  • Where can I find rules for this alternate Duel? Is it in the section about Astral Realms, where Attributes are converted to Power, Finesse and Resistance?...

    Certain places closer to the supernal would be free, yes. Had not thought much about the lower realms though....

    ​Interesting suggestions, all of them. Have you tried these yourself and how did that go?




    1: ​I kind of like this one, especially if I would wish to drive home the idea of the Fallen World as a really repressive place where mages are not welcome.

    ​2: These options are pretty close to the idea I started out with, namely to drive home the idea that the Fallen World is limiting and tainted enough to require a cost for even simpler spells. In this way, I still drive that point home but hopefully in a more elegant fashion.

    ​3: I fear...

    Increasing Mana Costs

    I read the homebrew document of Pendragon and was very interested in their houserule of having ALL improvised spells and Rotes have a baseline cost of 1 mana. Praxes would not have this cost.
    Alternate houserules I have been thinking about is having all non-ritual spells cost mana instead of a Reach, but that might be something for a different discussion.

    Has anyone tried any of these or similar rules? How did it change your games?

    If I were to try it, what would you think about the potential effects?
    ​I am thinking:
    1) It limits the sheer power of...
