Novus Ordo Seclorum
The universal movement.
Chi is the princple of life and action.
All events and action stem from chi.
All personal sciences draw on the power of Chi.
Some practioners of thaumaturgy can draw upon the chi in the surrounding area to manifest magical effects, this drains the area of chi and causes it to be a chi dead areain which no magical effects can be created without the injection of external chi.
Several of the lesser forms of magic utilise the chi inherant in the user. Power words are an example of the use of personal chi.
Chi focused into combat attacks is an example of this use of power. There are no practioners of this form of chi in the campaign so far.
The more sophisticated forms of chi manipulation are described in personal science.
