Unless someone sees a problem, I am going to try to make the Intelligo / Vim magi work.
I saw some reference to an interview. Not sure how that will be handled, but I presume I need to get the design fleshed out and approved first?
Given the cosmology, how much vis does the personal vis source give? I am hoping it is 4. To make it more interesting, I was thinking of a plant that I harvest each quarter, that produces various kinds of vis, but my parens who gave it to me was never able to find the pattern to it. I would also take Skilled Parens as one of my virtues.
From reading the core book, I believe I can take Second Sight as an ability without spending a virtue on it?
Can I take "Understanding Supernatural" as a minor focus?
Given the premise, free study looks like it might be interesting to take. Any objection? (It may turn out to be less useful, but so be it.)
Given the setting, it strikes me that there is probably less interest in, and possibly even resistance to, hermetic breakthroughs. Would Driven to make a Major hermetic Breakthrough" be an acceptable flaw? At this stage he would be trying to get information about all kinds of supernatural phenomena to sue to inspire such a breakthrough.
