Podcast Episode 1.11 – Magic Systems: Alchemy, Witchcraft, and Necromancy

1.11 Worldbuilding Fun in the D&D Movie

Episode Notes

We’re nearing the end of our series on magic systems. To celebrate, each host is bringing a different magic system to the table for the final two episodes. Today, we’re going to be talking about Alchemy—which involves transforming matter—Witchcraft—which involves pagan spellcasting, black magic, and nature—and Necromancy—which involves raising or communicating with the dead.
  • Kyle’s example: Fullmetal Alchemist / Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (alchemy)
  • Emma’s example: Buffy the Vampire Slayer (witchcraft)
  • Allison’s example: Sabriel by Garth Nix (Necromancy)

  • EDIT: Allison apologizes to her fellow Sabriel fans, as there are NINE precincts of death in the series, not seven. This is potentially a nod to Dante’s Inferno, in which there are nine levels of hell.
