    How can I humbly help you?

    A simple wish can change everything.

    Seek me out and I will help in ways only I can.

    Seek you out where? Just 1 wish? Sounds pretty legit, since no one has said anything otherwise that you wouldn't be a credible person...thing...something...

    Though Silp says nope, so maybe there is something fishy here...

    Hey Amon,

    How many vishes have you granted? I vould love to record your generous deeds of who and what has been granted.

    There are consequences for every wish. I would suggest that no one make any wishes.

    My apologies for such a delayed response but I have been a bit busy.

    I cannot answer the question Binks for wishes are deeply personal and it would be a disservice to the wisher to speak of them.

    I can help here Binks,

    It's been enough that multiple powers from Anret have been very explicit in their warnings to stop due to the great power Amon has been fed.

    I am personally aware of three, but due to my position I very much expect I am unaware of a number of additional wishes that parties wish to keep private.

    I do not plan to make any requests of Amon but I am curious. What are some of the costs that have come from such oral transactions?

    I am quite thankful to you Grimshaw but I keep hearing that there is a cost without hearing what the cost is. Mind you I'm fairly certain the Djin is growing stronger off of fulfilled requests which I believe is reason enough not to make any requests lightly. I am just confused about the cost part. I just wish to know more about powerful being so I know what to look out for in the future. Is that so wrong?

    Not at all! I actually encourage this kind of curiosity. The only criticism I'd make is that it will be difficult to get a straight answer now that you've identified yourself as one who won't make wishes "lightly". Amon is a clever being. I once questioned him at great length under the guise of possibly having one of my desires granted. It was an artful dance. Arguing the opposition, though, memory seems to be suffering in Wayside. Maybe it affects him as well?

    I see the criticism but either way, last time I talked to the djin he said he would only answer me if I said the magic word and so he was not the one I was asking since I doubt he would tell me anyway. What do you mean memory is suffering?

    Migs,

    All magic has a price but you do not always see the price that is paid. The cost is most likely balanced by the extremeness of the item requested. For one to live, another dies. Ask for riches, famine cause other to starve. Magic is energy, it is not created it is transformed so the more that would be required, the more that needs to come from somewhere else. So, in this case, the cost is relative. if some one starves because another requested a feast I would say the cost was very high. even with the best intentions the granting of even a simple desire can have devastating effects that were not intended.

    In otherwords, it isn't always the requester who pays the price?

    Migs,

    I can not say for certain this is true with Amon but the best advice is, let not find out.

    That's fair. I'm just concerned about some of the requests that have come to fruition and how I'm sure there will be more.
