    It’s only vulgar if you don’t establish in advance that the universe occasionally spins around random points.

    (Also why I like playing Mind mages. The few times I need to use vulgar magic, nobody notices for some reason…)

    This is why you always take some ranks in the Blatancy talent.

    Gotta pay lip service to the mortal paradigm.

    Haha, I’ve heard that one for Toronto:

    Q: How many Torontonians does it take to screw in a light bulb?

    A: Just one: They hold the light bulb and the world revolves around them. ;D

    Only two, but they have to figure out the shrinking spell first.

    Is the gang going to get into a Mage game anytime soon? One of my favorite WoD games.

    Finally caught up with the comic again. Can’t wait for the changeling campaign story line to continue.

  8. What am I missing? How is “PARADOX!!” an appropriate title?

    It is sad that this punning has LED to lightbulb jokes.

    This is why I played a Stage Magician. It isn’t vulgar if the audience has the preconception that it is stagecraft.

    To elaborate. I was Job from Arrested Development. And I disguised my spells as poorly performed magic tricks, or as he put it “ILLUUUUSIONS!”

    I do this EVERY time I screw in a light bulb. Prove me wrong.

    How many engineers does it take to screw in a light bulb?
    None. They build a robot to do it for them.

    Thinking about buying Mage, but would it be better to start with Ascension 2e, or NWoD Awakening? I mean, I already have the NWoD book and Changeling: the Lost, but on the other hand I hear that the original Mage is a better system. Thoughts?

  15. Laarh Says:

    Ascension 2e is just better. Awakening is much simpler but it also lack freedom of making your own spells on the spot. Just be sure not to buy 1e, unless you want your vampires to be turned into lawnchairs xD

    You want Revised or 20th Anniversary Mage.

    @Gene…from what I can tell on the Mage wiki, ‘paradox’ is the term for when a mage does something against the typical beliefs of the non-magical populace. You don’t have to go to Escherian or Banach-Tarski lengths to develop a paradox, you just have to make the world do something that we would view as not possible.
    At least…I think that is how it works.
