  • Mh, I have to say, that *is* something that I personally lean towards;
    With changed perceptions and a whole different understanding of the world and reality comes a different mindset and set of behaviors. We don't even need to go as far as Mages - in our very RL, humans that have grown up in vasty different or niece cultures (especially the extremes of *still existing* hunter-gatherer tribal vs. industrialized) can already be utterly baffled at each other's behaviors and mindsets and needs and conceptual differences and cultural quirks. And that's just due to different, mundane RL circumstance...

  • And, since it's Mage, of course high Arete might *help* with Ascension...but in-game as well as out-of-game it is still not *known* what the requirements for Ascension are - or even what the process of Ascension looks like or ends with, aside of some vague 'something something other plane of existance maybe?'.

    I remember a short-story in one of the books or novels, where a relatively young and rather...normal everyday Mage character has simply vanished, and there is an underlying feeling from the narrator and others involved that she Ascended and is..gone. She wasn't an Archmage or,...

  • The Technocracy ( or rather Order Of Reason ) always were the inventors if I recall right, but some Etherites managed to also create some small batches.

  • Archspheres are, as Dataweaver points out, not 'Vanilla'. They are discouraged, and Brucato, at least, also won't make any updates to their old write-ups.

    That said, Archspheres are also not *really* necessary in M20 anymore. Several things from Revised that were in the realm of Archspheres are now in the realm of 5th level sphere levels.

    'Mass-creation of life' is pretty much possible with lots of succesesses and a generous usage of the 'targets' rule.
    Shifting other people into animal larger or smaller thaa their original mass used to be Life 6. Now it's just...

    replied to All statted Archmages
    I always read those advices on how to handle Voormas (the spoiler-tagged sections) with high amusement, because I always felt like they needed the tagged on line "If you survive the first turn against him, anyways."

    replied to Effects the "HAB" can't observe
    Two things are also worth noting:

    !) It's important that the "HAB" is not seen as "What if I plucked a random person in the area and made them see this?". The HAB is an amalgam of the averages of all people in the Reality Zone - education, beliefs, etc.
    This is important in order to understand how the Reality Zones work - or rather, how they can be changed. The HAB always represents what you'd get if you combined all folks in the Zone, and average'd their properties.
    This also eliminates the problem of "But what *if* the randomly plucked HAB happens...
