I had watched my father creating the Arma Maga the entire time he was doing it, so the circuit like growths that ran across the surface had come at no surprise. My father had told me that it was a product of a spell by the name of Structural Analysis which was a spell that was based off of your ability to create Arma Maga. After examining the bow, he said it was constructed with the understanding branch of magic theory, and then went on to say that runes were a more traditional form of magic, and it seemed that my family had some basis in understanding based magic, and I felt the need to correct him on this point, saying, "Actually, Alfred, until my generation my family worked solely on Logic based magic. The introduction of Understanding based theory into the search for the Original Flame was due to my adaption of the family magic, taking the logical principles that they had passed down through generations in our grimoire and translating them into an understanding based format. My father created that bow with me in mind while looking through my notes to create the proper effect in the understanding branch. If you notice, those are not the normal Nordic runes of humans that are engraved, but elvish runes," I said, pointing out the various runes that adorned my bow.
After I cleared that up, I listened to his explanation of the basics of Arma Maga creation, which I had a general understanding of already from watching my father and asking him to explain, however there were a few finer details that I learned from this, including the fact that one had to understand everything about the object they were enchanting to do it properly, which was something I could not have observed from just watching my father. He then explained something I was aware of, the fact that there were two ways to input an effect into an arma maga, through understanding or logic.
When he asked if I was keeping up with him, I responded, "Yes, you are making perfect sense, Alfred. Please continue, I am excited to know what else you have to teach me," I said, settling down into a more studious manner, making mental notes of everything he had said so that I could attempt to create one later when I had time. Perhaps it could be used to supplement my current bows, perhaps an intensifier that created spell arrows? Putting that thought aside, I returned my attention to Alfred, and waited for him to continue the lesson.
