Perfection

Class Feature: Powered by Perfection

  • All spells cost one Essence.
  • Starting level Perfection Weavers begin with 2 Essence.
  • Essence is restored between encounters.
Planar Influence
  • When travelling in Perfection, you may, once per encounter, choose to gain Essence equal to your maximum spell charges.
  • When travelling in Erosion, your Essence is halved (rounded up).

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.

Spells

Level 1

Essential Nature

  • Speak to a GM. This will typically return a very broad general category or categories, e.g. “living”, “nonliving”, “human”, “forest”, “ichor”, but may produce more information at GM discretion.
  • Coming into this fundamental understanding is not without risk. An entity of power may use this opportunity to reach out to the Weaver, in turn. The abyss also stares back.
  • At base, this experience is unsettling. You are under the ROLEPLAY:SHAKEN call for the rest of the encounter and can never unsee what you have seen. This effect can reoccur at player discretion.
