This chapter takes a look at hedge magic, or natural magic as it is more politely called. Despite the name, hedge magic does not involve manipulating the threads of magic and a practitioner does not require an Arcane Background. However, they must take a Professional Edge (see page 27) in order to learn one of the various arts. A hero can have the Hedge Magic Edge and an Arcane Background simultaneously.
Hedge Magic & the Magic Rules: Unlike true magic, which is detailed in the next chapter, hedge magic is not subject to any form of backlash or the Hellfrost effect.
Likewise, devices created using these arts cannot be dispelled or negated.
