I was looking at the fever of nightmares spell and realised it was the only one of its kind. I was thinking that it couild be an entire branch of magic called potionmaking (or something to that effect) with its own "spells". I didn't want to post on it, because I want to see if its OK first... Whaddyu think? Anyone?

Virus magic and potionmaking, yes, we need more spells there. Generally, yes, it is possible, and we do have soem potion makign spells, i think.

Potion making looks like a magic section almost by itself, certainly not limited to virus magic, even if it still exists.

You get all those basic potions which all experienced adventurers carry in their packs, you know the lot: Healing, Curing poison, Curing disease, Stopping bleeding, making more alert, for a mage maybe even something restoring car'all after extensive strain. Then there are poisons, sleeping potions, all that stuff. You can't really compress that into virus magic, can you?

Also, some of that stuff isn't made with spells: A healing potion may be nothing but a mixture of herbs that will ease pain and stop bleeding, which anyone could just brew up without knowing spells. Is that still magic?

One question (though it may sound stupid) doesn't potion making involve bonding (Xeua)? After all the so-called "spell" has to be integrated into the boiling herbs (otherwise it would just be a terribly smelling/tasting juice :rollin ) and it has to kinda 'stay' there? (otherwise, potions would have to be used up instantly)

I understand that it may have something to do with manipulating the car'all of the "potion", but how does a mage ensure that car'all stays in that fixed manner? (bonding?)

anway, just me being stupid and curious at the same time :b

Magic as a whole means to deal with Xeuá (links) in the one way ot the other, Coren. Xeuá magic makes these links directly, other kinds of magic like elemental magic force links to be established indirectly, e.g. by positioning the elements in a way so that the re-group around another central element (e.g. shifting from water to fie dominance). You may get more information in this respect when checking out the Schools of Magic or the recently uploaded Xeuá entry.

You know Aran, you are right...

If I wanted to do an entire section on potions and such, including, but not exclusive to virus magic, where would I post it?

Wherever I put it, it's gonna take alot of research, but I'm up for it...

Depends on what you find out. If it is mostly potions made WITH magic, then here. If it isn't, then perhaps miscellanious... Depends entirely what you find out during your research.
