The Codex of Magic

The Big Black Book

Dear readers I, Valdimus medi Selefim, Master Scholar of the Order welcome you to my codex. I shall keep this brief, as I hate inefficiency, and spending time on my personal thoughts about magic is just that! That said I feel that there are two things I must make clear in this introduction.   First of, I often use the term "he" or "him" when talking about a practitioner of magic. That is not to be taken to mean that women cant preform magical arts! Or that men have a talent for magic that women simply lack. The opposite is at times true. Many women have master the arts far better then most men. I do this because it saves time. If I have to write "he, or she" every time I define a magic arts inner workings said texts would be far longer and frankly rather ugly!   And secondly, there are no such thing as a spell. A magic user don't wave his hand and mutter some words in what? Elvish? How would my people been able to speak if our mere words summoned magical flames or lighting? The singers love of this idea that magic somehow have something to do whit the spoken word is absurd! In reality magic users learn magic arts, that are conducted by the mind.   Tho, at times gestures are part of said art. And in a few cases the use of songs are also used. But this are not magical songs, they simply help a magic user focus their mind noting more!
