There’s quite a bit of world-building in this one. Amusingly enough when I started to get into the details behind the magic I realized: I don’t actually have details. Took me a while to come up with a magic system that’s not just “MMO use mana make spell happen” because I want to have something that makes sense within the confines of the game world itself, much in the same way that ‘players’ have an in-game explanation.
Anyway, the ‘magic system’ goes more in depth than this, but I figure that’s enough exposition for the meanwhile. Feel free to point out any errors or mistakes and I’ll fix it up.
