Encountered a problem in a game the other night, no one had written down their "magic" pool. I looked under quick character creation sections, and may have skimmed over it, but couldn't find it. By "magic" I mean supernatural specific for using powers e.g, vitae, essence?, glamour, mana, pyros, etc (newer games should be included I just don't have them). I'd like to have the answer be a reference, and include page numbers. Noticing that their's some information on this at the bottom of the character sheet? for example vitae 1d10, but it seems to me that there's a max for these pools? the max is what I'm trying to find out.
In the nWoD books using the World of Darkness core book, the pools of magical fuel are linked to the Power Stat (Blood Potency, Primal Urge, Gnosis, etc.). The limits are found in a common chart — in Requiem, it's on page 99; in Awakening, page 76.
To find this information, seek out the "Traits" section — it's often just before the Merits section — or, if using a PDF, search out "Max" in the text.
The following information is true for Requiem, Forsaken, Awakening, Created, and Lost.
POWER STAT. MAX FUEL
