Legacy’s Attainment

1st Attainment: Commanding the Inanimate

Prerequisites: Gnosis 3, Matter 2 (primary), Spirit 1, Persuasion 2, Craft 1

The mage can control mechanical and electrical devices in a manner similar to the “Control Object” spell (pg 198, Silver Ladder). The mage accomplishes this control by verbally speaking to the device and asking it to perform the desired function. In addition, the mage gains the ability to hear, speak to the spirits in objects and also to sense the presence of and communicate with unseen spirits in Twilight, in a manner similar to the “Spirit Tongue” (Mage: The Awakening, pg 246).
Using any of these abilities requires the mage to make a Presence + Persuasion + Matter roll.

By talking to the spirit of an object, the mage can also sometimes learn roughly how and when
it has been used and other similar details even its limited awareness might notice. The spirits inside ordinary objects understand little about the surrounding world, but they know themselves exceedingly well. Any successes rolled when talking to a damaged object about what is wrong with it give the mage 1 additional die to roll for attempts to repair the object.

Bio:

Born in the 80’s, Eugene’s life was a constant struggle to fit in, his classmates did not like him cause he was smart, but none of them asked him to help them or do their homework or to copy his work. His teachers didn’t know how to handle a smart student, one frequently smarter than them, and he knew it. So they did what any overworked, underpaid teacher would do…fudge his scores downward to smear his record. What they did not expect was that the ONE day they alter scores, karma was watching. A member of the Board of Education was double-checking the test scores and came across a paper where the score did not match the teacher’s record. The scandal became headline news, teachers were fired and Eugene and his parents had to leave the community for fear of retribution.

His college years favored him MUCH better, with the computer age in full swing, his natural skill easily landed him a job in the college library. His first year was just general education and undecided major, but his second year he went for a History Major. On his 3rd year while researching a paper he came across a misplaced book in the library with of all things a feather as a page holder. He remembers flipping open the book to the page in slow-motion, and just as it opened, the world around him opened with it and before him was a golden path among the clouds that lead to a golden tower of blazing fire and light and what looked like birds among the lightning struck sky, but as he got under it he realized they were winged humans, Angels. The Angel guarding the Tower pointed to the feather, which he offered up. The Angel examined it for a bit then handed it back and let him enter, bidding him to use the gold. Inside, in an almost dreamlike trance of knowing exactly what to do, Eugene went to a spot on the wall that called to him, dipped the feather in the liquid gold ink and wrote his name in the Watchtower of the Golden Key.

Eugene was not a religious person. So with his sudden shift in focus and waning interest in his classes, It wasn’t long before someone else met with him and gave him a story of Atlantis…and MAGIC.

He easily fell right into the Silver Ladder, learning Glyphs as if another computer language, and translating ancient Atlantean and uploading translations to secure websites. However his new job was not time compatible with his librarian job or college classes, and they gradually fell to the side and eventually off altogether, causing his loans to be called in and his first abuse of magic…Force-hacking his bank to credit his account with enough money to pay off his loans and a little extra. After which he closed the account, withdrew from college and from sleeper society almost completely.

His reason for moving to St. Louis is fewer mages, Seattle is a thriving mixing pot of multiple mage cultures. So a change in venue gives him more room to advance and be recognized as valuable instead of ‘just another bookkeeper’.

After repeated attempts on his superior’s life, the decision was forced upon him to flee St Louis for Columbia. He left his temporary host, Ms. Solace, a note to cover their trail by stating that Issac died in care of a doctor after an ambush and that he was leaving the state and she was advised to do so as well. And so Zorander, Issac, Dr George Hendricks and his new "family’ (Zachary, Cali, David and Susan) made a somber trip west to Columbia to stick under the radar to rebuild homes and not get killed.

Little did they know of the coming shit to hit the fan…
