Most of the Nature Lore choices--Forest, Mountain, Water, etc--can be construed as kinds of places, and everything is straightforward. Have an Area Lore for the place, mundane and supernatural denizens of the place are helpful, and so on. No problem.
But what about "Animal?" How does this work?
grin This is in support of Buttercup, for the upcoming Andorra PBeM.
Once again Im astounded at how what I thought to be a quite clever and unique character concept ends up being shared by another players. lol. Must be Roleplayers sympathetic connection or something lol.
My guy for the Andorra game is built around a variant of the nature lore with a an aspect in shapeshifting (when necessary). We might have to have our own sub-fraternity (sorority?) next to the Knights. hmm if Buttercup is a female, could this possibly lead to a wildist love affair between magi?
Animal would work with animals, simple as. Its not geographic specific but species specific since Animals are a part of nature.
"2 An awareness of the supernatural elements of the area...
"3 The maga can locate vis in the area....
"4 An understanding with the area's supernatural residents....
"5 The maga can communicate fluently with nature in the area....
And so on. Everything refers to an area.
So it's not so simple to me; I would like to know how this works.
I also suspect that our characters will integrate Nature Lore into their lives quite differently. I'm looking to create either a Disney princess (you know, she flings open the window and all the animals come and help her; I'm thinking about giving her some singing too....) or an Invincible Sword Princess (Timothy's Criamon stuff almost does exactly what I want it to) or maybe a combination of the two. Or something.
As for having an affair, I'm confident that Buttercup will settle for nothing less than True Love's Kiss. :>
Make whatever kind of crazy characters you want
As long as you guys all have fun, that's all that matters.
And Andorra was never very proper Large Flambbeau legacy, yes, byr every House of the Order has some legacy there as well.
