Default severely limited Magery

In a low level game I'm playing in, my character has Magery (song) and was looking into buying a few levels with animal College only as well. Then i realized the only one limitation rule existed. I was wondering if anyone has allowed this rule to be ignored with either unusual background or a rules exemption perk, and if so how it turned out. Thanks.

I've allowed completely different Magerys to be bought, ie: Magery One College Only several different times.

It's rarely cost effect to this so it never concerned me.

Can you point me in the direction of the one limitation on Magery rule? Thank you.

The last sentence on basic 66 starts a statement that you can add one of the limitations. The one is in italics, which I took to mean you get only one.

It isn't so much "Only one limitation ever" as it is "Only one type of Aspected Magery Limitation is allowed".

Quote:
Magery 0 costs 5 points for all mages, but you may apply one of the limitations below to the 10 points/level for Magery 1+. Limited Magery is sometimes known as “aspected Magery.”
In this case of "player wants multiple types of Aspected Magery, or even a Multiple Aspect Magery (ie One College Song Magery), this is how I handle it:

Multiple Different Aspected Magerys: They can buy multiple different Aspects, that only apply on "one per" basis. If we're going full cinematic I let them use Alternate Advantages to make it cheaper (and thus a little better than just buying unaspected Magery).

Multiple Aspect Magery: For example; One College Song Magery, they get the largest limit at full price and the next at -15%. Thus One College Song Magery would be -55% (or 4.5CP per level). Each new Aspect limitation is at -15%.



For slapping regular old limitations on there, no change to base Limitation Rules.
