Teratology By: Scrasamax

In the years before the advent of arcanotechnology and dimensional fatigue events, teratology was the study of abnormalities and biological deformations.

Cartogramancy - The Magic of Maps By: Dozus

'Anyone can draw a map, boy - there's no more difficulty in that than laying brick. What makes maps useful is when they are so proper, so precise, that they are living images of the places they represent. Encompassing knowledge of the geography, and mastery of the very space itself - that, child, is cartogramancy.'

Thaumatechnology By: Kassil

Thaumatechnology - in a world where straight magic has an unnerving tendency to get the user killed, either by magical catastrophe or by being lynched by an upset mob, this is a much safer form of magical use... Even if it does occasionally explode.
