My name is Zarasmata Lyffe

I am an apprentice wizard,
I conjure magic from my mind!
but when my Mana runs out I will begin to die

my current spells are:
read magic

I can also try to make up magic on the spot, but it will drain my mana a lot faster, and the spell might be unreliable

It is my duty to warn the human king of the coming of the flame wraiths

but this gate stands in my way, what can I do?

(suggest actions for Zarasmata!)

do you have enough mana for a pain killer spell? would be wise to use that and carefully remove the arrow.
No. 298388 ID: adfa55

No, no, no... we need a spell that lets us regain mana, badly. Like maybe necromancy to drain the life from targets and increase your mana? We're on a deadly quest where we've faced a number of lethal situations already, we have to make good use of all our options.
No. 298423 ID: 1854db

Sit down by a tree, calm down as much as you can, and cast a pain-dulling spell on yourself. Then remove the arrow, and cast a minor healing spell.

Afterwards, if you have any mana at all, become as calm as possible and cast a spell that will make you hidden- camouflage or invisibility- then rest.

Shit. Spiders. Giant spiders. It's time to run again. See if you can get away from the webbed area. Go back to territory you're already familiar with, if possible. We need to find another safe spot to rest.
No. 299726 ID: 73078c

whats so dark about draining the life of another?
what is it called when you eat the meat of an animal or the flesh of a fruit? a living being is consumed for nourishment.

It is only evil if you use it for evil, say consuming the life of your underlings or innocents.

Anyways, while your HP is slightly better, your mana is drained, to the point where you are risking mana starvation... while this does not look like a safe place to rest, we have little choice. You must begin meditating right now to recover mana. If you can, don't rest fully, just enough to leave this place.
No. 299743 ID: adfa55

Your magic is currently so low it may kill you, your health is weak and there are spiders after you. Your choice seems to be between becoming such a dark warlock and death, choose wisely.

if I were ever to use such dark magic, I would appear tainted in the eyes of my own kind and would never be able to return home

on top of that it is only possible to drain mana from other living things that have it, like fellow wizards

unless these spiders are magical in some way, I would receive no benefit from draining them, and likely only weaken myself from the casting
No. 300372 ID: 7aedd2

Okay so since you can't combat these spiders in any magical way and you're not exactly one for brute force, it's time to continue walking. At the moment the spiders seem to be small enough that you might crush one under food or staff, but if you start seeing bigger... probably best to retreat back to the fort and down the ladder to previously cleared out areas.
No. 300380 ID: 07416a

Dude, these things are the size of cats. Nonmagical spiders do not grow that big, ever. The largest nonmagical spider is about a foot long in LEGSPAN. The BODY of these dudes is larger than that. Drain or die.
No. 300404 ID: 1854db

This is a fantasy realm, dude. I think what she means is, they have to be able to cast spells, not just be something created via magic. Draining will do nothing. We do have a weapon, though.

Get to stabbing. First, kill the spider coming up behind you and to your left.
No. 300412 ID: d833e0

A true spider would not act so boldly. These are clearly a magical threat.

Attempt to flee for now. If they stray beyond the bounds of this webbed- up area THEN it might be time to fight.
No. 300552 ID: f0e3ae

Actually, the Goliath birdeater spiders do... but they shouldn't attack people. And why are they acting in a group? and coming off of their webs? those are behaviors of perhaps magical spiders... problem is, if they AREN'T he would die from mana shock just for trying... his only option is to flee slowly.

Well IF a giant spider bigger than you is sufficiently magical to drain with that previously mentioned dark magic, AND the thing doesn't want to talk, then let's drain it.

No. 302978 ID: f0e3ae

so, when you say outcast to your people do you mean "burnt at the stake on sight" or do you think you could explain "I was about to be eaten by a giant spider and had to do that or die, and it was only a monster"

Try to talk to it, but if its just gonna try to eat you then your choice is outcast or dead...
outcast wouldn't be too disasterous... live amongst the humans, they can't sense this... find a nice cute human girl, have some babies....

Or you could do something sufficiently heroic that all people will know your name and accept your explanation...

Don't appeal to its altruism. Make a deal with it. Suggest that it COULD eat you since you ARE admittedly weak, or it could offer you peace to rest, in which case you can be of later use to it by using your magic to give it... whatever spiders want. I don't know, think of something that you think would interest it. Summon herds of elk, rid them of fleas, make local easily-trappable-insects grow bigger and juicer. Something.

He seems legit. But, y'know, not at all. I think you need to continue sweet-talking it. I think you MIGHT be able to convince it that it's in its best interest to let you live (it's smart enough to understand the basics of deception), but I don't think you've convinced it.

mmm, it might be trying to deceive us... I wouldn't drain it now unless it attacks.
I recall that before you didn't sleep, but meditated, if elves only meditate, then you are in a good position as you will not be caught unaware.

We should cement in the spider the notion we are up for it and that it can gain more by dealing with us fairly.
