Systematic Spell Research
Volume Four: Inks of the
Elements

You will find that the
selection of the proper
inks to use for scribing a
spell will be the most
difficult part of making a
spell. The different inks
are used with the writing
of the parts of the spell
that apply to a particular
effect. So you would use
one ink when you are
affecting how the spell
will alter its target's
ability to dodge, a
different ink when you are
directly harming the target
of a spell, and a different
ink to heal the target of a
spell.




The hardest thing I found
to remember is that the ink
itself does not affect how
the target of the spell
will resist a spell, but
instead is only concerned
with the effect. The same
ink will be used for a
spell that causes cold
damage as a spell that
causes fire damage.
Instead the additive to the
ink will differentiate
those two spells.

All inks are made by mixing
one or more pigments in
pure water.

Ink of Ro is used for a
spell that will affect how
its target resists fire
damage. It uses madder
pigment and tin powder.



One must remember that this
is only how well the target
will resist fire damage,
not how the target will
resist the spell that uses
this ink.

Ink of E'ci is used for
a spell that will affect how
its target resists damage
to cold. It uses logwood
pigment and alum powder.

Ink of Druzil Ro is used
for a spell that will
affect how its target
resists magic and lightning
damage. It uses logwood
pigment and iron powder.

Ink of Marr is used for
spells that have a stunning
effect, be it that the
spell itself will stun



opponents, or the spell
makes one more resistant to
being stunned. It uses
titanium powder.

Ink of Saryn is used for a
spell that will affect how
its target resists poison
damage and it will alter
how long a poison will
remain in affect. It uses
fustic pigment and copper
powder.

Ink of Bertoxxulous is used
for a spell that will
affect how its target
resists disease damage and
it will alter how long a
disease will remain in
affect. It uses catechu
pigment and alum powder.

Ink of Terris-Thule is used



to alter the duration of
Curse effects. It uses
Coal Powder.

Ink of Rainbows is used
when a spell will affect
fire, cold, magic, poison
and disease. It can also
be used as a subtractive
agent. If a large amount
of resistances would be
affected, it can be used,
and then the ink of the
resistance that is NOT
affected is added. It uses
prismatic pigment.
