-> "[[CommonKnowledge Let us begin with what everyone knows about magery.]] Mages have magic; common folk do not. What makes a truly great mage is power, [[ElementalPowers the ability to set a forest on fire or freeze a lake.]] Mages train, as apprentices with one master or students with many, [[MyKungFuIsStrongerThanYours in order to learn to increase their power.]] The power of mages comes from the elementals - [[TitleDrop salamanders]] for fire, sylphs for air, and the rest. Elementals know mages by their names. Hence, [[DeadGuyJunior giving a child the name of a past mage]] gives him easier access to that mage's elemental."

* KarmicDeath: Maridon convinces Coelus that he needs to be the [[PersonOfMassDestruction subject of the Cascade ritual]] because if something goes wrong and the subject dies, he's expendable and Coelus isn't.

A fantasy novel by economist and omnienthusiast David Friedman. The story is set in a world where everyone has some magical talent, but magic is always very weak, at the time when the Laws of Magic are just starting to be formulated. The plot centers around [[TeenGenius Ellen]], a new student at a School of Magic. [[BoyMeetsGirl she meets]] the young theorist [[WideEyedIdealist Coelus]], one of the masters at the academy. He's working on a new kind of spell - '[[MacGuffin The Cascade]]' - which could grant vast power to whoever uses it. Ellen is drawn into both the politics surrounding the cascade and the mystery of the Salamander.
