So, it’s red is the weakest or unstable amount of magic and purple being heavily concentrated and stable, right?
Well the exposition will continue onto the next page, but I suppose it is worth clarifying a bit now. The light spectrum metaphor extends to the properties. Wavelength is the title of this page for a reason. Like light, Red is for long wavelengths and violet is for short. Now what does that mean when applied to the mana? Red mana is a slow churning ocean, while violet is raging river. Blue and green are pretty much lakes. To just cap off the water metaphor completely, a rough sea can be just as dangerous as the worst rapids.
I could say more, but what kind of story would this be if this information didn’t come out of the characters’ mouths?
Huh. So if Morty is mostly Mana, that raises the question of what exactly the Plague Bile is composed of. I have a feeling that’s going to be answered about the same time we figure out the origin of the Plague, and by that I mean I’m thinking this information will take a while to get here.
The runes with the translucent demon faces in the background are so beautifully foreboding. I especially like how Trevor’s comment on red falls right across the line of red runes itself, where the demon face is most prominent. Do you just make up the runes as random symbols, or are they Greek letters or something?
I didn’t realize this before, but Iggy has little tiny twig arms, just like Charlie.
The runes are in fact, a font I found. But, I don’t just type gibberish for them though. The runes on this page are actually the text of the rest of the page with the spaces taken out.
Suppose this would be a cool thing to decipher, but I’m not sure if it’s even possible with this font. I think there are some repeating symbols, and capital letters give a different symbol than lowercase.
Thank you Nick. You are on your way to becoming my favorite character. Right behind Kirk.
More explanation of the workings of magic! I wonder why stable magic is blue/green. Because it’s in the middle? Looking at the water metaphor in the comments, maybe it’s most commonly used because it has the most energy without being dangerously volatile (like violet) while still being controllable (unlike the “ocean” of red)?
Also hoping for an explanation on the difference between the rune magic Trevor uses and the elemental magic everyone else seems to use.
