Spells? In Marathon? Sure. Arthur C Clarke wrote “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” So go for it; they're fun and that's the point o the exercise.

Marathon: Istoria is a single-player RPG scenario set in the Marathon universe and designed for the Aleph One engine. It pushes the engine to its limits by using advanced character progression, combat, and storytelling.

Customize your character by choosing from seven different player classes, each with their own unique active and passive abilities. Decide which conventional weapons you want to specialize in, and make use of a brand new arsenal of spells. Explore Istoria while discovering its secrets and how you fit in the world through a combination of terminals and communicating with the recently deceased. Istoria features an original soundtrack by Jon Irons.

NOTE: the "microphone" key in Aleph One has recently been changed to the "aux trigger" key, which is important to know for Istoria.
