Monitor Sympathy


Seers of the Throne p.195


Every interaction of a person creates a slight ripple in Space, the threads of sympathetic connections vibrating and strengthening when association reinforces them. This spell allows the mage to watch the connection of a target for those moments it becomes active.

Arcanum: Space ●●
Practice: Knowing
Action: Instant
Duration: Prolonged (one scene)
Aspect: Covert
Cost: None

The spell watches a sympathetic connection (usually targeted after the use of Interconnections or similar spells) for “activity”, defined as the target being in the presence of, thinking about or otherwise acting on the relationship defined by the connection.

The strength of the sympathetic connection being targeted determines the number of successes required:
Roll Result 1 sux 2 sux 3 sux 4 sux 5 sux
Connection Described Encountered Acquainted Known Intimate

On successful casting, the mage becomes aware when any activity occurs but does not know exactly what is occurring — for that; they must cast Scrying.

This spell is detectable by anyone using Spatial Awareness on the target.


Seers of the Throne Rote: Watching the Threads
Dice Pool: Wits + Investigation + Space

The Ministry of Panopticon is not content to merely watch their targets; they watch those target’s associations as well. The use of this rote allows a Seer to know when a target is meeting with a significant person, so that follow-up magic may be brought to bear.
