Dark Lord Saga! Chapter 24 : Field of Battle has been released!
For this chapter. I really thought long and hard about the kind of incantation’s mages would use for their spells. I know a lot of people take inspiration from japanese/chinese webnovels for their naming scheme and attacks, but I wanted a little more consistency because my world is fusion fantasy between Chinese and European mythology.
With all the books in the world. There was like totally no way there wasn’t a book somewhere that had a spell system that would be totally cool. I mean at some point some genius had to come up with some awesome lines to say in a row to cast a magical spell. So off I went a searching.
In the end, I decided to go with a similar word convention used by Visionaries: Knights of the Magical Light. It’s an old cartoon. I don’t think anyone really remembers it anymore. It is more traditional Europe and when you think of magic. I think the spell casting in it fit perfectly. Haha. It’s like a short series of poems where you say what you want to happen and I think the wordplay can be very witty.
Though in hindsight…this does mean it takes me a while to come up with the lines myself whenever some mage gets into a fight…
I mean for this chapter when Loch casts his spell. It took me like an hour to come up with his three sentences incantation! Three sentences took ONE HOUR. WTF! LOL. I didn’t even notice till I looked at the clock.
More hard work! But it feels right, haha. Now back to job hunting.
