MAGICAL SYSTEMS

ENCHANTMENT

Sometimes called ‘deep magic’, enchantment comes in several
traditions: [1] The tradition of magical incantation in which a
particularly powerful object or person undergoes a significant
change over the course of days, hours, or minutes. The same
effect can be had by a god with greater agility. [2] The tradition of
‘empty blessing’ in which, for reasons that are magically
concerned, a particular location experiences desirable weather
for a time. This is close to priestly magic, and may be associated
with a feeling of gladness. [3] The tradition of archaic or archana
magic often written on papers or rocks. One example is the
blessing to restore nets mentioned later. These spells may be
larger explanations for reality than the reality which still exists,
hence their power. [4] The tradition of living magic. Sometimes
this is extended to include moving rocks, in addition to creating
masses of stones or plants. [5] Bardic psychological magic may
be tied to one of the other examples, or exist for its own effects.
This may be rooted in Pan’s rituals, the tradition of the Muses, or
ancient queens and priestesses. [6] The magic of life and death,
such as Brahma and the Egyptian Pharaohs, although rare, does
sometimes exist. It may be called essentialist magic, and
frequently has effects that are immediately visible with no source
other than the power. These include powers to raise the dead---
humans, animals, and plants---panacea, some variants of the
elixir of life, and the ability to animate golems. Any effect which
might depend on subtle ripples of space.

An enchantment used in mending nets:

“Socrates was formed of us,
And formed of us alacrity”

The spell can be targeted using Eissel Tannon.

An enchantment for creating light:

‘Pilfere Residuelis’ (May require showing a narrow hole with the
fingers to direct the light).

A spell for improving eyes and improving light in the room:

‘Butter Charm… Butter CHARM’

Followed by: ‘Mend Spice’ which helps one to grasp hold of the
shafts of light that are already in the room. This works with
artificial light.

Enchanting Objects - ]...Great advantages and great failures can
be born from enchanting of objects. Most effects pass away
almost immediately, but you may find that if an effect endures, it
is like a family member. It is the thoughts like objectifying family
members and not agreeing too much which seem frightening. But
more often than not the wizard or witch lives alone, and could use
some interesting company. The wizard or witch is of course
something of a master or a fool with their possessions. Each of
these characteristics should be used to the best effect.
