In chapter 4 of City Builder we have a look at a few of the professional places to be found around town. Now the thing to remember here is that the book in question really can't cover every possibility, but we can hope that the reader is inspired to look into other such locations.
And neither can I cover everything that could be covered where magick in a fantasy setting is concerned. For I am a single individual, and real life technology is the product of numerous lives over numerous years. You can expect the same of a setting where magick works and has been brought to apply in numerous ways.
Consider just Dungeons and Dragons, with something like five editions, plus supplements, settings, and net books. Haven't counted all of the magicks available out there, but I wouldn't be surprised if there weren't something like a few thousand of them. In Mythus for Dangerous Journeys there are some 236 effects listed, and they don't all have to be limited to just one casting. For there are probably as many ways to curse as there are magicians.I wouldn't be surprised if sometime in the future there could be around 20,000 or more castings to choose from.
Now consider just what those effects could be used for, and keep in mind that magick in an adventure setting doesn't have to be restricted to just one activity. That's my point in this series, that it is not just the Wizard Tensor who gets to use his famous floating disc, but construction crews around the world.
Now consider how magick could be used in a hospital. To relieve pain, knit together bones and tissue, ease child birth, even raise the dead and regenerate limbs.
Then consider the various medications, mundane and magickal, used in a hospital setting and how they could be abused. Security is a big part of medical care, for while the black lotus say can have beneficial effects wisely used, misuse can be fatal.
And never forget how useful the magick of divination can be. It can make diagnosis much easier, and allow a doctor a more honest look at how a treatment or therapy is working.
As for an architect's office, having reliable information regarding a site and its local conditions can make the job of designing a building a lot easier. Just think about where you work and what you do for a living and soon you should be able to devise a lot of ways in which magick can make your life a lot easier.
In chapter 5 we'll have a look at a trademan's places, with an emphasis on the stable.
