Elements are categories for skill. Certain individuals possess a elemental resistance or immunity to one element or another; and most psy users possess an affinity for one of the four types of particle manipulation, dependent on their personality.

Physical[edit | edit source]

These are ordinary attacks using solid weapons, such as: swords, bows, knives, and etc.

Pierce[edit | edit source]

Piercing damage is done by weapons such as spears, bolts, knives, and arrows.

Slash[edit | edit source]

Slashing damage is done by weapons bladed weapons such as swords.

Crush[edit | edit source]

Crush damage is caused by bludgeoning weapons.

Psychic[edit | edit source]

Mental[edit | edit source]

These attacks are purely mind-based, relying on manipulating and damaging the opponent's mind from within.

Shield[edit | edit source]

Shields are mental techniques that create psychokinetic barriers that resist every possible type of damage. Described "like hitting a[n invisible] wall."

Particle Manipulation[edit | edit source]

There are four psy elements that works via psychokinetic particle manipulation.

Heat[edit | edit source]

These attacks are pyrokinetic in nature. The attacker speeds up molecules in the air until he or she produces fire that can be used to scorch opponents.

Cold[edit | edit source]

These attacks are cryokinetic in nature. The attacker slows down molecules in the air until he or she can freeze opponents or throw jagged ice at enemies.

Shadow[edit | edit source]

These attacks are skiakinetic in nature. An offshoot of mental attacks, shadow attacks give physical form to negative emotions, breaking apart water vapor in the air and forming a highly corrosive miasma.

Light[edit | edit source]

These attacks are photokinetic in nature. These attacks rely upon intense electromagnetic radiation coupled with percussive force. The attacker charges and concentrates photons so that they will damage opponents on a cellular level, then releases them in a shockwave. Light is widely considered to be the most difficult element to learn, as it requires the manipulation of particles orders of magnitude smaller than those used by the other elemental attacks.

Miscellaneous[edit | edit source]

Falling[edit | edit source]

This element refers to skills that move other characters around; this includes skills like Shove, Throw, Kinetic Gust and Gravity Spike. Falling attacks deal damage based on falling from heights, and bypass ordinary character defenses. Falling attacks are useful in forcing enemies into environmental hazards.

Move[edit | edit source]

Movement skills move the user to the target space, typically bypassing obstacles in the process. Movement skills can be used to supplement a character's ordinary maximum movement.

Create[edit | edit source]

Create skills spawn a character or object on the battlefield.

Explosive[edit | edit source]

Explosive attacks are technological in nature, and they bypass ordinary character defenses. Explosive attacks deal 5x damage to every destructible object in range (including explosive Charges!) Explosive attacks are far and away the most effective attacks for destroying walls and bridges.
