I hope it's not overly intrusive to start my own thread. I am in the early stages of thinking about a magus for this setting an, like most, want to fulfill a unique role. I've had a good look over the three PC magi, who all look very interesting, by the way, and have a good sense of what they're about, but I was wondering about the NPCs ... have they manifested any particular aptitudes at this point? I just want to make sure I don't cover the same ground.
One concept I am considering is a Criamon following the Path of Seeming. This would likely lead him in an Intellego direction, with a likely focus on Imaginem and/or Mentem. I've never really had the hang of Imaginem, but this might be an interesting opportunity to explore it. I might also look into Aquam, which is an art that I haven't had much opportunity to explore, but given the proximity to water, might not be inappropriate. Water also has wonderful divinatory connotations that seem appropriate.
Oh, judging by the other characters, it seems as though a magus about 10 years post gauntlet would be appropriate? I may have missed particular rulings on how those years can be spent, access to books, etc. I'll comb around a bit more through the threads.
One way or another, this looks like a very interesting Saga.
