  • But didn’t Mage have those special Angels in both the Manifesto book and Ascension?...

  • Protection of the Golden Race - Dead Magic

    A Spirit 5 Prime 2 Rote for Dead Magic gave mages the ability to summon members of the Greek’s “Golden Race” myth, that was supposedly created before humanity. Has anyone ever decided on what this rote might specifically be able to accomplish?

    Personally, given the description of the Golden Ones, I suspect if this rote were successfully cast, you could convince them to send you some Hunters to help you out. Which might leave the more Zealous ones confused. What are some other possibilities?

    replied to Level 6 Caern?
    No way, in the modern era. It would have to be a unique plot device that would mark the ending/ birth of an age. If it existed there would have to be a unique story behind it, something along the lines of Gaia giving her chosen a place to make a last stand, the result of an epic quest that saved Gaia and healed the Wyrm, or maybe something that was dormant since the time before the Wyrm went mad, and Gaia preserves within herself for the fated moment that would decide everything.

    Alternatively, it could be a Mokole secret that is connected to the Dragon Kings, or the result of some...

  • This is exactly the feedback I wanted. Luck, easier access to divine favor, possible protection from Paradox, the power to speak truth that would be offensive from anyone else, and maybe power over the Dreaming and access to someone who has Changeling Lore 5+. This is all great, but should the possible protection from Paradox be counterbalanced with the risk of becoming a true Marauder? Perhaps The Fool, if you have made acceptable tribute to him beforehand can take your Willpower rating in Paradox, but the more he takes the higher you have to roll your willpower to avoid becoming a Marauder...

    What help can The Fool Arcana provide?

    I have been trying to flesh out the sort of help the different Major Arcana can provide. Whether it is allowing you to buy Backgrounds like Dream or Demesne with XP, or giving you guidance, I think they all have something to offer. The Fool seems a bit trickier than most, however.

    I personally think what he can offer you is the starting point to any journey you want. He seems like he is the first step of the Hero’s Journey, and he can help you get started with any goal you are after. This might manifest as the Destiny Background, should you wish to purchase it with XP or Flaws,...

  • Can Break Reality transmute Wyrm taint?

    Can a spirit with Break Reality transform a landscape infected with Wyrm taint into one that isn’t?

  • That is interesting. So many ways it could play out. I remember over a decade ago, when Revised painted the Technocracy as necessary and something the Traditions would have to learn to coexist beside, somebody mentioned that my Hermetic could play the role of Merlin, teaming up with moderate Technocrats (Knights of the Round Table) to protect the Technocracy from splitting up into civil war.

    My main problem with ending the Ascension War was that it left the world doomed, but without any serious way to fight for it. Tastes change, and looking back, I actually like the idea of an uneasy...

  • What would a Technocracy civil war mean?

    The books talk about its possibility, so I’m curious how it might play out. Is there any chance a Tradition Mage could mediate between the groups and earn a permanent cease fire between the factions? Possibly one that includes not brainwashing Orphans they pull off the street?

  • Sounds neat! I think I want all of my common use libraries in the chantry to be shrines dedicated to Clio, the Muse of the Written Word. Each section of the chantry is going to be a shrine dedicated to a different Muse, Major Arcana spirit, Archangel, Hermes, or planetary spirit....

  • Do Garou notice the handiwork of the Void Engineers?

    Garou protect the world from otherworldly horrors, same as the VE. Sure a lot of those threats are also from Earth, but a lot of bad things come from beyond. Should the Garou recognize that the VE are out there and killing stuff that they want dead? How noticed should the VEs be by the Garou Nation?

  • Never saw it, I just want a place that you can create that won’t be immediately spotted by Technocrat spy satellites. And rather than a labyrinth... did you ever read Courtney Crumrin when you were a kid? I’m just thinking this would be an opportunity for the Hermetics to create their own mini version of Doissetep on Earth....

  • What should a modern, major Hermetic Chantry look like?

    Say you have a summoner who gets a spirit, perhaps a Djinn, to use his magic to build you a Chantry somewhere beneath the Mohave desert in the midst of a powerful Node. The Hermetics make it their main chantry in the region. What shape would it take? Perhaps some sort of college for one or two hundred Hermetic acolytes to keep the paradigm in check and groom potential apprentices? Spirits of various subjects, like physics and history, teaching classes? Shrines with gigantic, marble statues of Hermes, the Four Archangels, the Tarot Arcana, Gaia/The Triple Faced Goddess, and the planets of our...

    A Chantry of idealists?

    So among the Society of Ether you have the Utopians, and among the Hermetics you have the proponents of Pymander. Among the other Traditions and Independents like Hollow Ones, what similar groups could you cobble together to create a cabal or idealists that would unite to quietly transform a major city into their ideal of a perfect society?
