There should be an Effulgence thread

Plain old discussion of Alicorn stories.

You mean like the Bell Checklist with a more detailed fourth item, or something that also includes specific Bells’ powers like Aether’s anti-anti-causality aura?

Both of those! Why did I not know that this bell checklist actually existed, that's weird...

ETA: Clarification, I think the things that are not bell standard should go in their own list, since they're not like, checklist things.

ETA2: Also, why /does/ Eos "float alone"? (On the same layer where Milliways is absurdly connected.)

What’s the reference for Eos floating alone on a layer where Milliways is absurdly connected?

Would it be possible for Loki!Bell to develop useful spells while deliberately avoiding part of the alphabet? I imagine it would never happen by chance that a spell was missing a symbol. Even the least frequent symbol (assuming a Zipf’s Law distribution) would occur once every couple tens of thousands.

That's from the thread where Glass makes pronouncements about worlds but hell if I know which thread that was. Possibly a party?

Avoiding a symbol would be substantially harder and more creatively limiting than writing a novel without the letter E. It is not impossible but it would increase development time by a factor of at least five and the spell would be worse.

That makes sense

The phrase “floats alone”, as in Stella’s v2 profile, does not appear at all in Effulgence proper (according to Calibre’s search feature).

Alicorn, could you elaborate on that comment? I’m not sure what this would be; what does Eos have that no other (known?) world does?

It sounds to me like just being the only world in its sheaf...?

I thought that was just about it being the origin of Effulgence.

Has Glass heard of the prince or princess of Raxwell? If so, which one?

Probably and prince. (His thing mostly does not affect nonmagical dissemination of information about him.)
