Magic in Tyren

By:

The Magic of Tyren goes deeper than what one might expect…

Magic in Tyren comes from a single, universal source: Dol. Trigu (the Creator) created Dol to keep the world supplied with a constant supply of energy, so that it and the creations housed upon it could continue to thrive and grow. Thusly, Dol permeates everything within the world, down to the smallest space between atoms. This is great, if all you want to do is go about your daily life doing mundane things. But what if you want to use Dol for a bigger purpose, something extra ordinary? Enter magic.

In Tyren there are two types of magic, Ritual and Kren. Both have their own submission, and thus are linked here. However, there is one overarching thing that I could not formerly word, until Strolen so kindly did so for me.

And as far as a ‘list’ of magic {items}. I dislike the convention of lists and specific magics. The homebrew games I did run, magic was simply a source. They had their “favorite” things they could do with it but it was very freeform using the magic for the situation. It is more fun when you don’t have a list of spells or magic properties to work off of, you can get much more fun and creative with it all…as long as you have a solid idea on what the nature of your magic is.

This is very true. I have a good conception of what the nature of Tyren’s magic is, and that is what has been submitted in both Kren and Ritual Magic.

Kren, the Name of a Card By: Chaosmark ( Systems ) Mystical - Defining

The Kren glowed with mystic power, and with a small flash of light, the physical form of the card disappeared, the energy within rushing outwards…

Nice start. Good organization. Keep up the posting.

I would like a post that summarizes the elements of the mystic system and what they cover (and if they are just physical elemental, or if they have other symbolic aspects). I know it is in the overview... but I would like an "over view" post here instead of the forum.

So in short: I want an overview post. I want an element post. I want demon magic post (so I can see what the bad guys are doing and how). That ends my christmas list for now.

I guess it's a good thing I was planning on doing so anyways. Moving my entire world (what little there is) from the forum to here is my eventual goal.

There seems to be a problem with the codex links.

Corpse Herders

       By: Murometz

The Jiangsi was the name of an undead being in Chinese folklore and mythology. Usually translated as zombie or vampire for Western palates, the Jiangsi was really neither. They appeared as simply risen, fresh corpses. They moved (peculiarly!) by hopping rather than walking, and sought out the living to suck the Qilife force from their victims.

Perhaps significantly more interesting than the Jiangsi itself, was the lore surrounding them. "Zombie wranglers", or "Corpse Herders", usually Daoist priests, were men tasked with delivering these undead beings back to their respective home towns. Tradition in China placed great importance and emphasis on the return of the dead to their homes and families, and thus the corpse herders came to be. By using magick words and talismans they would animate the dead, and by placing specially inscribed parchments of paper over the Jiangsi heads and faces, the corpse herders would be able to control the hopping corpses. Then like pied pipers, they would lead processions of subdued undead, across many miles, rhythmically chanting and ringing tiny bells.

Special inns were built across China to house these undead caravans, as the zombies could only travel by evening and night, the sun anathema to them. Rows of doors opening to barely a closet-space, lined the walls of these special establishments. Behind these doors, the corpses would be stored upright while the corpse herders rested in rooms.

The Jiangsi under the control of a corpse herder were quite harmless, merely hopping after him, silently and without complaint, for weeks and months. If however, the magicked parchment would somehow be removed from their faces, the creatures would immediately seek living humans to kill. Their thirst for Qi was unquenchable.

The job of a corpse herder was an interesting one to say the least.
