    Arguably.

    That entirely depends on how symbolically you look at cancer.

    From a strictly scientific standpoint, you just need to remove the mutation/infection/misconfiguration from each cell. (Whichever type it is) One could argue that Life might be able to simply heal the damage in cells or order them to shift their control state or otherwise just fix things.

    I counter by pointing out the inability of Life to simply restore things that can't recover on their own. Regeneration is a fairly analogous spell effect.

    I'd further argue that cancer qualifies...

    After extracting it, you perfect it with what and how?
    Life could potentially fix the cancerous cells but I don't think making that Lasting fits.
    Life or Death should be able to isolate the cancerous cells from the set, however, and isolate and kill them.
    Having done that, the remnant could be expanded with Life and reinserted. Or, for that matter, simply reinserted.

    Personally, I'd allow a Perfecting effect guide healing such that it actually restores full function. In this case, it would need to be maintained for a few months to help the marrow restore selective...

  • The Warden: This being was a warden over a large prison but was so successful at crushing the spirits of his charges while maintaining order that his government took notice and the leaders brought him in to consult on various planned invasions of their enemies. (They expected guerrilla opposition) He gave them sound advice but released useful details to the opposition. The resulting action was bloody. His government demanded he explain why his plan had failed and he explained that they hadn't given him enough information. They granted him authority as a master of spies, and he swiftly set up a...

  • Gregory Greene: Schadenfreude, Shining Shadow, Mord -- Gregory was a human sorcerer who was so envious of the Grand Sage that he made pacts with the ancient and unspeakable for power, becoming like unto a demon or dark god. His Pillars are marked with his symbol of the Evil Eye and stand in dark places, drawing power to him and exerting control over those places. Greene subtly curses the works of others to make sure they can never rival his own, usually through their own sense of rivalry or jealousy. He particularly loves to see people overreach themselves and, thus, collapse their entire projects.With...

    -dice be added or subtracted from a yantra
    Hmm. Adding a die to a Yantra or adding two with Exceptional Success wouldn't shred things and would certainly be a nice effect. Prime 3 (Perfecting)
    Making a Yantra a pain to work with, on the other hand, is more likely Prime 2 (Fraying)

    -yantra casting time be accelerated or decelerated
    Presuming you're referring to the activation of Yantras, I still don't see it as a Prime-only thing. As a Reach 1 option for Time accelerations of mundane actions, (with Prime 2 (Ruling)) I like. I could be persuaded that there could be...
