That reminds me, anyone trying out alchemist runs?
Ritual magic? No thanks, I’m trying better living through chemistry!
Of course, it isn’t quite clear what the limits of potions are in this game.
Get injured? Health potion. Need to Get away? Smoke bomb. Someone annoying you by breathing? Fire bomb.
Such a bummer that you can’t take potions and combat.
Think about it, if you could take both you could be essentially Batman. Face punching and a potion for every occasion. That would be neat.
Another interesting take would be a human who relies on control magic.
Now the in game lore is that illusions fall under control magic, so logically PCs who aren’t kitsune can break out the illusions, so a legal and useful application of control magic.
And who is going to expect control magic from the campus token human?
For that matter, control magic is legal on animals, if I remember my lore right. Why doesn’t the game let us have the option to unleash the control magic on the hellhounds/manticore/hydra?
Make a hydra head attack the others, or imagine the look on your suitemates faces when they deal with their hellhounds to find you giving yours a belly rub and saying he’s a good boy.
“I’m naming him Sparky, our dorm is obviously pet friendly. If anyone says anything Sparky is a service animal to help me with my PTSD, since this place keeps trying to kill me.”
Or how about using control magic on the pet dragon? “It’s way to early for this! Quiet!!!” and then to everyone’s surprise the dragon calms down.
