    Mana Surges

    Mana Surge

    Betrayed by their own magic, death is far too common in younger mages. Mana surges are deadly to those who cannot release or control their mana, and has taken the lives of many. The rapid exhaustion and immediate reclaiming of mana, via potions or other methods, begins a shutdown of magical containment and focus, the threshold weakening greatly with each attempt. Unless immediate precautions are taken, it can severely injure or kill the caster.

    Due to the lack of knowing better, lack of control, or the disbelief of wieldable power, less experienced mages are usually the casualties reported. Thus, young mages, especially those starting training, should be monitored carefully when given potions, and taught at length of the dangers of surges.


    Symptoms vary greatly depending on many differing factors; the skill of the mage, type of magic, number of potions used, etc. The most common, however, were migraines, moderate to intense general pain (usually in the main casting focus - Hands, feet, arms, etc), fatigue, dizziness, and aggression. Physical symptoms according to elemental magic type are as follows, but are not limited to:

    • Heat: Sweating, overheating, heat in extremities, burns around focus area
    • Frost: Chills, trembling, frost around focus area, frostbite in extremities
    • Earth: Stiffness in joints, sinking into the ground, feet petrified in earth
    • Electricity: tingling under the skin, muscle spasms, shaking, static shock, full electrocution
    • Air: Shortness of breath, wind gusts, bubbling under the skin, air in blood
