I haven't finished the Chaos War series yet (I have rather sparse interest in the novels), but is there any storyline reason for its massive mechanical flaws? 500XP and a really, really expensive focus is a lot to ask for to cast a bad Horrid Wilting. The banishment is alright I suppose, but from what I heard it didn't do that in the novel (Tas and a female character banished Chaos).|

|#3raistlinroxApr 22, 2004 13:34:56||But Raistlin made a pretty big deal of it... The whole "Magius is the only mage to cast this spell... Nobody else has been able to cast it.." that's just paraphrasing of course, from memory. If i'm wrong, please let me know, but Raist thought that that spell was the $h!t when he gave it to Palin. I was just wondering about this the other day as well.|

Correction: Palin Majere was the first (and propably the last) person ever to cast Magius's light of truth. Not even Magius himself was able to cast it.

|#7The_White_SorcererApr 22, 2004 16:46:17||The book was destroyed after the casting. Unless someone re-researches the spell, then Palin Majere was indeed the only one ever to cast it.|
