Please clarify what you mean by "magicians" because the word that's translating into for me just means "people who do magic" and while I'm sure there are some right dickish magic users out there I don't think the entire category as I know it deserves that kind of vitriol? Does it have something to do with the books? What's wrong with the books?

Magicians don't do magic. WE do magic. Magicians are all, "Look I drew a shape on the ground! I'm so exhausted, go build a house for me and bring me a glass of wine while you're at it. Isn't my life so hard?"

Wow, okay, that is not how magic works where I'm from. I assume you're being coerced into this whole thing somehow?

Permalink

Coerced? No, never. I stay in this world because I love the magicians SO MUCH.

Sorry. I shouldn't be rude. You're not a magician.

It's okay, I know perfectly well that shitty, shitty circumstances put your temper on a hair-trigger.

If something puts you on edge, you should try to avoid it if there's no reason not to. You can't think straight under distress anyway.

Trust me, I would if I could.

Dealing with factions whose values are aligned with me solely due to various situational constraints, which I expected would persist for some time but are not actually persisting as much as I would like. I want to be able to just give my allies forum access (through me, probably, but I act as a communications relay all the time anyway) and I probably can't do that with any of them.

How persuasive can posts be before they get blocked as hazardous, anyway? That's not really a good question, it's just passing the buck, I would be responsible for filtering anyone I gave forum access to if they seemed close to successfully manipulating you into doing various things.

The impression I got is that here words are just words. Nothing stronger will come through. If you know a master orator and manipulator, though... They could still convince people of things, depending on the people and things.

Riley and I both have others vetting any actions we take based on the forum. It is unlikely that we could be compromised through a text medium.

It can be tricky to define the boundary between ordinary persuasion and memetic hazards, but if I'm ever uncertain, I'll tend to err on the side of caution, since the consequences are less severe. (I apologize in advance to anyone whose posts I have to send back for rewriting.)

Tama,

I am sorry that vandalism is causing you troubles. What is happening?

 

Jinx,

Yes, running out of magic can be very unpleasant. Eating something might help?

I hope you feel better soon.

War is frustratingly futile. Sort of noble, in a perverted and ruinsome way, but it destroys entire cultures on occasion, and creates irritating refugees who try to eat my gardens. I even have to let them, lest I sour what little tolerance the humans grant me too much and they stop sending artists to me.

I may have to send the Emperor of the Triple Suns and the king of Raastina a sternly worded letter at this rate.

What awful things would you rather not see in the world?

Myself the Orz will answer. You, Astra Nepthys. You *spit* of hate. It is a *silly* *color*. I am *spit* best word *frumple*. Maybe you do not know. *Frumple* be *round* and yet *lumpy*. So bad!!!

You *spit* of *dissolving*; this *house* is *dissolving* before, but not yet. It is *frumple*!

You are too *sick* to *play*! Orz are not *dancing* with *cousins* any more, but it is too bad! We are *squeezing* the *juice*!

Hatred is a remarkably silly emotion in most cases. It's understandable some of the time though. Hatred drives us to reach beyond what we would otherwise be able to do like all strong emotions do. Sadly, that reaching tends not to be directed in productive directions. It's rare that hatred can be funneled into solving problems instead of creating more.

Bunch of kids with nothing better to do! That is what happened U_U

Permalink

That's sad, for both of you. Why do they have nothing to do? Could you close the entrances when you aren't around?

Permalink

I would prefer that people not murder my trees in aim only of not needing to construct their villages a short walk farther away.

Permalink

No easy solution to that.

If talking about it doesn't work, maybe make your trees further away from villages?

I suppose you could plant the Ivy, but it's very dangerous to those without strong telepathy, I'm not sure how safe it would be for you or the others near you.
