Associations

Primal magic is fundamental to most fey beings, and some fey creatures will barter primal magic powers as abilities in exchange for mundane or esoteric details or abilities from the recipient, such as their ability to see the moon or a part of their name.[2]

Primal magic is also strongly associated with most gnomes,[3][4] especially those who live in the First World[5] and Feychild gnomes.[6]

It is also related to elemental abilities, such as the ability of certain dwarves to emanate with elemental energies.[7]

On Golarion

Dance is incorporated in magical studies at the Magaambya.

The Green Faith is strongly associated with primal magic,[8] as are most druids, fey, and clerics of natural deities.[citation needed]

It is a component of some Erutaki magic, such as tupilaq fetishes,[9] and of Mualijae and wildborn magic.[10]

Instructors at the Magaambya teach primal magic, and especially novel methods of combining it with arcane magic[11] in the form of halcyon magic.[12][13] Primal magic is also deployed by Magaambyan Rain-Scribes[14][15] and Tempest-Sun mages.[16]

Users of primal magic are welcomed as intermediaries between humans and fey in the Fangwood.[17]

Applications

Certain primal magic rituals produce leshies[18] who can grow to innately wield it.[19]
