This post will be a copy of the previous, with some minor adjustments:

"It's time for Spheres of Aether! I've compiled a new list of powers which I hope shows improvements to the usual list, but should at least be worth discussing. It will begin in the next post. For those who want the "usual list" to compare to, it's here:
http://pastebin.com/bQBscJxi

The file is mechanics, but it's neither complete nor up to date so take it with a grain of salt."

Lightning element master race reporting in

>> No.22246032

>Element
This sphere holds the power of the fundamental elements. Earth, wind, water and fire are the traditional ones, but lightning - and electromagnetism - is also popular. These mages can manipulate their element in its purest form, and more powerful elementalists can even manipulate impure forms, though those stemming from life are beyond an elementalist's reach. An elementalist (sometimes called an evoker) can focus on one element or can benefit from many, but those who focus on one are far more powerful under its purview than are generalists in any. As they grow in power, many elementalists acquire physical traits associated with their elements. Fire can grant one a body heat strong enough to melt metal, lightning can grant reaction times exceeding any mundane person, and water can grant gills as well as a certain flowing grace, while earth gives a stone skin and stony countenance, and air brings flight. The greatest elementalists take on a form composed entirely of their element, immune to nearly everything.

>Thaumaturgy
The power of Thaumaturgy is the power to interact with the aether of the immaterium itself. A thaumaturge, also called a Wizard, can draw aether from the warp and shape it into nearly anything. As a wizard progresses, his arcane mastery allows him to create simple objects, then more complex machines which may defy natural law, and at the height of his power even living beings. A wizard holds many traditional magical powers, and can open portals to and through the immaterium, or scry the future by watching its ripples reflected in a clear surface. A thaumaturge is rather unique among the spheres in that his mastery of the aether allows him even to mimic the basic spells associated with other spheres, though the mightiest of their powers elude even the greatest archwizard.

>> No.22246041

>Death
The almighty power to control and give unlife to the creatures from which the soul has escaped. The Death Sphere grants you the power to raise corpses and put them under your unwavering control. This power isn't limited to the corpses of humans, but allows you to raise animals as well. The most creative of Necromancers are known to even make creatures of their own in their wicked obsidian ziggurats and Necropolises, and as the Necromancer grows in power, his ability to control more and more minions increases. Necromancers can also catch and control souls, using them as fuel for their darkest magics and binding them into incorporeal undead or as power sources to dark devices. Experienced necromancers can even control their own soul, taking it out and hiding it away from the predations of potential enemies, and even tying it to the mortal plane itself so that they can reform if needed. Potent necromancers have some control over aging, and can revert corpses and objects to newer states or advance them into death and decay, although this far more difficult with living things.

>> No.22246045

>Blood
The sphere of blood allows its practitioners, the Hemomancers, to manipulate the liquid essence of their enemies. At its simplest, this sphere allows a hemomancer to boil a man's blood within his veins or draw it out through his orifices. But the Hemomancer does not only play with blood, he consumes the very life power held within it. His power grows not with practice, but through consumption of this seemingly limitless resource. As the Hemomancer grows mightier, only does not his blood related skills increase, but his intellect, lifespan and pure physical prowess as well. The great Hemomancers go by many names, but most, if not all, control entire countries under their iron grip, waging wars for endless blood sacrifices. So drunk on power, the narcissistic Hemomancers will go over any obstacles to sate their addiction and even further add to their physical and mental perfection.

>> No.22246055

>Mind
The sphere of mind is one of quiet meditation, but it holds great power. A mentalist can read the minds of both humans and animals, and can manipulate physical objects with a mere thought. The greatest can even control the minds of others, or leave their native body to live a new life in another. Invading the minds of other people is not without risk however, for if you access the mind of someone far greater than you, it can consume you, it can render you mad or even dead. This Sphere requires quite the dedication, but after all, the ability to manipulate objects at molecular level and controlling minds might prove worth it indeed, for then, only the imagination and power of the magician is the limit.


>Holy
This sphere can not be chosen in the hunger for power, but only for strong moral and religious conviction. A holy paladin has great power over the human body, and can undo even the most grievous wounds. The greatest can cure even death. Holy powers allow a paladin to protect himself and his allies through mastery by making their bodies exist more powerfully than the magic which assails them, and to destroy such corporeal abnormalities as the sphere of Death creates. As the Paladin learns and his powers increase, his mastery of his own body becomes greater, making him physically stronger, and gradually removing his need for sleep and sustenance. The greatest paladins can even surpass mortality. The wielders of the Holy Sphere along with the anti-magicae are widely considered as the last bastions of defense for the less gifted people, for most other Sphereists are either consumed by themselves or fight each other for their own selfish purposes.

>> No.22246065

>Life
The Sphere of Life grants the user varied control overall living creatures. These druids find manipulating plants, animals, and other weak minded creatures easy. They can cause near instantaneous overgrowths, the most powerful of them tearing cities apart with their strong vines intruding every crevice. They can grow jungles so thick they seem impenetrable, and beasts so large and fierce that armies flee from even one. Druids also take the qualities of those they work with into themselves, making them selves stronger, leaner, faster. The most powerful can change entirely into an animal or plant while keeping their own mind untouched, but most druids, even when experienced, have difficulty with a full transition and will be mentally influenced by the instincts of the creature they resemble. As a druid advances, he gains the power to create life, both within himself These lifeforms mirror the druid's power, either in size, or complexity. They would be able to weave new creatures in their jungle laboratories as they like, or they could craft viruses to ravage the lands of men. While their impressive healing powers are appreciated by most altruistic people, their ability to turn corrupt and cause pandemics that tremble the entire world makes them common enemies of the just. Of course, a path of balance is always an option, to walk in the middle, to have dominion over both specializations, but mastery in neither.

>> No.22246071

>Void
The Void Crystal. This slowly growing, enigmatic and complex crystalline form is known to sap all magic with a mere touch. Those who choose the Crystal are unlike any other of those who were granted powers. They have no inherent power beyond a mere mortal, but they are immune to magic while they maintain the crystal on their person, and as the crystal grows it projects an anti-magic field around its owner. This quality makes it ideal to those who would hunt mages or protect civilians from their carelessness and occasional malevolence, but this is not all the void crystals do. When exposed to a dying mage, whether accidentally or because it has been fasioned into a sword and rammed through his heart, it absorbs his sphere, and everyone nearby is rejuvinated, growing younger in proportion to the mage's power and finding that the limits to their natural abilities have risen. For this almost vampiric feature, the anti-magicae are sometimes considered evil even by those who fear mages greatly.

Let me repost this, since it was at the end of the other thread, and dammit I'm not giving up on potential ZA WARUDO.

>Time
This sphere holds within the power of the very flow of time, constantly ticking away at life. Considered a difficult sphere to master, but with very considerable potential, it is a mysterious sphere that rewards creative use. Unlike other spheres, which seem to grow with power and intensity as the wizard matures, the Time sphere evolves in the opposite fashion. A beginner Chronomancer is capable only of very large areas of effect that quickly drain his energy, while a master of Chronomancy could stop time nowhere but an enemy's heart. They are also capable of slowing down or speeding up the flow of time with many of the same limitations. The greatest secret of Chronomancy is, of course, time travel. Generally considered to be the ability of only the greatest archmages, the ability to travel back in time is much sought after, but even archmages are heavily limited, as it seems causality doesn't like being messed with. At the absolute peak of their power, an archmage might be able to move back a week, draining their substantial magic reserves in the process. A beginner should consider themselves lucky to be able to turn back a minute. No Chronomancer is capable of moving forwards in time, though an archmage could slow his perception of time to the point where he could be back nearly instantly from his point of view.

(I'm bad with keeping things vague and generalized, but the idea is to keep the time sphere but without a lot of time travel except at very high levels. Still needs refining, but I just wanted to toss this out there to keep Time from being forgotten, because goddammit I want to toss out a fan of knives during time stop and get them to all hit my enemy at once.)

Also, in the last thread a group of mages has banded together and decided to make a utopia.
So far two things have been done:
>Colosseum
A place where magic is unrestrained and mages can fight as gladiators for money or fame. The public is protected behind an antimagic screen.
>Void Golem
Void Golem is a peace keeping force in this utopia, that kills rouge mages. They can't be reasoned with. If you did the crime, you do the time or die. Its exterior is made by thaumaturges and it is powered by a void crystal. Still not sure how it works.

Walled cities, with occasional crystalline bricks that have space to expand so that the walls repel magic. There would be a large no man's land outside of it under which further crystals are hidden so that no shenanigans may occur there.

this always struck me as one of the worst CYOA games (if that's what we're calling them these days)

most of these games throw in some disadvantages or limits to make things more interesting, but this is just a question of "do you want to be super powerful, or super super powerful?"

and the threads inevitably devolve into a back-and-forth of "i'm the most powerfulest!" vs "no, i'm even more powerfulist, times 100, times infinity, times more than you can ever say!"

Timefag here, came up with another idea for potentially balancing time travel. Instead of being forced to wait out the time after they travel back, instead they're forced to snap back to present time after a short period of time.

>With the "I can dodge bullets" shit, I can tell you that the reaction time and speed it would take to dodge a bullet isn't something you'll have soon by absorbing people. The average speed of a 9mm handgun bullet is ~620 MPH, the average reaction time for a human is 215 ms, and the average speed of a human is ~14 MPH while sprinting. Let's say each time you absorb a human being you gain one tenth of their physical and mental prowess (this is too much already, really), you would have to absorb hundreds of people (I am not doing the math for you, but feel free to do it yourself) at the least to have be able to dodge one bullet at medium to close range, with multiple bullets the difficulty increases several times, so no. You would NOT be able to dodge bullets and shit "extremely early".

And those are just the bullets you can see, any attacks from a blindspot you cannot dodge from, really.

HEMOMANCY
> (Original)
>The enigmatic and peculiar Hemomancy Sphere grants its user the power to manipulate blood. This full control over blood opens many possibilities upon living creatures indeed, which include but not limit to simply making the blood boil within their veins or drawing their blood out through their bodily cavities. The Hemomancer does not only play with blood, but consumes the very life power held within it as well, for the Hemomancer doesn't grow in power as he practices, but rather through this seemingly limitless resource. As the Hemomancer grows mightier, only does not his blood related skills increase, but his intellect, lifespan and pure physical prowess as well. The great Hemomancers go by many names, but most, if not all, control entire countries under their iron grip, waging wars for endless blood sacrifices. So drunk on power, the narcissistic Hemomancers will go over any obstacles to sate their addiction and even further add to their physical and mental perfection.

I'm not saying I should "master my sphere" i'm saying that I should get all the strength from a human in their blood energy. Thus 10 humans is the extra strength of 10 men.

On the academy was where I spent most of my days
Chillin’ out praticin’ studin’ all cool
And all shootin some fireball outside of the school
When a bad Homomancer
Who was up to no good
Started being a faggot in my neighborhood
He got in one little fight and my mentor got scared
He said ’You’re movin’ with a cultist and a demon itn the Warp

I begged and pleaded with him day after day
But he packed my suite case and send me on my way
Ge gave me a pat and then she gave me my ritual
I put my robes on and said, ‘I might as well kick it’.

Drinking cocaine out of a champagne glass.
In bed with Cultist-chan from day to night?

Well, assuming that the average 9mm bullet does move at that speed, dodging said bullets isn't hard. All you need to do is not be in the fucking trajectory of the bullet. How do you do that? By moving out of the way by the time, that means you most likely had to already be in motion when the bullet is moving towards you. To dodge a stream of bullets all you need to do is just be capable of predicting the trajectories of them and then not being at the fucking palce where they will be.

Seeing as you're abosring the energy of humans, and that obviousy means that their might is yours 10 humans confers the reaction speed, on average, of all those humans. Of course it doesn't work like due to how diverse humans re in such an area, but the general gist is you'd be able to dodge bullets by atleast the 5th kill.

How about this.
Blood mages use the blood they have taken to reinforce or enhance aspects of themselves, consuming it in the process. The more they boost themselves by, the faster their reserves run out. Blood mages can take blood from animals, but it is far less efficient. As they grow in experience, a blood mage learns new ways to strengthen themselves and more efficient methods of using blood, even effecting the minds and bodies of others.

With this setup, you could indeed dodge bullets from the start, but you would run out of power fairly quickly. Experience grants not more power, but more precision and control.

Unles yhou're fast enough to dodge the rest of the bullets.

>Also, you would still need to LEARN HOW TO DO SHIT

Phoenix - every time you cross the line, your power lashes at you, burning, electrocuting and petrifying your convulsing body. The line is closer than you think.

Living Husk - If someone said that being lich is not so good.
>Blood flaw -
Red Thirst - Every drop you drank gave you youth. Power. You don`t want to lose it. You need your blood fix. Now.
>Mind flaw
Open Gates - With time, you will find it harder NOT to use the power. Eventually, you won`t be able to shut your mind from thousands of minor overheard thoughs and you would strike at the targets before thinking about sparing them.
>Holy flaw
Sacred Law - Even minor sins should be punished.
>Life flaw
Same Blood - You have a mystical connections with everything you`ve created or enchanced. Their pain and death will echo in your soul.

Hollow - With every slain mage, Crystal robs you of little part of your soul. Your connection with other humans become weaker and weaker, your dreams become dimmer. Unlike the blood mages, you don`t need to continue the killing. But you`ll find less and less reasons to stop.

I didn't say he would lose his power completely. Basic blood-boiling and stealing are "free", and as you grow in power you need less and less fuel to do cool stuff. Also, blood mages can still "save up" stolen blood, and an experienced blood mage needs so little blood for powerful spells that they might as well have infinite reserves for that purpose.

1.) There is a reason, physical prowess does not mean complete overhauls of your anatomical structure, no matter how strong or fast you are, your skin will not be strong enough to be impervious to bullets.

2.) That "I can determine my own perfection" is bullshit, it clearly means physical and mental power, or else someone could sprout goddamn faerie wings and a dragon's nose for a dick because that's their understanding of "perfection" and if you say that he never specified, then you've gotten yourself into a corner, you raged at that guy for half the previous thread for using his seer ability because it's "too vague", therefore you can't list "PERFECTION" as a reason because it is also too vague

Viruses should be outside of a druid's sphere, they aren't alive in the traditional sense. Many scientists today argue that they aren't alive at all, but rather a fluke of nature that happens to be able to evolve due to the nature of DNA and RNA. Viruses, due to how they behave and what they are would fit better inside the sphere of death. Bacteria and fungi would fit the sphere of life nicely for diseases though

Then you dodge each one in turn. their is no need to "run" all that's necessary is moving the body parts that are in the trajectory, or just finding a way so none of your body parts are touching a fucking bullet in the next 4 seconds.

>It's called lifeblood because you need to LIVE with it, it's a common storytelling element.

Because they fucking understood that blood holds the most life-energy in a persons body, which is why there a fucking class that revolves around it.

>> No.22248393

>>22248057
It's because of what they are. A virus is a protein coat, one nucleic acid, and a few carrier proteins. They do not eat, they do not breathe, they don't have any mechanisms for sexual reproduction; all they do is blindly inject the nucleic acid they carry into a cell. If they by chance hit the right type of cell, their nucleic acid is read by the cell's machinery and more viruses are created by the cell. They are below what scientists define life to be.

Bacteria have several types of nucleic acids that work in conjunction to form a very basic control center that governs the cell, which itself has many parts and pieces that do individual jobs all across the cell. Fungi are even more developed. Both fit our definition of life, they move, reproduce, and have a metabolism.

Except I'm not making changes, tard. Everything I've said is perfectly supported by the OP description. You're just implying more into than what was stated. Their is no context for the "addiction" you're claiming.

>, it clearly means physical and mental power

I'm so fucking glad you're realizing that. I really am. Then you should have no reason to assume that, on the pursuit of perfection, you get to a level that puts you well beyond fearing mortal weaponry. But, still, obviously a hemomancer can alter themselves as such a large influx energy would no doubt produce changes in the body of the hemomancer.

>your skin will not be strong enough to be impervious to bullets.

And who said that? Perfection, and the path to perfection in the physical form, obviously includes having a body that is nigh-invulnerable, and perfection in the mental aspect is having Omniscience. or atleast past the point where a certain threshold of force will not affect them. This this threshold should be relativity easy to obtain for the hemomancer to become :"immune" if you will, to "mortal"(i.e. weak) weaponry. You're just saying "NUH UH I DUNT LIEK DAT", while i'm saying "The OP description implies becoming far more powerful than you're "anti-wanking" them to be".

>by the time you hear the bullet they would be so close that it would be physically impossible to dodge at that point.

The only "phsyically imossible" is if the bullet was touching your skin and bullets aren't instantaneous. If you're fast enough you can dodge it, regardless of whether the bullet was already in motion by the time you heard it.

Not to be petty, but you used the poorly edited version of the Life sphere.

>Life
The Sphere of Life grants the user dominion over all living creatures. These druids find manipulating plants, animals, and other weak minded lifeforms easy. As a druid advances, he gains the power to generate life, refilling the old and injured with new vigour or investing size and complexity into a specimen, however fantastical it may become. They can cause near instantaneous overgrowths, strong vines intruding and tearing apart every crevice of even cities at their most spectacular. They can grow jungles so thick they seem impenetrable, and beasts so large and fierce that armies flee from but one. Druids also take the qualities of those they work into themselves, making themselves stronger, leaner, faster. The most powerful can change into a beast or plant entirely while keeping their own mind, but most druids, however experienced, have difficulty with a full transition, their minds influenced by the instincts of the creature they resemble. They would be able to weave new creatures in their jungle laboratories as they like, or they could craft viruses to ravage the lands of men. While their impressive healing powers are appreciated by most altruistic people, their ability to turn corrupt and cause pandemics that tremble the entire world makes them common enemies of the just.

And so begins the tale of the slightly reluctant Seer.

The worst thing about being a Future Sight user wasn’t being able to see your own future self constantly dying unless you did something about it, or finding out about how your spouse cheated on you before she actually did it. No, the worst thing is that the future is constantly changing, not only because you have the power to change it, but because other people do too. Not only do other people have the power to see into the future and alter it in response, but you’ve got those bastard Time Mages who constantly jump back and forth, stopping and altering the flow of time to the point where I get a migraine trying to keep track of it all. So I don’t. I have a nice gig in this town, and the people appreciate the use of a guy who can predict the weather with utter certainty and whether the baby will be a boy or a girl. Simple stuff like that, I’m fine with watching out for. The big stuff, like the outcomes and battles, I stay the hell away from. But, if there’s something about me dying, I pay attention, since I like to live. Luckily, the nice thing about the future is that little Butterfly Effect thing. I once got a vision of a rogue Hydromancer running rampant through my town, throwing icicles everywhere, killing the local populace (including myself), being a general bastard. So, what did I do? The dumbass enters the town by leaping on top of the stone gate at the entrance of the town. So, I chip off a chunk the top, and wait. Don’t change a single thing other than that. So, of course, the Hydromancer is rolling into town, thinking he’s hot shit, announcing his arrival like he’s some villain out the village elder’s children’s tales. He, just like I saw before, jumps up on top of the gate as his water elementals march through the streets.

>>22251665
“People of this lowly village, meet your new master! Bow down in tribute to me! Do not worry, for I will rule you as a wise king from my palace of ice and you will live in pea- Ohhhh shit!”
The dumbass twists his ankle from the chunk of stone that I took out a week earlier. Hydromancer falls off the gate, lands right on his head and snaps his damn neck. All the water Elementals just collapse into puddles, which was a bitch to clean up. The local populace weren’t actually surprised by the whole thing, they knew what had happened, they knew what I did. Like I said, it doesn’t take much to change the future. Just the right knock in the right place. Well, most times. Sometimes, it takes a lot more than just a knock.
Speaking of knocks, my current current situation will, hopefully be solved by another one. Well, more like a shake. I guess I should backtrack. About a year ago, I get a vision of this entire countryside getting turned into a necropolis. The particular Necromancer that is the cause of this is one of those bastard Necromancers that seem to be convinced that because you control the dead you have to be an evil motherfucker. He was, you see, a follower of the old guard down to the disgusting ritual that turns one into a lich. Even though, you know, modern necromancers have found ways to transform into a lich without slaughtering babies or whatever the hell is necessary for making that evil potion. But no, this Necromancer wants to do it old school.

>> No.22251703

>>22251691
Fine, I tell myself, I’ll just fuck up the ritual with a well placed rock for him to trip on. I love pulling shit like that. But the problem is, the Necromancer knew of my existence, and he was planning for it. He fortifies the area of his ascendence with at least 50 skeletons while he travels around the continent gathering the materials necessary for the ritual so I couldn’t sneak in there and screw up the whole thing before he attempted it. So here I was, trying to figure out how the hell I was going to get into a small cave guarded by numerous undead. I ended up climbing the nearby mountain, looking for an alternate entrance, something the Necromancer overlooked, anything to help me get in. But dammit, there was nothing. No back door, no secret tunnel. Nothing. Only the front door, and the bony gentlemen guarding it would not take kindly to my presence.
I do this for almost a year, trying to find ways into the premises through the local underground tunnel system, but coming up to a dead end each time. I even tried just rushing the place a couple times with some weapons that I got from the local blacksmith and backup from some strapping young lads from the village who thought they would be heroes for stopping a Necromancer’s transformation ritual.

Unfortunately, as I got more men for the job the more variables there were. I couldn’t save everyone who went in there with me. I tried it with a small force of men but the skeletons were too numerous and we were driven back. And as we were driven back, I saw that the Necromancer had set up something not unlike a security system. A series of skulls with glowing eyes ringed along the upper corners of the cave tunnels that the Necromancer could simply look through and check if I had meddled with anything. Now I was stumped. How the hell was I going to stop this? If I had known about the system earlier, I would have simply done a bit of traveling and asked this old friend of mine who was also a user of the holy light, and would have stopped at nothing to stop this rogue Necromancer. But unfortunately for me, I decided that practicing too hard on my abilities would cause nothing but trouble. At this point, my abilities were more like senses for danger, not something that would allow me to look at any point into the future. Stupid, stupid, stupid. Unfortunately, I only had about a week left to do something. I hiked back up around the mountain again, looking for any structural weaknesses in the roof of the cave, maybe just send the whole thing crashing down around him. Growing frustrated, I started to curse in anger at the Lich, even though there was no way he could hear me.

Quick warning: This story has a semi-bad case of Deus Ex Machina.


“Damn you! You just had to pick this place to make your goddamn transformation didn’t you? Just had to ruin everything! Well, fuck you, I’m out of here! This place can rot for all I care!”

“Damn me? Why, what have I done?”

The gravelly voice nearly made me jump out of my skin. I looked around wildly, trying to find the source of the sound. No one was there. I began to shout.

“Who said that? Where the hell are you? Show yourself!”

“You know, you’re not a very good seer, are you? I mean, you should have seen this coming, shouldn’t you have?”

At this point I was getting even angrier. Who the hell was this voice to tell me what to do? Out of sheer frustation, I kicked the rocky wall near me. A pair of eyes opened on the rock.

“Hey, there’s no need for violence!”

It was a good ten minutes that I woke up again after screaming and blacking out. There was a man looking at me. Well, it was sort of a man. It was kind of, you know, made of rocks. I was going to scream again, but he cut me off with a question.

“So, trying to stop a Necromancer from transforming, eh? Tricky bit of work that is. Especially for one with abilities like yours.”

At this point, I wasn’t so much scared as mad. I didn’t care who the hell this rock man was, he wasn’t going to talk down to me.

“Well, for your information, I was trying to find a spot that I could use to collapse the roof onto the cave when the ritual was being held.”

“Well, that’s a fine idea, but why didn’t you just come up and ask me? After all, I am a geomancer.”

A Geomancer. Of course. Men of the earth who maintained absolute control over the land around them, some even manipulating the local plant and wildlife. This one seemed to be more of the rocky type, a wizard who grew so in tune with the earth that he became one with it, gaining a rocky body and immortality. Unfortunately for the art of geomancy, there were very few practitioners spread around the world. Fortunately for me, I had just met one. And now I had a plan.

The next few weeks were somewhat easy, as my plan had been set and now all I had to do was wait. The plan itself was simple enough. On the night of the the transformation, the Geomancer would cause an earthquake at the exact moment the Necromancer transfers his essence into the phylactery. The Phylactery is shattered, the Lich is destroyed, and everyone goes on living their lives without becoming skeletons. Or rather, becoming nothing but skeletons. Yeah. Anyway, it was just yesterday. The day of the transformation, or rather the day before the night of said transformation. Since my part in this fight was done, I was simply getting a bit of shopping done for the house.

Suddenly, a flash of precognition.
The gargoyle atop the chapel next to me was loose, and it falls.
I am crushed under the weight of the stone.
The vision over, I make a small correction to my course, turning about eight degrees to the right to avoid the danger. Passing by the church, I make my way up the street, and another wave of precognition hits me, much stronger than before.
A man is there, next to the church.
He then hits me across the head with a club.
The vision is over.
There is the man, standing under the shadow of the church. I call out to him.
“I know you’re here for me. Who sent you?”

“Who do you think?”

Damn, so it was the Necromancer. Oh well, not too hard to rectify. I pick up a pebble and chuck it at the gargoyle. The extra force causes it to wobble. It falls. I watch with an almost bored look on my face as the gargoyle is falling toward the would-be assassin, about to end his little attempt on my life. But something is wrong. The Assassin is gone. The gargoyle smashes into the pavement with a crash, but no one is hurt. A voice comes from behind.

>> No.22251767

>>22251759
“Really, is that the best you could do?”

I wonder how the hell he done that. No one can simply teleport like that. True teleportation requires concentration and a period of waiting for the spell to take place. There was no light show from the teleportation either. So either this man has mastered a new power that I was yet unaware of, or.... of course. He simply moved out of the way of the gargoyle by stopping time. The Necromancer had hired a goddamn Time Mage. A club strikes the back of my head. I hit the ground with a thud, and everything goes black. I hate Time Mages.

The next thing I know, I’m surrounded by skeletons. The Necromancer is standing in front of me with a smug look on his face. Not only could he not feel satisfied enough with “foiling” my plans, but he wanted me to be there as he ascended. No matter. The Geomancer was still going to bring the entire place down. Except I’m in here with them. Now that we’re all caught up, I can focus on the problem at hand. Namely, the fact that I’m trapped in a cave with a time mage and a soon-to-be-Lich surrounded by skeletons, and it’s all about to come down in about ten minutes. How did I not see this coming? The Necromancer hiring the Time Mage should have been easily visible to me, since it was, after all, pretty much a direct threat on my life. And then I see it. A bag filled with bluish crystals. I don’t know how he did it, but the Necromancer got a hold of void crystals. That’s why I couldn’t see the future, anything he was doing at all. He must have had it when he hired the Time Mage. My attention snaps back to the Necromancer. Oh god, he’s going to make a villainous monologue. He’s so old school evil Necromancer it hurts.

“So, you want to stop me, hmm? Tell me, Seer, what can you see in your future? An army of bone sweeping over your little village, killing the insignificant little insects that call themselves people within? Your corpse serving my will, throttling the life out your neighbors with your own hands?”

“Actually, I see your body crushed by the cave we’re in and myself walking right out of here. And the Time Mage dying with my hands around his throat.”

“Well, good to see your sense of humor hasn’t abandoned you. Shame I can’t say the same of your intelligence.”

I look at him. Another precog flash.

The Necromancer is starting the ritual.
The roof starts to shake.
Stalactites fall from the ceiling.
A particularly large boulder crushes him and the Phylactery.
The skeletons shake and fall apart.
The Time Mage stops time and runs out.
I look up to see a rock crushing my head.

I snap back to the present, the Necromancer has begun the ritual. I don’t have much time. I have to look into the future again.

>> No.22251792

At extremely high levels yes.


I see myself running out of the cave.
There are rocks falling all around me.
One instantly crushes my head.
Okay, dodge left.
Another one pins my foot, I die.
Then dodge right.
More rocks fall.
Left, right, right, left, duck, jump...
How am I going to remember all of this? Got to try anyway. I’ve only got one chance. I pull away as hard as I can and get out of the skeleton’s grip. There’s still a bone arm holding on to me. I make a lunge for the bag of void crystals. Pulling some out, I throw them at the time mage, getting a clean hit in. While I won’t be able to see what’s coming, the Time Mage won’t be able to pull any shenanigans. Got to remember the order of the falling rocks. The roof has already started shaking, and the necromancer has been shaken out of his trance. I run, and I look back to see a boulder crush the Necromancer as he screams. Well, that’s one problem down. Back to the issue at hand, which is avoiding getting crushed by huge boulders. Let’s see if I remember everything.

This one is pretty good. Not sure about the lack of time but I know it's cut because of balance so do what you have to I guess. I don't like generalist elementalists that much but putting the elements together in one sphere is really just book keeping mostly, and it's fine. The little changes in powers I like basically all of, and the names I think are better since it keeps other names for practitioners.

The story ends a bit abruptly. Sorry.

Right, left, left again, two dodges to the right, jump...? No, fuck, duck! Alright, jump over this one, and I should be home free. And finally, like the light at the end of the tunnel, I can see stars. I’m free. I actually survived. Suddenly, the time mage runs out of the cave behind me. How the hell did he get out? No matter. Time for a little payback. I run at him, and before he sees me, I tackle him to the ground. Looks like the bastard isn’t used to his targets being able to fight back. Well, let’s show him what a mistake that was. My hands close around his throat, and I squeeze as tight as I can until he stops struggling. Well, I thought I was bullshitting when I told that to the Necromancer back in the cave, but maybe I was telling the truth and I didn’t know it. I guess these powers are more useful than I thought. Maybe I should practice a little more, so I can avoid a clusterfuck like that.

Over all I really liked it. There were a few rough spots, but you already noticed and commented on them yourself, and the story really should have ended with him back home safe and sound instead of just at killing the time mage. Wind down and closure's an important part of the story over all. Other then that, I really liked the word choice and pacing for the majority of the story and would encourage you to write more.

I was thinking of having each kill raise the cap on physical stats and giving an ability to make unarmed attacks lethal. Some of these concepts seem to have been "phased out" of the main branch though, and I don't really know the reasons for that.

Let's try an epilogue, shall we?

So, here I am. Just got done strangling a Time Mage and crushing a Necromancer under a cave. I start walking back to the village, to my house and my warm bed. Honestly, I am fucking finished with these big crazy threats and villains. Leave the big bad evil guys too the dipshits who shoot lightning or whatever. Myself, I'm gonna go live my semi-normal life. Who knows, maybe I could find a wife, get some kids. As I'm pondering all of this, a voice comes from behind.

"So, I take it you succeeded?"

I whirl around. To my relief, it's just the geomancer.

"Yeah, although it was a little hairy. I was in the cavern when you caused the cave-in."

"Oh, I know. I was watching through the rock. Nice bit of footwork going out of that cave. And the void dust on the Time Mage was genius."

"Wait a fucking minute. You could see me? You knew I was in there?"

"Of course I did. I'm a geomancer, I know all that goes in within my own mountain. What kind of geomancer would I be if I didn't?"

"But, you knew I was in there. And you still caved the whole place in! I could have been killed you idiot!"

"But you weren't, were you? Tell me, if you weren't trapped in that cave and made to look into the future, would you still be intent on once again using your powers as it looks like you are now?"

I was dumbfounded. How did he even know..?

"Wait, so you almost killed me just to teach me a lesson? What the fuck is wrong with you?"

"Well, I do quite literally have rocks for brains, so maybe that has something to do with it. Or, maybe I'm just wise beyond your comprehension. Or I could just be crazy!"

He throws his head back and lets out a laugh that's a little too unsettling for my tastes. Not to mention that he's somehow getting rocks to emit laughter.

"...Okay, well I'm just going to go now. Please stay the hell away from me and my village."

"Oh, please, unless your village has some delicious minerals under it, I'll keep to my mountain, thank you very much. OH, watch out for the molemen that make their homes under your town!"

"..Was that serious or a joke?"

"You'll never know! Ahahahaha!"

His rock body collapses, and I'm alone again. Fucking Geomancers.

Honestly the Geomancer came off a little too obviously as the voice of the narrator. A short talk with the Geomancer makes sense all things considered but the insights would have sounded a lot better if they had come from within IMO.

So I went ahead and begun writing the awakening of a T&T dude:

I just had the weirdest dream.

I was in my room, pushing buttons and flipping switches. I felt oddly gleeful, as if I'd been released from a prison or burden. More odd than that, however, was that I wasn't using my hands. I would press against the switch, feeling the dust and cold plastic, even tough there was no piece of my body there to feel anything with. I would increase the pressure, and the switch would bend downward slowly, and finally snap to the other position, filling me with undescribable joy.

>> No.22254104

>>22254092
There was more to the dream, but all I can really recall was making things move with my mind, and how happy I felt doing that. Everything felt more real, as if my self was no longer constrained within my body.

The happiest state I've been in a while gets shattered by the alarm clock. Suddenly I feel really pissed. Not to mention lethargic. I don't want to get up, but the electronic bastard keeps blaring at me. Somehow it enters my mind I could just tap the button with my mind, like in the dream. That's total bullshit, of course, but sure, I'll give it a whirl.

I start to focus on the aural offender. The muscles on my face grow tense as I stare intently at that mocking digital face. Two minutes pass, I know because I wasted my time staring at a fucking clock like an idiot. Frustrated, I get up and slam the little shithead silent.

With the incessant beeping gone, my nerves calm down a little. I was doing it wrong. In the dream it felt effortless. Natural. Maybe I should give it another try?

Rather than concentrating too hard, I begin to sway my head, and my hands, trying to have the flow of motion extend out of my body. Predictably enough, the paper does indeed fall, from the gusts created by my movement. I grunt and choose to forget about it, setting on my usual morning routine. Every second I waste on this crap is a second more until I get my morning coffee.
