A Look At Magic

A Look At Magic -

In their recent newsletter - Codemasters has talked a little about how their very innovative magic system will work.  Here is the excerpt:

Dragon Empires has a unique magic system that gives the players a lot of choice in how they use their magic powers. As you learn spells in DE you attach the ones you want to use to magic items you carry (up to around five spells per item). Each item can change how the spell behaves and so no two magic users will ever have quite the same powers. For example, if you have a fireball you might attach it to a magic staff that gives the fireball greater range (but at the cost of more energy). At the same time you might take an area effect spell and attach it to a wand which reduces the range, damage and recast time. In this way you could have some good long-range firepower with a back-up spell you could switch to that you can chain-cast in an emergency. The flexibility of the system means players can create unique magic users with an individual style by combining different items with different spells.
