    <A HREF="http://rpgvault.ign.com" target="_blank">RPG Vault</A> continue their Peek of the Week feature on CD Projekt's Aurora engine based RPG, The Witcher, with <a href=http://rpgvault.ign.com/articles/588/588720p1.html>Peek #11</a>. Here, the magic system in the game is discussed.<blockquote>You don't become a mage because of your good looks. It all starts with a Giambattista and Bekker test - yes, the same optimist Bekker who maintained that magic does not have to be destructive - which will determine whether you'll be of any use in this profession. From then on, it's years of learning - hard learning, comparable to being sentenced to row on the galleys or work in the quarry... Of course, afterwards, you become someone of import, you put a notable title before you name, you become a beacon to women and trouble alike, and possibly even know how to use your sword, but... For every one who manages to achieve this there are 10, if not 100, that don't. And nobody knows how they end up - most probably, they're never heard from again.</blockquote>This has always been the big problem with magic for me. Yeah, it's cool, but in most settings, you're about 40 before you can conjure up a fart.

    I remember Pratchett did an excellent joke on that subject too Spazmo, so you are not alone in your thoughts.

    No way. Autumn 2005 was the last thing I heard.

    Autumn 2005 was the last thing I read on the forums. Nothing official, though. But they're still hiring people to work on the game.

    Bah, the ever slippery release dates. You can't trust them until they go gold.

    better they take their time than being rushed to finish an incomplete game. *whistles innocently*

    They still haven't found or at least announced the publisher.
