>what is this thread for?
The aim of this thread is to provide a space for anons to post their magic ideas and systems for discussion, critique, praise and development, to share and be inspired. High, low, grimdark or cuh-razy, enchanted items, artifacts, technomancy or what have you, it's all welcome here. Feel free to discuss both fluff and crunch!

>things to remember
Most importantly, please try to provide at least some comment to other posts if you can, be it an in-depth reply, minor suggestion, short clarification or a simple 'x is pretty neat'. We all want some recognition for our ideas, so spread it around.

Less important, but worth mentioning, try to avoid multi-post text walls as excessive detail may deter some readers from wanting to read your ideas, so a simple elevator pitch can do wonders. But if you feel a great amount of detail is necessary, no one can stop you, just be aware of your formatting (e.g. small, easily digestible paragraphs as opposed to large unwieldy paragraphs).

>why not just use the worldbuilding general?
I'm not trying to steal their thunder, there just seems to be a lot of 'how does magic work in your setting' threads so I thought it might be a good idea to condense them into one place where we can all just have a good chat instead of having several mostly empty threads devoid of discussion. I also love wizard shit and want more of it in one neat place.

Why? What is the second best way?
>>
>>73631764
I have two magic systems, material based magic and desire magic.

The material based magic has items with arcane energy flowing through them, combine items to create better spells. Has a lot of hard rules, kind of like a science with some secrets to it being kept within witch families.

Desire magic is soft magic allowing you to do stuff that the heavy rules of material based magic wouldn't allow. However using it too much isn't advised, strong desire births demons. The strongest users of this magic have a potent connection to the void to flush out their desires before reaching a critical point. The church also utilises void technology to mimic this connection and boost operatives combat abilities.

They're the best kinds.

Words don't necessitate power. The power of the speaker instead determines how powerful a spell is. The limitations are built right in; to how the language is built. Certain words could be hidden or lost over the centuries.

I also like word-magic as it gives you some good lore potential with finding out where the magic words come from. I also like it because it makes magic feel distinct from other forms of powers or magical skills; like the Gods have powers other then magic, but they CAN use magic as well if they want. Makes magic feel more like a skill.

How would she fare in forgotten realms?
17 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.

>>73646545
She was the person chosen for the role. She had the right blood, the backing of Merlin, and the sword in the stone chose her. She hid her true gender in life so that people would see her as a king before anything else.
>>
>>73639080
There's already a king Arthur expy in the AD&D Moonshae Isles supplement, because the novel was written for a fantasy UK setting that folded before release, so they folded all the work they did for it into post-production Forgotten Realms.

This is why the Moonshae Isle is one of the biggest early sources for contradicting lore.

But to get back to the point, in 1e he was a level 6 Ranger, in 2e after becoming king he suddenly was a level 14 Fighter with a magic sword.

After that I don't think him or his daughters got mentioned again.

One was seduced by the stormlord and became a villain.
The other fell in love with and married the mage who mentored her since childhood. Also killed the evil sister.

Probably pretty well considering she's a bonkers strong warrior on par with epic martials. Her magic resistance and Luck make her more or less immune to the grand supermajority of non-mundane threats. Basically what >>73650732 said.
Muh perfect rule muh honor, charisma, etc means she probably gets deified at some point, too.

My one sort of concern with space travel is it's not very clear in the core rules if you need to roll for neural damage if you are in or out of cryo.
It can make long journeys seem quite the risk as you need to essentially make a check with a cumulative +1 for each square of the map your ship passes through.
Seeing as the ships moved from Sol to Zeta 2 Reticuli (essentially 11.5 squares in distance) and not wig out as soon as they're out of cryo, I call into the question that table and only use it if travelling FTL outside of hypersleep cryo (skip it for synthetics - David seemed fine in Prometheus).
Just something to point out.
Otherwise, ships have an FTL rating to easily figure how many days it takes to move through a parsec and the crew will hypersleep, so usually it's a timeskip and some roleplay of going into cryo and coming out of it.

My take was that HDD's happened if you attempted FTL travel without Hypersleep. And that if you were awakened from Hypersleep without going through the slow procedure of waking up, it could and would actually kill you due to system shock. My reason for asking is that my campaign is going to feature lots of short range travel between star systems in a cluster, and occasionally back to the Seegson station in the area for fuel and halfway decent food (and whoring). If anyone has run the game in campaign mode, does it bog the game down by having people hypersleep for a few days constantly in travel?

I was considering taking a page from the Expanse, and saying that short range FTL travel (less then a couple ly's), you don't have to hyersleep, but you do have to be relatively inert (like strapped into a seat), and juiced with drugs to stop your body from getting fucked by G-Forces and etc

I like the symbolism in catgirls, both the luck and playful nature are neat. But overplay it and it becomes bad. Trying to avoid the "Yeah, i get it, it's a cat" thing is important. It needs to be a character with its own personality.

>hundreds might be an exaggeration
Nigga, let me give you a big, pointy tip:
The concept of "minimum comfortable space to live in" is relatively modern invention. Consider this: pic related is a home for 12-16 people. It only has two rooms (one of those with a kitchen) and a hall between them - the area under the roof is a storage. From modern perspective, it's a comfortable house for a family of 5 and a cramped shithole for 8. It was considered a high luxury of a well-off freeman (basically a noble in everything, but the title itself) when it was build in late 18th century.
