making your own world
« on: April 12, 2010, 05:29:53 PM »
since alot fo magic is based predominantly on personilization to evoke your own power
has anyone ever created there own history and language system?? in order to completelyimmerse there workings in there own energy and way of showing those things, it seems t me that most people barel grasp the altin or greek some use in there spells yet they work and the meaning o the words they seem to forge from imagination without knowing there literal translation. Continuing with this thought why even stop there would we not be able to create better energy constructs and servitors i we created our own little world in which such spirits lived of course having to obey rules but paising you as a god?
what are your individual thoughts on this? predominantly though the languages portion/ :)
the wind that chills the night, the fire's golden light
the oceans call to you, the earthen fated tune,
I am the ivy binding tight i hold the spells all through the night, i am
nightshade's fated swoon of deaths kiss and witches broom

I think if the caster has an emotional attachment to the things invoked and the way they're invoked, it'll work much better. The only problem I could forsee is the caster knows that that world and those beings are creations of the mind. So unless the caster's a solipsist or something of the like or believes that all magic is human power and the 'entities' are just symbolic channels for that power, then most would have to convince themselves of those things' actual existence.

That being said, the language part wouldn't be problematic. It's the history/world part that would need some convincing.
