Greenflower was first Archmage of Life at Ximax, so-called even though the higher levels of lifemagic had been lost since shortly after the fall of Birn. She felt that her people would find use for a similar system of magic levels to designate the abilities theoretically available to a Redbark. The following system took firm hold, both in Ximax and the Seven Schools, as well as among Brownies everywhere, and has been used ever since.

And you needed my help why? Measures up to my standards, except I have Greenflower as a man in the Wizardleaf entry.

Question: (well, technically several)

I read through both the relevent parts of this string as well as the 'general entry' string. I'm not seeing a large distinction being made between the way elven mages do magic and the way human mages do magic. I *did* note the bit about elves being more inclined toward the element of wind.

I particularly like the following thought that was thrown out by Atimindor "Magic is everywhere. Magic is the life's energy in general. Its source is everywhere and nowhere, its the aura of things. I'd interpret the web as a dense accumulation of this magic. We should find an elven word for this magic. Humans produce this aura artificially by manipulating other auras with ingredients and other means to support this (without really knowing that they transform this aura), while elves know about this energy and use the magic naturally in everyday life."

Now, I understand that this was an opinion in a discussion, and therefore not really a set doctrine. However, I personally like this outlook on how elves relate to magic...and I think there would be differences in how elves and humans do magic. Yes? No?

Has this already been covered in another forum or topic that I missed? If so, please tell me where I might track this down. If not, would someone mind discussing this with me here?

Each of the four races are inclined toward their elements. As for the elves, they don't cast different magic than humans, Wizardly magic is all the same, but they may cast it differently. I don't think the subject of how different races cast magic has really come up.

Not to be a pest, but I just want to make sure that what I would like to do with my character is in keeping with all guidelines concerning Santharian magic. Therefore, I humbly request approval for the following explanation on my character sheet. It is short and I hope simple and to the point. However, if more elaboration is called for, I can provide that as well:

"Kythreetl's magic manipulates the aura through the use of song and music, an elven variation of the materials and words used by human mages. The majority of her spells are equivalent to novitiate level magic, while a few might be considered initiate level in difficulty. All use Wind or a combination of Wind with another element. "

Additionally, I listed on my character sheet some specific effects I thought were reasonable. I can include those here for review if needed.

Sounds fine to me. But you do need to understand that not all humans use materials and words, and not all elves cast magic the same way either. Take Weavers, for example, any race can be a Weaver, but they don't cast magic in the same way any other race.
