In the same way as a carpenter can take a piece of wood and craft it into a chair, or an architect can take a pile of bricks and build a house, Mages can twist and manipulate the magic in the air and earth around them. Although any Supernatural possesses the potential to use magic, only those dedicated to studying the elements can master all its complexities.
Mages are an Illuminati class.
Please, note that the classes (namely class powers) are still under heavy development. Since the website cannot retrieve information from the mud at this moment, the most up-to-date information can be found from within the game.
