Aeromancy

Jump to: navigation, search
Aeromancy is the specialization of the element of air and may only be learned in Hallifax, for it draws its power from the Matrix. Teaching the arts of wind, cloud and storm, the Aeromancers are a formidable force to be reckoned with, despite their academic and intellectual leanings.

WindWalk

Syntax
AEROCAST WINDWALK

WINDWALK, DESCEND

As the sky is the home to all aeromancers, you can simply walk on the winds and be at home among the clouds. Also, you will be immune from blasts of wind that move you on the Elemental Plane of Air.
You will now always find it easier to walk in high winds.


Tempest

Syntax
AEROCAST TEMPEST [target|NODES]
Power: 3 (Matrix) (Nodes only)

Damage Type: Electric

Summon forth cold and savage winds to create a tempest that will batter your enemies with damage and cloudcoils.

You may target a single enemy or target all enemies between connecting nodes and the node you are standing on.


Condensate

Syntax
AEROCAST CONDENSATE

AEROCAST FORCECONDENSATE

Power: 1 (Matrix)

You may create condensation in almost any environment, turning it into a cloudy location. If a location is currently the demesne of any druid or mage, you can FORCE it and break the node in that location. It will take some time to break a node and will require your full concentration.


Meld

AEROCAST MELD

AEROCAST CLEAR
AEROCAST SENSE
AEROCAST WATCH ON/OFF
AEROCAST DISSOLVE
AEROCAST BOND
AEROCAST UNBOND
DEMESNE
DEMESNE [NODES

The primary power of aeromancy is to build your own cloud demesne. By using MELD, you create a node of power. You can have up to 3 nodes at any time, and they cannot be placed next to each other. If you place nodes within 5 rooms of each other, leylines will add the connecting rooms to your demesne.
You may also BOND to a fellow aeromancer's demesne and assist them. Bonding increases the strength of the nodes and the elementals that defend them.
While in your demesne, you can SENSE who dare stand in your clouds and WATCH who enters and leaves. DEMESNE will show you what rooms are included in your demesne, and what powers are currently active. You can DISSOLVE your demesne at any time or CLEAR a specific node to remove it.


Whirlwind

Syntax
AEROCAST WHIRLWIND [HERE|NODES]
Power: 3 (Matrix) (Current Node)

5 (Matrix) (All Nodes)

The clouds will darken and become thunderclouds, throwing bolts of lightning at your enemies. The lightning will knock over your foes, or if they are already knocked over, it will knock them off balance.

Additional Notes:
Meld Effect, this will be cast throughout your demesne. You can append DAMPEN to lower this effect.


Squalls

Syntax
AEROCAST SQUALLS [DAMPEN]

Squalls have a chance of blowing your enemies back into the room if they attempt to leave and wrapping them in cloudcoils.

You can dissolve the aura of protection defense around those who are using it to escape some of the powers of your demesne. This requires balance but not equilibrium and is a very fast attack. You can also dissolve it from all enemies between connecting nodes, or all enemies inside your entire meld for a power cost.

Thunderbird

Syntax
AEROCAST THUNDERBIRD

BEAST ORDER BREATHE LIGHTNING <target>

Power: 10 (Matrix)

Create a thunderbird egg which you can raise as a beast. The power cost will be significantly less if cast on the Elemental Plane of Air. The thunderbird has the ability to fly as well as the inherent ability to breathe lightning, which the aeromancer may cast regardless of his or her level in Beastmastery. The lightning breath of a thunderbird has the unique property of wrapping its victim in cloudcoils.
Every two years you may summon forth another thunderbird egg.

Additional Notes:
If you lose the thunderbird skill, your thunderbird will not abandon you; however, it will no longer have the ability to cause cloudcoils when it breathes lightning nor allow the owner to use breathe lightning without the Beastmastery skill. Also note that the thunderbird's inherent ability to fly will always need the flying skill in Beastmastery to use it.


Twister
