-Surviving excerpts from The Way of All the Erf: An Introduction to Croakamancy (Banned in the Magic Kingdom!)

 

Croakamancy is not the magic of being dead, no, that is the domain of dirt and doornails. Rather, Croakamancy is the magic of dying.

Predictamancers claim that only a few units have destinies. Croakamancers know that they are wrong.

***

Date-a-mancers say that love is a red string which connects two units. Shockmancers agree, and say that fear is a black one. And even a Thinkamancer can tell you that connections give you something to live for.

But when something you live for breaks, a piece of you dies with it. Sometimes all of you does, or all of you that matters.

To be Neutral is to live for nothing but defense. To disband is to live for nothing at all.

Naughtymancy is thrilling, but not quite happy. It is harmful to its users, because it is about harming oneself for power. The highs don’t last.

(Any master Mathamancer could write in five symbols a spell to burn a city in an instant. One over zero equals infinity. It’s a secret you shouldn’t share - isn’t that a rush?)
