    Cosmo: The Source of Astral Power

    Post by Spica Tsukino on Wed May 29, 2013 3:19 pm

    For the Astrologically-inclined that attend or attended Astral Academy, they are aware of Cosmo the "life-force" that flows through all those attached to the intertwining threads that is life in the universe. It's through Cosmo that Astronomical breakthroughs are discovered and even tapped into and it's also what fuels the fire that is one's Astral Power and Abilities thereof. Some view Cosmo as an "internal universe" that every living being can tap into but only those consciously aware of their powers can apply or bring into reality. Others view Cosmo as the untouched force that's ever-flowing all around them that only one that's aware of Astral Power can generate an effect from. There are of course other viewpoints, but what is agreed on is that while Cosmo is infinite in supply it isn't without its limits. Those who use too much Cosmo cannot use it for a time and while it's always there, it doesn't expand, it's just that the more skilled practitioner of its use can use more of it with their Abilities.

    Depending on the Year of the Student or position in the Faculty a character's Total Cosmo is limited to a set amount per thread.

    1st Years: 100 Cosmo
    2nd Years: 150 Cosmo
    3rd Years: 200 Cosmo
    4th Years 250 Cosmo
    Mentors/Nurse/Other Faculty: 350 Cosmo
    Janitor/Janitress: 375 Cosmo
    Dean-of-Students: 400 Cosmo
    Headmaster/Headmistress: 500 Cosmo

    Dependent on the Class of the Ability used, the amount of Cosmo used is increased.

    Basic: 20 Cosmo
    Advanced: 40 Cosmo
    Master: 60 Cosmo
    Ultimate: 80 Cosmo
    Cosmic: 100 Cosmo

    During the course of an in-character thread and should there be a battle, each member participating in that thread will be responsible for monitoring their total cosmo and the amount reduced for using their techniques. Once a character reaches 20 total cosmo, he/she will be left greatly drained and unable to fight properly if the total Cosmo of the character reaches 0 he/she will die.
