formal magic representation
« on: July 03, 2011, 07:54:38 PM »
You do not need a CoP to cast formal magic.  However, if you are thinking you might be attacked/ interrupted, a protective CoP would be helpful.

To cast a formal magic, you need to use a fishtail.  From the rules,

"The representation must also contain sigils, runes, or other symbols, fetishes, implements or props to indicate that a powerful magic is going to be cast."

In other words, a rope or a drawing in the dirt of a fishtail is not enough.  (yes, I know this changes your style)

Easy solutions: 
-Draw your fishtail and decorations (and even a circle around it) on a piece of cloth that you stand on for formal castings.
-bring a small bag full of flat marbles, feathers, bones, little figurines, etc to decorate your fishtail.
-Use a "pop circle" (window shade) without any of the mesh cut out... and paint in runes around the edge.

Please also remember to add the RP to formal.  Nobody should have to walk by and ask a marshal if they see formal casting or just random head bobbing.

Much of this is the same as it was in 8th (the need for props) and was ignored.  Basically we are asking our formal casters to step up their game and help the atmosphere be more oriented on immersion.

so the "pop circle". Where can you get one?

Also the pop circles without the mesh cut out is good for circles of harmony.
