I wonder how many chapters until Quinn figures out how to reverse engineer the lightsaber. I may look like I’m resting but in my head I’m very busy snoopy shirt. Reverse-engineering doesn’t count for shit if you lack the machining to actually produce the parts. No, but magic covers plenty of missing techs. Either through matter assembly replication of parts or replicating the physical effect. Magic can be problematic if not handled correctly. It can do most anything that can be done by scientific means and many things that are just physically impossible. Then just remains the question of where the limits are in this particular setting. Notice how Quinn didn’t just copy-paste his phone for example, and I’d wager that a “lightsaber” is somewhat more complicated.

Not to mention that all his re-inventions of weaponry have been machined the regular way as well. I may look like I’m resting but in my head I’m very busy snoopy shirt. I think the limits in this story is the limited population of people that can use magic. We don’t know if that’s in the realm of possibility yet. I just suggested as a possibility for magic. I don’t know how complicated a lightsaber©️ is. Does it have to do on the fly calculations to control a field? Does it just have to supply power to a focus of some type? Depending on the speed of the plot in a vacuum, it’s as complex as autism demands. As to manufacture of weapons, there are two very good reasons Quinn made them in the way he did. First, inequality of power. People who can’t use magic are at a disadvantage.

Second, using mages to make his weapons would be poured resource allocation. I may look like I’m resting but in my head I’m very busy snoopy shirt. Just my two cents. It seems like “psionics” is rare and don’t make someone a “world-jumper”. There does seem to be a significant difference since “world-jumpers” are “Creatures with the natural ability to hop between timelines”. Wizards and mages need a specific spell that takes an hour to cast and varies a bit based on the location. World-jumpers can “step from one world to another, just by willing it,” though they needed some time to prepare and more time to recharge. Seems a lot easier than what magic users have to deal with, albeit more limited.

Aside from everything else, I was really impressed by Arno giving the larger, stronger, lightsaber-wielding human a beat down. I may look like I’m resting but in my head I’m very busy snoopy shirt. I’m pretty sure their proportional strength is to the degree that an elf outmuscles a human of equal size and fitness level. Keep in mind that Arno is a “brick-shithouse” of an elf. Canon so far is that Thera/Chypia are about as strong as Quinn for a couple of minutes, then they get all tired. Afaik, Vicky is somewhat stronger than Quinn (she’s massive for a female elf). None of those three have any kind of physical training. The ability to make and maintain weapons of equal power levels the field. So we have artillery and lightsabers. Why not lightsaber canister shot fired from a cannon?
