Magical Theory and Thought

Liber Mysterium
The Netbook of Witches and Warlocks By Timothy S. Brannan and The Netbook of Witches and Warlocks Team

Witches view magic a bit differently than other spellcasters. Most see a division between Arcane (wizard) and Divine (priestly) magic. While these divisions are academic to most everyone else, to the spellcasters they define how they see reality. To the witch Arcane and Divine are only facets of the totality of magic.

As described above, magic is the lifeblood of all witches regardless of alignment, coven or tradition. Witches create magic for the same reasons that bards create songs; as a natural outlet for their own creativity. To a witch discussing magic as thing separate from the world or as ‘supernatural’ is as absurd as discussing water or air as something separate from the world.

Every witch has a particular feel or form to her magic. While magic can be altered by her coven or tradition, each witch’s personal casting is unique. Thus it becomes possible to determine which witch has worked what magic by her tell-tale signs. In order to determine the witch that cast a particular spell the character would need at least the Spellcraft or Knowledge (Witchcraft) skill and familiarity with that witch’s magic in the past.
