Hi all, my first post here.
I am hoping to get along this year for the first time. I love the Urizen brief, their style and approach to life. I want to play a Magi and get into the political game rather than the combat one. The ritual magic really appeals to me but Synod priest seems to open up the most political doors and opportunities for that kind of game. However, that requires a congregation which would severely limit my ability to be a ritualist.
My concept is philosopher/scholar trying to pierce the mysteries and believes that only those who understand such things should be eligible to lead. In the Political game wanting to get involved in as much as possible across the weekend.
I’m thinking at the moment it would be easier to start as a ritualist with conclave politics and use that as an in-road to the politics of the Synod without necessarily having to be able to vote to begin with?
Any advice or experience for a beginner would be great!
