该书全称为《秘艺大师(Masters of the Art)(WW4017)》

永生法术
法师们的提醒:这些绝不是唯一能抵抗或逆转衰老的定式。并且它们都不是完美无缺的。毕竟,所有维持运转了如此之长的系统都可能衰亡。然而,这些定式已经被盟友们私下分享了几个世纪并且已经被证明比绝大多数同类型的更有效。如今它们都算得上是小有普及了——尽管焦点(Foci)和祭礼可能在不同组织间不尽相同,但系统都是一样的。在介绍这些定式的名字和方法上,请自由发挥,恰当即可。

隔阂岁月(起源●●●●●,熵●●●●,生命●●●,心灵●●,时间●●)
 这是一个被那些不能忍受时常活跃的作用于他们物理身体的宗派法师们所喜爱的“保养性质”的定式。一些圣叶法师通过它酿造永葆青春的药水;以太之子们因为它吹嘘自己的完美引擎(Phoenix Engine)。无论其外头所穿的服装,这个定式都能把法师的身体还原到他九年前的状态,高效地给予他又一个十年的寿命。因为定式所引发的矛盾反冲的确很强,所以用这个定式的宗派法师可能会在穹界界域施展它。
 [这个法术效果需要5个成功数,而难度是理所应当地非常高。施法过程通常都要加上一大串祭礼和大量塔斯。法师在使用生命法术复原他的身体时会暂时停止其衰败。时间领域帮助法师回忆起他九年前的模样(不是现在他认为的九年前的模样),心灵领域帮助他在心智上适应自己的大脑重置而不失去这九年的记忆。最后,法师必须是个起源领域的大师来为这一难以置信的重返年轻的法术供能。一旦这个定式被完成,行愿者照常衰老。]

石之宁静(起源●●●●●,时间●●●●,熵●●●●,生命●●●,心灵●●●)
 这一空明兄弟会最喜爱的定式能如此大幅地延缓衰老以至于肉眼根本看不出。一旦被使用成功,法师便无需反复施展它。
 如果法师能让自己不经常接触沉睡者的话,这个定式可以被看作是巧合魔法。他在起源领域上的精通能创造出一个几乎可以自我维持运作的、减慢时间和衰亡的式样。生命和心灵魔法保证他身心生理系统正常有序地运作。
 缺陷就是,法师依旧会消耗大量魔力, 并且必须定期给维持法术效果的起源式样供能。
 [因为这个定式比绝大多数的更高效,所以法师只需要花费大概1点魔素/周。但是如果没有可使用的魔素,法师就会承受1个健康等级的致命伤害/天,并且加速衰老。在某种情况下,矛盾点也会在这个微妙的阶段攻击法师,使其加速衰老到超过其实际年龄。尽管天国颂歌为此提出了一种理论,即不正常的衰老和能量的流动是对神性的冒犯,但真实起因仍然不明。
 这个定式并不能停止衰老,仅仅是将其延缓到一个非常小的程度。法师衰老1岁/50年。]

永生的代价?
 法师的永生伴随着代价。如果永生法术在第一次施展时不是“有目击者的破则”情况的话,那么当一些人首次意识到他比正常情况下要年轻些时,法师就会立即得到1或2点矛盾点。如果是在法师多次施展这些法术后才意识到的话,那他就会立即得到许多点矛盾点。
 同样地,随着时间流逝,法师与现实的接触会越来越少。请看第二章——非常古老的法师很可能会丧失他们的人性。幻劫(Quiet),劫火(Jhor)或类似的命运是古老法师都要面对的典型难题。没有同人类的联系,他们会很快沦为疯狂的猎物。
 最后,永生法术能在他人身上使用。但依旧有一个难题,那就是被使用的凡人也可能会像法师那样发展出幻劫或劫火,但是却不能像法师那样理解着去解决它。而且凡人在被给予永生时也会受到矛盾反冲。只有真正具体的变化——例如木乃伊的生命之咒(Spell of Life)——将一个凡人变成其他东西,才能避免矛盾。

原文:
Rotes of immortality
 Caveat magus: These are by no means the only tested rotes that can slow or reverse aging. Nor are they necessarily perfect. After all, any system sustained for too long is likely to deteriorate. However, these rotes have been grudgingly shared by allies for centuries and have proven more effective than most. They are somewhat ubiquitous — the foci and rituals may change from faction to faction, but the systems remain the same. Feel free to introduce these rotes with whatever name or methodology seems appropriate.
Shed the Years (••••• Prime, •••• Entropy, ••• Life, •• Mind, •• Time)
 This is a “maintenance” rote preferred by mystics who can’t bother with constantly active magics on their physical person. Some Verbena brew potions of youth; Sons of Ether boast of their Phoenix Engines. Whatever the outward trappings, this rote reverts the mage’s body to the state it was in nine years ago, effectively giving her almost another decade of life. Mystics who use this rote tend to perform it in a Horizon Realm, since the Paradox backlash could be intense indeed.
 [This Effect requires five successes, and the difficulty is appropriately frightening. The pretense of high ritual usually aids the process, as does the presence of Tass. The mage temporarily halts entropy while using Life magic to rejuvenate her body. The Time Sphere helps the mage recall what she was like (not what she thinks she was like) nine years back, and the Mind Sphere helps her mentally adjust to the resetting of her brain without losing the memories of the last nine years. Finally, the adept must be a Master of Prime to fuel such an incredible regression to a younger, stronger state. Once the rote is completed, the willworker ages normally.]

Serenity of the Stone (••••• Prime, ••••• Time, •••• Entropy, ••• Life, ••• Mind)
 This rote, a favorite of the Akashic Brotherhood, slows the aging process so drastically that the mage doesn’t seem to age at all. Once performed, the mystic need not recast the rote time and again.
 This rote can seem coincidental if the mystic secludes himself from regular contact with Sleepers. His Mastery of Prime creates a mostly self-sustaining Pattern that slows time and entropy. Life and Mind magic keep his faculties, both physical and mental, in proper working order.
 The downside is that the mage is still a “thaumivore” of sorts, and must periodically refresh the Prime Pattern maintaining the Effect.
 [Since this rote is more effective than most, the mage need only consume a point of Quintessence every week or so. If Quintessence isn’t available, the mystic takes a Health Level of lethal damage per day, and begins aging more rapidly. In some cases, Paradox strikes willworkers at this delicate stage, rapidly withering them beyond their actual age. The cause is unknown, although the Chorus theorizes that the irregular ebb and flow of energy is an affront to Divinity.
 This rote cannot stop aging, merely slow it to a crawl. The mage typically ages one year for every 50 she lives.]

What Price Age?
 Immortality for a mage comes with a price. If the immortality rotes were not originally “vulgar with witnesses,” then the mage suddenly accrues one or two points of Paradox the first time someone realizes that she is younger than she should be. If this has not happened over multiple castings of these rotes, then the mage may suddenly gain many points of Paradox.
 Also, the mage becomes more out of touch with reality as the years progress. See Chapter Two — very old mages tend to lose their human perspective. Quiet, Jhor and similar fates are typical problems for ancient mages. Without the grounding of human contact, they quickly fall prey to madness.
 Finally, immortality rotes can be cast on others. The problem, though, is that a mortal develops Quiet or Jhor as a mage would, but lacks the mage’s understanding of how to deal with it. Mortals also suffer Paradox breakdowns over time when given immortality. Only specific transformations — such as the mummy Spell of Life — turn a mortal into something else, avoiding Paradox.

除此之外还有一个比较著名的 “永生”法术叫“巫妖化(Lichdom)”,在《失落魔法1(Dead Magic I)》的古罗马一章(但是是由伊特鲁里亚人首创,现代基本只有赫尔墨斯秘会知晓)。同样有比较大的缺陷而且门槛一样不低...

PS:如果在这2个定式所要求的领域上都持有5级,指不定会有效率更高的方法?不过这个档次的法师肯定不会很多...相关领域(时间,生命,起源)上直接持有6级可能是更简单粗暴的办法

非常有趣。如果先后使用两个法术会有什么后果?

我也想过,如果确实没相关限制,理论上应该能真正永生
