    I. Introduction
    Well, while playing through the game I noticed that there was a lack of a
    definitive magic guide; only a blue magic chart.  So, this faq is intended
    to provide a complete guide for all lack, White, Time, and Summon magic.
    For each spell I give a description of what it does, plus how and where you
    can obtain it.  Note: spells in each section are listed by the order you can
    get them, not by the order they appear on the magic menu screen.  Here
    goes...
