Also, air magic can't exactly "force choke" people; that'd be more something that Arcane magic would do - a projection of the caster's will, like telekinesis, and that sort of manipulation is very hard to achieve on a living being. Air magic is more related to lightning - which is probably the largest staple of air magic - or frost (depending on which other element the person is closer to, fire or water) and using the power of wind to create gusts and tornadoes. Also, Elemental magic, such as Air magic, cannot control or influence what already exists in the mortal realm, it can only summon the elements from other realms.

 

So, could you use Arcane Magic to force choke other people?

Ehhh, it's uncertain, to be honest. We've often debated exactly how telekinetic type magic (moving stuff with your mind) should work in Wulfgard. We generally avoid using it.

 

The current rule is that it's very hard for magic to directly manipulate living beings or anything else that possesses a spirit or soul (which includes people, animals, and even things like oceans, rivers, forests, etc.). Only very experienced and powerful mages with strong spiritual presence themselves can overcome the natural protection to arcane manipulation provided by a spirit. Usually if they want to manipulate these things, they have to resort to spirit magic.

 

So, typically a mage who wants to "force-push" a living being will just summon a strong gust of wind (air magic) to knock them down. But it's far beyond the realm of air magic to form some kind of tight constriction around a person's throat.

 

The rule I used in the Errant RP that I ran was that a very powerful mage with a very strong spirit can use "force magic" directly on a living being if the target's spirit is not powerful enough to stop it, but that's not a set-in-stone Wulfgard rule.

Here's another question:

 

With Wind Magic, could a powerful enough Magi do something like this?

 

Or, if the weapons had some sort of rock, flame, or water attached to them somehow, could any other kind of Magi do it?

Any mage could do that sort of thing with telekinesis magic, if they were sufficiently skilled.
