“Thaumaturgy… which giveth certain order to make strange works, of the sense to be perceived and of men greatly to be wondered at.” - Mathematicall Praeface to Euclid’s Elements (1570), John Dee

Thaumaturgy is the capability of a magician to work miracles. A practitioner of thaumaturgy is a thaumaturge, thaumaturgist or miracle worker.

This is what this mod is all about – drawing magic from physical objects in the form of “Vis” and reshaping it to perform miracles.

At its core this mod allows you to turn raw matter in vis, which can then be used to power magical symbols, enchant items or even turn back into different, slightly tastier kinds of matter.
