Blessed & Cursed


Blessed & Cursed
The Avatars of Yavania are active with the mortals that call these lands home. Forever watching, they have been known to bestow blessings and curses upon those deserving of them.

How does one get Blessed?
Simply by being an active character. The site hosts Blessing Nominations every Summer and Winter season. From those nominations, a public poll is taken to see who the site believes should be chosen! On the first tab are the creatures who have been blessed by the Avatars. Those who are blessed are permanently physically marked by the Avatars, their gifts staining the fur of the Blessed.

How does one get Cursed?
Challenging or disrespecting Mother Earth or one of her servants is the most common method. On the second tab are the creatures who have been cursed by the Avatars for their offenses.

Magic of the Blessed
Blessed characters will find themselves granted not only a gift from an Avatar, but they will be granted access to the unique power of the Avatar that blessed them (found below). These powers can only be used once per thread.

Lightfruit
Blessed by Syuna

The user is able to grow a fruit that looks like a pear on the outside but is composed entirely of light on the inside. The fruit has two functions. It can heal all poison/venom if eaten. Or, it can be projected at someone to explode upon impact no more than ten feet away from the fruit. The explosion temporarily blinds anyone within 10 feet of the impact for one post and gives second degree burns in the same radius on any parts exposed to the light on a target's body. The user is immune to both the blinding and the burning.

Hydroguise
Blessed by Cyfton

The user can create a coat of water around themselves, half an inch thick, that does not restrict movement. It blocks all attacks for 1 post. Visible electricity holds the water in place and if touched, an uncomfortable jolt of electricity will zap the target.

Bloodbound
Blessed by Defros

You can now create a bond between you and another creature when you taste their blood that lasts for 1 OC month (from the post in which you taste their blood). The user can always find them and speak into their mind, implanting suggestions that they will think are their own. These suggestions can be resisted, but it takes an effort of will. The user has reason to crash any thread the target is in during the bond. The bond can only be maintained with one creature at a time.

Shadowtouch
Blessed by Kulla

This power allows the user to launch their shadow at a target, and it can perform one of two functions. First, the shadow can be used to heal minor injuries such as shallow cuts, scrapes, bruises, and first degree burns, as well as moderate lacerations; alternatively the user can have the shadow perform this healing on themselves. Secondly, it can be used to cause a phantom sensation of a moderate laceration upon the target where the shadow hits. This phantom sensation lasts for 2 posts. The shadow may only do one of these things per thread.

Grapple
Blessed by Litar

The user causes molten metal to erupt from the ground at their command to wrap around 2 feet or paws of the target that are touching the ground. Though it is molten, it cools immediately upon impact so no burns beyond first degree are sustained by the target. It lasts for one post and cannot be broken. After it's done, it flows back harmlessly into the earth.

Launch
Blessed by Mythys

At the user's command, a small diameter of land, large enough for their entire body, quickly erupts under them; propelling them 30 feet in any direction. If the user lands on a surface, their fall is cushioned so that they sustain no damage. If the user instead crashes into another creature, they both take damage that would come with an equivalent fall. Once the target is launched, the pillar recedes into the earth.

Weaver
Blessed by Marlon

The user of this power is able to weave a tale (any story) so well, it makes the senses believe it to be true. As long as the caster is telling a tale, they can shape the world around them. In a 5 foot radius around the user, the landscape can be shifted to reflect the tale being told. For each post the user continues to tell the tale, this radius can be increased up to 5 feet larger in radius. The caster is not immune to any hazards that they create. These changes appear real to every sense. If the user stops telling the tale for a post, the effects fade.

Ripple
Blessed by Maata

The user of this power creates a rippling wave of kinetic energy in a 10 foot radius from their body. It extends in all directions and targets any creatures within the range that the user desires. If struck by the power, the target is repelled 10 feet in the direction away from the user.


BLESSED POWERS

In addition to the Blessed power given to them based on which Avatar bestowed their Blessing, your Blessed character has access to the following branch of magic, which is based on post count. You cannot earn these powers through purchase, and (unless stated), these powers have the same powerpool rules as Elements. Additionally, these spells must be practiced like any others -- unless designated with an asterix (*).

Power
Required Posts
Description
N/A
(see above)
25
As a Blessed creature, your character is automatically granted the unique magical spell associated with the Avatar that Blessed them. See above for more information.
Longevity
50
Divine magic flows through your character's body. They now will not die of old age until they turn 16 years of age. They will be an adult until they are 14 and, from then on, they will be considered an elder. This power is passive.*
Dismissal
75
This power enables the Blessed character to banish Spirits back to the Eternal Realm. The Spirit may not re-enter the thread they were dismissed from. *
Fellowship
100
Your character may forge a permanent telepathic link with up to 3 characters of their choice. You can only share thoughts, not feelings. To speak telepathically to one another, characters must be within 50 feet of each other. Any of the creatures connected by this power may use this spell to talk to the Blessed character and to each other freely. This power is passive and takes no points to use.*
Espy
150
With this ability, the caster is able to determine if a target is under the influence of a spell. This includes but is not limited to Hypnosis, Disguise, Shift, Charm, Allure, etc. If the user focuses, they can discern the name of the power as well.
Restoration
200
With concentration, the user can invigorate themselves (restoring a level of health to themselves). This means characters with good health will have excellent health, characters with fair health with have good health, and characters with poor health will have fair health. This ability does not heal physical wounds or illnesses, but this can be particularly helpful during spars. Injuries taken after the use of this power will still affect their health. For example, a broken limb will still bring them down to poor health.
Counterspell
250
Your character can 'interrupt' the spellcasting of another character. If the target is casting a level 3 spell or lower, the spell fails and has no effect. In order to use this spell, the caster must be aware that a spell is being used. For example, Flamethrower can be seen as it starts.
Cure
300
Your character can now permanently cure a Cursed creature of their ailment...if the target is not a loved one (friend/family member). Blinding gold light envelopes the castor and the target. When it fades, the target is cured.
Rewind
400
This ability enables the castor to 'rewind time' by 3 consecutive posts, effectively eliminating those events from happening. The user gets to choose who remembers that time has reversed upon first casting the spell. If they do not specify, then everyone will be able to remember it. This ability may NOT be used in a spar.
Anti-magic Field
500
The user creates a 10 foot diameter area (that is 5 feet tall and is centered around themselves) that negates magic. Any spell within the circle will be harmlessly dispelled -- even spells currently affecting the user. Any spell that attempts to penetrate the circle will fail to do so. This field lasts 2 posts.
