Mage: The Hildebrand Recording
The way which Arcana will be raised will include spending experience and a story made by the player to illustrate his characters gaining of competence over the next level of Arcane power. This story will be between 1 and 3 scenes, narrative or interactive, and may involve the other characters or NPCs.
The best way to illustrate the growth of a characters power is to center the story around one of the 13 practices.
Access to Tome of the Mysteries for arcana-growth story ideas is appropriate. Serious thought can be put into this story and so a well planed story is requested. (1 Bonus XP)
Thirteen magical Practices were codified by Atlantean mages, the naming of which has remained constant as a means of exchange of information. These Practices are spread out roughly over the levels of Arcana mastery, and serve as a basis for magical advancement.
