I don’t know if you just happened to find yourself here or you saw my first post, either way, welcome to the first Magic System Review.

  • Mind: This magic allows for illusions, dream manipulation and mind reading and communication.
  • Healing: This is a school that heal wounds using mana but it…

I’m Blankmarks and I love magic in fiction. I’ll write about the various magic types and concepts not only for fun but to help writers create new magical worlds
