EDSG Episode 57 - Astral Sight

* Astral Sight and Astral Sensing

* Questions from Dustin

* Does a character directly perceiving astral space see native astral entities as imprints or in their full appearance?

* Does a character using Astral Sight see the imprints of astral entities present in astral space?

* Tangent into astral perception translating information about magical energy into stimuli the Namegiver can understand. It is not necessarily limited to sight.

* Astral Sight as a way for visually impaired characters to navigate the world.

* Can the patterns of purely astral entities be studied in the same way as patterns of physical objects?

* What does astral sensing perceive when it comes to dual-natured Horrors?

* Question from K Scott

* How can you tell a person/place/thing is tainted or corrupted? Can you just astrally perceive the target?

* Questions from Brian

* Lifesight and the Shaman spell Lifesense

* After consultation with Morgan, should behave like the Wizard spell Astral Sense, with the GM requiring new tests when appropriate.

* Can you use Astral Sight (or Lifesight) separately while the related spell is active?

* Can the user make a new Astral Sight test when they are aware of a poor initial result?

* Tangent into Josh’s general approach to astral sight. Providing mood and atmosphere, providing clues or information during an investigation.

* Describing what astral space and astral imprints look like.

* Question from Lee: Can Astral Sight provide insight into a subject’s emotional state?

* Question from Shane: Visual consistency of portraying astral space in published books?
