World of Sharr
Sometimes seen as the “Cousin of Alchemy” by those Wysers involved in neither discipline, Seal Mastery uses the power of ancient glyphs to hold and contain the magical essence of various effects. By embuing these Seals with manna, the Seal Master may, at his discretion, release the manna – culminating in the desired effect. Power is in the shape of the Seal itself. By compacting manna into specific forms, a Seal Master can mimic almost all of the abilities of the other magic disciplines – theoretically. Unfortunately, it takes much time to learn and memorize these Seals so that the Wyser is capable of drawing them without flaw – which can often prove disasterous. As well, there is not yet known a Seal for every effect. However, through both field excavations and personal research, the Wysers are attempting to find and develop more to add to their collective repetoire.
