    Up to you though.

    Ah, so many choices! My current feeling is that "sort of" like Persist, and I "sort of" like Extend, but... not an awful lot. Empower/Chain/Repeat seems better than Extend/Persist/something, in general. I'm not a huge fan of getting Empower so early, though, either. Drr.

    But then Extend/Repeat/Persist seems good because I can hold things for so long and then make with the Repeating. Ah!

    Well, it will be a long time before I get the third Metamagic. Mostly, it seems to come down to Persist vs. Chain for me...

    But then I still kind of like Silent. Boo. Impossible to know if it's something I'm going to need often or never...

    Uh... how exactly am I taking any Domain as a Sorcerer?
