-- This outlines the framework of Magi (from the perspective of game
mechanics), along with a discussion of why this approach was chosen.

of the game is designed in that way. This will help give a general idea of
what it would be like to play Magi.
This section provides an introduction to each of the game's nine "dimensions"
and tried to give an idea of how it would work in the game. Additional, more
specific information pertaining to each of these aspects of the game are
accessible from the pages.
This section provides information about the various races that populate
Aerynth. They are grouped according to the primary "dimension" each
of the races occupies (although most races have access to several). This
section will only offer detail on intelligent races. Keep in mind that not all
intelligent races would necessarily be playable.
