Butcher using the Lore of the Great Maw

The Lore of the Great Maw is the magic of the Ogre Kingdoms. [1a]

It is also known as Corpomancy, Gastromancy, Gut Magic, Shamanic Victuals, Thaumaphagy and is used mainly by Butchers. [1a][3a]

Unlike most magic, Gut Magic requires ingredients and a Butcher without the proper ingredients may not work Gut Magic. [3a]
