    It's just a spur of the moment thing, but how likely am I to successfully explode stuff?
    Just explode. Like boom, out of thin air.

    Meh, I wouldn't use it now of all times, so it doesn't matter.

    I circle the place, still trying to stay hidden. If I'm going in, I'll need something like there's a big open window.
    A building in the backyard works too. Maybe I'll be able to make a distraction with whatever shit I find there.

    infuse it with heal and make a tree which heals anything nearby.

    You make the tree, and cut yourself to test, it doesn't immediately heal you. You tear off a leaf and press it against the cut, and it quickly closes up.

    You notice a balcony door is open, except it's on the second story. There's trees flanking each side of it so you might be able to climb up on those and parkour over the architecture to get inside.

    Blowing up shit will alert most of the guards
    What's a sig btw

    I tear of a few leaves and save them for later. I also conjure a notebook where I write down the combination for this "spell". I will from now on call the book my "spellbook".

    Damn this is the time a more abstract manipulation of Boundaries would come in handy. Change my skills between "Sucks at parkour" and "Literally David Belle".

    Oh well, I can always (try to) bail out if things go south. Let's climb them trees and wait a bit before making the leap of faith. I want to make sure there are no guards patrolling the upper level.

    Alright, you climb up into the tree, and clamber in when a guard passes by for the fifth time.
    You enter the room, and notice it's a lounge, couches, a tv. There's a bar in the corner with tons of alcohol.
    As the guard passes by, you hide behind a couch as he goes through the room, as his route dictates.

    Peeking outside of the window there's a large void in the middle of the house, which leads down to the lower level. Around the outside you see rooms. They all look pretty much the same. Must only be guards and waiters.
    Perhaps this is the fancier side of the building, as it had a few more balconies. Because it's poorly designed and garbage, with exploitable guards.

    Timing my actions with the guard's patrol, I take looks around the room. If my quiver is bottomless, so too must be my coin pouch. Now it's only a matter of finding things that I can grab quickly, that can fit and that nobody who isn't paying much attention would miss.

    Better not get too greedy with the last one. I don't know how smart these guards are.

    I try to put a small, expensive-looking whatever in my pouch. I need to know if my theory holds water.

    Hm, what is that whatever? Oh, I dunno, maybe a candle holder? There might be one, or something like it, here, right?

    You pick up the tip jar by the drinks bar and shove it into your money pouch, it's a bit heavier but it's still less heavy than you'd expect. When you open up the pouch you notice some of the coins are larger and higher value.

    Maybe it's born with it, maybe it's fucking magic.

    You take some extra little trinkets, but that doesn't stack the currency. As it's not currency. You empty the room out of semi-valuable trinkets and peek out. You see a library and a master bedroom.

    Btw, i abandoned the game since i am not on all the day and i am unaware of updates.
    In modern physics, antimatter is defined as a material composed of the antiparticle (or "partners") to the corresponding particles of ordinary matter.

    In theory, a particle and its anti-particle have the same mass as one another, but opposite electric charge, and other differences in quantum numbers. For example, a proton has positive charge while an antiproton has negative charge. A collision between any particle and its anti-particle partner is known to lead to their mutual annihilation, giving rise to various proportions of intense photons (gamma rays), neutrinos, and sometimes less-massive particle–antiparticle pairs.

    Annihilation usually results in a release of energy that becomes available for heat or work. The amount of the released energy is usually proportional to the total mass of the collided matter and antimatter, in accord with the mass–energy equivalence equation, E = mc2.

    Antimatter particles bind with one another to form antimatter, just as ordinary particles bind to form normal matter. For example, a positron (the antiparticle of the electron) and an antiproton (the antiparticle of the proton) can form an antihydrogen atom. Physical principles indicate that complex antimatter atomic nuclei are possible, as well as anti-atoms corresponding to the known chemical elements.

    There is considerable speculation as to why the observable universe is composed almost entirely of ordinary matter, as opposed to an equal mixture of matter and antimatter. This asymmetry of matter and antimatter in the visible universe is one of the great unsolved problems in physics. The process by which this inequality between matter and antimatter particles developed is called baryogenesis.

    Antimatter in the form of anti-atoms is one of the most difficult materials to produce. Individual antimatter particles, however, are commonly produced by particle accelerators and in some types of radioactive decay. The nuclei of antihelium have been artificially produced with difficulty. These are the most complex anti-nuclei so far observed.

    Formally, antimatter particles can be defined by their negative baryon number or lepton number, while "normal" (non-antimatter) matter particles have a positive baryon or lepton number. These two classes of particles are the antiparticle partners of one another.

    The idea of negative matter appears in past theories of matter that have now been abandoned. Using the once popular vortex theory of gravity, the possibility of matter with negative gravity was discussed by William Hicks in the 1880s. Between the 1880s and the 1890s, Karl Pearson proposed the existence of "squirts" and sinks of the flow of aether. The squirts represented normal matter and the sinks represented negative matter. Pearson's theory required a fourth dimension for the aether to flow from and into.

    The term antimatter was first used by Arthur Schuster in two rather whimsical letters to Nature in 1898, in which he coined the term. He hypothesized antiatoms, as well as whole antimatter solar systems, and discussed the possibility of matter and antimatter annihilating each other. Schuster's ideas were not a serious theoretical proposal, merely speculation, and like the previous ideas, differed from the modern concept of antimatter in that it possessed negative gravity.

    The modern theory of antimatter began in 1928, with a paper by Paul Dirac. Dirac realised that his relativistic version of the Schrödinger wave equation for electrons predicted the possibility of antielectrons. These were discovered by Carl D. Anderson in 1932 and named positrons (a portmanteau of "positive electron"). Although Dirac did not himself use the term antimatter, its use follows on naturally enough from antielectrons, antiprotons, etc. A complete periodic table of antimatter was envisaged by Charles Janet in 1929.

    The Feynman–Stueckelberg interpretation states that antimatter and antiparticles are regular particles traveling backward in time.

    There are compelling theoretical reasons to believe that, aside from the fact that antiparticles have different signs on all charges (such as electric charge and spin), matter and antimatter have exactly the same properties. This means a particle and its corresponding antiparticle must have identical masses and decay lifetimes (if unstable). It also implies that, for example, a star made up of antimatter (an "antistar") will shine just like an ordinary star. This idea was tested experimentally in 2016 by the ALPHA experiment, which measured the transition between the two lowest energy states of antihydrogen. The results, which are identical to that of hydrogen, confirmed the validity of quantum mechanics for antimatter.

    Positrons were reported in November 2008 to have been generated by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in larger numbers than by any previous synthetic process. A laser drove electrons through a gold target's nuclei, which caused the incoming electrons to emit energy quanta that decayed into both matter and antimatter. Positrons were detected at a higher rate and in greater density than ever previously detected in a laboratory. Previous experiments made smaller quantities of positrons using lasers and paper-thin targets; however, new simulations showed that short, ultra-intense lasers and millimeter-thick gold are a far more effective source.

    Antimatter cannot be stored in a container made of ordinary matter because antimatter reacts with any matter it touches, annihilating itself and an equal amount of the container. Antimatter in the form of charged particles can be contained by a combination of electric and magnetic fields, in a device called a Penning trap. This device cannot, however, contain antimatter that consists of uncharged particles, for which atomic traps are used. In particular, such a trap may use the dipole moment (electric or magnetic) of the trapped particles. At high vacuum, the matter or antimatter particles can be trapped and cooled with slightly off-resonant laser radiation using a magneto-optical trap or magnetic trap. Small particles can also be suspended with optical tweezers, using a highly focused laser beam.

    In 2011, CERN scientists were able to preserve antihydrogen for approximately 17 minutes.

    Scientists claim that antimatter is the costliest material to make. In 2006, Gerald Smith estimated $250 million could produce 10 milligrams of positrons (equivalent to $25 billion per gram); in 1999, NASA gave a figure of $62.5 trillion per gram of antihydrogen. This is because production is difficult (only very few antiprotons are produced in reactions in particle accelerators), and because there is higher demand for other uses of particle accelerators. According to CERN, it has cost a few hundred million Swiss francs to produce about 1 billionth of a gram (the amount used so far for particle/antiparticle collisions). In comparison, to produce the first atomic weapon, the cost of the Manhattan Project was estimated at $23 billion with inflation during 2007.

    Several studies funded by the NASA Institute for Advanced Concepts are exploring whether it might be possible to use magnetic scoops to collect the antimatter that occurs naturally in the Van Allen belt of the Earth, and ultimately, the belts of gas giants, like Jupiter, hopefully at a lower cost per gram.

    Matter–antimatter reactions have practical applications in medical imaging, such as positron emission tomography (PET). In positive beta decay, a nuclide loses surplus positive charge by emitting a positron (in the same event, a proton becomes a neutron, and a neutrino is also emitted). Nuclides with surplus positive charge are easily made in a cyclotron and are widely generated for medical use. Antiprotons have also been shown within laboratory experiments to have the potential to treat certain cancers, in a similar method currently used for ion (proton) therapy.

    Antimatter has been considered as a trigger mechanism for nuclear weapons. A major obstacle is the difficulty of producing antimatter in large enough quantities, and there is no evidence that it will ever be feasible. However, the U.S. Air Force funded studies of the physics of antimatter in the Cold War, and began considering its possible use in weapons, not just as a trigger, but as the explosive itself.

    ((Wow it's been a while eh? Let's see if my picking this up out of nowhere will make any sense.))

    Books! I love books! They teach out a lot of stuff, like how to fly, where to enslave dragons and when to believe in what a books tells you!

    Uh... Still trying not to get caught, I make my way to the library, and immediately go for a hiding spot if I suspect there are people in here.

    Though it is a library, so I should probably try and be quiet.
    I'll silently walk down the closest aisle and pay attention to any sound around.

    You sneak around, the guard being an oblivious silly lad. Inside the library there's a few tables, a guard is having his lunch with a book inside. There's a small section for more magical tomes and scrolls, but it's locked.

    You figure you can either climb the book shelves or hide under them. They're pretty sturdy and could take your weight easily.
    There's an eye scanner on the door however it is just glass reinforced with some metal bits, maybe you could break through.

    Break through? No, as much as I'd love to Rambo my way in, stealth is key.
    I'm wearing leather armor for that exact purpose: It's literally made of hide.

    I hope I didn't destroy the karma that's been protecting me with that pun.

    Let's hide and wait a bit. Maybe someone who with access to the place will show up. I want in on the magic section, but unless I can easily bore holes in walls, I'm not gonna try something stupid.

    For now, at least.

    Well, the guard finishes his 10pm lunch, because I forgot I said it was night time, and sneaks around to where you are hidden. He looks around at eye level and opens the door, closing it behind him. He walks out a few minutes later, and locks it behind him. It looks like there's some scrolls poking out from his bag. He takes out one, and turns invisible, using it in the process. You hear him walk away. There's magic dust on the floor where he was.

    The library door closes, and appears to be locked. If you want out you'll have to jump out the window or break down a wall.

    Oh, great. It's just me and huge-ass library. Me, a walking torch, and literally tons of books.
    A pyromaniac and a sufficiently large supply of combustible materials.

    Yeah, you know what I'm gonna do. It's time for stupid.

    Well, no. Not yet.
    First I wanna see what that magic dust is. Maybe if I snort it I can learn to go invisible too?

    Well, regardless of what that pollen did, I take several books and make big two piles. One I put in front of the library entrance, the other in front of the door to the magic section.
    And when I say big, I mean BIG. I want at least three trees worth in books in each pile. And the trees must be big too.

    I take one book from the magic section pile and snap my fingers, setting a few pages on fire. Then I throw it back to the pile and repeat the process a few more times.
    Once I get a good fire going, I shoot some flaming bolts at the entrance pile, and go look for something to whack the magic section door. Suppose a chair, or anything like it, will do.

    It's time to wrap this shit up and move to discord.

    You inspect the dust, and it reforms into a scroll. Curious, you open it. It reads: "Give me a good show".
    You look around, and you smell the distinct smell of burned buildings and people. Next to you is a box labelled rather boldly as a bomb, except it's in all caps. The villagers seem to ignore you, despite walking right by you.

    Confused, you turn back to the scroll, which says "Standard Invisibility One-Use Scroll of Nuclear Bombardment"
    A cord leads off into the forest. Presumably a detonation cord. You feel for the bag of treasures but it's just a plunger for detonating the bomb.

    Did you really think you could just waltz into one of the most powerful beings in the realm's modest abode and not be caught into his mass delusion? There's some lore for you.
