Magic is the statistic that indicates the player character's potential to cast spells. The initial value of this attribute depends on race but can be adjusted to some extent when the character is created.

During the game, a character's magic will typically increase by various boosts, potions and item enchantments. Some effects are permanent, while others are temporary.

Description

Magic represents a character’s natural potential to cast spells. A high Magic statistic gives a character more spellpoints.


Effect

Magic affects the number of spellpoints that a player character has to cast their spells. The statistic's effect on spellpoints is determined by a table of thresholds and ranges from -6 to +25.

A high enough value of magic allows a character to win challenges and gain some bonus skillpoints.


Sources of magic

Character creation assigns a base value of magic dependent on race: Genie 21, Elf 15, Human, Ogre, Troll 11, Vampire 7. The player can then distribute a total of 10 extra statistic points over the six statistics. The initial value of magic therefore varies from 7 to 31.
