Magic function according to six discreet set of rules. The division of these rules and their associated abilities define what are essentially the schools of magic in Valdoro.
First there is Ichoric magic, known as blood magic to humanoids. It concerns itself with power that comes from within.
Then there is Necrotic magic. It has the reputation of being Necromancy and its counterspells. In actuality, while it can be used to bind will and lifeforce to dead things to reanimate them, it is much more than that. It is the art of binding and breaking bonds. It is the art of control.
