World of Sharr
The discipline of Corpsmancy revolves around increasing the capabilities of one’s own body through manipulation of the Manna within it. By properly utilising their own Manna, Corpmancers can alter their bodies at the cellular level to make them capably of feats that ordinary humans could never dream of accomplishing. A good Corpsmancer can lift half a ton, run at speeds in excess of 25 MPH, or even highten his sense of smell to such an extent that he could track a smell much like the average dog.
This makes Corpsmancy a very powerful discipline. However, it is not without its drawbacks. Hieghtening the body’s function increases the metabolism a great deal, and exhaustion, dehydration, and occasionally starvation are common concerns for Corpsmancers. In addition, it is not uncommon for overused muscles to begin to rip and tear. As such, many Corpsmancers are quite strict about using their powers only when training or when necessary.
