    Oh my gosh. I love this thread so much, and will be stealing shamelessly from it for my upcoming campaign.

    Here's my addition: A series of cheap, steamy romance detective novels about a gorgeous half-elf, half-illithid outcast in an elven kingdom with an itchy spell-finger, equally good at battle spells or charm spells. He wears a veil to hide his face-tentacles, and the author demonstrates a complete lack of knowledge of actual Elven culture.

    Not only does it demonstrate a complete lack of knowledge of elven culture, but of illithid biology, since "half illithid" is...a strange concept, to say the least. I think elves and humans are the only two races that become full illithids upon cerebromorphosis. (All others because what are CALLED half-illithids, but are really just flawed transformations. They're still the illithid-spawn mind that ate the brain of the original owner of that body.)

    Oh, no, I think we can be sure that Bellis Smokeleaf made a big deal about how 'This should be impossible, one of a kind, lamenting never being able to truly be part of either world because of the sheer impossibleness of his being."

    Well, I'm more of a necromancer, but on the other hand, a treatis on xenographic identification and xenomorphic anatomy would be useful in preparing and seeking out ideal raw materials.

    "drop the science?" But...wizardry is all about the scientific method! What, you think magic isn't subject to it? Nonsense! It's how best to experiment and figure out what does and does not work!

    Hmmph. These moderns, with their 'science' nonsense. Magic is an art. It is the art. Even the spooniest of Bards could tell you that. You might as well try to measure beauty. Apprentices these days...
