Confusing Concepts: Spells

As one knows, spells are formulas, rituals, or acts used to make magic form in the physical plane. Now just from this, one can see that there are many forms that a spell can take. Usually it is associated with a spoken word to be used in a certain purpose. For example, the shaman spell known as Fomzamaw requires the user to speak the word and have a supply of stone nearby. Once the word is uttered, it forms a stone arm that the user can replace for a lost limb. This was developed during the Wizard’s War after the mages pulled out from the senseless bloodshed. On the other hand their are other spells that do not require spoken words. Strong feelings can react to the magical network and produce quite the punch. Such an instance can be found in shamans. When needing to pack a punch, they can summon a specific element, such as roots, to batter their opponents. Helpful if the user cannot for some reason use their voice. Another way a spell works is by hand signs. A common household trick meant to trap intruders but used by mischievous siblings is the Lock Switcher spell. As the name suggests, it changes the locks or handles of a door so the other is locked in the room. To activate this spell, one makes one fist above the other then switches their position. Of course these are just some examples of how to bend the complex energy known as magic. Many more still remain widely unknown in the vast world of Magitotum, thus keeping some mystery to a power that is shared by many people. The unexpected comes with the mystic and one should never expect something that is mysterious.
