All magic is tied to one of the four elements: Air, Earth, Fire and Water.
In Torphalos all four elements are used equally to maintain the balance of the magical energies in the city.
Magic can be used in two different ways, Raw or Embedded, but regardless of the method the user must be trained and have sufficient power to use the magic.
Raw magic is the channelling of an element directly through the caster into an immediate effect. The caster must have trained their body specifically for the raw magic they wish to use.
Embedded magic is where an object has been imbued with specific magical abilities and the caster channels their magical energy into the object to activate its abilities. Embedded magic is more limited and less powerful than raw magic but is less stressful for the caster and can give casters access to abilities they may not be able to use without the object.
