  1. This is great lore in my opinion! It’s an interesting creature, and not just like most depictions of sprites in popular media (see: Tinkerbell). Unless of course I’m mixing up the meanings of the word. Sprites, Faeries, Pixies, etc. Not sure what the actual difference is between them generally speaking. I like that they have interesting abilities and uses, have a built in escape mechanism (basically skin-farting teargas lmao), and most importantly they have a PURPOSE. The basic idea of the “Redemption” mentality they all have is a great basepoint to encourage development in roleplay!
  2. This sounds super neat. Correct me if I’m misunderstanding this but basically; These make it so you can do fire hands and stuff like that? How far does that extend? Can you completely self immolate yourself in this example? Or is it not a total immunity, but rather a resistance to your own magic? So, say you could hold “fire hands” for a while without burning your hands, but it eventually reaches a tipping point where the pain is too great to maintain focus? Sort of like slowly lowering your hand towards a hot candle flame or a burner, or slowly turning up the temperature of the water during a
  3. Judging by the comments so far this might be a hot take and a controversial opinion but here goes nothing. No.
  4. I literally preach this **** all the time haha
  5. I don’t have too many problems with this. My only concern is that the lore team will not like the lack of spells (which I hope the realize is a huge task to undertake if we need to further break down the abilities of illusion and thusly restrict it further than it already is.) One thing I’d like to see added if possible is a certain idea/ability I had that was purely for fluff and fun purposes called “Hypnotists Boon”, as much of what I was writing involved a lot of comparisons to mundane hypnotism. Basically, while in a NON COMBAT environment/situation as well as whi
  6. I wish I could have been more help or actually finish my rewrite but I suck so... I'll read this when I've got a break at work or after work and give my input but skimming so far looks good. ?
  7. Okay awesome fantastic wonderful splendid. So now voidal mages have to basically flail their arms in the air, glow as a rule, and might as well be shouting “I’M CASTING FIRE MAGIC AT YOU GET READY!” While also being weak as noodles While also being unable to hold a weapon while connected!? In a server where I’m pretty sure people insist the rule is it takes a whole ass emote to draw a sword, but also takes a single emote to run 10 ******* blocks in an environment where fights are generally 20 blocks distance if the mage is lucky? I’m not throwing s
  8. Lotha, a very cute ginger dark elf of 4 feet in height crumpled up one of these fliers and threw it in a fire place in a huff, and then a cackle. "what a joke! Everyone knows the best women are the shortest women with the fattest a-" she stopped abruptly as she remembered the specifics. "why such a specific height requirement." she cackled again. "ahaha... What a catch." she remarked with only a single drop of sarcasm the size of which could easily fill a vast ocean.
  9. Lotha started to read the letter she received – as an Ascended – and slowly drooped as she read it with shaking hands. Her posture, her expression, even her comically large ears – they all drooped and sagged. Lotha hadn’t really known Elvira too well, but she was a friend for certain. And perhaps...potentially worst of all...the thing Lotha pestered Elvira about on occasion...that delicious beverage...would be lost forev-hold on... Lotha turned the page over and saw on the other side...the recipe...the coveted...delicious mocha recipe...IT LIVED ON! Lotha squealed with
  10. Telanir, I really don’t like your wishy washy explanation for the staff downsizing. I don’t believe for a single second that you “miscommunicated” the concept. You would have seen the complaints and concerns and addressed them immediately if your intention was contrary to what the belief was. Instead – as you said yourself - you played into it. Don’t apologize for the wrong mistake. Own up to it. If it really was as you say then you dropped the ball – and the ball was made of dwarf star stuff. Which means either you are incompetent, or lazy, or do not listen to your subordinates a
  11. Yes, of course, but like any lore it’s all supposed to be part of a narrative. Being able to throw people around or choke them out with your mind doesn’t need to be over powered nor un-fun. Ways to balance it: Someone else tries to pull the person being choked down from their place in the air, or if on the ground they could shove or pull them harshly out of place. This triggers some kind of roll for an attempt to break the choke. Throw a good fist sized rock at the guy who’s force choking your buddy. Or run up to them and punch them in the face. Oh here’s a really easy one
  12. I feel like those aren’t even remotely related. First of all, you can just telekinetically throw objects and/or enchant an object to telekinetically throw objects at speed. Ye don’t need lore for a fookin railgun. Just don’t make it look like technomagic and ain't nobody batting an eye. As long as it follows telekinetic and enchanting lore/rules anyway. Second of all, force choking can easily be balanced. Even if doing the force choke itself isn’t that “hard” for the mage, there can be many built in ways to break this. Basically make I t like a mage hand, but invisible. The person can
  13. So what? It’s always been that way and it’s always been stupid and felt unmagical.
  14. No. Enough of this nonsense. “Can’t manipulate inorganic-“ screw off with that. Dumb. Make. Force. Chokes. A. Thing.
