I managed to work "E = mc2" into my little introduction to eumonics. Hehe.
I also worked in some ideas which have not been discussed which I would like comments on. First of all, there is the thing about eumonics draining directly from HP. I mentioned this idea to Dev and he seemed to like it. I like it because it is different, and it makes you think more carefully about your actions. Of course, this has a significant effect on healing spells. Since energy is conserved, a healing spell cannot heal the target more than it hurts the caster. However, healing spells are still useful if the energy for them is drawn from eumonite.
The second interesting point is the ability to draw on others' eumonic energy if they are willing, and the dangers that go with it. I thought this might work well with the whole Kydran battle at Tarikun (I think it was at Tarikun... can't remember... it's the battle that happens long before the start of the story)... he orders his soldiers to allow him to draw their energy for an attack, and he ends up killing many of them accidentally. Or something.
