Time Elementals

Postby Tal'Rasha » Thu Sep 19, 2013 7:11 pm

Greetings Lions,

Some of you may already know me but a brief introduction may be in order. My name is Tal'Rasha, ward of Caras Estarwe. I am an umbral, a Gryphon and a Bard.

As a trainee in the Elemental arts, I wish to know how all elementals (common or uncommon) function on this plane and work to study them so that I might not just better know them, but better combat them if they threaten ourselves and our allies, of which I know the Gryphons are proud to count you among one of the best. I had heard that you recently defeated some Time elementals which were plaguing you and your lands and I'd like to ask if you have any infromation on any capabilites, abilities, traits and indeed weaknesses that you noticed during your encounters with them.

I realise that for some, or perhaps many of you this is a senstive subject; wars are rarely won without great loss and for those who did lose someone during this time, my greatest sympathies and humblest apologies if this causes you any distress. May thier patterns rest safe and well.

Yours, in knowledge


Tal'Rasha

I remember they could move very fast. That's right, isn't it?

I don't have any notes or nodhing at present, but I recall dhat dha Halt spell eidher harmed or killed some, sleep did dha same for odhers. Some caused people to fall into a deep sleep widh dheir attacks, and odhers could halt you briefly. Dha white elementals were dheir overlords and, predictably, very powerful. Black ones, and black and white ones, were stronger dhan dheir red and yellow pards, some able to use magic.

Dhey also held a number of odher elementals under dheir dhrall; specifically mud and mist elementals, dhat I can recall at dhis moment.

I hope dhis is helpful.

Lio - yes, they were able to very briefly make themselves move incredibly quickly. It was like we were all moving through jelly whilst they were sprinting. They used it to position themselves amongst our lines, and they used it to kidnap (at the time Princess) Lenia.

The different colour symbols they had on their cheeks gave an idea of what they were capable of or weak against, but I don't have that list.

From an old Lions packup:

A Guide to Spotting Time Elementals
Based on the notes of Alastair Moira
This guide is intended to allow the best possible use and distribution of our resources when facing the Time Elementals and their forces. Time Elementals can be identified by hour-glass shaped markings on their faces. These markings are in a variety of colours, and with each colour comes a different speciality on their part, and on ours, a different way to defeat them. These include, but are not necessarily limited to:

Blue
Strike with enchanted blows. Vulnerable to mind effects. Sleep spells usually fatal.

Red
Occasionally cause those they strike to fall asleep. Injured or killed by halting. Immune to mind effects.

Yellow
Occasionally halt those they strike. Injured or killed by halt. Immune to mind effects.

White
Elemental Lords. Can use High Magic. Their strikes can paralyse, or halt or cause the injured party to sleep. Immune to ranged and mind effects.

Black
Can use Shadow Magic. Usually cast Mage Armour on themselves. Immune to ranged spells and ignore normal blows. Resilient.

Blue & Black
Include enchanters, ritualists and elementalists. Can vocalise.

Grey/Silver
Paralyse with a blow. Elementalists with high Shadow Magic. Favour casting the Halt spell. Can cast innately, without words.

The Time Elementals have under their control a variety of different elemental creatures and beings, again with different abilities and vulnerabilities. These include - but as far as we know are not limited to:

Mist
Bear cold weapons, and freeze with a blow. Vulnerable to mind effects.
Fire
Bear flaming weapons that ignore armour. Vulnerable to mind effects.
Water
Magic damages these less than usual. Bear cold weapons that ignore armour.
Mud
Ignore normal weapons. Deal enchanted blows that can strike down or crush the target. Very strong, and take a long time to be beaten down.
