ANother World of Darkness - Alpha Network
“As above, so below. – Excerpt from the Rules of Magic…”
The weaving & casting of Arcana is now pretty much impossible today though was possible in the past.
Spontaneous, free form spell casting without the careful preparation of a tried and tested formula. These need not be memorised or prepared beforehand but with those advantages come huge downsizes. The threat of danger is immense, especially since the Avatar Storms and the Sixth Great Maelstrom. Paradox is much more deadly and failure is now very likely without a Rote. It is often a last resort and even then, it’s best to refrain from Riffing.
