Priests and Paladins of the Holy Order are infused with, and tap into the ever-present light around them. Because of this, with each successful attack, the Light invigorates the supplicant of the Light to be able to cast powerful spells to reap terrible havoc and dispense justice and protection on the battlefield.
Members of Silver Hand gain a special resource known as Holy Power. Players have a pool of 5 Holy Power to gain in the same vein as in-game. Each successful minor attack gives the caster +1 to their Holy Power, which they can use to spend on several abilities that are listed in the Order’s Handbook.
These are abilities you can use your Holy Power on.
Channel an Aegis of Light that protects you, and all allies behind you for the next enemy phase. Everyone behind you will take no damage in the next enemy phase. (The Dungeon Master places a marker behind the caster to dictate where the protective barrier will encompass)
Deal a devastating attack onto a selected target using a 1d8 roll. When the target is struck, the caster can select friendly targets around that enemy to split the same amount of damage done in health to their allies.
Consume all of your Holy Power stored, and use that power to protect yourself or an ally to mitigate damage equivalent to the amount of Holy Power spent. If the target absorbs less damage than the pain suppression blocks, they are healed for the difference. (Can be used in Enemy Phase)
Consume all of your Holy Power stored, and use those powers to gain clarity in combat, and in healing. For each Holy Power spent, you gain one player phase with +2 to your healing and damage spells.
Consume all of your Holy Power stored, and unleash the powers of the Holy Light upon those around you. You can deal Holy Power x2 in damage or healing separated by the choice of the user.
Members of the Magical Association of New Alterac gain mana as a resource. Each player gets a set amount of Mana at the beginning of an assignment or mission, and the base Mana pool is 10 Mana. Mana cannot be replenished passive during events, but it can be replenished using Mana potions that are earned as loot during events.
Each spell will cost a specific amount of Mana, and the more powerful the spell, the higher the Mana cost. These spells can be found in the Spellbook below.
These are abilities you can use your Mana on.
Exert a good amount of mana and energy to increase the effectiveness of your next attack or heal! Using this ability will double your damage or healing for one attack phase.
Select a target to become the target of a massive attack. Your target takes the brunt of your attack, and all other enemies take damage from excess magic. Your target takes the normal amount of damage that it would from one of your attacks, but in addition, 2 damage is dealt to all other enemies.
Use a small portion of your mana to create a protective barrier around yourself. Instead of attacking, you cast this protective spell over yourself to reduce damage taken. The barrier negates one damage, and it can be stacked if one does not take damage during the next enemy phase.
Interrupt your spellcasting to take away the fighting capability of an enemy target for one round. This can be by way of a polymorph, druidic roots, or anything that temporarily incapacitates the enemy.
Take an attack round to focus on your health, using your mana to create a makeshift way to heal your wounds. This is placed on one attack phase, and you regenerate one health for your current attack phase and three attack phases after it.
