  • The Wraith appears fairly quickly, but unless he has particularly high willpower he will remain trapped in a caul until he is reaped. In theory a wraith could remain in his caul for decades, however Wraith 20th (I don't think this is in earlier editions) says that extended time in the caul weakens Wraiths and slowly turns them into drones. There's not a timeframe indicated, but I would guess that the normal window is a few weeks or months before the damage starts happening. Perhaps a Wraith with particularly strong passions (i.e. one on par with a starting PC) could last a year or two....

  • No one looks up one day and decides, "Hey, I'm going to start believing in a bunch of ancient shamanistic practices. I guess I better go down to the library and figure out what they are."

What I'm trying to say is that your backstory, whatever it is, should already establish your baseline knowledge with an otherwise esoteric field of knowledge. That doesn't mean your character is done learning, just that they have enough to function while they...

    Things like incense, hypnotism, and drugs are at least somewhat appropriate in a counselor's office. Your character can use them to ritually cast during counseling sessions without raising any eyebrows, which will let her choose her spells specifically for the person in front of her.

    If her instruments are odd but small, like sympathetic connections (using pieces of the target's hair or blood) and subtle but visible chiminage (offerings...

  • Note that the Technocracy didn't get where they are today through overwhelming power. They got where they are today through overwhelming leverage. They play to their strengths. They look for unprotected weak points where they can undermine belief in other paradigms or shore up belief in their own. You can write them so that they don't seem like ubermages by focusing on the utility of their effects rather than the power. The ability to just move in and out of military installations is a good one in that regard. It is both broader and more specific than it has to be, though. It is so much...
