I have seen the term be used every now and then, especially in Bek's stories so I was wondering... What are super-sorcerers?! Is it a term used to describe people who have access to more Essence than the average baseline mage does?

In a world of super-powers, super-villains, super-heroes, super-strength, super-soldiers, super-secret assassins, super-speed, super-thugs, super-suit, super-powered henchbeings, super-babes, etc., might it be possible that "super-sorceror" only means that the person being talked about is just in the super-hero/villain business, and not much more?

I had assumed that too, but a little while ago Bek mentioned super-sorcerors having some sort of advantage over baseline mages and there being a one-sided enmity (I can't quote it by word). So I thought to ask.

'Super-Sorcerer' is an umbrella term for those magic users who run around throwing bolts of bishru and fireballs and levitating and doing a ton of really blatant crap right off the cuff, despite the fact that they're in the prime of their lives, while 'normal' wizards, warlocks and witches have to study and practice until they're gray and work in groups, and work up a sweat for hours to do so much as lift a needle. Also, 'super-sorcerers' tend to ignore the Rule of Balance (though they're not immune to it, no matter what they think), and stir up a s__t-ton of crap that regular mages really don't want to have to cope with.

If it needs saying, regular magic users resent the hell out of super-sorcerers.

So technically the term applies to all mages who have access to vast Essence reserves, have the knowledge and training to use these AND like to show it off by using flashy spells? Lol

As someone else put it, "tossing around spells like baseballs".

Please note that the term Super-Sorcerer does not apply to Faerie Mages :D As their magic works on a slightly different system.

I plan on illustrating this more in Scald-Crow 3, but the basics are this: Faerie Mages do not passively collect essence or energy like a typical mutant. Fae while being made of essence, don't gather it outside of Faerie itself. Most Siobhra aka, Noble Fae, have access to their family's inheritance, a ton of energy built up over time.

Since they do not passively collect essence, magi need other sources. Maeve wears reliquaries to help gather magic into herself. Bess often uses hexbags and charms, and this places her handily at the beck and call of the balance.
