Place the chaos coil on the chaos ward, and stretch it.

Like a pinball machine

You try to touch the Coil to the Chaos Ward, but it can't seem to get within three inches of it's surface.
You suddenly hear a drilling noise coming from the direction of the stone arena. It stops briefly afterwards.

You go to the arena. Though nobody is in sight, a large sign has been pinned into the ground.

Future site of
SCHOLAR SAM'S MAGIC ACADEMY
teaching any magic skill in four posts or less

A stack of catalogs is in a box on the side of the sign.

You take the catalog and flip through it. The whole thing is essentially a commercial for Scholar Sam's, except it contains a nice listing of the nine forms of magic.

Would you be so kind as to categorize the various points on this list?
  • Dark Arts (Araches has a college education in it)
  • Suxball (Cast by Faw)
  • Masshurt (Cast by Faw)
  • Self Destruction (Bob the Fish's signature move)
  • Load Game (counts as magic according to the dark chaos energies)
  • Chaos Magic (uhhh... you know)
  • Noberries and Traftonberries (seem magical enough)

Oh, and what is the catalog made out of?

Probably a low level Sux Magic or Non-Elemental spell. Most lower level spells don't take skill in that magic school to cast, but aren't as powerful.

Seer spell. As explained, some spells can be cast at a lower power without skill.

You could theoretically categorise spells other ways; by element, Chaos/Order, offensive/defensive, but this perticular society uses these nine categories. And the catalog is paper.

And where did the paper come from?
(Forgot to ask about Fireball, Iceball, Earthball, Noball and Waterball if it was cast, which I forget)

Could Faw concievably use his healing skills to bring back forgotten memories?

SUX MAGIC.

Probably not.

Let me explain my wonderful magic system in one large paragraph. Doll Magic includes any spell that makes inanimate things do your bidding. Though enchanting dolls, scarecrows, action figures, ect is a popular form, it also includes some telekenisis things. Enchantment is a very large group, but none of the spells can actually modify you or an enemy's HP. They generally increase an ally's skill or decrease an enemy's. Glitching only contains one spell, but couldn't fit in any other category. Though you can get it to work sometimes with extensive training, only those who are naturally gifted with it can get it to work all the time. Healing magic, as suggested, focuses on healing and raising allies. It contains a few HP draining offensive spells too. Like Glitching, Mindmagic only has one spell. It regards the control of living things by use of hypnotism(sp?). Non-elemental magic is almost entirely direct-damage. It has a few spells, like Misfortune, that are just too mean to be an enchantment. Seer magic has spells that allow you to see things that are happening, have happened, or will happen. Summoning focuses on calling things to help you. Lastly, Sux Magic is the largest category. It's not really all the spells with the word "sux" in them, it's just that all the spells... well, suck. The spells are so specific there's generally only one use for them, but if you're ever in that situation you'll be thankful you know them. Spells like "summon paint remover during Christmas" and "disable all plastic springs" are common Sux Magic skills.

Few questions...

Where does Color Magic land? I am talking about White, Black, Red, and Blue magic-class spells.

Time magic, like to distort the plane of time? (If this is mastered then NOBODY can die! Problem is: we would have to redo everything before the undo, it seems.

Can we learn Grants? (Grants is a light-based technique that pierces the enemy with hundreds of arrows of light. Slow casting time.)

Can we animate the Thirdnote with a spell?

Well, according to Radium, Load Game is a seer spell, so I assume that applies to these as well. But I'm really only here because I'm putting off doing my homework, so I may not be the most trusted source.

True, but I am talking about physically manipulating time, i.e. making 1 second a minute or 1 minute a second. Also, if we can manipulate time outside the world we are in, perhaps we can manipulate it into the pioneer project being launched? It may be a stretch, Radium may not like my idea, but we may be able to ressurect Robot Xion, and maybe even save everything PSO. ^_^

Does the catalog mention anything about when the academy is supposed to open?

Check Inventory.
Check HP.
Check L33tz4n's HP.
Have friendly - yet not paticularly essential to the game - conversation with L33tz4n.

Fine.

I hope that you will then learn that I am basically the heart of this thread and you are killing it yourself by ignoring me.

One last chance.

What category does Color Magic fit under?
Can we learn Time Magic?

Okay, I'll give Xion ONE MORE CHANCE. First, understand that PSO and that FFTA thing are fictional, this is fictional, but they're both different fictions. No PSO. No color magic or that light thing. This is your LAST CHANCE, Xion, before I am forced to remove this thread's large intestine. This is the WIN3.1 GAME. Nothing else. Just that.

okay then...

Can any doll spells be used to animate the Thirdnote?

Can any spell we learn manipulate time?

(The struck out question does not need to be answered, however if you wish to answer it, no matter how you want, even if you want it to speed time up just, go ahead. I will not hate your answer to this question.)

Infinite better not have been PMing a certain thing around to people who play this game.

Anyway, I'll fix/add to the list a bit:

TheOsamaEffect Level one Sux Magic spell.
Frenzeh Level two Sux Magic spell.
Illusion Level four Enchantment. Remember, most spells that don't do damage are Enchantments.
Solidity Physical effect.
Suxball Level one Sux Magic spell.
*.*Ball Level one-two Non-Elemental spell (Mages named this Non-Elemental before they discovered that they were wrong).
Mass Badhurt Level two Non-Elemental spell. Seriously, this is like a steriotype non-elemental spell.
Chaos Effect Level five Enchantment.
Rabies Disease.
Teleport/Town Gate Level one-three Enchantment.
Megawarp Level five Sux Magic spell.
Disable Plastic Springs Level one Sux Magic spell.
Summon Paint Remover During Christmas Level two Sux Magic spell.
Enchant Doll Level two Doll Magic spell.
Summon Danger Muffin Level five spell, only accessable by those skilled in Summoning and Sux Magic.
Telepathy Level four spell only accessable by those skilled in Seer Magic and Mindmagic.
Fysics Phalure Level five spell only accessable by those skilled in Enchantment and Glitching.

Can anybody on the party learn to make anything rabid? (i.e. the Rabid Pool and the Rabid Aligators)

If you say yes, then I know how to get past the Chaos Ward. ^_^

Simply find a rabid animal and let it chew on your arm for a bit. Remember though, rabid stuff only repels magic when the object isn't supposed to be rabid.

How to give an inanimate object rabies? Your guess is as good as mine.
