Conflict

Class Feature: Powered by Conflict

  • Conflict Weavers cast spells using Charge.
  • Conflict weavers gain 1 point of Charge for the following:
    • In combat: Landing a successful blow on an enemy
    • In combat: Taking a blow from an enemy
    • Out of combat: arguing for 10s
  • NB: a genuine conflict has to exist with the target of your conflict. Friends letting you hit them will not generate charge; arguments have to have teeth and be designed to anger.
  • When you cast a conflict spell, you deplete all accumulated Charge, dropping to 0 Charge.
  • Conflict spells cannot gain the caster Charge.
  • Charge is lost between encounters.
Planar Influence
  • When travelling in Conflict, you may choose to activate this ability once per encounter: the charge cost for spells is halved (rounded up). Notify a GM if you do this.
  • When travelling in Connection, the charge cost for your spells is doubled.

Rituals

  • Rituals give weavers the ability to try more freeform magic to have greater or more long-lasting effects than normal spells.
  • The ritualist will specify an outcome they hope to attain by peforming the ritual.
  • A bead bag is used. By default, the bag contains two white and one black bead.
  • Then, the ritualist must draw beads from the bag until they draw a white or black bead.
  • A white bead indicates success.
  • A black bead indicates failure.
Collaboration
  • Weavers with the ritual skill can collaborate to bring about a more complex or powerful effect.
  • Each weaver must be performing a ritual of the same level.
  • Weavers of opposing planes (Conflict ↔ Connection; Erosion ↔ Perfection) may collaborate at an extra disadvantage of one black bead for each opposition.

  • The charge cost for each spell is listed after its name.
