The beginning of a mysterious new series, and an introduction to the always strange, sometimes beautiful, but mostly terrifying universe of MagiCats!
Experience the magical world of Amait in this lighthearted slice-of-life! Feel the aching pangs of a distant and unspoken love in this Dostoevskyan dramedy! Put on a brave face to hide the quiet desperation of a childhood friend-turned-terrorist's impending death!
Rousalie had the good fortune to be born a black-furred molly of ignoble standing. In the world of Amait, this awarded her the privilege of being forced into the Imperial School of Thaumaturgy, learning low magic and becoming a witch in service to the Holy Empire of Amait. Now an adult, she has been assigned for over a year to the thirteenth canton of Ikshum, an Imperial City in the snowy, forested North of the world. Healing the sick, comforting the distressed, exorcising demons and settling small legal claims are just some of her responsibilities. And, for a big-hearted molly like Rousalie, it can be a very hard job to be a witch. But she's never let it get her down.
Today, however, will put Rousalie to the test.
After many years of hard work and dedication to the study of magic, Rousalie has achieved a rare feat in the history of the Empire: total completion of the Scholasticate's curriculum in magic and mysticism.
She wasn't allowed to learn the higher mysteries of philosophy and theurgy, and yet she possesses a curious knowledge of those and other subjects forbidden to witches.
Cyprian the Apostate
The cat who sold the world, and the Deuteragonist of Rousalie and the Infinite Sadness.
An autistic savant and master magician, Cyprian’s greatest accomplishment is his comprehension of the magic of the Epistemes, but he considers his real talent to lie in magical dueling. Most know him, though, as the leader of a short-lived rebellion who now cowers in a ruined castle waiting to be killed.
Having studied the great and charismatic leaders of yesteryear, Cyprian has acquired an excellent, almost preternatural sociality -- but when Rousalie looks at him, she still sees the innocent, paw-flapping kitten she always knew.
- A deeply complex world that uses cute cats and the Western and Eastern magical traditions to plumb the depths of the feline condition!
- A puzzle-like combat system based on the magic and mysticism of the Stella Matutina, Argentum Astrum, Typhonians, Rosicrucians, Martinists, Kabbalists, Merkavahists, Hermetists, Alchemists, Sufis, Onmyōji, Neoplatonists, Pythagoreans, Orphics, Dionysians, Serapis-worshipers, Greeks, Egyptians, Assyrians et al.
- A suite of original music!
