Powers and more

Pattern - Available for 50 pts, or 35 pts. 35 pts gets you: Basic Imprint, Move to Shadows, able to go around natural blocks in Shadow, Summon sign of the Pattern. 15 point Pattern allows you to follow and more importantly find Shadow roads or Shadow paths. You cannot blaze your own trail, but must follow the roads or paths. You can follow someone through Shadow if they have Pattern as follows:

35 point Pattern. You can follow them.
50 point Pattern. You can follow them if they let you.

Trump - You DO own the book, right?

Power Words - 10 pts, per the book, works about everywhere, uses your END to power.

Sorcery - See the Magicks page. Also, RULES CHANGE EFFECTIVE 3/3/17
Pattern magic no longer exists as a power. It is now automatic. With the "correction" of the Pattern by the Council, Astrid, Bert and the Ghost of Fiona, all Amberites with 50 point Pattern (or better) will now be able to simply hang their spells either on an object (as before) or on the Pattern. Also, the Pattern will take the place of the 'Magic of Shadow' lynchpin, meaning that mages are no longer required to change lynchpins, or more importantly, no longer required to pay the extra points for this ability. Any character who had that had the points refunded.
