DeRiche College Choices
Join one of the following orders to gain their benefits
Core Word – Vigourousness
Support Words: Strength, Athleticism, Sturdy and Durable
Name: Shield of Stone
Description: The Mafic Chapter are known as the Shield of De Riche and for good reason. The first spell taught is to imbue their shields with the unyielding strength of stone. This blessing allows the shield to shrug off the first attempt to break it.
Effect: The shield will not be destroyed by the first Shield Break result obtained. Each shield may only be effected by this blessing once per day, however; repeated castings in a short period will cause it to crumble into dust. This lasts all day.
Name: Strength of the Earth
Description: The wielders of the power of the Earth are known for their immense physical prowess. When imbued with the power of this invocation, the muscles of the Vorokian become as solid as stone.
Effect: The Sourceror ignores the first three Knockback or Knockdown effects directed against them within the next scene.
Core Words – Source
Support Words – Lore, Punishment, Secrets and Observation
Name: Sense of Stone
Description: By attuning themself to stone, rock or ore the Vorokian gains a full understanding of what that material is – what its name is, where it is from, whether it is natural and mundane or whether it has magical properties. If those properties are Sourcerous in nature they will learn the relative power and utility of the material as well.
Effect: The Sourceror gains the requested information.
Name: The Stonesong
Description: Few ever hear the Stonesong, but for those of the Breccia it becomes a second language they know as well as their native tongue. When they speak it, it sounds as though rock grinds against rock and stones tumble in an endless landslide. But for each question asked, the earth has an answer.
Effect: The Vorokian may address up to three questions to any rock, metal or earth. They will receive a response. The inanimate world rarely lies, but it does not always have a useful answer either.
Core Word – Crafting
Support Words: Artifice, Rules, Orders and Construction
Name: Prototypical Understanding
Description: It is a foolhardy student who does not first learn to understand the intricacies of the artifice which they recover. This simple incantation allows a general idea of the Words or purpose bound into artifice which they might handle, so long as it is Sourcerous in nature.
Effect: The Vorokian gains insight into any Source magic imbued into an item.
Name: Tools of the Earth
Description: So long as the Vorokian has access to the earth, rock, or ore, they will never be without any mundane tools they might need to undertake their craft. Imbuing it with the power of the Vorokian worlds, they are able to shape it into tools which will serve their purpose.
Effect: The Vorokian creates any mundane tools for a scene. We recommend ensuring that you have physreps available if you want to be sure of having them on hand.
Core Word – Summoning
Support Words: Unity, Command, Forethought and Politics
Name: Badge of Office
Description: Those who would wield power must first speak of their right to hold it. Through means of this incantation, a Vorokian may imbue their symbol with a magical expression of their casting lineage; the oaths they have sworn to their teachers, instructors, and the sponsors of their Sourcerous arts which is visible to all those who have the sight to see it.
Effect: The Vorokian imbues a badge with their power. This may influence the reaction of some NPCs to their presence.
Name: Audience with the House
Description: Calling upon the names of those to whom the Vorokian is pacted, they might request an answer to a single question from their House or from a particular Vorokian that they have met previously. The Vorokian in question is under no obligation to answer, but the House is generally positively predisposed towards those whom are pacted to it and whilst they are not omniscient their knowledge runs deep.
Effect: The Vorokian may ask one question and the ref will supply an answer.
