Reclamation

From AchaeaWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

In the beginning there were no cities; those that practice Reclamation shall see it so again.

Nature is both beautiful and terrible, and the power that Reclamation grants reflects this. Those that have gained proficiency are able to tap into the remnants of natural life in a location, coaxing them to grow at an astounding rate. Nature shall overtake the location, granting the one to enable the process great power when standing upon their reclaimed land.

Very little is known about the full capabilities of a master of this skill, although there are rumours of practitioners being everywhere similtaneously, or having the earth swallow up those unfortunate enough to fall in battle.
