i was later told it does more damage if you aren't of that race/class you're trying to erase.

this is a corner case: my lich can't erase the necromancer spellbook they used previously. plz fix it so a lich can erase their previous books.

Why is erasing a spellbook doing damage to you, anyhow?

Perhaps the book fights back?

I think it is fine as it is, you can always get a vit + embody.

I agree it should succede if you die. I know some n00b sissys then roll a level 1 and cast it, but that is fine with me.

It could also be fun if there was some kind of safe that instead of death put you on -7hp. Then other players could laugh at you while you slowly died.

It's pretty stupid that if you die, it fails. Scribing is a time sink as it is. This spell is insult to 'injury'

I don't know... I kind of like the fact that there's a chance of killing ya. Your releasing powerful magic from a spell book ya don't think there would be some kind of effect from that? silly.

Shouldn't it, therefor, inflict pain just the same in having scribed into a tome? Illogical :( Scribing or erasing all day won't get one rudimentary spell channeled

Wait, what? Erasing your spellbook can kill you? What the fuck? Why?

Code: Select all

ERASE
spell

Area of effect: held spellbook
Aggressive:     No
Cumulative:     N/A
Duration:       Instantaneous
Class/Circle:   Elementalist/Enchanter/Illusionist/Invoker/Lich/
                     Necromancer 1st
Type of Spell:  Generic

This spell causes the spellbook held to release the binding energy
latent in the scribed spells.  The spellbook held will be completely
erased if the spell is successful.  There are rumors of dangers to
mages who attempt to erase powerful spellbooks.

Note: This spell requires a spell component of iron filings.

Never could understand the reason for this spell inflicting damage on the caster either. Oh well, nothing a level 50 alt with 700+ hp can't handle, right?

I got hit for 823 hp when i erased a 300 pg spellbook, probably need an elem w/fembo and vit to erase anything more than that.
