Kjekt sted å få skrevet ned det man har funnet ut så langt, så man ikke glemmer det, og muligens få utviklet flere ting etterhvert også, eller komme med forslag der ting mangler.

Så vidt jeg har fått med meg har vi funnet fram til omtrent dette:

Skadi's Style: Galdring, runes and Norse mysticism

Example equipment: Charcoal to write with on various surfaces, bowls or pools of water to look into (cauldrons?), ????
Attribute: (Intelligence or Resolve?)
Arcana: Space, Fate and (???)
Practices: Unveiling, (Shielding or Ruling?), (Fraying or Weaving?)
Unique Benefit: If the spell uses Runes to increase its duration, the spellcasting dice pool gets a +1 bonus, in addition to any other benefit received from using the Style (so the bonus can reach +3)
Description: (flesh out for yourselves)

Hermes' Style: Melodrama and Cosmic Con-Games

Example equipment: Theatrical costumes, stage makeup, marked cards, loaded dice, theatre props, table to do tricks on, contracts with fine print, counterfeit money, palmed coins
Attribute: (Wits, Manipulation or Presence?)

Unique Benefit: Gets Patterning as an additional affinity Practice
Description: Fake it 'till you make it…real

Nobel's Style: Applied Technobabble

Example equipment: PDA, equation-solving algorithms, calculators, pen and paper, black/whiteboard with graphs and schematics of the "magical" principles and effects involved, hand-held devices used to measure composition, dimensions, voltage, magnetic fields, and any other energies or fields that may be relevant.
Attribute: Intelligence
Arcana: Forces, Matter, Prime
Practices: Knowing, Ruling, Weaving
Unique Benefit: If the spell to be cast is a Mage Sight spell (or comparable Unveiling magics) and the character is spending the extra time to benefit fully from this magical style, rather than the usual options he can instead choose to use the "Science" skill when scrutinizing, instead of "Occult".
Description: If my calculations are correct…
