Well okay.  If he wants a specific piece, he has to concentrate so he can't
pull a specific piece fast.  Any random piece he can do fast.

(So it wasn't rigged.  Barring some powerful cosmic type like the Dvandom
Stranger rigging it.)

He can't create paper.  He can just pull existing pieces of paper (or
