- Sorcery: Also known as the Will and the Word, sorcery is a magic power held by some individuals that let them manipulate the universe around them. A sorcerer only needs to focus their will and state what they want to achieve for it to happen. For example, "Burn" can be used to set an opponent in flames. The only limits to sorcery are the sorcerer's power, imagination, and belief in their own powers. If a sorcerer does not believe his powers will work 100%, their sorcery will fail. Some things like resurrecting people are basically above any sorcerer's reach due to the immense amounts of power required. Additionally, while sorcery can be used to destroy things, it can never be used to unmake anything, even a regular pebble, due to it being forbidden by the universe. If a sorcerer tries to unmake something, they will be the ones unmade.
