  • Dropped the Gel Pack from his helmet, spent the Nuyen on Reagents
    Changed Increase Reflexes Spell to Alchemical


Craig Steward studied at the Booth University College in Winnipeg, MB,
I am from Winnipeg, and it is one of the magic colleges for Hermetic Mages, so I had to use it.
and finished his Bachelors of Magical Studies. Not long after he finished his studies, Craig was gifted by his parents with his Trust Fund. With his newfound wealth, Craig had enough of the Winnipeg winters and moved to Seattle.

Arriving in Seattle, Craig's Trust Fund manager, Vincent Falker, set him up in a basement apartment in Renton. This apartment did not have a lot of head clearance, having barely 7 foot ceilings, but that was more than enough for the Dwarf to feel comfortable. This was due to its vicinity to the Cougar Mountains, and some of the suite was carved out of the bedrock that was starting to climb up for the mountains. With a bit of work, and the help of an Earth Elemental or three, Craig was able to set himself up a small mushroom garden, a still and vat for his brewing, as well as a space to set up the magical circles and alchemical workbench for his Magical Lodge without compromising the integrity if the low rise building he lived... under. He was also able to get a job working for, and then befriending a fellow Dwarf, George Georgeson, who ran the local Talismonger shop. George was able to get Craig work raising Wards to protect people's shops as well as other magical services such as Healing and Truth Detection at meetings.

This was fine for a while, but in order to get the nuyen to upgrade his Magical Lodge and get another couple spells, Craig made a decision that would change his life... he went to the Vory for a short term loan, for a surprisingly low interest rate. Unfortunately, not long after he took possession of the Nuyen, George and his shop had a decrease in business and Craig wasn't able to pay it off in the agreed upon
There is NO POSSIBLE WAY that the Vory would EVER manipulate the situation to get a Mage to owe them... and then let that Mage to borrow more and more until they are in debt enough that the only real way to get out of debt is to some... Shady type of work... no way at all!!! LOL
, but the Vory seemed very understanding and were willing to give him more time to pay them... accumulating more interest, but at a higher rate now. After half a year, George's business was able to recover, and Craig was able to work for him again, but he was not able to get enough income to pay off the Vory.

At this time, a very nondescript Dwarf who introduced himself as
aka Mulpa
, his new contact with the Vory. After a brief discussion with his new "friend", Mulpa informed that he would be making Preparations and doing other magical services for them in order to help pay down his debt until he was able to pay it off. Somehow he never got enough pay from this work to make much headway against his debt, but after being also introduced to a couple not so friendly looking Fomorians, Craig realized that it was in his best interest to cooperate. They even arranged to get him a couple fake SINs to use in his work for them in order to keep his own clean... though this added to his debt to them too.

A couple weeks ago, Craig was introduced to Tamara Simpson, who he was told was a "Fixer" and would arrange for more work for him of the not so legal variety. The lady told him she would be in touch when she had work for him, and that he could contact her if he needed any introductions to people.

Now Craig, now with the moniker of Sandman for his use of Stun spells, was awaiting a call that he would most likely regret answering. He knew, however, that answering the call was his best way of getting out of debt with the Vory.

Here’s a quick rundown of the many uses of reagents.
  • Alchemical Preparations: You can spend reagents to set the limit for Alchemy when making a preparation. Rather than the spell’s Force, the limit becomes the number of drams spent on the limit.
    Artificing: You need to spend reagents to create foci.
    Banishing: You can spend reagents to set the limit for Banishing. Rather than your Astral limit, the limit becomes the number of drams of reagents spent. You can spend reagents to change the limit for Banishing.
    Binding: You have to spend reagents in order to bind a spirit.
    Counterspelling: You can spend reagents to set the limit for Counterspelling. Rather than your Astral limit, the limit becomes the number of drams of reagents spent.
    Disjoining: You can spend reagents to set the limit for disjoining. Rather than your Astral limit, the limit becomes the number of drams of reagents spent.
    Ritual Spellcasting: As part of the offering step, you can spend reagents to offset Drain in Ritual Spellcasting (see Ritual Spellcasting, p. 295).
    Spellcasting: In a pinch, you can spend reagents to set the limit for Spellcasting. Rather than using the spell’s Force as the limit, use the number of drams of reagents spent.
    Summoning: You can spend reagents to set the limit for Summoning. Rather than the spirit’s Force, the limit becomes the number of drams of reagents spent.
    Temporary Magical Lodge: You can create a temporary magical lodge by spending a number of drams of reagents equal to Force of the lodge. The lodge takes one hour per point of Force to create and thereafter lasts until sunrise or sunset, whichever comes first.
