Why would you not want to read Negima? Ken Akamatsu is one of the best mangaka that ever existed.

Horrible thing: "SCRREEEEEEE"

Tank: [currently has a horrible thing pounding their shield] "Damn this thing has so many resistances! Use lightning magic on it quick, I can only hold it so long!"

Wizard: "Ok gimmie a moment" [wizard begins leafing through some paper]

Horrible thing: "I SAID SCRREEEEEEEE BITCH" [horrible thing becomes even further enraged]

Wizard: "This shall do it!" [Pulls out a piece of paper before squinting at it]

Tank: [The horrible thing rips shield from grasp] "Thank ((insert appropriate deity here)) for that!"

Wizard: "whose handwriting is this? I cant tell if this is a T or a J"

Tank: "Just cast the spell, I cant hol-" [screams in agony as Horrible thing sinks horrible claws in]

Wizard: "Alright I got it" [holds price of paper out infront of face and begins chanting] "oh great lightning spir-"
[Drowned out by the sound of metal being rended followed by some wet crunching noises, gurgling sounds and wet slapping sounds]
"show us your fury and-"
[The piece of paper is hit by something large, roundish and covered in a thick dark red liquid and knocked from wizards hands both objects falling pretty much at his feet]
"I'm trying to cast a spell here!"

Horrible thing: "SCREEEEE?" [Helpfuly picks up piece of, now blood stained paper and hands it to the wizard]

Wizard: "oh thank you!" [Looks around for a moment] "wheres the tank?"

Horrible thing: "SCREEEEEEE" [points patiently at the large, roundish object covered in dark red liquid at wizards feed]

Wizard: [looks down] "ah that's unfortunate, and where is the tanks body?"

Horrible thing: [Points at several locations close by where indistinct twisted objects covered in dark red liquid lay]

Wizard: "I dont suppose you want to go call this a day and go get a coffee together do you"

Horrible thing: "SCREEEEE" [shakes head]

Wizard: "worth a try" [closes eyes]

[Sounds of a wizard being introduced to forbidden yoga]

instead of memorizing thousands of spells , i think they should just write down a few important spells to some papers , and then just search for the correct spells , depending on the current situations .

MC does seem kinda useless though... no power at all lol. Just uses his head a bit on a newb party?

Useless my ass, he's a great fit for this party. Not every party member needs to engage in combat to be useful, he's fulfilling one of the primary roles of a rogue while also being able to make things like that bag for them and do basic field repairs of things. They might need two or three other people to cover all of that and also help in combat, which means splitting the rewards with even more people. Now toss in him covering for the weakness of the strongest person in their party, and he's even more valuable to them.

There would probably also be a lot of problems from both the development of mankind and religious perspectives for making everyone "soulless". There's also the whole instinctively feeling hostile to them thing. Even if it was practical, trying would probably be labeled heresy.

@Meridis I can understand that viewpoint, but I do like me an overcoming the "naturally powered with my own gifts" type of story; being a Batman and Imperial Guard Soldier, fan and all. Like Ciaphas Cain, HERO OF THE IMPERIUM.

Also, I'm pretty sure if the Imperium really wanted to save themselves they'd breed everyone to be Blanks, that way they actively ignore, destroy, and ward off the warp entities and races heavy in psyonics; but I doubt that will ever happen. Not that it mattered, being better against Chaos, Orks, and Tyranids just means they'll be wiped out by Necrons eventually, probably.

Yea, I actually am making that assumption. I just have a personal distaste for setups that define what someone can do by birth. I'm also assuming that that is the "talent" issue that I mentioned. That is, that a lack of understanding of how to teach it gives the appearance of an inborn ability, or lack there of, to do it. Most everything turned out that way and, with sufficient development n education, anything that isn't a physical trait can be taught. If it really is based on some "organ" or something you just have to be born with, it would forever put a cap on magic and make everything I said impossible.

Like I said, I hate the idea that someone would be barred from it just because they didn't hit the genetic lottery and will assume that it's possible to learn it until they specifically mention an actual "organ" that most people aren't born with. Fortunately, that's typically NOT the case in traditional fantasy rpgs. For example, only the Sorcerer in D&D needs to be born with their magic. Wizards and Warlocks study theirs.

as for psykers...their a bit of both sides and weird. It starts as a genetic mutation and becomes more and more common with the ultimate evolution of mankind supposing to be like the Emperor, powerful psykers. Then add the use of genetic manipulation and how all of the imperium's forces have been genetically modified and you get a case where they have developed to the point where they could make the species all mages, the whole species becoming mages is the natural course of their development, and the only thing holding them back is that they can't train everyone to be disciplined enough to use those powers safely all while skill being a case where you have to be born a mage.

I'd talk more about why mages would pick robes, because the thing some say about easy to move in definitely aint true for robes.
Few types of clothing or armor for that matter are as troublesome when it comes to movement when compared to robes.
(If you think otherwise I suggest you try wear a full robe and try move around, make various gestures and so on.)

Only guess would be the part about robes being pretty much a single piece covering the entire body and that detail might be somehow relevant for protective magic.

@Meridis Aren't you assuming that magic can be learned by anyone? Like, its pointless to set up a school for teaching people to be double jointed; its not a learn-able skill. Sure you could teach already double jointed people to use the ability better, but you couldn't teach the actual ability.

A public school for Jedi and Sith would be pointless as the none force sensitive people would just sit there not being able to do anything.
Or a Psyker public school, everyone would be going insane, devolving into mutants, and accidentally calling deamons into the world, but only like 2% of the class would actually be causing it.

That's what I usually think of as the traditional fantasy setup; you either have magic from birth or you don't.
