Hi, I'm looking at this virtue to try and make something useful of It without going the houserule way, can you give me your opinion on those application of the virtue ?
Fist one question about the reading of the virtue
when you add a requisite that is not needed for the spell to work but improves the effect of the spell you usually increase the level of the spell by 1 magnitude, is it still needed with this virtue ?
Eg : If I had an ignem requisite to mighty torrent of water to make the water boiling hot adding +3 damage with multiplier depending on surface of body covered with water (( as suggested p 181) most of the time x3 imho as half the body covered) do I add 1 magnitude or not ?
Second : interaction with magical focus
Usually magical focus are less efficient with spells with requisite, as this virtues states that you can ignore the requisite, does it mean the arts are doubled as normal ?
Eg : a magus with minor magical focus with volcanoes uses the spell "Awaken Sleeping Giant!" ReTe(Ig) 45 (hermetic project p 13)
He has Re 16 Te 15 and Ig 5 and Stamina 0 what's his casting total ? :
I'm trying to use this with a magus specializing mostly in Aquam and to a lesser extend in Terram and Auram do you have any idea of interesting application of requisites for such a mage ?
Have you ever used this virtue in one of your character ?
