    I think you're on to something here. Just seems like a great way to make a lot of money, but I can't quite put my finger on why...

    I totally agree with the interchanging of the terms. As you know I often wonder how interchangeable he might be using the term Labyrinth with dungeon. In the beginning I thought of the Labyrinth as it’s on place or like a supreme dungeon? I’m not so sure anymore. I still like that idea better.

    I see those realms or planes as there own worlds or inter dimensional spaces.

    Aleron has at least 3 systems in place. There are dungeons which are just ruins (some are enchanted so that monsters/ defenders respawn), monster lairs and Dungeons. How to create Dungeons is currently unknown.

    Dungeons are created to serve as entrances to the labyrinth. That is also their first goal, and they need to reach level 10 to be able to open the path. Until that time the connection is one-way, meaning labyrinth creatures and possibly adventurers can travel to the Dungeon, but not the other way around.

    Once they reach the powerlevel required to open an interdimensional gate at level 10 they also gain the power to create their own dimension. At which point there are no longer a limit on physical occupancy, effectively infinite adventurers can enter. Its still linked to a physical location. It also gains the power to create a few entrances of its own.

    Should the Dungeon reach level xxxx its possible those entrances can be placed further away, and might take on some aspects of the main Dungeon, meaning monsters of its own. That's likely a LOT of levels ahead, and I honestly doubt it will happen. Could be fun though.

    Did we talk about how he didn’t use his monocle while putting the physical bag together? I’d use that puppy whenever I did anything crafting or even crafting adjacent.

    I totally agree!

    I wouldn’t only use it while crafting I would use it when looking at any potential crafting resources.

    Absolutely. He has tons of regen and remarks how it’s useful for seeing stuff already. Might even help unlock features, as well.

    With his regen, I'd wear it literally all the time. Given his lack of understanding of the Land, it can only help him.

    It might even be useful in battle to see mana building up for a spell or a mana-dense crit point to attack.

    I wonder if it would allow Richter to learn spells by watching someone cast enough times.

    I hadn’t considered using it to see mana. That might make it possible to find ley lines and the nexus of unknown Ley lines.

    If he could do that then he could establish new places of power! Then he'll go to his companions and say, "You get a Place of Power and you get a place of power and you get a place of power and you get a place of power!!! "

    He needs to so they can stay relevant. If he doesn’t the inner 10 year old is going to make Ricther a god in a godless Land with every magical item that exists in Ricthers control.

    I neglected to say with no real adversaries capable of threatening him.

    A leyline map would be of immense value. It would give him the approximate location of many major settlements and an idea of whether there are other pop's laying fallow.

    I've always wondered if there are any places where all 8 ley lines meet.

    could see
    Number of leylines crossing equals:
    2 : common
    3: uncommon
    4: rare
    5: very rare
    6: ,,,
    7: ,,,
    8; Legendary places, probably only one or two in the entirety of the Land.
    8+: unheard off.

    Edit:

    Though I have a feeling 4 power pop will be the highest.

    So have I.
    Do you think all 8 leylines in one place would make it a peaceful PoP with everything in balance an supercharged with mana OR a chaotic PoP full of destruction because all opposing leylines are overlapping?

    I would think it could be either/or based on the master of the pop, and their abilities and the choices they make.

    Also, when Richter claimed his village it made sure he had the requisite affinities. It didnt specifically say what the minimum affinity is but I assume its between 50 amd 100, so it would take a very special person to be able to claim a nexus of all 8 ley lines.

    Does anyone think that there exist special types of ley lines? Like at specific locations in the Land maybe there is a ley line of fey magic or maybe spirit magic.

    My guess is no, the source of those powers seems to only come from the user, which is what makes them more dangerous. It kind of cheapens them to me if he got rid of that.

    The one possibility I could see is a ley line or section of a ley line that was corrupted by eldritch magic.

    Maybe not a ley line, but I could see an area flooded with special mana because of an open portal or extremely strong item/creature

    I don't see how ley lines would cheapen higher magics, since only the master of the Pop would have access to these ley lines. We know that Places of Power are very rare since in the Land so far we have only seen a handful of them.
