I am looking at the immortality options for my Verditius magus. It looks like he will be going down the route of Hermetic Alchemy and the Greater Elixer.
At first I was concerned about the amount of XP he could store in his talisman, but after reading the errata that is no-longer an issue.
Storing XP, however, is an issue.
The magus makes an enchantment into his talisman, and each 10 points allows him to learn 1XP. However, can he use a lab-text to make it easier?
Season 1: He reads a tractatus and gains 10XP.
Season 2: He has a lab-total of 100 which enables him to put a lvl 50 enchantment into his talisman - he remembers 5XP of the previous season.
Season 3: He reads another 10XP tractatus
Season 4: He now uses the lab-text from season 2 to put two lvl 50 enchantments into his talisman, saving all of the 10XP he gained.
Can he use his own lab-texts, or is each season of work different from the others? I can see arguments both ways.
If a magus cannot use his own lab-texts, can he re-read a tractatus to gain the benefit he lost? In season 3 can he re-read the text from season 1 to gain the lost XP?
I would argue he could, as he has forgotten half of it. He is in effect reading it over 2 seasons to get the full benefit from it. He is not reading it twice
Can magi with Magical Might suffer from acclimitization if they live in a weak or non-existant aura?
Can magi with high might generate their own magical auras - like some beings do?
What do you guys think?
