Magical Reduction

Classes and Levels: Mage(53)

School: Arcane (Skill)

Syntax: automatic

Even though the Arcane is a powerful force, creatures have become adept at creating
defenses to shield themselves from it through the ages. It is more common than one would
initially think. Mages, over time, learn to find ways to make their spells more effective,
by twisting their spell’s essence into a more potent form, which can rip through the
defenses of their targets. Further training allows a Mage to concentrate on the moment of
impact and infuse a jolt of their essence to further aid the spells penetration
capabilities.

magic defenses (+potency, +chance).

better ones. Since the power of Mages are limited, they can only create an essence shard with one relevant ability. They

much lower then if they just choose one.

Focus: Adventurous

Arcane Swell

Classes and Levels: Mage(100)

School: Focus: Adventurous (Skill)

Syntax: use arcaneswell

Arcane Swell is something of great power. It is a mark of true mastery in the elemental
arts. It is something shunned and frowned upon. It is… too powerful! This ability is
forbidden from use unless dire circumstances call for it. For it has the potential to
decimate the area it’s used in.

The Mage summons forth a huge arcane swell above them which drains portions of essence from
the area to fuel their spells. The arcane swell pulses every few seconds transferring the
essence from the lands directly into the Mage. The end result is amazing: The Mage has
enhanced damaging power and the area becomes drained from magic. In some cases, the entire
area can be drained and magic simply cannot be used.

In addition, Erius and other Mages may not entirely enjoy your use of Arcane Swell. This
skill, in addition, displays area and world wide messages while used.

Arcane Swell (user):
siphons an area of essence to provide the following benefits (+potency, +duration),

ability.

Essence Infusion (user): increases essence regeneration by 25% for a medium length of time
(+potency, +duration).(-reuse)

Essence Inundation

Classes and Levels: Mage(70)

School: Focus: Adventurous (Skill)

Syntax: use essenceinundation <target> – executes the ability on the target(Single)

Sometimes a Mage will lose control of the ability to concentrate with their mind. This can
be quite common in the wild – where danger lurks around every corner. While this can be
devastating since concentration is needed to cast spells, there are some Mages who can
still use the essence they have stored in their bodies. By relaxing their internal being
and then using what concentration remains, they can successfully release all of their
stored energy at a target in an explosion that rivals the ages. Though, the Mage is drained
for some time after and they cannot contact the Gaia Tributary.

The Acane Order frowns upon the use of this skill. It is common knowledge that any Mage
seen using this spell will be arrested on sight and put on trial.

Essence Inundation (single ally): deals arcane damage based on essence

Additionaly (user), it prevents channel and intervention from being used for a long length
of time.(-reuse)

magical.

School: Ice (Spell)

Syntax: cast frigidheart <target> – executes the ability on the target(Single)

Element: Ice

Charge: +1 Ice

During the Age of Magic, a Mage once was pitted against a friend, Gezgat, who became foe.
It was a day this Mage dreaded ever since the war began, for he knew he could never hurt
his friend. For weeks, the Mage toiled crafting a spell, which would only be used when
–no, if– they met in battle. This spell would freeze his heart, turning it into ice. When
that day finally came, the Mage, in a symbolic gesture of how he felt, used it on himself.
He fell to the ground clutching his heart. Gezgat, perplexed for a moment, realized what
his old friend had done. Gezgat promptly roasted him with a fire spell. Such were the days
from the Age of Magic.

Classes and Levels: Mage(10)

School: Ice (Spell)

Syntax: cast frostspike <target> – executes the ability on the target(Single)

Element: Ice

is as deadly as it is simple. In addition to the spike’s ability to penetrate many defenses, the frigid temperature often
inflicts frostbite at the site of the wound and can send the target into shock. The impact of the projectile and the extreme
cold reduce the target’s ability to continue fighting effectively.

the staying power of metallic materials, limiting the duration of the ice armor’s
protection.

To further increase the effectiveness of this skill, purchase and train the Elemental Ice

forethought and application of will, raw essence could take on the form of the natural

it is transmuted into lightning itself, which streaks at whatever the caster concentrates
upon.

Element: Lightning

Charge: -1 Lightning

My mind is old and strained, yet even now that moment comes back to me with a lucid
brilliance that I know to be accurate. It’s as if time is parting and allowing me to step
back into that day. If only all my memories were so vivid:

“They glowed white-hot, and then ultraviolet. He seemed to be draining into them, lending
his life force to their anomalous sentience. They propelled themselves toward the
abomination, conducting themselves into a swarming cloud of malfeasance that surrounded the
abomination. They looked for weak spots and rent the flesh, biting with razor-sharp teeth
of electricity.”

Blue Jet

Classes and Levels: Mage(100)

School: Spec: Lightning (Spell)

Syntax: cast bluejet <target> – executes the ability on the target(Single)

Element: Lightning

Charge: -3 Lightning

A young Mage was exploring the north of Lon’Gordia after having finished conducting some
academy business with the Dwarves of Camoon when he noticed an odd natural phenomenon:
lightning that occurred in the frozen northern wastes of Lon’Gordia known by the locals as
Blue Jets. The lighting was of unusual force and severity and the Mage wanted to recreate
it as a weapon against his foes. Carefully he memorized every detail of that place while
camping out in the harsh northern environments for many months. Eventually he was able to
make a magical connection with the upper atmosphere which produced the lightning: to bring
the destruction of the Blue Jet to his enemies.

Blue Jet (single victim): deals lightning damage (+potency) and a chance to deal knock down
effects (+potency, +chance)

Additionaly (magic user), it causes Electrifying Dance for the next 2 triggers or until the
effect dissipates (+potency, +triggers, +duration).(-reuse)

Discharge

Classes and Levels: Mage(35)

School: Spec: Lightning (Spell)

Syntax: cast discharge <target> – executes the ability on the target(Single)

Element: Lightning

Charge: -2 Lightning

As the ages passed and Mages began to specialize in particular elements it was realized
that the energy drawn when static charge was cast was primarily electrically based. A
skilled Mage is able to harness this energy, draw it from their donors into themselves, and
then concentrate it on an enemy. It is a dangerous procedure as the pent up energy must be
carefully managed and quickly discharged. Once that balance is understood, however, this
spell has very potent affects. The energy, being both electric and magic, attacks its
victim from externally and internally at the same time.

Discharge (single victim): unleashes any static charges to deal lightning damage
(+potency).(-reuse)

potency – damage/effectiveness, reuse – length of ability cooldown

Element: Lightning

Charge: +2 Lightning

“Fire and Ice are things of patience. Long so embers smolder, deceiving with their heat.
The ice that is thickest is that which has been for eons. But lighting…lighting cares
nothing for patience. Lightening comes and goes as it pleases, staying in one place for but
a moment. Harness that impatience, Mage, and cast faster!” – Darkien, Lightning Mage, 2nd
Age.

Dissipation (magic user): decreases delay of lightning spells for the next 2 triggers or
until the effect dissipates (+triggers, +duration, +chance).(-reuse)

Element: Lightning

School: Spec: Lightning (Spell)

Syntax: cast polarization <target> – executes the ability on the target(Single)

Element: Lightning

Charge: +1 Lightning

While some spells strive to create something or to take without giving, this spell seeks to
redistribute that which already exists. By creating a miniature charged anomaly the Mage
seeks to swap a moment of time with their enemy. A moment of sloth for a moment of haste.
While it may seem unfair to the victim, the Mage understands the balance is involved and
upheld.

Polarization (single victim): increases delay for a short length of time (+duration) and a
chance to decrease attack rating for a short length of time (+duration, +chance)

Additionaly (magic user), it decreases delay of lightning spells for a short length of time

Element: Lightning

Charge: -2 Lightning

It was towards the end of the battle. The defending Mage weakly mused: “I fear I am not who

pulsars erupted around the attacking Mage, siphoning off the attackers life. A powder of
ash was all that remained.

medium length of time.(-reuse)

School: Spec: Lightning (Spell)

Syntax: cast ribbonlightning

Element: Lightning

Charge: -2 Lightning

As Mages continued to master the elements they learned to not just emulate a natural
occurrence but to CREATE one. With this spell the Mage perfected the conditions of
atmospheric lightning and was able to create a localized thundercloud shaped by essence.
With much concentration and will the Mage is then able to rain destruction down upon all
those foolish enough to engage the Mage.

deals lightning damage (+potency),
causes Electrical Spasm for a short length of time (+duration), and
causes System Shock for a short length of time (+potency, +duration).(-reuse)

School: Spec: Lightning (Spell)

Syntax: cast ridethelightning <direction>

Element: Lightning

Charge: +3 Lightning

It is said that the master of an element becomes the very visage of the element. This spell
is not that, but the Mage taking on some small aspect of lighting, speeding up their
movement for a time. Yet to many, it will appear as if the Mage has turned into lightning
and shot far away.

Ride the Lightning (magic user): allows the magic user to quickly move in a single
direction (+distance, -reuse).

Static Charge

Classes and Levels: Mage(35)

School: Spec: Lightning (Spell)

Syntax: cast staticcharge

Element: Lightning

Charge: +1 Lightning

This spell is thought to come from the very antiquity of magic. When practitioners were
still learning the ways of essence manipulation they often could not summon up enough power
on their own to complete their spells. They would use this technique to draw energy for
their circle or coterie to complete their spells. As Mages grew in power this practice
became a way to �super charge� spells and they found ways to take power from unwilling
participants.

Static Charge (victims in the room): adds explosive static charges which can be discharged
in the future for a short length of time (+duration).(-reuse)

duration – length of effect, reuse – length of ability cooldown
