Annex 2 - Magic Progress

As has been recorded in Chapter 3 - Magic, Paralogos are creatures who, with the aid of their owners/befriend, may grow into their own magical abilities surrounding their word. Here, it is recorded what a Paralogos needs to do in order to upgrade their abilities to the fullest potential!

This Annex provides 2 sources of information:
1) A resource for a "prediction" of what a Paralogos' magical abilities might present as.
2) A record for how a Paralogos is doing in their magical progression and an official noting down of that fact.

It has been observed that Paralogos upgrade their magical abilities to each tier by doing the following:

 

 

Requirements for Tier 1:

Drawing: At least 1 Colored Fullbody
(NEW: only non-"pixelart", see Earning Ink)

(+ information regarding their personality and tier 1 magic effect/ability)

There are 3 options for this:
A) You put the relevant information on your MYO submission when you first submit it. Your MYO will then automatically have the tier 1 info on their masterlist entry.
B) You retrospectively put the relevant information on your MYO submission and submit it to the Magic Progression Prompt.
C) You make a new reference sheet, submit it in this folder and submit it to the Magic Progression Prompt.

You are allowed to reuse art for option C.
Please note, however, that you won't earn any bonus ink for artwork that hasn't been made by yourself or has been reused.


Additionally, entries for all tiers must be unique, meaning you can't use 1 submission for multiple Paralogos or multiple submission types.
This means that a magic entry f.e. can't earn you a monthly prompt or wisdom bonus.


Possesses an attribute or minor effect loosely associated with their word.

Create or draw a reference of your Paralogos.
Include information regarding their personality and their tier 1 magic effect/ability.


This should be a reference sheet of your Paralogos, though a single colored fullbody is enough.
The description should have the remaining information regarding personality and magic.

 

 




Requirements for Tier 2 and Above:

Drawing: At least 1 Colored Fullbody
(NEW: only non-"pixelart", see Earning Ink)
with a detailed Background
& 1-2 sentences explaining what's happening in the image and/or what happened before/after


Writing: At least 800 words total.

Additionally, entries for all tiers must be unique, meaning you can't use 1 submission for multiple Paralogos.

Can spot and/or find it easily and is very good at using/cooperating/communicating with "it".

Draw or write about your Paralogos using or discovering their magical tier 2 ability.

Maybe they were in danger? Maybe they were relaxing and all of a sudden they noticed something! We want to hear how it happened.

Can repair/heal/fix their word focus.

Draw or write about your Paralogos using their magical tier 3 ability to heal/fix/repair an entity of their word focus.

Include a backstory as to how the entity got damaged and explain why the Paralogos wants to heal/fix/repair it.
(Optional) make the healed/fixed/repaired entity the charm/companion of your Paralogos or otherwise incorporate it into their backstory.



 


Can manipulate their word focus, including the ability to move/control it to some extent.

Draw or write about your Paralogos using their magical tier 4 ability to either manipulate or control an entity of their word focus.

If you chose manipulation: Why did they decide to manipulate it? Does it work or fail? How do they react to the result? Did something go wrong?
If you chose control: Why did they decide to control/move it? Does it work? Is your Para unsteady or does the entity even fight back? How do they react to the development? Does anything go wrong?



Can (temporarily) create/revive their word focus to some extent.

Draw or write about your Paralogos using their magical tier 5 ability to create or revive an entity of their word focus.

Why did they decide to create/revive it? Does it go seemingly well or are there any interferences/problems? Or does it even fail miserably? How does your Paralogos react to creating the entity? And how do they withstand the energy drainage? Was this done to help someone or something else?



Can temporarily shift their own appearance to something that more closely represents their word.

Draw or write about your Paralogos using their magical tier 6 ability to change their appearance.
Design one or more shifted appearances of your Paralogos.


Why did they decide to use it? Does it go well or is it too unstable? How do they react to their sudden change of appearance?
This is a seriously dangerous magical ability-- most Paralogos will only use it a small amount of times. What caused your Paralogos to use it?

 

 

You can optionally submit inquiries to the Magic Questions prompt to:
- ask magic-related questions
- get magic suggestions for your Paralogos.
- ensure your Paralogos' intended abilities will be approved (optional)

Magical Task submissions, when completed for each tier, give you a bonus flat +10 INK.


Note: Your submissions will only be accepted after you submitted it to this folder and submit it to the Magic Progression Prompt!


1) Upload the artwork to deviantart and submit it to the appropriate dA group folder (Magic folder)
2) Submit the artwork to the Magic Progression prompt.
Please note that you will additionally have to submit it to the Default Ink Rewards prompt in order to earn the default Ink rewards for the piece.
3) An admin will then approve your rewards and update the masterlist to reflect the new Magic tier.
