So are both of my arms glowing now?
Huh, why are they just glowing?

Attempt to Cast? Use? the glow on my arm.
That should have...

Whatever, I'm back at full pool, so try those words again.

"Baltaeol...  ralthel phal-aeo gonteli?  Con-thorbdalion concoteael!""Wait... Many small helmets?  Weak magic!"

Put on my helmet, and flip the visor down.  Does it protect my neck at all?

"Hmm... shaazeshelial hoal kallth!""Hmm... I have an idea!"

Say the two spells I sent you.

No.  The turn prior the spell you cast made your left arm glow.  Activating it this turn made your right arm glow, then casting that spell also made your right arm glow.

Ocil asks axe legs if he can make a steel spear with his magic while preparing to defend if attacked.

So activating it made it switch arms?

...so what the heck does it do?
Guess I'd better find something to punch... for science, of course.

Create an flesh horse and punch it for science.

Just Steel? So boring.

Best thing I could think off that I could pick up without destroying my hand.
But, now that you mention it, Derm hand some kind of light tipped spear.
Something like that could be more useful.

Nooo summon a horse made of burning crystal that causes everything it touches to become brittle and shatter.

Clearly running multiple missions at the same time is a terrible idea.  The epic battle to see which team can cock it up worse has escalated again.

And Larry kinda gets blueballed in all this; just left with a raging bone spear and no where to put it.

Any person with three channelling can make an dangerous spear out of any element that you can hold by making the tip out of a different material.

My acid senses warn me of Toaster Updating!

Any person with three channelling can make an dangerous spear out of any element that you can hold by making the tip out of a different material.

I'm experimenting with "smart" combinations (especially with 5s on pot rolls) of elements for multi-element creations. 





Umbulaggis Necti

You determine that Umbulaggis is really fun to say.

[Pot:6+1]  A glimmering glow settles in to your left arm.  It fades in, but remains.


Repeat previous spell (the one I PM'd)

You try again.  Thankfully the GM remembered your good original pot roll for you.  Wait, GM?  Roll?  What?

[Pot:4+1]  A large bat with a wingspan over a foot comes into being.  It flies around your head for a few moments then roosts under a ledge.  Uh... okay?


Put that shit on then do some pming actions!

You put it on.  It's damned heavy.  It'd be nice if you had a helmet that fit, so you try that again.

[Pot:2+1]  Dammit.

[Pot:5+1]  There we go.  It's a little big and really heavy, but you slap it on and head to the magma room.  Slowly.


Yulastomet Adjug! then, Irros Zentol!

then
Activate magitattoo.
((About how... cohesive, let's say, were my words? A mess of un-ordered garbage, or something not lolsuck?))

Well, let's see what happens when you activate that leg, eh?  A spot of the ol' magic first, though.

[Pot:4]  An image of a pair of shimmering horns shoots off to your left.  Hmm.

[Pot:3]  A small jagged scar appears in the air in front of you.  It cracks open enough for a fleshy tentacle to come out.  The tentacle opens up and spits something out at you, before it is sucked back in the rift.  The rift snaps shut behind it.

You look at what was spat at you- it looks like a gummy bear, or maybe a gummy Cthulhu.  It's only pulsating slightly.

Shrugging, you activate your left leg.  The ley lines shine, then activate.  Your leg shivers, shakes, and turns into crystal.  It would be pretty cool if it wasn't also half the size that the leg once was.

[Dex:1]  You fall flat on your face.  Ow.


Actions!

[Pot:5+1]  A network of magical ley lines cover your entire body.  They push back the acid and restore the flesh, before they flash brightly and activate.

Your turn into a burning, shimmering, flickering, octarine form of pure arcane energy.  Nifty.


Attempt to Cast? Use? the glow on my arm.
That should have...

Whatever, I'm back at full pool, so try those words again.

Shrugging, you activate the glow that's now on your right arm.  It flares into life.

A shimmering image of a pair of horns forms before you.  It fades away.  Rolling your eyes, you say the two words you PMed me for the previous turn.

[Pot:5]  Your right arm glows again, same as last time.


"Baltaeol...  ralthel phal-aeo gonteli?  Con-thorbdalion concoteael!"

Put on my helmet, and flip the visor down.  Does it protect my neck at all?

"Hmm... shaazeshelial hoal kallth!"

Say the two spells I sent you.

You say a bunch of silly meaningless words as you flip the front visor down.  Just like a medieval knight.  Looks like there's a bit of neck coverage from some chainmail hanging down- if you had a matching chest piece, you'd be all good.

[Pot:1+1]  You're not sure, but at the spot where you're currently looking, a mouse-sized steel breastplate may have just appeared.

[Pot:4+1]  A steel breastplate appears in front of you- what looks like it would be a perfect match to your helmet appears.  It hovers in front of you for a second then shoots through the door to the magma room, straight at Algem.  Ocil and Dave are in the way, though.

[Dave Dex:1]

Dave doesn't even see it coming before it crashes into the back of him.  Between the armor made of solid rock and his own sturdy construction, it doesn't hurt at all.


Ocil asks axe legs if he can make a steel spear with his magic while preparing to defend if attacked.

You prepare to dodge any incoming attacks.  Thankfully, the random steel armor flying in doesn't go for you.

Armor-throwers and target(s)- I have elected to not put you in combat mode since I don't think the weaponization was intentional and no damage was done.  As such, you still have full pool.

Also I think I'm going to mention when people enter/exit combat mode pool regeneration here from now on to reduce confusion.

Okay, I'm confused about Page 77. It has three words which may mean "Small". I'm willing to pay you in the future for testing those words. Tack one page-77 word onto an object-material spell and let me know you're taking this offer, and you'll get 4 Word Credits. You even get to keep whatever you make!
