  1. Having non-magical antagonists at this point is like having non-superpowered opponents for Superman—they would have to balance their lack of direct power with other forms of power (e.g. someone who can manipulate social and government systems), or with having enough smarts to outwit our protagonists.

    There is a key premise that I won't spoil, we were wondering how plausible it is, and if so, why has it not been tried in real life.

    I believe the US government tried something like that against hurricanes and it turned out to have too weak of an effect to be worthwhile.

    Japan was not shy about sacrificing their own troops during the war. This weapon makes sense from their point of view at the time.

    “Some of you may die, but that is a sacrifice I am willing to make”.

    They didn’t mind the troops dying, but that was only if they succeeded in killing the enemy as well. Having the soldier fail to get close enough to make the attack was a waste.


  4. In the original 1990 version of the PC game “Civilization”, a spearman had a 1-in-6 chance of defeating a tank, because all units in that game had only one hit point—so basically, it’s like being able to win any fight by rolling a natural 20. This was fixed in later games in the series by giving all units multiple hit points, often with tougher units getting more than others.


  5. Arthur does let her in on the less sensitive internal bulletins from his work, such as the warning about the “do I know you” phenomenon. She presumably knows that he knows details about Magic, but the two of them may not know that the other is a Wizard/Mage.


  6. With the declaration by the US Supreme Court that he is essentially immune from prosecution, a lot of people have come to believe that the only way to be rid of Trump is if he dies. Secondly, if he were to die before declaring his running mate at the convention next week, then the Republicans would be left without a candidate and would have to scramble to nominate one, which means that right now was the “best” time for such an attempt if the intention was to wreck the chances of a Republican win and not just to eliminate Trump himself.
