Didn’t witchcraft die out in the Dark Ages? As such, I feel like it really ought to hold up to player scrutiny.

Given the fractious and chaotic nature of most Etherites, it’s not surprising that their Tradition follows suit. Etheric inventions are, of course, highly personalized. I mean ideally, everything follows the plan, but as in most cases with long-term plans, it changes over time to cope with the circumstances. The “Weird Science” of the Sons of Ether, which may feature such outdated concepts as Vacuum Ssons, become more unreliable when people see them and say “lol.

And it holds a host of seemingly-contradictory physical properties. Despite their current high level of antipathy toward the Technocracy, the early Sons of Ether then known as the Electrodyne Engineers were in fact one of the Technocratic Conventions. It is also worth noting that the Sons of Ether soons the other traditions “magic” to be Science, just with superstitious trappings.

Even if the character’s capabilities are meager at the moment, they still have a Focus Paradigm, Practice, and Instrumentswhich dictate what they believe the universe to be, and how that lets them do Magick.

Sons of Ether – Project Fiction

The violent signals of Patterns cannot be drawn from Vibration 4 but the breakdown effect can be controlled with an overall “volume control” on the harmonics; a Vibratory potentiometer, if you will. However, some think that Mind effects are actually effects of resonance patterns of Gestalt and Biomechanics.


Image i – Alchemical emblem depicting the omnipresence of the philosophical matter. Thus, both approach the same problem with the same tools but from different directions. The Sons of Ether felt this the hardest.

I suppose I should’ve been a bit more broad and said that literally everything that relies on any sort of physics or chemistry is magic. The ‘antiquated trappings’ are, to them, either the literal truth of the universe or the only useful metaphor for that truth available to humans.

Another’s avatar may instead be grounded in reality, requiring that they build their way out of a prison cell, or an abandoned mine.

Create account or Sign in. With sufficient insight into the interaction of vibratory energies on the Model, the Model can be subtly altered without outward signs of changes.

The Sons of Ether are a strange group to exist in the Council of Nine, but their open approach to the possibility asvension anything makes them a staunch ally against the Technocracy.

Progress must be controlled, measured, to ensure that everything will be alright. Presumably based on the works of early philosophers and translated through several secret forms, the document eventually etger in 12th-century Spain, where a pair of enterprising mystics one a Hermetic craftsman, the other a Ethef took its teachings to heart.

I’d like to illustrate this technomancer point with an example: For the better part of a century, the Engineers advocated the wonders of electricity, the value of perception in experimentation and the power of the questing spirit.


The Technocracy saw the Sons of Ether as a liability etheer their structured version of reality. Many scientific prodigies burn out at a young age, but not so the Sons of Ether.

From there, the individual can posit theories about the functioning of reality as he sees it, and those theories lend themselves to creations.

But isn’t everything reliant on magic, physics and chemistry included? Someone tells you that you are a mage that in theory can do anything, but you still have x years as a human telling you what you think, who you are. They don’t want jage change reality, but to enforce it.


As science travels into infinitely more detailed realms, the Sons of Ether find more cracks to exploit. Find out what you can do.

Sons of Ether Paradigm Paradigm – Anders Mage Page

Many Etherites are either unaware of or unwilling to learn the rotes of others since they are bent on viewing the world through the lens of their own personal theories. Quantum theory accepts a subjective view of the universe. As such I don’t had the familiarity with the setting that many others do, and I’m puzzled by one aspect of it.

I’m thinking you could draw inspiration for a technomage’s seeking from the movies A Beautiful Mindthat short dream sequence in Lorenzo’s Oilor that or even that strange dream sequence in Gravity or some of that weirdness in The Secret life of Walter Mitty Crowdfunding websites like Kickstarter are allowing them to release experiments to the general public, and winning acceptance from the consensus thanks to innovations done by Sleepers themselves.

There was a time when people used to think that wearing Ether Goggles would be too obvious, but in the age of Google Glass, that might just change. Thus, some Etherites use large, bulky creations made from s or earlier technology, while others invent new spins on modern technology and make wonderfully compact and convenient devices. One Etherite’s avatar might throw them into elaborate thought experiments, such as a train travelling at the speed of light, where they must act in order to avoid a collision.

This strongly indicates a vibratory plane that would sustain ideas.
