Yellow Magic





Level 1 Yellow Magic




Magic Circle Against Earth

Enchantment -
Weapon, Deals Yellow elemental damage

Range - MAG
Enchantment -
Weapon, Deals yellow magic damage.
Armor, +1 DEF against missile attacks.
Accessory, casts Wind Wall once a day.

Screech
Description - Screech creates a sound that is loud enough to damage its target, though barely. Half actual sound and half in the mind of the victim, beyond the designated target its sound isn't even audible. Screech is popularly used by the powerful to play with weaker victims, resulting in a slow death.

Cost - 2 MP




Level 2 Yellow Magic




Earth Resistant
Description - When opposing elements clash, they are often both at their most effective and their weakest against each other. In such situations, wind bearers may banish the influence of green magic native to the area, resulting in a considerable disadvantage for plague bearers and other green magic users.
Effect - Provides an extra 50% magic power against Green magic in the area for d4 + intelligence turns.
Range - MAX
Enchantment -
Weapon, Deals + d6 Yellow magic damage.
Armor, + 2 Con against Green magic
Accessory, + 4 Against Green Magic
Cost - 6 MP

Lightning Shield
Description - Lightning Shield takes the form of a crackling cocoon of yellow magic. In addition to being quite harmful for others to be near to, the shield effectively absorbs all yellow magic attacks and reduces the potency of green magic attacks considerably. Also, the strong magnetic effects of the spell cause conventional attacks to lose effectiveness as well.

Range - Self

Armor, minor Lightning shield, anyone melee attacking the wearer takes d4 yellow magic damage.
Accessory, + 4 Mag against green magic.
Magic Power - 10

Effect - Destroys green magic spells in an area.
Range - 9 Squares around the caster.
Enchantment -
Weapon, Deals +d6 Yellow elemental damage
Armor, Reduces Green magic damage by 25%
Accesory, +4 Mag against Green magic.
Magic Power - 7
Cost - 7 MP

Lightning Bolt
Description - The age-old trademark attack of the wind bearer, Lightning Bolt is all raw energy and little finesse. Though the range is short, it matters not how many targets the spell has to pass through to reach the last one in line, for the spell functions at full efficiency at even the farthest point.
Effect - Inflicts d6 + level damage to all enemies in a 2d4 squares straight line.
Resist - DEX, CON halves damage.
Range - 1
Enchantment -
Weapon, Deals +d6 Yellow elemental damage

Accessory, Casts Lightning once a day.
Magic Power - 10
Cost - 8 MP

Mass Haste
Description - Mass Haste was designed for large-scale battles, for obvious reasons. It grants no stronger effects than basic Haste and takes more out of its caster to cast, but it can easily affect half a dozen people. This makes it easily worthwhile if the caster is fighting with more than a signle ally.
Effect - Increases the whole party's speed by 25 + level % for d4 turns
Range - MAX
Enchantment -
Weapon, +2 Dex, -2 Str
Armor, +2 Dex, -2 Def
Accessory, +3 Dex, -1 Int, -1 Cha, -1 Mag
Cost - 10 MP

Flight
Description - Another classic yellow magic spell. The Flight spell is older than most sentient races, devised by Eolan planetarii when their powers first started to wane from full natural flight towards their current levitation.
Effect - Allows the caster to fly for MAG minutes. The caster is still subjected to flying encumberance and, if struck, must make a CON roll to avoid falling to the ground and taking d4 damage for every square he falls. Speed while Flying is twice one's walking speed.
Range - Self
Enchantment -
Weapon, Casts wind slash three times a day.
Armor, Halved Weight
Accessory, Casts flight once/day
Cost - 10 MP

Thunder Arrow
Description - Thunder Arrow saturates the tip of an arrow with pure yellow elemental force, the shock of which can render the strongest fighter nonresponsive. Though it doesn't cause as much damage per hit as Lightning Touch, but it can affect far more targets at a single casting. Experienced casters have been known to enchant full quivers in moments.
Effect - Enchants d10 + level arrows so that they deal d4 yellow damage and have a 25% chance of stunning the enemy.
Range - Self
Enchantment -
Weapon, Electrified, deals +d6 Yellow element damage.
Armor, minor lightning shield, anyone melee attacking the wearer takes d4 yellow magic damage.

Armor, Immune to Sleep, Howl, Screech and Silence.
Accessory, casts sleep three times per day.
Magic Power - 7
Cost - 8 MP

Accelerate
Description - It's a matter of debate where the Accelerate spell has its origins. Eolan planetarii racing through the sky? Catfolk warriors imitating the fastest runners of the wild plains? The secret of the first Xiadomian fencer-hero with incredible speed? Many claim the invention of this spell, never mind it's found right about everywhere.
Effect - Increase running speed (not dexterity) for d4 + level points for d4 turns.
Range - Self
Enchantment -
Weapon, +2 Dex, -2 Str
Armor, +2 Dex, -2 Def

Armor, +2 CON
Accessory, Casts Choke once a day.
Magic Power - 11
Cost - 14 MP

Summon Air Elemental
Description - Arguably the oldest spell ever created that's still used to date is the Nai'ithar-origin one of creating a gate to an elemental plane and allowing travel between the two planes. These days the gate is mostly one-way, as few would want to see the definitive flames of existence up close or end up encased in dust and rock. The denizens of these elemental planes come as bid, however, and are used for all manner of tasks.

Range - MAG

Armor, Immune to stunning.
Accessory, Casts Howl, Screech and Imposed voice three times a day.
Magic Power - 12
Cost - 15 MP

White Wind
Description - Though most simply call it "wind magic", there is much more to yellow magic than the shifting of air. Some spells seem to infringe on the properties of other schools of magic, and many white mages have coveted the restorative power of White Wind.
Effect - Recovers all allies from status damage. (Not death)
Range - MAX
Enchantment -
Weapon, 10% chance of casting wind blow on the enemy upon strike.
Armor, Immunity to one type of status damage.
Accessory, Casts white wind once a day.
Cost - 13 MP




Level 4 Yellow Magic




Lightning Storm
Description - The ultimate yellow magic evokation produces a dark thundercloud that still constantly flickers and flashes yellowish-white with its own inner power. Legends tell of castle walls and supposedly insuperable defenses ground to powder and blown away by the Lightning Storm.

Razor Wind

The most disciplined and elite wedge formation walking right into a Razor Wind would soon be reduced to razor-sized bits themselves.
Effect - Creates a gust of razor sharp wind that cuts everyone in a 16 square/side cone, dealing d12 + level damage.
Resist - DEX, CON halves damage
Range - 1
Enchantment -
Weapon, 20% chance of casting Wind Slash upon striking the enemy.

2007-09-01 [Sturmi]: yeah what's with that silence spell, does it last forever? does it prevent a magic user from casting spells? it doesn't say anything there

2007-09-01 [Silverbullet]: Hehe, well I have no idea, really...
I could check the other magics to see how long the duration could be.. But I'm thinking silence would prevent a magic user from casting spells, except for glyphs and scolls and other magical items...?

2007-09-01 [Veltzeh]: Well, it would depend if the magician needed speech in the spells. The little I learned from Dur was that it was the player's choice – some people used words and some didn't. So some mages would be unable to cast spells and some wouldn't.
And I think that in scrolls the spell is actually read out of the paper, so... X)

2007-09-01 [Silverbullet]: ....So, yeah. That doesn't help us :P

2007-09-01 [Sturmi]: by the way, it says it affects an area as well, not a particular target... so if the person would move away from that area would be able to talk again?

2007-09-01 [Veltzeh]: Yeah.

2007-09-01 [Silverbullet]: What if the spellcaster aimed for the target's mouth as the designated area?

2007-09-02 [Veltzeh]: I think you can only target a single thing, and if it's a moving thing, the area will move with the moving target.

2007-09-03 [Duredhel]: Gah.. I really got to finish the spells D: keep in mind many of these spells come from the first version of Lemire, before we even had MAPS. So any suggestions you guys want to make for the finished version you can just drop in the comment box or the RoL FAQ mebbe.

2007-09-03 [Sturmi]: Well... Tiae's been silenced recently. So I'm curious about that particular spell now... she won't be a mute forever, I hope

2007-09-03 [Silverbullet]: I was only planning on having her be muted for the duration of the battle at the most...

2008-01-30 [Duredhel]: Done

2008-01-30 [Silverbullet]: Whee!
Just one question for enchanting armor with Flight. Does it halve only the armor's weight, or all of the character and what he's carrying?

Also, Silence doesn't suppress noise coming from areas anymore? That kind of kills every RP scenario I was planning on using it for XD

2008-01-30 [Veltzeh]: What does "DEX, CON halves damage" mean? If the char resists the spell with DEX, it takes no damage on a successful DEX roll or half damage on a successful CON roll and full damage on a failed one?

2008-01-30 [Duredhel]: Only the armor's weight. And yeah, veltz.

2008-01-30 [Blood Raven]: so a char gets to save with both his DEX and his CON? Damn 0.o;

2008-01-30 [Duredhel]: either or dude, either or.

2008-01-31 [Grengo]: Don't suppose you can make accelerate work for other characters instead of the caster, can you? >_>

2008-01-31 [Duredhel]: Nupe :D

2008-02-01 [Grengo]: Fucker.

2008-04-27 [Silverbullet]: Wind Slash has the same description as Silence! :O *Duh duh duuuun*
