Chantry and Node Casting Mechanics

All dedicated (single paradigm) chantries and constructs maintain their own specific Reality Zones. This means that anyone whose paradigm matches that of the chantry/construct in question casts all of their magick within that chantry/construct as if it were coincidental. On the flip side, anyone whose paradigm does not match that of the chantry/construct casts all of their magick there as if it were vulgar. Chantries with mixed beliefs/affiliation do not have this perk. Casting there follows the same rules as usual.

Casting near a Node reduces the difficulty of the effect. The specifics of this modifier will vary depending upon both the size of the Node and the distance to it. Rather than making a complicated chart, specific rulings are generally left to individual STs. However, for the sake of clarity, the base modifiers for the different ranks are as follows:

  • Rank 1: -1
  • Rank 2: -2
  • Ranks 3 and up: -3

This assumes that the character is standing directly beside the Node. Where the Node's rank really comes into play is when you're dealing with distance. Larger, more powerful Nodes can extend their casting modifier across a wider radius. The modifier will gradually decrease over distance until it is no longer in effect. See the Node entries for each chantry/construct for more information about how to calculate this modifier in each location.

Replenishing Quintessence

When meditating at a node to refresh Quintessence, use the following mechanics:

  • For each hour spent meditating at a node, roll Perception+Meditation, difficulty 7. Each success allows the character to replenish 1 point of Quintessence, up to the level of their Avatar rating. (Prime magick can surpass this limit.)
