    Oh Mr Greenwood that leaves so many many ways in which you might exploit the system AO implemented. I mean based on what I’ve read you could theoretically craft many similar effect magic using a variety of means if your morality was flexible enough and AO didn’t put the smack down on you for your impertinent behavior which after the time of troubles is always a risk.

    I mean members of a particular faith could theoretically make a mythal assuming they had enough high mages. A powerful enough necromancer could theoretically harvest enough souls to craft something similar though likely with some twisted side effects. Then of course the Ilithid are powerful enough that if they set their minds to it they’d quite likely accomplish it not to mention the aboleth.

    Then of course you have the shadow weave and who knows what Shar is willing to do to get practitioners of her weave. And could you imagine what would happen if these shadow mages got a hold of the Netherese scrolls?

    Then you’ve got Asmodeus who could potentially trick some wizards into making him a mythal for his own nefarious purposes.

    Lastly you have beholders that warp reality to birth new beholders but based on what’s been described about them, this reality warping effect happens when they dream of themself in one form or another. What would happen if a beholder dream themself into a mythal?

    Just some of things you could exploit if you really really wanted to and you were ok with a whole lot of risks. I mean you screw up with a beholder and that’s going to be a really bad day.

    Personally I find the idea for a story fascinating but for game play boring. I mean a mythal by its design is meant to defend a city which is kind of counter productive in a game meant for adventure which is kind of hard to do if you’re stuck in a city making a mythal that is a right pain to move.

    Finding loopholes to craft really awesome gadgets for game play is so much more fun. I mean who want a cursed bag of random thieving. Nothing like a sentient bad that manages a five finger discount without the fingers only to dump the item out in front of the nearest lawman.

    Wizard’s failed creations make for much more interesting stories to play through and can add more than a bit of tension to keep it progressing. Would be a terrible reality but a funny story.
