Talk:List of Magic Words

Wait... Van de graaf and ...'Lemon party' are definitely magic words... why'd the speculation get taken away? Th reason why I put them in speculation was that they are associated with something other than a casters natural ability. (arkenhammer, magic scroll).

Merge with Known Spells?

Should this page be merged with Known spells page? Keeping and updating two almost identical lists seems excessive. -- Spruce (talk) 16:18, 10 September 2015 (EDT)

That depends on what we really want from the pages. The Known Spells page seems focused on describing the in-world aspects, while Magic Words goes into the audience-relevant meanings of the words themselves, with their effects only being briefly mentioned.
I would say keep them separate, but make them even more focused. Known Spells can be a starting point, letting one easily search for spells by effect, place in timeline, keyword, etc (what was the word Sizemore used to heal that golem? oh, right) with Magic Words explaining the jokes and references without bothering much with context.

That sounds logical, maybe the magic words could be changed to low level headings so that direct linking to a word would be easy? -- Spruce (talk) 18:54, 10 September 2015 (EDT)
Probably not a bad idea... at the very least, the links should be overhauled. At it is, it looks like everything just redirects back to Magic Words, which doesn't make a lot of sense for the links on the page. -No one in particular (talk) 21:40, 10 September 2015 (EDT)
