  • The Magicians Syfy T.V series. How can it tie to Mage: The Awakening?

    Do you find a lot of similarities?

    I think someone suggested the finger tutting as a yantra.

      I used at inspiration for Mortal Sorcerors, but kept concepts like Popper's Exercises for Mage.

        Penny is literally a Mastigos: his discipline is telepathy with a specialty in teleportation.

        Quentin, Alice, Margot, Cady, and Elliot are in Physical House, which seems to govern all areas of matter manipulation and energy, so probably Moros and Obrimos; Alice's specialty is phospheromancy (light manipulation), so Obrimos. Don't know about the others.

        Julia is a little peculiar, since we never really see her at Brakebills. But I reckon she's an Obrimos, since her "signature" spell is creating a shower of sparks that can amp up to the power of a welding torch when she's upset.

          I was putting Quentin as Acanthus with Forces, as his main story is about... well, stories and fae creatures - and his Destiny. Elliot is clearly Obrimos, where Alice is probably Moros ( she is good in transmutations and later is dedicated to Death related studies ).

            What do you mean Changeling Arcadia plotline?

              I'm assuming the point is that Fillory operates more like Arcadia from CtL than the Supernal Realm that shares the name, and that both the books and the show start to heavily move into Fillory as a core part of the plot..

                The Free Trader Beowulf and its legacy made me think on the Free council and their lorehouses.
