Starting today we’re going to walk through each question in greater depth. Our first question is one of origin. However, before we dive in there is an important concept that you need to understand about this process.
Each question feeds into the other creating a cyclical system. You might think of it as an avalanche. It starts small, but as it moves forward it gathers speed and content. As you answer one question, new ideas will spawn for other questions. In creating one of my systems, I eventually discovered that world’s beginning and end, not to mention several competing theories on said end from its denizens. I did not know when I first set down that very broad stroke, natural energy, that I would come to discover those details. Please keep that in mind as we create together. Our start will be extremely simple. Give it time to grow into its own and bloom.
And that statement makes a fairly decent segueway, so let’s begin. When we establish an origin, the first defining point is whether the magic is natural or supernatural. Natural magic is something that naturally exists in the world – mana, the force, the two sided energies of the Wheel of Time series. Supernatural is something that comes from outside of the natural world, often the gifts of demons or deities. So make that first decision, this is your starting point!
Origins is rather simple in this way. All else will stem from this first decision. That said, let’s begin. Please answer with a comment here.
Would you prefer a natural or supernatural origin for this system of magic?
