Some combinations of magic work particularly well together. These are as follows:
- Source and Fate / Death (in combination or separately)
- Air and Water
- Fire and Earth
For reasons that are not fully understood, it is highly unlikely for a mage to develop an affinity for both streams in a common pairing. Instead, mages with complementary magics work in partnership.
Life and Death magic are never used in combination. Mages with those skills say that doing so feels wrong on a magical and spiritual level.
