A Magic or Psi storm is a site to behold. With the initial
appearance of a furious hurricane
of the direst nature. It can
manifest within an hour from nowhere and move across the landscape at great
speed. The storm’s very nature seems twisted somehow. Alive with an angry
terrifying malefic sentient power.
The wind roars, lightning splits the sky in flashes of crimson or emerald
as if to tear it apart. The skies darken
to a sickening purplish black. Muddy rain rank with stench or fist sized black
hailstones bombard the landscape. Magic users or psionicists caught in these storms must find
protective areas. Otherwise exposure
causes terrible pain to them.
Doing 1 pt of subdual damage per hour until the storm passes. Magic items can also become unstable
during these storms activating on their own, burning out completely or even exploding.
Scholars have conjectured that as magic is used throughout
Ilysador its residue accumulates in the areas energy fields. When these fields
become to overwhelmed the area cleanses itself by creating or discharging this
magic energy through a magic or psi storm. During a storm all magic and psionics
become very unpredictable and acts as if an unstable magic region. The worst storms discharge powerful
magic effects in the location devastating the landscape. Major citi-states have
implemented many protective features to guard against these storms. Many deaths have occurred during these
horrid storms to both magic users and non magic users alike.
