Suggested Oblations:

First Attainment

Prerequsites: Mind 2(Primary), Gnosis 3, Subterfuge 2

The mage walks unnoticed by others, blending perfectly into the shadows. The shadows blend around the Mage obscuring him from sight. The shadows don’t hide the person so to speak, but the people watching on simply don’t want to see the person so believe that the mage is obscured by the shadows. If the mage appears to be dangerous he can still be seen. Any weapons must remain concealed for this to work. This attainment works the same as the spell "Incognito Presence*. To activate this attainment, the mage merely performs an instant action; no roll is required. The effect lasts for up to an hour. Any supernatural being must make a reflexive Composure + Gnosis roll and get a number of successes equal to the mages gnosis.

Second Attainment

Prerequsites: Mind 3(Primary), Gnosis 5

The mage walks into and can stop everyone from being able to remember the mage. The mage creates a shadow in the subjects brain that stops the mage from being able to process short term memories. This spell works like the spell Eternal Now. Everybody affected by this power makes a reflexive Gnosis + Composure roll needing to equal the gnosis score. If successful they can retain all memories.
