Default Re: New Technique of the Week: an ongoing thread

Making up <subject> (Occultism). Average, default prerequisite, no upper limit. This lets you buy up skill in inventing a convincing narrative about an occult subject. This is mostly useful for creating fiction, or in settings where predictions about the occult aren't susceptible to testing that will convince believers. People who use this technique may well regard it as the product of research.

This technique is also possible for many schools of Hidden Lore, some kinds of Theology, and some Professional Skills. When applied to modern sciences, it usually produces pseudo-science.
