Mercy's Trial has launched!

Grasping at a sliver of hope, a group of friends undertake a perilous quest last attempted thousands of years ago . . . a quest to summon dragons.

  1. Gday!
    Mercy’s Trial awesome! AHHHHHH
    It felt wayyy too short because it was so good!
    Two typos that I noticed: (very slight spoilers)
    -The new light spell Augum knows is initially referenced as 3rd degree, but is later called a 6th degree spell.
    -Towards the end, Augum says “Awe and Breath of the Dragon”, when it should be “Awe and Bluster”.
    Just minor things that I noticed, they dont take away from the story at all.
    Ahhh! (Big spoilers)!
    Spirit of the Dragon + Frenzy +Centarro will be awesome!
    I loved the direction the plot took, and Spirit of the Dragon sets up for a hilarious prank on everyone back in the academy! Also, will Leera’s alchemy elective ever be useful?
    E.g. Stamina refill potions? Because that’d be awesome and a great way for her to connect with her mother.
    Oh and will everyone else learn Centarro?

    • (SPOILERS, be warned)
      Continuing on, I love your story progression: each book seems to mature, as do the characters. It actually feels like a part of their lives.
      And Spirit of the Dragon is perfect! The phrase is so cool, and the pose is awesome! It’s exactly as a legendary spell should be. I can already imagine the Canterrans quaking in fear!

      • Thank you for the typos report! I will have that fixed for the next time the book needs updating :)

        The school class stuff is tricky, but I hope to implement those skill sets more in future books.

        And glad you enjoyed it so much :)

    • Oh, and sorry to bother you, but when are you going to update the lore and spells page? I was thinking that you were going to wait a couple months for people to read Mercy’s Trial, then add spoilers.
      And then some miscellaneous ideas (I don’t expect them to be added, I just think they’re cool).:
      -Simul: Speed of the Dragon (just throwing a random name out).
      -Teleport and the First Offensive: you teleport to where your First Offensive hits.
      -Summon Weapon extension/Simul: Claws of the Dragon.
      -You can summon another sword in your opposite hand, and use the flat edge as a shield (Mirror of the Dragon). (Slight Spoilers) Leera didn’t seem to know as many spells as Bridget and Augum, and I think dual-wielding would suit her better.
      -Summon Weapon extension/Arcaner Simul:
      -Your next sword slash creates a blade of your element that travels forward, slicing through enemies. For bows, it increases the size and speed of your next arrow by a significant amount, and makes them explode upon hitting something.
      -Telekinesis Extension:
      -You can surround your feet and hands in a bubble of telekinesis, increasing your strength and adding slight protection. This means you can punch through shields without injury if you have Strength active, or if your telekinesis is particularly powerful.
      -Simul: Fury of the Dragon.
      -Any Offensive, Push, and Slam. Emits from your mouth instead of your hands. (SPOILER): Maybe requires Spirit of the Dragon?
      -Simul: Majesty of the Dragon (slight spoilers)
      -Emit a constant Fear aura. Drains your stamina, emits at 0.75x your casting degree strength. For example, if Augum could cast Fear at 10th degree strength, his fear aura would be a strong 7th degree.

      • I love those ideas, a few of which I’ve even already considered but haven’t implemented. Thanks for taking the time to write them out; I’ll pore over them and see if I can help improve the current system :)
