I haven't followed this whole thread but a mage's strongest moves are A) learn the lay of the land, and B) get potential threats to fight each other.

Example: a Sabbat pack wants to take over a nightclub diatrict were satyr allies of the mage cabal (Hermetics and intellectually inclined C of X) have a freehold. The NWO is snooping in the area too. And the local Bonegnawers, allies of the Satyrs, are being bullied by Shadow Lords that want the Bonegnawer caern.

Answer: use conjunctive effects of Time and Entropy to have the Sabbat, the NWO, and the Shadow Lords constantly...
