say use Any skill... Before knowing which skill I will use in that future situation. So, that is why I assumed I got to recast the spell.

    What about a complementary question. If I cast Serendipity WITHOUT using the skill usage capabilities, and after, when the situation arises I want to get the effect of skill substitution, does recasting suffices or I have to make do as it is?...

  • Thanks for the answer, but you answer 4 and the Serendipity answer now confuse me on the case of Shifting the Odds.

    So, IF I am getting you right and I cast Shifting the Odds with Instant Casting and finding the person in 1 hour Reach... But the spell expires what happens? I think that you need to keep casting until you find the person.

    Also, If I cast Shifting the Odds with Instant Casting, I want to use the alternative function (merit usage) and the duration expires before using it (but after finding the Merit equivalent), what happens?...

  • Spellcasting questions (with specific examples)

    Greetings,

    I have a lot of questions about spellcasting and the Ask a simple question, Awakened edition thread is so crowded that my questions get hidden there.
    • Shifting the Odds has primary factor Duration. It has an alternative function that you can use no more than Potency times. A Fate 3 mage casts the spell and uses one reach for Instant Casting and one for Advanced Duration, and gets 3 successes. As described:
      1. What potency value does the spell have?
      2. If instead of Advanced Duration, he reaches to switch primary factor to Potency, what is the duration of the spell?
      3. If
