Magic is powerful, but it is not free. Every spell you cast requires a little bit of your life energy to spark it. Cast enough spells and you will extinguish your very soul in Fates of Ort. This means you need to be strategic when fighting. While balancing the cost of magic with the risk of taking damage from your enemies.
How each spell manifests in the world depends on what divine power you choose to combine it with. For example, the Evoke Force spell will cause the ground to erupt with a series of sharp ice crystals. Maybe summon a thunderous lightning strike, or barrage the ground with a meteor shower. All depending on what the spell is combined with.
