Hi it’s me FJ, you know the drill by know, this won’t take a lot of your time.
In the world of Heavenly Bodies, there are tree different types of magic’s.
Defense, Elementai and Proficiency magic.
Today we dive into the different proficiency’s
Usually when student’s reach their first quarter of a century, around 500 years of age, if they can afford it, their parent’s ask them to choose a proficiency of study, studies take around a hundred years to complete, and those that are good enough opt to continue to practice their field of study in the real world.
Proficiency’s have to be paid for, and usually an interview takes place before a school decides to accept a student. A committee reviews portfolios and decides based on background, diversity, and aptitude.
Elementai studies can also be part of a proficiency, thus there are those that wish to delve deep into the mysteries of light and dark crystals. But this are highly coveted spots, family, religion and accolades play a big part in a student’s acceptance. There are four ivy league schools in Gliese that teach elementai proficiency’s, they fall under the supervision of the pastoral of magic.
Heavenly Bodies releases somewhere in the middle of 2020, version 1.0.5 includes 8 proficiency’s, but more will be added in the future. Currently HB is at version 1.0.3, after re-writes it will move up to 1.0.4 and after several read through’s and corrections HB moves to it’s final version and is ready for release.
Now we dive into the proficiency’s.
Black magic deals with the death and resurrection, necromancy and such. Commonly seen as the left hand path of magic, death and rebirth are it’s main point’s of focus. Black magic is taken seriously by witch doctors and morticians. Black magic is commonly used to solve crimes as negative energy flows through it, and it can show past images of those that had serious ill intent.
Anything that has to do with health, for stamina and health or making bombs. Slimes are the basis for creating any type of potion. Not a single potion master is able to make a complete health potion as a potion cannot used to cure instead stamina potions are a plenty – that is to say cure does not exists in Heavenly Bodies
Commonly associated with holy acts, including put not limited to the human soul.
Just like it’s name say’s, by verbalizing notes one cast spells. A niche among the proficiency’s.
Those that wish to control other’s and be able to read minds through subtle cues in body language, this proficiency requires a certain type of fines.
Tame and speak to animals, your elementai dictates what type of animal you’re able to speak to.
This proficiency hones your green thumb. You’ll become an expert at growing plants, green proficiency favors the introverted, and some are even able to speak to the earth spirit directly. Green proficiency does not apply to earth elementai.
To be able to tell the future just by looking at tea leaves, to use the tarot and predict future event’s, this is the study of divination.
And well that’s it for today, I just quickly went over each and every single one today, but you’ll be able to read more and understand proficiency’s as you go through the story in Heavenly Bodies.
Thank you for reading, see you next weekend. 🙂
