On the "Dual Use" speculation for the Messenger Hats: I interpreted Jillian's question as asking whether the hat had any combat value or secondary functions. Second, "Abjuration" in RPGs refers to protective magic, not communications. - Prvt. Pepper, Monday, May 11, 2009, 3:25 AM EST -- I always assumed that "not dual use" meant that it could send but not receive messages. DevilDan Abjuration is referring to the sending away of things - this is how it is used traditionally. sending away-repulsion and warding- protection was how the rpg thing came about. look up "Abjure"'s usage in middle english.
Someone should put in something about the magic items being resizeable, unlike non magical items. (see the picnic blanket in summer updates)
