    replied to Is someone watching me?
    I'm not sure it's written explicitly in the rules. I'm almost completely certain that Dave has specifically mentioned somewhere here on the forums that sympathy is indeed asymmetric. Somewhere, anyways. If I find it in the book I'll let you know.

  • Ah, I had forgotten that praxis can only be purchased with arcane xp. Thanks Hardwire for allowing that. As to the merits, I mentioned that they were in the extended section.

  • And here he is. Neal Caffrey: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B_...1A4WDVLSnRTclU

    Xp spent on: 1 dot each of Mind, Space, and Life, 1 dot gnosis, 1 dot of firearms, and the praxis Incognito Presence. In addition to this, a few of his merit dots are listed in the expanded section in order to make room for future merit dots.

    I still need to write up his history.

    Comments are welcome.

  • Ok, finally had some time to sit down and reply. SO! I figured out what I wanted to play. I'm thinking of a reclaimer, someone that finds and "reclaims" stolen imbued items and artifacts for the Mysterium. This fits perfectly into the Mastigos archetype. I'll see if I can download a proper pdf reader so that I can upload a completed sheet to google docs for you all.

  • Still working through my character's concept. At first I was thinking of a mage artist, then an occult and crime private eye. However, the sheer utility of Death magic for the latter concept has me moving away from it (I'm not against Death magic per se, but I don't want my character to be focused on that).

    So now I'm considering a character that's actually removed from normal society. I'm still with my family atm, so it'll be a little bit before I can download adobe reader to fill in a sheet like everyone else's (I've been using the character creator offered in one of the mage t...

  • Ah, I missed the rote. Sorry about that. Btw, does anyone know what program I need in order to use the interactive pdf character sheets? I can download them fine, but they act as read only documents.

  • Wow, this thing is definitely progressing!

    I took a close look at the other three character sheets and found a few things that seemed slightly off. A couple of them are more my opinion, but hopefully what I have to say about them is still helpful.
    1. It seems Ignis has spent 19 xp, not 20. I count 6 merit dots above starting (6xp), 1 arcana dot above starting (4xp), 1 gnosis above starting (5xp since merits weren't traded for gnosis), and 2 skill dots above starting (4xp).
    2. Doctor Luck should have a second obsession
    3. (opinion) Doctor Luck's obsession with mastering...

  • The safe space/sanctum bit is a great idea. That being said, I will probably flavor the safe space dot as a spell my character has cast.

    My character will be in the Mysterium, others are welcome to choose what they want.

  • If there is anything I can do that would assist you, please let me know. I'd be happy to create a small cabal of npc mages, or a small group of sleepwalkers.

    And yes, I'm having a very hard time falling asleep atm. I should have been asleep 3 hours ago....

  • Oh, wow! An offer for a St. That's great!

    As to the program we use to communicate, so long as it is real time and fairly well known I'm good with it. It'd be best if we could at least get audio from everyone.

    As to my availability, I work Sunday night through Thursday night from 7:00 p.m est (or 11:00 pm gmt?) to 4 a.m. est (or 8 gmt?). My housemates and I hold house meetings every other Friday after I get back from my small group at church, so those Fridays would be a no go. Anyways, I wouldn't be able to start until about 10:00 p.m. est (2.00 a.m. gmt?) on Fridays where...

  • I can get up as early as 3 pm est (11 gmt?) on saturdays, possibly 2, though that'd be pushing it
    I'd also need at least 30 minutes from then just to wake up.

    I would be ok with meeting every two weeks, though, if everyone else is ok with it.

    As to mythicgm, I think the largest deficiency it might have for mage 2e is aiding us in creating mysteries. It seems like it could do villians decently, but mysteries are almost by definition opposite of what it seems it can do. We'll have to figure that one out somehow, perhaps have a rotating roster of who is creating the...

  • Hmm, it does seem like MythicGM could possibly work, though it is obviously a lot less desirable than a full ST. As to meeting times, I'd like to clarify that I would not be available until after 10:00 p.m. on Fridays, though around 6 on Saturdays. Given I work 3rd shift right now I could stay up long after that, but I doubt most people want to start that late.

  • Ah, I see. It's unfortunate then that my schedule doesn't work out this coming Saturday. I'll keep it in mind come your next one shot.

    Fictional Dynasty : welcome! An all mystagogue group would definitely be interesting. Four new mages to a concilium that join together as a cabal and all join the same order would give that order a pretty decent bump in political power, among other things. And don't worry about possibly doubling down on paths, it seems that your character's concept and Taiji's are different.

    Well, that's four players that are interested. I wonder if we...

  • Mrmdubois : Aye, it doesn't strictly have to be skype, but this weekend doesn't look good for me. And while I am craving some mage, one of the things I like most about these rpgs is the ability to see long term progress in both character development and story development. Thanks for the offer though. If this weekend did work out for me I'd definitely try to join in.

    Also, welcome wtaylorjr2001. Having an Acanthus would help to make the cabal a little bit more well rounded, so great!

  • Drat. Wish I could join you, but I'll probably still be asleep at the time (I usually don't wake up until 3-5 pm). Also, this weekend I'll be visiting my family. Thanks for the offer though.

  • Ah. I see. Makes sense. It's a natural complement to his Forces focus. Interestingly enough, I feel the same way about Life and both Mind and Space. Life magic is a natural complement to Mind magic, combining to give perfect control of both the body and mind. It also helps a Space mage handle some of the crazy crap one can get into by all that exploration they tend to do.

  • The character I'm envisioning would have an obsession with irises and portal magic (emphasis on Space), and would be hubristic (i.e. apathetic) about the connections formed to create and explore such magic.

    So, HTaiji, out of curiosity, what made you want to go with Obrimos over Moros? I'm with you there, I personally prefer the Obrimos path over the Moros myself, but given that the alchemist is one of the achetypes of the Moros, its an interesting twist to see an Obrimos pursuing that archetype.

  • Fair enough. I just have seen other people talk about alchemy as if they were talking about potions or other cool, non Mage magic. The way you said he was an alchemist without him being a Moros made me think you might have meant something like that. That's why I was looking for clarification.

    In any case, yeah, we just need a storyteller now.

    As to my character, I was actually thinking of tying his awakening into the main mystery at Salamanca. Like, he'd been a decent businessman before and had been on a vacation with his girlfriend and her family. Unknown to him his...

  • Hehehe! I love to see that enthusiasm!

    Also, it's nice to see another fellow mystagogue! Having two players in that order makes doing internal affairs much more interesting.

    As to alchemist...how do you mean? My understanding of alchemy in Mage is that it's basically the Matter arcanum.

  • Looking for a Mage skype game

    The title basically explains it. Pbp just fall apart far too easily. I find that a good first few sessions in real time can launch a game so much farther forward than several months of play by post can. This in turn breathes a lot of life into the interest of the game.

    So, that being said, I would like to be one of the players. I don't feel comfortable enough with running a game myself, and I'm itching to figure out mysteries during game play.

    I would like the setting to be Salamanca Spain, as the central mystery to that location is very intriguing to me (this is negotiable)....
