Favorite use of Magic
« on: December 16, 2004, 04:22:16 AM »

The recent greater/lesser path topic gave me an idea for a new thread.  There is, of course, a lot of use of magic/magical acts presented in Feist's books.  So, what do you think has been the best magical act done by someone/thing in Feist's universe?

Be sure to post the book title you are referencing first, then use the spoiler code for the actual description, so those who haven't read a particular book yet can steer clear of your post.

I must confess, I'm waring over several choices in my head still, so I'm not ready to post my own answer yet.  But I did want to get the topic going and get those minds out there churning.  I think we're going to have some fun with this topic.

Magician and Servant of the Empire......

I would have to go with Milambers Rage at the Imperial Games. I was just hooked and in the moment while reading it. I tended to like Servant of the Empires version of it more in a way cause it was in the eyes of the crowd. You gotta love it!!!!!

I go for the monks magic. I probably like it cause it is the most realistic, as in, some things sortha happen IRL.

Spoiler: show

One of the things I remember was in magician, the monk going to kelewan, and going in trance when he got tortured. Also, the healing magic is always nice.


I wouldnt mind being able to do that.

Yesyes, no death and destruction for me.

Just in general this one...but I think it's cool the way Pug and some of the others can vanish and reappear somewhere else at their will. I guess the best offensive piece of magic was in Magician. Everything about that moment was just awesome! That is probably Feist's best piece/part in all of his books.

I agree with Magnus and Magician.

[span style=\'font-size:14pt;line-height:100%\']TREMBLE AND DESPAIR, FOR I AM POWER!![/span]

Classic bit of destruction there. It was also great reading in Servant of the Empire from the other point of view.

(Did I manage to avoid any spoiler-ish stuff? I think I did :lol:)

Can we please put the BOOK NAME you are referring to. Thanks to people not doing that I have just been spoilt for Exhiles Return. Whats the point of putting it in spoilers if you dont let us know where it from and tell us after we have read it. Geez

lol Yeah. What a creation Nakor was by Feist. It's a great 'trick' that. I wouldn't mind learning it myself.  :tongue:

Teleporting is excellent though. That for me is still the best.

Well, the one most quoted so far was certainly on my list of candidates, but I think I'm going to have to take a contrary position and vote for Rage of a Demon King

I know this is the last piece of magic on everyone's mind, but here's one I enjoyed a bit:

Spoiler: show

In Magician when Kulgan took some device out of his bag and made it all foggy so that the Moredhels couldn't see Duke Borric's company. And of course although it may not be considered magic,

I thought that the Tower of Testing was interesting.
