So we've seen in the Quest for Glory universe that quite a lot of magic (especially spells used by Baba Yaga) includes quite a bit of rhyming.  Free-form rhyming, too, as spells don't necessarily have to be said the exact same way each time.  And it seems that repeating a spell that you've cast recently is simpler than casting it for the first time.

 

So I was thinking... since our hero is basically a silent protagonist, we could probably invent rhymes for his spells that he uses (and why not?)  The simpler the spell, the shorter the rhyme.

 

Of course, it's not that all magic in the QfG verse needs rhymes (look at the Leopardmen spells in QFG3), but it's just something for fun.

 

And of course, just because someone came up with a rhyme doesn't mean you can't come up with one for that spell yourself :D

 

So, here's my rhymes.

 

Zap:

Give my fight

An electric bite

 

Fire Dart:

Flaming bolt, fierce and brash

Turn my opponent into ash

 

Trigger:

Magic marker lingered how

Spell that's spun here triggered now

 

Levitate:

Invoke do I the spirits high

Make me fly up in the sky


All is well!~

Cute :D

 

But somehow I can't picture the Hero or caster talking every time he would cast flame dart ;)

Hmmm? *curious* Why Mrs McLaren, Elsa? ;)

 

It's a cute idea - rhyming couplets for spells...!  Here are some more....

 

Blizzard:

This won't turn your foes to wax,

but freeze a dragon in its tracks!

 

Calm:

Well, Ad Avis this spell would ban,

but as Salim would say - "Peace, man...!"

 

Thermonuclear Blast:

Oh, my word - this spell is hot;

Duck and cover? I forgot!

 

...and so on. <grin> I shouldn't hog them all - have fun, everyone! :)

There are many types of magic, but all require a sharp mind and a cool head. There is no puzzle I can't solve, no problem I can't think my way out of. When you feel confused or uncertain, you can always rely on me to untangle the knots and put everything back in order for you.

Electric ball:

 

He hasn't been shocked in a while

Give him the treatment from the Green Mile!

 

Force Bolt:

 

Fire can be such drain

Make him feel like hitting an express train

 

Fetch:

 

Reaching is such a stretch

Give me a ring that will fetch!

 

 

Till next time stay cool :cool:
