Notes on things magical

Posted: January 13th, 2009 under Contents.

Topology counts.    Magically transformed items will have the same number as the original.    (Who knew that topology would be a useful mathematical concept in writing fantasy?)

Talking jewelry is a PITA, perhaps especially if no one else can hear it.   Magic jewels always have their dangers, but the ones that try to convince you to do something…especially not easy to live with.

If you’re trying to open a magically locked door and one of your command words or spells causes a key to materialize and the door to unlock, this does not mean you have the situation under control.

Magic is dangerous but so are completely nonmagical ordinary objects like ropes, weights, and stones, if arranged by someone with malice in mind.

It’s not what you don’t know…it’s what you think you know that isn’t so…
