“Craft Magic” refers to magical talent which is inherent to the user, and can be tapped only through the use of some non-magical skill or craft. Craft mages are born with their talents; one cannot become a craft mage later in life.
Most craft mages show their talent by puberty, and they are usually trained as soon as possible; an untrained craft mage can be damaging to themselves, and those around them.

Book learning is of limited use to a craft mage.Examples of Skills or Crafts through which Magic may be Channeled:
