PostSubject: Help with magic?   Wed Sep 22, 2010 3:45 pm

Hello all. <3

OHBOY. Uh. I must have read the info on magic about five times and I'm still a tad lost here.

I'm really not sure how to edit/label/whatever Caulith's magic. Below, I posted his list of spells as they were written for NK and several other places. Feel free to suggest changes or tell me your opinions! (Just remember the point is they're supposed to be Corrupted with is why they may backfire.)

(Edit: If you're wondering about preps, they originally had them and were removed so I may get help on those too. Please do suggest prep times - although I'm not sure some of them would require any?)

To me it seems as if you already have everything all sorted out. In my opinion, you would put Earth magic as his school of magic (the level of his learnedness being up to you to decide), while keeping his poison and shifting powers in abilities (under natural and supernatural, respectively).
About the dice; While it seems that you have your own form of resolving issues, Skuldhellir already has a system. It might be best to just go ahead and convert, but I also suggest asking a moderator if you could be allowed to keep what you already have.

Ah, thank you! Makes sense to me. I'll go with that and hope for the best.
