Mage: the Transcendence
Central to Transcendence is the idea of Paths. Paths represent the way the mage becomes a more powerful mage.
Categories of Paths
There are three groups of Paths:
Paths of Enlightenment – these paths seek to shape the mage’s spiritual growth. The ultimate goal of a path of enlightenment is Transcendence, the ability to Transcend the mortal coils and become something altogether different.
Paths of Power – these paths forsake the goal of Transcendence. Instead these paths work towards the accumulation of influence and power, using it to fuel their magic power.
Paths of Madness – these are the paths that a mage who goes insane and/or falls unto darker urges follows. They embrace annihilation and/or chaos.
