"Curioos" art shop

I've been invited to the Curioos website, that sells wall art and nothing else. They offer a pretty impressive quality, and limited prints - I'm still working on that one, I wonder if anyone would be interested in having any. if you do, please let me know!
Find my shop here:

Rhoenoak: The Awakening published

I've been illustrating the Rhoenoak world of author John Enitsu's book trilogy for over a year. Now, the first book of the series is out on Amazon  just in time for Christmas. It's not an illustrated novel but the cover was done by me; you can find out more about the book on John's facebook page  and more art in my gallery.

As always, I am busy developing my fantasy world Genius Loci. You can find many artworks about its places, people, and legends here in my deviantArt gallery, and lots of writing and articles in my worldbuilding blog Starmaker's Gaze

Thank you very much for your kind Llama, though i tend to believe it has lost its way onto somewhere else where it is better deserved. In the meantime, rest assured it will be taken care of properly! :-)

Ah, llamas are indeed a free-minded bunch; yet brave enough to not hide their identities as supers :D

Hallo, Ranarh! I'm Club-Dreamiverse (autistic 18-year old big-hearted dreamer)! How's today? Also, care to see the creative Animate Your World ads?

Hello! I've been wondering for some time; what does magic look like in Genius Loci? What rules govern it, and what abilities can someone learn through its mastery? Is the magic conspicuous and direct, like Elder Scrolls or Dungeons and Dragons, or is it a more subtle and nuanced practice like Lord of the Rings? You've given us hints through speakers and the two types of magic-user and professions like the pendulors, but I'm very curious about magic in Genius Loci itself. Thanks for reading :]

GL magic is not Sword&Sorcery-flashy, it's indeed more like LotR, regarding the optics at least. No sparkly energies or light effects. Speakers construct spells upon casting, so it's not a set spells list, but made to fit the occasion (although mages do crave reliability and will always prefer using a spell from the Book of Magic instead of creating a new one).
Regarding abilities: there's little you can't do with speechcraft, but it's energy-intensive, and actually so hard to cast mini spells that comfort effects are out of the question except for grand masters. Most things can be achieved in many ways - invisibility for example can mean people ignore you, make you see-through, or make people forget you instantly. It matters how you mean a spell, especially wizard spells rely on the caster's intent. Importantly, magic is a science. You can't accidentally do anything. Also, speakers are not seen as "chosen" is any way, although cultures interpret their abilities differently.
Other than most settings, in GL it's possible to become a speaker later in life (and wear platemail as a mage/wizard. I do love the Elder Scrolls for making everyone a mage, though). The energy of the Fifth Power is a universal energy, like warmth, that anyone has inside; speakers just have a big surplus of it.
I hope this anwers some questions? I'll see about detailed articles on Starmaker's Gaze to shed more light on the fine details, so if you have more questions, shoot! And thanks for taking an interest :)
