Magic is strictly forbidden to all mankind (humans have been given the higher power of technology). Magic is a mysterious source of power given exclusively to mythocreats.
More information on magic can be found in Mythocreat information.
Power Call - 'Coooo-eeee'
When a MythoCreatologist calls for aid by 'Cooo-eeeing', mythocreats (magical creatures) in the vicinity must respond. However, the strength of the mythocreat that answers depends on the level of the MythoCreatologist :
Apprentice MythoCreatologist - Minor mythocreats will answer.
Graduate MythoCreatologist - Medium mythocreats will answer.
Master MythoCreatologist - Major mythocreats will answer.
Grand Master MythoCreatologist - Even spouse and kids will answer.
(Note: When a MythoCreatologist becomes a TreasureHunter - they lose their Power Call.)
All flying birds have been commanded by their respective king and queens (Majestics) to aid and guard every MythoCreatologist at any cost.
When a MythoCreatologist is in the field all the local birds are on the constant lookout for danger and, at the first sign, will immediately warn the MythoCreatologist. Any creature that attacks a MythoCreatologist can expect to be swooped from all directions.
When a MythoCreatologist graduates, they are assigned a bird partner (bird-mate) to help them in their many duties. Their bird mate could be anything from an eagle, hawk, falcon, or if they’re unlucky, a galah (the truth is, just like cricketers, MythoCreatologists don’t like getting a duck and, just like golfers, everyone wants an eagle). However, the choice is made by the Majestic Council.
MythoCreatologists do a large percentage of their communication via the bird-net. Since MythoCreatologists have forgone the use of mobile phones (in the interest of better relations with the mythocreats) the birds have offered to be their messengers. This has actually proven to be a more effective way of communicating because in the middle of nowhere you can never get a signal; however, there is always a bird around.
