"Yeah, okay, what's Mars like and how's your magic work."

Permalink

Mars: Arcologies! Light gravity! Lack of weather! Fashion, cuisine, art! He does keep an eye on how interested she seems, and switches to explaining his magic when she seems to want him to.

Permalink

She's not very interested in fashion cuisine and art compared to his magic. She does want to see the magic demonstrated.

Permalink

He wasn't really prepared to show it off today, but he has a casting of Hold Person prepared, if she'd like to see that.

Permalink

Sure why not.

Permalink

He explains that combat spells this weak sometimes fail to do anything and that if it does he'll show her something else, and casts.

Permalink

It doesn't do anything.

Permalink

Well, that's why he mentioned. He can do a spell that'll let her fly for fifteen minutes, he gets fewer of those a day but as a non-combat spell it's more reliable.

Permalink

"Ooh, that sounds amazing. I've been hang gliding but not really flying."

Permalink

"It's pretty great, yeah. Here." He casts again and holds his now-gently-glowing hand out for her to touch.

Permalink

Boop!

Permalink

She can fly! It's very intuitive.

Permalink

She floats out of the building and then goes up real real high.

Permalink

"It's safest to stay within tree height of the ground," Raafi calls after her before she gets too far, his own spell having already worn off.

Permalink

"I won't fall on anything destructible!" she calls down.

Permalink

"All right!" He finds a place to sit to wait for her to be done.

Permalink

She does eventually fall, swandiving into the ground and sitting up again grinning. "That was lovely!"

Permalink

"Mmhmm. One of my favorite things about being a cleric."

Permalink

"I don't really see why being a cleric lets you fly, that seems so unrelated."

Permalink

"Well, I'm a cleric of the god of travel specifically, that gives me access to some extra spells. Most clerics can't teleport, either, which is why you won't see the others coming back and forth between worlds very much - they can do it, but the spell for that is impossible to aim very well, we can end up as much as five hundred miles away from where we were trying to go, and I get to teleport the rest of the way but they'd have to walk if they got unlucky about it."

Permalink

"Wow, yeah, that'd take a whole week."

Permalink

"Longer, if you have to sleep, which most clerics do right now. I'm sure Limboites will be able to pick it up though."

Permalink

"The way you describe it sounds like you probably can't get the fun spells if all you want is the fun spells."

Permalink

"Mmhmm. Being a cleric can also be a lot of fun by itself, but it's really not for everyone."

Permalink

"How's it fun by itself?"
