Battle Spells


Aura Spear:
Level required: 30
Class required: Magi
Race required: Magi

Casting method: ranmagatk
Defending method: ranmagdef

Description: Level: Magi x7 ::

A lesser known cousin to the Energy Slap spell, and far more lethal, Aura Spear is rarely learned outside of the Ruby Temple. Like energy slap, the magi concentrates their aura about their hand but instead of delivering it via a blunt blow, they condense it even further and then shoot it out like a lance towards a target. Incredibly accurate, the spear has been known to, and is used to target the vitals of its intended target. The sheer destructive force put into such a small point renders armor virtually useless and even defensive spells have a limited effect on its path. The downside to such a spell is that it leaves the magi temporarily incapable of casting as their aura retracts back towards their body.

MECHANICS:: This spell functions as a normal ranmagatk, costing 10 + slots stamina to cast, but ignores all defensive modifiers. Damage is calculated as normal. The turn following the casting of this spell though, whether it hits or not, the magi may not cast any sort of spell or evade for stamina.



Aurora:
Class required: Magi
Race required: Magi

Casting method: clomagatk
Defending method: clomagdef

Description: Level: Magi X1 ::

Close combat will always occur; some drunk at the bar doesn't like you staring at his Vixen and will throw a punch. Most oft, despite the Magis inherent flow of agility, those wings come at a disadvantage within close quarters and over the centuries the Magi have found a way to help cushion the blow and get the time they need to back away from their enemy. Drawing their wings in a snapping fashion forwards, the sound is like the crack of a whip and fashions a pocket of air in front of them as words of their spell quickly drip from their lips. It won't always stop that fist flying at them, but it will cushion the worse of the blow. Effective indeed when there's nowhere to fly.

MECHANICS:: This only takes one round to cast and come into effect and lasts 1 round per slots put into the spell. The wings snap forward to send air curling in front of them like a sharp breeze, spell is vocally spoken and the very air they stirred will act as a cushion to the blow. At times completely absorbing any physical action made against them to as well saving the Magi from most of the damage.
For every 1 point put into the spell the Magis shield can absorb 1 point of damage done. ::

(EXAMPLE:) Bob the barbarian draws his sword and slashes at Marge the Magi. Marge throws up Shield of the winds. Both go to dice, a typical !clophyatk vs !clophydef roll is made. Bob the barbarian rolls 20, Marge the Magi rolls 15, but she put six slots into her spell. Her defense roll would have gained her five damage, but her shield saved her by six points so no damage is had. Next Round, Bob the Barbarian smacks at her again, this time his roll is 25. Marge the Magi rolls her defense and only gets 12. With her six slots into the spell she absorbed six points of that damage and will take the other six points damage.



Beglordios Breath:
Level required: 25
Class required: Magi
Race required: Magi

Casting method: clomagatk
Defending method: clomagdef

Description: Level: Magi X4 ::

Once long ago, they spoke of Beglordios, a reknowned Magi once said to sit closests to the Sun. Had he? There were few witnesses to the event, legend has it that he delved oft in the arts of the water mages but could never quite duplicate their abilities. Frustration reigned until he'd burst from a nearby lake and soared to high into the sun, spitting out his hatred of those he wished to most be like. And in his rage, a torrent of words spat outwards. It is said that Morpheus heard him and turned the waters upon his flesh to hot steam as he soared higher and higher and those watching swore that he touched upon the flaming star above and that hot rending steam... would be his end. Did he accomplish in death what he could not while living? Those that watched duplicated as close as they could, gathering the energy of the harsh rays of the sun and the water around them. Steam soaring upwards and outwards to sear at flesh and eyes.

MECHANICS:: This spell costs an immediate 5 + 1 stamina per slot invested and takes 2 turns to cast, being released at the start of the caster#039;s third attack phase. Should the casting be interrupted by a failed defense roll, the spell fails. Should the spell be cast successfully, then the spell affects an area around the Magi of three feet per slot invested in the spell, to a maximum of 45 feet. All within that area must make a Ranged Magic Defense roll, failure to defend against the spell not only takes damage as normal, but are also blinded (-30% to close attack and all defense rolls and -100% to ranged attack rolls) for 1d5 rounds. This is not a Fire or a Water spell, so no modifiers for elemental mages apply to this attack.



Deceptive Winds:
Level required: 15
Class required: Magi
Race required: Magi

Casting method: ranmagatk
Defending method: ranmagdef

Description: Level: Magi X4 ::

The wings upon this feathered race are not just for beauty but for flight as well. The Magi however have learned to utilize these lovely delicacies of nature within the very spells they weave and some are quite dangerous indeed. With their spell leaving the lips of the Magi, the wings upon these curious creatures begin to glow as they beat first very slowly and then faster, harsher as the spell is slowly set free. Winds can suddenly be heard howling, energy gathered from the air around them and then sent hurtling towards their opponent fast as a gale force. The pressure can and has not only knocked down a stalwart warrior but blown them some feet from the Casters powerful spell.

MECHANICS:: A standard !ranmagatk is made, damage dealt determined by a standard !damage roll. If the spell strikes successfully, the caster has the option of continuing the high pressure assault. At the cost of 8 additional stamina, a second !ranmagatk vs. !ranmagdef is rolled that same round. If this second roll is successful, the victim is blown back by the spell and neither the magi nor the victim may make close ranged attacks for their following attack phases. This spell counts as an Air spell for the purpose of damage modifiers and those who are resistant to Air damage cannot be blown back by the spell.



Energy Slap:
Race required: Magi

Casting method: clomagatk
Defending method: clomagdef

Description: Level: Magi X1

It's not unknown for the Magi to be quick in a battle situation. Their very nature seems almost restless at times and tends to make them edgy enough to be more then self-aware of their surroundings. As such, they are also quick spell slingers when the need arises. Gathering the energy around them, the Magi can reform it, shape it into a glove like shape about his slender fingers and then reach out to slap his opposition and leave them shaken upon the floor.

:MECHANICS: The Magi needs only to call out the words of this spell, energy builds and forms about the hand of the caster. This is a typical !clomagatk vs !clomagdef that takes the opponents armour into account. The damage is a normal !damage roll, plus 1 extra point of raw energy damage for every five slots put into this spell to a maximum of + 3 damage at 15 slots



Fantasy:
Class required: Magi
Race required: Magi

Casting method: ranmagatk
Defending method: ranmagdef

Description: Level: Magi X1 ::

Powerful thoughts and emotions are often as open to the perception of a Magi as the auras of great casters, and though the Magi do not always know what to make of the strong feelings of others, they can often bend and manipulate these potent emotions as deftly as any other magical force. Though this process is hardly a window into the souls of those around them, it can be used to turn a foe or threat's own thoughts against them. With hypnotic, fluid motions of their wings, the Magi tries to fool the victim's mind into projecting an arresting fantasy in the Magi's place. An old lover returned beautiful as ever, a family member once dead or forsaken, a great foe come cackling; the Magi does not choose the image, they simply drive the magics which compel the victim to do so; the Fantasy the victim chooses, whether it be beautiful or horrible, always that which is most likely to halt them in their tracks.

Mechanics: A ranmagatk vs ranmagdef determines success, and if it hits, the target is stunned for 1 round per 3 slots put into the spell. Regardless of how much the spell penetrates, it causes the victim no damage to their LIFE at all. While Stunned, the victim may not commit any offensive actions, but may still defend as normal, including if they wish to activate defensive spells, evade or stumble away. The effects of the spell on the victim are immediately broken if they are subject to any form of attack - magical or physical.



Feathered Bow:
Level required: 10
Class required: Magi
Race required: Magi

Casting method: ranmagatk
Defending method: ranmagdef

Description: Level: Magi X3 ::

Most Magi tend to avoid the more martial forms of combat, largely due to the unwieldy nature of the weapons involved. There is however some great admiration among them for the art of archery, the precision of it appealing to their calculating nature. The Feathered Bow spell was developed initially with sport in mind, a way for all adult Magi to participate in the game of bowmanship. Raising one wing behind them into an almost vertical posture, an incantation is uttered to draw their aura taut as a bowstring around it. their hands mimic the motions of an actual bow being drawn, the length of their seemingly mimed draw corresponding with a building glow in that raised wing, until release sends a feather-like bolt launching from it at an arrows pace, traveling on the air in just the way a physical arrow would. If the Magi's wings are in their aura-form, their energy can actually be condensed into the form of a bow in the magi's grip.

MECHANICS:: This spell takes a single turn to activate at standard cost per slots. In the following round, and for as many rounds as slots are invested, the Magi will be able to use the Feather Bow like any other ranged weapon, with a standard !ranphysatk vs. !ranphysdef, at a cost of 1 stamina per shot. The attack modifier of the bow is equal to half the slots invested, to a max of +8 at 15 slots. Though rolled as a physical attack, physical armor mods do not apply to defense, nor does the physical armor spell. Only magical defense/magic armor spells obstruct these attacks. The Magi cannot fly while this spell is active.



Mystic's Trance:
Level required: 10
Class required: Magi
Race required: Magi

Casting method: ranmagatk
Defending method: ranmagdef

Description: Level: Magi X1 ::

The Magi are an established winged predator in some fashion, their diving abilities quick and clean, their utter grace within the air told by fairies as tall tales, but are they? The Magi themselves are a flawless creature when a-wing and they have learned and created a spell that helps them pick up speed to not only avoid an aerial combatant but as well, some say, that it attracts other Magi's of the opposite sex. Its alluring motions and sudden agile moves impress upon ones mind, catch the eye and hold it for brief periods of time. It can be used for distraction or simply outmaneuvering their enemy to actually holding someone motionless for a few moments in time in clear awe of what they see.::

MECHANICS:: The Magi trying to avoid an enemy attack, aerial or one upon the ground, casts this quick clean spell using a typical !ranmagatk roll. Their opponent rolls a !ranmagdef, not because he is avoiding this spell, for it is only cast upon the user themself, but to see if the Magi has enough time to actually cast while flying. If the Magi roll higher than his opponent he may add a +1 to his or her agility for every 3 slots put into this spell and it will last the duration of the scene. This costs an immediate 4 stamina. If used out of combat, the Magi must only cast his spell, typical !ranmagatk vs. !ranmagdef, if the opponent fails, their eye follows the sudden graceful aerial-batics of the Magi for one turn per 2 slots put into the spell and seem unable to break that eye contact upon the Magi until such time has been served. This as well will cost the Magi an immediate 4 stamina.



Nebula:
Class required: Magi
Race required: Magi

Casting method: other
Defending method: none

Description: The second of the Magi's most commonly used defensive spells is known as Nebula. Utilizing their aura the magi creates a very slight, hazy illusion about their form. As they move their body blurs, leaving behind a hazy afterimage. The closer someone comes to the Magi, the harder it is to tell precisely where they are. At range the effect is so minimal that it is entirely ineffective.

MECHANICS: This spell only takes one round to cast and lasts for one turn for every slot put into it. The spell costs one stamina for every slot put into the spell used. The caster gains +1 defense against close physical and close magical attacks for every slot put into this spell. This spell may stack with Aurora and any regular defensive enchantments.



Rainbow Wings:
Level required: 5
Class required: Magi
Race required: Magi

Casting method: ranmagatk
Defending method: ranmagdef

Description: A Magi's wings can at times prove a liability, being a perfect target for grasping hands, swinging blades or flying flames when in their physical form. This spell is one most all Magi will find themselves developing early in their path through life, turning that same liability into a considerable advantage. Through this incantation their feathered wings take on an almost crystalline transparency, through which the faintest glimmer of light is cast into brilliant rainbow colors. Though appearing delicate in this state, their wings are rendered capable of absorbing a potentially extreme impact, or of being used to deal a deadly blow. With wings in their astral form, that crystalline glow of rainbow-lights can envelop the caster entirely.

MECHANICS:: This spell takes a single attack round to cast, at standard stamina costs. Once active, the very first successful attack made against the caster will have any direct damage it deals absorbed, by up to half the number of slots invested. I.E at 15 slots, up to 8 damage will be blocked from reaching the caster. In addition the caster may chose to make a standard !clophyatk with their wings while the spell is still active, which ignores all physical armor/physical armor spells, only obstructed by magical defense enchantments/spells. Attack mod of this strike is equal to half of slots invested, to a max of 8. The moment the spell is used once, either to block damage or as an attack, it comes to an end. The spell will persist a maximum of 3 rounds after casting before it will fade if unused, and cannot be used again for 3 full rounds after its used or it fades.



Silenced Echo:
Level required: 15
Class required: Magi
Race required: Magi

Casting method: ranmagatk
Defending method: ranmagdef

Description: Level: Magi X4 ::

The Magi have learned to harness and manipulate pure, raw energy. They can hone it, building it to be a force to reckon with. It starts out as a low buzzing that echoes within their mind, an irritating distraction at the least to those with normal hearing and gradually rolls, amplifying into a mind numbing shrill for those with sensitive ears, making it near to impossible to focus and/or fight. It is not an easy task and takes skill and great concentration, rewarding the wielder a way to manipulate the very air we breath and using it against their enemy.

MECHANICS:: Two rounds to cast. If the Magi is damaged before the second round, then the spell fails. Stamina cost 1 + 1 extra per slot used. If successful, the spell effects an area around the caster within three feet per slot used to a maximum of forty-five feet. All within that area must make a !ranmagdef roll. If roll fails: victim receives half damage, but also deafens (-25% to defense rolls) for one round per three slots used. Chirots take full damage. Those who are successful in their defense are unaffected.



Squeezing Sortilege:
Level required: 20
Class required: Magi
Race required: Magi

Casting method: ranmagatk
Defending method: ranmagdef

Description: Magi x5

The Magi makes an arcane gesture and channels a streak of magical force at their opponent. The magic would then wrap around their victim, visible perhaps to those attuned to sorcery and definitely to other Magi. The magic would then tighten around their victim like a sorcerous serpent, slowly trying to squeeze the life out of the person. The force would be enough to inhibit movement partially, as well as inflict physical, crushing damage to their victim.

Mechanics: The Magi rolls a standard !ranmagatk against their victim#039;s !ranmagdef. If the Magi wins the roll then the target becomes wrapped by the magi's energies for 1 turn per 3 slots put into the spell rounding down. Each turn following the magi's attack phase (including the round the Magi casts the spell) the victim takes 3 damage as long as the spell is in effect. In addition to this, their mobility is reduced by the spell, causing them to suffer -50% to attack and defense for as long as the spell is in effect. This spell does not inflict crushing damage on the victim's actual items, only their body. This spell may only be used successfully on a target once per combat scene. For a very large creature, like a dragon, a few Magi can each use the spell on a specific body part.



Tether of the Stars:
Level required: 15
Class required: Magi
Race required: Magi

Casting method: ranmagatk
Defending method: ranmagdef

Description: Level: Magi X1 ::

When one is as light, as a feather. When one is all wings, graceful nature but trying to show that beneath that downy exterior lays the heart of a creature wily and strong. Such things are very hard to express when the next door neighbor is a Troll and finds you, the lightweight, an easy target to show off the muscles to his kitten lady friends. It seems the Magi have learned a trick or two of escaping a tight or sticky situation. By combining Earth and Water into a more compact but less destructive effect, the Magi casts his spell and coats his opponent with a mess of mud slickened goo to slow them down and escape a harsher bit of treatment.

MECHANICS:: This is a one turn cast spell and does require that the caster is near both earth and water, both hands freed to cast. One gestures to the earth, another to the water around him. The two elements are combined and shoot out towards the Magis opponent, covering them in slickened mud, making their opponent clumsy and striving to hold onto weapons and keep their feet. A typical !ranmagatk vs. !ranmagdef is rolled. If the Magi wins the roll, his opponent loses 1 to his agility per every two slots put into this spell. Giving the Magi a chance to either escape or blindside his opponent or simply use it as a distraction to whisk into the air. This costs 5 stamina immediately to the Magi Casting the spell and can only be cast twice a week.



Vortex of Sand:
Level required: 10
Race required: Magi

Casting method: clomagatk
Defending method: clomagdef

Description: The Magi are known for their magnificent showmanship and this treasure of a spell is no less spectacular! The way they can manipulate the very air and capture that energy to make it work in their favor by creating a vortex so violent that it can lash out against the victim in a whip-like fashion. As the funnel builds up, spinning round and round, it picks up the grains of sand, bits of debris and when that power has been harnessed to its full potential, it explodes toward the doomed victims.

:MECHANICS: This spell functions as a standard Ranged Magical attack for Magi x 3 costing 1 stamina per slot and counting armor modifiers for rolls. But upon reaching Magi x4 this spell begins to show its true potential. It takes 2 turns to cast the stronger version of this spell, the first to gather the energies and the second to release it and costs an immediate 1 stamina per slot invested. Any attack landed upon the magi while casting disrupts the spell. If uninterrupted, all targets must roll a Ranged Magical Defense against the Magi's Ranged Magical Attack. Although the attack is magical in origin, the effects are physical, and so Armor modifiers count against this attack. Upon releasing the spell the vortex zips out to strike at a number of targets dependent on the magi's level, losing a little energy the further it travels. Because of this the first targets hit by the spell bear the brunt of its effective force.

Magi X3 up to 1 target (@100% damage)
Magi X4 up to 2 targets (Target 1 @100% damage. Target 2 @75% damage)
Magi X5 up to 3 targets (Target 1 @125% damage. Target 2 @100% damage. Target 3 @75% damage)
Magi X6 up to 4 targets (Target 1 @125% damage. Target 2 @100% damage. Target 3 @ 75% damage. Target 4 @50% damage)
Magi x7 up to 5 targets (Target 1 @150% damage. Target 2 @125% damage. Target 3 @ 100% damage. Target 4 @75% damage. Target 5 @50%damage)





Out of Battle Spells


Aura Meld:
Class required: Magi
Race required: Magi

Casting method: other
Defending method: other

Description: Requirements: Magi X1

Description: The magi may be soldiers, but they are not designed for wars of attrition. If ever the call is made for violence the magi prefer to respond swiftly and with overwhelming force rather than to pit themselves against their foes in prolonged combat. Failing in that they shift to hit and run tactics rather than digging themselves in against a siege. Tactics like these have shaped the magi into a powerful, if fragile fighting force. Any losses they take on the field are usually minimal and Morpheous will resurrect the fallen back on Oceana. Still it isn't easy to remain mobile if weighed down with wounded, so the magi do have a spell that serves to stabilize the injured just enough to get them moving again if the need arises. The 'healer' shifts their aura into the injured magi's and using that connection as a channel transfers some of their own energies into the other magi, repairing enough damage to usually get them unsteadily back up on their feet if they were seriously injured or stabilize them if they were near death. The 'blunt' nature of this healing spell makes it dangerous to be used repeatedly on an injured magi. Too much excess energy channeled into them can cause life threatening side effects, especially in an already weakened state.

Mechanics: This spell can only be used on other Magi once a day/scene and heals 1 point of life for every time the casting magi has taken the Magi class (maxing out at 7 life). It costs the casting magi 5 stamina to use this spell and it can only be cast out of battle.



Eldritch Assistants:
Level required: 10
Class required: Magi
Race required: Magi

Casting method: none
Defending method: none

Description: Magi were never content to "leave well enough alone" when it came to sorcery. After all, it was their life and their love. At the same time, many of the Magi who worked within crafts found it was difficult to deal with many different items on their own. After all, one only has two hands. So, they created spells that gave them all the hands they needed... sort of. As a Magi grows in skill and sorcery, so to does their ability to control things around them as desired within a room or hall.

:Mechanics: This spell requires five stamina for every casting. Casting this spell, the Magi can control the movement of items around them. Much like Telekinesis, but the Magi can deal with heavier items, and to a finer degree of control. They cannot use this power to craft something, but they can move a statue around with it. When they hit Magi x3, their maximum is a 60 lbs, at a distance of thirty feet. At Magi x4, the maximum weight they can move is 100 lbs. Once they hit Magi x5, the distance they can control items increases to sixty feet, and that maximum goes to 160 lbs. At Magi x6, the Magi can move items in total of 260 lbs. And at the final level of Magi x7, their maximum distance goes to ninety feet away, and they can shift around items up to 420 lbs. This spell will be broken the moment combat is initiated, and cannot be used to create cover for someone. Please note, the spell cannot be used to imprison or detain a living creature. This spell also cannot be used to transport things across long or far distances.



The Visionary:
Level required: 2
Class required: Magi
Race required: Magi

Casting method: clomagatk
Defending method: clomagdef

Description: Level: Magi X1 ::

Whereas for most races language, body or otherwise, is the sole means of communication, Magi have long-since expanded their ability to trade thoughts and details out into the visual sphere. Projecting their own inner-eye out onto their wings, they can display any manner of image, be it vague memory, detailed imagining, or precise simulation, so long as it is within the Magi's knowledge and skill to project. Magi often seamlessly couple conversation with projections that help convey their thoughts, though sometimes hesitate to do so in the company of other races, so as not to overwhelm them. If a Magi's wings have taken on their aura form, the Magi can project the image outward a short distance, either against a wall or out into the air before or behind them, simulating three dimensions when looked upon head-on. The image still has distinct borders however, and will rarely to never be mistaken for reality. A Magi must endeavor not to get distracted while employing this spell, less embarrassing inner thoughts creep their way into view.

Mechanics: If the Magi is free to cast, they can use their words or gestures to project images onto their wings. The images are determined by the Magi, but must be within reason to their knowledge-base, all rules regarding information gleaned out-of-character strictly applying. If the Magi's wings are in aura-form, the image can be projected outward a maximum of three meters, in a 150 degree cone.



Wing Scry:
Level required: 5
Class required: Magi
Race required: Magi

Casting method: other
Defending method: none

Description: Level: Magi X2 ::

Magi take to magic as well as most races take to breathing, using it for all manner of tasks from chores, to communication, to combat. The frequent, and often casual, use of magic has given the magi a variety of unique spells and this is no exception. By fanning their wings forward and channeling their energies into them, a magi can create a scrying surface upon their own wings. A barely perceivable pulse of magic follows, seeking out the life force of the magi's target, rebounds back and shows the caster the image of the target and some of their surroundings. It is said that this spell was first invented by a jealous lover, convinced that their partner was bedding someone else. Whether or not that is true, the spell's use has evolved far beyond simple voyeurism.

MECHANICS:: This spell takes two turns to cast and is not meant to be used in battle, requiring the magi to sit or stand nearly still. The magi must first focus upon someone they know or at least, have met a few times. For every time the caster has taken the magi class they can see five feet of space surrounding the person they are focusing on (maxing at 35 feet at Magix7). The quality of picture is based off of how well the magi knows the target. A lover would return a crisp picture, a casual acquaintance would return something unfocused but somewhat decipherable. Because of the way the spell functions it cannot be used to scry specific places and will fail if their target is dead. The scryed individual cannot communicate with the magi nor see them, nor can the magi communicate with their target through this spell. OOC consent of the target is required to cast this spell, with the target determining what all the magi can see and how clearly. This spell does not function akin to the locator spell, just because the magi can see the general surroundings of the target does not automatically mean they know where they are.





Anywhere Spells


Bridge of Brightness:
Level required: 10
Class required: Magi
Race required: Magi

Casting method: other
Defending method: none

Description: Level: Magi X3 ::
There have been times in the past when a non-Magi has been asked to visit the floating island home of the Magi. Many a time the person has not been winged or does not know the Fly spell. The Magi felt sorrow for those who were pathetically ground-bound, and took pity on them. After all, the Magi feel all races who have honor and wisdom in their heart should have the chance to see the glory of Oceana. After the casting period of five turns, a glimmering bridge shimmers into being, glowing with all the hues of the rainbow. The bridge arcs from where the Magi took flight from to where their flying took them during the casting.

MECHANICS:: This is a general purpose spell now, used for more than having pedestrians walk to and from the floating isle of Oceana. During the five rounds of casting the Magi needs to take off and fly to where they wish the bridge to go to - which can be up to 200' away per time the Class is taken. (for example, Myseria the Magi at x5 can make a bridge 1000' long.) This costs the Magi 10 stamina. A total of 2 people per time the Class has been taken can cross the bridge before it fades away, flickering dangerously as it nears its limit. A magi X7 can create a bridge strong enough to support the passage of a single, fully loaded wagon. The caster can collapse or reinforce the bridge back to full strength for another 10 stamina. If the bridge is left standing, the next rising or setting of the sun (whichever comes first) will cause it to dissipate - regardless of who may be on it.



Invisibility:
Level required: 12
Race required: Magi

Casting method: other
Defending method: other

Description: Level: Magi X1
Energy is neither light nor dark and yet still it can be manipulated to fold over the Magi's wings and slim frame, covering him in a cloak of illusion that's hard to decipher or see through. By softly letting out his incantation and gathering as well as focusing the magic, the Magi covers himself in such dark energy, blending in with his surroundings and as long as the Magi doesn't move too fast, as in running, jumping or bumps into a heavier object such as a person to a table, he can walk slowly and remain unseen.

:MECHANICS: This is an OOB spell and yet the Magi is still susceptible to being caught. As long as someone that was sure they had seen the Magi before he 'vanished' they may cast a 'Detect Illusion'. Both Magi and opponent roll as per the Detect Illusion spell. If the Magi wins the roll he remains undetected, if he loses, his guise is only seen by the one casting the "Detect Illusion" spell and no other until the spell the magi casts wears off. The spell itself will last as many rounds as slots put into the spell. This however is not a shield; the Magi can still be damaged of course by the one that did detect him. Any fast motion and the Magi's cloak is dropped immediately.



Point Shift:
Level required: 40
Class required: Magi
Race required: Magi

Casting method: other
Defending method: other

Description: Requirements: Magi X7

The Magi are one and all born from magic, their flesh and blood weaved into existence from the aether by their Goddess. This unique connection they share with the arcane displays itself quite readily in their spells and seemingly innate understanding of its shifting currents, but this particular spell is perhaps the most dramatic display of that. The strongest of mages can use their energy to tear a hole in the fabric of reality, opening a portal that can lead to a destination. This spell is considered clumsy by the magi, the work of a hammer instead of the blade. The magi's solution to the problem of quick transport is faster and more accurate, though suffers in terms of how many things can be moved at once. Focusing their energies, the spell is started by expanding their aura outwards to envelope all they wish to transport. Once their spell is stable and their destination set, their aura solidifies in a flash of color and collapses inwards on itself. Guided by the magi's spell and will, this point of magi rapidly shifts to the destination the magi set and returns the magi and the enveloped items and passengers to the real world.

:MECHANICS: It takes 3 uninterrupted turns to cast this spell during which the Magi cannot attack nor defend and any successful attack on their person interrupts the spell. The stamina cost of the spell is dependent upon how many things are being moved along with the Magi. Living beings cost 20 stamina each, including the magi themselves. Non living things are far simpler in structure and purpose and thus can be transported with greater ease, but are limited in size to that of a carriage. Smaller items have a negligible stamina cost while a carriage, or near equivalent amount of material, adds an additional 30 stamina to the cost of the spell. The maximum range of the spell is 15 miles and the location must be a place either very well known to the magi or a place that they can directly observe while casting the spell.
