Magic, a thing we've all thought deeply about. Here are my thoughts.
Illusion, Summoning (transporting, forming), Changing, Elements (earth, fire, water, air), Energy (light, dark, order, chaos), Nature (animal, plant, life), Psychic (self, others), Defensive, Chant/oath
Eight natural magics, each of these "branches" is used at will with no need for words. These eight magics lie in a circle surrounding the ninth. I arrange them my way, I am sure you will arrange them another. I have thought long and hard and believe these eight branches to contain the whole of magic.
It is my belief that we are each born with one magic for us to control. The two directly next to them on our circles are the next easiest to command, requiring a bit of focus. While those on the far side are extremely difficult to access. Normally the far side magics require vocal activation and intense concentration.
The Ninth Magic, Chant or Oath, lies in the center and grants access to the others. Those who have "lost" their natural magic can still make use of the ninth.
I dare an agnostic to prove he or she exists.
