That's an excellent point you make. Maybe if 'magic' was discussed a bit in the game manual, that it's a secrative group, hard to infiltrate and become a part of, players would be better prepared when starting out.

If I'm right but there is no wife around to acknowledge it, am I still right?

Hmm, that is actually true Benedict. There's hardly someone standing around with a big ad going: "Want to blow your enemies away with a fireball? Step right up! Two-week-crash-course in magic is available for the low price of nothing at all!"

Most games actually have that approach if you think about it. I greatly enjoy playing a Mage in all of PBs games, and the approach to magic is certainly one of the reasons (in PBs games you actually feel special because you're a Mage).
