  6. Party Members
  7. -------------------
  9. (note that some former party members are listed; not all are necessarily with the main character at any given time)
  11. - Abigail Fang - The niece of the Archmage of Archon, Yi Fang. She is a talented Spirit mage. 20 years old.
  13. Her magical skill encompasses limited gliding, offensive spirit projectiles, a strong magic barrier, and a vast number of summons. She isn't experienced, but holds the raw magical power and stamina that marks her family.
  15. - Sir Donovan Flint - A knight of Dobshire, the capital of Arland, and fourth son of the lord and ruler of Arland. Wears adamantium half-plate and wields a two-handed longsword enchanted strongly with the wind element. He also wears a magical cape that repels magic, especially that of the Shadow element. 29 years old.
  17. Sir Flint is an exceptional fighter; his skill is built from hard work and experience. He can enchant his blade with light magic to give it a powerful cutting edge, possibly his most useful skill. He can also make a small light and shoot a weak projectile of light magic. He is capable of healing, but it's an unrefined skill and drains him greatly.
  19. - Joey - A young boy from Jacob's Field, now Sir Flint's squire. No particular magical talent. Wears leather armor and wields a shortsword. 16 years old.
  21. - Auriel Lightchosen - Formerly a powerful angel of the Ringed City, now one of the leaders of Haven. Wears heavy plate steel and wields a sword and a wide, round buckler. Her magic isn't what it used to be, but her experience makes up for the loss in power. Hundreds of years of battle and political maneuverings make her a shrewd and charismatic leader. 732 years old.
  23. Sword for sword, Auriel is a match for anyone in Venia. Her spells aren't powerful, but are varied and useful, ranging from straightforward attacks to distractions based on light and sound. She is an exceptional healer.
  25. - Obis Vin - The exiled Prince of Kan Abar. He wears steel-adamantium plate armor and wields a ram-headed shield and a sword. He has no particular magical talent, but possesses a powerfully enchanted cape that can completely hide his presence. 32 years old.
  27. Obis is a skilled swordsman. He is well-educated and well-rounded, possessing a deep knowledge of Venia's politics and history. His time with the orcs in Tarun Gakth made him a proficient tracker and hunter. More than anything, he is a survivor.
  29. - Ila Marril - Formerly enslaved by the ring city, she is a shadow mage trained in espionage and hand-to-hand combat, and now helps to lead Haven. She wears light leather armor and wields a punching dagger. 26 years old.
  31. Ila isn't as powerful in a straight-up fight, but she rarely charges straight on. Her power lies in magical deception combined with her agility and speed.
  33. - Freja Blackwater - The daughter of the infamous pirate Vidar Blackwater. The Blackwater family has long passed down a rare combination of Wind and Spirit magics, and for several generations have served the princes of Kan-Abar as privateers. She wields two enchanted blades that extend out from her vambraces, and wears heavy leather armor with enchanted adamantium plates. 23 years old.
  35. Freja is skilled with her short blades, closing the gap to her foes and making quick work of them with swift flurries of strikes. She is capable of limited flight, and knows a few offensive wind spells. Her strongest skill is a set of unique summoned creatures developed by the Blackwater family.
  37. - Lien Adavan - An ancient sage from a country that no longer exists; Hecate's greatest and most loyal general. He didn't entirely trust Erebus's plan, and, as a backup measure, went along with the Goddess of Spirit when she entombed herself. His time as a lich weakened him significantly, but his knowledge and experience are exceptional.
  39. Adavan's strengths are his cunning and foresight, as well as his powerful mind magic, the knowledge of which was lost in the years following the elementomachy. He can bind, cripple, confuse, and distract enemies, instill fear and panic, and even crush a foe's mind outright. Given time, he can examine and alter memories themselves.
  42. --Servants-- (1/10)
  43. Adavan
  45. --Chosen-- (2/3)
  46. Abigail

  113. Sleep Gas - Release a sleep-inducing gas to knock out your foes. The gas is potent, but isn't very useful in battle, or against powerful enemies.
  115. Glide - Your aura allows you to glide, dropping safely from large heights or covering large distances if starting from a high position. Gliding is always stealthier than flying.
  117. Flight - Spread wings of darkness to soar through the air. Carrying capacity is based on physical strength.
  119. Supersonic - Fly at supersonic speeds. You'll move extremely fast, but suffer a large penalty to stealth and magic stealth. Takes 1 turn to activate.
  121. Mimic - Take on the vague form of things you've seen. Won't stand up to close examination, but works well in the dark.
  123. Snuff - You shadow can put out the lights it touches.
  125. Blink - Sight-range teleportation. (Cannot blink through walls, through the ground, into places you can't see, etc. 5-turn cooldown in battle. Auto-cooldown if battle ends. You can only Blink yourself and inanimate objects on your person. Max range 1/4 mile or 0.4 kilometers)
  127. Fast Blink - You can unleash a flurry of sight-range teleports, baffling and confusing your enemies. (exceptional dodge buff for two turns; opens additional movement and escape options. Costs 6 mana. Negates enemy initiative. 5-turn cooldown.)
  129. Focus - With a burst of concentration, you can significantly improve your detection of both the mundane and magical, but you also drastically increase the risk of giving yourself away. (think sonic ping)
  131. Deep Focus - Long-range focus with heightened detection and scouting ability, but with a correspondingly higher chance of revealing yourself.
  133. Berserk - Ignore your defenses and strike all around you in a vicious physical assault. Difficult to determine friend from foe. Minimum duration two turns. No other abilities can be used while berserk.
  135. Darkness Within - You are the immovable rock and the unstoppable force. Your berserk is exaggerated in all aspects (except for defense penalty, which doesn't get any worse). Minimum duration of four turns, no other abilities.
  137. Shadow Eater - Eat an enemy's shadow for a small heal. Their shadow will regenerate over the course of a day. However, things might turn sour if they notice their shadow is missing...
  139. Doom Aura - Puts out all lights in an area at once. Large penalty to dodge if used during battle.
  141. Compress - By sacrificing strength and defense, you can compress yourself and your aura to the size of a small mouse, greatly increasing dodge and physical and magical stealth. Warning: requires a turn to activate and deactivate.
  143. Schattenkrieg - Wrap yourself in your aura and fly toward the enemy, becoming a living missile of darkness. Major bonus to physical attack and armor piercing. Optional: spend 5 mana to add additional shadow attack power. Chance for self-damage based on attack strength and target defense strength. Can stack with berserk, but self-damage is then guaranteed.
  145. Analyze - You pause and concentrate on your surroundings, gaining an acute awareness of tricks and traps. Alt: In battle, reveal enemy weaknesses, or other useful information. Takes 1 turn, and may force defense or dodge check.
  147. Teleportation - Teleport between any mana pools that have been previously touched. Alt: You may establish one portal anchor at a location of your choosing. Afterward, a portal to the anchor can be opened at any time. It takes 2 turns to open in battle, and it takes two turns to close. This skill is easily countered by enemy magic and is best used outside of conflict.

  187. Pocket - Forge a pocket within the nether that only you can access. The size of the pocket is determined by magic power level (3^lvl meters cubed. For example, pocket with magic level 2 = 9 meters cubed of space) You can reach the pocket at any time, assuming your magic is functional. Each object placed within or withdrawn from the pocket costs you 1 mana, independent of the size of the object. The pocket has no gravity, but starts filled with air, so living creatures could survive there. However, long periods in the nether are not good for the health of living things. You cannot transport yourself to your pocket.
