  • Really the only sure way to get players to take the threat of their character dying in combat seriously is to kill one, then make the player write up a new, starting character. After that every time he feels like the weak hitter on the roster will be a reminder to him and all his popcorn crunching buddies that combat really does come with negative consequences.
    ​It's the unconscious belief in protagonist immortality that causes their cavalier attitudes.

    replied to Spirits as Pagan Gods
    Spirits that take on the roles of 'Gods' don't have to be Magath. Take the lake spirit for example, instead of an ancient spirit of a lake that takes on new aspects to match the worship of humans along its shores, that worship generates resonance that gives rise to a new spirit that embodies all of those aspects from its inception. Which then feeds upon the resonance of human worship until it grows strong enough to either force the older spirit to make room or else just eats the older spirit.
    ​Most if not all of the artificial spirits would be Magath if they hadn't originally formed...

    replied to Sell me on the orders
    I have to agree that the best way to play up politics in Mage is to leverage the things the Orders have in common, while creating tension with their differences.
    ​Personally I would relegate the Seers to the shadowy edges of the campaign, after all politics requires a willingness to actually talk to each other (even if all you do is scream insults). The Seers instead fill the role of dangerous outsiders who threaten to up end everyone's wheel barrow.
    For example:
    ​There has been a recent and very public discovery of a Time Before relic hidden within the Shadow in a Place...

    replied to Mysteries of St. Louis
    Out of curiosity I looked up St. Louis on the internet and saw a mention of numerous natural caves along the river. Maybe play it up as having a River Styx like connection, with the caves along the river being naturally occurring passages to the Lower Realms.
    ​Rivers and the after life were commonly connected in ancient cultures.

    replied to Mysteries of St. Louis
    St. Louis, as symbolized by the Arch, has long been seen as a gateway between the east and west as divided by the Mississippi River.
    ​The Mississippi and Missouri Rivers meet here, along with others, lending to the presence of powerful Ley Lines.
    ​In its early years the city existed in a sort of legal limbo, with out the ruling presence of a greater nation. Perhaps among its founders were several Nameless Mages who sought to escape the influence of the Pentacle.
    This was a major site of the Mound Builders.

    Ever see "Doctor Strangelove"?
    I'm not familiar with the original setting but would guess the answer is that all those who knew died.

    Does the entire setting take place beneath Moscow, or are there tunnels connecting it to more distant cities?

    replied to [2E] Small town threats
    When it comes to a Ban or Bane for such a character at the top of the list should be 'being held up to ridicule'.
    Anything that makes them look bad or worse, gets them laughed at by the general populous.

    replied to Pitch me your campaign ideas
    Merlin is a recognized and even celebrated Arch master who ascended in the UK, now the runes in the streets of London are referring to the return of the 'Once and Future King'.
    ​The Guardians are getting all excited about the coming of the Heromagus.
    ​The Guardians are getting all worked up about a possibly false Heromagus.
    ​As if to add fuel to the fire the runes predict events that must happen before his return, the Consillium is frozen as members argue whether or not to fulfil them only to discover that the Seers already have.
    ​Is the 'Once and Future King'...
