- 1 Ability or Specialty
- 1 Charm, Martial Arts Charm, or Spell
- 1 Merit
- 1 Willpower
- 1 Evocation
- Others can help speed training time. By rolling Charisma+Lore, they can assist as follows: Helping decreases the necessary training time by 20%, each success increases the reduction by 10% until 50%, then it increases by 5% until 70%, and thereafter each success increases by 1%. A maximum of 100% would result in 1 hour of training. No retconjuration except by GM fiat.
- Base: 20%
