Okay, so in a PM RP i'm involved in, I've seen a lot of fire magic being used. That made me think. So here's my question to everyone: What type(s) of magic do you typically use in your roleplays, if any, and why do you use that particular type(s)? For me, I tend to use healing and fire magics, simply because you do need to heal at times, and fire is very destructive. Not to mention that fire magic can be used to create a campfire, if needed in the rp, and you can't really do that with ice or wind. Another thing those can't do, is light your way down dark rooms/halls, or just dark places in general. A big part of my love for fire magic, is the fact that people tend to use different colors. People tend not to clarify the color when referring to the use of ice magic, but when fire magic comes along, I've seen loads of different colors. Even multicolored flames! I like lightning as well, and I feel not as many people are as drawn to its destructive potential. Again, I like lightning, but that doesn't mean I like it better than fire. I feel that fire is a magic that is used by those who are responsible, and lightning is used by those who plain don't care about anyone/thing that gets in their way. Frying someones' brain is just plain rude to your opponent, though I'm not saying cooking them alive isn't a low blow of its' own. So there you have it. Mine are healing and fire Magic. What are yours? Why do you use or like them? If it's an uncommon type of magic, or a player-made magic, what does it do?
