This section introduces such things as mighty Wizards, magical spells and sorcerous items into the Warhammer game. In the Warhammer world, magic is a very real force - a force to be both feared and respected. Only beings that possess awesome mental and physical power can even hope to bend the powers of magic to their will. Lesser persons would be consumed in an instant - their minds torn apart by unfettered energies and their souls dragged to the darkest underworld by cackling daemons. Even the most accomplished sorcerers walk a narrow path between ultimate power and eternal damnation.
You will learn much from the pages that follow about how magic works in the Warhammer world, about the different kinds of spells, and about the ever present dangers of meddling with dark, sorcerous forces. Before we begin, let us make sure that we are properly prepared!
