Hello I'm Neorice.
It's Free Magical Real Estate!
So in this world "wizards" are Free Magic users with spellbooks in order to save energy?
Hello you're Neorice.
Hello, I'm Dad.
So vancian magic is made so D&D casters can break reality on a regular basis without passing out every 5 minutes? Huh, never thought of that
Cue a Free Magic user covered in tattoos that function as his/ her 'spellbook'.
Neorice you're hello
Hi, Iâm Elfo!
Very interesting, getting some HxH self-limiting abilities vibes here
Ironically, the metagame for FREE magic users seems to be all about how they RESTRICT their powers to make them more widely usable
No joke, I had a character with a very very similar concept to that at some point; albeit I decided to bin him. xD
Feels to me like a lead-up to a reveal that Spirit and Pandemonium are really just unconcious self-restrictions.
So a Free Magic user can basically turn themselves into a Pandemonium magic user (limited to a narrow domain, negligible energy cost) if they like?
Will we ever see Melany and her grandpa again? I liked those two.
Make senses. I'm looking where this is going. And it explains more things in Burks story. The mage baron feels more exceptional now.
And free magic also means a weakness against some extra pandemonium, like the Midas dude.
@Brilliand: Speculation: Maybe being a "free" magic user, capable of imposing your own limits, comes at the cost of reproducing a naturally limited user's ability would give much weaker results.
Kind of like low-level vs high-level languages in programming.
