I have had some thoughts about the magic that will see action in BM...
Magic will have the usual effects as in other fantasy RPG

will the magic system be kinda like ff, where blizzard, blizzara, blizzaga? other wise, some cool spells, Gaia, Quake, cure(ailments),summon(creatures), and maybe perhaps slow time(where like ur bar goes up extra quick :)smile.gif)

u could use strings and user input, but thatd be complex. id just have spells in the ancient language that are set, and ur knoledge of the ancient language is like ur "spell points", so the more words u know, the more spells u'll be able to cast. :)smile.gif

You may want to take a look at the spells in Ultima V for a few ideas -- check the "Effects" collumn in the spell list.

I like your idea of being vulnerable during the actual spell casting :)smile.gif  Ultima V does not have that. <_<dry.gif

it would be neat if certain weapons/items had effects on how much prepation certain spell types took and their strength...and you could always use the expr( command to add together strings of spell effects and set criteria on what would fail or suceed (custom spells)

why isn't my post level discription (coding knite, omnimaga fan, ect.) displayed?

Kevin made it that if you have over 2 posts..you can change that title to whatever you want so the old descriptions don't show up anymore.  Go to Setup-Edit Profile Info and it should be the first thing called custom member title.

the member titles has been replaced with level up system (at the bottom of your post count/join date/member ID) and as tenniskid said you can change your title at 2 posts
