#21

Should I add that to dark magic or to elemental? Because lightbending should have a place too


#22

Some of my faves: Healing magic, seeing/future-telling, speaking to animals.


#23

Ooh, yes. Those cannot be forgotten


#24

The ability to speak and or to summon animals.

I rather think summoning is an interesting one


#25

Put in dark. I agree lightbending should have a spot

Solar beam - creates an intense beam of of light that can vaporize anything.

Healing - duh

Eye of light - originally eye of Kul. Replaces the user eye with that of a light god and allows one to see 7 seconds into the future.


#26

This one is only possible if your light god sees the future. I have a special goddess of prophecy, so you’d have to name it after that. I guess it depends per universe


#27

True true. My goddess can’t see the future unless she has a vessel.


#28

Boop! We need more magic


#29

Most bizarre ability I have come up with: person suffers from bipolar disorder, every time his depressive mood arises he can conjure up a rainstorm and anyone who comes into contact with a raindrop will experience his depression and the way they will die.


#30

Uhh… do you have a fancy name for it? xP


#31

Electrokinesis?


#32

Oh wow, I


#33

A character in my WIP has the power of fundamentally understanding how the universe works. This is fun because he gets to be the smartest guy in the room, and therefore a sarcastic know-it-all, but I fear it makes him too powerful, because he immediately knows every enemy’s plans and weaknesses. I need to give him some sort of “Kryptonite,” but I don’t know what yet.


#34

I don’t give them names, maybe just call it Heavy Rain


#35

Like a weather (elemental magic) tied to a person’s emotions


#36

#40

According to Paul “Muad’Dib” Atreides, that power comes with the complete lack of an interesting or fulfilling life because nothing can excite or stimulate you - a powerful narrative weakness.
