The Lunar Aspects - Imperian Online Help

23.1 The Lunar Aspects

Mortals who have shown their perseverance and dedication to increasing their
experience in Aetherius and have reached the 100th level are given the ability
to take on the Aspect of one of the powerful moons. The mantle of an Aspect
allows one to imbue monoliths scattered throughout the plane with the essence
of their Aspect. Controlling these monoliths grants special powers to all those
who have taken on the Aspect of that moon.

When an Aspect is slain while in control of any monoliths, they will lose
control of those monoliths but they will not lose their status as an Aspect.
If, however, they do not control any monoliths, they will lose their worthiness
to bear the mantle of an Aspect, and will once again be required to prove
themselves.

The link between an Aspect and the monoliths is one that must be carefully
defended, as any other Aspect, at any time, may attempt to sever that link, and
take control of that monolith in return.

    - Allows you to choose the type of Aspect that you will become.
    - Valid choices: Life, Change, and Terror.

  ASSUME ASPECT
    - Allows you to take on the mantle of the Aspect you have chosen.
    - Once you have assumed the mantle of an Aspect, you may use
      the powers of the monoliths.

  LIBERATE ASPECT
    - Allows you to free yourself from the mantle of an Aspect.

  CONTROL MONOLITH
    - If a monolith is not controlled by another Aspect, you may
      attempt to wrest it under your control.
    - Those who are not often actively present to defend the
      monoliths under their control will lose them.

  RELEASE MONOLITH
    - Remove your control from a monolith.

  CONFIG MONOLITH WARNING ON|OFF
    - If you have monolith warning on, you will receive warning
      messages that will alert you when another Aspect is attempting
      to control a monolith.

      that are controlled by you and your fellow Aspects.


As you continue to advance in level past 100, you slowly accumulate experience that you can use to purchase Aspect perks as well as artifact perks via a system that is intertwined with the aspect system. You can find more information about this in HELP ASPECT PERKS as well as HELP ARTIFACT PERKS.
