- Schor: The raw, primordial magic that is at the root of creation. Although it can be sensed by some, it cannot be wielded in this form. The two practical forms of magic, below, are resultant of the Schor but not actually it. If a heating element in a stove gives off heat, and a pot is warmed because of it, and the contents of the pot are cooked because of that heat, then the Schor is the heating element, and the other types of magic are the pot that receives and focuses the heat, while the resulting spell or item is whatever is cooked in the pot.
- Andreleth: Some are able to channel and focus magic from the Schor that can be then imbued into physical items. This is the magic of weapons, armor, and other items and physical artifacts.
- Sheenryla: This is magic gleaned from the Schor and shaped into spell magic.
Per the Fatheyreen, which is a multi-volume history of/philosophy of the Elves, only Elves can wield Sheenryla and Andreleth, while dwarves can learn how to channel Andreleth. Those among the younger races who channel what they claim to be ‘divine’ magic are merely anomalies, likely with latent elf or dwarf blood, who are channeling Sheenryla in a limited fashion. The Fatheyreen, and thus prevailing elf thinking on the subject, still holds that the younger races are simply incapable of wielding magic that has not been created for them.
