Just some nitpicking since your spell checker did something. It's Dark Thaumaturgy (It's a real word, Greek for 'miracle work') and Fires of the Inferno rather than Lure of Flames.

The fire wielded by infernal mages need to be green in order to stick with PnP or be blue and sparkly like the fire Andrei and the Sabbat Tremere use if you want to be consistent with the vanilla game.

Just to be Clear:
1. Thaumaturgy and Thaumaturge are the same word, different spelling. Though I have to agree that Thaumaturgy is how it is spelled in WOD, So ill go with your word on this one
2. It's Lure of Flames and Fire Magic conjured by "Prime and Force" Spheres.
3. Also at the moment the idea of infernal Mages is not part of the metaplot. there is still alot going on . . .

1. No they are not. Two entirely different words. A Thaumaturge is one who practices/uses Thaumaturgy.

2. You stated the mage NPCs will have access to Dark Thaumaturgy, meaning Kindred not Kine mages. You need to be clearer if you mean mages and infernalists seperately. I merely pointed out that Dark Thaumaturgy wielding infernalists would use Fires of the Inferno rather then Lure of Flames.

Also Lure of Flames is Tremere a Thaumaturgical Path, no mortal mage can wield it. Mages wield whatwver Spheres they have access to, not Thaumaturgy (Vampire Blood Magic).

3. Dark Thaumaturgy implies infernalists. You needed to word things better, as it does imply infernalists.

Just throwing some corrections out there. No need to overreact.

Yes, but I said Infernalist Mages, not Infernalist alone ! the bishop in the game, who made the plague with Dark Thaumaturgy, was also infernalist. but here you are talking about Infernal Mages, those two are Totally different entities.

I will correct the Thaumaturgy one. they need not to be tremere to use thaumaturge, many sabbat practice dark thaumaturge, specially after the slaughter of the tremere antitribu.

1. You should have said [Nephandi] then. Much clearer that way. You slipped up with the terms. You mentioned MAGES USING DARK THAUMATURGY and LURE OF FLAMES(they can't, only vampires can). My point stands. Yours was moot.

No proof Vick did so. How the plague was made is unknown. As is his true clan.

2. You missed the point, again. Dark Thaumaturgy is NOT the same as Thaumaturgy. Read the PnP supplements properly. What I said is correct, what you've said is wrong. You said incorrect things, Mages cannot wield Dark Thaumaturgy or Thaumaturgy. Mages cannot wield vampire blood magic. They wield True Magic (Vampires don't have Avatars remember, they use the power of Caine's blood to approximate).

The Sabbat example is irrelevant. Firstly I said mortals cannot wield Tremere blood magic, not that it is exclusive to the Tremere. Your point is moot on that alone. Dark Thaumaturgy does not equal Thaumaturgy. That and as I said, MORTALS CANNOT USE VAMPIRE BLOOD MAGIC. You said they can, which is wrong.

You muddled things up by mentioning Dark Thaumaturgy/Lure of Flames being used by Mages, which is impossible/incorrect by PnP. You made some pretty big mistakes here. Just pointing things out, don't freak out.

*On another note I found some interesting 2nd ed Mage stuff about the Nagaraja that might be useful if we do make another Nagaraja NPC in Chinatown.

1. He Used Dark Thaumaturge - Path of Pestilence, and His clan is Brujah Antitribu.

2. Again, I did not mention it at all. You keep assuming stuff. I dont remember saying anywhere that a Mortal uses Dark Thaumaturge at all, In the videos I said Mages use Fire spells. and Mages use Dark Thaumaturgy.

Maybe its my fault, and the name "Mage NPC" was distracting, by that I meant the model it self and not the nature of it. that person is a Tremere. but the model is called Mage, I can change that if it REALLY bothers you !

1. No proof in game. No proof of demonic contract or that he serves a demon (Therefore no proof of Dark Thaumaturgy, since you can only learn it from a demon). This is pointless to discuss. You are assuming. Not everything in the game is explained, nor should it be if it is deliberately vague.

Also the listed clans in v_stats.txt are not always correct. Example: Andrei is listed as Brujah, when he is Tzimisce. That's just a gameplay mechanic. Vick could be neonate Baali Caitiff for all I know.

2. Yes you did. I'm not assuming anything, I'm going on exactly what you wrote. Mages are not vampires. Mortals cannot use vampire blood magic. What you said directly meant that Mage (Mage = Mage the Ascension) NPCs would use vampire blood magic. And you're English here is contradicting what I assume you are intending. It was your fault. The wording as I've said had unfortunate implications. Just a hazard of the language, so no bigggie. I'm just making sure no one gets the wrong idea about Thamaturgy and True Magick.

You're wording in the edit also implies mortal Mages are to be in the mod. Is this right? You need to pay attention to the wording. This is why I offered to edit news updates ages ago before you post them, SPECIFICALLY TO AVOID THIS SORT OF THING. (Note the capitals are for emphasis, not shouting). So yeah I'm just being really nitpicky so we avoid some lore errors in the mod. Remember some hardcore oWoD fans are VERY nitpicky and complain. I've seen rather disparaging remarks on forums concerning our mod by such folk. This is why I want the lore to be as accurate as possible. That's why I am being really anal. I'm not trying to screw with you or anything, I'm just discussing a problem that I see.

Really this just the pedagogue in me needing to be unleashed. So TL;DR version: Using the words Mage/s was misleading. Problem solved. I think we are done here ;). The issue has been cleared up.

1. I just stated the Obvious. He had Celerity and Presence. Unless you want it to be otherwise.

2. So do you agree on the new edition ? Magic for mages, thaumaturge for vampires. clear ?!

Pretty much, just your wording was slightly misleading before. I'm fine with Mages reusing the fire spell in the mod, so long as the descriptive text in the update and the like doesn't call it Thaumaturgy. That way people unfamiliar with the setting won't get the wrong idea. The edit you made should suffice for this page.

Again Vick's clan is unimportant (has no real impact on the game). I think we're done here on this page.
