It would rot similar to any corpse - flesh falling off, skeletal structure appearing until at last it would become dust. Hence the two century limitation of the spell. A Fire Necromancer could do nothing to stop the abundance of fire ounia in it's car'all from slowly incinerating itself.

Just to answer a question of yours above, that I missed Azhira. The mage still has a free-will and could influence fires' animation property (physical/spiritual) to keep themselves mobile, not unlike previous Fire Necromantic incantations. As mentioned in the entry the spell Dark Stability is also a constant necessity to keep the mages' undead state filled with these 'fires of life'.

Since this alteration of the mage's car'all is unnatural it would seek to return to neutrality, albeit slowly. Requiring the mage to keep it in the heightened abundance of fire ounia expressing the 'fires of life', bringing the necessity of Dark Stability.

It is very much like being a lich. If you take a normal human that has obtained level 10 in Fire magic ... their normal life is probably near its end...... why would they turn down 200 years of extended (un)life?

Edit: The insanity and such are all possibilities not absolutes and since this is from a researchers point of view from legends ..... not all is known of what the outcomes could be. Not like there would be more than a handful of possible stories about Necromancers of this power.

Please ask questions if you have them Azhira .... running a refresher course here myself.

Finally! Glad to see this finished. As per your usual, only a few minor grammatical errors I really don't want to correct right now. I'll swing through later to give the edits. Much applause from me to you for your hard work.

I am not trying to give you a hard time, Emvay!  kiss I am just trying to understand the complexities of this fascinating spell. Thanks for the patience.  thumbup

No, I would not want to live in a world without dragons, as I would not want to live in a world without magic, for that is a world without mystery, and that is a world without faith. And that, I fear, for any reasoning, conscious being, would be the cruelest trick of all.

No problem Azhira! heart

I was merely being honest when I said 'I was running a refresher course'. Lots of studying up on old notes and ideas, questions help a great deal. They make me think and recall stuff that might be a little dusty in my brain. So if you got any, please speak up. :)

Speaking about dust, Emváy/Twen... I wonder what had happened to that fullsized portrait Faugar was drawing for you, and I've never seen a reply to the last version he posted.

Not too much I see that needs changing, Twen. Lovely spell. :)

First off, I think the Casting Procedure needs to be expanded a bit. You've got a lot of nice details in the Spell Effect, but the Procedure cuts short. You should describe the at least theorized methods of 'binding the fires of life' through Sphere III here.

Also, you mention that this is a Spiritual/Physical spell. I don't see any Physical aspects here, so I believe you can just make it Spiritual.

Last, as you say in another post, mages of other elements can help the mage retain more aspects of their 'self' than just the fire ones. This should be mentioned in the 'Enhancing/Counter Measures' section. In fact, the aid of a Wind mage might be necessary for the 'lichee' to retain any true form of sentience--though since all aspects of the spell aren't known, you may want to say only that it is theorized that it is highly likely a Wind mage's aid is necessary for retained sentience, but this is not known for sure.

Dearest Fox, enhancement measures have been modified and the physical under 'Spell Class' has been removed. Thank you for the comments!  heart

This has gathered dust for far too long.  rolleyes

I shall be polishing up many of my lingering entries and then moving on to other projects that are my responsibility.  goodidea

Wow, stuff's old in Santharia. Ciosa is more than six times older than Vienna and Paris.

Wow, miss a week; miss a lot.  Hi all.  I'm here.  Mostly on the RP side as that is where the action is, but more activity here would get me going again.  I have a few fresh (yes, anything worked on in 2015 is fresh) entries I'm doing.
01 November 2015, 06:18:26
Well that was a mistake. My development schedule is now in the Masterplan forum. That should probably be moved by someone at some point.
31 October 2015, 23:03:59
Hey Talia! It's great to see you back.

Shabas trick worked too ;) Hello all!

Well, Seagazer's method worked its magic on me, at any rate. :)
30 October 2015, 06:42:18
Okey dokey! I have two little Manthrian entries written up, one place and one historical person. More will be forthcoming, perhaps something to do with hobbits.
28 October 2015, 07:49:26
That's a good idea. But let's do a little prep first. Everyone is deserving of a warm welcome. We should get a few entires dusted off and finished for them to come home to. :)
