The vivacious energies of your spell focalize around your head. As the pattern reaches deeply beyond your conscious mind, you are pervaded by a feeling of sobered vigilance.

Notes

  • Duration is only when self cast. The spell cannot be pre-cast on others.

Misconceptions

There is a myth that the spell Awaken helps to save patients who are "in shock and dying." This was confirmed false by GM Naohhi in a forum post on 1/11/2015[1].

While I sometimes enjoy reading the stupid that sprouts up..


Awaken

  • Attempts to cure the states known as Unconscious and Stunned.
  • Does nothing to the state known as Dying state that may also be referred to as Pre Death Shock, not to be confused with Empathic Shock.


Using Awaken on someone in the dying state is as useless as offering lavender to Meraud. Meaning, you can do it, but those of us that know better are just laughing at you while you make yourself look silly.


When asked whether Awaken ever had any effect on the dying state, GM Naohhi responded:

there was never a bug that did anything like that.

Awaken has not changed since it was released.

I looked at the code before I posted.
