I like the Moros too. Because it's got 'Mo' in it. AKA, My nickname (short for Moritz)

Mages have paths too now? Alot has changed from Ascension.

Paths are partial replacements for Traditions. From the Wikipedia article (since I don't trust my memory):

Acanthus: Fate and Time
Mastigos: Mind and Space
Moros: Death and Matter
Obrimos: Prime and Forces
Thyrsus: Life and Spirit

where Entropy in the previous version (sort of) split into Death and Fate.

There are also five Orders, giving the same five-by-five structure as in all other NWoD games.

Sounds like 3.0 to 3.5. Just more books to sell, more money to make for "the Man".

But, you're not cynical at all, right :p

Nah, I wasn't pissed off much at all when it was only a few months after I bought 3.0 that 3.5 came out, then had to buy it all again. I was livid.

Acanthus is one of my favorites.

I think Acanthus suits my personality the best, but I can work with any of them as long as I get to focus on indirect or subtle forms of magic: Space, Time, Fate, Mind - and to some extent spirit or prime. I don't like the glaringly obvious magic quite as much - forces, matter, life, death. Mastigos is okay but I'm a bit bored with 'angst' characters. Thyrsus would be alright with the right angle. Moros would rank dead last (no pun intended.) Obrimos is too showy for my tastes but I imagine I could have it in me to make it work with a few characters at least.

personally I like the Moros myself and my second favorite would be the Mastigos

Awww I missed the poll.
Thyrsus all the way. I love the life and spirit aspects, being all nature focused yet worldly. It is by far my favorite.
