Sure, I did a bit of telekinesis with some dragons and elves, but no fireball-tossing, invisibility-gaining, let-me-rub-my-crystal-ball magic before.
I now find myself wanting… no, needing… to write magic into my current WIP. The magic is illegal, but accessible to most. Some modicum of intelligence is needed to perform magic, though it can be packaged and sold to the lower classes.
The magic must come from something found only in one kingdom.
Since it must be limited in scope to a particular area, I can only assume the magic comes from an animal, vegetable, or mineral found there.
However, someone in the other kingdom can also do magic. I think someone is shipping him ‘the stuff.’
Whatever it is.
