Spells are something, from a writer's standpoint, I'm having the most difficulty with. The biggest question is how powerful to make them. The world that I'm creating has a major limitation in communication and transportation over long distances. Most high-magic worlds would make such problems trivial. So overall I'm thinking mid-level to low magical power. Items in italics are still being decided on and are the most likely to change.62Please respect copyright.PENANAGosXBubfx5

Here are the basics that I have figured out:copyright protection58PENANASfDUnM0uxe

Magical energy can only be created organically, and can only be controlled by a creature of a dogs intelligence or greater. The greater the intelligence the greater the spells they can create.copyright protection58PENANAt66nEw78Hh

Spells must be concentrated on to maintain itself. Break concentration spells simply diffuse in the form of a different form of energy. (Except Glyphs, see notes)62Please respect copyright.PENANAFeUrK1fzqj

Conservation of Mass and Energy cannot be altered through magic. Mass can be made into energy however, and energy can be made into mass. In the case of the former this is very energy intensive on the part of the mage, and the energy created cannot be magic energy (aka you can't turn a rock into magical power to recharge yourself). Magic energy can be converted to a solid object, but when the spell is broken the object will return to energy. Again this will not be magical energy. Most likely it'll be heat and light.62Please respect copyright.PENANAkhyXLyRT1a

Transmutation of solids is possible as well, but also will revert to it's original molecular makeup when the spell ends. These spells take significantly less energy, but a far greater amount of concentration. 62Please respect copyright.PENANA9IzBFa6QqD

Transmutation of energy is possible as well, but normally its more efficient to simply convert the casters own energy than to use their energy to convert another energy source into a third energy source. 62Please respect copyright.PENANAV6SQxCRNch

Non-physical magics are the least energy consumptive. This would include telepathy, precognition, illusions. The further distant (Physically as well as temporally) the greater the cost at an exponential rate.62Please respect copyright.PENANA7wzFulemef

Magics that never leave the body are the second least consumptive of magic, such as self-healing, and physical boosts to strength and stamina.copyright protection58PENANAVlNh2jifWr

People have aptitudes towards certain schools of magic. While not completely understood how, there is a psychological component on which spells a person is most suited for. A very compassionate person, for example, may have a greater aptitude towards healing magic. A sadist may also have this aptitude however.copyright protection58PENANAbRDKgCtp9d

Permanent changes that do not require magic to maintain will stay after a spell is over. A good example would be making a sculpture, though in this case the original mass used could not have originated from energy. Physical alterations are possible, like a nose job, however unless the genes themselves are altered (Which is possible, but extremely difficult) most changes will revert over time naturally. (Those with the aptitude and power, or the money to higher one, are usually very beautiful). Just as it is with chimera physical alterations (and healing) is normally extremely painful and best done while unconscious.62Please respect copyright.PENANAwnX5ZDg5tG

Permanent or long lasting spells, like curses or wards are not possible without a continuous form of power.62Please respect copyright.PENANAIpNBfke78q

Magical energy is grounded out if it hits metal (Notably iron) that is properly grounded to the earth. Magical attacks that become something non-magical by the time it hits the metal are not groundable (example: Fireballs). Psionic attacks are groundable. Any form of remote viewing is possible. A location spell would be grounded out, but only if the majority of the body is encased in metal. 62Please respect copyright.PENANApfXYUrj9Nx
