However, this does not mean citizens are free to use magic wherever and however they want.
  
-accidental ​magic +The use of magic is so common on the Manta Carlos Islands that it is difficult to find any area that is truly untouched by the power. Small charms and enchantments on businesses are common; rather than electric automated doors, a door may be spelled to open and close automatically when an individual approaches. In restaurants,​ napkins may fold themselves and dishes might wash themselves. House cleaners might utilize magic to spell a window to proper cleanliness. 
-destruction of property + 
-permits ​for large magical acts+However, the use of these services tends to be rather expensive. While magic users are common on the academy, their work is not to be taken lightly. A business that has a resident spell caster on staff compensates them well for their powers. 
 + 
 +In general, small acts of every day magic or passive magic ability are free for inhabitants to use as needed. However, large acts of magic or magic that risks the destruction of property ​or the endangerment of citizens may require a permit, special permission, or unauthorized uses may result in a fine for the caster. Additionally,​ while it is not illegal, many businesses have a policy asking individuals to refrain from using magic indoors. 
 + 
 +===== Laws on Magic===== 
 +  * It is forbidden ​for an individual to destroy public or private property through the use of magic. The consequences for destruction depend on the amount, severity, and intent of the damage. Accidental damage is treated lighter than the use of magic with the intent to harm or damage property, but this can be difficult to prove. The individual who damages property is expected to repair or compensate the property owner. Some insurance agencies provide repairs for minimal costs to individuals whose property has been damaged by accidental magic. Individuals who cannot compensate due to financial, health, or other reasons typically complete public services. 
 + 
 +  *  It is forbidden to raise an individual from the dead using any form of magic (including necromancy and summoning magic) if this individual has a DNR (Do not Revive) clause in their will. 
 + 
 + 
 +  * It is forbidden to spell an unknowing individual with the intent to take away their consent. This includes, but is not limited to, turning a person into an item/​object/​nonspeaking animal, removing their power of speech, limiting their power of speech 
 + 
 + 
 +  * Businesses are forbidden from selling magical items without alerting the buyer that the item is magical. A business must use every method in their power to ascertain that the item is magical. Despite this rule, the city is aware that it is impossible for all magical items to be identified. They are more concerned with the regulation of cursed items than the accidental sale of a lucky rabbit foot. 
 + 
 + 
 +  * The use of necromancy within cemetery grounds is strictly forbidden unless a proper permit has been applied for. 
 + 
 + 
 +  * The summoning of entities by an unlicensed spellcaster or in a non designated area may result in heavy fines. 
 + 
 +===== Permits for Magic===== 
 +Some magical acts may require a permit from the city. Generally, if the magical act may cause harm or destruction to the individuals around them, the city wants to make sure that all proper safety procedures are followed and that the spellcaster is competent to practice magic. 
 + 
 +Some forms of magic, such as the summononing of demons, ghosts, familiars, or other entities with the intention to gain anything other than information may require a permit and the supervision of an experienced spellcaster. However, this rule is very difficult to enforce and as such very little regulation surrounds it. 
 + 
 +===== Public Opinion of Magic===== 
 +Magic is so common place on the Manta Carlos Islands that many public opinions relate more to the specific use of magic over the use of magic itself. 
 + 
 +The public seems to frown upon individuals who use large, flashy forms of magic or practice magic in the streets. In the academy, where the use and practice of magic is expected, students are generally recommended to practice in classrooms or designated areas. 
 + 
 +While it is not illegal, using or practicing magic while under the influence of alcohol or other mind altering substances is generally frowned upon. 
 + 
 +Love magic has an interesting and controversial public opinion. Some argue that all love magic should be banned due to its risk of decreasing consent, while others argue that banning all love magic when only a small portion of it may affect consent is unlawful. As such, love magic is highly controversial.
