Witchers/witches are a rare caste of humans which are able to caste spells. Also this mod allows any race to brew magical potions and craft items.
Instructions: place the text files in your /raw/objects/ folder and generate a new world. Select a witcher/witch caste of any human nation.


0.6 Version: a full version of the game with ibex, weasel and wild boar graphics (I will work on new creature graphics more later) and a new secret type called "eldritch secrets" which works like necromancy and creates wizards. Witchers are a separate entity again (play as an outsider, murder animals, sew a backpack and kill bandits for loot).

0.4 Version:

NB:
- For crafting/brewing all reagents should be in your hands or on the ground under you, otherwise the game won't register them.
- Keybindings: 'x' to brew potions, craft and cast.



Spells
- Fireball: a single ball of fire which can burn or set on fire anything you hit with it. Cooldown: 150.
- Fireblast: a cone of fire which may set on fire multiple targets. Cooldown: 300.
- Madness: makes a creature crazed, so it becomes an enemy of everyone. Cooldown: 300.
- Morpheus' gift: makes creatures numb and sleepy, up to 5 targets. Cooldown: 60.
- Paralysis: a single creature is slowed down and paralysed greatly. Cooldown: 300.
- Raise dead: you animate up to 4 corpses. The corpses are hostile to everything living. Cooldown: 300.
- Slow: you slow up to 3 targets greatly. Cooldown: 150.
- Winged transformation: transforms you into a winged human for a short period of time. Make sure not to fall from the sky. Cooldown: 300.


Potions
Each potion requires an empty flask/waterskin in an addition to reagents.
- Agility elixir: longland grass. Doubles your agility for a duration of 300.
- Battle elixir: valley herb. Makes you feel no pain for a duration of 300.
- Blessing elixir: longland grass and valley herb. increases your skill rolls for a duration of 2000.

- Hero elixir: valley herb, hide root and wild strawberry. Makes you resistant to damage, feel no pain, immune to stun, nausea, tiredness and paralysis for a duration of 300.
- Speed elixir: fisher berry and prickle berry. Makes you 1,5 times faster for a duration of 50.
- Strength elixir: wild strawberry. Doubles your strength for a duration of 300.
- Toughness elixir: hide root. Doubles your toughness for a duration of 300.

That's pretty much what fire imps have. I only had problems with polymorph so far, the new system is very easy and flexible.

I need to explore beneficial syndromes more. I plan to move most of the magic to alchemy system, so it won't be free. You would brew a potion and it would give you powers.

Nice. :) I'm working on my own here.

I think it's the way towns develop now. In the beginning, people move into a town. Then they start producing tables, which results in more and more tables. Soon tables represent a significant portion of the population, they start lobbying for new laws and regulations, putting people to greater and greater disadvantage...

Experimenting with this, I got half of the reaction sets ported over to boiling syndrome-inducing stone, allowing all adventurer races to use them, assuming they contracted the syndrome.

Still can't get the material emissions to transfer to the stone though. Maybe it doesn't work that way...

Thank you for all the fish. It was a good run.

First feature bug report: when you transform into an eagle you can't switch back. Rest works fine (bad you can't see with all that smoke ;D

Did you wait for the spell to wear off on its own? My guess is that the only way you would manage to have a creature that could switch between the two forms at will would be to have interactions on both of its forms.

Wait for a set amount. It transforms you back. Use Z to wait if you don't want to wait the real time.
