A Chunk of Fantasy 2.01 Dissipating Armour [Spell]

“Now young one, listen well. See the Bert over there? He’s a good friend of mine and offered to help me in teaching you this spell. The typical warrior is a deadly foe for us mages to go u against in combat. They have weapons, tactics and what else? Correct! They have armour. Bert is wearing some old armour we got for cheap for this purpose as I don’t want to ruin the set he normally wears. Watch carefully. See the way I move my hands as I utter the words. With the final gesture, I cast the spell towards Bert. Now it’ll take a few seconds to start working..see..his armour appears to be dissolving away like dust in wi…Bert by the gods, how many times have I told you to wear something under your armour!”

“When we first encountered the Aerons, it was not hard to see where the old legends of the angels came from. They were very similar to us, we thought they were out lost cousins, so to speak. t was not long before we realised that the fact they looked like us may have been a coincidence, or possibly by design.

Those nearby saw a lance of red and yellow and white pierces the clouds, scattering them like children from an angry parent. It screamed over theirs heads.
