Aye, I think most of the problems with magic is simply having it get out of hand energy wise. But you won't summon a big fiery vortex if you mispronounce a word!  Grin

Nope! But if you run a major ritual and don't properly ground afterwards, you will feel a little loopy for a few hours. Grin

Another thing is that, in chaos magic you can make up gibberish for a spell or ritual and if you REALLY believe in it, it will usually work, or at least that's the theory behind chaotic magic.

I haven't read into it for a few years, but one of the things that originally drew me to chaos magic was the idea that belief is just as important a tool as anything else. I'm a big fan of (part of) reality being shaped by subjectivity, and if I feel something is real, or true, then for me it is, and I act on it.

As for the OP's response, I haven't really had any blatant backfires or anything. But I truthfully don't really mess with magic all that often. I tend to be an armchair magician, (or witch lol). I know, I am bad.

Me too! That's been changing recently, but I'm super lazy and lax about practicing, heh.
