World Creation and Laws on Magic Systems

Brandon Sanderson wrote up something interesting on this subject.

It reminds me of the various ways the powers work in Hunter X Hunter or Naruto. With my favorites being those systems with a natural cause and effect, with logical consequences. With my least favorites being powers that don’t seem to cost anything nor do they have a rational component to them (Bleach flying around). It’s sort of like saying, if you use chi you can do amazing things. But the answer to “why” that is, is never dealt with.
