With alchemy based magic, or alcemagia (the c is pronounced as a k), the spell does not automatically activate, it must be applied manually, and generally by someone who knows how it works. Generally they have a heavy reliance on physical constructs, and the technology of the available tools dictates how the spell behaves. Examples include a potion that can be 'pierced' to react mana with light-generating moieta; or a throwing potion that explodes into flame upon impact; or a hand-gun that can be used to fire freezing pellets. It is the most primitive casting method, both the earliest method invented and the one most likely used by new sects. Alchemic magic can hardly be considered spells as they are just too crude; hence, many commoners don’t think that it is related to magic at all.
