With two Merinita magi in our group, one who has already initiated the mystery of Becoming and another one who would be extremely interested if he ever learns about it, I'm coming to the point where I want to make sure that I understand the rules right.
Probably most of my questions have already been discussed in depth, but I couldn't find the proper threads.
I know that many people regard Becoming as overpowered but please keep that out of this thread.
1.: Is Vis needed for the transformation rituals? So far we ruled yes, but I'm not 100% certain.
2.: By Transforming the Spirit the magus sacrifices The Gift, do the negative consequences of The Gift vanish as well?
3.: Do the healing rules for unchanging immortals (TMRE p.135) apply after Transforming the Body?
4.: Do the rules about the physical form of Faeries (ROP: F p.47 f.) apply?
5.: Is a transformed magus Incognizant, Narrowly or Highly Cognizant or nothing like that?
6.: Is Faerie Sight gained by Tansforming the Body?
7.: Will a transforming magus acquire the Virtues: Humanoid Faerie, Passes for Human and Infiltrator? If yes, after which transformation, Transformation of the Body or after all three transformations? What would be suitable corresponding Flaws?
8.: Can a magus with Faerie Raised Magic still learn spells with experience points after Transforming the Spirit?
9.: When a tainted magus with The Gift as a false power transforms the spirit, does he loose the taint? Will he register as a infernally tainted faerie? What happens to powers gained through Infernal Blessing?
Thanks in advance!
