[quote=“Bran, post:14, topic:1428”][quote=“Bran, post:12, topic:1428”][quote=“DK The Mage, post:9, topic:1428”]First, more often than not, when one thinks they are being cursed, they are most likely causing it themselves. It’s not often that you, in particular, are the target of a magician of such scale that it will actually impact you. And when it does come, you learn how to deal with it.
as WrithingParasite points out, obstacles and suffering are natural growing pains in any field of study one wishes to advance. Whether it is magick, mathematics, physics, basket weaving, or Mormonism However, that does not necessarily mean that it will be due to any sort of baneful magick. It will most likely be due to the natural consequences of your advancements.
Third, it’s as simple as this, if you think you’re unprotected, then you’re unprotected. If you think you’re protected, and consciously perform protection to the best of your knowledge, then you’ll be protected.
Even in the case that a high level magician sends the most powerful entity to destroy you (which will most likely not happen, higher level magicians are rarely interested in dealing with lesser powers), you will have some means of escaping it. Even if it means turning to others for help.[/quote]
He’s back, ladies and gentlemen!!!
I’m almost happy to say that I’m not a High Level Magician yet. My level is way too much fun.:-p
But then again, I’m unique. ;-)[/quote]
How do you explain the successes of Baneful Magic then? Because there are lots of success stories. Not all of them will be true, but lots of others are true! I can tell you a couple of stories myself.
Or are you only talking about magicians being attacked?[/quote]
Yeah, I’m definitely not saying black magic doesn’t work. And if you’re intent enough of truly damaging someone … there’s very little recourse they could do … unless they are a practicing magician themselves and know a few tricks, or know someone who can help them get out of the funk. That’s all I’m saying Sorry if I didn’t make that all too clear.
