Clever indeed. If air wasn’t getting in through that bubble there’d be only a limited period of time she could stand there inside it before she started to suffocate. In that case forcing her to stay inside it until her air runs out would solve his problem. However, since she’d been in the bubble a while and shows no sign of passing out it would seem that he is correct in guessing that the shield allows air to pass through. By surrounding the shield with fire he keeps fresh oxygen from getting in as well as possibly using up the air she already has in there faster. In either event, her only option to avoid suffocation is to drop the shield, while her only option for avoiding a nasty burn is to keep it in place. No-win situation for her. 🙂
just a bad rocker would i say.
Don´t know if the rockers have only one limited use of those rocks or if they can get more possibilities.
On the other hand it could be sth interdimensional, only passable by light, so that she gets air/temperature from another place.
or she defends with trained skill, maybe some spikes ot of the forcefield or a sudden move.
we´ll see 😉
Khrys and Lunaroki – Thanks for stopping by. 🙂 And yes, Lunaroki that’s pretty much how I see it working.
Faber Draconis – Very creative scenario. I never thought of the rocker making force-field spikes. The original intent of the force-stone was more of a defensive, shielding nature, but I like where you are taking the idea. 🙂
Ooo.. Feeding Tony ideas is probably a bad thing.. 😉
What I’m all curious about is how he knows about oxygen! That’s definitely tech knowledge..!
Eh, I dunno. Knowing about oxygen doesn’t sound all that tech knowledge-y to me. 😉 Even if one doesn’t know all the ins and outs of the chemical nature of oxygen, understanding the theory that there’s a component of air which allows fire to burn and is also needed to support life is a pretty straight-forward concept. That was one of the foundational concepts that helped the study of alchemy evolve into the study of chemistry, and as such predates a lot of the solid science of chemistry as we know it today. Besides, considering what we theorize to be the true nature of their world it would make sense that at least some of them would have some basic concept of scientific knowledge.
Also, Jonboy = former rocker of the Banestone, so he’d be more in the know about such things than most.
The only thing is, Lunaroki, in medieval-fantastic universes like the Endstone world, Air is Air. There is no knownledge that air is composed of other things. Air allows life, Air allows flames to burn and grow, Air is even an element.
Wich means that Jon here gets his knowledge of oxygen from the glimpse of the modern world he caught when fusing the Endstone and the Banetsone at the Eternity Spire. No one else knows what oxygen is in the Stoner world. 🙂
