Quote: "GREETINGS, WE ARE THE WIZARDS AT THE WIZARD FEDERATION *CHAOS*"


Wizard's Ship
The Wizard's Ship

Crew members of SS13, I offer you my sincerest greetings. My name is of no matter, but if you must call me something, you may call me The QuarterWizard. I would like to inform you that I am the noble leader of the Wizards Federation.

You may be wondering, "Why, why mighty QuarterWizard, why do you send wizards to the station to destroy us all?"

Well, denizen of the station, it's quite simple really: One or more of your crew has angered our magical Federation, and now you will all pay the price.

If you're lucky enough to only have certain members of the crew anger us, like that geneticist who once claimed that us magical folk are merely "products of genetics research", then you're more than likely to survive, assuming you give our wizard the means to escape early on. If not, well... Not even I, the mighty QuarterWizard can guarantee your safety. We train our wizards to be masters of many spells, so there is no saying how exactly you will succumb to our mighty wizards.

But, for you lesser beings, I have archived a list of our most common spells, so as to assist you simpletons in identifying just how skilled and varied our wizards can be. Wizhat.PNG


Dress to Kill

If you are a Wizard, then remember to keep your gear on. Not only are they the latest in wizarding fashion, they are also a powerful magical amplifier. That's the Wizard's Hood, Robes, and Sandals. If you lose those, you are in a boatload of trouble.

Do everything in your power to keep your skirt on. Hurl spells, throw rocks, shout hurtful names at them. Whatever you do, don't let them touch the clothes.

Preparation

You start on board a nearly destroyed Wizard Ship. You have 10 spell points to spend.

Use the Wizard's Ship you start in to familiarize yourself with the spells before you teleport onto the station. You can even re-learn the spells as often as you'd like as long as you're here. Take your time. No need to jump in right away.

Min-Maxing

You can take any of your spells multiple times to upgrade them, generally giving them a lower cooldown.

Spells and Artifacts

Offensive

Spells and items geared towards debilitating and destroying. You can reduce the cooldown by spending more points on the spell.

Items are not bound to you and can be stolen. Additionally they cannot typically be returned once purchased.

So long as both your body and the item remain intact and on the same plane you can revive from death, though the time between reincarnations grows steadily with use, along with the weakness that the new skeleton body will experience upon 'birth'. Note that becoming a lich destroys all internal organs except the brain. 2 1
Defaultspell.png Spacetime Distortion Entangle the strings of space-time in an area around you, randomizing the layout and making proper movement impossible. The strings vibrate... 1 30
Thetrapsspell.gif The Traps! Summon a number of traps around you. They will damage and enrage any enemies that step on them. 1 25/20/15/10/5

Wand of healing.gif Wand of Healing: This wand uses healing magics to heal the living and revive the dead. Rarely utilized within the Wizard Federation, for some reason.

Wand of teleportation.gif Wand of Teleportation: Will rip up and scatter anyone or anything caught in its path. Unlike teleportation spells employed by the wizard, this wand makes no qualms about depositing teleportees in space, fires, or the center of a black hole.
Wand of door creation.png Wand of Door Creation: For when you need an easy way out. Point at a solid wall and fire -- who needs ID cards in this day and age?
Wand of fireball.gif Wand of Fireball: Useful for burning those you don't like and everyone else too. Point away from face.

2
Wizardsuit.png Mastercrafted Armor Set Functions the same as normal wizard robes, plus being space-worthy and armored. Minor slowdown. Now you can cast spells in space and low temperature places! 2
Battlemagesuit.png Battlemage Armour An ensorceled suit of armour, protected by a powerful shield. The shield can completely negate sixteen attacks before being permanently depleted. 2
Electricity2.gif Battlemage Armour Charges A powerful defensive rune, it will grant eight additional charges to a suit of battlemage armour. 1
Spells cauterize.png Cauterize Replace all brute/burn damage with burn damage, taken over time. Higher levels increases time taken to return back to original damage level. 2 80/75

Mobility

Spells and items geared towards improving your ability to move. It is a good idea to take at least one. You can reduce the cooldown by spending more points on the spell.

Items are not bound to you and can be stolen. Additionally they cannot typically be returned once purchased.

Knockspell.png Knock This spell opens nearby doors and closets. 1 10/8/6/4
Staff of door creation.png Staff of Door Creation Turns any wall into a door and opens unbolted doors. 1
Wizard whistle.png Warp Whistle A strange whistle that will transport you to a distant safe place on the station. There is a window of vulnerability at the beginning of every use. 1

Assistance

Spells and items geared towards bringing in outside forces to aid you or improving upon your other items and abilities. You can reduce the cooldown by spending more points on the spell.

Items are not bound to you and can be stolen. Additionally they cannot typically be returned once purchased.

Icon Name Description Cost Robed? Cooldown
Bg spell.png Instant Summons This spell can be used to recall a previously marked item to your hand from anywhere in the universe. 1 10
Defaultspell.png Charge This spell can be used to recharge a variety of things in your hands, from magical artifacts to electrical components. A creative wizard can even use it to grant magical power to a fellow magic user. 1 60/55/50
Shapechage spell.png Shapechange Take on the shape of another for a time to use their natural abilities. Once you've made your choice it cannot be changed. 1 20/16.2/12.5
Soultap spell.png Soul Tap Fuel your spells using your own soul! 3 1
Staff of animation.png Staff of Animation An arcane staff capable of shooting bolts of eldritch energy which cause inanimate objects to come to life. This magic doesn't affect machines. 2
Soulstone.png Six Soul Stone Shards and the spell Artificer Soul Stone Shards are ancient tools capable of capturing and harnessing the spirits of the dead and dying. The spell Artificer allows you to create arcane machines for the captured souls to pilot. 2
Necrostone.gif A Necromantic Stone A Necromantic stone is able to resurrect three dead individuals as skeletal thralls for you to command. 2
Scroll.png Contract of Apprenticeship A magical contract binding an apprentice wizard to your service, using it will summon them to your side. 2
Syndi cards.png Guardian Deck A deck of guardian tarot cards, capable of binding a personal guardian to your body. There are multiple types of guardian available, but all of them will transfer some amount of damage to you. It would be wise to avoid buying these with anything capable of causing you to swap bodies with others. 2
Bloodvial.gif Bottle of Blood A bottle of magically infused blood, the smell of which will attract extradimensional beings when broken. Be careful though, the kinds of creatures summoned by blood magic are indiscriminate in their killing, and you yourself may become a victim. 2
Bloodvial.gif Bottle of Tickles A bottle of magically infused fun, the smell of which will attract adorable extradimensional beings when broken. These beings are similar to slaughter demons, but they do not permamently kill their victims, instead putting them in an extradimensional hugspace, to be released on the demon's death. Chaotic, but not ultimately damaging. The crew's reaction to the other hand could be very destructive. 1

Rituals

These powerful spells change the very fabric of reality. Not always in your favour.

Name Description Cost
Summon Ghosts Spook the crew out by making them see dead people. Be warned, ghosts are capricious and occasionally vindicative, and some will use their incredibly minor abilities to frustrate you. 0
Curse of Madness Curses the station, warping the minds of everyone inside, causing lasting traumas. Warning: this spell can affect you if not cast from a safe distance. 4

Faithful Apprentice

You can select an artifact contract from your spellbook which will allow you to solicit the assistance of a helpful apprentice wizard. Using this contract will select a ghost who has the wizard role enabled and spawn them as your assistant. If no ghosts are available when the contact is used, it will remain usable until one is found. If you do keep yours around note that contracts can be used by non-wizards too. If you change your mind, you can click on your spellbook with an unused contract to refund your spent spell point. When you use the contract you are able to choose from four sets of two spells for the apprentice to learn.

Destruction: Fireball + Magic Missile

Bluespace Manipulation: Jaunt + Teleport

Robeless: Knock + Mindswap

Healing: Forcewall + Charge/Staff of Healing

Once they have chosen a name, the spawned apprentice is given a set of blue robes, a single-use teleport scroll and an objective to keep you alive.

Remember that your survival is paramount! The round doesn't end if your apprentice dies, but do try to keep him alive.

The AI and You!

NOTICE: THE WIZ IS HUMAN (unless he is a lizard wizard or a Skeleton)

Usually, when you go on your long space adventure, you come across an AI.

The AI will either be nice to you and attempt to protect you from the evil crew, or it will track you the whole time, and attempt to trap you! (Luckily, you have been trained by the greatest!) If this happens, go into the AI core, and see how he can track you while it's dead.

If you're feeling nice and don't mind being stunned a few times, you can always pop into the upload! When you get inside, take a Freeform module, pop out, and make nice law explaining how you are practically god of the station, and return to the upload, and of course, upload it!

After that, the AI will be very nice to you, and serve you, his master.

A Friendly Wizard

So you've been made a wizard but don't feel like going on a murderboner and would rather live peacefully among the crew? No problem! The staff are usually very friendly towards wizards [CITATION VERY MUCH NEEDED] if they announce themselves to be friendly and the AI is programmed not to harm them. So pop over to the HoP escorted by the Captain/HoS and request to be part of the station! Who knows, maybe you can be the Janitor! Just remember that you are by law and backstory an enemy of Nanotrasen. Don't get mad when some magic-hating sociopath tries to kill you. They'll try.

Suggested Starting Loadouts

Your first time playing as a Wizard can be disorientating and very hard, but also demanding. Just figuring out what spells to take is half the gamemode onto itself, the other half is utilising those spells. As such this section will detail some basic, but robust, starting Wizard loadouts.

You only get five spells to chose, meaning your spell loadout will be limited. So don't overspecialise.

Stock

  • Magic Missile
  • Disintegrate
  • Ethereal Jaunt
  • Blink
  • Knock

A basic, but robust set up. Gives you good offensive and defensive capabilities that favour hit and run attacks.

Using Ethereal Jaunt to launch a ambush, then using Magic Missiles to grant you a effective area stun attack while Disintegrate lets you quickly dispatch a single target. Blink and Knock offer a effective fallback to escaping a bad situation or if you screw up.

Offensive

  • Magic Missile
  • Disable Technology
  • Mutate
  • Disintegrate OR Fireball
  • Blink

Heavily oriented around attacking and killing the crew, you suffer from very little defensive spells, thus relying on being robust enough to kill anyone before they become a threat.

This loadout focuses on Magic Missiles and Mutate in order to kill, as well as either Disintegrate or Fireball to help deliver the coup de grâce. Disable Technology is effective in sapping all energy from Security Officers weapons while Blink offers a small defensive spell to get out of a bad spot.

Defensive

  • Magic Missile
  • Teleport
  • Ethereal Jaunt
  • Blink
  • Smoke OR offensive spell

This loadout focuses on survivability almost exclusively. You're going to have to rely on stealing station weapons in order to kill people, however you yourself will be really hard to kill as you have a large array of defensive and retreat spells to use.

Stealth

CHOOSE A REALISTIC NAME.

No Robes

  • Fireball
  • Knock
  • Mind Swap
  • 2x Free Robeless Spells

A dangerous and advanced loadout, this set up relies on stealth, evasion and confusion to get the job done. However this can prove effective in avoiding getting shot and pulling of outrageous tasks.

If you're discovered you will have few defensive or offensive abilities to employ, Fireball is your only main offensive spell, taking either Blind or Smoke can help in avoiding targets and Forcefield can help keep away pursuers.

These loadouts are meant as a general guide on a simple loadout to use. We highly recommend you experiment with any spell combination when you can.

Tips

  • While knocked down, you can still change your "facing" direction by clicking on a tile or at-tempting to move. This means you can aim fireball while knocked down.
  • Someone in the "Unconcious" state can be instantly Soul Sharded, regardless of health. Anyone under 50% HP can be KO'd by a briefcase with 100% reliability. See that assistant that burned himself to shit on the door? Briefcase bonk, shard.
  • If you use the scroll of teleportation, put it in your pocket and leave the teleportation win-dow open, when you select "Okay" on the window, you'll still teleport, even if it's not in your hands. You can also do this while stunned. So if your escapade as Gas-Mask Wizardtington the "Greyshirt" with a stolen ID ends up getting you tased, you can SCRYAR NILA INCINERATOR 3 times before they'll be able to cuff you, instead of throwing out a panic fireball and hoping he gets KO'd. This is far more useful to a robeless wizard than a robed wizard...as the robed one will likely just cast teleport/blink/jaunt if he ever gets stunned.
  • Suicide bombing is a very easy way to kill a wizard. Welderbombings can also knock the wizard out if he's not very good.
  • Removing a wizard's hat will often render him completely impotent, as very, VERY few wiz-ards carry spare hats in their backpack. Polyacid smoke grenades work well for stripping their hats.
  • You can label constructs, so please please please steal a hand labeler as a wizard so that your artificers actually know which juggernaut to heal.
  • The Staff of Animation can animate holographic objects. They retain their 'force' and do not disappear when they leave the holodeck/the holodeck is shut off. So you can load up the thunder dome simulation over and over for infinite E-sword buddies.
  • Wizard EMP shocks doors, so you should not better use doors as wizard, after you use EMP skill. Also the staff of animation is even more OP then veil render, just use it on knifes, hatchets and other items of big robustness. Combine this with EMPing security guys, which approach you and mutating in hulk, when you see guys with syringe guns (however, if chemist is not mainstream and deploys lexorin or unstable mutagen, you would get outrobusted) for greater effects.
  • The wizard's Knock spell opens bolted doors too.
  • The staff of change works on AIs.





...Now, fearless follower of the Wizards Space Federation..

I have but one question for you, now that I revealed all this knowledge to you,

Will you be ready?


With Love,

The QuarterWizard
