Passive

[P] Chronicle: Rather than relying on allies and momentum for powerful effect, the Magus builds off of the very spells they cast. Each Spell cast by a Magus is one of two types, and marked as such: a [C] Syllable, which are the most common, or a [E] Termination. Anytime the Magus cast a Syllable Spell, record the name of the Spell in the Chronicle.
When the Magus casts a Termination Spell, they may consume any number of syllables currently recorded in the Chronicle in order to power the spell up in different ways, noted on each termination spell itself. Sometimes a Termination Spell with have a syllable listed for Stressing - when this happened, pick only a single syllable used to Stress and gain an additional benefit from.
Each Syllable can only be recorded into the chronicle once, but you retain them all from battle to battle - it's never emptied without the Magus doing so themself.

List of all possible syllables: AUM, BIS, FOEN, GAN, GED, LOD, NIX, SUUF, TOX, UQ, UX, YUF, ZID.
