Magic, part 2

Well, this is one of the few promises I keep on this blog. Wouldn't want to talk about the wedding I went to last night because many many others would do the same anyway, nothing new...

It took about 1200 years before they re-emerged as illusionists, performing tricks without any supernatural powers whatsoever. Eventually, they became entertainers too.
