Magic is common and readily available. To this end there are certain aspects to Low Fantasy:

  • Magic is common and evenly distributed in the world rather then being concentrated in certain places, people, or beings.
  • The effects of Magic are predictable and knowable.
  • Magic is simply another tool people use. (Low Magic is a very subdued version of this)

Generally, Low Fantasy leans toward realistic fiction rather than to myth.

Warcraft is an example of a Low Fantasy, Low and High Magic setting as is the various Merlin realties (Merlin-1, Merlin-2, Merlin-3)
