like something being forbidden has ever actually stopped people

Well it's also that within the world of my comic, one does not want to go mucking about in the Dark Arts in the first place. It's mentioned several times that it's too dangerous. My go to analogy is: Yes, you CAN stick a fork into an electric socket - but why WOULD you?

I was going to say, in this world isn't all magic forbidden?

There are some benign spells using the "light side" (so to speak) which can help accomplish things otherwise impossible in the world. For example, Talbot's 8 Ball reportedly utilitizes magic, and the assistance to transport the Baía da Lua. Also undoing curses and such. However, the 'Light Arts' are not without risk either, so it's not as if they're widely used. Best to stay away from magic in general, yes.

Personally, and thats only me, I was Always more a fan of the thougt that magic in and on itself is neither light nor dark and that it is the purpose of the user that gives it Color.
For example, Scrying can be used for good or bad stuff.

Very good point, moonwolf. I think for the comic, though, it's in the severity or "level" of the magic which makes it deadly. As in in order to accomplish some things, the 'dark forces' need to come into play (such as the ghosts/entities that haunted Darkfang growing up). But yes, it's all in the intention. Again, it's best to avoid it. :) No one even makes new scryers.
