Thousands of moons ago, an obscure magical art developed by the Magic Resistance beneath the disquieting tides of the Magilectric Revolution: reverse-engineering... Some refuse to acknowledge its existence. Some mistakenly believe it a form of witchcraft or dark magic, entranced by its binary spells and shadowy hexes. The outer world rarely catches more than a glimpse of these powerful mages, for each youngling learns from an elder reverse-engineer, under a non-existent disclosure agreement, knowledged memcpy'd straight to their brains. A write-only memory spell ensured total secrecy of the art form... until today. Learn the exploits of a young mage and her memory restoration spell. Registers and secrets spilled in this magilectric adventure.
