Magic: Sigils

Other (objects, etc.) concept

The first video game about Magic: Sigils was released in 1992.

Electronic Arts, Deep Silver and JoWood Productions has published most of these games

Another old and commonly perpetuated form of magic where sigils of one sort or another hold power (commonly "runes"). Most prevalent example is circles with a swathe of odd symbols inscribed in them (e.g. a summoning circle). Pentagram/pentagon with a circle touching the five points is also common, though equally commonly tied to demon worship.

Alone this has little meaning.
