    All magic must now be used by gestalt beings with at least three components. What do you mean, all humans are individuals? What's an individual?

    They actually have a great rating so far -- it will be an infinite time before they fill up. Unfortunately for them, mathematicians can post downvotes based on expected poor service at infinity...

    No further worries about magic hiding -- Tedd has power to bend worlds to her will, and now she's angry enough at WoM to do it...
  4. Story Monday January 29, 2018

    If the WoM is an AI (probably powered by Magic instead of technology) it might wonder what happens after the cycle of change ends. A good tactic might be to reassure it that it will still have a purpose and won't suddenly be decomissioned.

    Let anyone who wants to get magic by studying hard for more than a few years, then have most of them get "Firefly flicker" or "levitate feather" as their one and only spell. How many people won't quit before then with the odds really low?
  6. Story Monday January 29, 2018

    Would the magical equivalent of a Dyson sphere be a series of "empowering shelters" laid out along the paths magic follows (does EGS have ley lines?) where magic users can sleep and absorb some usable magic before it finds it's way to a "drain" area like Moperville and gets recycled?
  7. Story Monday January 29, 2018

    Arthur is in an excellent position for an Appeal to Force "argument": He can threaten Tedd's father's job; Tedd's access to alien technology; and possibly Tedd's, his father's, and his friends' freedom. Of course, the Will of Magic just might recognize really blatent coercion and stop listening to the person using it...

    It's the silhouette of the tiny mouse form she is transforming out of.
  9. Story, Wednesday November 8, 2017

    Perhaps Magus finally got the nerve to tell Ellen (or anyone who would tell her) and she is doing everything she can to get him a body so he can help with the impending vampire attack.

    When it really hurts is when the metal doesn't deform at all -- instead, you distort to match the metal.
  11. Story Friday September 1, 2017

    Wonderful how clearly Mr. Shive shows the distinction between bravado (this comic) and genuinely being relaxed ([url=http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=2382]here[/url]).
  12. Story Friday August 25, 2017

    What about a usually beneficial, ethically neutral spell to improve strength and health by scooping up excess energy -- all the prospective abberation needs to do is overpower it with an intentional disregard for where, how, or from whom the energy is taken.

    Chaotic systems can also typically compound the effects of quantum uncertainty until they reach macroscopic levels; it just takes a bit longer.
  14. Story Friday August 18, 2017

    I'm guessing that originally it was personal feelings that were preserved, then someone found a way to instead use that capability to pass on more knowledge and a bigger "starter seed" of power, and the temptation to save more and more power crept up on them untill personal feelings got crowded out.
  15. Story, Monday August 7, 2017

    I'm seeing this more as a "mother bear" who has lost her sense of proportion and barely remembers that tearing apart someone only indirectly related to a threat to her family might be crossing the line...some member of her family may need to make an impassioned plea not to flash-fry that private investigator, for example.
  16. Story, Monday July 31, 2017

    This puts a good lower limit on future planning, but inadvertantly puts a strict ceiling on accumulation of wisdom with age -- no one who has raised children is around to advise future generations.
  17. Story Friday August 4, 2017

    Tedd and/or Tess has always been cute when refusing to let her fear of disapproval stop him/her, but (s)he's even cuter when she feels hope that this time there might not be any disapproval.
  18. Pinup? Saturday 29, 2017

    Well, it's been established that Ellen can add power to her basic fV5 beam, which amoung other things can add a "knockback" effect...perhaps the victim subject is slumped back against Tedd's zap pad in a heap.
  19. Story Friday July 21, 2017

    The iron in hemoglobin (which is where the iron is in blood) is easily broken down and recycled in the body, and presumably in the digestive tract as well. That would at least sidestep any difficulty in absorbing iron.
  20. Story, Monday July 17, 2017

    Also, her grandfather is still around and occasionally checking up on her.
  21. Story Wednesday June 28, 2017

    He's not protected, though, against the authorities deciding in a panic to crack down on his being allowed to even possess (working or non) tech. It could be an uphill battle for him to be allowed to re-establish magic..who says the authorities (I'm looking at you, Arthur) really want him to succeed?
  22. Story Wednesday June 28, 2017

    Well, magic is basically telling Tedd to abandon his own plans...and by the way, get ready to do some chores for Magic. That has to rankle. That's why I also like PCR's answer in the last panel.
  23. NP, Friday June 23, 2017

    The way that they would protest is to claim the saying should be "Uryuom at heart" or "Elvish at heart", since the point of the saying is that those can be close to the same thing.
  24. Story Monday June 12, 2017

    How about quarter-immortal grandchildren being impossible now, because some very ancient reset changed the way mortals used to have children by/with magic, and the immortals chose to forget because the loss of families is too heartbreaking to remember? Especially if, say, immortal/immortal reproduction is difficult because two doses of chaotic magic is really rough on growing lifeforms...

    What about martial arts habits that say, "If your center of balance is here and your target is there, use this hand."?
