(Fantasy set in an unspecified locale. A scientific approach to magic would demand that it have a power source somewhere—a source governed by the Law of Conservation of Mass / Energy. But that would generate questions about where the energy comes from, and why it should take either special rituals or special abilities to tap into it. If the source possessed a dynamic character that went beyond passive storage of potential, it might do things on its own from time to time...and how likely would men be to attribute such occurrences to a human will?)
