Magic is not my thing anymore, but I was called to take a look here, so I can at least give my opinion from the distance:

Ban:
I personally have no problems with a member wanting to introduce a magic system if the environment and the concept fits and there are plans to go from there. This system seems to be planned to be embedded in a region, a culture, and Deci intends to properly develop it - as he has proven that he can do with all entries he made in the past. The proposal seems to have the basic things it needs (though it can still use some more explanation) and isn't so weird as to make it impossible to follow or contradict magic the way we understand it in Caelereth.

Concept:
I don't know that much about "chi" on which this concept is based on primarily, so an entry on Sanryu would be ideal before the magic based on Sanryu can be elaborated properly. But from what I gather Sanryu might be defined as an energy, that is neither physical nor something spiritual as opposed to the physical stuff - maybe it is the link between body and spirit that for people practicing this kind of magic is located in the blood. I'm just trying a definition here as I didn't read it that clearly in the proposal. So this is the impression I got. Maybe the term "energy" could be avoided as well, the function of Sanryu would then be something like connecting, balancing, something like that. Just thinking aloud.

The way you describe the using of that energy in various bodily function is interesting - and indeed it reminds of that Exasthri concept of Theo from ages past. At Theo's concept it was more a form of martial arts and nothing else, so I don't know where you want to put your emphasis.

But there are lots of possibilities. You know, it could even be of interest for example in the erotic field - the techniques could serve as viagra substitutes... lol So maybe Sanriers also are better lovers?  grin - At any rate: It looks as if Sanryu magic can have many uses while it could be limited to special practices and applications. Looks like a really good idea to me.

Side note on elven magic:
As that topic has been brought up recently: Elven magic could be "universal Sanryu" if you want to call it that way. The Sanryu mages are focussed completely on blood obviously (see definition I tried to give above), while elves feel these energies everywhere, also in plants and stones to a degree for example and can thus reach out further and share or use such energies better - if they understand nature or try to understand it better, this will increase their capabilities. So there would be basic similarities between elven and Sanryu magic, with a completely different emphasis, though. But this is just a rough footnote.

So you would like an entry on Sanryu itself...That sounds workable...Could I post a rough draft soon to see what you think?

Its actually funny you mention martial arts- since I did plan for a Martial Art involving Sanryu manipulation based on certain points on the body. Would this be okay?

Regardless...Its nice to know I have your approval Artimidor...

Well, if there are no major issues regarding the concept - seems it is generally accepted, details are of course always to be debated. But getting the rough basic details done on the Sanryu sounds like a good idea to me.

His nybelmarian (sp?) magic write up or something. I should be somewhere on these boards. I figured it was brought up then it should be brought up now too. But since none seem to have objections... :D
