Part V: Addenda

Final Thoughts

And so, magicians, this book of special tools draws to a close. I trust your magician's cabinet is hopefully full of all sorts of new implements you can use to wield your unique gifts.

Remember the four types of magic you create:

  • You bring us new worlds. You bring insight. You bring fresh perspectives. You enhance our lives and show us other identities we can be.

  • You return people to the secret land where smiles are born.

  • You actually create life, and once your job is done, those things you made continue to radiate life forever, whenever they're experienced again.

  • You transform those who experience your creations into co-creators, for you cause them to create life too. You turn those people who experience your games into magicians themselves. This is the greatest magic of all.

Hopefully, with the tools in this book, you can do all four of the preceding more artfully, and in a way that's uniquely your own.

I consider myself the luckiest of all men, for day after day, I spend my time either making magic or joining my alchemical talents together with fellow sorcerors to make magic that is more complex and powerful than any one of us could ignite alone.

I'm always surprised and gladdened to find that the world has a way of rolling out a rosy welcoming mat to magicians with honed talents, professional discipline, and a big heart. Are you one? If so, then thanks for pitching in, for the world certainly needs your gifts. And if you're not a practicing magician quite yet, we've got a place saved for you at the table.

I've laid out a few magician's tools in this book. I hope you'll take them for a spin and let me know how it all works out. This world is definitely in need of some additional magic. I'm eager to experience yours.
