Schools Of Magic
The Lifewell is the vessel through which all life flows. Elves have learned to tap into their own river of the Lifewell and use it to manipulate the world around them. Though some have learned to use it to great ends, all elves know the dangers of the Lifewell. For when the Lifewell is tapped, so too is the very essence of their soul. Elves are taught from a very young age to temper their usage of magic for fear it may deplete their lifewell completely.
