Speaking of lights for magical abilities, what is an appropriate physrep? We probably don't want to be carrying around flashlights but we also can't exactly shoot beams of light out of our palms.
One thought I had was recycling the concept for my lacuna physrep and using a flashlight base as a scepter of sorts with a focus for the light on the end. FOR EXAMPLE:
The light in this prop, for those unfamiliar with it, functions like a high powered blacklight. It hums when it's on but I can muffle it or change the sound byte.
Notice that I swapped the plastic lightbulb I used in Lacuna out for a crystal made of the same thing we use for salt in second dawn. You could easily build something like this around a flashlight (or blacklight flashlight) to create a similar prop.
But my question is: What does everyone else think about light physreps?
