Combat Final Arena Set-up Questions... Well, one question for now...

Is the spectator-protecting force-field only transparent to visible light EM Radiation, or what?

No. and its also not 'just' a forcefield.

And just a side note... remember, generally the problem with force fields isn't that a PFG can't generate a force field or that force fields themselves are too complicated. It's that making them on the personal/individual scale/shape is a challenge and, more importantly, containing a power supply for them that is man carriable seriously limits their capability. Fixed installation fields? Very much a non-issue. Far easier to build, maintain, and power than the wards that back them up.

It helps when you don't need a really, really long extension cord.

Don't Drick and Drive.

Ah actually, really really long extension cord? Covering entire continents and harnessing the power of nuclear weapons?

Been there, done that, our great grandparents did that.

It's cutting the cord and carrying all that power around with you that we haven't quite managed to do.

Well, whatever the forcefield is, it's brand new, since Fey destroyed the old one last semester.


Considering how many devisors and gadgeteers worked on it, I'm guessing that the shield has a lot of fancy tricks up its sleeves.

Well, given that gadgeteers can duplicate warper affects that create extradimensional pockets that are larger on the inside than on the outside, I would that OUR problem with mobile stuff: battery life vs battery weight, would be less of an issue in Whateley if you have enough money.

jmhyp, I believe you are thinking of Mobius who is the one who creates those devises. Not a gadgeteer, as warper effects by definition ignore the laws of physics and thus can't be duplicated by gadgeteers.

Thank You for story comments appreciated and help me know me they are being read and liked. :-) Note: My story comments can't nor are trying to replace reading the stories, simply my way of enjoying them and letting the authors know I enjoy them.

Thuban can do the same thing with room sized area.

They aren't gadgets? And Ayla trust millions of dollars of her equipment not to go Poof in a devise. I'd have to revise my opinion of Ayla.

Perhaps the warp effect to create the intradimensional pocket requires a warper. But I still thought that stablizing the warp effect could be a gadgeteer effect. The problem here is that you can't patent the entire process because you need a warper to generate the warp field. The wiki just says Mobius is a "devisor", no MID, so that's inconclusive.

Well, Domoviye had Mobius use Mythril to stabilize his warp stuff... I don't know if that's based on anything canon, though...

The Jade stories state that Thuban uses mithril to stabilize his space-warping constructs, so I imagine that's where Dom picked it up from.
