Important Note on Magic:

Chris is still working on the magic system! It is far from finished, and Chris only wants to put together the spells and blessings after he is satisfied. There are only a few preliminary suggestions in this chapter, the earliest ideas on how to use magic.

If you have any ideas or suggestions, please send them as quickly as possible to He’ll be extremely grateful for your help (and maybe he can get out of the severe thrashing Marc has promised him if he doesn’t hurry up and get the darn thing finished. Maybe.)
