Hi, I would like some input on this proposed initiation script. This is for a character in the Thebean Tribunal that is part of a mystery cult associated and run by the Witches of Thessaly. How does the Script sound? Do you think a Sympathy Bonus of +1 is too little or too much?
The Mystagogue and Initiate spend a season wherein the Mystagogue questions the Initiates about the Goetic Arts and leads the Initiate into developing insights into the similarities of the Goetic Arts to Hermetic Arts. After this season, the Mystagogue and Initiate travel to the temple of Hecate in the caves of Erebos and arrive by August 13th. On the night of August 13th, the Initiate must sacrifice a black dog into the service of Hecate. and drink a concoction of yarrow, mandrake, and honey mixed with the Initiate's own blood in a cup made of yew. After drinking this, the Initiate must meditate and will receive a vision during their meditation of Hecate. Hecate will ask the Initiate to swear a vow to respect the sanctity of the Witches of Thessaly and to ensure that no persecution comes to any Witch without due cause (Vow). After swearing this, Hecate will instruct the Initiate in the ways of Hermetic Sorcery. While this will all occur on the night of August 13th, the Initiate may experience a distorted source of time during the vision. By the morning of August 14th, the Initiate will have woken up and will have discovered that aligning oneself to cthonic influences so greatly also means that upon entering an aura of the Divine of sufficient strength (4+) the Initiate will bleed spontaneously from their orifices.
Script Bonus: Mystagogue's Time (+3), Specific Time and Place (+3), Medium Ordeal (Two Minor Flaws gained)(+6), Sympathy (+1)
