Thanks Mina! A couple of notes:

- Re repetition in Olesian Obstruction & Ardelor Hypothesis: These are meant as stand-alone entries. So a person who reads them for the first time (with some background info on Krean magic) should be able to understand what is going on without having to reread this massive Overview each time. Also, I think if you read all three one after the other that might have contributed to the deja vu effect :P

- Re magic mechanical: I was purposefully vague - but it seems neither you nor Fox sold was sold. I need some more time to work out the "how exactly" but what is there should suffice as an overview, I hope. I will answer your question in the main Magic Mechanical entry. Let us hope I find a better name for it by then!

Btw the Krean have no objection to altering reality directly. They only oppose "force" when it intervenes directly with someone else's freewill (eg "compulsion", or directly manipulating someone's mental state). Was that what you meant?

Bottom-line: If there are no issues with the entry, then it can go up? I don't think I can live through another rewrite :P

Erhm? Mina?

I have nothing further to add here. When will this go up?

So they are each going to get their own entries?   shocked

*nods*  I thought that you meant they opposed things like directly altering reality too, hence the persuasive style. 

Well, I don't think you really need to rewrite anything, except maybe some minor changes (Who is A.R.?), but it doesn't seem complete yet.  In particular, there's the vagueness of Magic Mechanical (which should be fine if you are giving it its own entry), and the lexicon.  If Arti is fine with it, I suppose it could be put up first, and the remaining bits added later.

As I said, magic mech will get its own entry + at the moment I have no idea how exactly it works (ie what exactly are its rules/principles).

The entry can be uploaded without the lexicon - which can go up later as a separate entry.

A.R? Easter-egg. Not disclosing the identity until the person entry is up (but it should be pretty obvious, Judith I think unintentionally stumbled over it already). Btw there is a reason why she is only known as A.R ;)

Could you be a little more specific as to what does not seem complete?

I think that should cover most of it.

Really.  I think you more or less addressed them in the last post. 

1. The part on Magic Mechanical was really short, and feels more like an introduction when compared to the more detailed sections the others got.  But it's getting its own entry, so that should do, even if it would be better if there was more written about it. 

2. The lexicon, as I mentioned, was mostly incomplete.  But if you're taking it out and adding it later whether as its own entry or as part of a revised version of this entry, I'm fine with it. 

3. The use of the A.R. placeholder, I think, contributes a lot to making it feel incomplete too.  I think it's a little iffy, but I'm not sure an entry should be held back from being uploaded over something this minor.  It's ultimately up to Arti to decide though. 

So anyway, like I said, I'm fine with doing it this way.  As long as Arti is fine with it too, I don't think there should be any problems. 

Edit: Briefly looked through it again.  I think you should probably also avoid abbreviations like 'L1' and 'aka'.  But I assume they would be changed when it's sent to Arti or when Arti is preparing it anyway.

Sorry Mina - what I meant was whether you would be putting the blue arrow or whether I had to do that myself :)
