You may assume that clerical and elemental magic have nothing to do with each other. They're working on entirely different planes.

On the reagents I would appreciate somthing with a rudimentary system as you suggest, Rayne. It sounds like a pretty good idea.

What I wouldn't like is a copy from Ultima where certain plants are somehow needed for magic though you don't know why or cliches like from bad movies. Also important to me is that the power is still the mind of the caster and reagents are merely assissting him in something.

Your Styrásh idea is also worth a second look. An additional idea from me would be to maybe develop from the Styrásh letters a symbol/rune for every prefix or suffix.

You'll have to tell me if I copy and Ultima idea. I've never actually played it, so I won't know if I am or not.

Maybe we should be very selective about reagents? There are some animals that have parts that are more likely to be used in spells. Creatures like dragons and different types of mystical birds might have more suitable properties for magic than others.

As for the run idea, I think that's a good idea. It reminds me a lot of the asian languages. They have symbols representing an idea, then they attack them to each other to form different ideas. (Example would be Hikouki: the symbols mean fly, go, and machine. AKA, airplane) The only problem would be that unless we used some pre-made font and took symbols from there, they wouldn't be accessible on everyone's computer, we we'd still need actual suffixes and prefixes as well as perhaps some translation.

Clerical magic is hangin on Viresse... and she has been told (as we all have) to postpone it until the mgical revision. And that is (c) Xarl/dasson, if my memory serves me right. Is there things being done on the classes and such? And is it ONLY classes, or other things as well? This could be very intresting to sum up, as currently i personally feel that nothing is being done on that "magic revision", which have been hangin here for ages.
