Thread: Name of Magical Source?

    Name of Magical Source?

    For a short story/novella I'm starting I need a name for a material which has magical properties. In the novel it is used to enhance humans, allow the use of magic, and fix imperfections in the body (making artificial limbs and animating them to the will of the user). Now, this material is similar to, if anybody has played, Final Fantasy 7's Mako/Materia. I thought of calling it Saphire, but that just doesn't really work...so I just need a name, if you can afford to spare the time?

    Well, since you mentioned a japanese source. I'd look into nasuverse's magic rules. They are really well defined and Nasu is rather famous by how well explained his magic interpretation is. It will take some work to find an actual resume on the whole thing, though.

    I'd call it Super Magic Wonder Goop, or if that's too much, simply Magic Wonder Goop -- or even Magic Goop if you want to go minimalist with it.

    Maybe look into some other esoteric energy names? Orgone energy is a type of energy that was once used by a Doctor (forget his name) to help curing cancer and diseases. It is popularly sold today to negate the effects of radiation, chem trails and negatively charged energy in the home and the environment. The energy is called orgone, the pieces that create positive orgone energy are called orgonite. People wear them to stay well and reduce effects from cell phones, microwaves etc. So yeah, after all that rambling, maybe somehting to do with orgone?

    Too complicated a name, Alanmt. That'll be a ten dollar rejection fee?

    Rejections are free, Aaron! If I had to pay a publisher every time I received a rejection, my lil baby girl would starve!
