[✓] [Magic Invention Lore] Arcane Relays

Recommended Posts

Arcane Relays

Communication is key for any project or collaboration, especially when it comes to dealings with the arcane. Many people have sought to find a way to communicate over long distances in order to stay in touch, record findings, and many other reasons. Thus, the arcane relay was designed, built to allow magi to keep in contact with each other across the event the greatest distances. 

 

Function

Arcane relays act as an advances method of communication, allowing descendant mages to contact each other no matter the distance. In order to communicate with another arcane relay, a sigil must be transcribed upon the focus crystal, more on that later.

When an arcane relay is used, it creates an image not unlike the one shown below, which allows the mage to see the other side and a few of its surroundings. Sound and color can pass through, though not physical matter. In simple terms, one can think of an Arcane Relay like a window to the other side. Flickers and ‘glitches’ in the image are not uncommon and sometimes sound can static as well. But for the most part, arcane relays transmit most things quite clearly.

Creation 

In order to create an arcane relay, one must build a base for which the focus crystal must sit atop in a secured fashion. Aurum bands must be made to spiral up and around the pillar, and into the focus crystal shaft. Three of these stands must be made in total, the center pillar allowing the relay to connect through the void to its designation, the other two allowing for the mage to see and hear the other side. 

The focus lenses and metal bands must be lined with focus crystal dust. Mana imbued chalk should be used to mark the positions of the bases on the ground as well, allowing the enchantments to flow between each of the pillars with ease. The focus crystal then must be marked with a certain sigil, allowing it to communicate with all the relays that have that same sigil.

It should also be noted that any minor displacement or crack in the focus crystal may cause the relay to explode violently, likely harming the mage if they attempt to use it. That is why precision is of utmost accuracy. 

 

 

Guidelines:

  • An arcane relay has three pillars; one for connecting through the void, one to store received images and sound, and one to project them for the mage to see and hear.
  • An arcane relay must be crafted with incredible precision in role-play, the failure of such causing an arcane explosion that may burn the mage.
  • Methods of crafting an arcane relay must be learned in-game from a person who knows and understands how to create one. This process will likely not be able to be transmitted in a single short lesson.
  • Creating the relay requires no feat itself, so long as the creator can establish some form of voidal connection

 

Redlines:

  • The sigils on the relay must match those of any relay a mage wishes to connect to. Think of it like a telephone number, except you’re only able to connect to the telephone with the same number as you.
  • In order to operate an arcane relay one must be a voidal mage or be able to maintain some form of voidal connection.
  • Requires three emotes to connect to the relay and then to connect your relay to the other relay destination. One can emote freely after this until they no longer wish to do so, without having to re-emote connecting the relay.
  • In order to send a message, both the recipient and under must be at an arcane relay at the time of the sent message.
  • Arcane relays cannot be moved around with ease, making it impossible to carry them around with you like paper for the old bird system.

OOC Explanation

While the bird communication system often does the trick, it is rather bland and boring, lacking the spice and roleplay flair so many dramatics wish for. Arcane relays, however, add a more unique method of communication than simply writing on a piece of paper and sending it via a bird. With arcane relays, it allows mages to communicate in a way that sets them apart from every other commoner with a quill and trained bird courier. I personally enjoy this kind of roleplay and I feel it would be a shame if we were left with only the bird communication system, which is why I did a rewrite.
