The School of Thaumaturgy is one of the six avenues of magical study. This School concentrates on exposing or manipulating known forces and objects within their natural laws. It is evident in spells like Levitation and Detection. No Thaumaturgical spell can permanently change the appearance or structure of a force or object. Buying, creating, and casting spells of alteration [sic] are less expensive for mages skilled in this path.

Thaumaturgy's governing attribute is Willpower. The skill is checked whenever you cast a spell from the Thaumaturgy School of Magic.
