Pretty sure we just need the top 2 actions. And I like the second a bit better.

I'm not going to bother rewriting it now, but using a symbol system is just going to add a lot of confusion, unnecessarily. I'm also just going to vote in a way that moves the game forwards, because I don't really have a feeling for what's up quite yet.

Discovery Phase

Runic System Experiment: Shape(Earth), Attack(Fire), Ward(Air)

New Chant Discovered: Spike of Smoke
A chant that concentrates smoke into a spike before projecting it forwards away from the speaker. The smoke does not disperse nor does it cause much damage on impact, instead forming into a cloud. It is possible to choke on it if the target remains within the effect for long enough.

Investigate Runic Component: Air Element

Celestial Element ‘Fate’ Discovered
Hidden with the currents of Air lay the subtle secrets that govern our actions and guide our dreams. Though we know to look for it now, we have not discovered the secrets of controlling it. Although primarily formed with the aid of the Air Element, we believe some understanding of all the Terrestrial Elements is required to direct it.

Chanting Knowledge Gained
With our mastery of air we have gained new insight into our first Chant, the Wind of Embers. No longer must the wind only flow in one direction for the duration of the effect. Chained as it is to the will of Air, our chanters may direct the Wind as they will; until it ceases to blow.

It is now Summer of Turn -3 Design Phase
This turn is a double turn, so you may take 2 actions each phase. There will be no Battle phase.

Shape the Air> Ward of Earth | Ward Air, Break Momentum

Break Momentum
Sh(A) W(E) W(A)


Air is used as the conduit, earth denotes the area within which all momentum is negated. A circle amongst the ground, a sphere of Air.

Chant: Break against the Sky, Break Momentum!


The Chant Melds the Air to Solidity, serving as a shell/sphere that blocks all attacks.

Smoke barrels.
We have discovered a type of plant during our time on the island that when combined with some other ingredients creates a substance that when burned produces loads of smoke. This smoke has the unique property of making skin contacted with it itch like crazy, and will cause people to rip into their skin, it also burns the eyes a ton. To use this stuff we will put it in barrels and use our spike of smoke chant to launch the smoke outwards towards our enemies.

I don't really want that. Also, it can be defended against, and turned against us.


Given everything..

S(A) W(A) A(A)

This is a good indicator of our air mastery, assuming we can properly complete Form Air in it's final step.

Improved crossbow manufacturing techniques
In times of war we need everything we can get, by standardizing the parts used in our crossbows, we can reduce their complexity.
Ember spear attempt one. Aka finding out how ward and attack function.

Crossbows require a simplified design, all the ones we have are different from each other.

I also note that a triple Air spell would be useful with our mastery. How about that and-


Simplification of Crossbows: Our workers and researchers have found out how these things work, and can now create them uniformly with more success. Knowing how to plane the wood, as well as which wood to choose helps a lot.

great, but I want to do the ember spear test because it only changes one variable, letting us get a better read on what ward(fire) does and/or a better understanding of ward in general. Otherwise put me down as voting for the simplification.

switching because while air mastery will only barely better our understanding of magic as a whole, it is likely to give us a spell that is weaponizable. And I want to keep stuff moving.

Note, change form to attack, since discord Tallon says we need apprentice to use form, we're currently untrained. DGR- OK?

Design Phase

Runic System Experiment: Shape(Air), Ward(Air), Attack(Air)

New Chant Discovered: Wind
Speaking the pure Air Element gives rise to the expulsion of wind mana directly away from the chanter. The wind generated is quite strong and grows more powerful the more mana we commit to the Runes. In comparison to Wind of Embers the force of the wind that can be generated is larger.
With mastery of the Air Element comes the ability to direct this wind as we please.

Roll: 4+1=5 (Easy)

Though our artisans grumbled about the loss of artistic freedom, the will of the Loji people that they should truly master the production of these weapons touched their hearts and spurred them to new heights. Many amongst the master artisans have found ways to carve their mark on the weapons in a more cosmetic fashion, taking pride in the reliability of their function. Now the question our generals find themselves asking is, how many of their troops should not be armed with these perfected weapons?

It is now Summer of Turn -3 Revision Phase
This turn is a double turn, so you may take 2 actions each phase. There will be no Battle phase.
