... Grease would still count as a 'minor' power ...? (one of the nastiest 'minor' spells in any mage's repertoire, even if it does not create a combustible slick).

These spells.. powers.. whatever.. aren't limited to specific lists, though?
For example, a character with an academy background might learn different spells than someone who was taught via a less structured school; an herb witch, druid or whatever, but there is no real limit on what kinds of spells they can learn?

That's the impression I'm getting.  It's all in how you connect with and use the Aethyr, in my mind.

Could you explain the abbreviations used in the timeline?  What's YoB, YoP, and YoD stand for?  Sorry if I missed its mention elsewhere.

We've been using the term "powers" because a physical oriented character might have abilities that tailor to that rather being 'traditional spells', in reality they are spells not 'powers'. If we want to get super technical, Mages use spells, martial characters use techniques... #RandomClarity

This is correct. You should tailor your spell selections to represent the character themselves, so don't just go 'grab a healing spell' for the hell of it - but in theory, they could know 'fireball' and 'cure moderate wounds'. Traditional 'classes' are more like titles then anything... Mage is a broad term. Druid might be used for an Elf who has naturey magic who lives... like druids do. Witch Doctor might be applied to a mage who is also an apothecary... etc.

PW: Pre-war
AW: After-war

YoD: Year of the Dragon
YoP: Year of the Phoenix
YoK: Year of the Kraken
YoB: Year of the Behemoth

The years are always counted in that order going 1-2-3-4 (dragon, phoenix, kraken, behemoth) (Mu, Kae, Vi, Laj) and there is never a year 0.

PM's for sent character concepts should be rolling out here very shortly tonight... So keep an eye out.

We're working steadily through the logistics of the group currently, but it will probably be tomorrow before we're ready to comment any more on the back end of things.

Hi folks.

I had a pretty rough 'weekend' (my days off for the week), death in the family of a beloved pet, parents in town, and now I'm back at work.  I have a lot of catching up to do (approximately 6 pages of replies since wednesday). 

Ely and I have a vague idea of what's going on with our pairing.  I need to start figuring out character stuff.

@wyspyr:  I assume the MIGHT stat is all things physical?  Legolas as well as Conan?

From my understanding so far, yeah.  Might is physical capability.  Aethyr is magical capability.  Might would be strength, dexterity, constitution, reflexes, aim, etc.

Yup yup.

Might is all things non-magical, the actual application of which is entirely up to you.

Oh!  Wispyr, Aribeth and I sent in our basic outline concepts.  Will you be responding in PM about them if they're acceptable?  Or if we require a bit more detail? :)

We'll check out the PM today - I've only grazed over it thus far. Trying to play catch up on my posting list right now - cause I've been slacking for days - and then we've got to run to the doctor for an eye exam here this early afternoon. Once we're home and settled back in for the day we'll be looking at the PM's we got over night.

We should have more information, sample sheets, sheet templates, and more game details up and ready for everyone later this afternoon which will be posted here - but all of the PM's we get will get attention themselves.

No you didn't Flower. People have just been sending us rough concepts and what not - not required - to get confirmation and start hatching brain eggs and what not.

I've got a Fire Mage Rider in the works.  Lots of Aethyr, very low Might.  Super curious about ancient magic/technology and history. :D

Aribeth is working on the Dragon of the pair.  A frost dragon.  So we're going for the entire Fire and Ice duality.  It should be really fun to play.

For reasons of being over complicated and mysterious, I'm not eager to say much about my character, however I'll be mostly might, and focusing most of my 'powers' on all sorts of Exalted-style combat effects.

Whee.
