Hack Recipes

Hacks are the secret weapon of the Magik Online website, the combination of two spells from different colors; something long thought impossible by sorcery research. The process behind Hack creation is a secret closely guarded by the Sponsors.

Unlike White Metamagic, which alters existing spells but leaves their core essence unchanged, Hacks are entirely new spells; a Hack always has a higher Dot Level than its two components, but is more specialized. As such, there is no Dot One Hack.

Dot Three Hacks

Clockshot

Dot: 3
Components: Eldritch Blast + Reload
Activation: Active, Thought.

You project a purple energy blast, which upon impacting on a target, replaces it with a previous version of themselves up to ten seconds in the past; changes thus induced during that timespan are erased. The closer the target from the blast, the farther back in time the replacement. Clockshot can affect both living and unliving targets.

Manic Plague

Dot: 3
Components: Emotion Bomb + Secondskin
Activation: Active, Direct Touch Vector.

You can spawn microscopic, slug-like parasites from your skin and have them transfer to a host on skin contact like a subtle infection; the parasite moves to occupy the host’s nervous system, more specifically the zones in charge of emotional reactions. The caster can sense the parasites over any distance so long as they are on the same plane of existence, and have them induce a specific emotion in their hosts, such as lust, hate, or happiness. Only the caster can create and transfer parasites; if removed from its original host in any way, the parasite self-destructs.

Skinning Arms

Dot: 3
Components: Kinetic Choke + Secondskin
Activation: Active, Direct Touch Vector.

You can telekinetically harvest the skin of someone you touch through direct skin contact; the victim may or may not survive the painful process, which lasts but a few seconds. The dead skin harvested reforms in the shape of thin, flat tentacles growing out of your back and which you telepathically control. The tentacles grow longer and stronger with each skin harvested, with the only limit being the ‘donor’ supply.

Emergency Exit

Dot: 3
Components: Doppelganger + Reload
Activation: Active, Thought.

The caster creates a perfect, free-willed quantum duplicate of themselves. It will dissipate if suffering a lethal wound and can neither use spells nor Lock, and unlike a standard Doppelganger the original will gain none of its memory upon death. Should the caster suffer a lethal wound and the double remains active, reality alters itself so the original and the double switch place: the double suffers the wound, while the original appears unharmed at the exact spot the double used to occupy. This is a teleportation and time manipulation effect. The caster can only have one sacrificial double active.

Master Mirror

Dot: 3
Components: Glass Field + Call
Activation: Active, Thought.

You can summon magical mirrors binding the Planes of existence together within two meters of yourself – this is a teleportation effect. The mirrors allow you to connect to a Plane of your choosing, whom you can observe through the reflection; you can allow Outsiders to pass through the reflection and into the material universe, although you cannot yourself travel to other Planes nor send anything through from your side of the mirror. Outsiders who cross a mirror are bound to the reflection, and can be recalled back into it with a thought.

Hands of Slaughter

Dot: 3
Components: Kinetic Choke + Killer Sense
Activation: Passive, App Switch.

You can summon dozens of ghostly, telekinetic hands, each with a five-meter range, with the speed of bullets, and immense strength. These hands are not under your control and possess a will of their own, and will automatically strike to kill any perceived threat within range to protect you. Hands of Slaughter will act even if you are unaware you are under attack.

Dot Two Hacks

Alchemic Sphere

Dot: 2
Components: Alchemic Grasp + Intuimotion
Activation: Passive, App Switch.

You control chemical reactions within five meters of yourself, allowing you to ignite material, cause chemical breakdowns of the cells of the living, or a variety of effects limited only by your knowledge.

Selfsight

Dot: 2
Components: Pathfinder + Intuimotion
Activation: Passive, App Switch.

You perceive a simulation of yourself five minutes, simultaneous to your present; the simulation allows you to see your surroundings, and will thus forewarn you of dangers, but only those you can perceive. The simulation will adapt to your decisions.

Lifepulse

Dot: 2
Components: Impulse + Peak
Activation: Active, Thought.

You unleash a pulse of green flux, which provides an accelerated healing factor to anyone within ten meters of yourself. While the healing factor is relatively weak (and so will not regenerate limbs or organs), wounds will close and targets will lose accumulate stress and fatigue.

Seapurge

Dot: 2
Components: Purge + Seamancer
Activation: Active, Direct Touch Vector, Thought.

You purge anything you touch from its water, drying it out like a husk; the process can be lethal against living beings, although the bigger the target, the longer it will take to dry it out.

Spellcatcher

Dot: 2
Components: Intuimotion + Spell Syphon
Activation: Active, Thought.

You can catch a spell being cast within ten meters of you, allowing you to contain it within you; you can then cast it as if you were the original sorcerer, so for example a spell buff would apply to you. You can hold up to one spell at a time, and you cannot catch spells of Dot Four or above.

Firebird

Dot: 2
Components: Firekin + Peak
Activation: Passive, Thought.

Your biology is optimized to become that of a phoenix, a primal fire elemental. You can turn your flesh to fire at will, taking the shape of an angelic being with fiery wings; you can produce flames up to 4000 degrees and gain limited flight while in this form. As a side-effect, you are immune to all forms of fire and flames while this ability is activate.

Grave Madness

Dot: 2
Components: Berserk + Doom Sense
Activation: Passive, App Switch.

Your bloodlust overcomes even death. Should you suffer a lethal wound, your soul will instantly possess your corpse for five more minutes and animate it for the purpose of battle; you behave as if under the Berserk spell for that time. Afterward, your soul’s connection to your body will break down, and you shall pass on normally. You are counted as an Undead while under the effect of that spell.

Weak Point

Dot: 2
Components: Psychometry + Alchemic Grasp
Activation: Passive, App Switch.

You subconsciously understand the structure of anything that you see on an sub-atomic level, from buildings to human bodies; this knowledge allows you to notice the perfect ‘weak points,’ which cause structural damage if targetted. Weak points appear to you as black dots on a structure, and will cause structural collapse if pressed with force; you are always aware of the degree of structural damage you will cause before attacking.

Inteldrain

Dot: 2
Components: Premium Thoughts + Purge
Activation: Active, Direct Touch Vector.

You can drain a specific mental information from the mind of a target on direct touch contact. This does not allow for mind-reading; you must be aware of the information’s existence before casting the spell and you cannot check it before draining it. Otherwise, the nature of the information you may harvest is broad, from a memory, to entire sets of skills. The victim loses the target information, which can translate as permanent loss of a memory; however, the victim is always aware an information was forcefully taken, even if the memory of the erasure has been removed.

Intuidefense

Dot: 2
Components: Intuimotion + Doom Sense
Activation: Passive, App Switch.

Your unconscious mind can now act on its own, moving your body without a need for conscious command. Your unconscious mind can sense danger within a five meters radius, and instantly move your body with perfect coordination to avoid it. You yourself may not need to be consciously aware of the danger; your body will react even while you are asleep or unconscious.

Stringfield

Dot: 2
Components: Intuimotion + Red String
Activation: Active, Thought.

You can create a field of invisible spirit strings within a ten meters radius, which appears like a birdcage to those able to perceive it. You gain instant awareness of anyone touching one of the strings, and you can direct them to restrain or attack at will. You can also bind two people, including yourself, with one of the string, which instantly reduces in length, pulling the victims towards one another against their will.

Mad Spark

Dot: 2
Components: Premium Thoughts + Berserk
Activation: Passive, Thought.

You have broken the natural limiters of your brain, which is both a blessing and a curse. You can increase your intelligence in certain areas to supernatural levels by trading intelligence in other areas; for example, becoming able to copy any martial art move after seeing it once or giving you the ability to figure out the true nature of the universe through advanced mathematics, at the cost of the ability to read. The mind was never meant to process certain truths however, so overuse of this Hack may result in mental instability and permanent personality changes.

Perfect

Dot: 2
Components: Premium Thoughts + Peak
Activation: Passive, App Switch.

You have become the ultimate version of your specie, which translate into a limited adaptation power. Your body instantly adapts to deal with any task you face, strengthening your lungs to hold your breath underwater; optimizing your body to run the second you exert yourself; or increasing your intellect in the area you face a challenge with. This adaptation must be within the natural limits of your specie, so while you may run like an Olympic athlete, punch like a heavyweight boxer, or reason like a genius, you will not grow wings anytime soon.

Rainmaker

Dot: 2
Components: Seamancer + Timesense
Activation: Active, Voice.

By altering the weather through humidity and subtle time manipulation, the sorcerer calls the rain on the area within earshot for a ten minutes duration. When casting the spell, the sorcerer decides the intensity of the rain, from faint droplets to intense downpour. 

Pitborn

Dot: 2
Components: Berserk + Heatriser
Activation: Active, Thought.

The user transforms into a demonic berserker; gaining hellish might, strong skin, and the power to channel fireballs through their hands. The user keeps control of themselves, but no longer feels pain and trades finesse for brute strength. The transformation is reverted should the user fall unconscious, or die.

Mad World

Dot: 2
Components: Blue World + Berserk
Activation: Active, Voice Vector.

Sends every living being within earshot of the spell spiraling into a frothing, killing frenzy. The victims no longer distinguish friend from foe, and remain in this state until exhausted or successfully killing another living being .

Lightbringer

Dot: 2
Components: Quasar + Reinforce
Activation: Passive, Thought.

You can generate solid, magical light from your body. These magical constructs quickly degrade into natural light after being separated from your body. As a side effect, you can see through non-magical bright light and deep darkness both.

Glass Field

Dot: 2
Components: Intuimotion + Dirt Call  
Activation: Passive, Thought.

You now have absolute psychic control over glass within a ten meter/thirty-two foot radius. You can use glass as an extension of your own senses, and cast spells through them. The purer the glass, the finer your control.

Bullseye

Dot: 2
Components: Timesense + Intuimotion
Activation: Passive, App Switch.

You gain supernatural reflexes, agility, accuracy, and aim. You can also predict movement with near perfect accuracy, allowing you to make shots with supercomputer levels of mathematical complexity.

Killer Sense

Dot: 2
Components: Timesense + Doom Sense
Activation: Passive, App Switch.

You subconsciously sense the death of others; this allows you to intuitively divine weak points and how to inflict lethal wounds.

Splash

Dot: 2
Components: Seamancer + Urbanstep
Activation: Passive, Thought.

You can teleport into any body of inorganic liquid which you can perceive. This includes water, fuel, lava, and even rain drops. You are not harmed by the teleportation effect, but you may suffer from exposure to the liquid. This ability has no range and can work even through mediums such as photos; if the liquid has changed place or been removed since, Splash will fail to work.

Cacophony

Dot: 2
Components: Berserk + Babel
Activation: Active, Voice.

You prevent everyone within earshot from understanding any form of language (written, oral, body language, or even magical signals) for ten minutes; this manifests as the victim comprehending communication as senseless gibberish. As a side-effect, victims suffer from agnosia for the spell’s duration, being unable to identify others in spite of keeping their memories of them .

Thunderling

Dot: 2
Components: Biosurge + Peak
Activation: Passive, Thought.

Your body is optimized to produce bioelectricity, which you can generate and control at will. Your output rivals a power plant, allowing you to produce lightning bolts or EMP, increase your reaction time by stimulating your nerves, or coat yourself in electricity. As a side-effect, you are now immune to non-magical electricity damage.

    1. No, they aren’t Blue Magic. I used that background and text since WordPress doesn’t allow me to use multiple text colors in one of those paragraphs (which would better represent Hacks).

  1. Could you add a border/outline in a different colour? I’m not familiar with the limitations of WordPress as a word processor.

      1. I’ve done some experimentation with that method but in some cases the colors do not mix well (ironically) and it’s barely visible. I will settle on the current method for now, until I find an appropriate widget.
