I could make her a Dreamspeaker and not change anything just they would ostracize her making her, er, the same solitary build just now she can arguably have some friends in a path who would talk to her. The same difference really.

But the Technocracy is fun!  >:)

Only limitation I said was no technocrats.   


Oh!  I see your confusion. When I meant to say traditions and independents I wound up saying orphans.

out curiousity how can you have arcane 5 and legends at any level? One make people forget you and the other makes you unforgetable as a legendary figure?

  Well, Legend isn't about your legend, but about a legend your pressence evokes. 

  If the legend you evoke is compatible with the arcane, it gets even better, "I'm telling you, he was right there!  He looked just like elvis!  I turned my back and he was gone!"

Yay, tropes!

  Also, after reading some of the Euthanatos tradition book, I'm just sitting here, having some mead and feeling really introspective right now. Those books always make me think, give me a new perspective on things.
  Just sitting her going 'Damn....' *sips mead*

Its simple she always must use those two items in magic this is regardless of her Arete say she made illuminated master sort of level and could write off all the tools she still must use Alcohol and Tobacco in her magic, she doesn't know why, likely the Spirits like she does as she sees it. But all that means is she has a Flask of Alcoholic Beverage and a Cigar with Lighter handy to do magic with when she's far more powerful. It can be a hassle to if neither is available which is why its a flaw. And those fit her being an earthy sort of mage.

I can change some in her backgrounds that's why I posted it but her Legend is the mighty Voodoo Queen of New Orleans a legend but not like Elvis, but if she comes across anyone into the occult it will likely apply.

But thinking I should add some past lives for the spirit of the Voodoo Queen inside her past lives - tweaking will commence shortly.

Phoebe is also a life mage as her affinity sphere so there is a little over lap.

Well she's a Spirit Mage, Life is her second sphere, most of the others didn't appeal to me.

Still tweaking. I'm not a min/maxer though just what fits.

Anyway her Blessing and Wonder need to be worked out.

I lowered Legend to 1 her famous person was dead for centuries so occult people and those with proper backgrounds might see her as a young voodoo queen but its not like she looks like a big movie star.

Phoebe is a weird mix of combat and healing. She has life 3, forces 1, mind 1 and prime 1. A former Marine with PTSD and a Paradgym of Self Perfection and Cosmic Harmony. She is very focused in the life sphere and she is working on mind to help get her over the PTSD and to eventually help her mother as well.

She is a Hot,Red Headed, Tattooed Girl in Biker Leathers that rides a Motorcycle and is taking care of mother that has been clean and sober from drugs for less than a year.

No worries Ruby. I was not even thinking of Min/Max just looking at Acrane and Legend together as an odd combo. I can see the uses for Legend, it gives you free quintessence. My first draft of my characters are always a little over the top and I have to tweek them like a million times until they are just right.

Panada. I would not worry too much about a little overlap with life. Entropy and Matter is a scary combo as well even with life 1  or 2 and entropy 3 you can do mean thing to living beings

  Much fun then. 

  The way you describe Crucial Compent it works fine, Ruby. 

  I was being told it just meant those were foci you couldn't overcome, but could always use other foci, which would be a rather pointless flaw. 

  Since it works that way, *stamps aproved*

Oh I need three things:

1. Blessing Benefit

2. Wonder
This one I'm thinking a mighty necklace owned by Marie Laveau that opens the gate through the guardian Loa of the Crossroads letting a named spirit come into her, when covered with a bit of her blood the price and sacrifice and some quintessence given to the spirit.

When you say a named spirit, you mean a specific spirti starong enoguh to merit a name?  Or she chooses the spirit when she makes the summons by calling it's name?

I'm thinking any of the Loa, the major spirits, but they might send a subordinate to possess her if it chooses to. The down side is its possession and willing once its in her the spirit will leave when it wishes but would general not be a dick. But if he or she wants to party she can't stop it, a reward for it help so to speak, as one example.

All right, let me look that over for the Wonder. 

What are you wanting out of the Blessing? 

*  *  *

A lot of people are wanting mertis and flaws from older editons: 
A.  I'll need to aprove them, to make sure they work both with the story and with the current editon. 
B.  I need those of you who have acess to that information to help those who don't know what to ask for, please.  :)

Looking the wonder over with Trigvi's help.  This seems to fit the bill within the level invested: 

The necklace of the Voodoo Queen level 2 Wonder (Trinket)

This Necklace is the physical representation of the pact she made with the Loas. She promised to honor the Loas with ritual and sacrifice and then in turn they agreed to hear her call as long as they were able to ride her for a time to experience human existence.

Spirit Pact
The person has to call to the Loas via spirit 2 and they will come assuming they feel they have been honored and respected by the person wearing the necklace.  Only one success is required for successful summoning, and no further assurance of cooperation is required.  Sometimes the summoned Lao will invest the power of a jaggling spirit level manifestation and Ride her, replacing her own power with it's pursuance.  Other times it will not suppress her ability, but grant her the use of a relevant skill at five dots.

That frees one point to spend, ummm, what about a minor Wonder if you put in the magic coin purse say ten coins it gets doubled, any coins, for a Quintessence as long as they are legal tender in the USA as can be used at face value as money.

I saw so many players respond and assumed the game was full for some reason, until Muse PMed me.

I've got a Society of Ether concept too, a 40s/50s style heroic adventurer-scientist, an engineering student who Awakened by reading old pulp magazines that had a lot of "True Science Facts!" articles in them.   Using that same reference, she found one of Doc Eon's companions frozen in time in a strange device (along with an exploding bomb), defused the bomb and thawed him out as her first Procedure, and he became her mentor.
 
Magic-wise, definitely Forces 3 with a tendency towards flying, perhaps a jetpack or even a Flash Gordon serial-style spaceship, if that'd fit.

A sub-theme to her is "Uncovering the hidden past of adventure!" ala Atomic Robo or Planetary.  She might have discovered an Etherite spaceship and has been trying to restore it, which is rather slow going and thus a long-term goal.
