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.
