Fluff: The nature of the shadowtrolls
#12

Thanks for the great explanation. So, from what I'm reading, there are a few primary forms of magic:
Sorcery - the manipulation of Keraunic energy
Mage magic? (not sure what to call it) - the manipulation of the elements
Runic Magic - Combination of the previous two
Derived Magic - magic drawn from gods or demons (I'm assuming they have an innate magical essence that is fueled by their worshippers?)
Life Magic - the manipulation of the essential life-force of existence
and Necromancy - Corrupted sorcery
Along with a few other possible forms of magic

I think I can probably guess what elemental magic is (at least the basics) and how it works, but I'm not clear on sorcery. From what I can tell the Keraunoi are fundamental principles of the cosmos? Is this like gravity, momentum, entropy, order, etc? Or something else? I'm not really clear on what the Grammata are, except that there... pillars that hold up to cosmos? Is that a good way to put it?

Wisdom ceases to be wisdom when it becomes too proud to weep, too grave to laugh, and too selfish to seek other than itself. - Kahlil Gibran
