Quote from the spell Enlightenment.
Quote
This spell can both be used on a caster or on another human or animal target. Some professors at the Ximaxian Academy use this spell to help their pupils both learn more quickly and to help them focus better. Students will also use this spell on themselves before tests or quizzes, or even before class.
There is precedence in Wind magic that it can and does permit it's students the ability to learn quickly. As there is no evident property listed in the spell for this particular incantation, I am open for ideas in this regard.

Mechanically Enlightenment is out of date, but level and feasibility wise it isn't. So yes, that would be the spell used to help in retaining information.



Quote
The winged aspect I will relate to the Reflection spell. Instead of requiring the mage to read someone's mind to create the illusion the mage is instead exhibiting images from their own mind. Taking the complexity of stealing another's thoughts out of the equation and instead revealing the mage's thoughts/imagery to others.

Reflection unfortunately is out of date. I am unclear if it can function as a Sphere I spell, where there is little real capability of 'transmitting data' between two individuals.

Illusions haven't really been touched since the early days, and unfortunately the early days did not have all the mechanical details in check (properties didn't exist then). I will ask Arti how he intended them to work with Sphere I.

Just to polish up where we are at ...... Would using the property of Clarity work for the retention idea? If so, I'll alter that now.

Should I await word from Arti on the illusion aspects? Or simply move on and keep the hows and whys vague?

Property of Clarity should work. Just make sure you say that it's making the mind more clear, and thus aiding in the retention of data through creating a mental environment where it is easier to learn and retain knowledge.

Obviously, you will need practice to be able to keep that knowledge.


I have sent Arti a PM on the illusion aspects. I'd say just leave it be for now (maybe strike out that section for now) and we can come back to it once we have a definite answer. Considering that Sphere I for Wind Magic is supposed to be illusions, I'm hoping that it will work in some fashion that just eludes me at the moment (I'm thinking that maybe it depends on *which* specific ounia you increase the influence of).

Clarity issues addressed in the 'Red' paragraph. I left the illusion paragraph as it is a fundamental of Wind Magic and will most likely require some minor tweaking after word comes from Arti.

The great toilet of Santharian Magic! The inability for dozens of minds that write magic on a daily basis, to define the most fundamental of aspects of what they write about .... properties. No insult intended, as I have added to this cesspool personally.

Lywen,

Go ahead and continue working with Fox on the magic. It seems ok to me now. I had thoughts of it being overpowered, but Josie convinced me otherwise. We'll see about those few issues with Arti I suppose.  ;)

Lywaen, go ahead and leave the Illusion for now. Art hasn't responded but I'm pretty positive it works, it's just the exact mechanics of it that will need discussion later. I believe that increasing/decreasing the intensity of certain individual ounia in a certain pattern is what forms the Illusion, so should be possible for Sphere I.
