Charmstone Terminology

Do you need to catch up on magical terms? This will help below: 

ACADEMY CHECKPOINT EXAMS:  a student must pass two levels of examinations for the seven types of magic. The first checkpoint is at the end of year six, and the second is at the end of the twelfth year.  The highest score is a level 100 domination, which only 1% of magical beings can achieve. 

ALBULEPOS: a type of magic that includes healing and charm magic - all things positive and can be cast without a trade-off. Albulepos enchantments can heal wounds, give glamour, boost good luck, and a few beneficial love potions.

 

ALCHIMIA: a type of magic that involves the combination and manipulation of tangible items to produce an effect on the target. Otherwise known as 'witches' brews.' 

AMALGAM: a magician born from a magician parent and ordin parent.

ANIMO: a type of magic that is the art of telepathy and mind control of similar species. Telekinesis, astral projections, and other out-of-body spells. 

APEX MAGE: only the top 1% of magicians of Magus Hollow qualify to become an Apex Mage - which means they have mastered the seven types of magic with a level 100 domination on their Academy Checkpoint Exams. To earn the official title, they must also pass the Guardian Honor Test. 

BUBINGA WAND: a rare, expensive wand that works best on the Dark Craft spells. 

COROCOTTAS: a type of magic that encompasses all magic involving animals, including telepathically reading the minds of animals and communicating with them. This also includes mind control of animals and shape-shifting from human to animal forms. 

ELEMENTUM: a type of magic that is the broadest category of spells and includes everything involving the four elements - earth, wind, fire, ice. 

EMPRESS APEX MAGE: the most powerful magician alive. There can only be one at a time, and they are typically headmistresses/headmasters of the Charmstone Academy. When the Empress Apex Mage dies, an Emperor Apex Mage will replace her, and after he dies, an Empress will take his place, and so on. A caveat is that the successor could not have had anything to do with the reigning ruler's death. 

ENORIM: one of the four guilds of Charmstone Academy known for popularity, leadership, and loyalty.

FRANKINCENSE OIL: an essential oil used by the magical community to strengthen or, in some cases, restore magical powers.

This test will weed out the magicians who master the seven types of magic that have ill intent and prevent them from becoming members of the Charmstone Academy faculty and/or the Mystic Militum. 

GRAND SUPREME STUDENT: this is analogous to the student body president in ordin schools. This 12th-year student has tested the highest on their first checkpoint exams at year six and exudes leadership skills, responsibility, and moral character superior to others.

GRIMM: One of the four guilds of Charmstone Academy known for wisdom and intelligence.
