Maybe - I was answering Orril, to avoid magical magnetism with a non-working explanation.

I don't believe magnetism can be attributed to any element as it sia combination of all.  It moves(magnetic poles reverse) so it can be considered fire or wind.  If flows in a dome like manner(water), yet it is caused because of earth and attracts objects of the earth.

The question is, do we have magnetism on Caelereth? ;)

I think we would deffinately have magnetism. On earth it was supposedly discovered in antiquity by Magnes according to Pliny the Elder in The Natural History  BOOK XXXVI. THE NATURAL HISTORY OF STONES. CHAP. 25.

Well I would have to say we do .... as I did a search for the word "compass" and it brought up more than a few results (8 to be precise). Since a compass is based on magnetism I would have to answer with a resounding yes.;)    

P.S.: I would think the easiest way to draw a weapon with magic could be found within the element of wind. As it is the element of motion and moving the weapon from point A to point B requires movement. So I shall leave the specifics upto So Orri as he is the resident wind mage.

@Orril: Like Silfer said, your theory doesn't work.  Perhaps we could start a thread to discuss magnetism, but it might be better to wait a while first.  There are too many topics already, I think.  

@Talia: Well, that'd be one way to get around having to explain how magnetic compassess work on a disc-shaped world.  However, as Twen pointed out, we apparently do have compassess mentioned on the site.  We would have to address that somehow, either by altering those entries, or by finding some other ways to make compassess work (ie. not using magnetism).  

@Xera: My point wasn't about whether it might be quicker to draw a weapon using telekinesis or to do it manually, but the fact that only magi would be able to draw a weapon telekinetically.  In a tribe that has virtually no magi, a weapon that is designed to be used by magic users is going to be pretty useless.  

As for reagents, well, I did say that they are still really undeveloped.  They might end up being the magical equivilents of catalysts in chemical reactions, but we'll have to wait and see.  In any case, remember that catalysts only make reactions easier (which does also cause them to go faster), but they do not star the reactions themselves.
