    When a weapon that warps the attacker away from the target, it is sometimes referred to as a rift weapon, other times as a warp weapon. What is your feeling about either term?
    Is the term 'rift weapon' more appropriate in high fantasy, while 'warp weapon' is a term that should be used in science fiction?
