    Shrinking might not reduce the impact of a Vampire's spells either. But Ellen's beams mimic the delivery method so well that they are for all intents and purposes Uryouom energy effects. The only thing we aren't sure of is whether an ellen-beam can stabilize a Greater Seynoulu the way a TF gun beam can. No reason to think it couldn't. Being relative newcomers in conflict with much more seasoned magic users is a common problem with the characters in EGS. The only known S-Rank talents are Rhoda, as stated by Pandora and Nanase an implication of being called "royalty" by the griffins. They ought to be a cut above in some way and effectiveness of spells might be it.

    Agreed. As the "Mistriss of Shrink", if anybody can reduce a horror to pocket size, and keep it there, it would be Rhoda.

    Being magic users themselves, Vampires probably would resist Rhoda's shrinking spells fairly well. If Ellen used her FV5 beam on Not-Tengu then there's limited amounts we can say about how he would resist Rhoda because Ellen's FV5 beam uses Earth magic to generate a TF Gun beam, which uses Uryuom energy. But yeah. In the main, they won't stay small, tall, fat or blonde as long as a none mage would.

    Those threatening Diane would suddenly get very small. Rhoda has Awakened so there isn't anything like that which can happen for her.

    I like her fine as a brunette but anything for SCIENCE!

    The usual magic user route is Lots of study till you make it.

    OK then. That explains why I didn't have a reference. Suggest "Legacy (of Pandora)" or "(Pandora's) Legacy" for clarity's sake in the future since only you understand the title as you write it. Is this the comic you're referencing? Dan's language is vague about Adrian's magic training. Arguably an Immortal need not train an Elf in magic the way humans train other humans. He does seem to have taken to magic very fast and very young. That tends to mitigate against Adrian needing an Awakening, but doesn't prove he didn't need one.

    Could you remind me what the "Legacy of Pandora" is? You seem to be using it as if it were a title and I'm not recognizing it. I'm usually good at keeping my continuity sources straight too...

    Raven has had magic long enough to have unlocked it on an Atari 2600.

    Uryouom energy is a different class of "magical energy" altogether. It is not a ruleset for Earth-magic. Grace, who uses Uryouom energy, cannot cast spells. She cannot even use Tedd's watches. Noah is a greater seynoulu like Grace and he does cast spells but he seems to act under the same rules as any other earth-magic-magic user, not under Uryouom rules. Interesting to note: We have never seen Noah shapeshift. Did he exchange one magical energy system for another? Both the griffins we know cast spells. They seem to have some instinctive insight like Immortals. They most closely match the rules for elves to be honest. We also know that there are humans over there because of the casual way the Griffins treated Nanase. EGS-Prime's Earth still has a lot of weird stuff in the margins. EGS-Prime could even have a native griffin population. I don't know how behind that I am but it's a possibility. Adrian Raven uses magic. Did he Awaken or simply unlock that ability? Maybe Griffins unlock the ability to use magic at a certain age as well... I tend to think there's 3 rulesets. Rules for Immortals/Ancients, maybe others. Rules for magical creatures (Griffins, also half-Immortals like Elves) Rules for mortals (commonly humans). I tend to want to think the rules are the same on both sides of the world. I would also think that the common general rules tend to have specific implementations for each type that follows it (Even if all elves "taste" magic with their ears, for example, If Griffins have that same sense, it would work in an unrelated way) I would speculate that a mortal with a magical affinity makes the possessor of that affinity a little bit of a magical creature in the narrow sense that the affinity, not the possessor, follows the magical creature rules and remains through Magic resets. Edit: Though how and affinity expresses itself would depend on the current mortal-magic ruleset and could/would change when Magic resets.

    There's a lot we don't know about the other half of the world. We know ambient magic energy flows from one world to the other and probably from the other back. The simplest way of running magic use for the whole is both component worlds use magic by the same rules.They're one world not two when considered metaphysically. but magic seems to have one set of rules for humans and another for Immortals, so magic may not do things the simplest way. if we decide Griffins are "magical creatures", what rules do they use? Human? Immortal? A third set? What is the other half of the world even like? Andrea was very bad at hiding, which suggests she doesn't need to hide in her own world. A magical world then? Magus' home, perhaps?.. What happens to magical energy that is used in spells? Sarah puts 'dents" in Moperville's magic buildup and the energy she uses is by definition no longer trying to move to the other side of the world. Is it recycled? If not, how is new magical energy generated?
  12. It looked like they were giving Maria food near the end. I thought that was to keep her him in the area...
  13. ...and maybe corrupt an innocent Grace

    Is Merv Griffin still around?
  15. Democrat wins in solidly Republican districts would look great phrased as a referendum on Trump. the media could run headlines like "Public has lost confidence in Trump" etc.
  16. I find I have to discard my MTV-trained instinct to follow the lead singer and step back and watch a sort of kinetic painting occur on my screen instead. I love how much screen time is given to the other bandmates. The composition of WTF got me laughing when they started thrown balls at the one band member. The imagery was... End Love the goose following the band around looked unscripted until the end. The animation technique eminded me of Peter Gabriel's "Sledgehammer"
  17. I just got finishing watching this Ted music/talk. Love the music and the videos are awesome. Talk was pretty good too.
  18. Warren Zevon is an interesting and inspired choice. He's best known for the werewolf with a Chinese menu in his hand...
  19. Hopefully their closing time doesn't equate to their "we're all going home" time... Maybe shoot for being there at 3:45 or 4:00?
  20. a close race makes sense given the hoo-hah going on right now.
  21. And being made to was in through the out door?
  22. Charlotte's expression seems to say "wow, I didn't expect it to be like THIS...."

    The hardware limits on the TF gun could be why Tedd shifted over to working with Earth-type magic instead of Uryouom energy.
