Philosophies

Necromancy
Spoiler:
General Description: Control over spiritual forces and the dead.

Some Base Powers (That all Shrews could learn to use):

Soulforce: Main energy type behind Necromancy, This mutation of Navitas is the life-force of a Shrew, and has a high destructive factor and is one of the purest, if not the purest, form of Spiritual/Soul energy there is. Once Necromancy is learned, a Shrew can manipulate their or other Shrew's life-force/Soulforce. It can be used in conjuction with other spiritual energies, or even sometimes as a filler for them. It can also be used to degrade, drain, or heal a person's soul/life-force.

Undead Resurrections: Can summon/animate undead liches in the form of soldiers, mages, and the occational dragon liche all depending on rank and level of the summoner.

Soul Tracking: Allows a Necromancer to track beings based on their spiritual levels and energies, etc. Distance of tracking depends on rank.

Teliology
Spoiler:
General Description: Manipulation of the Mind and Reality.

Some Base Powers (That all Shrews could learn to use):

Telekinesis: Power to control inanimate objects/beings with ones mind. Can also create forces of attack which are much like higher forms of physical attacks.

Telepathy: Ability to enter other peoples minds and also control/exhert mental energy.

Conscious Perimeter: This is the ability to expand ones consciousness or mind over a larger distance than their own personal space. This happens upon a plane called the Dream World, which a plane made up of everyone's mind linked together. Every person who has this ability is on a certain frequency depending on their power. There are hundreds of different frequencies, and thus the chance of two Shrews being on the same frequency is highly unlikely. However, if you are high ranked enough (Harbinger or higher at least) a Shrew can actually control which frenquency they are on, and at the highest levels, even cover multipule frequencies. When two Shrews are on the same frequency, and their Conscious perimeter's cross eachother, a battle of wills happens, and whoever's mental drive is weaker will lose, and they will suffer severe damage until they lower their Conscious Perimeter, otherwise they will risk being knocked out or suffering permenant damage. The Conscious Perimeter is otherwise used for tracking and the like, as they can usually read the minds of all those who are within the perimeter easily, and can also see anything that happens otherwise within the perimeter, allowing them a wider view of 'vision' so to speak.

Reality Distruption: Allows the user to be able to disrupt reality to the point that they can create permanent damage in the reality of whatever it touches. The higher the rank, the more destructive.

Mysticism
Spoiler:
General Description: Manipulation of Photogess, Light, and Holy energies.

Some Base Powers (That all Shrews could learn to use):

Light Manipulation: Allows user to be able to bend light, and also focus it from almost any source. Can be used to energize, heat, illumenate, or create rank limited illusions/invisibility.

Holy Influence: User has the ability to purge a variety of effects from themselves or other objects. Purging and purification depending of rank can even effect biological and magic influences/effects.

Occlutiology
Spoiler:
General Description: Manipulation of Shaddow, Dark energies, Shadows, and Evil powers.

Some Base Powers (That all Shrews could learn to use):

Shaddow: Shadow/Darkness mutation of Navitas, this energy is extremely versitle. It first and formost is extremely defensive, about to shield the user from even strong energy attacks, depending on rank, and can also harden itself into solid objects which hardnesses depend on rank. From there, it can be dispersed into smoke like energy, which also gives the user some shading ability. Shaddow's second attribute is its corruptability. Being a dark mutation of Navitas, it tends to darken all around it very quickly, almost as though it drains the light from the area. This effect is often most evedent by its user, who must continually battle against it to remain unchanged from using it.

Shadow Manipulation: Has the power to control shadows, and also transform them into solid objects and weapons. Also can use them as transportation.

Evil Corruption: Can be used to bend whatever it touches to the user's will, depending on rank. Emotional influence.

Chronology
Spoiler:
General Description: Manipulation of Speed and Time.

Some Base Powers (That all Shrews could learn to use):

Chronoforce: Mutation of Navitas which has the ability to bend speed and time around it. Physically manifested, it can slow/speed objects or create areas of increased or decreased speed/time. It also has the ability at higher ranks to create time distortions, which have the ability to move a person through time/space, allowing for teleportation like movement.

Speed Manipulation: Ability to increase or decrease speed of objects or self, or even opponents, depending on rank. Total amount of decrease/increase also dependant on rank.

Time Manipulation: Allows user to manipulate the flow of time, either speeding it up or slowing it down around them in a specific area, or on specific objects, by a certain amount. Amount and amount of space/people effected all dependant on rank.

Restrictions: Ranks 7 through 5 are only allowed to manipulate time and speed of themselves, their powers/weapons, and some attacks of their opponents. This is all within rank, a 7th rank will not be allowed to manipulate speed enough so that that person can travel at speeds beyond the sound barrier. Likewise a 5th rank will not be able to cause another person's powers/weapons to come to a speed of 1 inch per year, no. 4th ranks and up with be given the PRIVILEGE of being able to affect an opponents speed and time directly TO A POINT. Obviously, as you go up in rank your power and control increase, but not to the point of being cheap or god-hacking. Lastly and most importantly: IT IS ILLEGAL TO STOP TIME ALTOGETHER. It doesn't matter what rank your are, or who you are, this rule applies to 1st through 7th ranks and everyone inbetween. No one can stop time. Period.

Gaianology
Spoiler:

Hybrid


Mechanology
Spoiler:
General Description: Control over Acktun (Temporary Shrewish Artifacts) and Technology that is controlled by Makina/Knowledge of technology and mechanical objects.

Some Base Powers: (That all Shrews could learn to use):

Makina: This is the main energy type behind Mechanology. This mutation of Navitas was used by the Shrewish people long ago to power and control machinery, it has a high power output and is probably the most reactive known form of energy out there. This makes it ideal for powering machines and weapons. It also has the power to create temporary artifacts (which are simple weapons that have special abilities) called Acktun.

Mechanical Summoning: This allows the Shrew to open portals allowing them to call in machines, armour or weapons they already own, these machines have various abilities and uses from flight to teleporting. ((Note: Must have a specific list of what can be summoned and its power(s) if any))

Acktun: These, as explained briefly above, are temporary artifacts that Shrews can create by running Makina through materials, and reconstructing them into a machine, or in the case of 3rd ranks and up, can simply be created out of pure Makina.

Cloning: Allows a Shrew to temporarily create a copy of a targeted weapon or machine allowing the Shrew to use the copied weapon or machine as if it were the real thing. The higher the rank the longer the copy stay; rank 7: 2 posts, rank 1: forever.

Animation: This allows a Shrew to animate some non mechanical objects such as statues or kitchen appliances turning them into machines, weapons or armour. This is done by transferring Makina from the Shrew into the object to animate it.

Controlling: This allows a Shrew to take control of mechanical objects that are not already under the control of another stronger influence.

Construction, Destruction and Reconstruction: This is what makes this study both a science and a philosophy. Destruction and Reconstruction allows a Shrew to virtually know how to Construct, Disassemble and Reconstruct mechanical objects either by touching them ((4th ranks and below)) or just by looking at them ((3rd ranks and above)). This can be used to create new weapons, mecha or armour on the go or to destroy others mecha and rebuild it for the Shrews use. Of coarse this depends on rank and does not work if the machine or weapons is biological such as, Cyberkinetic's or different opponents weapons, for example as they are not mechanical even though they appear to be.



Restrictions:
Ranks 7-4: Shrews of this rank will have to have the needed materials around or with them to be able to construct or clone, etc a machine , it will be about the same amount of material as whats going into the machine much like alchemy.

Ranks 3-1: Shrews of this rank can create machines using just Makina alone, they require no materials.

Aethermancy:
Spoiler:
General Description: Aether is best described as what is between or separating everything. Aethermancy thus is the ability to tap into that which separates. Aether is neither physical nor metaphysical, but something in between. Normally, Aethermancers are strong in defense, using their abilities to deflect or dodge attacks, while also fortifying themselves and focusing their other abilities in conjunction. Aethermancy is a hybrid Study.

Aetherforce: A mutation of Navitas which has a defensive property to it and is used to build auras, barriers, gates, and sigils that the Auramancer uses.

Air/Wind Element: Aether is closely tied to the element of air, and thus gives the user the ability to manipulate air and wind easily.

Aether-Aura Alignment: Aethermancers take on an alignment of where their aura fixed. There are several different types, and each as a distinct advantage.

→Temple/Halo Aura: This Aura presents itself around or above the mancer’s head, giving it a halo appearance. It gives better defense against mental type attacks.

→Palm/Shield Aura: This Aura presents itself around the mancer’s hands, giving them shield like appearance. It gives better defense against physical type attacks.

→Heart/Armor Aura: This Aura presents itself around the mancer’s torso, giving it the look of armor. It gives the best defense against spiritual type attacks.

→Beyond/Space Aura: This Aura is unique in that it manifests itself outside the mancer’s body and often takes on the look of a small wisp or fairy like light. It gives the best defense against multiple attackers or those who use minions/summons.


Special Note: Aethermancers powers are locked by rank. Upon learning the study, the Aethermancer gains Aetherforce, and Wind element and choses their Aether-Aura Alignment. Those at 7th or 6th ranks are limited to one of the three types of powers (Barriers, Gates, Sigils). The second is unlocked at 5th rank, and the third and final is unlocked at 3rd. Auras are unlocked as follows: 7th and 6th ranks have 1 aura type unlocked. 2 total are unlocked at 5th. 4th ranks have the ability to switch auras in battle. 3 auras total are unlocked at 3rd rank. 2nd ranks gain the ability to have multiple auras active at once. All 4 auras are unlocked at 1st rank.


Barriers: Barriers are force-fields created by the Aethermancer to block or protect themselves or others. Barriers are no absolute, meaning they must be created against a certain types of forces/attacks and can defend against those only, while other types of attacks will simply pass through/ignore the barrier. The types of barriers that can be created depend on either the types of materials present on the field or the types of other studies/powers the Aethermancer has.

Gates: Gates allow the Aethermancer to summon or teleport, depending on how it is used. More experienced users can open gates to the Aetherplane itself, unleashing terrors lurking there or gaining access to the world between worlds.

Sigils: Much like Glyffs, Sigils are an Aethermancer’s special mark of power. Sigils can be used to either seal objects away from sight or access, lock rooms/doors, block powers from being used, as well as traps which can be activated in various different ways (pressure, touch, sound, etc). An Aethermancer always have a certain number of Sigils they can have cast at any one time, depending on rank. (7th = 3; each rank above gain’s 2 to that limit).

Astrology (Anneptii Only)

Gives the aligned the ability to 1) Once per battle, copy and use a single ability used by their opponent. 2) Gain increased speed when running in direct opposite direct from an opponent. 3) Outside of battle, heal minor to medium injuries.

Atronach: Symbol of Change and Elemental Dominance. Gives the aligned an ability called Elemental Dominance. Once during a battle, the aligned may choose one of the nine elements (Fire, Water, Wind, Ice, Lightning, Metal, Earth, Wood/Plant, Poison). For the rest of the battle, the aligned will be able to absorb: (Rank 7-4: half the damage; Rank 3-1: all the damage) of any attacks of that elemental type used against them, and gain energy for consuming that portion of the attack (energy gained proportional to the energy used to create the attack).

Summer Season:
Element: Fire
Physical Enhancement: Strength

Sphinx: Symbol of Mystery and Vengeance. Gives the aligned the ability to create a doppelganger of themselves. Doppelganger has all of the aligned abilities, but is half the power. Doppelganger is destroyed upon the first damage taken, but explodes violently, causing fire damage in an area.

Phoenix: Symbol of Fire and Rebirth. Gives the aligned the ability to self-destruct themselves in a large explosion of fire, which consumes everything around them in a small radius. The aligned is then reborn out of the ashes, cleansing all negative effects off of themselves from before. Can only be used once per battle.

Merlion: Symbol of Strength and Wisdom. Gives the aligned the ability to 1) Swim with great/greater speed and strength. 2) Flames of the aligned have a higher resilience against water/cold, making them harder to extinguish by such means.

Once full, the aligned can either 1) detonate the shield to cause a large destructive blast of energy in all directions or 2) absorb the shield to gain some energy back and heal some damage. Ranks 7-4 can use this once per battle, Ranks 3-1 can use it multiple times.

Hydra: Regeneration and Destruction. Gives the aligned 1) the ability to coat any weapons/abilities in virulent venom, extremely toxic to biological systems. 2) Increased physical regenerative capabilities.
Relicism (Shrew Only)
Spoiler:
Basic Description: Every Shrew is born with a Relic, which is a unique weapon connected with the Shrew, serving as both a connection to the power of their Studies as well as a storage for other weapons. Relicism allows Shrews to develop their abilities with their Relic further, by unlocking their Relic and allowing them to have multiple forms to change between while in battle. This allows further versatility for the Shrew in battle.

Shrews who take this Study will have a number of different forms available, the number dependant on rank. When first obtaining the Study, an additional form will be unlocked. Another form will be unlocked then at 5th and at 3rd ranks, for a total 4 forms. There are also categories that the forms fall under, listed here:
Available Form Categories:

-Melee Weapon (ie: sword, mace, shield, etc)
-Long-Range Weapon (ie: Bow, pistol, dart-gun, etc)
-Armor (ie: Gauntlets, helmets, jewelry)
-Objects (Tomes, candles, runestone, etc)

People are not limited to which categories they pick from nor how many weapons come from each category. Each form should, however, be listed with which category the form comes from, what powers, abilities it has, what type of ammo it uses (if applicable), and any other necessary information that can be applied in battle situations.
