The Pen is Mightier than the Sword

Recommended Posts

While the term is often used to refer to the victims of the spell it is more correct to list the victims as Nocs and the spellcaster gaining benifets as Mal.

But I should start at the top for those of you who don't know about this particular bit of dark magic.

There are in fact two forms of the spell, but for now I will focus on the more common one. Which sets up a lifelink between the Mal and the Noc or Nocs as there are normally several. After all that is rather the point. Having many people to do stuff for you like bleeding and dying, healing from wounds, and just plain old aging, and even eating and sleeping if you want to take it that far. 

The spell is set up using Runes which can be inscribed on shackles, amulets, and the like; or directly onto the people involved by way of brands or tattoos.

If the Mal is a spellcaster and the Nocs are as well, then it is possible for the Mal to use their spell energies as well.

This is the darkest from of the MalNoc spell in which the Mal is a master parasite feeding on many victims at once.

There are in fact two less vile applications for the MalNoc spell.

The first is the creation of a Champion to deal with a crisis. Here everyone volunteers to support the Hero; Who then goes out with the power of the whole town behind him, very literally.

And once the crisis is over the spell is broken and everyone goes back to their normal lives.

The second is a true variant of the spell creating a band of MalNocs rather than a Mal and Nocs. In a Band everyone is linked to everyone else with a two-way connection. So no one dies until everyone does. But if one of the members is caught in something that keeps hurting them everyone is getting hurt until the link is broken. 

So think very carefully about what you're getting into before using magic like this.
