A World Unwritten

Stuck in the worst dream possible – the reality of my own creation. Here I am, not the all-powerful author, but an unsuspecting character, woken up in a beggar's body in the world of my own novel. How? Why? I don't know, but what I do know is that I need to survive. My memories of the story's plot are sketchy at best, but I remember enough to know I've got to stick to the main storyline. Life-or-death decisions, cryptic mysteries, formidable enemies, I wrote them all. Now I must face them firsthand. The irony would be delicious if it weren't so deadly. Am I stuck in my worst nightmare or have I been given a chance to rewrite my destiny? Only time will tell. Until then, I’ve got to survive in this Insane world, a plot to follow, and one hell of a story to write... by living it.

Yo, I'm just gonna drop some of my notes here. I phrased it so you can enjoy it if you want to read through it. Tell me if you guys want a character sheet, it'll be a pain to write but eh... you guys have rights. 

Let's delve into the concept of affinities, an integral element of magical abilities that vary significantly among individuals. Essentially, affinities are innate connections to various elements or aspects of magic, extending beyond the basic four—earth, fire, water, and ice—to include metal, mana, aura, and even specific types of magic like dark magic or healing magic, among others.

Affinities can be further categorized into subsections, such as evolved or mutated affinities. For instance, a person may possess an affinity for primordial fire or have spiritual affinities. These advanced forms are crucial, as they enable the use of specific powers, like primordial fire, that are typically inaccessible to those without the corresponding affinity. Hence, affinities play a pivotal role in one's magical capabilities and their connection to magic.

It's important to note that people can wield magic even without affinities. However, the efficiency and strength of their magic can vary greatly. Consider the character Isabella, who represents a balanced individual with multiple high-level affinities: she scores a 7-8 out of 10 in fire, lightning, ice, and wind. Her other affinities might rank significantly lower, at one or two. For Isabella, casting a simple fireball may consume five mana points. In contrast, attempting to use water magic, for which she has no affinity, could require an exorbitant 50 to 60(The number can go higher) mana points, rendering such spells impractical for her.

There are unique scenarios where an individual possesses an affinity exclusively in one area. For example, Flora has a singular affinity for nature, enabling her to use plant-based magic with exceptional efficiency and minimal mana cost. In comparison, Ida, who has multiple affinities including nature, scores a seven in this area. However, Flora's unique situation grants her a nature affinity level of eleven out of ten, surpassing the typical scale. The drawback is Flora's complete inability to use any form of magic outside of her singular nature affinity.

Lastly, affinities extend to non-elemental aspects like mana and aura, often providing additional benefits. These can vary substantially between individuals. For example, one person might have an affinity that reduces the mana cost of spells, while another could possess mana sensitivity, enhancing their ability to detect, comprehend, and utilize magic. These variations underscore the diverse nature of magical affinities and their significant impact on individuals' magical proficiency and style.

Now, let's delve into the concept of physiques within my masterpiece. Physiques pertain to the condition and unique qualities of the body, and their variation can be quite extraordinary. Unlike affinities, physiques are unpredictable at birth and can be influenced significantly by genetics.

To grasp the concept of physiques, one must first understand the composition of the body, which encompasses both physical and soul elements. Central to this is the core, a concept that represents the amalgamation of the physical self and the soul. Notably, the core is not a tangible entity within humans; rather, it symbolizes the integral connection between one's physical form and their soul. When individuals train in magic, they visualize an internal core, a practice that fosters the development of an ethereal, nonphysical core interlinked with their true core, even though this connection is often unrecognized.

Physiques vary widely, ranging from normal human physiques to more specialized forms like ying physiques, yan physiques, and cursed physiques. However, it's the special physiques—mutated or evolved—that stand out due to their unique capabilities and implications.

Consider the case of a character named Kaleidos, who possesses an extraordinary physique, which we'll term the "Chameleonic Physique." This rare condition alters his physical body at the molecular level, transforming him into an entirely different person of the same age. This transformation, which Kaleidos cannot control, automatically shifts his affinities, making him the only individual capable of experiencing the full spectrum of magical affinities. Despite the involuntary nature of these changes, Kaleidos retains the ability to revert to his original form, illustrating the dual marvel and challenge of his unique physique.

Another character, Gareth, showcases a different, yet equally fascinating physique. Known as the "Sandogen," it allows him to compress muscle mass and store it. This capability not only lets him modify his physical appearance but also enables him to continuously enhance his strength without limit, compacting this newfound power. However, using this compressed strength is not without its drawbacks; releasing a significant amount of muscle mass can be painful and demands immense concentration, underscoring the complex balance between power and control in the realm of special physiques. These examples represent just a fraction of the myriad physiques that exist within this universe.

Aura, as previously discussed, represents a unique form of energy distinct from mana. While mana is more universally understood, aura remains shrouded in mystery due to its complex nature and the peril associated with its interaction with mana. Specifically, when aura comes into direct contact with mana within an individual, the reaction is often explosively lethal.

Gaining aura can be achieved through two primary methods. The first method requires dedication and hard work in physical disciplines and body conditioning. Crucially, the individual must possess a strong desire to harness aura. Over time, this dedication results in the formation of natural aura pathways within the body, culminating in a spark that activates and fills these pathways.

The second method is more immediate but significantly more painful. An existing aura user can forcibly initiate aura pathways in another person using their own aura. This approach is fraught with danger, especially if the recipient has mana circulating within their body. However, it remains the sole method for individuals with inherent mana to access aura capabilities, necessitating intense concentration and the depletion of their mana reserves to avoid fatal outcomes.

It is essential to recognize that aura serves as a counterbalance to mana. Whereas mana facilitates the creation of new ideas, powers, and spells, aura primarily enhances pre-existing abilities, strengthening the body, weapons, and mind. Despite its primary function, creative applications of aura exist; for instance, a skilled aura user may forge weapons from pure aura. The potential effects and uses of aura can vary widely depending on an individual's specific aura pathways, allowing for unprecedented techniques and applications.

Furthermore, it's crucial to understand that the volatile interaction between mana and aura is specific to living bodies. The origins of this explosive relationship trace back to the diametrically opposed natures of ∎∎∎ ∎∎∎∎∎∎∎∎ ∎∎∎∎∎∎∎: ∎∎∎ ∎∎∎ ∎∎ ∎∎∎∎ ∎∎∎ ∎∎∎ ∎∎∎∎∎ ∎∎ ∎∎∎∎∎∎∎∎∎∎∎∎[This information has been redacted by ∎∎∎].

Mana, with its multifaceted history, stretches back to the dawn of time and has undergone countless transformations over its billions of years of existence. Currently, we focus on the contemporary understanding of mana, particularly its conversion into magic by sentient beings. Essentially, mana acts as a raw material that individuals mold into various forms and functions, demonstrating its versatility and ubiquity in magical practices. It's noteworthy that nearly all people, excluding demons and related races, are born with some inherent ability to harness this energy to varying extents.

The interaction between mana and the environment is intricate. While one might assume that dense mana concentrations directly influence their surroundings, the reality is quite the opposite. In fact, the environment plays a significant role in affecting the presence and behavior of mana. Mana possesses its own unique spectrum and wavelength, allowing it to traverse the universe independently. However, when mana is confined to a specific location and cannot disperse, it accumulates, much like water behind a dam. In such scenarios, the surrounding nature—be it flora, fauna, or the climate itself—begins to assimilate and utilize the concentrated mana, leading to phenomena such as mineral formation, species evolution, and climatic shifts.

Magic circles represent one of the most prevalent applications of mana, providing a method for individuals to shape and control it with greater ease. These circles often incorporate ancient languages, which have been bestowed upon humanity by the gods or devised by the spirit king, which significantly facilitate the manipulation of magical energies. Despite the effectiveness of these linguistic tools, it is technically possible for any living or deceased entity to wield magic without the aid of a language. However, this approach greatly complicates the casting of higher-level spells or achieving stability in magical constructs.

It is crucial to understand that ∎∎ ∎∎∎∎∎∎ ∎∎∎∎∎[This information has been redacted by ∎∎∎] holds dominion over mana; it exists as a communal and omnipresent force.
