Powerful Magic

Magic is common enough to be viewed as fact by most people. It’s not very common in the general population as it’s tightly kept secret by those who’ve learned it. Minor magic items are somewhat commonplace. Powerful items are legendary with stories that boast their history and shrouded in mystery.

Spell Casters

All spell casters require Unusual Background 20pts and at least Magery level 1. There is no limit to the level of Magery that may be bought.

Natural Adepts

These are people who use magic instinctively, with no prior teaching. Using their magical abilities is second nature to them. They require an Unusual Background 30pts and must have the Limitation Modifier -10 Magical on the advantage(s).

Because of their potential to unbalance a game, all Magical powers are subject to GM approval.
