    replied to Mayo vs Mustard
    The One World of Darkness promotion trailer showed Magey things, as well as their presentation at the con in Berlin pretty much has shown Mage side-by-side with Vampire and Werewolf as one of the three main gamelines that makes up the One WoD to them. That and the Mage Prelude game they put out. So yeah. It's pretty much in the pipeline, but with zero info on it yet....

    replied to Technocratic Seeking.
    I don't really agree with this. Technocrats, just like Traditionalists, still can have classic Seekings that happen in Mindscapes - they simply might consider them mere dreams or result of meditation...which is a thing they actually do, especially in NWO ranks.

    So, the end result might be a Technocrat waking up in a more or less refined 'Eureka!' moment, without considering what they went through being something metaphysical.

    But the process for both groups is very much the same - people with 'Circumspect Avatar' tend to have their seekings in the real world, people without...

  • Or, in other words, all the Mages that actually believe in-game that the whole of reality is shaped by human beliefs, also would as a direct consequence have the Purple Paradigm. Which just isn't the case; The vast majority don't....

    Actually, there is a mention of an Oneira by name in non-mage material - Umbra: The Velvet Shadow mentions that Chimera is 'not just a totem, but also the greatest of the Oneira'.

    From what I can see, in none of the books that mention the Oneira any names are dropped. The only thing that you get is mentions that the Dream Lords often appear as archetypes of the Mage Tarot.

    For reference, the books are:

    * Mage 2nd Edition
    * Beyond the Barriers: The book of worlds
    * Sorceror Revised
    * Infinite Tapestry
    * Ascension
    * Mage 20th Anniversary

    Maybe I overlooked something, but those are the books that mention the dream lords.

    See, here's the thing about that...
    I don't do facebook, or like to browse through blog posts to find official answers for things. There have been, from what I heard, a lot of FAQ-style online posts even back in the original WW days about some of their books, decisions and rules. I think Just John mentioned something along those lines multiple times.

    The funny thing is, we still have those books from those days, but finding those posts is next to impossible.
    An online FAQ for current books works fine *right now*. But sites vanish. get moved, posts get wiped or simply lost...

    And my advice would be:
    Consider that there are enough players who don't want their books to be simply dry writing and listings of rules, and might enjoy his style. I do.

    While I'd say that, yes, there are certainly parts that are too wordy (The resonance chapter comes to mind - that one somewhat grinds my gears in how it dances around the explanation of the concepts over and over...), and unnecessary (Many of the secondary abilities which are just specialties of normal abilites) I very much enjoy that he likes to give lots of examples, cross-references between parts of the...
