Mastery Magic

From Chronicles of Esshar
Jump to navigation Jump to search

These are rare, high level abilities that characters obtain by influencing the world and the people within it in a way that justifies a power boost. This is not intermediate magic (poison, bone, magma, sand, etc), which can be taught in-game or learned with consistent play. This tier of power has higher quality expectations and is seen as a reward for exceptional actions. This might mean a well written in-game journal, or an approved application in the ability section of the forums.

Characters with a hidden spell are less likely to progress beyond that point unless they show exceptional proactive storytelling.

They're said to be long-lived. Druids incorporate a form of bloodletting to provide sustenance to the good-natured spirits (known as wisps) in the area, willing them to act as aids. Blood is by far the most personal, magically dense substance a person has on hand, and that's why it is a common choice; it also shows that the druid is willing to sacrifice in return for the act.

Spectral Sight: Glowing spirit eyes. Makes spirits visible.
