i had a lot more on this page at one point, but it was invalid so i deleted it
however, i left 'elemental warning' up simply for this:
Using the wrong element can do terrible, terrible things to you. If you take ANYTHING on this site seriously at all, let it be that you should NOT use negative energies as long as there is ANY alternative.
Void, chaos, rage, energies that come from emotions like hatred and anger and sadness... All bad ideas. Stick to earth, wind, fire, water, combinations of those, and other...Safe elements.
(Yes. Fire is 'safe'. Personally, I'd rather see someone get severe burns on their entire hand than see some of the more drastic effects of dangerous elements.)
