The Fractured Prism The higher truths of the Supernal World are constantly broadcast down into the Fallen World, distorted into a thousand different forms — such as the occult beliefs of Sleepers throughout the world. A mage versed in these traditions can see past the Sleeper’s occult trappings to the Supernal truth, like a faint light that is invisible to the blind. Privy to such culture-bound magical secrets, these mages wield power unknown to others.
