thats what i was trying to say. lol.;)  But, the question is, how hard would it be to lift the water into the air and fling it at an oppenent... which is why we went into this side disscussoin anyways. Would we just increase the level? and to what?

I was just saying, it takes a serious wave to hurt somebody badly, that and the fact that wave already exists, makes the point valid, but irrelivent.

33  Santharian World Development / Magic in the Lands of Caelereth / Re: Torrential Rage on: 09 August 2005, 16:52:00
I agree that it would take a powerfull mage, but if you move it like a wave i think it still would be a much lesser effect. It would take powerfull mage to make a wave (which is already a spell right?) move fast enough that it hits somebody full body and really jacks them up. Knocking back I can see, but it is not really concentrated enough to do allot else, unless its moving really fast... And i thought wave is already a spell, i now that one of dereks characters uses a wave like spell when attacking merchant ships... one sec lemme checkness on the discriptor thingy.

Edit

Sorry that took so long, yea wave is a spell, and it makes a wave, just like you suggested.. and it takes level nine to slaughter stuff.

I already understood it by now, thanks though, after reading your way of explosion... I did not realize that by intensifying or centralizing or anything that that secondhanddedly changed the ahm to soor... im kew now. I think. Maybe it could be optional between moving it across the air and across the earth... Maybe increasing spell casting time? Or caster level?

sorry i mistyped, i mean making certain aspects stronger, like how mina was talking. It does not seem to be second or third, so would it be first... like enlargeing that aspect? Sorry but for awhile here im going to be saying dumb things like that, so that I can apply the things i read.:o

oops... I know this is just me being ignorant and should not be here, but what kind of sphere would the actual changing of the ounia;)  be? Aside from that It seems clear enough to me, though Marvin is right about the sliding along the floor thing, doing such would make the spell much less effective, your best chance for killing your foe would be tripping them and having them drown? or hitting their head on a rock?

37  Santharian World Development / Magic in the Lands of Caelereth / Re: Torrential Rage on: 09 August 2005, 11:27:00
ah, ok, thanks.:thumbup  

38  Santharian World Development / Magic in the Lands of Caelereth / Re: Torrential Rage on: 08 August 2005, 23:57:00
It makes sense to me, though do you mean that the water would return to wence it came, or  just fall after smashing into the target? And would that change it to Xeua magic? Maybe I still don't understand the fundimental differances between the spell schools. But i though that the seconds sphere was more about moving the ouns closer together or farther apart. and actually changing the ahm to soor was Xeua, whereas changing the soor to ahm was Euca?

Yea my spelling and grammar are not commendable in any way, and i do tend to make words up...:evil    I will start to work on this stuff soon as I get the rest of my work done, meaning once I do some more corrections on Ne'iav'rine.

The stolen life force really gives the user strength and stamina, though it will help to offest some of the larger wounds inflicted by the blade. So you gain some you lose some is how it works really.

You have lived a life of cruelty and atrocity, you have bathed in the blood of the innocent, you have considered every act of depravity and your corruption knows no bounds. I am the angel of justice, I am the accumulation of all of your sins. Prepare for your redemption.

Thanks Sturm, This will take a long time as I do like to spend most of my time in the Rp section, and really am not looking forward to we working this...:upset   But slowly I will try to repay you for your graces... in reading both of my unreasonably long CD's

It is much better now, though the myth lore section is kind of mixed with the history section, would you like me to seperate the two, I think I could just make the lore about the earlier document and keep the choosen stuff as history.

41  Santharian World Development / Miscellaneous / The Midnight Blade on: 12 December 2005, 23:48:00
Pikel suggested I put this up. This is directly from my CD and I realize it needs changes. Give me a few days. ;)    

Overview:

This blade is thousands of years old and originally wielded by the bone queen, then later dubbed the midnight blade and used by one of the Chosen. This weapon enhances the wielders Wind spells in truely gruesome ways.

Appearance:

Moh'epher is a heavy two handed sword, with an oddly pocked and pitted blade, making it resemble volcanic rock. The sharp edge of the weapon is deep Karikrimson, and the fuller is a void of Nor'sidian. This makes the blade look like it is perminatly stained with blood. The blade is full tang, and extends into a light pommel which does little to balance the weapon. While appearing to be of iron, the blade is much lighter and stronger than this would make one assume. The hilt has an intricate design, though it is unknown just what the design depicts. Because of what seem to be horns acting as the hand gaurd, it is usually assumed to be a very stylized representation of Kahrlkaroth. The actual hilt and hand gaurd seem to be of volcanic rock, yet is far stronger and harder than any good steel and easy to hold. A weilder's hands meet as little slippage as if the hilt were wrapped in supple leather.  No one is quite sure what the weapon is made of, though it is easily as strong as mithril, and seemingly impervious to rust.

Uses:

Wind spells are known for their healing of the soul and body. Those under the influence of the Midnight Blade use the powers of wind to wreak havok upon everything that lives. The weapon warps the effects of spells, making them more powerful, and much more malicious. Usually this means that when a mage casts a violent spell, it gives him/her some of his/her target's life force, and inflicts extra vile damage upon the target. With this weapon spells become utterly devastating. A blast from the Midnight Blade can easily rend powerful enemies to peices. When the user attempts to heal others with spells such as enlightenment, the effects are both good and bad. On one hand, the person will indeed find themselves cured of what had ailed them, and the blade will instensify the wielder's abilities. On the other he is often burdened with some of the wounds that he heals (mental, physical or spirtual), and the weapon taints the very person who the weilder is trying to save with its dark malevolence.

Such a powerful tool comes at a terrible price. The physical effects of this soul drain show in the wielder's eyes, which usually appear to be washed out and faded. Also her body is physically weakened. While using the blade to cast spells, she is physically damaged. This damage ranges from sore muscles, bloody noses, and burnt fingertips to broken bones, large lacerations, third degree burns, and internal bleeding. Each different wound is of course granted with its own ingenuitive form of pain. If the spell deals damage to annother, such as static bolt or clap of thunder, the life force stolen from the target heals some of these wounds.

A spell with a longer casting time usually means more damage, as the weilder's wounds grow over the duration of the spell. The basis of the wound, or its beginging, is determined by the power of the spell. A mage must concentrate through the pain in order to finish casting the spell. This, in addition to the chaos of battle, is a daunting task indeed. When over exerting himself, the mage can black out due to the pain and damage his body has taken; this can lead to disasterous effects, like spell fizzling. If he can stay awake through the a powerful spell, then he will invariably black out just after the spell is finished.

The body is not the only aspect that this sword thrists for. The mind is slowly maddened by its power. Each moment that one holds the blade in her hands, it urges her to do evil acts. Casting spells for nefarious purposes, slaughtering the innocent, rape, pillage, murder, and the pursuit of chaos. Each day her will is broken more and more, until it brings her to do its bidding. About once a month, more or less depending on the will of the weilder and how long the blade has crushed her mentality, she is driven mad by The Midnight Blade's dark intentions, she remembers everything she has done, she watches herself do it in Co'or's vile name; yet she cannot stop herself. By the time she regains control, it is absolute. Sometimes it will take minutes, sometime it takes days. Every time, however, she once again has complete control of herself, only for the cycle to begin again. As the time of her breaking comes closer, her mind can lose control at vital moments, such as the directing of one of her powerfull spells.

The wielder's soul is also drained by the weapon's power. This cycle is guided by the light of the sun. At any time where the sun is comming onto the blade, she grows weaker. By high noon on a sunny day she could more more cast a spell than you or I, as the blade needs her spirit to defend itself from the purity of sunlight. She feels frail and weak, as she indeed is. Her body is more suseptable to damage, as is her mind. She is much slower and the world seems to be a blur rushing ahead of her. But as the sun sets she is rejuvinated and all the life that she had lost surges back into her, with the additional boost granted by the sword's might. She feels like she could crush stones with her bare hands and can feel her magical potential pulseing in her ears and fingertips.

Lastly, The Midnight Blade's influence on the wielder's spells wanes by daylight. If he could summon the energy to cast any spell in pure sunlight, without a cloud in the sky, which he cannot, unless he is supremely powerful, it would be as pure as any good wind mage's. But by midnight, or on a stormy day, the spell is more the sword's than his own.

History

A blade of this power was not built this century and surely not in the century before that. Many millenia ago, when the "midnight-blade" was well known and feared, weilded by one of the most ruthless Chosen to walk the land, sages debated the blade's origin. Some clerics stated that the blade was built for Lokath by Kahlkaroth, citing its ability to corrupt wind magic, and the demonic engravings on the hilt and pommel, more skeptical historyians suggested that it was created for the Bone Queen. No body knows why it harms its wielder so, some say it is because the weapon is ment to be handled by a Demon Lord, and uses the godly powers of such a master to enable much more powerful effects, others assume that the mortal creator of the weapon was mad.

The only two written accounts of the Midnight Blade supposedly originated in a piece of literature that escaped the ruins of Fa'av'calar, and much later, an ancient tome in the Aellenrhim Library. The writtings are broken into two very different time periods. One is old beyond dating, and the other is dated around 8000- b.S. Both are now lost, due to a devistating orcish raid. That is all beside the point however. Within the least aged papers it is stated that the blade was mended within massive forges of pure liquid flame (which many historians believe refers to the heart of a volcanoe) and cooled within a pool of an elven slave's blood. The smith of the weapon is not clearly stated, though it is said that he had powers of demonic origins. The Tome's subect is centered around the times of 9000 b.S., which is about the same time as the war of the chosen. This leads to the belief that the blade may have been created by one of the Archmages to be used in the battle of the winds. The coloration of the blade being a deep crimson black seems to suggest that it might even have been hammered within the bloody forges of Tak'Dinal. Yet it is noted that the entry specifically used the word mended, which infers that the blade had already been forged, and was simply being reshapen.

The first and elder document is far older than the other and its origins alone truely date the Midnight Blade. The scroll tells the tale of the bone queen and her battle with the orcish general, Usígar Locíumírak. It clearly states that she is armed with a gigantic blade with devestating magical powers, which is broken in the heat of battle. The description states that the blade was engraved with the liknesses of the horned lord of darkness, and was as long as the woman who wielded it. The perciseness of the discription to the unique appearance of the Midnight Blade leaves little doubt to historians that it was used by the Bone Queen.

Neither document gives concrete evidence to the actual origins of the blade, though hints of Co'or's bidding lace both, and both do mention the wrathfull queen of wind. The sword's massive girth seems to denote that it was not made for any human hands, as it is longer then most men are tall, far to heavy to be used effectively in actual combat by a human. A demon on the other hand would find the weapon very capable, and this would explain some of the strangest properties of the blade.

The battle that ended the War of the fallen took place near the castle of Tak'Dinal, at the great gash in the earth that is now Eight Winds Bay. In this battle a massive spell was cast that destroyed the surrounding area and all of the warriors in it, including four of the Chosen. Considering the proximity to The Archmage Eckra The Cruel's great tower, Tak'Dinal, it is safe to assume he was one of the mages to be caught in the spell's path. Those who assume that he was the warrior who reforged the broken blade say that he brought the weapon with him to that final battle, which he would then have fought till the bitter end. If so, the Midnight blade may still rest in those depths.

The tome that calls the weapon "The Midnight Blade" goes on to further detail about the blade's creation and uses. Many of the powers that the book speaks of seem unlikely to really have been inbued within the weapon. Such as the notion that the blade eventually mutates the wielder into a demonic apperation. The book also supports historians theories in stating that the blade was last taken into a great battle of wrongful death, and where no man lived. "With the twelves will, the blade was burried beneath sand and water for all of eternity. Let us all hope it shall never touch mortal hands again." These are the last words of the document, and with the Midnight Blades vile abilities, let the pray of the author be heard.

Kain stands at the gilded hall doors and cerebrates his actions. Should he enter, as one of the least experianced persons here? Could he stand being the fool in a house of kings? He sneers at the doors, as if his ingratitude for the sweat and fingercraps of the dev persons could sear their very hearts and force them to realize his innate prowess and mastery of all things. Yet, even as he begins to turn around, and finger the pommel of Moh'epher's massive hilt; he realizes that this is not abuout him, this about his good friend. His face twists into a sickening grimace as he mutters Not fully pertaining to the failures of I? Where could such salvation lay? With a heave of his long, graceful arm he swings the doors open, revealing a party that is already very much so underway. Seeing so many new faces, Kain is once again tempted to retreat back to the RP forum. He steels himself against his fears and strides with false pride to the center of all the attention. The depths of my heart praise your grace's. With this boon, a bane of many good souls, be thus assured, with this gem of brilliant aspect, of shining radiance and noble eminance, I bestow upon the the least wretched of mine wishes. May your posts ever posper in the evenecent light of acceptedness! With that said, he flourishes into his cloak, and with a teasing glint in his eye, unfurls the fingers surrounding a diamond of divine beauty. Women, through ages and eras, have always appreciated shiny rocks in the most favorable of ways, even those who play a facade of male orcishness. He gives her/him a rare smile, filled with sincere gladness, and hands her/him the rock. Kain then rushes back to the RP forum where he feels safe.

You have lived a life of cruelty and atrocity, you have bathed in the blood of the innocent, you have considered every act of depravity and your corruption knows no bounds. I am the angel of justice, I am the accumulation of all of your sins. Prepare for your redemption.
