You are the Revenant Mage. You must defeat Ansirous.

Setting

Chapter 1

Words of Power Known

Orbus
Seems to denote circularity; when used with Fuge it created a fireball but when used with Zephra it created a stormy blast with the caster as the focal point.
Fuge
Used to do things with fire.
Vomus
Used to spew things from the mouth.
Verbam
Seems to relate to speech in general, not necessarily words. Used in combination with Biblus to speak.
Biblus
Has to do with words, books and the like. Used in combination with Verbam to speak.
Trasus
Used to move from one place to another. Blinking, basically, on its own.
Zephra
Used to do things with wind or electricity or both.
Torrentus
Seems to denote a wide and/or constant stream.
Scutum
Effectively "Shield". By itself it creates a small shield of force- useful but not particularly strong.
Fulga
Seems to denote a line, straight out from the caster. Offensive spells gain focus but are thus harder to aim.
Zephyr
Seems to behave like Zephra. Might not include the electricity element. Possibly stronger?
Ferrum
Used to do things with metal. Most likely requires physical contact with metal.
Obscurus
Hides things. Spidrift uses it to go invisible when he teleports.
Acridum
Used to do things with acid, possibly also noxious gas.
Philen
Untested. In theory, can be used to calm animals.
Unda
Most likely used to do things with water. Spidrift combined it with Fuge to make a gout of steam.
Sanctus
Has to do with holiness, light, and healing. Unholy and evil creatures take extra damage, but Ferrucio is mostly shielded- he merely feels a lot of pain when using this Word. Repeated use by Ferrucio over a period of time can result in greater vulnerability to holy effects. Any use at all causes a gradual personality shift of some sort, perhaps opening the caster up to suggestions from God.
Volanta
Has to do with flight. By itself, acts as a ten-foot levitate.
Infernus
Has to do with unholiness and darkness, possibly also harming. Could be quite pleasant for Ferrucio to use, but overuse is likely just as dangerous if not more so.

Spells known

Ferrucio has no problem casting any of these spells in combat.

Orbus Fuge

Basic Fireball. Builds attunement.

Trasus.png

Trasus

Short distance blink teleport. Drains attunement.

Revenant.png

Trasus Fuge

Burst of movement with a trail of flame. Lower attunement boosts the fire, higher attunement boosts the movement. Builds attunement, meaning repeated use makes it better for dodging but worse at making fire.

Orbus Zephyr

Violent omnidirectional burst of pure wind originating from the caster. Can be used to break one's fall. Builds attunement.

Fulgafuge.png

Fulga Fuge

Beam of fire. Narrower and more damaging than Orbus Fuge, but requires more accuracy. Builds attunement.

Scutumferrum.png

Turns a held metal object into a shield temporarily. Drains attunement.

Trasus Verbam

A spell used to throw your own voice. Can be used to communicate privately at a distance.

Violently extends a held metal object. Builds attunement.

Orbuszephrafuge.png

Orbus Zephra Fuge

10-foot explosive firestorm AoE. Can knock back enemies. Builds attunement.

Orbussanctus.png

Orbus Sanctus

Ball of light. Explodes with a holy flash of light that only harms evil/unholy beings. The light itself can burn Ferrucio if he overuses Sanctus spells. Builds attunement.

Torrentusfulgasanctusfuge.png

Torrentus Fulga Sanctus Fuge

Giant fuckoff beam of light. Causes extreme pain to Ferrucio. Doesn't really give a shit how pure-hearted its target is. Builds a great deal of attunement.

Spherical shield around the caster that moves with them. Drains attunement.

Torrentus Acridum

Angelic wings. Drains attunement constantly while in use.

Volantabiblus.png

Converted a book into near-useless paper wings. Ferrucio admits it might not have been his brightest idea.

Torrentus Unda Fuge: A wide, superheated gout of steam, capable of melting flesh from bone.

The protagonist. Was once a very powerful mage who eventually became an evil undead Revenant before losing his sanity and memory.

Spidrift.png

Spidrift, The Butcher Mage

A man the Revenant Mage kidnapped at the age of three. Named Spidrift, he himself has admitted to being thoroughly brainwashed as to love the Revenant Mage unconditionally, and also explained that due to years of brutal training and condition, he has "a healthy sadism and lack of ambition." He earned his position by killing the man who trained him. Smiles disconcertingly and doesn't really blink.
