Quote1. Are magical aptitudes stated correctly (referring to the PC's in the "Malleus Mallficarum" thread)? I mean, should the Prayer be covered by Priest or Bishop? I think it's not the case, taking Savonarola as an example: his Bishop level 3 accounts for his hierarchy and/or Faith, but his Prayer aptitude should be lower...
Quote2. The level in the magical aptitudes should be important? How can this be supported by the rules? That is, could anyone state some examples for this? One thing I have in my mind deals with a Price for a magical fact that forces a minimum level in the aptitude in order to function, but what about using the aptitude in conflicts?
Quote3. Are "compound" prices legal or can be veto-ed by the players or the GM as abussive?
Quote4. As players advance in the game, they can use their Power tokens to raise PCs' Aptitudes. Can the GM use his/hers to advance the NPCs' to keep up some balance? I'm not meaning to spend the spare tokens I still have at the end of the session just for pumping up mi NPCs. Should I better use them in conflicts as Action tokens instead?

Quote from: GB Steve on June 06, 2007, 05:22:03 AMAs regards spending tokens, you only need to spend a token once in a session for that fact to be activated for the whole session. I don't see that as a negative thing. It means that characters are constrained by the chosen level of magic. But of course, in your theme document, you can specify that magic is always active after the sacrifice.Most of our magical facts, the ones that create spell-like effects, tend to be for general use. Anyone who knows about magic can use them as long as they pay the price. Is this the same for you or are your facts very tightly defined for only one character?
