Okay, so the layer is almost wind now. By continuing to force that wind to remain active (swirl around itself, general direction upwards) then you don't give the ground a chance to fall down. Think of keeping a tissue in the air by blowing air under it

Isn't that the exact opposite of what Artimidor is saying?

@art: Do you think a further "enchantment" class is needed? How would you define an enchantment?

4  Santharian World Development / Magic in the Lands of Caelereth / Re: Enchantments Overview on: 28 April 2004, 13:22:00
okay, I'll try to explain why I think this overview doesn't work:

if you keep increasing the wind proportion of a sword's car'all it'll get lighter, right? and as long as you keep "pumping", for the lack of a better term, you've achieved the result. Then until the car'all can balance itself, the so-called enchantment will weaken unless it no longer works = the previous proportions are achieved again.

so how can you classify "an elemental enchantment"'s duration?

(If the spell was sphere 1)

The "duration" depends on the changes you make. If you want to hinder the other parts of the car'all to "balance" themselves (I think this is what you mean by a "permanent enchantment"), you need  a Xeua link binding them to where they are.

If it's s2, well, then you already have made a sort of permanent change (like "break") - change in physical structure- see art's wonderful web example under break/solidify

So, chronus, according to your view this ("break") too should be an enchantment, if you put it this way, right? Yet, (correct me if I'm wrong) I think i've heard you say you didn't think it was. Basically, accoding to the very first paragraph of the overview that Talia quoted, every s2 spell should be a "permanent enchantment" according to this classification. Thus, the entry contradicts in itself.

Then I ask again: What's the point of creating an enchantment class/overview/sphere/whatever? Imho, doing so would only mean a rearrangement of the entire magic system, which again imho, is unnecessary.

Okay, how about this: What you've tried to accomplish in this entry fits well under the concept of sphere 1. You only "pinned" the information already present together. You didn't (and i'm glad that you did not do so) attempt to take, let's say, illusion from wind magic and stuffed it into another portion of the magic system. (which would have been a sphere two act)

Probably one of them is Krath. No matter how much they despise fire-folk, they would never miss an opputunity to "help the unfortunate" or in other words make tons of profit... muhahahaha coins, more of them coming this way!

Seriously, when should we get together and decide on the trade routes and resources? There is, unfortunately, a lot of crossreference that needs to be made... Just don't :hammer  :hammer   me for my impatience...

Take care everyone!

Also... who and where were the Doimo? :o

Hmm... shouldn't this go to the tribes section? (however, it makes more sense for it to stay here) Or since I'm basically describing the same things in my entry, should i move Krath here?

7  Santharian World Development / Places and Map Design / Re: TrumChaor, The fort on: 23 April 2004, 13:58:00
Hmm... If i remember correctly, that is also the time when the Empire of Krath has reached its largest borders in the east. Disputes with the Benderrath barbarians (or did we change them?) taking place. It's very likely for the devious Krants to launch an attack, especially when there is so much turmoil and chaos in the east. (the barbarians can't hold them long... tunnels beneath the river...) Maybe the dwarves were also fortrifying (how is this spelled?) against the rumours of a gigantic army coming their way?

One thing though Koldar, most Psyrpents despise water (or was it only this character on the rp boards?). It'd be funny to have them sailing across an ocean when they would hate to have the salty water across their dry skin :biggrin

I generally agree with you, but since this is a very busy time for most of us - and major issues are being discussed players should be prepared to wait. Look at Ailin, he's been waiting for almost 2 weeks to be approved, and nothing is missing so far. After all, patience is a virtue, isn't it?

PS: this is a very tired, overload Coren who can't even find the energy to log in and out.

Talia! That's ILLEGAL atm in the rpg board! LOL

So that was why i could never find you there! It's like 3 or 4 am... I'll never make it there, especially with school starting next week. :crazy

Also, for the new profiles, which guide(s) are in effect at the moment?

12  Organization and General Discussions / General Santharian Discussions / Re: IRC Report #1 on: 13 September 2003, 13:40:00
You can always try Gar's site, it seems to work.

:crazy  and I spent hours to find that name... Talia, you always leave me like... this ::speechless :


13  Organization and General Discussions / General Santharian Discussions / Re: IRC Report #1 on: 13 September 2003, 10:04:00
Hey, why do you have my name there? :speechless

(this is coren, btw)

14  Santharian World Development / The Santharian Library / Chapter Two: Of Fiery Beginnings and Lonesome Ends on: 25 June 2004, 04:21:00

CHAPTER 2 : Of Fiery Beginnings and Lonesome Ends

OR: Fiery Rebirth / Of Fiery Beginnings and Forlorn Ends / A fiery encounter?

Amid the crackling flames he woke; dimly remembering the clouded faces of the priests chanting around him. When they saw his dark green eyes break away from the heavy, sealing lids, a mass of orange robes involuntarily parted – much reminded him the early blooming of a sunflower. Soon the orange-red ranks closed in on him again, the monotonous chant ever thudding against the thick walls. Sometimes a chorus all clad in black robes with a mammoth, white sun painted above the chest joined the tedious hymn, lighting – if not making eerie -  the foreboding tune ever so slightly:

O’ha-reeeeh! Si-o’reeeyh!

Just when the black choir would hold onto that last syllable, a throng of red-hoods would break through, swirling and singing around the altar. In exactly every three steps they would dip their hands into an unsealed and seemingly endless supply of lorahough seeds beneath their robes and throw a handful into the air; each hooded figure moving as the one before him starts to retreat. Their voices cut through the murky tune, sparking with a low rumbling and slowly reaching a vibrant inferno towards the end. Midway through their sharp cries the dull hymn of the priests would be heard again. With the clerics’ chant fastened around them, the fireseeds would burst into bright white sparks when they touched the chains pinning the mystic to the obsidian altar. The glints would then incarnadine into a glowing ember and fade as they descended towards the floor.

Even amid the dazzling symphony taking place in the small chamber illuminated only by the dancing shadows a dozen torches cast at the walls, the resting mage could discern the clinging (ringing?) armor of the Mélár’áh-Khéin. He assumed the warriors had met the temple guards by now. “Fierce yet foolish,” the mystic thought; he had heard of the squad’s reputation but… human flesh was human flesh, and the mage had not seen any that did not sizzle under the scorching blades of the Guardian’s troops. The thought of burning flesh caught him off-guard and hurled his mind into a disturbed journey to a far-flung past.

It was not your fault. Or so the young mage had been told. “It’s not my fault. It’s not my fault. It’s not my fault…” he had been muttering all day long over the body lying next to him. The eyes, they were the worst part thus far. Blue eyes, once vivid and lighthearted, now dull and gray… Now that the life had been sucked out of them, they appeared… shallow… and… The mage sighed: empty. He looked over the body he had not allowed to be taken away for a proper burial rite, and then to his blood stained hands. If it had been on anyone elses’ ‘twould certainly have dried hours ago; but not on his. The khieh instinctively drawn by his body had kept the blood glistening still. And alive. Ironically that was all the mage, even a powerful one like he, could do. No mortal alone could battle against the clasp of death and win. Or so the teaching of Aniss said. But that was not for the ears of a man who had lost all faith in the words of others earlier that dreary day. Even against the tormented cries of Ksiárájh he had not yielded. “But…If not mine, it is of my arrogance and neglecting,” the mystic whispered, for it was all he could manage, to the hand, once vibrant and now sucked dry with the dusty stroke of death, enclosed tightly in his. All through the blazing day, he had clutched that white hand, that sick sight, and now that the sun had retreated to its castle far above and the night crept low over the lands, covering and soothing their pains with the thick blanket of blackness. The nocturnal scavengers were the last thing he worried when the cool night air sent a shiver down his spine. They would not dare to approach them, especially him in such a state.

He had cried to the Goddess. Over… and over… In thunder, lightning and bitter tears. She had not chosen to respond. With his prayers futile and offerings in vain all the mystic could do was watch the light soul soar towards a lonely journey.

The mage, with a pallid stare, looked at the young and dead man. Had he not died before Korinth got there, the mystic’s magic would be enough to save him. But reclaiming a man after he crossed the mountains of death was far beyond a mortal’s powers. If only… “If only I had returned in time…” No matter what the priestesses, all shining with the light of the Goddess blooming to the eyes of the mystic, had told him, they could not stop him from blaming himself for all that had happened on that grey day.

Hmm... I guess i should make that dancer bit less vague.

- When the Goddest shone brightest: It refers to a Nybelmarian deity - Goddess of the Grove, Rivers and Moonlight (under progress, see Nybel. forum)

- Will remove the modern phrases.

- The petals are the message he leaves to his family to tell them about his departure.

- the "whisps" refer to the mystical nybermar creatures (I think smith is working on them) that are thought to be somehow related to the santhrian "wisps" - mainly because of the way they look, that are used to help priestesses renew/heal large portions of devastated land.

I was a bit troubled to hear this artimidor... For I did my best to alter all the troublesome parts I could see... I really did... I'm sorry if it didn't turn out to be what you asked the last time...
