Magister

New To Playing A Magister?

Magisters are humans that can wield and use  magic though their being is not magic and because of that they are limited to what they can do. Magisters get their magic from the Ley Lines that are found in Cruxweld. If a Magister is not  careful, they can run the risk of overexerting their body which at minimum can be fatigue though if overdone can cause the magic they wield to start to corrode the body as if fire burning through their veins. Magisters are referred to as a lot of things though Witches are the most common. Magisters are capable of spell casting, rituals, charms, hexes, wards and more. In order to use their magic, it requires them to use focus, vocal invocations and had gestures as well. Magisters are usually part of covens but can also go a solitary route as well if they choose to. Everyone starts at the title of Magister and must learn and grow their magical skills before being able to pick a discipline to devote to.

Weaknesses

Mortality:
Magisters are at disadvantage despite their ability to use magic since they are still human and are held by their mortality. They still live up to the average lifespan and while some Magisters (Healing Magisters) can slow down their age progression some, they cannot expand it to be able to live longer. They possess the same weaknesses as humans.

Emotional Distress: 
In order to ensure that they are using their magic efficiently, a Magister must be in control of their emotions as they perform a spell, ritual, blessing, hex, etc. Stronger emotions can enhance their magic but it’s a fine line as too strong of an emotion can result in them being unable to keep control of the magic being used as they would struggle to keep their emotions under control as well. When emotionally distressed, their magic becomes unpredictable and cause spells and such not to work as intended, can risk the magic being cast back to the user.

Distraction:
Preventing a Magister from being able to fully concentration when casting may result in the spell, ritual, hex. Blessing, etc in becoming ineffective or less powerful.

Magical Fatigue:
Magisters are humans that have been gifted the ability to be able to use magic and because of it not being a natural source of ability for a human it can cause fatigue on the body and even the mind. Magisters must be careful that they are not over extending their limits as they as overuse can lead to Unconsciousness, depletion of ones reserve of power and if done to an extreme or consist basis can even lead to death. When pushed too far, the magic begins to de-stabilize and engulf the user as one would feel the body overheat as if experiencing a fever and the magic would flow through their body, coursing through faster and faster until they it magic can not longer be contained and results in the body either bursting into a flame that cannot be put out until the body has fully turned to ash ( does not set fire to their surroundings) or the body begins to decompose and erode.


Magical Limitations:
A magister must be able to vocalize their spell, ritual, hex, blessing, etc in order to be able to cast it but also must use their hands as well to be able to do so. More skilled Magisters would be able to cast effectively with just the hands alone. If a Magister is gagged and bound, they would not be able to have access to their magic aside from emotional distress and would as a last resort need to depend on unpredictable magic.  In addition, spells may require a line of sight or even touch to be able to be performed or performed effectively.

 

Appearance

Magisters look no different humans, that is until they are casting. Some Magisters may have their eyes glow when they are casting, some may have an aura that wraps around them. While not visible in appearance, some Magisters may very lightly effect the mood of a room to those that are susceptible such as a shiver down the spine. Depending on the Magister Clan, some may be more adorned with nature colors, some may more adorned with technology in the sense of steampunk aesthetic, etc. Regardless, they are still human and would not have anything that would make them look unhuman such as wings, tails, additional appendages, etc.

Characteristics 

  •  All Magisters are able to create Day Rings for Sanguivores, Water Rings for Maritines and also able to assist with creating Tethers to create Spectrals. 

  • Magisters are more sensitive to magic and can sense active magic around them but cannot tell where the source is coming from whether it be from an object or a person.

  • They share the same weaknesses as humans such as hunger, temperature, mortality, illness, etc.

  • Due to Magisters only being able to use magic and are not magic itself, what they can do comes with limitations.

  • Magisters are versed in different magical abilities, a thirst for knowledge and a respect for nature.

Feeding

Magisters are human and thus require eating food and drinking water to be able to sustain. They are affected by alcohol and other substances as well and feel the effect of magically created  substances even more so. 

Turning/
Reproduction

Magisters are not able to be created but instead are born. Magisters can only reproduce with other humans to be able to have a spawn and the spawn would take only the abilities of one of the parents.

Magisters are able to reproduce with:
Humans
Magisters
Shifters
Shamans
Peacekeepers

Moon Effects

 During the Full Moon, Magisters are at their strongest with a higher success of being able to cast and during this time, inexperienced Magisters would be able to cast with their hands alone but not to the same effectiveness as an experienced Magister.

During the New Moon Magisters are at their weakest and can feel the decrease of magic from them however can still turn to coven magic to be able to cast to the same degree as the average magister. It is during this time that Magisters can feel the lessen of magic and for some can drive them to relapse and become stir crazy. Unless casting in a coven, Magisters face the risk of unpredictable magic if they are casting alone.

Race Haven

Magisters can seek their own in the Cruxweld Forest  in the magic shops Cordelia Curiosus and Lucida La Croix or in the Coven Area that they share. Magisters come together here to learn and practice together or be it the occult shops nearby that they are able to stock up on resources and such. New Magisters can feel a pull to both these areas and find their way through the forest with more ease to these spots.

Race Group
 

Magisters have a Coven overall that is run together by the Magister Elders that oversee the Magisters as a whole and help to grow and teach new Magisters that come their way. 

Magisters are able to create their own personal covens however the coven and its ‘Leader’ still answer to the Magister Elders (Magister Race Leads).  Magisters do not have to be a part of the General Coven or personal covens and can instead go a more solitary route however Magisters that choose to do so would need to seek permission for assistance directly with the Magister Elders before being able to be assisted by a Magister in the coven. 

Solitary Magisters are also unable to perform coven magic as the magic done by a coven is weaved by trust, faith, strength and practice of those within their coven to be able to meld their magic together to be more effective.

Coven Structures/
Positions

Covens are a group of Magisters bound by a magic oath, composed of four or more members, forming an inexplicable bond that unites each member in the coven. Losing a member is the same feeling and sensation as if losing a part of yourself or a piece of you and can be very painful or a huge toll on those involved in the Coven.

When Magisters come together to form a Coven, they are able to use Coven Abilities that requires at least 3 or more members of the Coven to come together to be able to use abilities that they would not be able to use alone.  How a Coven is formed is different between Magisters as there are many different approaches, rituals, methods that have been throughout the various backgrounds of different Magisters. 

To be able to leave a Coven, the magister must sever the magical connection that unified them with their Coven and must undergo a a severe cleansing ritual. The ritual takes 2 days to complete and once done the feeling of loss, isolation and heartbreak can be felt for 24 hours regardless if the sever was intentional or not on the Magisters end that is leaving the Coven.

Council of Elders
Regardless if it is the Main Coven that is led by the Magister Elders or a Coven created by Magisters that do not join the Main Coven, Covens still follow under the Magister Elders and when a new Coven is created should be introduced to the Magister Elders. 

 

The Crone/Crow
The Creator of the Coven and usually the one that takes the feedback, looks out for the Coven and makes sure that their needs are heard and brought to the Magister Elder. Can be compromised of one or up to 3 in total Magisters. 


 

 

The Sisters/Brothers
Those that have grown within the Coven to be able to be deemed an official brother or sister to the Coven. These Magisters have gone through the trials and tribulations to show that they are there for their Coven and have shown they desire to stay.

 

The Magi 
Those pledging to a coven, their time as a Magi determined by the coven. Completing a significant magical task is usually the cost of joining but it can vary from Coven to Coven on what it is that is needed to join and is mandatory to be notified to The Magi what it is their goal is to be able to join from the start so that there is clear communication and transparency.
