    Does the ability to create fire also include the ability to create ice by reversing the heat-making-ability?

    In all seriousness, I have the joint problems of having low standards and being just that little bit demi. The first to the point where a friend refuses to set me up on a date until I get some standards.

    Does the ability to create fire also include the ability to create ice by reversing the heat-making-ability?
    I'm still working it out, but the short answer is 'not in practice'. Really creating heat without burning stuff is hard, and more of an explosion mage thing (who cannot reverse it because that wouldn't be thematic). It's all more instinctual than anything else, you can't run magic in reverse more than you can run digestion in reverse.

    Where does the energy come from? I don't know, Sam asks that question herself, but there is no 'inner energy reserve' deal or need to take energy from the environment, so the energy has to be coming from somewhere (I'll likely explore this if I write a book 2).

    Oh, well, sorry, I think that all pixies and fairies and all that sort of stuff are fey, not humanoid. And digitized ones might be construct instead.

    Look, I know templating is weird, but I've seen at least one humanoid-fae-construct-outsider in my time at wizard school. I think there were even some in the classes instead of cages!

    Now if you'll excuse me the headmaster is threatening to Banish me if I don't go to sleep. And I was so close to scribing that clairvoyance spell into my spellbook so I could... uh, nothing, totally wasn't planning to hang around the fighter college before tomorrow's big battle.

    ...no thanks, I'm good not being in a cage.

    I am now picturing an opposite of a Forbiddance, like an arcane virus that infects your scrying implement to only show the last image scribed. Instead of preventing you from seeing a thing, it forces you to only see the thing. Like a pop up ad.

    Which considering context, may potentially be a Freudian slip.

    Is an intentional Freudian slip a Freudian slide?

    Look, when the half-fraud/half-fiend/half-golem/gnome gets uppity you've got to put them somewhere safe.

    And funny thing, that spell says nothing about divinations.

    Take it from me, it's not as cool as you think it is. (About -0.1 C at most. )

    And I really love the idea of talking writing. Knowing other people who are writers and talking with them, I find I like being on the story-telling side of things as well as story-reading.

    Oh, I believe it, electronics was far less shocking than I'd assumed.

    And of it wasn't for the 'multiple continents' thing I'd totally suggest a Playground Writers Group. But I'm not even sure an online thing would be practical.

    Okay, mea culpa. I was remembering the 4e version of the spell (the first one I was exposed to) which expressly did ward against both scrying and teleportation. I've never gotten high enough otherwise to really bother absorbing another edition's.

    Never got to play it, and I kind of regret that now. Got a lot more respect for it than I did before 5e came out, and a lot less for Pathfinder.

    Yeah, it's one of those things I'd love to play again. It was my first introduction to tabletop back in middle school... but, unfortunately, the friend who's dad volunteered to DM for us decided he didn't want to continue after two sessions. And all future attempts to do stuff with friends throughout the years were... scattered and cat-herding-ly at best. It's a bad system for Play-by-Post, too, given how tactical it is, which is unfortunate, given that that's basically what I can mostly play now.

    At least all the 20-odd books I have are still good reading material. I really, really liked the Nentir Vale/Points of Light setting.

    Wow, I actually can't remember how old I was when 4e came out, maybe 15-16? I'd already played BECM and 3.5 by that point, as well as Savage Worlds 1e. Most of my gaming memories are now from uni, it's why Unknown Armies is my favourite system. My first proper campaign was in UA2e, which ended with us rubbing mud in [redacted]'s hair because a) they'd tried to turn Ventral London into it's own dimension, b) it robbed them of Urbanomancy charges, and c) every group member was of the same political leaning and none of us liked him.

    I was actually running a sequel to that last year, but it petered out due to conflicting schedules.
