"Do they have to be able to do both? Can't have some making the high resolution shroud, and others make the unstable HM?
Or, does it rely directly on the power source being precisely shaped."


Bezel: "Low resolution HM for the fuel source has a sort of, stutter to it. A series of slower, fewer large bursts, instead of faster, numerous small ones. All relatively speaking, none of this is very noticeable on a macroscopic scale.

When you're trying to use the emitter to cut and you have low resolution fuel, it has this jittery, inconsistent beam."

"Ahh. Hm. No way for you to, mass produce and stockpile the stuff? I suppose that doesn't really solve the problem though, does it.
Resolution I would think you can train, to a degree. How teachable is unstable HM?"

Bezel: "I can stockpile, yes. Doesn't solve the problem.

Resolution and stability are more dependent on someone's innate potential than outside guidance, unfortunately. They can improve with help, but they'll never exceed their natural limitations."

Bezel: "Yeah. Physical skills, know-how, anyone can do those with the right guidance and practice. Magic, you're stuck with what you're born with.

Well, usually."

"Hmmm. Maybe one day that'll change. At least, so it can be done without the, moral cost, and side effects.

And, if my research pans out, maybe everyone will have access to runic magic! That would be interesting."

Bezel: "Would definitely shake up the scene. Magic users would be more replaceable, which is overall a good thing, if not preferable for the people who like their job security.

Might have more issues with dangerous magic users, though. 'Everyone' is a pretty big spectrum of people."

"True. I hear they manage it pretty nicely out in the East, though. Vranhal, and the nearby towns. Apparenty having all your neighbors also be powerful mages is pretty good as deterrence.


Oh. By the way, I was thinking - Are you busy later today? We could go somewhere together."

"Well - Considering how you like to skip meals when I'm not around, I think going out to dinner is a safe bet. What kind of cuisine are you in the mood for?"

Bezel: "Mm."

You see a small smile appear on her face before she turns her attention back to the magazine.



Looks like you have some time to do some work before your date!
