I was thinking about a potential character. I have had several mages in mylife as amplayer and storyteller tell stories while casting spells at once to ilustrate what they do. (the most recent case was Marcellus in the Light of Andorra saga: https://forum.atlas-games.com/t/e-mail-verification/172/1).
While this is extremely cool and fitting (IMO) having a strong magical component while being low intensity magic (I like this kind of stuff) it is extremely hard when it comes to actually doing it if you run the hard numbers. You are rarely using the appropiate words and gestures to start with, and rarely you have the exact spell designs to ilustrate your story (so you must spont). That means that in most cases the performer would fall unconscioous after a minute or 2 of telling the story. Not very climatic
Now, this made me think about a character based on performance magic. However, I staterd to envuison him as a storyteller that HAD TO tell a story in order to cast spells. Basically he would describe what was happening and it would happen The first image I had of him (mentally) was saying in a low tone from a shadowy portal "and then, he fell dead" and a nearby noble collapsing in the middle of a reception. That marks him as an antagonist for my players to me, but that is a side point.
Do you think it would be appropiate to combine performace magic (storytelling) with necessary condition: telling a story/describing the facts?
I guess the answer is yes, but I prefer to make sure I am not overdoing it
