  1. Hello all, I want to discuss what it is we all think Kairominas can do with Lancing. What can Lancing do? I initially thought it allowed energy manipulation, as most descriptions of it seem to make that obvious, but then there's chapter 3. I'm not well versed in pigment science, so I could use some help. Would Kai drawing out the pigment still classify as energy manipulation? Pulling the moisture and splitting the molecule all fall under that umbrella, but I am unsure about the pigment stuff. As a note, this is a discussion as to what Lancing can do on Alornia, or in a world where it functions in the way Kai is familiar with. This is not a discussion about how Lancing works after Sophie hacks Maltese to let Kai control heat. Thanks for the help! Edit: After looking it up, pigmentation alteration is a form of energy manipulation.
  2. Hey guys, I'm currently working on the page for Lancing, and there's a couple of things I wanted to ask. First, Lancing is a magic system, but is non-Cosmere. What info-box should I use? I normally try to look at other similar pages, but most of the magic pages are Cosmere, and the template clearly indicates that (with Shardic influence, focus, and typing). I'm currently going to use it and omit all the Cosmere sections (like Rithmatist), but let me know if there is another template I should be using, or if there are sections to the template I am unawares of. Second, the Perfect State footer infobox should have Lancesight replaced with Lancing. I've mentioned this before, but then got busy and neglected my quest to finish the Perfect State articles, so it escaped my mind. To reiterate my previous arguments, I felt, upon reading the Novella, that "Lancing" was the magic system, and "Lancesight" was a feature within that system. This is similar to seeing blue lines when burning iron/steel in Allomancy. If you were merely waiting for the page to exist before making the change, my apologies for beating the dead horse. The page should be up and running today P.S. - As a side note unrelated to Lancing, it would be nice if the template pages listed all the potential sections that are usable. Just a thought.
