The necklace had been passed down for generations; though sometimes it was a ring, and sometimes a bracelet. It changed for each person with no obvious pattern. It didn't seem to possess any other magic.
On my 18th birthday, the family gathered around to see what form it would take for me.

"Wait," he said, "you read fantasy? On your profile it said you read science fiction."
"I like to read both."
"That makes no sense, you either read one or the other."

The coil stator doesn't bear any kind of static load from the vehicle so it can be mounted on the axle. The magnet hub can be attached to the wheel, but without bearing any load either. Also, these are designed to handle vibration by necessity, but a rocker bogie will experience less of it

Since the discourse of the Harry Potter game has reached my Mastodon Time line as well I can just as well give my two cents about it:
I hope the work that was put in creating the well done aspects of the game is salvagable for creating something supportable.
