Magic Video Series 4: The Arcane Circle

Here’s the fourth video in a series aimed at reducing the insane mess that is the Magic System Page to a more accessible format. This video looks in depth at the arcane circle, the backbone of any serious Mind Weave spell:

This is only a brief look at each of these components, but it does a good job of describing what each is used for. Hopefully these descriptions can be used as a starting point to know where to look for more details.

You can take a look at my spell posts for Saturdays to get an idea of how the arcane circle is used in spells. The arcs and radii are indicated at the beginning of each line underneath the hands.
