It's not 'my' way.. it is the way that has been agreed upon by everyone here. It is also the way you tried to blatantly overthrow, whilst showing you know nothing of the way magic works in Caelereth, and aparently ignorant of the fact that the system as it is has been painstakingly polished into perfection, or something close there to.

Please do not be offended by the posts of other people opposing your idea.

I dont really get why would should a mage use a runestone when teleporting. The only problem in here is that almost all the proposed theories about it is that it should be xeua and ecua combined but one mage cannot master both. And the laws of nature defines magic in caelreth.

About your comment on teleportation. That it should not be as complicated as we all want it to be. Because readers would not comprehend the mechanism of the spell. Mmmmmm..... That's the point. A mage should never be able to cast this spell as easy as you cast lvl 1 spells. Because in a battle field, it would be very awkward if mages appears here and there especially if they are sorrounded by enemies. The point is to make it complicated enough that not all could get it so that not all mages could perform the spell. We are also (I think) making it as dangerous as possible so that mages will not use it now and then.

But one question. Can you restrenghten (sorry for the spelling) the links of car'all ones it is broken by ecua using ecua as well. (Just like removing the spell so the strenght of the car'all would be back to normal and the caster could go back to physical form?

But do tell me the difference between Teleportation and Summoning, i never realy got it..

The mechanism is the same really :)

Teleportation/summoning isn't really made difficult intentionally I think (though it's certainly not a bad thing it is), it's just that the only decent explanation with our current magic system (which won't change) makes it really hard to do pull off such spells. And that's not even taking into account any line of sight problems.

And you can only strengthen or weaken links that are still there. A broken link would have to be restored first before it could be strengthened. It's like a lamp with a dimmer. You can play with the dimmer all you want, if someone took out the lamp it won't make a difference.

A spell is not a 'thing', but an action.  So, basically, talking about removing them doesn't usually make sense. However, the effects can usually be reversed with a spell that has the opposite effect.  Reversing a Ecua effect with Ecua is probably not possible though.

I thought that it was defined that links are never truly broken, only weakened to the extent that they become effectively negliglble? 

Teleportation wasn't made difficult intentionally, but we wanted it to be very difficult anyway, so it's a good thing.

Maybe we should just create an article for the ximaxian library so that the students of ximax can see how far the study have reach by its researchers  at least it has an entry in the library but not as a spell but an ongoing study. Also we can do it on other topic that is most debated......

Thanks

Yeah we should just create an article explaining how far the excellent mages have reached about this spell until we finish arguing about it.
