    No. My disagreements do not come with a mutual acceptance clause attached.

    As I did go through some effort to provide you a synopsis of FfH lore as relevant to the discussion I'd appreciate you skip the oversimplifications.

    No, I am not 100% certain of that. But, as mentioned, Occam's Razor. There's no need to assume absurd, complex events when a simpler explanation exists given that there is no evidence of such reconfiguration and it would be in contradiction with the themes and mood of FfH.

    If you can't provide compelling evidence that magic makes robots, drop the argument. Ultimatums are exceptionally impolite. Particularly in an open forum where discussion of setting fluff and canon are encouraged.

    The Luchuirp craft articulate golems to make this process easier already, but that aside, you don't really need either of those things. The stone/wood/metal's innate properties can simply be changed, such that moving does not shatter them. Kind of like how a fireball changes fire's innate properties into something more like a rocket.

    Unprovable, unrefutable arguments are dismissed in science and in logic, the bastions from which you make your assault. So this entire diatribe is self-defeating; it's illogical and unscientific. Occam's Razor would defeat it if you had a leg to stand on here, but you don't.

    This is not an argument of any substance. The game has limitations that the lore does not. It doesn't work that way because it would be a waste of time and effort to make it work that way and then train the AI to understand it. The Luchuirp make golems through Enchantment. This is established canon.

    This is MY argument, so obviously I agree with it; we have appropriate starting points (the One and his archangels, who became the gods; their relative omnipotence within their spheres; the nature of magic as an act of will) that you're completely disregarded.

    That I agree with, but I'm not responsible for the graphics used in RiFE :)
