so what if the dead guy has no brain anymore? then does that mean that he cannot activate the raw emotions?

Again... How does fire animate a corpse? A fire in a candle is somewhat alive... is this the property of fire tha makes something "somewhat alive"?

A fire in a candle is in no way 'alive'. Santharia is not based on real life physics, what determines 'life' here is not necessarily the same basics that determine 'life' on Earth, at least according to Ximaxian magic. It is the basic structure of the element. Fire activates the emotional side of the soul, as well as animating the physical side of the body. Fire is like the heart, or the battery and engine of a car, or a reactor.

As for brain... this is a physical element of the body. Physical elements are based on Earth, and I am not sure how much the physical elements apply or are even necessary when dealing with magic here. The spiritual aspect (emotions and rational thought... fire and wind) do not require the brain to function, as far as I believe, the elements provide those aspects, not the brain. Fire could also provide raw emotions to a rock with sufficient skill.

Also on the topic of the Earth School, the last time I tried to get Ruil approved, because he knew two earth spells, he was rejected several times, simply because the spells were outdated.

Are Break and Solidify still considered "outdated", and thus unable to be used in the RPG?

No those particular spells are pretty much up to date.  There is a list somewhere of the earth spells needing rework.  Mainly, if you stay away from the Necromancy stuff you should be fine.  For everything else; everything written by me and Pikel is up to date along with some of Silfer's spells.

I personally recommend not to refer nor utilize the spell lists on the website when creating characters at the RPG. As even if all the spells were up to date, they'd be a very small representative portion of the effects that can be accomplished with magic.


Learning the way the system works and then making up your own spells and designs on the spot as necessary is more appropriate, IMO. Unlike traditional magic systems, ours isn't built around spell lists, instead, we have a solid system that determines the inner workings. So if you know the system, you can do anything you want, pretty much.

Oh okay. I did my research when I created Ruil originally, so I don't suppose the way earth magic works has changed much, but I'll read up on it again anyway.

Thank you for your answers, both Drasil and Fox. :D
