Soleil Wiki

Magic is the study and manipulation of the energy that flows through all organic and inorganic matter.

In the world of Soleil, anyone can learn magic, but few truly master it. Magic requires a great deal of training to become proficient, although there are those who possess great natural ability. It is also important to note that different Races can wield magic to different degrees. As a result, there are far less Orc magicians than Elf magicians.

Magic is implemented through skills.

The study of magic is split up into antipodal schools. Each school in the pair counters the other.

  • Sacred and Profane
  • Augmentation and Debilitation
  • Insight and Illusion

Should two practitioners of opposite schools meet in combat, success is determined by the skill of the caster. For example, a powerful Insight magician will easily see through a novice Illusionist's deceptions. Likewise, a skilled Debilitation magician will weaken a target faster than a less skilled Augmentation magician can strengthen it. Without the appropriate counter school, it is impossible to reverse the effects of a school.

Each school utilises magical force in different ways. As a result, each school requires different training and knowledge. It is possible for someone to learn two or more schools, however this will force a limit upon the levels at which the magic can be used. Therefore it is recommended that magicians specialise in a single school.
