MAGIC         
                          
                                   
                                          
   MAGIC IS ABOUT BEING UNACCOUNTABLE,    
 ABOUT REMOVING THE SOURCE OF THE  ACTION 
 FROM YOURSELF. IT WORKS BY EXPLOITING  A 
       KIND OF GRAVITY, CALLED THE        
              ARROW OF TIME.              
                                          
 THINGS IN THIS UNIVERSE  ALWAYS SEEK THE 
 LEAST  ENERGETIC STATE. ALL POTENTIAL IS 
 GRADUALLY  LOST INTO LESSER FORMS  (SUCH 
                 AS HEAT).                
                                          
     MAGIC THEN, IS CREATING TUNNELS,     
 SPECIFIC AND INTRICATE CANALS, FOR  THIS 
 TO HAPPEN IN  A CONTROLLED MANNER. THINK 
 OF IT AS SETTING AN  ELABORATE TRAP  FOR 
                 ENTROPY.                 
                                          
 AND THEN,  WHEN THE CIRCUIT  CLOSES, THE 
 ARROW  IS  FORCED TO  DO  YOUR  BIDDING! 
                                          
   OF COURSE, YOU'RE ALSO IRREVERSABLY    
 DRAINING  TIME  FROM THE  UNIVERSE,  BUT 
                  YEAH.                   
                                          
                                          
                                  
                                          
                                          
 THE DANGER IS A RUNAWAY SPELL  -  IF THE 
 FILAMENT OF  YOUR CANAL IS  TOO WEAK, OR 
 THE POTENTIAL IS HIGH ENOUGH  TO  ESCAPE 
 ANY SELF-CLOSING  MECHANISMS - A BREACH. 
                                          
     THESE ARE USUALLY CATASTROPHIC.      
 ALTHOUGH   MANY  ARE  LOCAL,  THEY  STAY 
 ACTIVE   UNTIL  CLOSED  OFF  BY  COUNTER 
 SPELLS (HARD TO PULL  OFF) OR THERE'S NO 
       MORE ENERGY TO FALL THROUGH.       
                                          
 IN THAT  CASE THE OUTCOME DEPENDS ON THE 
   SPELL. SMALL-SCALE BREACHES MIGHT NOT  
 EVEN  BE  NOTICEABLE BY THE UNINITIATED; 
 BUT  A SPELL MIGHT ALSO  VERY WELL BRING 
 ABOUT THE HEAT  DEATH OF  THE  UNIVERSE. 
                                          
                                          
                                       
                                          
                                          
 WELL. IT IS WHAT  IT IS.  A DYING  ART.. 
            MAYBE FOR THE BEST.
