SDGI 8: Magic Systems Revisited

I've always been interested in magic systems. We all know the quote by Arthur C. Clarke: "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguisable from magic" - and I'm sure that magic wouldn't be the least magical if it existed - but that's beside the point. What I'm interested in is the implementation details and the design of magic systems in games as well as movies and litterature.

I just found a new post over at Gamedev which covers a magic system one of the newer members is developing. So if you're interested in magic systems then check it out!
