PARADIGMATICS - BUTTERFLY

Syntax: SHIFT BUTTERFLY <target> [<direction>]

Power:  variable (Eternal Flame)

Could the fluttering of a butterfly's wings in the Tolborolla Valley raise a sandstorm in the Skarch Desert? Such is the capricious and precarious nature of the multiverse where the repercussions of one small event can have unpredictable and momentous consequence. By manifesting the butterfly, the symbol that embraces the nature of chaos theory, you can send it towards one other so long as he or she is within your line of sight. The results will be extremely volatile and unpredictable and could even backfire on the caster.


The power taken by this chaotic skill will vary wildly from use to use. When the butterfly lands on its target, it will attempt to manifest a power and will only be able to do so if it can draw the energy from you.

The costs are shown below:

Disease:      2 power

Spider:       2 power

Boulder:      3 power

Limbs:        3 power

Astrosphere:  3 power

Pit:          5 power

Displacement: 5 power

Rip:          7 power

Maggot:       10 power

Allcure:      10 power

Notes / Messages Edit

The command releases the butterfly which then triggers its effect ~5 seconds later, it draws the power (if it can) at that delayed time. There is also a chance after landing that the butterfly will fly out again on the same target.
