i read a book called Master of the Five Magics that has a FANTASTIC magic system. magic is split up into Thaumaturgy (magical binding of two objects together, imagine like voodoo dolls), Alchemy (potion making), Magic (elemental powers), Sorcery (illusion) and Wizardry (conjuring demons). The main character is on a quest to study all of these so the story has time to go super deep into how they work and what rituals they require.
If you like fantasy and have read some books with magic, which one do you think did magic the best?
also do you like hard or soft magic systems? for reference in fantasy a soft magic system is like Harry Potter, everything just kinda works and the rules of the magic, if there are any, are left vague. you also don’t generally need any ingredients for spells. hard magic is the opposite of that, there are usually very clear rules and items or rituals are needed.
