Silly question.

Silly question.

I'm a bit sleepy right now, but one just popped into my head... Why are things you make by basically ripping out someone/things soul, and then put into a rock that you'd need to carry around with you to use, called a "summon"? *ooo*

Because originally Drowtales was a D&D webcomic, and they used D&D spells, before being rewritten as its own setting.

There are many other relics from them: The name of the races themselves, the fact that drowolath capture light elves and enslave them but they don't know that drowussu are descended from light elves (in D&D drow were created by a divine curse or epic magic, not naturally), the name of the coins (ada, from adamantite)...etc. Even Orthobbae comes from Mezonberranzan's school.

There was a time when female mana users were called "priests" and male mana users were called "wizards", and the elements they trained with were different.

Plus, when you use a 'summon', you gotta 'summon' that soul out of the stone. ;)
