    Alteration

    A magic skill, depending on Willpower.

    All of the skills related to Willpower are magic ones, since Willpower is what is most needed by Mages and Wizards in order to cast spells successfully. Alteration is no different, and it offers the ability to manipulate and change aspects of the physical worlds as we know them, not merely how they are perceived as in the case of Illusionists. These effects include lengthening the ability to breathe underwater, opening and locking containers at the mage’s touch, raising great barriers for protection purposes.

    Destruction

    A magic skill, depending on Willpower.

    The favoured school for battlemages, devastating and unsympathetic to everything when used, including your allies. This spells are the most effective in battle, inflicting great damage when unleashed, and harming everything surrounding their effect, living and unloving. These spells include elemental damage, such as shock or frost, fireballs, draining and damaging effects and armor disintegration effects.

    Mysticism

    A magic skill, depending on Willpower.

    Some schools of magic are related in the game, such as the ones which deal with manipulating and altering the physical world. The art of mysticism is described as ‘The arcane art which involves directing energy to overcome the limitation of the physical plane’. This school is therefore related to the schools of Illusion and Alteration, but offers different possibilities.

    In simple terms, you can defy most laws of gravity with these spells, which cover levitation, teleportation spells, picking up objects from a distance by telekinesis or absorbing and reflecting back magical energies. This school also includes spells for trapping a creature’s soul in gems.

    Restoration

    A magic skill, depending on Willpower.

    As the name implies, these are spells which are mainly attributes to clerics or healers. You can direct these at yourself, wounded allies or creatures or if you wish, protect them from potentially evil effects, such as curses or hexes. Restoration can also be used as ‘buffs’, or to augment your strength and fortify some Attributes such as Endurance, for a short period of time.
