Added DiffLines:

** The method to make monsters [[spoiler: out of ''actual humans'']] was lost, but it is possible to make them [[spoiler: from misery, suffering and hatred]], which justifies [[OrcusOnHisThrone Diva of Twilight just staying in her tower]]. [[spoiler: She's amassing as large an army as she can]].

Added DiffLines:

** However, to be recognized as a Sage by the other Sages, Issac has to get the higher-level runes from each element (gathering all of the Lost Magics is left for the hero that will save the world); [[FridgeLogic presumably]], this also applied to them before they became sages. Gameplay-wise, since the spell's element, power, and cost is determined by the last rune, casting spells outside of their own element might not be very effective -- the PvP mode supports this, as each elemental character has his or her element at level 5, but all others at a measly 3 (Issac is [[JackOfAllStats balanced at level 4]]).

* ExponentialPotential: Your range of spells allows you and ''all'' your enemies to do the following: healing HP (directly, long range, over time, via rain, [[NoodleImplements using a wall]]), terrain effects, elemental armor (times six), elemental weaknesses(times six), buff and debuffs for about six different stats, zones for buff and debuffs for about six different stats, terrain effect zones ([[LethalLavaLand lava]], [[SlippySlideyIceWorld ice]], [[QuicksandSucks sand]], etc.), invincibility, invisibility, instant death roulette, monster capturing, elemental walls, traps, teleportation (though only [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard half as far as the AI]]), turning your monsters into an ActionBomb, ALL StandardStatusEffects (Berserk, Fire, Frozen, Poison, Gravity) [[OverlyLongGag etc. etc.]] Oh, and [[RuleOfCool huge-ass]] [[SummonMagic dragons]]. All that and a bag of chips.

* GameplayAndStorySegregation: It borders on violating MagicAIsMagicA, as all the Sages have you fight them for their Lost Magic, and a great deal is made out of everyone adhering to one flavor of magic, Isaac being the big exception--but they all use spells that require high-power runes from other elements, though possibly not others' Lost Magic. Also, on a NewGamePlus, you have to fight them for the magic you'll probably use against them.

* LukeIAmYourFather: Predictably, Russell is Isaac's father and the Bishop of the White Night, your LoveInterest is [[spoiler: a Sage]], and the Diva of the Twilight [[spoiler: her sister]]. Also, the guy who teaches you the Dark Rune is [[spoiler:actually a monster; his mother is an elder dragon and teaches you the uber-powerful trio runes]].

** MadeOfPlasticine: Get mobbed by monsters however and you die faster than you can say "chunky magician paste". In fact, anything in the game dies in seconds if it is mauled by a mob of monsters.
