Script Magic

The pen is truly mightier than the sword when dealing with script magic. It is a style based on the power of the written word. It is like conventional magic in so much as it has spells and rituals, but it is certainly a specialized form centralizing on writing.

Long ago, many cultures discovered the power of writing not only as a means of communication, but also as a strong form of magic. This is yet another reason why literacy was not taught to the general populous until very recently in history.

Script magic is a double threat to the CS for two reasons. The first, quite obviously because it is magic, which the CS so direly wishes to curtail. Secondly, script magic requires literacy to be used and encourages reading and writing to all.

Script magic is also unique in that it is one of the few magics that blend extremely well with computers and technology. Script magic is very versatile in that sense, and with some communication equipment, script magic easily gains superiority to that of mundane techno-wizardry and common magic spells and rituals. Communication is of utmost importance to any interpersonal or intergroup relations. However, the magic does have many shortcomingas as an intrapersonal medium. Script magic is generally only effective to the outside world and has few immediate benefits for the caster. On the other hand, the rewards for intelligent use of this spell could be limited only by the caster's imagination.
