In the course of my research for the game’s magic system, I’ve taken a great deal of effort in reading a great many books. The common thread of this all is the sheer imagination with which humanity exists. I’ve re-read Michael Taussig’s commodity fetishism book, Kuru Sorcery, the Golden Bough, Holy Blood, Holy Grail, Healing and Music, and so forth. Every system is different; very unique in and of itself. Yet, the most interesting facet is simply the amount of magical thinking necessary to construct these systems and how daunting it is to take that very tiny sinew of compatibility between differing world views and put them into a system.
