MANA


Mana is a character's capability of casting spells, represented by a numeric value. High mana means your character is high on magical power, and low means the opposite.

By default, your current level of mana is displayed in your prompt. If nothing is shown, it means your spellcasting capacity is full. Otherwise, one of the following words is displayed (in descending order): Burning, Hot, Warm, Cold, Icy, or Frozen.

Mana will regenerate at different rates depending on how much you have. That is to say, it will take a lot longer to regenerate the same amount of mana if you are at Icy rather than if you were at Hot. Mana regeneration is faster if you are resting or sleeping.

The word "mana" is popular in gaming, ultimately deriving from Polynesian languages via Larry Niven's short story "Not Long Before the End".
