Air Mage Spells

Postby Farvel on Sat Sep 09, 2017 3:17 pm

So, a few questions about Air Mage spells, as the descriptions are somewhat ambiguous:

Dust Devil:
:MECHANICS: Standard ranmagatk is made to determine success of spell, though any damage dealt is halved. If fighting multiple opponents, the Dust Devil will 'bounce' from enemy to enemy, for as many times as Air Mage has been selected. The initial ranmagatk roll applies to each bounce, with each enemy defending against it. Though the bounce effect does not come into play in one on one combat, it .can- hit the same enemy twice, just not in a row. I.E if Tickles and Tripod the Goblins attack Joe the Air Mage x 5, and Joe then casts Dust Devil on Tickles, the spell will bounce between the two of them up to 5 times, resulting in up to five def rolls.

So if you're an Air Mage x1, does this mean you can hit only one target with it, or that it bounces once, thus hitting two targets?
Because the part quoted in red seems to imply the first (bounce between opponents as many times as you have Air Mage), whereas the example provided seems to imply the latter (5 defense rolls at Air Mage x5, rather than 6 defense rolls if the spell bounced 5 times between opponents).

Lung Crusher:
:MECHANICS: This is a typical !ranmagatk vs !ranmagdef. If the opponent loses the roll, he is left gasping or clawing for breath, taking normal damage in addition to losing 1% to atk rolls for each slot in the spell. This spell will last for one round for every time the Air Mage class has been taken.

Does this mean the opponent both takes normal damage and loses 1% to attack rolls for 5 rounds at Air Mage x5, or is damage taken on the first round, and only the 1% attack penalty lasts for 5 rounds?

1)It bounces five times. The first hit isn't a bounce.

2)You take damage once. The debuff lasts for 5 rounds
