Currens Research

Post by arcanus » Wed Jan 02, 2008 4:44 pm

Looking at the Macauitl, the weapon bears an inherent enchantment one that is aligned with its obsidian teeth or blades.
Dikoted Sickle is a minor Weapon Foci R: 1.
A grisly metahuman scalp some form of Spirit Foci: (R: 2) aligned with what you can tell are Blood Spirits.
Left Gold Torc: Manipulation Spell Foci: R: 2.
Right Gold Torc: Heal Spell Foci: R: 3

In terms of spells Curren has learned both Spells at the desired force.

He he, I just remembered this entry! And now I'll be able to use the healing foci now that I have the healing spell to go with it.

With the weapon and spirit foci, is there any way I could break these down and use the inherant magic in them to produce something else. ie Karma and the like. Or is that a 'sigh' :wink: Metatalent?

Also getting back up to date with the game as it is, what is in the PDF that the ghoul had on him? I would have asked Blackie if he could break any incryption/traps etc that may have been on it before I would look.

No it would a Ritual of Dismantling, a Metamantic Ritual which Curren could write, due to him having Metamagic, which would allow him to break down the items and uttlise their possessed Karma.

Following Black's decryption Curren finds the following spell formula:
Alleviate Allergy (Sunlight),
Astral Armor,
Armor,
Clout,
Flight,
Increase Initiative,
Levitate,
Lightning Bolt,
Manaball,
Manabolt,
Physical Barrier,
Stunbolt

I'm very interested in getting this done mate. What sort of Karma/Time would it require?

Could I use the current metaquest in Axis Umbra for the knowledge and further dropping of karma? Obviously we'll have to include it in our quest. :wink:

So all Thresholds complete, with the option of the two Hits over taking the base time down to 2 weeks, plus karmic reduction from the MetaQuest!

Four options available:
1. Off the Shelf via a SIN
2. Off the shelf via Fixer and Customise
3. Custom Warez through Black Contacts
4. Write your own

What would then be required would be to run the code and learn it, therefore converting it to a Form rather than software.

Who goes, you decide :idea:

Also we could add a geasa to it Frankie, to reduce the karma further?

Only in astral space, only standing on one leg etc!

If memory serves someone asked if I wanted to join the order.

How does that work with me being a so-called mundane...?
(I can assure you there's nothing mundane about me!!)

OOOPS!! I'm logged on as Hades but that is Mr Black asking the question!!

Its along the Lay Preacher or Acolyte route, the Mundane Order member attends any and all meetings/gatherings, undertakes/observes all Strictures and group tasks etc etc
Most Importantly the Mundane Order Member must invest karma into the Orders Avatar and Linkage.

In return they get the following, depending on the the amount of Karma they agree to invest (Regularly), they are denoted as either an Acolyte or Initiate.
Acolyte:Invest a modest sum at least monthly (Usually Lunar cycle or anniversary), they have access to base level magical benefits, group skills and/or powers, this works by them getting a virtual 'Magic Point', and this plus their Essence Rating governs the full effect of any abilities, however this remains static with no improvement.
Initiate:This requires a higher investment per month or more frequent contributions per months (As the Avatar has to work harder to maintain this).
This gives the Mundane Order Member access to escalating abilities, they gain the ability to have Virtual Initiate Levels, a greater number of powers, access to MetaTalents, which improve as they Initiate.

So quite beneficial

You're very welcome to join Blackie. 8) But you'll have to be careful with regards to the strictures laid down when the order was created.

It could be a right pain in the arse if we lose the avatar for a while for a members misdemeanors! :)

Morning All,
The game will resume six months after the SCIRE events in late July 2061.
Due to his downtime you have 20 Karma to spend on one of your characters, this cannot be split between characters.

Yes it can be spent on Initiation/Submersion or talents, as long as a sufficient backstory is posted on the Arcanepath.

Finally it can be used as Karma for Cash to facilitate any work that the characters may have undertaken within the 6 months or they could have had some time off :twisted:
