This has been fully updated now.  If anyone would like to sign up for any of the entries in need of a re-write please either send me a PM or post here and I will consider your request.  Posts will be deleted a few days after an answer has been delivered to keep clutter to a minimum.

An aura for Drasil for keeping this list updated! That's alot of red.. ;)

Ummm...Drasil...I revised the Shape Smoke wind spell, and Fox approved it. So I don't think it needs to be updated... :undecided:

Ah, alright.  I didn't bother looking over the spells Mina had already marked as either ok or in need of an upgrade so that's why its still in red.  I'll change it right now.

As an aside for Artimidor, the Shape Smoke spell is still listed as being level 2 on the magic menu even though it is now level 4


Title: Re: Entry Status

See, I'm not a magic expert anymore, and I do whoever decides what here. But I have serious doubts if what's going on here makes that much sense.

All that this spell (Shape Smoke) really was is to change smoke to a certain form temporarily, say like Gandalf shaping a dragon out of smoke from his pipe. If this isn't a low level spell, then I don't know what is. Now suddenly this most simple of all spells turns into a level 4, Sphere II spell. See, I'm not really seriously concerned with what our magicians do here, but as an amateur I have my questions.

It was actually the other Magic Mod who recommended that this spell be changed to lvl 4. Specifically, it was my Nightshade Cloud spell that was requested to be changed as it was originally a lvl 2 spell. It uses the same principles as Shape Smoke...

So if that unnamed magic mod is out there, come explain yourself!  :P

My guess is that it was made level IV is because it requires the physical manipulation of the ounia into new patterns, which falls into Sphere II.  Magic levels don't work based upon how "easy" or "simple" the effect is, but how that effect can be realistically achieved using Ximaxian techniques.  If you wish to change this, it would require completely scrapping the current magic system and the years of work that has gone into making it so complex.  I don't want to sound offensive or abrasive, but the time to raise this argument was 5-6 years ago Art, not now when there is nothing that anyone can do about it.

I'd just like to point something out very quickly. The level four water magic spell "Liquidization" is far from up to date even though it as listed as such. I would like to volunteer to revise it, and possibly to revise other spells if I would be allowed to. These updates need to be done.

Hi Eldor,

In what way does Liquidization need an update in your opinion? It lacks an Overview section, but other than that I'm not sure what needs to be changed? Maybe you could explain your view (since you know more about Ximaxian magic than I do)?

In any case, the original entry was written by Fox, who has been around recently, even though she hasn't posted. So if you had suggestions for updates to the entry, maybe write her a PM to see what she thinks? I believe we don't usually change entries without the permission of the original author, unless he or she has ceased to be active and doesn't respond to contact attempts.

If you wish to revise it, be my guest. It is definitely out of date.
