8.2.6 The Sciomancers
With the destruction of the Magi guild, there were those remnants who would band together, forming a powerful collective of Mages drawn closer by the dissolving of their former home. Stricken of their powers over Water and Fire, these Sciomancers were gifted with a much darker realm to call upon, that of the Shadow. Through the skill of Sciomancy, these Shadow Mages harness the raw fury of the elements to lash Air, Earth, and Shadow into a destructive force of elemental might. Though not all of their abilities result in destruction, access to the realm of Shadow has granted them a wide variety of spells, the secrets of such are known only to those within their collective. As their counterparts on the opposite side of the coin, the Sciomancers retain their control over Crystalism, using the various shapes to create powerful vibrations within the earth. These vibrations can cause a multitude of adverse effects to the physical and mental aspects of their foes. Along with Crystalism, they hold power over the secret of Enchantment, infusing items with the wonders of the elements. Considering themselves enhanced rather than crippled by the loss of the other elements, the Sciomancers are a force to be respected and woe to those who would cross their path.
