X-Jacks    Systems  (Mystical)   (General)

I have never been happy with the way that magical constructs were presented in games.  Admittedly, a large statue stomping the surrounding countryside is an impressive image.  But the logic (or lack thereof) involved has always bothered me.

There exists a prestigious academy with a history going back hundreds of years. Graduates are highly skilled and very much sought after for employment. For purely traditional reasons, the academy requires its students to become proficient in a skill or area of knowledge that has no use in the modern world. This could be Ancient Egyptian, an antiquated form of writing such as shorthand, knowledge of building or repairing antique steam engines, programming COBOL, etc. PCs who graduated from this academy must be sure to have this skill in their repertoire.
