Djed and magic related questions

Postby Misaele Lulmir Hoarfrost on August 19th, 2017, 7:47 am

Since everything in the world of Milzahar is impregnated with Djed, does light too? And, if so, is there a way to use it? For example, could it be possible to store it in a Store Glyph? (As if it was a photovoltaic panel)

Can an air reinmancer use sound based spells? If so, could even a novice do it at some extent?
Also, can air be used to cool or heat something?

Sorry for the djed storm of questions!

Djed and magic related questions

Excellent questions.

The sun and moon are deities. It's safe to say that their light would be djed infused but I would assume that mortals wouldn't be able to manipulate divine djed.

Air could be used to heat or cool something if you had the proper environment to raise or lower the temperature of an object. Blowing on food helps it cool. Using hot breath can help defog a set of glasses.

I would stay away from sound as that would also likely fall under the domain of a god, Rhaus.

These are my answers and educated interpretations. The founders will have final say so if you're dissatisfied with my safe responses, I suggest you create a ticket in the Help Desk.

I hope this helps. Again, great questions!

Thank you!
I looked for the gods related to light and sound and I found out that Rhaus' Gnosis gives abilities concerning sound manipulation among other things and Syna's Gnosis gives the ability of dowsing of things touched by sunlight so yeah, as they fall under Gnosis"es" (?) unmarked people shouldn't have power over those.

That's a pity though... I was thinking about choosing air as the first reinmancy element for my character and I was trying to figure out how far you can go with air alone.

Thanks again for the answer!

I've seen Air reimancy used to play a flute, so sound by association.
Very busy at work. May not be around much for a while.

I think a lot of people choose their primary element based upon what combinations can come out of it. Air can make lightning when mixed with fire, ice when mixed with water, etc. In my opinion, earth is the most underused aside from those who mix it with fire to make lava.


Dove, if you can find a link, I'd love to read that thread. :)

I've just read though that there's a Gnosis that enables the user to manipulate ice and ice is a para element as you said
Is it different because a reinmancer generates ice through their own Djed while a Gnosis marked individual can manipulate existing ice?

Oh interesting
Does this mean that sound can be obtained solely through the use of an object?

Physically, sound is produced by a material vibrating through a medium such as air, or by something moving faster than the speed of sound (such as lightning or a really fast plane). So I don't think air would be able to create sound independently (unless it's being used to induce vibration like with the flute), but it could probably be manipulated to affect the propagation/intensity of a given sound.
