Pyramid Magazine: Magical Telegraphy

Check out my latest article, "Magical Telegraphy" in the latest issue of Pyramid:

Magical telegraphy can mobilize communities in a way no lord possibly could. When criminals (or adventurers) commit a crime, the next town over will know about it before the criminal even arrives. Any major event can be instantly communicated across villages, kingdoms, continents, and even worlds.

  • Actually, this already exists with the sending spell, which is why I wrote the article. The article is short enough that posting any more than the above practically gives the whole thing away anyway though:

    SENDING
    =======
    You contact a particular creature with which you are familiar and send a short message of twenty-five words or less to the subject. If the creature in question is not on the same plane of existence as you are, there is a 5% chance that the sending does not arrive. (Local conditions on other planes may worsen this chance considerably.)

    Who needs the Internet when you can use Sending?
