Default [Space/Thaumatology] Stargate: Fantasy - Worldbuilding thread

Like most televised science fiction, a lot of the 'science' in the Stargate setting is basically magic, and thinking about that lead me to trying to imagine a fantasy version of the setting, much like Warhammer 40,000 is a Dark SF version of Warhammer Fantasy.

The Stargates become powerful magic Artifacts of the Ancients (probably still interstellar portals, but they could be interdimensional instead, or as well), with the various energy weapons and such being more common magical devices. The Ascended are basically gods or powerful spirits even in the official setting, so no real change there beyond less pretending otherwise, though the Goa'Uld or whatever replaces them should probably be demons or magical monsters pretending to be gods. The Asgard are another matter, since the Norse gods in their own mythology did have an defined end, and were capable of dying, yet were still very much considered gods. They might be the High Elf equivalent, or might be replaced. The Nox are a bit too gentle to fit the faeries or most other fantasy or mythical beings that I'm aware of, but 'powerful, pacifist fae' is an interesting idea. The Jaffa or equivalent might be all one type of modified human as in canon, or might be several varieties.

My plan for the thread is to post various worldbuilding questions and work from the results, so some of the Stargate races and items may be replaced, or dropped entirely. There are a few places I could start, but I'm going with asking about the magic system, as that will determine a lot of the other worldbuilding. The question will be posted in a little bit.
