Yes, you can be a lower level than is allowed for your age.  I'm afraid I don't understand your other question.

Do the Volkek-Oshra have to be fire mages? Or can they be of any of those four schools?

Thank you for your advice,

Hi Phlegah,

An interesting question, I've been wondering about this myself. There is much in the Volkek-Oshra entry to suggest that Fire Magic is their strongest tradition, but I've found nothing that definitely rules out the possibility of a Volkek Oshra choosing a different element. So if you want to be a Volkek Oshra wind, water or earth mage, I'd say go ahead! (But I'm not a CD moderator, of course - and I can't guarantee the moderators will agree with me.) Maybe explain in your CD history how your character came to make her unusual choice of element?

Good luck with the character creation,

Fu

Hi Fu,

Thank you very much for your thoughts and advice. They are greatly appreciated. The main reason why I'm interested in one of the other schools is that the title Phlegah is hopefully going to get is 'Incompetent Mageling', and I figured that a school other than Fire might be worthwhile as a result. I initially decided on Incompetent Spellfizzler, but then I saw that Spellfizzler is a 'technical' term regarding magic in Caelereth and didn't want to do anything like that.

I might just go with the Fire School and play it safe.

Kindest regards,

Phlegah

Just as a  note, we generally allow a lot of things, provided they are explained properly. So if you have a good reason why your character would pick an element other than fire (like, embedded within his history and stuff, nothing out of the blue) chances are high we'll allow it, notwithstanding a margin of error ;)

Sorry for the late reply, but Irid and Fu are pretty much right.  As far as I know, there is no restriction to Volkek-oshra learning elements other than Fire except cultural ones, which can be explained away. 

I don't remember very clearly, but I think it was once mentioned on the dev board that once in a while a Volkek-oshra would pick Earth instead of Fire (well, they are on pretty good terms with the Zirghurim Dwarves), but it's much rarer to see them pick Water or Wind.

Hi Irid and Mina,

Thank you both for your explanations regarding the choices of elemental magic schools for the Volkek-oshra. I am slowly working through the CD for this orcish 'lady' and have inserted little things into her appearance, personality etc that suggest that she's going to be a Fire Mage.

Hopefully Phlegah will be ready for review soon, so my understanding of the magic system here can be improved as well.

Kindest regards,

Phlegah

It depends on who told you. If it was Josephine, it is probably right. Some of the spells on the main site are old and at least slightly out of date with the system, so you can't always trust them.

I am not sure who told you that Vanish is a high level spell. It isn't. It is up to date and is appropriate at level 1.


However, Valan is right in that many spells on the site are old and out of date. Vanish is not one of these though.

There is a fairly complete list of which spells are and are not out of date on the dev board. You can read it here.

Looking at the commentary on the CD, it would appear that it was Alexandre who suggested it was a high level spell.

In my review of the CD, I purposefully didn't comment on the magic section of it, as I don't know enough about how magic works in Santharia.

Perhaps send Azhira a message and request her eyes on it?
