Aquamancy is magic that involves the manipulation of the water element. Those born under the runic element of water would use aquamancy as magic. Aquamancy focuses most on purifying and supporting, however there are some attack spells. Offensive aquamancy magic tends to be mostly concentrated or forced water or ice magic. Minor elemental manipulation usually involves effecting the water and moisture around you.

1. Some Possible Minor Elemental Manipulations

Please note that this is nowhere near a complete list of all the things that are possible with minor elemental manipulations of the water element. This is just a short list to aid you by giving you examples on how minor elemental manipulations work so that you can come up with your own ideas.

ManipulationEffectRange & AreaRestrictions
Increase Liquid Amount With this manipulation you are trying to manipulate the liquid, whether it be a potion, water, ale, or any other liquid in a container, so that there is more of it and thus it lasts longer. For example, with this you could manipulate the water in your jug when it is half empty to slowly refill itself. For every pint of water or teaspoon of other liquid you want you will need to spend 2 SA. self You can only increase up to 6 pints of liquid
Force Perspire With this manipulation you are attempting to force yourself to naturally sweat earlier than you would normally. This could be something you would want to do to cool yourself down faster to prevent the effects of being hot. You simply need to spend 1 SA to induce sweating. self N/A
Control Currents With this manipulation you are attempting to control the water currents in a body of water, either to help you swim or float faster in a direction or to bring something further up or downstream to you. For every 6 feet or 1 area block of a body of water that you want to direct the current of, you need to spend 2 SA. This can increase your movement in water by +2 area movement. self Can manipulate up to 10 area blocks of water
Prevent Perspiration With this manipulation you are attempting to use your control over water to prevent your target from sweating as normal and thus suffering from heat exhaustion. To initiate this control you need to spend 2 SA, and 1 SA for every round you wish to keep up this control. 4 hex, affecting 1 target N/A
Aided Swimming With this manipulation you are attempting to use water to help you stay afloat and swim faster. For every round or minute you wish to do so you need to spend 2 SA, and for every area movement rate increase of 1 you need to spend 5 SA. self Can only increase the movement rate up to +5, for up to 1 hour
Chill Water With this manipulation you are attempting to make the water beneath or next to you colder. For every 10 degrees you wish to decrease the water’s temperature, you need to spend 2 SA point. You can spend 2 SA point for every round you wish to maintain the area of water’s temperature. This can be useful if you are wanting to freeze already cold water so that you can walk on it. 1hex, affecting 1 area block You can only bring a water's temperature to just below freezing (30 F) for up to 1 hour
Negate Load Penalty While Swimming With this manipulation you are attempting to use the water to help you to carry a heavy load, making the load irrelevant to you while swimming. Doing so, you would not have to worry about your heavy load preventing you from swimming. You will need to spend 2 SA point per block traveled to use this effect. self N/A
Pull Water With this manipulation you are attempting to pull a small portion of water from a nearby water source while you are not in it. To pull up to 3 cubic feet of water, you will need to spend 2 SA points. Any water source up to 6 area blocks away N/A
Rain Dance With this manipulation you are attempting to make it rain in an area. With every 1 SA spent, you increase the chance for rain by 10. entire area N/A
Make Mud With this manipulation you are attempting to turn an area of dirt into mud, making it so that it would slow down anything that steps onto it by 2 battle movement or area movement rate. For every 1 hex or 3×3 feet of dirt you wish to transform you need to spend 2 SA points.

2. The Two Iconic Symbols of Aquamancy

In the elemental magic of Aquamancy, there are two iconic symbols. They are the Sea and the Glacier. These symbols are said to be the very source of aquamancy magic, even though like all elemental magic in Nor'Ova, aquamancy is conducted not by incantations or potions, but by manipulating the element of water to produce magical effects.

These symbols are therefore nothing more than just symbols, representatives of the two opposing forces of magic, the positive force and the negative force. Magic as a whole is neither evil or good. It is simply a neutral force. Society doesn't judge based on what magic is used, only on how it is used and for what reason. Therefore, despite whether or not certain spells may be associated with what is considered the good or the dark side of magic, the use of spells has no effect on your alignment unless it is used for a wholly good purpose, or for a whole evil purpose.

In the elemental magic of Aquamancy, the Sea symbolizes the light aspect while the Glacier represents the dark aspect.

3. Environmental Effects on Aquamancy

Due to the fact that elemental magic is elemental, the environment can play an effect on the magic you are casting. If the environment has a larger amount of your element present, your magic will be stronger. If the environment has a lesser amount of the element you are casting, your element will be weaker. If the element present in your environment is about average, then there would be no change.

In the case of aquamancy:

  • In watery places or places where there is a lot of water element present - such as swamps or when its raining - aquamanacy effects are increased by x 1.25
  • In aerid places such as deserts, aquamancy effects are decreased by x 0.75.
