A new Mind skill, Magic, enables the ability to cast spells.

Magic is treated as an arcane science, with intensive study and training prerequisites to becoming skilled in its usage. Advancement in Magic requires a teacher in a formal setting.

Spells have a Mind cost based on the relative strength of the spell's effect. The number of Mind points must be deducted in order to attempt to cast the spell. During the skill roll, Mind can be spent as effort; a failure means the spell fizzles. A critical greatly enhances the spell's effect, and a fumble breaks concentration, reducing Will by the spell's Mind cost.

Spells can be cast in one of three ways:

  1. A learned spell can be cast from a written form.
  2. An unlearned spell can be cast from a written form, but becomes hard.
  3. A learned spell can be cast from prepared memory.

To learn a spell, the mage must be instructed in the casting of that precise spell, and otherwise works similar to a training session: after about 8 hours of focused instruction, the spell is considered learned.

Recording a spell into a spell book or onto a scroll can be done as a Crafting action, using Finesse (Spellcrafting), with a Complexity equal to twice its Mind cost. Once created, the written spell can be used to accurately cast the learned spell. An attempt can be made to cast a written spell that hasn't been learned before, but the roll becomes hard.

Mages can remember an active number of spells equal to their Magic skill divided by ten, rounded down. E.g., Magic 22% = 2 spells, Magic 49% = 4 spells, etc. Memorizing a spell requires some dedicated time to study a written version, The spell must have been learned before—characters cannot memorize a spell purely from a scroll. A talent within a certain school enables two more slots for that school's spells.

Magic is divided into eight schools. Each school can be a chosen or trained talent as well, adding the usual 20% to a related skill roll.

Spells coming soon.


Attributes, skills, and talents can all be modified to build custom races or species. Possible customizations include:


A new Will skill, Sorcery, enables a character to tap into the inherent chaos of sorcery.

In contrast to Magic, Sorcery is treated as an art, and its effects are considerably more improvised, haphazard, and potentially dangerous, compared to casting spells.

More coming soon.
