Lore of Beasts

The Lore of Beasts, also known as Amber Magic, refers to a class of magic and spells that show the dominant colour and hold the elemental characteristics of the Realm of Ghur, the realm of beasts.[1][3a] The magic of Ghur is wild and ravenous. It stalks through humid vales and strikes from hidden caves. It is the strength of predators and the cunning of prey. It is a primal magic, holding the secrets of the wilds and beasts; feral and animalistic in form, all the better to join or escape the hunt.[3a]

While present in the Realm of Ghur, some spells in this lore become intuitively known to wizards in addition to their other spells.[1][2]
