Quoted statements about the various branches of magic.

Nobby erfwiki.png Oh dear, it seems this article isn't up to scratch and could use some improvement. You can help Erfwiki by improving it.

Quotes. Citations. Everything.
I would request that this be limited to quotes on how magic works for now, rather than things like "So... magic, right?"

  • "Foolamancy is Eyemancy. By habit and trade, a Foolamancer must look. At all times, the Foolamancer must observe the nouns around him in finest detail and broadest stroke, in a way that other minds do not. Other minds take shortcuts. Other minds construct, telling themselves stories about what they see, rather than seeing. Foolamancy is therefore only a narrative. To tell a mind it sees something, the Foolamancer must both see the world as it is, and also as it is seen.
    Staring into the void of that discrepancy is what drives one mad, really."
    Jack, LIAB Text 10
  • "Habitually, he sought out the lines and dots of the scenery, the little hooks that other minds used to build their idea of the world around them."
    Jack, LIAB Text 21
  • "Phoebe was made of brick. She was covered in soot. Black and red and gray, matching the colors of her raiment. All in a column, matching her general body size and opacity.
    She was a chimney on a rooftop, one of many dozens. It was a really good veil. Maybe her best ever. Gold star! The enemy’s minds would not have to reconcile very much with their eyes, and that was the name of the game."
