"What was your patron's name again?"

Permalink

"Lucasta! She is apparently newish and not known to mundanes and her portfolio is altruism and mortal agency."

Permalink

"Well, I am way too culturally Jewish to be a warlock, but those sound like neat things to be a god of!"

Permalink

"I think so too! She's where I got the lifeweaving tiara, it's a very good bribe."

Permalink

"--Ooh. Yes it is."

Permalink

"Do you get charge off the tiara as a bonus? It looks pretty arty."

Permalink

"Charge is actually based on the meaning of the art to the original creator, not how pretty something is, which is why the crayon drawings work, but yes, apparently whoever put it together - I'm not sure if it was Lucasta herself - was sufficiently invested."

Permalink

"Who wouldn't be invested in something like that."

Permalink

"If they're mass-produced? I have no reason to think they are but if it was a very convincing plastic toy from Target that happened to have been gloriously enchanted it would probably not count as art. ...I guess maybe glorious enchantments can count as art, I don't know if that's a valid medium for wulong purposes."

"Oh. I guess if the magic and the construction were totally separate that would make sense. It's not a plastic toy from Target, though, I think I'm getting some opulence-charge off of it."

Permalink

"It is very shmancy." Pat pat.

Permalink

"It has my totally irrelevant approval."

Permalink

"I also got a hydron and some much less pretty sunglass dealies but it's definitely the big ticket bribe."

Permalink

"What's a hydron?"

Permalink

"This thing!" She appears it. "You can make different potions all at once in it, or combine them."

Permalink

"Ooh, fun." 

Permalink

"Potions seem very cool." 

Permalink

"Yeah, I'm excited to learn 'em."

Permalink

"In addition to art, I also like scavenger hunts, so the idea of picking up weird idiosyncratic magic substances whenever it comes up and then having them be useful for potions later is very satisfying." 

Permalink

May giggles. "Probably at low levels it's more like grocery shopping - maybe literally - but I bet there's weird stuff - oh, there's a thing on my long term to-do list that involves melting a cosmic pearl to shift an affinity, for squeezing more stuff into one's power, that one didn't sound complicated, just involves the rare pearl -"

Permalink

"Ooooooh."

Permalink

"It would be nice to have an affinity that goes with potions."

Permalink

"Yup! You can only have a limited number of affinities at a time so it's probably ideal to finish up buying ranks in one before you switch it to another."

Permalink

"I will definitely make sure to buy all the fire elementalism I want before ditching it." 

Permalink

"Why fire? I'm planning on air but haven't committed so I'll hear arguments."
