Since magick effect energy of things, not physical as much, tho i know it effects it slightly considering weapons are capable of harming at range such as knives. but i see all theses "grow this" or "flying spells" i don't think they're real, considering all magick is is altering the energy via shaping it to your will, asking help from stronger beings and so on.
if you were to physically alter your self, i see it as more dangerous than awesome. i know slightly considering I'm a "crafter" (i don't know any technical terms, so i use guessed names. i only have instinct) i took out the energy of my body and replaced it with basically magic item enchantment instead.
that took a huge toll, but trying to physically alter is a horrible idea to me, considering your body is so use to human parts...and if it suddenly had cat ears or wings, bad things like: social outcast (people are bastards vs new things most of the time) and your body would probably fail hardcore because suddenly new body parts are there they don't know how to handle...
am i wrong?
