In any event, I assume that at least one rule exists, directly or indirectly: you cannot travel backwards in Creation time by taking a hop through Void. Doing that would lead to all sorts of problems, grandfather paradoxes, and what have you.
That's not an assumption. It's the truth.
I believe the reason we agreed on is that the past is a concept, nothing more. Trying to travel to the past is like trying to travel to pie (not as in a pie, as in, literally, pie).
You can, however, travel to a specific pie. Can you travel to a specific past?
No, because pie has actual instances of pies. Past is a concept only.
Hardly. There are specific pasts. Five minutes ago, fifteen, an hour ago, last week, two years ago, the last time I went to the planetarium, the Renaissance...
That still isn't an accessible instance.

at Aphestadil levels of summoning, the circle is more or less just a fomality. Unless you are an incredibly powerful summoner, dragging such an entity into your service against it's will is more or less impossible. At that point, it's all about the sacrifices, more or less as an act of coaxing the entity to at least listen to what you have to say - and pacify them for daring to call them, if your matter is not to their liking.


that is to say, sacrifices lower the TN depending on their quality. that also works for low level entities. note, they don't always hae to be human souls.

Fuck Aphestadil, I ain't interested in her, I'm interested in whether someone could suddenly transmute Arthur's cup of coffee into a spray pure cocaine while he's drinking it. @Sanure may have said that the drink cannot be spiked, but he never said anything about not spiking the cup itself!

Well, some magic works through words and runes of power; you have mundane languages, which have words resembling an object or aspect, then you have a magic language, which has words actually for an object, and can incant the word to control said object or aspect. If you've ever read the Inheritance Cycle by Paolini, sorcerers and the such use magic this way. For example, the word Brisingr is for fire in the books, and can be incanted to control fire. More complex spells need phrases put in to give the spell specific instructions. The magic language has a name, but it is not known. If one did know the name, then they could control everything and thus have the power of a god.

That is such a creative idea that if I was running the plot I would allow it for a moderately high DC check.

How about chair spiking, or table spiking, or floor spiking? Now with actual spikes!

Wait, do magical circles have to be draw in anything visible? Or can it be transparent? Could you draw one in air and perform air spiking?

Nope, only materials matter (as far as Lunette is concerned at least). Drawing one in air probably wouldn't work, since the gases you'd be using would diffuse and break the circle.

Isn't that one of Kyle's previous methods of instant killing things? Spiking the air in their lungs?

What if you enchanted the gasses to hold formation?

Then you'd have expended stupid amounts of magical effort for such a simple thing, but it would work, yes.

...

So long as you accounted for the enchantments on the gasses, of course.

Is the murder microchip an option with Lunette's magic?

I... believe so? A bunch of very small circles stacked together, right?

I'll give you that, but sometimes you just want to blast a fool and not have to spend 20 minutes yelling at the top of your lungs and gathering your energies doing it.
