She seems pleased about that.

Here's how you do it! As the notes said, it's a matter of changing the focus of a bolt that's carrying an effect in a particular way, which weakens the effect as it increases the color. Pradnakt demonstrates mostly with blue - "the color of each effect varies from person to person; if there's a way to change it I haven't figured it out. Extra pain gets blue, for me."

She tries it, throwing kinetic force.

It comes out a very pale lavender.

"Not bad. It's mostly practice from there - sustaining a bolt and changing its color is good for it, or if you want to just throw a bunch of lightning around I have a statue that's good for practicing on; it's a ways from the houses so if you catch something on fire you don't need to worry about them."

"That sounds useful."

Permalink

"Yup." She starts heading out that way.

"Karzel found the trail it's on the other night, if you noticed he was a little shaken."

Permalink

"Mm--I wouldn't say shaken, exactly."

Permalink

"Oh?"

Permalink

"He goes quiet when something's bothering him."

Permalink

Nod. "Good that you know that."

Permalink

"I've had a lot of practice."

Permalink

 

"Should I ask?"

Permalink

Shrug. "He's a Jedi. Lots of things bother him."

Permalink

"Ah. Yeah."

"Depends what things, I guess. Jedi, though, I wouldn't expect him to be right often."

Permalink

"...He's bothered by the things worth being bothered by plus some things that aren't, minus some specifically Jedi stuff."

Permalink

Nod. "About things where you'd have to wonder, I mean, yeah."

Permalink

"Mm. Well--he's thoughtless more often than he ought, but when he does think things through he's right more often than you would expect of a Jedi."

Permalink

Nod. "That's good. I'll give him more of a chance than I was planning on, I guess."

Permalink

"I haven't actually met a Jedi before, you know. Just heard rumors, but it sounds like enough of those are right - it does speak well of him, that you can say that."

Permalink

"He's less good at being a Jedi than he thinks he is."

Permalink

"Yeah."

Permalink

"--Probably a good thing he thinks he's a better Jedi than he is, though."

Permalink

"-yeah, that'd cause some conflict. I won't poke at it - I intend to leave him to you for the most part anyway," she shrugs.

Permalink

"Yeah," she sighs. "It's better he go on thinking himself a good Jedi until and unless I can pry him away from the organization altogether."

Permalink

Nod. "I don't know how I'd help with that, but if you come up with a way I likely won't mind."
