Synchronicity refers to the magical skill and practice of aligning one's mind with another's - usually to shield against pain or to offer guidance against deeply held fears. The most exotic parts of the skill set is closely linked to Mastery, and though the Praetexta Court allows its study in strictly supervised environments, there's always the danger that law or custom will change - or simply be ignored in favor of preventative violence. The Masters of Synchronicity accept the risk. They see the good the magic can do.

Empathy

Empathy is the gentle skill of trying to imagine yourself in another person's circumstances, then trying to understand why he or she is doing things differently than you would.

Mental Bridging

Though much of the Synchronicity skill set is largely a function of Insight, the tools of Mental Bridging - of actually walking from the shores of one's own mind to those of another's - are the tools of Intelligence; of rigorous analysis and of the determined mastery of complex skills. The building of a bridge must be precise and rational in any event, but all the more so here - for if these bridges fall, madness is only the gentlest of the possible results.
