Flycatcher (Aligned Form)

From LSWiki

Jump to: navigation, search



This form is well-known to the occasional Aligned Spearmaiden. It allows one to achieve a sort of resonance with one's memories of the desert, allowing one to experience the sum of one's value for the desert in a heady rush. One can use field knowledge of the silky flycatcher, a crested desert bird, as a focus or a sieve for this experience so that one will be able to find in it the ethos of the Maidens of the Spear. This, in turn, will allow one to manifest a yari, a fighting spear.

The more one learns about the desert, the more one will be able to perfect this form and the blade that flows from it. In addition to the quality of the blade itself is the fighting spirit contained within it: one can capture the essence of the desert in novel -- and, at higher levels of perfection, esoteric -- combat maneuvers.

Like all Aligned weapon manifestations, it will last either until banished, until one no longer has the order energy to maintain it, or until one disincarnates. To banish a yari, concentrate on returning the form within it to a potential state.
