The magic of the Research Sect is,
quite simply, the magic of science. Spells that disrupt another caster,
open, fix, mend, or destroy mechanical machinations are easily within
the range of the Research Sect. It is also within the Research Sects
power to alter, manipulate, create, or destroy magnetism of any kind.
Like all of the Recognized Forms of Magic, Research Magic is a method
for incredibly powerful spells to be cast, and thus, has it's own
Forbidden Magic. Locked away by the Magus Council, these Spells are too
powerful for any but the most stalwart of heroes to weild.
- Unlimited Power
Utilizing this Forbidden Spell, the Caster creates what is almost
akin to a Mani fuel source: Mani itself powers a machine, and due to

first glance such a focus upon the defence rather then the attack would
not be attractive enough for the Research Sect to maintain even what
limited numbers it does command.
However the Research Sect does more then just fight. They are the
masters of all kinds of bizarre technologies and magical devices,
utilising their skills as engineers as well as Casters. Of course this
has led to some more . . . interesting . . . results including
rampaging mutant chairs, biting swords, screaming pens and other such
incidents. And, naturally, a potentially fatal explosion is always
around the corner when you are working in any Research Sect lab.
