No, BALG just haven’t turned their attention to Greek magic, Daoism, Shinto or Asian shamanism yet.

It’s not that hard to do a simple research about the origins of magic in different cultures:

You have the tools to do research, so why not use it?

Chinese and Japanese incantations are very powerful.One of the reasons because of the way the language is structured. Very precise intonations that when you hear them you can feel the very air vibrate around them. If youve ever heard Noh theater you know what I mean.

My Japanese teacher was also an anthropologist so he had a lot to say about magic and superstition. Christianity never really took on a foothold in Japan. So compared to other cultures a lot of their culture is still intact. The problem is getting their children to continue traditions and maintain shrines and sacred places. Also a trend among young professionals to not want children has contributed to lowering birth rates. Japanese like the idea of angels and demons and have integrated them into popular culture because they relate them to their own spirits. But if you actually asked the average person to name an angel they wouldnt be able to. Unless maybe they watched a lot of supernatural romance anime LOL.

Oh, there are. Greeks had their own thing, and the far eastern cultures have some amazing insight into the realm of energy focusing and manipulation. I am just starting to read a little about it and it really is fascinating. The Japanese have a hard core system of black magick too, from what I have heard.

Also count the multiverse, most of these beings have physical form somewhere out their
