Yes...:o    I know this is a whole year over due but as they always say "better late than never" ^^


A power and ability that can be both a blessing and a curse if not used with the proper intentions. It is a strange power that should not be taken lightly for it can drastically change one's life with on single spoken word or an appropriately written tune, sung or played. Person's who are trained to have this pwer are specially choosen, for the power complicated and dangerous if not used with disgretion, for it is not only other's lives they can alter, their own is just as easy to make better or destroy. The voice is a very powerful instrument, so wisdom and knowledge is needed greatly for this ability to be expanded to the heights that it can be taken.

Before one can become a Namer, they are taught music and about the power it has to manipulate the world about them, if they discover the magic hidden deep with the heart of a musicians lore. Using their voice in song to heal, to destroy, and alter in some form or another. It is in this part of their training they learn how to put certain words together in song to create the desired result. From there, composing music with the words. The notes must be exactly right or the ending result will not be what the Singer had hoped for. A minor tune will have the opposite affect of which a major tune would have.

In music, there are seven notes in a scale. Listed from one to seven are:
~Lisele - ut
~Frith - re
~Merte - mi
~Kuih - la
~Brige - sol
~Luesa - ela
~Grei - ti
With those seven notes, any tune can be composed and backed with harmony. Every creature and object gives off their own song that can be harmonized with other's if properly conjoined. Sometimes, it may take a slight alteration in the song to accomplish the task. To heal a living creature or plant, slightly altering their own song to strengthen them and to spend up the self-healing process.This is done by playing their song yet altering one note, either higher or lower. It might also be adding or removing a note from the song, In strange cases, a new song may need to be written to perhaps heal something that is severely damaged or someone that is desperately ill or injured. Harmonizing the new song with the old will cause them to blend and work together to bring all the shattered pieces back to the way they should be.

Every Singer has a note in the scale that their body claims as their own. This note, when blended in harmony with the world, allows that Singer to be able to do many things. E.g. - If he/she were sitting in the field of tall grass, they could harmonize their note with the grass' song and in that unification, she would be seen as the tall grass to any passerby. Their body will feel ligyht and airy for the winde will pass through them, just it would with tall grass. They will move with the breeze just as the grass around them would. This ability is often a defensive move and wuold be used in no other instance. Another way their note is useful to them is when they wish to learn more about something. This can be defined for direction or general information. Also to know what something have have experienced to make it the way it is today. Usually, complete concentration is needed for them to perform this manuever and at times, interruptions can cause disaster, depending on what they were trying to accomplish.

That is all I have for now...more will be coming shortly *crosses fingers* if my brain decides to work with me...

Hmm... Iunno if such extreme effects could be achieved unless the song was a long one, hours long to preform I suppose.  It seems like some really powerful magic, but it looks like it could be fun!

I'd suggest integrating it with a culture or something.  For it to be so structured, the tradition would probably have been in existance for quite a while.  Maybe you could include some information about the people who practice it.  Right now it seems...well, I'm not sure how to put it, but it feels a little odd.  

I'm tired and I don't know if what I said made any sense, but, yeah, that's all I have to say for now.

Like I told you Mina...it is complicated and not normal, that is why it is so difficult to describe. :P

Nah, just joking Kal, in case you didn't notice ;)  

Was talking to Art just the other week about what happened to the namers entry. As for culture and people, and perhaps some suggestions and new ideas please find me either on MSN or IRC. I really need to talk to you. Glad the topic is brought up at last.

Take care

:D

Well, as has already been mentioned, currently what we have lacks a bit organisation. You should consider putting it all in various sections, Kalia, where you deal with different aspects of this kind of "magic". It would also need a place and a tribe, yup.

I could for example imagine this kind of magic at an Aeruillin tribe, as it is a bit exotic, and we don't have any magic yet down there south.

From the Ximaxian point of view this would still be interpreted as magic focussed on spell formulas, where the formulas themselves also are identical with the effect (unlike at Ximaxian formulas which simply serve as tools to prepare the caster's mind, but can be omitted when you're good). So I see this entirely possible from a "scientific" point of view of the Magical Academy.

The idea basically needs better organistation and more details (Origins, Background, Tribe etc.), then I guess this could turn out pretty interesting.

I think it doesn't necessarily have to be a tribe, just a group of some kind.  It could be a deviant sect of one of the major religions, or maybe a rather loose organisation like the druids, or something else altogether.  A tribe might not be very practical, because it'd probably be difficult to integrate it with an existing tribe, and creating a new tribe might be too troublesome.

Why not have an organization of namers similar to the druids?  Also, I think this magic should be wild and untamed.  The results should be unpredictable because of tiny uncontrollable changes in their voices.  The magic could be about as unprecise and unpredictable as clerical magics.  Just an idea.

Kali, I'd love to help you with the spells! ^^

My entry, as I have said, not finished by a long shot and I am positive a lot of aspects will be covered once I finish the entry...it is just so difficult to put into words...GAH! *brain turns to mush from trying to think too hard*

And Kik...there are no spells with Naming...this is completely outside of the Ximaxian box...just to let you know :hug  Music in itself is wild and untamed, you can do anything with it, that is what makes this so unique.

Yes, that's a good idea, Kalina, maybe we could integrate it somehow into clerical magic - not attached to a specific god, but to any of them. So maybe a cleric of nehtor could heal with his songs, a Grothar adept could sing till it rains, an Arvins cleric could be an orpheus - no, that doesn't fit ;)

But it is your idea - just get going again!

I don't like the idea of naming being associated with clerical magic. It seems like that would just make naming another way of casting clerical magic. This is a unique entry, and that suggestion might make it less unique. But as Talia said, this is Kalina's entry and any decisions are hers to make.

Kali intended it to be druidic, I think.  Of course, this means we need to finish up druidic magic before work on this can continue...
