Magic is the use of, creation of and organization of a type of matter known as Mana. Yes, I'm sure you've heard that term before. Has it ever been explained to you fully? Most likely not, so I'll do it now in the context of Destinyscape-Zetacraft.
MC: Mana Count. This number shows how much mana is stored or can be stored within it.
MRR: The rate at which a material will regenerate Mana. An object whose MRR is higher than its MDR will regenerate Mana. An object whose MRR and MDR are equal will neither regenerate or lose Mana. And lastly, an object whose MDR higher will lose Mana.
MDR: The rate at which Mana decays in the said material. This is the main function of Magic canceling items, as they have an extremely high MDR.
UMC: A container that holds useable Mana, thus called: Useable Mana Container.
There are four types of Mana on the realm: Stable, Unstable, Aberrant, and Anti-Mana.
First we'll talk about Stable Mana. Stable Mana is used in all Spells, evil or good, powerful or weak, in order to conjure up whatever you're using(Fire, Water, and nearly anything else).
Unstable Mana is our second subject. Any space where Stable Mana is, this is never far behind. It's the aftermath of used Mana. So, that fireball you shot only did damage because of the Unstable Mana that had contact with the guy you wrecked back there. The heat from the fireball came from the decaying Mana, which in a large scale, would have exploded violently. Apart from being a byproduct of Mana, it's also naturally around you in small amounts. It can be used to make explosives, if used correctly. If you can condense it, pack it in a Rune, and carry it without it bursting, you have a successful Mana bomb.
Abberant Mana is our third subject. This strange and deadly Mana is found when Stable or Unstable Mana is fermented. This happens if the Mana cannot move for a long time, making it literally rot. This kind of Mana can actually be seen, and should be avoided. If you breathe it in, ingest it, or otherwise get it inside your system, it'll rot you from the inside out. There are some mages who use it, and can "safely" be around it. This is because they've already taken in the lethal amount, and can't feel the effects. This allows them to do research on how to use it, or at least make it safe.
Last, but not least, is Anti-Mana. Anti-Mana is the absence of any other Mana, and not only this, it destroys Mana. Not much else is known about Anti-Mana.
There are many kinds of Magic. They're split into groups in order to organize them by power and Mana cost: T1(1), T2(4), Concentrated(16), T3(64), T4(256), T5(1024), T6(4096), T7(16384), T8(65536), T9(262144), T10(1048576)
Mana can be used to make objects. These are known as Nova Gems. Nova Gems are basically tanks of Mana, they can't regenerate Mana but hold massive amounts. In this system, Nova=128. If you combine 2 Nova Spells with each other you get a Supernova Spell, worth 256. Combine 2 of those to get a Hypernova, worth 64. Combine 2 of those to get a Meganova, worth 128. Seal it's power inside a UMC capable of holding a total amount of 11576 MC or more. This usually means a semi-rare gemstone such as a Sapphire or Emerald, if you don't want to waste. This creates a powerful and valuable Nova Gem. Most of the time, only experienced magic users or priests can create and use these. After that, get a UMC capable of 133,943,776, usually meaning a Ruby or Diamond. Using 2 Nova Gems, force their MC head on into the stronger UMC. A powerful impact causes them both to explode, and then absorb that energy into themselves, powering up the resulting energy exponentially to 133,943,776. This is now called a Supernova Gem. Once this has been made, and a duplicate has been as well, you then have the power to make a Hypernova Gem. Proceed to do the same process done earlier to create the Hypernova Gem. This time, you need a UMC capable of containing a staggering 17,940,935,129,138,176 MC. This means using Onyx or in rare circumstances, a Godstone. Using the power of 2 of these, you can then create a Meganova Gem. It is required you use a Godstone, or it's power will overflow and cause the UMC itself to explode violently, engulfing you and quite a bit of the realm you're in. It has no other way to discharge power. Once charged into the Godstone the same way as before, you have a Meganova Gem with 1,287,508,613,231,777,039,783,154,002,427,904 MC.

Now, those were regular spells that affect ONLY the targeted person, persons, or area. Curses are on another level. Curses harm the user to add a powerful effect to a person, persons, or area.
Curses are far more versatile than regular magic. As long as it doesn't completely break a logic barrier, a Curse can do nearly anything. However, since experimenting with Curses can mortally wound the tester, people rarely try to make new ones. Think of it this way, if the effect is to instantly kill the victim, then it follows this rule: A life for a life. Thus it would kill you instantly as well. However, if it was to say, poison the victim, it would either harm you, or poison you, but not both, or neither. Each action has an equal and negative reaction. If the caster has more than two Curses active, the caster gets a slight headache. After four, it's a pounding headache. After six, they feel fine. Finally, once they activate a tenth, their head implodes. It is not reccomended to have more than two. A Curse can be invoked simply by speaking the name of the Curse.
Known AND Common Curses:
Curse of the Martyr: This Curse has no instant effect. However, if the caster is killed, the killer is also killed.
Curse of the Burning Man: This Curse is a bit strange. If the caster is lit on fire in any way, shape or form by the attacker, they gain a short burst of immortality and vigor.
Curse of the Sacred: If a demon, or angel attacks the caster while it's active, the angel or demon will instantly die. The caster is then struck with a godlike lightning attack.
May the Ground Shatter at our Feet, and the Skies Rain Fire: This is one of the more dangerous and ominous Curses. If the caster is fighting a battle that the Gods themselves know the person can't win, and it's a life or death situation, the ground will swallow the enemies, and the Inferno spell will be cast on the caster.
I'm Still Walking: The caster feels no pain, and cannot die for two whole days. Once the time is up, they feel all the pain they endured.
A spell to force your foe into your eternal hunting grounds. You can hold them in this state as long as you have Mana to spare. Casting spells in this state will either weaken or stop the effects of this spell. Physical attacks or spiritual attacks have no affect on the spell. While there, your foe cannot fight back, as it will seriously injure them.
A spell used both by Vampires and Vampire hunters. It siphons the foe's blood in order to supply you with enough power to unload on them. It works better at night. It works at it's finest during a blood moon, allowing you to siphon Mana, health and even their Soul.
Your skin becomes colder than hell frozen over. Physical damage is negated completely, and your weapon freezes your foe solid. This power, however, is difficult to use due to it's massive Mana cost.
Seal of Trap
Your Soul becomes a trap. Any who dare touch you will find themselves without a Soul, and you'll have an extra source of power. The body of the foe is transmuted into Mana, and their remaining Mana is split evenly into Mana and health for you. This technique only works on enemies weaker than yourself.
Seal of Blood
Your blood becomes Steel. You cannot be hurt for a short period of time, and any magical attacks that hit you transmute into usable Mana.
God Magic is a form of Magic that can only be performed by Greater Gods or higher.
The Skril Scream was created by Skril' Astriloth. It's a powerful demonic roar capable to shattering a foe's will to fight, as well as their defensive measures. It can usually only be used by other Skril' Demons, but if a being's hatred and willpower is strong enough, they can learn it.
Blinding Light was created by Dramae when he was still a Greater God. It takes a short time to charge, but as soon as it's charged, it can be used until the user runs out of Mana. This spell summons beams of cleansing light that emerge from the ground around the user. If a being who is evil was to look at these beams, they would lose their sight permanently. If hit by one, the being has one of three reactions. One, if the being is weaker than the caster, it will be immediately destroyed with no trace. Two, if the being is only slightly weaker, equal or slightly stronger, it will take incredible damage and will find most of it's Mana gone. Three, if the being is stronger, it will slowly leech their Mana until it's gone, at which point it will target it's Soul. Only beings of pure Light can learn and use it.
Soul Fire was created by the Demons of the first age. Soul Fire's main purpose was to cause a Soul to grow abnormally large, killing it's body so that Demons could harvest Souls faster. This power was extremely draining. If the spell was cast incorrectly, or the target wasn't viable, the caster would potentially die. For this reason, it was only taught to Demon high priests.
Dragonfire was created by the Dragon God, Schalos. It is an extremely potent fire breath attack that destroys a being's Soul, so that the body can be revived as a slave. A substantially less powerful version of this spell was taught to most other Dragons to give an edge against those who would do them harm. Only one kind of material could resist this: Mithril. Mithril's anti-Dragon properties make it a must when fighting Dragons that can use any variation of Dragonfire.
Super Dragonfire is similar to regular Dragonfire, however it has a few key differences. For one, this version can be launched over long distances in a napalm-like mix. This Dragonfire is also much more powerful, able to destroy the Soul of other Dragons.
Engine of Wrath
Engine of Wrath was created by the Energy Clan to purge impurities from the Realm. These could include Void Rot, and other harmful effects. This spell is difficult to use, due to how much Mana it requires. The Energy Clan members all have unusually high Mana Counts, so they have no problem with it. If cast by others, a group is usually needed to sustain such a powerful cleansing Magic.
Nature's Might was created by Yzaar-Takous. She uses it to smite those who destroy nature without atoning for their sins. It's rarely used for it's true purpose, though. Often, it's used as a primary attack, coupled with fire spells. The attack itself grows a thick thorn bush around the target, injecting them with many horrible poisons. Since the bush is flamable, lighting it ablaze does even more damage.
Understanding Magic Damage
Damage is simply the damage done when attacking.
When an attack deals light damage, it does equal to the [user's level] + 2.
When an attack does light-medium damage, it does equal to the [user's level] x 1.5 + 1.
When an attack does medium damage, it does equal to the [user's level] x 2 + 4.
When an attack does heavy damage, it does equal to the [user's level] x 2.5 + 5.
When an attack does massive damage, it does equal to the ([user's level] x 3) + ([target's level] x 0.5).
When an attack does amazing damage, it does equal to the ([user's level] x 4) + ([target's level] x 0.75).
When an attack does ludicrous damage, it does equal to the ([user's level] x 5) + ([target's level] x 1.25).
When an attack does God-like damage, it does equal to the ([user's level] x 7.5) + ([target's level] x 2) + 10.
So, if Jared's level is 32, and his attack is doing heavy damage, his attack would do 85 damage.
And, if Michael's level is 49 and his enemy is level 33, and his attack is doing massive damage, his attack would do 163.5, but would be rounded down to the nearest full number, so 162 damage.
The final number will be called [magical damage], just for the sake of learning.
Armor blocks damage, as long as armor isn't ignored or shattered. Some spells also do more damage to an opponent with metal armor. For future reference, AV meaning Armor Value, or the power of the armor. Magic that is absorbed turns into Mana. Armor sets are made of 3 pieces: Helm, Body and Leggings. Helmets have 10% of the set's AV, Bodies have 50% and Leggings have 40%
Armor is separated into a few groups. Some can deflect magic, others can absorb it for the wearer, or the magic could be amplified and hurt the person more. Absorbing Curse Magic that affects the wearer will break the Curse, to the point where it will most likely have an unintended effect.
Regular (Deflects nothing, absorbs nothing, amplifies Lightning)
Leather(Minecraft Only): Full set has an AV of 7.
Bronze: Full set has an AV of 11.
Iron: Full set has an AV of 15.
Diamond(Minecraft Only): Full set has an AV of 20.
Steel: Full set has an AV of 35.
Absorption (Deflects nothing, absorbs 10% Mana, amplifies nothing)
Mithril: Full set has an AV of 57, and absorbs Ice and Water.
Laevium: Full set has an AV of 147, and absorbs Fire, and Air.
Orphalite: Full set has an AV of 201, and absorbs Darkness and Light.
Deflection (Deflects objects and Magic, absorbs nothing, amplifies nothing)
Adamant: Full set has an AV of 71, and can deflect Fire, Ice, and Darkness.
Zephyrium: Full set has an AV of 120, and can deflect Sky, Dragon and Earth.
Zamitite: Full set has an AV of 239, and can deflect Curses and Special Magic.
Power Armor (Deflects 10% Magic damage to nearest entity, absorbs 15% Magic and amplifies nothing)
Runical: Full set has an AV of 94, deflects Water and Ice and absorbs Sky.
Dragonite: Full set has an AV of 173, deflects Sky, Earth and Fire and absorbs Dragon and Curses.
Rainbow: Full set has an AV of 260, deflects Fire, Ice and Lightning, absorbs Water, Sky, Earth, Light and Dragon.
Godly Armor (Varies)
First Age: Full set has an AV of 333, absorbs all Magics (25%), amplifies Special (10%).
Amount of damage blocked
The amount of damage that is blocked by armor is determined by this formula:
(([User's level] x 0.25) + AV) + [Innate ARM from leveling]
Whatever this formula equals is called ARM.
So if Max is level 78 and he's using Orphalite Armor, then his ARM is 240. This means he can take 240 Damage before he starts actually taking damage.
So the formula for how much damage you'll take is
ARM - DMG
If the answer is negative, that negative number is how much you take. Otherwise, you take no damage.
Let's recap on this so far. We have two people who want to fight. Lauren is level 50, and knows a spell that can deal massive damage. Aaron is level 20 and is wearing Runical Armor. Could Aaron survive the spell if he has 160 Health?
Aaron has 99 ARM in total. Lauren's Spell can do 160 damage total in this fight. So, let's use our formula from before. 99 - 160 = -61. Aaron will take 61 Damage, and be left with 99 Health.
Some stats increase when the character levels up. These include Maximum Health and Mana, Strength and ARM. Some things to keep in mind: Every living creature is born/created with only 1 Mana, STR, 0 ARM and 10 Health.
Max. Health: Each level, between 1 and 10 Max. Health is gained. Health is required to keep living. Once it hits 0, it's game over, man.
Max. Mana: Every 5 levels, between 1 and 4 Max Mana is gained. Mana is used to cast Spells, and it regenerates automatically at a rate of 1 per hour, but can be enhanced with outside effects.
Strength(STR): Each level, between 1 and 5 Strength is gained. Strength determines how strong attacks will be with weapons such as a Sword or Spear.
ARM: Every 4 levels, 1 ARM is gained.
Physical damage is more complicated than others since there are so many outcomes.
Physical damage is determined by the following formula:
(STR + ([user's level] x 0.25)) + [weapon's STR stat] = [physical damage]
The number that this equals is called DMG.
A weapon's STR stat is determined by it's [base STR], which is attached to it's [weapon type], and the [material] used.
Sword: Swords are fast, but give the lowest STR value. [Material] x 0.11
Axe: Axes are slow but the best STR value. [Material] x 0.2
Spear: Spears are pretty average, giving long reach, medium speed and the second lowest STR value. [Material] x 0.13
Hammer: Hammers are slow, but have a crippling effect and the second best STR value. [Material] x 0.15
Bow: Bows are quite average with medium speed and STR and have the capacity for long reach. [Material(Look in this link for Material STR values)] x 0.14
Bronze: Adds an additional 5 STR
Iron: Adds an additional 10 STR
Steel: Adds an additional 20 STR
Mithril: Adds an additional 40 STR
Adamant: Adds an additional 80 STR
Runical: Adds an additional 160 STR
Zephyr: Adds an additional 320 STR
Laevium: Adds an additional 480 STR
Dragonite: Adds an additional 560 STR
Orphalite: Adds an additional 600 STR
Zamitite: Adds an additional 620 STR
Rainbow: Adds an additional 800 STR
Ancient: Adds an additional 1400 STR
First Age: Adds an additional 2000 STR
So a Mithril Sword would have a [Base STR] of 44. A Zephyr Hammer would have a [Base STR] of 362.
So let's say Jay had an unlucky roll. He only got one STR every level for 20 levels. He likes using a Steel Spear.
(STR + ([user's level] x 0.25)) + [weapon's STR stat] = [physical damage]
(20 + (20 x 0.25)) + 3
(20 + 5) + 3
So Jay's DMG is 28. When in combat, he has a very high chance of hitting a 28.
This is where you can start dealing some seriously heavy attacks. Hybrid damage is where a weapon is imbued with a certain Magic Spell. Say we imbued Fireball(LV1 Fire) into a Bronze Sword. If the User was level 1, with 1 base STR with this weapon, it would have 10 damage instead of the normal 5 for a Bronze Sword.
How this is calculated is:
[weapon's STR stat] = [material] x [weapon type]
(STR + ([user's level] x 0.25)) + [weapon's STR stat] = [physical damage]
[physical damage] + [magical damage]
If you need info on [magical damage], see above in "Understanding Magic Damage".
This allows for some seriously powerful weaponry. Unfortunately, when you imbue a weapon, it only stays imbued until you hit an entity. That first hit is powered by the imbue, and thus lets you do tons of damage early on.

Mana Regenerating Objects
The idea that objects can generate Mana is nothing new. But, before now (Year 3008), no one knew how it happened.
Mana regeneration is typically only observed to happen in beings made of mind, body and Soul. However, objects only have a body. This should mean it's impossible to regenerate Mana, but, time and time again, that statement has been proven to be false.
It has been proven that inanimate objects can develop a Soul, if linked to a living being. The being must then infuse it with Mana and a shard of their own Soul. Now, the mind will send most of the information to the being, and a small amount to the object. In this sense, you can store information.
Once an object has too much Mana and information crammed into it, the Mana collapses in on itself, creating a miniature Blackhole spell. This spell will draw more Mana to the object, but this process would be excruciatingly slow. However, this isn't a problem. Members of the Research Facility have discovered a few different things that would suggest an idea for high-speed regeneration. The first are the records of an incredibly powerful mage. Her name was Aria Silverwind, a member of the Silverwind clan before they all died off. Aria was the one who discovered and professed in Nova magic. She seemed particularly interested in Blackhole spells, of which she wrote many books and theories about. One particular book was supposed to be a record of her final experiment. The experiment was an attempt to delve into the depths of Anti-Mana, however, it was never completed. The experiment was what killed her, being too much for her to handle. Aria, being a Voratian, had access to their technology. She set up a high-speed collision between a Meganova Gem and a large chunk of Obsidian. What she theorized would happen was that the energy transfer would infinitely loop, creating a powerful Mana generator. What actually happened was an explosion powerful enough to shatter a continent and plague the shards with overwhelming amounts of Mana. Only one shard remained in the Realm itself; The Wintergreen Isles. This explosion lasted for about three days before collapsing in on itself, forming a Blackhole. The total destruction didn't stop there. Tok-Medasz attempted to neutralize the Blackhole and repair the damages
, but the Blackhole only split into smaller pieces. These pieces found their way into many objects around the Realm. The objects which already had a small Blackhole in them then attempted to pull on the other ones. But, since both were the same size, they could not swallow each other. This, in turn created massive amounts of resonant Mana and Mana residue. This event kept occuring, thus creating Mana regenerating objects. Keep in mind not every object has this property, as some were not subject to this experience.
Due to recent research, most of the previous theory is wrong. Regeneration is still, however, tied to density. Simply put, Mana entering an object is easier than escaping. More Mana pushed into a small space will react with surrounding Mana, causing a growth in the amount in the object. When it reaches the cap, the rest simply overflows, thus the regeneration.
Objects with a high density generated more Mana than less dense objects. Below is a list of all known objects that can regenerate Mana. Paired and combined together, the objects reach an exponentially higher regeneration rate ([Density]2.2). Regeneration is determined by an object's density(in g/cm3). Every gram is 0.062 Mana/hour.
Each value in parenthesis is the regeneration rate for 1 cm3 worth of material.

Luminosity is basically the brightness of an object or force of some kind. It also refers to the radiant output of an object, visible or otherwise.
Objects of different luminosities are, depending on the output, either more or less dangerous, bright or powerful than others. Many objects give off radiation, but usually, it's completely harmless. These cases are often just light emitting objects.
Categories of Radiation
Magical Radiation: Magical Radiation is the output of a spell or of Magic in general. It typically has a short travel distance before dissipating. Special cases like area of effect spells have larger radiation zones.
Mana Radiation: Mana Radiation comes in many forms. Most often, it's the natural and harmless output of a realm's Soul and remnants of creation. However, some areas have unusually and even unnaturally high levels of Mana Radiation. One prime example would be the Wintergreen Isles, with constant raging Mana storms and radiation-induced apparitions. Mana Radiation also occurs when an object is moving at an incredibly fast speed, though the circumstances for this are still being researched.
Light Radiation: Light Radiation is, on average, safer and also more common than the other two before it. Anything that can generate light gives off this radiation. Unless viewed with too much luminosity, it's absolutely harmless.
Void Rot: Void Rot is a type of radiation that acts as radiation and propagates a disease. Anything it comes in contact with, will be disrupted on a microscopic level. Thus, this radiation is extremely dangerous. Once disrupted, the object in question then becomes a combination of dark purple, grey and black, it becomes slightly transparent and it becomes much harder to break. It radiates from anything that is already infected with Void Rot.
Levels of Luminosity
Luminosity is measured through LU, short for Luminosity Unit. 1 LU is equal to 600 lumens. An LU with a negative value will absorb light equal to half of the negative value. Objects/sources not included here either have a value of 0 or an undefined value. 1 LU is equal to 0.10 Mana.
Average Fire spell - 6 LUs (3,600 lumens)
Average Ice spell - 0.6 LUs (360 lumens)
Average Lightning spell - 45 LUs (27,000 lumens)
Average Darkness spell - -3 LUs (-1,800 lumens)
Average Healing spell - 15 LUs (9,000 lumens)
Average Light spell - 67 LUs (40,200 lumens)
Average Sky spell - 9 LUs (5,400 lumens)
Average Dragon spell - 3 LUs (1,800 lumens)
Average Nova spell - 2,110 LUs (1,266,000 lumens)
Average Astral spell - 1,480 LUs (888,000 lumens)
