    Basis of Magic:

    Mana Pool:
    Every living being has a pool of mana that resides within their soul. However, only a very select few are born with the accessibility to this pool to control the formless mana and change it into the arcane properties it is capable of. The mana pool is notably small and weak at birth though with training it can grow and, in turn, the person’s magical prowess.

    Casting Magic:
    All mana is formless and has no physical property outside of the soul. People who are capable of casting magic can do so in a plethora of ways. The act of casting has many different forms and names, however, most trained magicians will only have access to one form of magic, though at a stronger potency than what it originally was. Casting magic is specifically done by focusing on one’s pool of mana and releasing it out of the body.

    Types of Magic:
    There are many forms of magic, so many that each category holds within it a plethora of subcategories. New forms of magic are still being found and created to this day and it’s safe to say this will be a common theme in history.

    The following list will consist of the most well-known categories of magic:

    Elemental - Fire, Water, Earth, Air, Lightning, Ice
    Entropy - Necromancy, Mind magic, using mana to cause physical pain, Debilitation,
    Spirit - Golem making, Plant Manipulation, Call on Animals
    Restoration (Healing) - Healing magic, Wards, Defensive Enhancements, Protection from undead, Cleansing
    Heresy/Black magic - Blood Magic, Artifacts, Soul Magic
