On Sorcery

Quote

“Daeryss was the first of many evil sorcerers I’ve seen in my time.  Sorcery is not a force for good or evil, it just is and how the Spire’s power is used depends on the wielder.  Some use it to do good, others to wreak havoc upon the world.  Governed by the Towers, the wizards and mages of your day haven’t a tenth of the power of those born before the Reckoning, let alone those born under the Full Radiance, but the choice to do good or evil remains.  Uranol, Horatin, Numkargol, the list goes on and on.  Surely your memory’s not so far gone that you’ve forgotten the Witchghoul’s wickedness?”  The Wizard of the Blue Lagoon

 

On Cheap magik

“Cheap magik!  Hah!  That was grandfather’s great jest.  He could never bring himself to admit that Spirit’s weave had value, much to the consternation of the others.”  Wizard of the Blue Lagoon
