The rest of the multiverse is also altered. The Pattern
is semi sentient in that if an initiate works to destroy it the image of
the Pattern shall be removed from the initiate’s mind, effectively leaving
her stranded in shadow without an imprint. The Logrus remains unchanged
as does shapeshift. Sorcery has been altered to create a more versatile,
_instant_ and cr@p free system. Ygg is still the marker between Order and
Chaos but there are two new powers that it also divides- Creation and Renewal. The Cup represents Creation as it has existed since the beginning of time, isolated from the seeds of chaos germinating elsewhere. Corwin’s Pattern was created to bolster the Power of Creation as it’s spirit was collapsing due to a flagging resource base. So Corwin was compelled to create a new power in the multiverse making a sum total of 6 - Chaos, Order, Creation, Renewal, Entropy and Limitation. Which brings me to my
final two points. The Abyss is Entropy which was eating away at creation until Renewal stepped in and Ygg is Limitation by which the multiverse’ stopgap from Armageddon.
Phasing --> 10
Fey Shapeshifting --> 20
Illusion --> 10 (+10 of sorcery)
Phasing --> The ability to temporarily disappear for a willed period of time. It is very draining on the body’s resources. From an outsider’s point of view, the effect is not dissimilar to that of the Predator’s cloaking device.
Fey Shapeshifting --> The changing of one’s form. It takes a matter of seconds to switch from one form to another. No changes in size, weight, extra limbs, healing, etc. This is shapeshift without primal, demon etc. If arms become wings, you can fly though.
Illusion --> Just that, an extension of the existing sorcery rules. Take a short period of time to craft but are made different because if an object from the thing being made is present in the illusion, it becomes solid and permanent. Illusions cannot speak or make sounds.
All the above powers are undetectable by use of Pattern
/ Logrus / Corwin’s / Ogier’s.
Imprint --> Walking the Pattern itself, recalling the scents important to your life and discussing your case for walking with the Tree of Life at the base of the Pattern. The Pattern talks to the initiate through the tree and so should be treated with the utmost respect. The Pattern is sentient and will repulse any attempt at trickery or nonsense that is related to harming or attempting the Pattern without permission. The tree also provides the would-be walker with an equivalent of a trump scry upon reaching the centre of the Pattern.
Pattern Boost --> Same as Ogier’s but for Pattern instead.
Shadow Travel --> Travelling through shadow leaving nary a path behind you. Can lead others through shadow but must be close by. Easier the closer to Corwin’s Pattern you are. This pattern is the best method of shifting _anywhere_. Pattern dribbles out in this side of Ygg, Logrus’ tendrils freeze up and The Cup of life has difficulty crossing the border between the two multiverses (Amber-Logrus pair to Scent-Cup pair).
Defence --> Corwin’s Pattern defence is slightly weaker than Pattern defence but conveys a limited physical protection as well.
Discover Shadow laws --> Just that- take a few moments of intense concentration and voile! you know anything there is to know about this particular Shadow’s makeup. This includes natural (or unnatural) barriers (comm etc.), how much and of what type of technology, sorcery, intrinsic systems, Order, Chaos, speed of timeflow related to Corwin std etc.
Revert Shadow --> used in combination with the above can be used to return a shadow (or whatever) to its original state. e.g. an enchanted staff becomes a travelling stick, Borel’s Way is returned to chaos etc.
Rush job --> While shadow travelling this is sort of a hellride, it is faster than a normal ‘shift and works in fits and starts of blurring fast travel where the entire countryside is reduced to pastels and mixed to produce an entirely different thing than started from.
Travel Blur --> As above but stays blurred for the entire trip. As fast if not faster than a hellride. Very draining on the characters’ endurance.
Create Personal shadow/reality --> Further refinement of Revert Shadow ability. You can create a shadow to your own precise design specifications and every tiny detail of the shadow can be specifically laid out. Adding Order will bring it closer to Amber etc.
Ability to navigate the Abyss --> This allows the initiate
to travel within the great Abyss of the Amber-Chaos divide. The Abyss can
be used to travel through ‘shadows’ of multiverses - each one different.
These universes are in a 1D continuum with no beginning and no end. These
points can only be paid upon entering the Abyss. These powers also negate
the Abyss’ entropic powers.
Initiation --> the act of drinking of the cup of life
in the sacred Stedding of the Ogier homeworld. The person is then imbued
with raw power which flows through them, ravaging and tearing at the old
personality. They are driven almost insane by the forces ripping through
them. One must have exceptional endurance to even contemplate (without
losing one’s identity that is) taking the cup. Thus the endurance requirement
of 5. Once one has assimilated oneself into the power, it leaves and repairs
the damage done
to your psyche leaving only the need to return to the grove and drink of the cup regularly (once per month).
Shadowrun --> Unlike normal shadow walking, this ability can only be used while on foot. However when the proper mode of transportation is utilised, it is about half the speed of a Hellride and double to triple that of normal Shadow walking.
Shadow Trump --> This ability is utilised much the same as that of normal Trump. There are a couple of exceptions. Namely there are no cards, it is all mental. The second is that it only works in Shadow, places of reality are not affected. Third, you cannot step through the Trump contact.
Defence --> Like the Pattern, the energies of the Cup are brought to mind and a glow comes to the features of the attuned person. This ‘visualisation’ helps to ward off Logrus, Corwin’s Pattern and Pattern energies as well as those powers based items.
Patternull --> If the attuned person concentrates hard they can cause the power of the Cup to manifest externally in the form of a shimmering globe around them. This globe is impervious to the powers of Pattern.
Logrus boost --> A minor extension on the normal Logrus powers. One can (shadow) travel faster, summon Chaos closer to Amber as well as stronger tendrils.
All the above (Ogier) powers have a number in brackets
next to them. This denotes the level of proficiency required of the adept
to utilise said power. Thus if you want a level 6 power, you need to purchase
all the other powers below that level of proficiency, Shadowrun etc.
