Term for any house rules wherein either: the Parma Magica "weakens" any
incoming spells that it doesn't totally stop; or the Parma itself "weakens"
through repeated contact with magics that it stops or weakens; or both.
Belief Defines Reality: one side of the Medieval Paradigm
argument, whereby mythical things happen because people believe in them. This worldview assumes that as people's beliefs
change, reality changes too.
To send private (particularly if embarassing to yourself or others) e-mail to
the list at large. Originally named after an email in which the Sarge
apparently referred to a noted game designer as 'squid boy'.
Crotchety Old Old Fart (a longtime member of the list, like since ArM2 was
a new edition. Alternatively, anyone who's been on the list as long as any
current member can remember.) Also translated "Child Of Our Founders" (by
David Spitzley) which is much more respectful (young whippersnappers
today, don't appreciate their elders, mutter mutter).
Wizard's Grimoire: A third edition product, notorious for having been less
thoroughly playtested and edited than it ought to have been. Supplementary
rules and spells, including some that broke the limits of Hermetic Magic.
