Dick has been thinking about ways to make Castle Pentagram more effective in multiple ways.

He already mentioned the Solar Panels. Let's set one panel at each point of the compass at the top of the Castle. Panels will be used for mundane use as intended. Lights, power electricity. Now lets add some magic. Mount the panels on some gears so they can also face outwards past the castle walls. Spell the panels to absorb the Sunlight for other uses.

Store Sunlight for later uses. Real Sunlight.

Who knows when that hoard of Vampires or other sun hating beasties may attack? Just turn on the Sunlight.

Focus in the side panels and make a laser.

I'll think of some other uses.

Next Step.

Dick needs to get four Windmills and water Wheels in place. Get a moat dug around the Castle. Mundane use once again for natural energy to power the Castle

Magic Uses. A Moat with Running Water. Cast a Purify Water Spell on the water wheel and surround the Castle with not only running water but Pure running water.

Aeromancy and Aquamancy?

Dicks next spell and idea. Clone.

It's not that he does not like being a full fledged Fae in the body of a giant insect. Heck, he even plans on staying that way for about a year so he can find out what is really going on in and around the Fae court. Increased Faerie Abductions are an issue as well as his trying to be kidnapped by Maeve.

So he plans on growing a clone and keeping it protected by a Magic Circle that only he can pass through, maybe a few others. Keep the clone in the basement of Castle Petagram. Use hairs from his brush the night before he changed as a material component.

I think I have the memory loss part figured out as this clone will have no brain.....

Clone
Pr=10 per basic hit. (enchantment/necromancy) This spell creates an exact duplicate of a target. The caster needs blood, or some other part of the original to create the clone. It takes one month per basic hit to grow. This spell costs 10,000 dollars a week in supplies and support. Remember the clone will have no memories that the original had.

Scene: Dick Dante sits in his Library in Castle Pentagram sipping Chamomile Tea.

  Ah, Cantrip, I did not see you there in the doorway. Please come in and sit with me, we need to talk.

  Can I interest you in a cup? No? Very well. Would you be so kind as to pass the sugar then since you will not be joining me in a cup. No, I'm sorry not a cube, the bowl, seems I have developed a bit of a sweet tooth lately. (Laughs uncomfortably)

  Cantrip my friend. You have been so kind to me over the last several months and I want to show my appreciation for all your assistance. As you know after my "Transformation" I immediately began writing a formula for what I was going to call a "Clone" spell. My thoughts being to use a few hairs from before my transformation and create an exact duplicate of myself. I would then afterwards complete a spell to transfer my essence from this current form to the Clone.

  After much thought I have decided against this idea but that being said I have put so much work into the spell so far I want you to have my notes. Perhaps you can complete it yourself. Feel free to use the Library of course and  consider The Phoenix House to be your home away from home as it were.

  Who knows what uses it may be. Perhaps for healing someone who is beyond all hope of healing with any other means?

  What do you mean? "Why have I changed my mind with going forward with the reversion?"

  Cantrip my good friend. This is who I am. This is who I was always meant to be. I like this new body. It is mine.

Tattoo Magic

New Spell Idea

Magic Tattoo: This Spell allows the caster to prepare a spell in advance and place it in storage in a Tattoo on the body to be used at a later time. The spell cost would be the original spell cost plus one PR for every day the caster wants to store the spell. Material components would be the original spell plus the casters blood. The caster not need be an artist. The components from the spell to be stored are mixed with the casters blood and smeared on the body where the Tattoo is to be placed. The caster concentrates and the stored spell is placed on the body in whatever picture the caster can imagine.
This type of spell would most likely be best used with protection spells or body altering type spells but could also be used offensively.

Spell failure can be quite rough as a botched attempt can cause the spell to act upon the recipient in a negative way immediately so be careful where and when you cast this.

Wand Craft:   This is a rare and guarded skill.  Many magi make fortunes crafting wands for others, but the cream of the crop know that there is nothing like creating your own wand.   Just knowing that there are no hidden spells lurking under masking spells is reason enough to want to fashion this handy tool on your own.

First you need the know how.  This skill supplies that.  Then you need an original idea for the wand,  that takes and inventing point.   Then you must fashion it, ( the inventing process).  Last, you need to empower it.

  There are several spells one can use for that,  Life Bond,  Bestow Enchantment,  Soloman's Transformation,  or Midas' Touch for example.

  Once this is done, you are ready to dazzle and bedazzle.


Staffmaking:   Now this is an art!    Just learning this skill is a quest in itself.    You can not just pick up a cool looking stick and wave it around.

Like Wand Craft,  you must first learn the skill.  Then an idea is needed, ( inventing point)  then create the thing. ( inventing process).     Then many of the same spells that work for wand will work.  How ever, the wizard must make a roll when the spells are cast.

Staff: I+Ld20.  The Success of the rolls ( the difference you rolled UNDER the total of your Intelligence and level is the total amount of mana the staff can hold.

Of course you can over charge the staff, but each point over equals the percentage that the staff will back fire when used.

This total mana storage number is fixed when the staff is created. If you want a better one, you have to start from scratch.

And when you find your total mana, you then select your spells and that's it.  This staff will only work for those spells. 

So many Wizards will have a few staves.  A battle staff full of fireballs, lighting bolts and such; a staff of protection, and maybe a general, all purpose staff.

Vagabond,

Check all files for languages called Gnomoi, Gnome or Gnomish. If none on file reference Dworoi, Dwarven or Dwarvish. Last case check Eldari, Elven or Elvish. Translate via Human language English and cross reference.

Send the following message via Speaker and Com Links to the area currently shown in monitors 4, 8 and 12.

  " Welcome to The Vagabond, a conglomeration of a thousand ships from a thousand worlds. I am known as Dante and I am currently commanding this ship. I am a comrade to The Mighty Mars and Bruca of The Ras." Unfortunately I was grievously injured while battling alongside the Might Mars on the planet Earth and taken captive. I managed to locate those of The Star People who assisted me with a ship for Interstellar transport. I was set off on a quest to locate " Division Zero" by the Stellar Patrol Being known as Bruca. My quest is to return to Earth at the same time I was injured so I may continue the fight to protect Earth. Mt story is a long and intricate one and I am willing to share. Will you help me to return so I may protect our Planet? "

  It's funny. When I first Created Dick I was thinking of a Revolver wielding Occult expert. "Professor Richard Dante" I had John Rhys Davies in my mind the whole time. When John suggested he was a Dr. dealing in Holistic Medicine I ran with it.

Now he is Mecha Dick. How the hell did that happen?  Smiley

From now on, the magic spell bonus due to dimensional shift will be taken care of when the spell is introduced.  It lessens the accounting.

So Dick lost his Meta Powers. Bright side is he can no longer go Meta Psychotic. I am sure I can come up with a way for him to go crazy anyway without that but I will give that one time.

Kind of a good thing no more powers since it makes me go back on focus on Magic. I lost that focus. Sadly it will also make me post a bunch of short reminders to myself. You all may read them and think something cool was posted. No such luck.

Biggest issue right now will be inventing points. High level, much weaker ( for now) and less powerful will be challenging but more fun. Need to use the inventing points but use them wisely.......

New thought for a potential weakness. Obsession: Infinity

Why? because I like cool weaknesses and it fits. Twice Dick has been exposed to unlimited knowledge and power and  twice he lost it quickly if not immediately.

I just see him getting teased by it every time he closes his eyes or loses focus. All that power just out of his reach. Or is it?????
