Mortals look up at the midnight sky and see the stars, eternal and changeless. They have worshipped them, feared them, hidden from them and tried to understand them. They are the one constant promise that, in a world of constant chaos, there is something innately ordered and beautiful about the universe.

Star magic is a school of magic that harnesses the hidden order of the universe. In form, it is a science based on repetitive experiments and the constant expansion of knowledge. In effect, it is magic channelling energy from mysterious forces to alter the world. In application, it is poetry requiring creativity, insight and inspiration for maximum effect.

Inside you will find:
