First a brief explanation. In my world there are three basic categories of magic:
My question actually relates to the first two categories. Good magic was given to humanity by the creator. The cosmological origins of evil magic are irrelevant to this thread. Suffice it to say that it manifests as a corruption or counterfeit version of the magical disciplines that fall into the first category.
There are three separate disciplines or schools of Original magic: Soulfire, Shadowhand (or Silvanhand, I'm still deciding), and Runespark. Detailed explanations of these are below in spoiler tags. Each of these three has an evil counterpart whose description I have also included in the spoiler tags below. For example, the evil counterpart of soulfire is called dragonfire.
Now that I've gotten the exposition out of the way:
- What would be a suitable name for the body of evil magic as a whole?
- Between "shadowhand" and "silvanhand", which is better? EDIT: This question has been solved. Thanks!
- What would be a good name for shadowhand/silvanhand's evil counterpart? EDIT: This question has been solved. Thanks!
- What would be a good name for runespark's evil counterpart?
The latter two questions are those that chiefly stump me at present. Thanks!
Spoiler for Magical Disciplines:
*Non-magic is termed so because it has the appearance of magic, but is actually natural rather than supernatural in origin. The only art so far that falls into this category is gravencraft, which utilizes trained and bound elementals to do the will of the user. But since, in the context of this world, elementals are merely animals (but a different kind of animal from the ordinary sort), the feats which gravencraft accomplishes can be likened to the way we might train dogs or ferrets to do tricks in our world, so they aren't really magical.
