I want to build a FAQ section to cover some of the basics (partly because I have not had the time to build out the wiki more) so I need from you, QUESTIONS! You can ask any question you want, but I will filter what I actually to choose to answer. I am looking for questions about:
In The Academy some additional details of my magic system were revealed. One of those details is that magic is natural, and thereby has to follow the laws of nature. One example that you learn in The Academy is that magi accomplish flying by pushing energy behind them the same as any mundane means of flight. Part of the rules of nature that govern the use of magic is this concept of “lines of power.” That is each magus is limited in what they can do by whatever kind of magic they were born with. For example, Flame is a pyromancer and illusionist. This means that no matter how hard she studies she can never learn to cast a lightning bolt. Her power is restricted to that of fire and illusions.
No one has even come close to guessing the answer yet, so I am going to give everyone a hint. First, those of you that guessed Dr. Rannor, I must admit you did pick the most logical choice! I had not even considered him until your guesses came in. I may have to consider a book with him as the main character after the current story arc is completed. Dr. Rannor does play a big part in The Academy but he is not the main character.
Great news! I have received the full color proof of the cover for The Academy! That means we are only weeks away from its release. With this announcement I am finally able to announce the contest I have been promising since the inception of this website. The winner of this contest will get a free autographed copy of the print edition of The Academy. The contest is simple. Go back and re-read The Enemy of an Enemy, and guess which character from that novel will be the main character of The Academy. Here is a hint, it is not Grandmaster Vydor!
