I've been involved in one aspect or another of the adventure games hobby for the past twenty-five years. Started playing in 1987. (First game? Champions, followed by CyberSpace, the Iron Crown cyberpunk game for Space Master, their sci-fi Rolemaster spin-off.) Was hired by InQuest Magazine in 1996, where I started my editorial career. Since then, I've done work for Green Ronin, Malhavoc Press, Dream Pod 9, and White Wolf. I managed two different game stores in the metro Boston area in the 2000s, and am now working primarily freelance. Still gaming after all these years.

I have a weakness for good coffee and bad puns.

comment Is there any way a mortal could see through “Cloak Of Night” (Obfuscate 3)
@VolkanUlukut Closer to the second. His facial features will be blurred, but his height, build, and clothing will be perceptible. It won't conclusively identify him, but it could give people something to work with. (Investigation checks on behalf of the museum staff will, of course, modify the situation — or Larceny checks on the part of the vampire.)

comment Should you communicate the number of Doors required?
You often do reveal that, though; it's common to have a social roll resisted by the opponent's Resolve or Composure, which will take a particular number of dice out of the actor's pool.

comment Joining a Legacy in Mage the Awakening
The OP's referring to a particular legacy in that second paragraph; he's just misspelled it. I've added a link.

There's a reference to it in one of the scenarios in the GMC.
