Alternate Mythras/RuneQuest rules for Conjuration and Conjurer Career.

Conjurers and Summoning

Conjurer is a career found in civilized culture areas. They are similar to shamans and share the shaman binding skill. However, they differ in that conjurers lack the shaman trance skill and instead use summoning spells. Weak summoning spells use folk magic skill. Stronger summoning spells require sorcery skill.

Theurgy and Sorcery

Sorcery in Mythras is called theurgy in Twiland, whereas sorcery in Twiland is a specific sub-type of folk magic.

Mysticism

Mysticism in Twiland does not have to depend on meditation (although meditative mysticism does exist). An alternate types of mysticism use one or more of the following to achieve mystical knowledge and power:

  • Night-long secret religious rituals that use symbols of the divine and esoteric methods to achieve altered consciousness
  • Use of aestheticism, fasting, and long term isolation to achieve altered consciousness
  • Use of self-flagellation, mystical self-injury, and mortification to acheive altered consciousness
  • Use of psychedelic substances in combination with one or more of the above.
