Magic System

Types of Magic

Magic in Nyonia is based on either race or culture that a character comes from. This type of magic tends to be very specific for the race or culture. It is not possible to learn another race’s or culture’s magic.

Magical Abilities

Anyone can learn some magic within from their culture but there are a few individuals who are gifted with a special affinity for magic.

General Ability

Anyone within the appropriate culture or race can learn the magic of that race or culture. The maximum APs are based on the magic level available for the particular culture. The following list of limitations is required for all spells. Additional limitations may be included.

  • Appropriate skill roll: -1 per 5 APs
  • Gestures
  • Incantations
  • Concentration (1/2 DCV)
  • Cost End to cast (At least; all spells cost end)
  • Consumable Focus
  • Side effect – almost always ‘physically injuring’
  • At least 12 real points spent in magic spells
