Move: Use Magic

When you attempt to control the object of your domain* (within close or intimate range, for up to 5 seconds in combat and 1 minute outside of combat) in a supernatural manner, you are using magic.

Declare your intent for the magic, and decide the spell most relevant to your intent.

Spells

Each spell has a two-box track.

When you gain the move "Use Magic", and whenever you advance, you may mark 1 spell's box.

Note: When you advance, marking a spell's box does not count as your "single" advancement reward.
