Magic in Avendar

Varied sources of mystical power exist throughout the world. Druids commune with and draw power from natural surroundings, and bards sing and play magical music that sways the heart and mind. But it is the scholars of magic who delve deepest into the arcane arts in Avendar.

The forces of magic in Avendar were long ago sundered by a great elemental catastrophe, which resulted in the aether being split into its elemental components. Likewise, scholars (as well as templars, warriors whose traditions combine skill at arms with magic) must now focus their attention on the elements to gain magical power. To do this, scholars choose a major and minor school of influence in a given element. Scholars may choose the major and minor school to coincide, and thereby gain access to greater spells.

Various elemental forces also resonate with given moral alignment, and scholars of a given element cannot choose an major or minor sphere directly opposed to their ethos.

Remnants of ancient magic are said to still reside in the realms, but such matters are seldom discussed by orthodox scholars and remain by and large a study given over to less official forms of magical inquiry.
