Magic is prevalent in the Known World. With few exceptions, literally everyone has some sort of magic at their disposal. The humans of this world have their own kinds of magic, as do the elves, faeries, merfolk, and nymphs. Everyone is born with some natural access to certain magics.

Beyond these natural talents, there are magics that anyone can learn to wield if they study. While study obviously requires free time and access to education, the magics themselves are equally attainable by anyone willing and able to put in the effort.

As a result, magic plays a heavy role in everyday life for denizens of the Known World. Many technologies and modern amenities rely on magic to function, such as indoor plumbing through water magic, or refrigeration through ice magic.

In fact, magic is so common in my Tales of the Known World saga that individuals without magic are rather rare and considered something of an oddity. Each person is born with access to six different magic abilities, and an individual with no discernible magic typically suffers from a weakness in numerous well-known magics coupled with an ignorance of lesser-known magics in which they have a hidden aptitude.

Due to the diversity and versatility of magic in the Known World, the magic system outlined here must not be considered an expression of hard and fast rules. Rather, consider this an academic taxonomy, in which magic phenomena have been studied and codified by scholars through the ages.

That's it for this post! Up Next: The three properties of all magic...
