This is very general, and I'm afraid it doesn't really fit into any one category

So, this popped up in my Reddit feed, and it appears that the concept of mana comes from Pacific Islanders, where it literally meant "personal power".

I know this isn't a very good source, but if the site ever decides to do something over classic D&D style games or something else where mana started showing up, it could be worth looking into.

Anyone got any input on this?

That's a tough one. Maybe the powers that be can create a General Trivia" or something for stuff like this.
Or, do you think you can narrow it down to the first game mana appeared in? Dungeons and Dragons, maybe?

Maybe, but D&D isn't really a video game.

Throw it under Fable, then. Have we had a video on that series, yet?

Still too general and it'd probably be bad to attribute it to Fable specifically. Maybe something for if we have another religious influence video.
