My charcter uses shadowmancy as her magic and ive been looking around the site but apart from in the Kasumarii entry there isn't much else.
Can we intergrate it from other RPGs and books?

You can't integrate stuff into the RPG without it going through this board, and being uploaded to the site. In the case of spells, the best solution to that would be if you write the entry yourself and have it approved and uploaded, but there are two problems here:

1. What you're suggesting is not just a spell, but a whole new spell class. The elements, spell classes and systems have been here for some time, and I don't know if they can just be changed.

2. This sounds like it's not a very original idea, but is taken out of other RPG worlds and other fantasy books. In order for it to get approved on this site, it has to be significantly different from the stuff in other worlds, in order for it to be original.

Also, the name is a bit troubling. I like calling elemental magic 'something-mancy', but this is just wrong. Shadow is English, so Shadow Magic would be more appropriate. If you wanted 'mancy', you'd need to find the Latin or Greek (it's Greek actually, as it's Hydromancy rather than Aquamancy for water, but nobody will usually notice the difference) word for shadow. Don't ask me, I have no idea.

Shadowmancy is an established form of clerical magic.  Check the Kasumarii entry.  I think what she wants to know is whether she can make up spells or use those of other RPGs over at the role-playing board.

We're not really sure how Shadowmancy works yet, as no development has been done in this field, sorry.

It is akin to divine magic, so its spells would likely be more of an internal thing rather than a casting. Also, though, no mantras, prayer books, reagents, etc, as to use such things, especially mantras, isn't exactly the quietest thing to do. In the least, Shadowmancy would be an art made up of hand gestures to conjure the various workings of the shadows. Though the more advanced of course would have no need for such movements. :)

We're fine with people making up spells for use at the RPG board..... considering we don't and probably won't ever have complete spell listings. Just, try not to go overboard... the mods will hopefully tell you if what you're doing isn't allowed. Also, you can't steal the ideas of it from other RPGs or books, we try and keep things original here. There'd likely be similar spells, of course, but don't go flipping through a book, see something, and then put it word for word procedure for procedure into use. We don't like that. :)

I hope I'm being understood... I'm tired.

OKay.
Thanks Dasson. I wasn't going to copy spells excatly but was just going to use the bases.
And thanks for the information about how they are cast. I thought it was dont by chants.
Thanks again.
