Unknown Armies: Berkeley
Back to Features
Reveal describes many mysterious rites that, if performed correctly and with intense desire, yield no-kidding magickal effects.
If you take an identity with this feature, some- thing about it relates to performing magick rituals — Thelemic Initiate, Hoodoo Woman, Defrocked Priest, Eliptonic Devotee, Aleister Crowley Reincarnated. You can roll the identity to activate minor rituals. More than that, you can roll the identity to perform significant rituals too, as long as you’ve got the magickal charge or charges needed for that ritual. (Charges are like invisible, immaterial magick batteries. Adepts can make them out of nothing more than bad intentions and stubbornness. Other people have to get them other ways.)
This feature shouldn’t be confused with the Use Gutter Magick feature, although it’s often paired up with it. Casts Rituals is for Thamaturgy and prepared magick based on years of research and study. Use Gutter Magick is improvisational rituals made up on the spot.
Avatar and adept identities come with this feature baked in.
