I think an argument could be made that a piece of truestone could be broken off, and
MAYBE it would be clear. From what I understand, people REALLY want to run to the Block
and start chipping away...

Well, wasn't it dropped on the Devil? Maybe he got all HIS spells sucked out of him?
Of course, I'm sure the local Storm Bulls don't want people running up and casting 23
points of "Destroy Reality" ;-)

Drat. Well, if he gets bored and wants to email it to me I'll name a major NPC after
him. Like I said before, I know WHAT I would program, but it's been too long and I
can't do it anymore. (Eh, back in my day....blah blah blah.) :-)
