Custom Magic Disciplines - Applications
« on: July 12, 2014, 08:38:53 AM »
Do you have a custom magic discipline one of your characters uses? Do you want to expand the discipline and make it available for others to use? Do you just want to make up a new discipline based upon a dream you had one time? Whatever the reason, use the skeleton below to submit a custom magic discipline.

How to submit: Click "[Select]" above the code box below. Please rename all headings as appropriate and try not to leave anything blank. If you require assistance for a section, please ask. Applications are allowed to be posted before they are finished, so long as most of the application is filled.

It is up to the Plot Team to critique and approve applications. You don't have to change your applications according to Plot Master critique, however, not changing anything greatly lowers the chance of your application being approved.
No Plot Master has more weight than another; decisions will be made as a democracy and the majority decision will take effect once reached.

Code: [Select]

I feel like the wounds would not only carry over, but be smaller/larger depending on the animal you shifted into. Like, a sword slash down the entirety of a Rhino's back = A massive gash down your back.
But a slash across the flank of a Sea Gull = A small knick on the hip.

I'm not sure how I feel about it. A lot of it feels like Sharigan, mostly because it shares a name, and the IM is directly taken from it. I think I'll leave that one up  to the more experienced graders.

I... don't like it. We already have an Illusionist discipline and Cerebmancy that allows for better mind reading. The seeing into the future glimpse thing is probably the only thing we don't have. And though I don't know anything about Naruto, from Gideon's comment it seems as though you're trying to replicate it here? Idk. In my opinion, it's simply waters down other disciplines and puts them into one. So I'd say no, personally. Wait for Dre or someone.

I like it, Parz. Though yeah, it's almost a literal copy of the Naruto thing (I don't watch Naruto so take that lightly). Even with seeing into the future, that's just a very specialised Sensitive ability.

It's not 100% identical to Naruto, and I read it.
What I was going to ask. . . What area is missing with the disciplines here, like completely nonexistent and lacking?

I guess I'm fine with it, if you maybe add something about seeing through illusions and mental disguises with reading the mind only possible after a very long period of training.

Do you mean Feramancy?

That's the one. It could work as a more applied version of Feramancy but one would beg the question as to why you wouldn't just group it into Feramancy. For reference, Anima, we're talking about this discipline here: http://www.skulduggeryforums.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=5915.msg16779864#msg16779864

Thank you for all the advice, here is my new and improved discipline. I agree it is quite similar to Feramancy but I figured this discipline could be maybe a result of someone trying to be both a Shapeshifter and a Feramancer.

I'm fine with it, since it's kind of like a more specialised version of shapeshifting into animals whereas that's only a minor super-advanced part of Feramancy. Will wait to see what others say before posting it though. And I cant think of a better name. I'm terrible with names.
