Earth magic can:
- Manipulate earth
- Shield against magical effects
The primary uses of Earth magic are construction and demolitions. An Earth mage can build a shelter from nothing but mud and rock, or find the weak point that will bring a whole tower down. A skilled Earth mage can turn a handful of dust into a shield, and grit into a devastating weapon.
On a more esoteric level, Earth mages can ground magical effects. Earth magic is frequently built into the walls of a magician’s tower to protect the inhabitants against external magic.
Earth mages are more likely to be male.
