When you consider that, Vlad's advancement >through the ranks of the Jhereg becomes even more impressive :-P I am not so sure of this. I have always had the impression that Dragaerans have a strongly phlegmatic attitude and intellect that causes their skills to improve at a rate proportional to their lifespans. So despite Morrolan being about 470 years older than Vlad, I don't think he's 470 years more skillful. >Something else to think about - Have we ever seen a witchcraft/magic >hybrid? Maybe something Morrolan cooked up and I've just forgotten? >Because if not, that could be REALLY neat :-) Perhaps. There's that thing Morrolan does in "Dragon". That might apply.
