Notes about foreign magic systems.
The overall stat is called Power. Power substats are Life (Yang), Death (Yin), Blood (Chi).
- Life Magic is the one most often used directly.
- Necromancy is Life and Death.
- Beast Mastery is Life and Blood.
- Battle is Death and Blood.
Northern mages historically have more lopsided Power substats than Empire mages, as they will not buy up the substat that they don't use.
The overall stat is called Dharma. Dharma substats are Light (Yang), Dark (Yin), and Shadow (Chi).
- Shadow is Light and Dark in a sense (Light and Dark must co-exist to allow Shadow to exist)
- It appears that each of the stats is used to power magics separately, like Empire magic, not Northern Magic.
One of the magics is Deception, obtained from looking at Coyote.
There is at least one other tradition, which includes substats of Mystic and Mutant.
