Silver Tongue holds the fang like a dagger and will protect Turtles if the beast attacks them.

Turn 28

Image

Burned ignores his amulet's tremblings and heads east to a brand new area and finds himself at the mouth of a cave... Sounds like something is snoring inside.

Image

Silver and Turtles look at the monster and then at each other. Silver nods and takes Turtles's centipede fang. It is on!

"lets see what magic can do"

Turtles focuses all his energy on harming the creature. Suddenly, he feels a searing pain in his chest as the energy is released (-1MP) and he loses 1HP. It seems to affect the creature at least though, which yelps in pain at the attack. Silver leaps forward, slashing with the makeshift blade, but he can't get through the creature's thick fur. The snowbeast manages to hit him though, and does 1DAM.

Both goblins are starting to feel the cold and will need to warm up soon or take damage.

Image

A little further south and Princess Sparkles starts to explain some more about how to use magic.

"So, what types of magic are there, exactly? And how do they work, in general?"

"Using magic is pretty easy really once you get the knack. Soooo easy that even you (yes, even you!) can probably manage it without killing yourselves in the process, but there aren't TYPES of magic, stupid! It's all just MAGIC you know? The thing you need to remember is that casting spells is all about MANIPULATING the natural energies around you. You can't just say 'I'm going to cast a fireball' and WHOOSH! there's a fireball! If you want to cast a fireball you need to take the energy from somewhere first. If you can't find an external source, like a (really big) fire or something then you'll basically be using your own energies as the source for the spell and that's a pretty quick way to end up dead...

Actually...

...Yup, the green dude just did exactly that. Moron. Magic is just a way of moving energy around: you can do ANYTHING you want, but every spell you cast has a consequence and has to be paid for. Also, don't bite off more than you can chew. You're only novices, so don't start trying to channel the energy of the sun or something idiotic. Start small and go from there. Make sense?


"Is it possible for you to teach me any magic of divining the Truth in someone statements, or finding a desired object?"

"Well, that's... less stupid than I was expecting for question time... Finding STUFF is easy if it's magical cos you just follow its energy until you find it. 'Truth' isn't exactly an energy though is it? I suppose you could force your will on someone if you really tried, but you'd have to be prepared to pay the price of that."

Image

Travels meanwhile heads back towards the cairn and gets to the mountain spring.

Image

Splits checks the river bank for flint, but all the stones here are smooth and rounded. Good for throwing, but useless for starting fires cutting things with. He heads west again towards the cairn.

Image

Questions checks the log, but it's soaking wet and rotten and is no good for drying out anything.

NEXT UPDATE ----->

----------

Slightly rushed this eve, so will get Obsidian Portal and the map updated tomorrow.

Burned very briefly considers shouting a fearsome warcry, but then decides that at this point of time, that is a VERY bad idea.

So he just charges south and attacks that stupid snowbeast.

Some of you magic guys, come and use yer magics to help kill this thing.



Some things to try concerning what we've learned:

- Meditate, and then try to grasp the "calmness". We might be able to use that for a calm spell. It might also help to generate mana for more effective magic missiles.
-Likewise, we might be able to get a rage spell.
-Myself, I'm going to try out if I can harness the power of diplomacy later in time. (You'll see what I mean. :lol: )
-Try "absorbing" a few random elements and see what it gets.


Also Thinks, now your just trying to get somebody to dislike Princess Sparkles. Still, it's not for Burned to argue with a spirit of a little girl that has been "imprisoned" for so many years. Though maybe in the long run in a "Now look here young lass" way. :P

"Hmm...Excuse me, Princess. I am going to go try to put some of your principles into action. Would siphoning the cold from the surroundings to harm the snowbeast that my clan is fighting work? Or perhaps sapping it's energy?" FindsTruth asks, then heads towards the snowbeast as fast as he can. If he gets there in time, he will try to suck the cold from the surroundings and put it into the snowbeast, with a goal of harming it.

Balls. In my rush to get the update done before a party last night, I forgot to put in the effects of the cold on Turtles and Silver. They are due to start taking damage next turn from the cold, but I forgot to put it in the update sorry! It's been edited in now and hopefully you will both see this in time if you want to change your actions...

Ok, I will keep my action as it is - I think we should probably fall back to the rock pile next turn. Princess may be able to attack the snow creature if it follows us.

Turn 29

Image

The goblins gear up for a showdown with the snow beast, but then all change their minds at the last minute and scarper off to do other things. All of them except Questions and Finds that is, who bravely face down the monster alone. Questions attempts to use a wet stick to attack the creature, but it's no more effective than using his bare hands and he can't get through its defence. Finds has a little more luck and uses 1MP to draw some of the coldness from the snow around him and drive it into the snowbeast. The snow around Finds's feet melts as the temperature increases, and the beast growls in pain as the magical coldness hits it. It looks like it's nearly dead, but it's not out yet and manages to hit Finds for 1DAM, bringing him down to 3/5HP.

Image

Silver reluctantly flees south to warmer climes with Turtles, who uses his remaining 1MP to draw the life energy out of the grass at his feet. He manages to regain 1HP, but the grass around him withers and dies. The ninja rabbit is visibly upset and drums a complex beat on the ground with its hind foot.

Eaten continues to probe Princess Sparkles about using magic,

"Ah, I see......what about manipulating physical things, like earth, water, or air? Does that involve transferring movement energy, and if yes, how exactly does that work? Also is it possible to convert energy - turn fire to lightning, light to sound, that sort of thing?"

"Well, it depends on the situation really... Air is the easiest to manipulate because you just need to alter the natural movements of the wind and there's nothing to stop it. Water is a bit harder, but can be done, and moving the earth will take a LOT of power because there's so much resistance there naturally. But that's if you want to shift the really big stuff - if you just want to throw a small rock, but can't be bothered using your arms, then you can mess around with the gravity near the rock. Every time you use a different type of energy, you need to spend more MP on the spell though, so try and keep things simple when you can."

"Ok, last things you need to know... Ummm... Ok. If you need to store energy to use later on, you can, but you need something to store it in. In my time, we used to use special metals.. They were kind of... well, SHINY, I guess. I don't really know how else to describe them, but different types were better than others... Hey, like that ring the green guy has - that's one! Some fabrics could store magic too, but... Bah! It was SUCH a long time ago I can't remember properly...! Oh well, you'll just have to work that stuff out yourselves.

"Oh right, one last thing. Sometimes it's worth combining your powers to cast one really big spell. It takes a bit longer because you have to focus on each other's energies before you can start on the spell, but it can be worth it if you do it right..."


Splits arrives and starts looking for a stone he can work into a sharp edge.

"Psssst! Over that way!"

In a remarkable display of helpfulness, Princess Sparkles points him to a likely looking pile of stones and he finds a few that look suitable. Splits chooses one, then sits down and begins to work on sharpening the stone into a sharp edge. It's slow going, but he makes a start.

Travels also arrives at the cairn and waits to start learning about magic.

"You guys next, huh? Well, if you want to try... Are we ready to begin?"

Image

Up at the cliff, Burned decides that fighting the snow beast is not worth it at the moment and heads east to explore a bit further, where he finds another berry bush. He's getting cold again though and will need to warm up next turn or take damage.

NEXT UPDATE ----->

-------------------

Image

EDIT: Ok, so it looks like Questions is getting hit in that image cos I messed up the colouring, but what is ACTUALLY happening is that he's been knocked out of the way while the beast charges at Finds. Totally, definitely what is happening there. No art errors to see here... None. :shifty:

EDIT EDIT: Yes, Silver and Turtles are now warm.

SPOILERS:What a lot of learning!
