Magic Wood is a Law Spell with a casting chance of 70% or Mana Cost of 30. Its Mega-spell is Magic Forest which allows up to 10 magic trees to be seeded for you and your allies’ protection. However, should the tide of battle require more offensive tactics then an army of Elves may be created by transmuting the trees into the nimble archers with the Talisman Aelfscyne or, alternatively, a sea of Gooey Blobs can be created from the trees with the Talisman Garivano. Thus, Magic Woods are a powerful and versatile creation that can be slotted into many Wizards’ plans and a source of new opportunities through their ability to give new spells.
So in front of the mighty walls of Tiryns it was that Demokritos had shown the strength of his craft. And a mighty work of craftsmanship it was for no alchemist or herbalist was he but that of lessor stock to them; a mere unproven and untrained Gifted who was thus unworthy to carry the title of Egregoroi. And yet this Gifted had done that which was not his to do with staff and with will and with exertion to the brink of losing his mind by bringing forth a vessel of mana. However, this vessel was not of stone or metal, and had not had mana transferred within it; it was a tree grown from the very soil beneath his feet and the mana within it came from the elements around it. Thus, it did protect with magic that which lay near to its branches as a warrior maiden may protect her mother. And he called this tree ‘Sanctuary’ and stepped into it as if it was his own attire and did become one with it. Remaining protected, safe, until the tree did wither from the burden of mana flowing into its ward Demokritos did then stand in its dust with the endless mana desiring slain and blessed with a new power.
