Hey there hive mind deckers and wanders. I’m doing a paper for my magic practicum at Uni Windsor. Anyways, I’m hoping for input from the Matrix brave Mages, Shamans, Witches and everyone in between.
Anyways, I’m arguing that yes, magic goes in cycles. Like up and down. But sometimes there’s spikes that happen. There’s the resurfacing old languages that Big D’s will pointed out and some really important artefacts that radiate higher grades of magic than anything we can make presently normally. Then bam! Some smchuk has an uber powerful item that they swear chip truth their cousin over in Ukraine made. And I’m just wondering how do spikes happen, like world wide. And what’s their overall impact. Example: The Rift totally reads high and is affecting everything on the astral.
If spikes happened in magic we would all be freaks.
There are some who have seen the world fall from high magic to such low levels to make dragons sleep, and look! They’re awake! As of 2012, dragons woke up.
But what happens when magic gets high? Look for the Wraiths. Beware the Insect Cults. And Toxic Shamans just make it worst. Oh and don’t forget the so-called spike babies. You know the elves and dwarves born like up to 2 decades before the explosion of metababies being born regularly.
But for reals, send an email to Draco Foundation. They love you uni kids.
Spikes happen. And it’s never good. Never. Except for the spike babies.
No one really understands how rad and strong toxins affect magic, other than the latter create unstable portions in the astral and the former seems to kill the astral, or at least block it. But, Toxic Shamans seem to get an increase to their magic, especially in rad zones. Which echoes in the astral outside of the affected zone. And hives seem to appear nearby.
Another source of Magic spikes is ritual magic like what they Amerinds used to get out of the concentration camps. And blood magic is really bad for spiking.
OQ is right.
Spikes are bad and endanger the world and metahumanity with dangers beyond the Metaplanes.
Shadowspirits are a new to you/old to Dragons and terrifying entities that do not need anyone to summon them. They just appear where the ambient magic levels are high. They seek the destruction of life.

Blood magic doesn’t exist.
Big D put a bounty on Blood Mages. They gotta exist. And be bad for stuffs too.
Spikes happen. Ritual use. Blood magic. Astral Travelling. And Nukes all seem to make them happen.
