Magic in the Eighth Realm of the Clouded Horizons series takes many different forms and disciplines, from offensive elemental magic to defensive healing magic. So far, there are a total of eight known disciplines, but more potentially exist that have simply not been discovered yet.

Basics of Magic

Magic in the Eighth Realm is fueled by Mana, the magical energy that flows through each and every being in the realm. Some beings, such as Humes, have comparatively little, while Erudite and Ancient-level beings possess vast stores of Mana naturally. This energy is channeled by the user and then focused into the spell of their choosing when they cast, discharging the Mana in a form consistent with the spell and the user's desire. For example, Mana channeled into a Fire-element spell could take the form of a bolt, orb, or cloud of fire, while a Water-element spell could be formed into a slow stream or a large wave of water. The more practice one has with controlling their Mana, the more impressive and tightly-controlled the effects become; those who are extremely proficient with using their Mana rarely waste any at all when using spells, and can create intricate effects with ease, even learning to combine multiple spells for varied and powerful effect.

All magic is classified in several ways; every magical spell is innately classified with the Spell superclass, but also fall into one of the following subcategories:

  • Alchemy
  • Binding Ritual
  • Enchantment
  • Glyph
  • Hex
  • Phantasm
  • Symbol
  • Ward
  • Weapon Spell

In addition, each spell has one or more of the following elements attached to it:

  • Fire
  • Ice
  • Lightning
  • Water
  • Wind
  • Earth
  • Holy
  • Dark

These elements have fundamental balances between them, with each element being strong to some elements and weak to others.
