Quote:As for titles, I do like the idea of using Styrash names. Perhaps this project will include putting a few more words in the dictionary!
Quote:All the teachings with magic will end up blending a little bit, but I would suggest that a mage gets his Introduction to Sphere Two class during late level 2, early level 3 where he'll be "pushing" and "pulling" oun around, then seeing the effects.
Quote:As for the level 11 thing... Well, the theory behind this is that level 11 is actually impossible for anyone to reach. You can work your but off, but 10 is as far as any one person can naturally go. Only through an encounter with the Orb can you bump up to level 11. How the Chosen got so powerful, no one really knows (but, as I recall, they were considered clerics, so...)
Quote:Yes, I know that's how it's been for quite a while. However, I'm failing to see why direct exposure to the Orb could permanently increase one's power.
Quote:The Chosen weren't considered clerics, as far as I know. Religion hadn't become that organised then.
Quote:Certain legends, however, claim that each of the Chosen were gifted with their incredible power by one of the gods, to serve as their proxy on Caelereth (though the Chosen is not necessarily aware of this). That'd be why they aren't clerics as we know it: their powers were given unconditionally (as far as anyone knows anyway).
