ABOUT

     Electromancy is a new audio fiction fantasy adventure podcast, which follows the story of Jenna, a teenage lightning mage (or electromancer) who, after hiding her powers for years, is finally discovered and forced to attend the Royal Institute for the Study of Sorcery. There she will find allies, enemies, mysteries, monsters, and intrigue. And you thought your high school was bad.

 

     We’re hoping to launch this summer, and we’ll have a release date soon. Over the next few weeks we'll be revealing our cast, so check back soon.

 

THE WORLD

     Electromancy takes place in the Oswerian Empire, a society that has subjugated many surrounding lands, mostly by being better at finding, training, and weaponizing it’s mages than anyone else. Anyone found to have magical powers is required to attend the Institute, then complete five years of military or civilian service to the government, depending on their specific powers.

 

     There are many aspects, also called natures, the most common being pyromancy (fire magic), cryomancy (ice magic) and electromancy (lightning magic). Most mages can only perform one type of magic, and have a power level rating between 1 and 12. Occasionally a mage will be found with the ability to perform two different types of magic. These rare individuals are called dual-natured, and they’re highly praised by the magecorps.

 

Known aspects:

 

Biomancy (Healing)

Cryomancy (ice magic) 

Electromancy (lightning magic) 

Faunamancy (animal magic)

Floramancy (plant magic)

Necromancy (death magic)

Photomancy (light magic) 

Psychomancy (telepathy) 

Pyromancy (fire magic) 

Sonomancy (sound magic)

Spatiomancy (teleportation) 

Temporamancy (prophecy/ time travel) 

Umbramancy (shadow magic)
