For browbirds who fully dedicate themselves to learning magic, they will eventually achieve complete mastery of one of their aspects. When they obtain mastery of an aspect, that aspect will affect their body in some way.
Trait: The Form branch of aspect mastery replaces an entire part of the browbird's body with their mastrered aspect. This often times focuses in on a specific limb.
The limb can be fully manipulated by magic and can change form to be used for various purposes. they still have full function over the limb as well.
This trait is often gained during the ascendance into ancienthood after obtaining aspect mastery. Sometimes a browbird will sacrifice part of themself to magic, which will then be replaced through their aspect. While this is a difficult and often painful process, the end result provides them with a powerful and always-present source of magic.
The possabile placements are 25%-100% of one of the following: Arm, leg, tail
You can mirror the trait on both sizes, or have it placed on only one side. Does not need to be asymmetrical.
Feet affected by this trait will sometimes leave behind trails corresponding to the aspect wherever the character walks, the trails are listed below as well!
🌀 Hybrid Trait: For hiros browbirds, one or both of their wings can be used as an area affected by Form mastery
🌀 Hybrid Trait: For revenant browbirds, their exposed bone and bone tail can be affected by this trait. It will allow their bones to be made from the aspect, or will allow the bones to appear within the aspect (such as with ice or illusions).
To have one of these mastery traits, your browbird must also have the corresponding aspect.
Each different aspect counts as a separate aspect mastery traits. However, using multiple variants within the same aspect will only count as one aspect mastery trait. Please keep in mind you can only have a maximum of 3 total placements of this trait and replacing every single limb with an aspect is not possible!
