Magic is a supernatural force created through complex runes drawn with conjuring ink. People trained in the use of magic are called witches.
Seals are composed of three elements: sigils, signs, and rings. The size and cleanliness also affect the quality of the seal: larger seals are stronger than smaller ones and neatly drawn seals last longer than poorly drawn ones.
A sigil occupies the center of a seal and determines the type of spell cast. The four primary sigils are fire, water, might (or earth), and levitation (or wind).
Signs are arranged around the sigil and determine what form the spell will take, as well as its size and direction.
The ring encompasses the sigil and signs. Completing the ring activates the spell.
