For questions about the role and nature of magic in a game or setting. This covers more than just spells and spellcasting, including the nature of magic, and general rules regulating magic.

The tag is about magic as general a concept, system, quality, or so on in gameplay, mechanics, or game lore.

Note that the tag isn't aiming to be a catch-all for every single question about magical things, so in general if you're asking about something more specific that is also incidentally magical (such as , , , or ), you don't need to use this tag, unless you are also asking specifically about magic as a concept/system/quality/etc.
