You might just categorize it as elemental magic
Lol ‘cause bending is an avatar thing normally
Oh wow, what a great list. I need to look up firebending.
You can call it hydrokinesis or pyrokinesis too. Airbending sounds cooler than simple “air magic”
Fire bending is elemental magic relating to fire
Lol, you should group them under elemental magic and have a drop down that says the names
It’s a very small list so far
Allomancy comes to mind (like from the Mistborn series). Different types of metal give people different powers when consumed, but only certain people can utilize certain metals.
I see… interesting
Diamond bending - conjuring diamonds form the earth or even from thin air.
Monster summoning - forming contracts with beast/monsters and summoning them via portal or gateway
Time/space manipulation - being able to bend time and space to ones will.
Warping - ripping time and space around one’s being to vanish and reappear anywhere the eye can see.
In my world, this particularly powerful magician created this branch of magic called Celestial Magic. It involves drawing upon the powers of mighty outer space (maybe some dark matter) and summoning volatile mini stars as a sort of ultimate move.
What is voliate?
Volatile, I meant. Typo
My vocabulary’s messing up. What does volatile mean again?
Prone to sudden (typically dangerous), frequent changes.
Darkness manipulation - giving darkness a solid form. Advanced users can create sentient life able to change shape.
