Reimancy: Elemental Attraction and the Living Body

Postby Griffith on June 22nd, 2010, 8:32 am

I was wondering if Reimancy made it possible - at higher levels/close range, of course - to pull the water from someone's body, causing death via dehydration?

On a side question, if the elements of water and fire are used for cold and heat respectively with regards to para-elements, would it be possible to draw heat (fire) from a person's body, causing them to shut down from the cold?

Yes, that's possible. Same with air in the lungs, and same with a lot of other devious vile things involving the elements and tissue. The heat issue is possible, but I think its a bit of over-thinking when you can kill them using reimancy other ways.. like lighting them on fire. It wouldn't be subtle, regardless, if thats what your aiming for.

I'm not sure about the heat thing myself, but with air and water, if you can get your res inside their bodies while its still within your zone of control you can do it as soon as you get the proper element.

So, if one would mix his or her res with breathable air, and the person inhales, one could snatch all the air out of the lungs, causing a death that is really difficult to explain?

Its not going to be a subtle thing, and if anyone who knows anything about reimancy hears what happened the explanation will be easy enough. Res is a glowing substance, I think colors vary. In its gaseous form its harder to see, but unless your in a room that's lit up like a Christmas tree then glowing gas is glowing gas.

That being said, ripping the air out of a man's lungs sounds lethal, but whats to stop him from taking another breath once your res is out? Then there's the issue of zone of control. At novice one has only a few feet to work with, and at Competent only a few meter's. Combined with the fact that res dissipates really fast once your are no longer controlling it, i.e. as soon as its out of your range, then its only really effective in certain situations until expert.

Well, no. One forms a ball of Res and starts attracting Air, specifically from the person and the area around them. The air is pulled out of the lungs, and they can't get more by breathing in, because you're drawing it all towards you.

That said, yeah. If they move outside of your range, that method ceases to work.

Well, in a fight, something like that would actually provide a really good opportunity to get an opponent when he or she is out of breath. There would probably be surprise and confusion when they run out of breath doing nothing and the next second it's over. Assuming the magic user can recover quickly enough him/herself.

Well its not just recovering that a magician has to worry about. Reimancy takes time and focus to use. You have to make the res, then make the res the element you want, then do what you want with that element. The likely hood that an enemy will stand by and let you do that is low, they'll probably lean towards stabbing you the moment they see you pulling out the magic.
