- Legacies are Path oriented. The act of forging a soul heralds a further shift in a mage’s understanding of his magical path -- his Watchtower -- more than any specific decree.
- Legacies are cultural. Certainly there are many magical traditions in the world but only a few which find their homes and their foundations in Edinburgh.
- Legacies influence praxis. Joining a legacy means fundamentally changing the way you think about magic, the way you cast it, the way you interact with it. Imagine light shining through a pane of glass. Colour that glass and put a new design on it, and the light's qualities change.
Players are encouraged to develop thematically rooted legacies on Revelations. Custom legacies may be considered for inclusion if they fulfill a need not covered by other legacies, support and create roleplay, and fit tightly with game theme. In all cases, approval of custom work will be subject to comprehensive review by theme leads and the game director for mechanical balance and RP hooks.
Please submit a concept for your legacy before sending any material. Your pitch must include a premise, summary, proposed theme, and description of how it fits on Revelations. Your pitch is not guaranteed approval.
Legacies from the Mage rulebooks will be reviewed on a case by case basis. Approved legacies will be adapted to the game theme, including any rule modifications to work well in a MU* environment, and must be learned from a mentor.
Please submit a pitch for the legacy, including book and page reference, and proposed theme or description of how it fits on the game.
