Magic is drawn from an alternate dimension and used to alter reality in the world around you. It generally involves three steps. The first is tapping into this other realm and drawing energy from it into your body. This is a slow, arduous process that cannot be rushed. Every spell has its own time f...

Can this change in human biology help justify a matriarchy?

In my research I came across a culture that believed women were the ones to pass on their genes to offspring. Men however, didn't pass on their genes, but their spirit.
