Power level is different from skill level. Bam. Now you know.

I do think the mystery should be maintained, but I also think that new magicker players should get some more guidance than they do. A lot of new gicker players go in blind, having no idea what they are doing, and get frustrated--new 'symbol' command notwithstanding. I know that starting spell words get sent to the players of new gickers, so maybe a little blurb could be included on the difference between the actual hidden skill level and the power level, just to name one thing that confused me in the beginning.

I remember when I was a noob gemmer, I had trouble keeping up with others and the expectations of the higher-ups because I did not have a good grasp on these things (even though I thought I did.) I know it's not all about coded power, but the way things are, the impenetrable magick system encourages people to go search for spoilers.

1. I don't even know what you mean by "hidden skill level" and I've played a bunch of mages in the past. I don't think it really matters, since you yourself say it's "hidden" and therefore the player doesn't ever see it anyway. The only coded thing he'd need to know about is the power level.

2. Other than this hidden skill level, the entire magick system is spelled out in detail in the help files:

How come every time I get a new phone number, it was always previously used by someone with incredibly bad credit?

This bill collectors also will not accept that it's a new number and I haven't a freakin' clue who the other person was or where she's hiding.

Likely all but the magicker guilds, Brokkr said they want to retain the mystery.

Whoa!  I like it.  Are we going to get branch paths for all Guilds now?  Because I think that would be super helpful.

Non-Armageddon Discussion / Re: MeTekillot mental illness thread

Is this the thread to complain about mental illness in because my anxiety has been really bad. To the point where I'm convinced my character is annoying people when they Way them and that they're uncool and nobody likes them or wants to hang out with them.

It's really annoying and incredibly convincing.

Hey, even if they are it's just your character.  Not you.  Y'know?
