@Night-X: Actually looks like he's sapping the good luck out of everyone else around him too, given the background.

And then their heads exploded. The End.
One is running with clueless luck, another is running at lightspeed, and the last one might be running to years of therapy.
Hey Guys, sorry we've been so quiet. Working on next page now.
@Marshal Banana: which technically kills your arguement that they're more effective than advertizers. at best they're roughly equal simply by using criteria, but even that causes probably about 50% false positives (if you're being generous).

You have to remember the US's intel agencies are some of the most ridiculously paranoid. I mean, they've actually had several of their OWN jailed for treason due to... finding out someone who happens to be in power is guilty of treason by how they got it in the first place.

@Zophah: Two words: Cestus Dei.
@Pendrake: The NSA bulk records and collects every electronic communication that occurs in the United States. They're building a facility that is over 200 square feet of just data storage (this is not including the walking space to get around the machines) that is identical to the previous facility they used for that purpose because they have so many records they filled it.
They are always listening. The difference between the NSA and ad companies is the NSA doesn't want to announce that they're listening or what they're listening for. The law forbidding them from using ad companies is political theater, because they're already way more effective.
What they're NOT so good at is sorting through all that data, because they collect more than can be processed.
@Marshal Banana: but not as effectively as Advertizers! Seriously, there's even laws preventing Spy Agencies from using Advertizing companies to get intel, despite how incredibly effective that would be... given Advertizers are literally listening through every device with some form of mic hookup, i.e. cellphones.

Seriously, you can even test this by talking about nothing but, say, a specific kind of snack, or a sport for a day or two around your devices, and you'll notice that suddenly you start seeing ads for said thing pop up everywhere.
Silly Cubist, don't you know anything about the NSA? The government is ALWAYS eavesdropping on your conversations.

If the government was listening in on their conversation, would they even believe that they are actual spellcasters?

What an inopportune time for the government to be eavesdropping on this random conversation...

@dracone: Depending on the game system, psionics and magic may overlap so an antimagic field could work for both.

@Salen: One-to-One, a Sleep Spell
If you just want to cut off the magic/psionics you need to create an antimagic zone for the magic and anti-psionic zone for psychics; or put an item on them that inhibits their ability to make use of mystic forces

What's the magical equivalent of a Tranq Gun?
@Marshal Banana: true, but what i mean is Reese won't. Her husband is, as opposed to Sheila and Ally, and their husbands being oblivious.
@Pendrake: Ten bucks says Nick was the first one to notice something's wrong.
