Well, I'm not sure how to structure this because I have a lot of opinions on the matter. But here we go.

Jye's handy dandy magical guide to fixing anti-magic
[/color][/font][/i][/b]

Step 1: Make official anti-magic lore due to it being possibly the most controversial thing on the server, it deserves it. That way in fights or arguments staff need to break up they can point to the official rules surrounding it.

Step 2: Anti-magic should be roleplayed like magic itself instead of someone just drawing a rune and BANG everyone looses their abilities because that's dumb. e.g *The weathered old man brought his hands up, pointed towards the cocky mage that stood across from him, charging a bolt of flame above his open palm. A grayish tint seemed to fill the air in front of the older man, as the mage launched the fire bolt forward. The bolt of flames was reduced to but a handful of sparks as it flew through the air towards the old man, not enough to catch his clothes alight* This brings us to step 3.

Step 3: Anti-magic shouldn't make one completely immune to all magic or nullify all abilities- This exact mindset is what causes people to try to work around anti-magic and cheat the system with player-made races that go 'Duhurur It'S aN iNnATe AbIlITy nOt MaGIc'. Instead anti-magic should simply /weaken/ spells, and anti-mages should get just as exhausted from casting as normal mages/spell casters. This creates an interesting dynamic where large and fair magic battles can take place while giving either party a fair chance of winning. Because with anti-magic runes people don't suffer any drawbacks.

Step 4: Get rid of anti-magic runes for everyone besides actual anti-mages (Who can't cast other types of magic). Honestly they don't make sense. If you want to fight/hunt mages then get an anti-mage on your side to drastically change the tide of battle. Also make anti-magic runes only dispel things that hit the surface it's drawn on- No radius effects.

Step 5: But Jye- If anti-magic doesn't completely nullify all magic, what does it do? Well. It would weaken magic depending on the strength of both casters. For example a fireball would be reduced to nothing if met with an anti-magic ball of equal size. This means- Whoever started casting first wins, and if the anti-mage is distracted then the mage still has a chance to cast their spell.

Especially those people who are like "Oh, well it's my anti-magic and I have it so that I can cast spells but you can't!" It's annoying and illogical.

The only "anti-magic" I use is a spell called "Horos". It's not necessarily anti-magic, it's a spell that instantly dispels the selected spell. Such as a ward, fireball, et cetera.

I remember anti-mages, I applied (back when race-locking was a thing) to be one and got accepted, it was a pretty cool race, I liked it. Though, anti-magic is now overused to the point where a mage can be very easily countered just by pulling an anti-magic rune out of nowhere.

I Would Like it Better if BOTH People, Including the Caster and the People being Casted on, Are unable to Use Magic, So they Just Have to Punch the Ever living Bejeebus out of Each other.

This has been taken directly from "Magic Theorendum Vol 7: Circles and Sources"

"Those whom wish to defend their own residence from magic anomalies, or by hostile intent, need only draw a circle with the character for prison within 4 feet of each other character on the inside of the circle, and place another circle between and under each character, binding the inner circle with a Sealing Star connecting each second character, but without fail between. Sources for a Magic Diffuse Spell, such as this circle, do not make magic impossible while inside it's effect range, but dispel it while a caster's spell ranges outside their aura field. A linkage of a source must be linked to keep the effect, but successive circles cannot break rule of soul limits. Sources for even simple and tiny circles can easily break soul limits, causing the caster to use an external source, in most cases."

From "Magic Theorendum Vol 2: Limits"
"Caster's magic cannot exceed their power of soul, in successive and maintained flows of spells, if caster makes any new connections, conjures, or other all bonds shall break, and caster won't be capable of casting until their soul recovers from injuries. Soul Injuries such as Limit Exceed may take years to fully recover."


If we could have better Anti-Magic, and magic in general, on the server, I think it would be very beneficial to play.

If Anti-Magic was Used more as a security system, and Less as an Excuse to Beat people into a Pulp, That would be Nice.
