Quote
Find the Hidden Hoard (Matter •)
The mage can find secret compartments within inanimate matter, discovering hidden doors, safes and vaults.

Practice: Unveiling
Action: Instant
Duration: Concentration
Aspect: Covert
Cost: None

Extremely well-designed hidden compartments or rooms might levy a – 1 or –2 dice penalty, but usually only the most refined or precise of such misdirectional architecture imposes this penalty.

Mysterium Rote: Mapping the Tomb
Dice Pool: Wits + Crafts + Matter

With this rote, a Mysterium willworker is capable of detecting the presence of unseen spaces within seemingly solid structures.

It pays to skim through your spells once in a while Aman!  :D

For Beats, I need to know the approximate time-frame he wants to look back on. Note the spell only shows turns worth of time per casting, so even though I'm using it more broadly that that, I'll need folks to be more specific.

Emend's emotional urging took the edge off, but there still remained a mental wall that prevented him from going further. This prompted him to take a look at things with prime and sure enough - he realized the way was blocked by an unusual ward/ban against humans (or at least humans not meeting certain criteria of the ban).

For reference, Emend had already had that active before entering the club:

"If they attack us we'll fight back, but we have no reason to proactively try to murder humans," Emend responds. "Unlike the others we've faced, these ones are simply being used as food so far as we're aware. Save your judgement for when we know more about them, Saint."

"While Beats takes a general look around, I'll look specifically for our friend from the morgue," he continues, attempting to scry the vampire he placed the tracking spell on. He'll first active Supernal Vision, along with Aura Perception, to easily tell the vampires apart.

Though I imagine trying to keep track of all the different mage visions is a bitch lol.

Also, I'm dispelling the spell rather than trying use Controlled Dispellation on it (to make us invisible to it) since I'm under the impression that altering the spell would still alert the spellcaster that it's been altered. Is this the case?

And speaking of those spells, it says I can use Controlled Dispellation with Supernal Dispellation. Do I need rotes in both of those for it to be treated like a rote, or would Emend be able to perform Controlled Dispellation with his Supernal Dispellation rote?

Because if he can I would definitely have him do that over dispelling it entirely.

No, they will not know that the spell has been altered, unless they scrutinize it with prime.

Quote
Example: Arctos is thrown into a dungeon that’s protected by an area-affecting spell designed to befuddle anyone within its confines. He casts Controlled Dispellation to prevent the spell from affecting his own Pattern. Since he has not dispelled the magic — only its effect upon himself — his captor does not necessarily know that he is not affected. Arctos can pretend to be befuddled if it suits his escape plan.


Quote

In this case, it means you can use Controlled Dispellation with the prerequisites of Supernal Dispellation (rather than the prerequisites of Dispel Magic).

Maybe, but it wouldn't do much in this case, as the Belial's Brood is too small to infiltrate (in other words, they know each other and kill everyone else).

I mean, we're going against 4 vampires + a bunch of humans. Even in the best case scenarios I don't see how we leave this in one piece lol.

Hilariously, the best plan probably would be to simply set the whole thing on fire. Fighting them in person is just reckless, and our entire plan basically hinges on Beats making some sun.

8 Vampires, they made new ones remember?

And Ductus is a roman name, decent chance he's a Ventrue and he might be posing or he might be the two thousand year old servant of a demon imperator, don't know, probably not, really hope not. I mean, i'm going into this thinking we're supposed to lose because there's absolutely no way we take this if it's a fair fight. Normal way mages operate is from a distance, the way we would have realistically done this would have been Robor sends a bunch of spirits to attack the place and leave hints as to where we're actually located, draw the vampires out of their base, trim them down a bit.

Then one of us (probably me) goes in fully buffed up with spells - or better yet, flesh puppet someone who we fully buff up with spells - while the others scry from a distance using the existing connection to follow killer into the underground and provide support/minions as canon fodder.

But we're too nice to do things this way (could have repercussions on the mortal world, and especially on the flesh puppet) and I would guess that playstyle might be a bit boring (hence mages always getting in melee range of vampires and werewolves in these games).
