Learning the Flux

Postby Daegron on October 6th, 2014, 6:38 am

Hey Djed manipulators !

How possible is it for someone to "learn" the Flux discipline by himself ?
Would it be plausible for someone who has witnessed it's use to try and discover it, beginning from the assumption that this display of unnatural force is a product of some kind of Djed manipulation ?

Also, how possible would it be for a Morphing practitioner to make this happen ? According to the lore, Flux and Morphing are polar opposites. If a Morphing mage is able to manipulate and direct Djed around his body in order to initiate and fuel transformations, doesn't it give him the kind of anatomical awareness to try and redirect force and energy ?

It would take a lot of time and a lot of pain, but as the Lore suggests, it would be VERY potent.

I hope it made sense. Thanks in advance :D

The Art will twist you and turn you.
It will break you and tear you asunder; from your scattered remains it will shape you.
It will engulf you and spit you out.
It will fester in your mind, disfigure your body and blacken your soul.
And so on and so forth, through an endless chain of transformations till the time comes and you are everything...
Then you'll truly be nothing...

Learning the Flux

So, as far as I'm aware there isn't any initiation for Flux. I'm guessing just as long as you make it believable, maybe have your PC observe someone using it, and try it over a couple of threads? Or whatever you think. Maybe ask your local story teller?

And as for morphing not mixing well with Flux -- I think that's because morphing causes the user to become gradually unfamiliar with their bodies. They ultimately change bodies so many times they eventually forget what they're supposed to look like, or at least, the one who aren't so careful do :P
Flux, on the other hand, requires a intimate knowledge of your body. It would be difficult to master both, but if your willing to risk death, or worse, then I say go for it! Just remember to thread it out!
