Kazarak charge

Perhaps the most powerful ability granted to the kazarak by the Kazar is the ability to store charges of energy within their bodies. These charges are varied in purpose, but all serve to enhance the host body in one way or another, making them a more efficient tool for use by the Kazar.

The number of these charges that may be used simultaneously depends on a number of factors. Each charge has different requirements in terms of energy and skill level required, and there are three power levels for each charge ( minor, major, and greater ). Clearly, more complex and more powerful charges are more difficult to maintain, and therefore fewer may be used at once.

All charges begin at 'minor' power level and with a minimum amount of contained energy. They must be bolstered by adding more energy with continued use of the 'charge' command, as the energy slowly dissipates from them over time. Charges may also have their power level altered through the use of the 'upgrade' and 'downgrade' commands. Higher levels will of course use more energy over time. The 'perform charge balancing' command is useful in controlling the exact amount allotted to each charge, as it redistributes the energy in all charges to work in the most efficient manner.

Charges may be monitored by using the 'show charges' command to list all active charges, or the 'estimate' command to view a single charge in particular. If a charge is no longer needed, it may be 'dispel'led and a portion of its contained energy will be returned to the host. Another possibility for a no-longer-needed charge is to 'release' it, which can have extreme and somewhat unpredictable consequences, depending on the charge in question.

Possible charges:

physical               stunning
protection             probability
resistance             material
infusion               intensification
haste                  shadow
 Charge syntax:

   show charges - gives a list of the types and power levels of all
      currently-active charges

   charge <charge type> - this sets up a charge initially

   charge <charge type> <amount> - this adds energy to a charge

   charge all <amount> - this adds energy to all charges which
      are currently active

   dispel <charge type/"all"> - this dispels one or more charges,
      turning them off and reclaiming some of the invested energy

   estimate <charge type> - this returns an estimation of the power
      level of a particular charge

   upgrade <charge type/"all"> - upgrades the specified charges to the
      next higher power level.

   downgrade <charge type/"all"> - downgrades the specified charges to the
      next lower power level.

   perform charge balancing - this redistributes the energy in all active
      charges to make most efficient use of it.

   release <charge type/"all") - this releases all energy stored in a 
      charge/charges in one single, unpredictable burst.
