Magic

  • 2 main kinds of magic: Wizardly and Clerical
    • It is in fact the same source – something similar to a field – but the wizards and clerics channel it differently
    • Some clerics may worry that not pleasing his or her god will result in not being granted powers until atoning. This is purely psychological and self-inflicted; the gods – if they exist int he form clerics think they do – do not really care who uses what magic
  • Amongst wizards, there are 3 main schools: Academic, Industrial and Traditional
    • Academic
      • Study, research mostly for the sake of knowledge and out of curiosity
      • Often try to understand the underlying principles of magic
    • Industrial
      • More concerned with applications and uses
      • Enjoy the wealth that comes with magical power (when you promote yourself well)
      • Eg. War mages, alchemists, bodyguards, Wizards specializing in Moving Heavy Things, etc.
    • Traditional
      • The sort that we all know and love from fantasy stories and RPGs
      • Often solitary individuals, studying for their own power
      • Adventurers
    • There is often overlap between Academic and and Industrial types
      • Adventurers also frequently become academics or more “industrially” employed as they get old and settle down
