In my story or work in progress "The Order" I have designed I think a very detailed magical model. I wonder what others feedback is to it. I have already 4 alternate stories taking place in this universe. So I like thnking the model is nice to support different styles. I hope you enjoy the ideas of one wierd writer. Feedback and comments or questions are welomed and loved. The Order Magical Model Magical Model for the Universe that is the setting for my story The Order Magic is a type of energy that has been around since before the big bang. The energy is constantly flowing but its area of effect is so large and even that not many forms of technology are unable to detect it. Through evolution certain creatures developed a soul organ that in a sense that allows them to personally manipulate this energy. A magical born person will have a higher amount of energy than his environment. As such he will be visible on magical detecting technology or another magical born persons inner magical sense. As the organ is part of ones energy it is not tangible and cannot be harmed or removed to disable ones ability to use magic. Most organs are very fixed at birth and as such possible abilities are fixed from birth but most doesn't mean all, so some changing is possible usually through one of two rare events that I probably won't mention here. There are three basic schools of what magical energy can do. 1. Psychic. Psychics are not a unique form of mind energy, they are a unique form of magical energy. The conscious mind is not purely a reaction of the brain. The soul or magical energy of life holds this aspect of people. Souls use the brain to communicate. Psychics work under the core concept of speaking to the magic or soul of another, not the brain. Since talking isn't as difficult to ignore, psychics that are not subtle can be much easier to block. Psychics telekinesis is explained in the same basic manner. They talk with the energy of or surrounding an item. A magical born person whether psychic or not is resistant to psychic mind attacks or a telekinesis attack to the insides because as the energy was sparked within themselves the control they have over it outranks a psychic. As such a completely non magically born person is much less resistant to a psychic. 2. Magic, or Normal Magic The core concept is being able to manipulate magical energy. Differing styles or intensity may very greatly from person to person. Moving matter, increasing stats or launching fireballs all fit into this category. This is the most common category and as such has the highest flex of what can be done in it. There is a core difference between moving matter magically and psychically. Since psychics speak to the energy their control over different materials tend be equal. Magical movement almost never gives an equal cost to different materials. Which suffers a higher cost varies from person to person. 3. The Warriors Sense The Warrior Sense is very similar and different to psychics. While Psychics can talk and listen to a soul, the Warrior Sense allows one to see and touch the soul. It may seem like the other two touch magic but there is a notable difference. Psychics and normal Magic both touch magic with magic. The soul is made of magic and a magical born person can mentally manipulate there soul. It is also notable to explain a difference about seeing energy. A normal magic user can concentrate and produce a visible ball of energy. This would give the easy assumption that magic can be visible to anyone but it skips a step. Normal magic isn't visible, the effect it is having on the world is, such as heat, to give an example. The Warriors sense allows the true touch and sight of the real magical energy. Classes, these three schools can be broken down into seven classes. Normal magic and its classes are the most common, Psychics are the second most common, making the Warrior Sense the rare one. It is possible to have all three schools to some effect but that would be highly unlikely. It is not possible to have all seven classes. Normal Magic 1. Manipulator A Manipulator has the ability to mess or change the world around them. Generally moving material or changing material, such as creating fire or throwing fire would be manipulator style abilities. Manipulators come in all kinds of ways and the rules restriction of what they can do will vary from person to person. Rarely do manipulators find someone with the same limits as themselves. It is rare for normal magic user to not have some talent in manipulating. Strong manipulators are called Naturist or Enchanters. Naturist generally have one aspect of manipulating that is far superior than anything else they can do. Enchanters have the ability to create a magical effect that can continue outside of there presence or focus. (For those who saw my other Magical Model Question Thread Melissa is a Normal Magical Manipulator with a Naturist talent of plants that showcases itself in her Enchanting style bonds.) 2. Stat Magic Stat Magic is the ability to use magical energy to quickly and temporarily enhance physical abilities such as strength, speed and durability. Range of effectiveness can very but no Normal Magic user is without this form of magic. General these effects are gained even if the magical born person is unaware of their magic. 3. Bio Change Magic. Bio Change magic is when magical boast support a genetic change, the change could then exist in-spite of a future off spring not having the original magic boast. Example being a race I call the Onkyuo, they have incredible speed. They likely gained this by something like an Enchanting Style Stat Magic. As their bodies eventually became built to handle the speed regardless of if the individual had the original required magic for the talent. Making there speed now completely non magical in use. It still needed magic for them to achieve this change though. The change doesn't have to be non magical, the point is for there genetics to reflect a change indifferent to their souls magic chart. Quite Rare to happen suddenly but usually is passed down by genetics. Something I refer to as leaping is under this style of magic. Though leaping the most common version of this magic. Psychic 1. Normal Psychic Described above, nothing that the school description didn't cover. 2. Illusionist. An Illusionist is one that intermix psychic style with normal magic. As such the user must have both some form of psychic and some form of normal magic. Though simply having both is not enough to make you an illusionist, you also have to be able intermix them together. Intermixing psychic and normal magic doesn't require either to be very strong. It is quite possible for a psychic's talent to be so low that the person is unaware they have it. It would still allow a person access into the illusionist style. Illusions work by attempting to subvert control of the target by mixing or tainting the targets souls with there own magic. Warriors Sense (This one is a bit harder for me to focus on so sorry if it seems clumsy) 1. Sight The Warriors sight allows one to see the soul or magic around them. The sight can allow one to identify people, track people, see their true motives(a true desire of someone such as murder intent cannot be hidden from this sight.) at its highest perk it can allow one to see into the future. To flexing degrees. A picture here isn't clear or perfect. Standard version is more perception of the immediate area and time. The strongest version of it can predict dramatic events of the cosmos, such as a star's death, or the death of something of equal importance. Again it wouldn't be a clear picture rather a person would be able to see this event through the tint of there magical sight, one would need to recognize that the flow of energy that they see is from the death of the star as example. 2. Touch The Warrior's Touch first gives anyone with this style of magic the Chi Energy Ball, a fierce ad deadly attack that works by condensing energy at a higher concentration than normal focus would allow. Though reflection the higher focus of energy would likely be possible to use in alternate ways, such as shields, ext. The true strength to this form of energy manipulation is that it doesn't burn ones own energy. It uses the energy around you, but as such its power isn't consistent and can be exhausted if you remain in the same area for to long. At its highest ability it can allow one to open the wall between the real realm and the spiritual realm. While a physical entity can not enter that realm attempting to allows one to reach the space between them, and by traveling in there one can achieve something akin to teleporting.
