Taking Requests

The last article in the Advanced Divination series is going up this Friday.  I haven’t decided what to put up the Friday after that (I don’t have any other Encyclopaedia articles written, and I’ve only got two questions for the next Ask Luna) so if you have any suggestions, write them in!

  1. Hypnotism, real or fake..?

    I have like dozens of questions, but the one that interests me the most is this:

    Dark wizards live by the “might is right”-rule. BUT Alex is often hesistant to do something he thinks is right, because he fears the consequences by the Light wizards. Then, he does them anyway. And lives.

    So, here are my questions:

    1) Is Alex a Dark wizard? Morden certainly thinks he is one, and nearly every other Dark wizard seems to respect him in some way. And they certainly wouldn’t respect a weak Light wizard. After all, there philosophy is about power, not about moral.

    2) Are there some Dark wizards that do ‘good’ things with their power?

    And I guess I would love to hear more about how they deal with the normal humans. Where there big incidents in history? How did they cover those up? Who is responsible for that?

    Is this suggestions for encyclopaedia entries too??

    Angelika: Those are good! I’ll put them in the next Ask Luna article.

    Orion: Sure, if you like. This is just casual feedback, so I can’t promise anything. 🙂

  6. Orion says:

    two suggestions.. an ask Alex to give Luna a break, she probably doesn’t even get paid the poor thing.
    And a shape shifting encyclopaedia entry 🙂

    This might be an Ask Luna… Just about all the Light Council mages, both the Council members and the Keepers, seem to be male. Are there actually fewer female mages, or is it more a case of the old boys’ network?

    So, we know Alex has no qualms about going gambling/playing the lotto to make cash. What about mages with other abilities? I mean, some of the articles already touched on this tangent, like how earth mages are builders and architects and fire mages just extort money, but they never really went into detail. And there’re some bits which seem a bit complex – a mind mage could just walk into a bank and make them hand over a couple million dollars, but that’s the sort of thing that would draw major attention and piss off the Isolationists and Directors (those who aren’t doing the same thing that is). Apart from being mercenaries for hire or just doing what fire mages do, death mages, as you pointed out, pretty much lack any mundane ability whatsoever (or if they do, then I’d like to hear about it too). Also, a lot of mages, like space mages and time mages, are mentioned as usually making their income working for other mages, but what do they do if no other mage is willing to hire them, or if no other local mages have any real income-generating ability either? Space mages could probably go with burglary, but time mages seem kinda screwed in that regard.

    I would love an encyclopedic entry on the Precursor civilization and possibly the Dark Wars, since the two seem to go hand in hand. (I know, I’m over a year late, but hey! might as well ask)
