Not that I want to complicate things that aren't complicated, but isn't this - Meaglyn's spell components - a swell idea?  I think so, yo!

This sounds really cool. Well thought out and very in-depth. It would likely require a lot of work to integrate into Aenea's special magic system. 20 different deities, druid spells as a specific deity, large split between Arcane and Divine spells, Epic magic... it would require work I think. The idea does sound cool though... .. however...

I'll just point this out:
;;option mc - toggle on to use material components when casting spells
The option already exists in Aenea, although I've never played with it so have no idea how it works. I know that Morty sells the "materials" book (and most of the components from what I recall).... try it out ?!?

Hmm ... I don't usually play a caster, so I had no idea ... I'll have to check that out, might be just the thing I was seeking!  THanks, RustyDios!

It's been a awhile, but I did try to use the ;;option mc command with one of my casters.

At the time I tried using material component option, I wasn't able to see any change whether it was turned on or off. The only spell which was effected was when I cast a Premonition spell and a mindflayer eyeball disappeared from inventory.

As far as I gather from that experiment, it only charges you if you have the material components in the inventory, if you do not, it cast the spell normally; not much of a restriction.

However, I would love to hear the result of someone elses try. Smile

The components in Aenea are just an option, rather than a restriction, and not all spells have an associated component.  Right now, they should just be giving a very minor XP bonus when using one to cast a spell (caster level divided by 4).

Ah, I see. I did note the sprinkle of xp it gave when casting premonition. Smile

Good to know--especially for the packrat in someone, those material components would require more bags/stuff in inventory! Razz
