Domain Magic Main Page Q&A

Domain Magic Main Page Q&A


Welcome to the Domain Magic Main Page Q&A. Any and all questions surrounding the Domain Magic Main Page can be asked here. This page is currently undergoing Lore Analysis. What this means is that I am leading a project to touch up all the information in this page, to make it more consistent with lore across the site, and answer questions that there might be on it. Additionally, we've found some information might be known and isn't included in this page, so the Lore Analysis is part of adding those in as well. So feel free to ask any questions relating strictly to this particular page. We will be doing Lore Analysis on individual magics following the completion of this page.

Re: Domain Magic Main Page Q&A

I've been tidying up my knowledge of the lore as of late, and I've wanted to ask some questions that might help to refine things.
  • Overstepping. Is it like a muscle, where you can feel yourself about to Overstep, or is it like a progressive high that makes you want to cast more and more, feeding into that 'magic is an addiction' theme? I've been told the latter before, but the wiki seems to indicate the former now. Is this now one of those things where you're free to interpret how you wish?
  • Can Fractures be seen from within Emea's Veil in addition to the Untold?
  • I've been told you can Flay Ether from a Fracture. If I'm within the Untold or the Veil, can I Flay from my environment? Can you crystallize generic rocks into simple Wells in this way similar to how Aberryte is fashioned?
  • Will racial limitations on Domain Magic be lifted or changed into more character development opportunities now that a more lax standpoint on what a PC can do is being taken. similar to how Ghosts have Sparks if they have them when they die? I understand in the case of a Wisp as there's a good explanation in there, but I would love to see some Spark-Corrupted Tunawa where their natural Ether resistance inverts and they are just these tiny monsters instead of flat-out not being able to have their souls given the Spark, and Naer Becomers could just be shadow beasts that have to get tattoos on all their new forms to properly praise the sun.
  • Would a Revealed/Released become a Fallen Lord if subjected to enough Divine Ether or made into a Mortalborn through other means, or would they become something else?
  • Flaying. Does the Thirst flaw continue to double after it's been Is the Thirst limitation a hard limit, or can a PC highly skilled in Resistance, Discipline, Endurance, and/or Meditation bypass this cap without becoming a Starved One?

Re: Domain Magic Main Page Q&A

Hey there, me again.

Adding to my questions in the Becoming Q&A thread:



1.
I am aware that Marks differ from the Spark due to the nature of their ether (more pure and stable due to being given from an Immortal) but would it be reasonable to conclude that a Spark might be influenced in some way by its host's Mark(s)? More so in regards to mutations and such.


2.
Speaking of mutations, I know there is a character repository page on the wiki because I've found my way there once before but I now can't seem to find my way back. Clicking the link that appears to be the correct one only leads me to a blank page. I'm trying to check out mutations that are currently in play so I can avoid any similarities/double up as I work on my own and I vaguely recall there being a category for mages (or maybe this is my brain making things up). Assistance is very much welcomed.


Thanks again in advance.

Re: Domain Magic Main Page Q&A

1. Absolutely.

2. All Mutations are categorized as subcategories under their specific magic. So the flow is, for instance, Becoming > Becoming Mutations > Becoming Awakenings & Corruptions > Individual Mutations. Not all mutations are in there yet but we are updating them as we convert Prophet Notes into the Wiki
