The magic in Reiassan parallels the deities. Loosely, it’s divided thus:
Red: War, blood, fire, strength, anger (destruction)
Green: Life, fertility, healing, plants, earth (creation)
Blue: Mind, air, water, breath (chaos)
Very little determined about these so far, but I know:
- Priests & practitioners are often strongest in one area, to which they’re devoted
- To be completely focused on one area, or to be in near-perfect balance of the three, are both rare & considered special
- The area you’re strongest in affects or is affected by you personality/mindset
- Being in a place strong in your area of focus strengthens your magic (i.e., on/in the water, in the forest, in the middle of war (or by a bonfire)
- The magic shapes that particular zone
