Island Magic takes a look at vodoun (voodoo, as it is commonly known) and obeah, a type of folk magic from the Caribbean, with a similar pedigree to voodoo and Santeria. These rules are designed specifically for Pirates of the Spanish Main, but they can work for any game that uses low-level magic focusing on curses and small effects, especially those that take place in the Caribbean or have characters from the West Indies.
More basic information on obeah can be found on Wikipedia.

A "blog" to host material I've made for the Savage Worlds roleplaying game. I recommend anyone interested in the game check out the discussion boards to see the kind of community built around this solid game. Also, download the free Test Drive rules to see what this game is all about.
