Vancian Magic

The Vancian Magic came from games like D&D and others. A Vancian Merlin needs to study and prepare some magics before cast them. Normally, they can prepare a magic after a good night of sleep, or at least 8 hours of undisturbed rest.

The magical casting is done with an Discernment+Academics roll (modified by Magical Cunning) against a difficult based on the magic power (GM Discretion). Any Success roll shows the Merlin cast that magic and was successful on it. However, in case of a Tie, he can lose the ability to cast that magic again until next 8 hours rest, where he can prepare again that magic. A Failure shows that the character lost all the magics he prepared that day, being Magically Exhausted (an Aspect that blocks his access to magic).

All Vancian Merlins knows some magics, that they transcribe to any kind of storage: books are the rage, but a good file into a cloud system is good enough. Every time they prepare a magic, he read it and do a simple Discernment+Academics roll (modified by Magical Cunning), _Fair (+2) difficult. The Aspect is placed as an Aspect, but without any Free Invokes. The Vancian Merlins can have at most a number of prepared magics equals the number of Vancian Magic Stunts plus Magical Cunning Levels. Once prepared, this magic can be discharged at any time, but only can be exchanged after the 8 hours rest.

You can prepare a magic that you don’t know, if you had seen it. However, this is very dangerous: on a Failure, consider that the Merlin suffered a mental attack with the stress being the level of Failure. He can resist it via Willpower normally. If your character do it, the magic is considered learned and can be prepared normally.

To Learn a new Magic, the Vancian Merlin do a check like he was preparing a magic: he need access to other Vancian Merlin’s storage and need to take a time, uninterrupted, equal the Difficult of the magic (in hours) to read and transcribe the magic to his own storage. After, he rolls Discernment+Academics against the magic Difficult. A Success or Tie means he had correctly transcribed the magic to his storage and learned it. A Failure indicates he wasn’t able to transcribe the magic and so he hadn’t learned it. He can try again after a 8 hours rest period without difficult changes, or he can retry before, with a cummulative +1 on difficult for each time.

  • O - A Vancian Magic uses his Overcome for, beside other actions, does counterspell (nullifying magical powers) without need to prepare magics. Also, he can use Overcome to Read/Identifty Magic;
  • C - Create Advantages is the main stape on Vancian Magic: Illusions, Arcane Pockets and all kind of magical tricks are put under this action. Also, this action can be used to Learn a new Magic;
  • A - Vancian Magic can be used to Attack: things like Fireball, Magic Missiles or Lighting Bolt are staple on this.
  • D - Vancian Magic can be used on Defense, either as a Block or as a Defense

  • Improvisation Magic: this Vancian Merlin can prepare magics on-the-fly, without waiting the 8 hours rest. As long he has any free slot (he hasn’t gone into the Vancian Magic + Magical Cunning limit of prepared magic), he can do a preparation check like normal, but with a +1 difficult by the doing this on stress. The magic is considered prepared for all rules. This can be done to exchange magics prepared previously, but the Merlin needs to do this on two separated actions (so in two rounds): one by discharging a magic and then preparing the new one;

Sukhoi (Real Name: Tomász ‘Tom’ Yurivich Sokolov)

Yuri Gregorivitch Volochenko was an USSR agent at US during the Cold War. When the Iron Curtain fell, Yuri chosed to forfeit his links with KGB and defect for US. He then married with Saryia Dominyaskya Sokolov, a part of the Nomenklatura (USSR government) that stayed as a diplomat and was an acquaintance of him, albeit she never knew about his actions as a spy.

After some time, however, he forfeited all the values from communist USSR and this provoked a rift between Yuri and Saryia, so long that, just a week after Tomász was born, his father left the family for an adventure, a “typical capitalism pig action” (Saryia’s quote)

Saryia had some problem to stabilish herself as a single mom in US, but the russian translations and UN work had provided her enough money to raise Tomász. She chose to go for another city, a medium one where a college could have an use on a Russian translator and teacher. And there had gone Saryia and Tomász.

Just a little after they came to the new home, she discovered Yuri died, penniless at Vegas.

It was a little dificult to raise Tomász into a small country where a weird russian kid was saw as part of the Red Danger. He then mingled himself into a small clique of leftist college guys. As he read russian, he could lecture almost everyone on all things Lenin and he also read Marx and Engels from the source.

But he didn’t saw Communism as something to be imposed: he had the belief that the Capitalism would ruin itself by leaving the rotten fruits into the basket. So, he continued his studies in the college.

Until The Event.

In the craziness just after The Event, he heard people into a room screaming: it was a Chemistry lab where things were going in flames.

He thought on how to get away the flames, and had the idea to remove oxygen from nearby the flames, making her going exthingish.

And he did it.

He passed the next fays training on how to use those powers, and it was when Jake came. He was know using the name Prop as a cape and he asked for help to bring some supplies for the local hospital.

He accepted, and as he discovered he could fly by pushing winds like a helicopter, he chosed the name Sukhoi.

He also discovered that he had some kind of supersenses: He could see and hear on long distances.

Sukhoi is a support for the others, looking high and coordinating the team Actions. He still works with the CAI, but he’s a leftist after all: he believe in the importance of a State that works For The People, and that People should be the Main Source of Power. He sometimes have heated debates on politics with the others, but in action, he’s unquestionable a cape, a hero, a CAI Member.
