    Wisdom limiting mages works if the players are good actors and good sports. I do it to myself and typically play around with wisdom 5 for my go to character.

    I've also delightfully had a player figure out who to trust and who not to because they paid attention to the long-term nimbuses of my npcs, and deduces wisdoms from that.

    I understand why people hate wisdom as a stat, its not as elegant as say, cover or harmony.

    But it has been useful for me, at least.

    If I could offer any homebrew advice to add a carrot ro anyone who wants something more...

  • This got kind of out of hand. I am sorry for this, I didn't intend for this to go this way...

    Umm, this is about being excited for signs of sorcery right? Who else is excited to do "touch the supernal again" stories with obsessed mages craving the supernal world deeper than mage sight once more? Aedes and all.

    I don't know about that... My previous ST and I had a serious falling out over stuff like that, and even here on the forums I get the impression that doing something "just because it sounds fun" is a lousy excuse. I probably need more sobering reminders that being a skilled player and helping the ST tell their story is more important than character arcs for tabletops.

    I don't know what I was thinking. I think it was to do with supernal ascension in an archmage game but I can't tell anymore how bad of an idea that is

    I think the wisdom trackers biggest benefit is how it affects your nimbus. That's what sells it for me, is a easy indication of your progress to losing control of yourself in the narrative, for longer scale stories. How it influences the nimbus and thus people around you can set off additional story hooks or fluff for downtime.

    Now, if your wisdom is low and the character doesn't think they've been unwise, and their colleagues agree that certain recent actions were necessary, but your nimbus is still out of control, this disconnect from how the character feels about their intangible...

    I don't have a good answer. Sorry. It's just kind of personal.

    Cool about the ant thing. Thats clever. I don't have a clever answer....

  • I kinda agree and I think thats why Thyrsus having the innocent killer merit made sense.

    But I'd say it is because of the depth of selfishness it embodies. You don't need them for sustenance. You're just greedy, or impatient. Even if its an animal, what gives you the right to take a life to give yourself momentary power? Isnt that the embodiment of what makes humans so awful? Does that make you any better than a vampire?

    Buuuut. What if you also planned to eat the animal or honor its spirit in the hisil or flat out don't see vampires as inherently evil? And animal sacrifice...

  • Maybe it would lack the potency required or have some other slippery slope to tempt mages with? Blood sacrifice in Mage only counts if a life is taken, for example. Perhaps small samples simply don't produce the qualities of a distilled, massive sampling of perfected blood from a single person....
