Teleportation magick is a common type of Sorcerer magick, however, not extremely convenient to use even if you can get from Point A to Point B fast. It's not like Star Trek's and not like wizards in Harry Potter.
Immortality or near-immortality can make characters sound quite invincible. If they heal fast or never get sick, how can anyone ever kill them? They sound much too powerful and you know what? I don't like invincible characters or beings that are all powerful and no one can EVER kill them off. That just sounds too convenient to have characters like that. It's like flawless characters.

Since I had to change the name of a fantasy species to be more readable and meaningful, I thought I'd share this with you so you can see how I sometimes come up with a fantasy species name.
Sometimes I just sound out the name or look up a word in different languages (like Phoenicopteri was just Latin for flamingo), and sometimes I want the name to carry a certain meaning or two.
Depending on what I'm looking for, my method to creating a new name will change. I will only be talking about one instance and how I resolved it.
