Some magic can be performed without any kind of chant. Chants can also be done in different languages but usually they are strongest in the native voice of the person using it. Also, chants aren’t always a set line of words that must be spoken. It’s a plea to invoke the energy you’re are trying to produce.
ah, i just bet this guy is an ageless entity like a vampire or something
Not an adventurer, but former boss or emergent magical NPC are both on the table.
Also that is one form-fitting robe he’s wearing.
And did you mean “Back lash” vs “Lash back”? The latter can work too but sounds a bit off.
“Lash Back” tends to refer to a physical lashing- a tearing or cutting. Which is very appropriate here. So Lash Back is more accurate.
You’re not yourself when you’re hungry
The hunger line honestly makes more sense when ya learn more but it won’t be for a while that more is learned XD
Someone get him a Snickers.
*magically summons a rain of mini Snickers*
I need this spell.
In Shadowrun there is a spell where you can multiply food.
Interesting arc, love where you are taking this. I thought there was something off about that ‘Archmage’. Hope that Callum can cope with whatever that ‘thing’ is until the girls show up. Looking forward to the reveal.
It looks sort of like lightning, but the spell’s called Lighting Scar? Is it more like a cauterizing laser then?
It is supposed to be Lightning! Thank you! It has been fixed. “Now behold my ultimate technique… Perfect lighting for you filming needs.”
Hmm…some RPG systems have monsters with abilities that leech your levels away. In a situation like this, that would result in someone who knows enough of the ‘game’ mechanics to target the ‘better meals’. Is that the situation here?
Alternatively, it may be that they’re using the word in different senses. To Callum, the word “experience” is most familiar in the sense of a game mechanic, a numerical value tracking your progress towards new character levels. But it’s surprisingly easy to forget (*glares meaningfully at KoTOR2*) that that numerical value is just a shorthand representation of the more abstract concept of learning from and adapting to new challenges; learning from your life experiences. Hence the term. Experience points are used to standardize and quantify the value of the events your character experienced.
“How much experience has a child acquired” might well be referring to the latter usage. “What have you been through that has made you so knowledgeable”, as it were.
Has a lot to do with how Callum heard the word and how the foe didn’t react to his surprise or the way he called it EXP rather than just calling it experience. If it was something new to him or odd, he would have reacted unless he has a good “poker face”.
I think that should be “lightning scar”. (Now who do we know that has one of those already?!)
Fixed! Thanks for catching that!
hum,, bad guy pulled component from sleeve , before casting… so hit him right when hand is in sleeve…
So magic follows some of the basics from Dresden?
