* ''VideoGame/RuneScape'' has the "Ancient Magicks" spells. Especially weird because "magic" is usually spelled normally.
** It appears to be that it is just "c" for singular and "ck" for plural, as in magic vs. magicks. It could also just be an archaic spelling, considering that knowledge of the Ancient Magicks was locked away in a pyramid for who knows how many years.

to be that distinguish it is just "c" for singular from the normally-spelled Standard (or Modern) and "ck" for plural, as in Lunar magic vs. magicks. It could also just be an archaic spelling, considering that knowledge of spellbooks, due to the Ancient Magicks was locked away in a spellbook dating back tens of thousands of years, only being released [[SealedBadassInACan from an ancient pyramid for who knows how many years.in the Sixth Age,]] having been virtually unknown in the meantime.

Magick means, in fact, magic. "Magick" is an archaick spelling, dating back to [[YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe Early Modern English]] where it appeared in the worcks of poets such as Edmund Spenser. Creator/AleisterCrowley revived this spelling to add an air of archaism, distinguishing "[[ThisIsReality actual]] [[WrongContextMagic magic"]] from [[StageMagician stage shows]]. {{Wicca}}ns and other Neo-Pagans, influenced by Crowley (to varying degrees), have picked up the Crowleyan spelling. Others use newer idiosyncratick spellings like "magique" and "majik." For whatever reason, this casual approach to spelling seems to have taken off in the mass media, especially things trying to be [[DarkerAndEdgier edgy]]. The constant misspelling of "magic" has been known to drive {{Grammar Nazi}}s up the wall, but it is reckommended you [[MST3KMantra don't worry about it too much]].

* Between "Magyk" (of course), "Flyte", "Physik", and "Queste", the individual titles of the ''Literature/SeptimusHeap'' series seem to have been designed to make a teacher's life that much harder.
** And every misspelled word in the books is in a boldface font.

** Internal consistency was optional before regularized spelling came into vogue, and in fact one of the things done by the people responsible for regularizing spelling was making the spelling reflect the origin of the words. Even if the result did not make that much sense phonetically, and it meant you got silent letters which would make learning to read even harder than before, they felt obliged to spell it rather like it would be spelled in French. Thankfully, later dictionary editors decided to not try to inflict some of the more bizarre ones -- thus why, for example, we use the spelling 'Shinjuku' instead of the (technically) ''official'' transliteration of '[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kunrei-shiki_Romaji Sinzyuku]].'
