Mages

Mage is one of a number of terms for magic users in Foon. Magic use is widespread, and many species (for example, fairies) use magic constantly in their daily business. However, other peoples (for example, humans) must learn magic through study and practice.

Other titles for magic users include: magicians, mages, sorcerers, enchanters, or even wizards (though it may not be wise to do so in the presence of a “true” wizard). Generally witches are considered a separate category because some of their powers are innate, though harnessing those powers does require learning spells.

There are common people who can perform small spells (such as the light spell Galiev likten kamer) without considering themselves mages or magicians, but there are also mortal magicians whose skills rival those of the wizards of Ephysiyies. Magic can be learned from books, other magicians, trial and error, or in a magical school. The largest magical schools are Thunderweist on the Isle of Migas and the Jizzlenob Preparatory School for Young Wizards.
