Hi there. Well the starting point in magic is pretty much same as everywhere else, basics. Aside from that you can browse through site forums, and do some history research about the craft in general. There are many paths in magic so you will be able to easily find where it is that you belong, so to say. Just be aware of various people around the site claiming they are vampires, demons, demi gods, gods or similar things. Things like that physically dont exist, which is also a good lesson to keep in mind, magic can not beat the laws of physics. If there is something more you would like to know send a message to me or any member of the site. Most of the people around are friendly and willing to help new members :)
Welcome to Spells of Magic, I am glad that you feel like you belong on SoM, this site holds a great deal of information, but also hold false information as well. You must be able to tell the difference between misleadning information and helpful information, most do this by their gut, if it feels to good to be true, it probably is. I personally would start off getting to now the site itself, there is a lot of helpful information around the site based new members. Then I would probably start by reading a few of the most recommened forum posts;

Gaining a grasp of the "training-wheels" of magic will help things go more smooth, understand to seperate fanstasy from reality is one of the most important objects to pass. There is a lot of content on here that promises impossible abilities, things that claim to change the physical balance of this realm, do not believe them, they are false and do waste your time.
