Magic of the mind
« on: Jun 04, 2007, 11:06:59 AM »
I was wondering if the possibility of illusion magic would work in the campaign. I have always been a fan of illusions and I was hoping that it could be incorporated in it.

There are illusionary spells.  They are not particulary well adapted to our current campaign.  We "grew up" with D&D and based our spell list on theirs initially.  The illusionist spells got crammed into the mage spells.  It's only been the last couple months we've really gotten into undating the axiom side of the magic system.  It's playable, but has a few snags.  Oh, in Pelicar priests cast encantation and mages cast axioims.

So the short answer is yes, we have illusions, but to be an illusionist would take a lot of patience while we fleshed out the rules.  I will say that when we have an active character specializing in an area with weak rules, it greatly speeds up the process.
So many subplots

Ok, because I have always loved being an Illusionist whenever I played D&D.
