Increasing Arete

Post by Warpmind on Thu Jun 18, 2015 1:15 pm

Quick question which occurred to me - and this probably won't be particularly relevant for quite some time, but it's good to have it clarified right away.

How do we go about raising our Arete as the story advances? Presumably, there'll be a bit more to it that "I pay a buttload of XP and increast my Arete by one point"...

(And I'm not asking about what the rulebook says, I'm asking in context of how we'll sort it out in this forum game.)

You go through a Seeking, now a Seeking is a spiritual quest made by the Mage's Avatar, in many ways it resemble a Quiet, though some magi have very practical Seekings where the whole thing happens in the physical world with challenges the Mage faces, but usually the Mage go into a mindscape and go through a challenge there and if they pass they get a dot more of Arete. Seekings happen when the Avatar decide it's host is ready for them.

Usually one would play out a Seeking with the other players helping out by playing some of the characters the Mage in question meet during his spiritual quest.

...and like I said, the question was regarding the practical aspect of it in the forum, not the abstracted explanation of the rules. Smile

We will play out the seeking in it's own IC thread.
