        Lunar magic isn't Dara Happan magic. DH stuff is only part
of what the Lunars do. They use DH stuff, and Carmanian sorcery,
and Chaos powers, and Thelayan magic. In short they use everything
they can get their hands on and make work.
        Some magics may 'work better' than others at various times
and places, but that is more a matter of circumstances, IMO. The
kind of magic people use is bound to be adapted to their culture
and physical requirements....
