    Magecraft-Maker

From there, they would continue into the study of Individual Fundamentals, Spiritual Evocation, Mineralogy, Zoology, Anthropology, Botany, Astrology, Creation, Curses, Archaeology, or Modern Magecraft Theory. The forms and tendencies of these different Faculties all varied wildly, but fundamentally they all still pursued the study of Mysteries. According to my master, magi were living things that existed to seek after the "Spiral of Origin," so this structure was a natural result."

    - The Lord El-Melloi II Case Files Volume I: The Adra Castle Separation
    Chapter 2, Part 1
    The Create-a-Mage thread worked, and as people seem to be disagreeing on which magecraft is best to give a hypothetical character, here's a thread in which you can make up your own forms of magecraft, magic and magical abilities.

    No bars and no limits on this thread; it's just the magecraft, not an actual character here, so you can make it as insane as you want, as long as it's entertaining. Just bear in mind that the more outrageous, the less likely it is to be viable in fanwork.


    We can start with the basics:
    The Twelve Faculties of Magecraft:

    • (I) General Fundamentals • (II) Individual Fundamentals • (III) Spiritual Evocation
    • (IV) Mineralogy • (V) Zoology • (VI) Anthropology
    • (VII) Botany • (VIII) Astrology • (IX) Creation
    • (X) Curses • (XI) Archaeology • (XII) Modern Magecraft Theory


    Or, we can get into more specific things:

    • Formalcraft • Basic Elemancy • Mystic Codes/Formal Wear
    • Alchemy & Transmutation • Bounded Fields • Divine Magic (any magecraft practiced by the Holy Church)
    • Runic Magic • Necromancy • Impulses (a la Inversion Impulse, 'cause who's to say that's the only kind)
    • Transference of Power • Mind Magic & Mental Manipulation • Mystic Eyes
    • Witchcraft • Divine Words • Reality Marbles
    • Geis (Geises?) • Onmyoudou • Psychic/ESPer abilities (because excluding Fujino and Azaka would be wrong)
    • Codecasts • Origins • 5th Magic - theory (in case it's meant to do more than blow things up)


    All of these and more are available. ANything you can think of, really. Even just creating new applications for any of the these, or other forms of Thaumaturgy. Have fun with it. There's no Mage's Association to kill you for experimenting with powers beyond your control, possibly while in plain sight of other people. Or for taboo research. Anything goes.

    I was thinking of adding Summoning magic, such as trying to bring a phantasmal beast into the world. Likely requires a talented mage, and a huge source of mana, depending on what you're summoning. But I haven't really thought it out yet.

    If you're creating a new mage in that other thread, but feel that their magecraft needs its own description to help define its uses, strengths and shortcomings, then this is a good place for that too, should you find that the specifics are drawing away from what you're really trying to get at in your character description.

    The more description your magical ability has, the better. Just in this neophyte's opinion, it often seems that things in the Nasuverse get unnecessarily complex, so you've got no reason not to go overboard.

    Above all, have fun. It's magic after all.
    Now, let's make some things explode.

    Probably should have made this in that other forum with that other thread because all we're going to do here is nitpick what everybody else gets wrong.

    I always thought that Create-a-Mage should have been here anyway.

    Well, let's get started.

    Mystic Eyes of Taboos:
    If Azaka were somehow to develop something like this without also awakening to her origin, then it would be the most hilarious thing ever. Whenever she looked at anything, not limited to humans after all, she'd see it's darkest secret, or its fetishes, or its deepest desire, providing it was something weird, or just something horrible that they really want to happen. She'd never be able to look anyone she saw before acquiring Mystic Eye Killers in the eye again. And of course she'd also have the realization that she could use this power to mess with Shiki, so she'd do that, and see one of three things: murder, her brother, or complete nothingness. I don't have time right now to expand on this. Dang it.

    Electromagus that uses some sort of bullshit galvanism steampunk pseudo-science magic theory stuff to recharge magical energy from common wall sockets and taser/EMP the fuck out of his enemies. Also with spiky hair because static electricity and can't use electronic devices because static electricity. Subject to some arbitrary limitations in order to keep the power level under control.

    Optionally, being Chinese and Batman as well.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Music magus that does what music can do (lullaby people to sleep, make people go berserk with rave music, make people go sexy with funk, make people catatonic with V A P O R W A V E, etc)
    don't quote me on this

    That... actually sounds like a good idea for an entire department within the Clock Tower. Mystic code research, creation and replication. Or somesuch.

    By the way: Right you are, asterism.

    Magecraft that lets one control fabric could potentially be pretty powerful, though. Strangle an opponent with their own clothing and etc.
