I just look at that image and wonder; what makes Legion magic so different from other sources of magic? You could assume that each type of magic would channel a different sort of energy but then you throw legion magic into the mix and it just makes things confusing. It's a magic uniquely described for a kingdoms army. You could assign some basic values "pulls" (Like the First People could have a more druidic magical source while Lezkanzi would be more based upon curses and rituals) but Legion magic, as I said before, goes screws that idea up.

So uh... Yeah, what is your take on Dungeon Siege world's magical sources.

The Causeways are an example of Legion magic.

Legion magic is a style that was developed by the old 10th Legion. They took elements from many schools of magic to suit their needs, focusing mainly on practical combat but also borrowing ancient techniques that would serve other purposes, like creating the Causeways. Overall, it is similar in concept to the "Combat Magic" from DS1.

Ah, so it's more like a combination of every element while others more or less only concentrate on one part. Cool; also answers why wonder it looks different visually as well.
