What’s a matter Mage? are they like earth Mages?
Sort of. They’re what you get if you take the earth and stone manipulation of an earth mage and strip out the shields and direct combat abilities – they’re great at manipulating solid inanimate objects but they can’t really do anything else. They’re pretty rare as far as I know – I haven’t met any my age. Supposed to be really good crafters.
So just between us girls (and possibly the rest of he internet) have you ever had a thing for Alex
Ah . . . Okay, answering that between us girls is one thing. Posting it up on this website where it can be read by anyone who knows how to work a browser . . . no thanks. (Not least because I’ve got a sneaking suspicion Alex reads this column to check up on me.) Send me a private message or something.
Dear Luna, its mentioned in the Earth Magic entry that earth magic is one of the primary types of magic specialising in engineering, what is the other kind of magic and what can it do?
It’s called matter magic, and see question 1.
Dear Luna, various characters have been shown to have glowing eyes when using magic, what causes this? and does it have anything to do with the amount of power that mage has?
It’s just a visual effect as far as I know. You sometimes get it when a mage overchannels, usually when their control’s off for some reason. If you see it it’s usually a smart move to get out of the way.
Dear Luna, maybe a strange question but can you get half-human hybrids from the more human like magical creature and humans?
You’ve been reading too many paranormal romance novels.
Dear Luna, what is the Gate Rune? and what determines how strong ones magic is? is a mages power static but they learn better control? or can they develop their strength further?
I don’t think those questions have anything to do with each other . . .
The Gate Rune was the doodad the factions were fighting over in the Gate Rune War. I think a group of Dark mages had it but couldn’t use it properly, so they had to attack the Council to get the bits they needed (or it might have been the other way around, can’t remember). Then there were different factions and it all overlapped with what was going on in World War II. It’s kind of confusing.
Magic strength is really complicated, so I’m not going to get into that here.
Okay, you’re starting to push your luck now.
Dear Luna, a persons magic is linked to their personality right? have you ever heard of someone’s magic changing? for example someone loses there memory from a head injury and wakes up with a different personality. or someone who was once overweight but loses it and changes their mentality in the process?
I . . . what? What does being overweight have to do with changing your mentality? And waking up with a different personality . . . why are you even asking this stuff?
Look, these questions of yours are just getting too weird.
Do you think there will ever be a cross over story with both Alex and Harry Dresden? Ie a collaboration piece between the 2 authors? It would be fantastic to see how these characters interact. thank you!
I don’t actually know who this Harry Dresden guy is. People keep writing in about him assuming I do, though. (If anyone DOES know who he is and why everyone assumes I’d know him, feel free to write in and tell me.) So . . . maybe, I guess? I honestly have no clue about the answer to this one, sorry.
