Magic in The Unexplained
Believe it or not, there are real people in the world today that are performing magical rituals and casting spells. But it's not the magic that you see on TV and movies. It's a much more subtle magic that causes change in this world by manipulating probability.
The Unexplained describes the different types of magic, the different traditions or organizations and religions that perform magic, and include some of the details of how it's done, as well as describing how to do it in the game.
Here are some of the elements of magic that are detailed in the book:
- Types of Magic (contagious, sympathetic, divination, invocation, evocation)
- Traditions (ceremonial, shamanic, religious)
- The Orders (Golden Dawn, Wicca, Church of Satan, Vodou)
The book also includes some example spells from different orders. They are just samples, and are not meant to be cast for real, but to give a good idea of the complexity and style that each order uses.
