Sacred Architecture rules need to be worked out. Ley Lines are related. Ley Cabwl are covered on Thaumatology, pp. Alchemy-focused characters might need the Gadgeteer advantage, and almost certainly want the Gizmo advantage. Ritual Path Specialists Pyramid 66, p. As written, this is a discount to energy in exchange for a chance at corruption and eventual damnation.
Words of Power are on Thaumatology, p. Cosmology seems to be the biggest headache. Vampires use templates from Blood Types, adapted for 4th edition.
