Elements can found all throughout existence, and are some of the fundamental building blocks that constitute reality. A trained sorcerer can manipulate these ambient elements around themselves to bring forth small feats of magic. Though not as destructively potent as magic drawn directly from the Planes, this ambient magic is easier to shape into delicate, subtle or longer-lasting effects.

Sorcery differs from its counterpart, Arcanism, in that its practitioners manipulate all ambient elements except for spirit.
