Baby don’t hurt me…
But seriously, though. What is magic?
I’m working on getting my master’s degree in imaginative literature, so over the past month I’ve read four or five books, all of which discuss that exact question (through telling a fiction story of course).
Each book has a different answer to that “what is magic” question, and that answer makes up a large part of what makes the world tick.
It’s worth thinking about. How does magic work in your D&D world? Is it the weave? Maybe it’s related to things’ true names?
Think about it. Maybe ask your players what they think.
Because it’s important, and it’ll color your world in an important way.
