Well, it’s still technically Thursday by my time. Barely.

Anyway, new page!

Will make it my goal to build up a buffer next week. We’ll see. Historically when I do that I just start posting them faster 😐

Bringing magic to a gunfight is sort of cheating. While Avon, the Orish, and quite a few others have weaponized autocasters, they are far from universal, and unless you can use the fancier ones well, usually not as effective as a gun. Their main selling point would be trying to defeat mages, and effecting mages with magic directly is notoriously difficult, and most indirect approaches are equally thwarted by the same defense.

I would note that based on this page one could assume there is a link between being a designer child and being a mage. While it’s not one-to-one (Don, for example, does not appear to  be a natural mage), it isn’t unrelated. There is more then one reason for this though.
