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.
