"Magic's more than just hurting stuff. Magic enables us to keep warm in cold weathers and warm during hot times. It's what allows healers to mend bones and stitch flesh together. Some allows one to travel over far distance in a mere moment, start fire when there's no wood, produce water in a desert. Magic is no mere weapon, it's so much more. Like with this Wind Tome," explained Ranyin feeling annoyed at Gytha's ignorance of what magic can do raised Stormcalmer and started channeling his psychic energy through the tome calling upon the power of Wind to produce a sustained gentle breeze to keep flowing around Ranyin, Gytha and Amon in order to fend off the heat from the road, "can make the surrounding cooler or," he continued opening the tome to read on how to perform a more complex maneuver which was to cause the dust caught in the breeze to align themselves in such away that when light passes through them, the refract and form the image of pidgeons flying through the viewers, "allow me to create images in the air around us."
"You've never seen much magic till now have you?" Ranyin asked Gytha and spared a questioning glance towards Amon

"Impressive display. I've never really seen magic used in such a way, Neviskotian mages tend to think of the combat applications of magic before anything else. Though I have seen my older sister Tatiana make little cubes of ice to put in drinks and such," she said, shrugging.

"But in battle, not all personel are for combat. You have those who tend to the wounded, the ones who create the weapons, the ones who fill in logistic roles or something like that. Mages are first and foremost scholars, not soldiers in a sense. Only the best and most disciplined Kigen mages actually go out to fight alongside the army from my academy. That's because students aren't many and it's common to lose mages in battle, hence the best stand a better chance to survive than the less battle-spirited ones. The average mage would spend more time trying to keep food from spoiling by controlling the temperature with magic as well as heal the wounded, sepparate clean water from tainted ones and so fort. These I read are vital for military support even though the mages never fight the enemy directly. No ammount of bruteforce can efficiently purify water as fast as a full fledged mage...don't the mages of Neviskotia not apply magic for tasks that are too difficult for the soldiers to handle?" Ranyin asked Veronika.
He decided to withhold some facts he read about how some mages could use magic to manipulate the weather, transport whole armies across miles of land in a blink of an eye. Such knowledge might be best kept in Kigen, he thought.

Lady Aisha almost never did anything miraculous or magical any of the times I saw her, but I know that as I left Sanctuary, she was watching over me. Nothing else could have explained that storm. Amon thought to himself, thinking back to the beginning of his journey. The young Rexian had been walking through the desert of hours and hours, but for most of that time, he could see nothing beyond the walls of swirling sand that surrounded him. Aside from that, magic in Sanctuary was generally performed by the maidens, and those serving in the military.
Ranyin's explanation about Kigenese magic soon had him thinking about the fallen again, no surprise as they were mentioned as the primary prompt of militarize magic in the nation from the sounds of things. He still had the files Weyland had handed to him too now that he thought about it. Hmm, Raquel didn't ask for those when we left. I guess that means she trusts me? ... or trusts Weyland I guess. he thought to himself reaching into his coat to retrieve the files. Once he had them, he opened up the folder and went straight to the section involving the fallen. There were notes about their capabilities, almost all of them Ranyin had already mentioned, but there were a few more, some outrageous and hard to believe, and others that seemed possible. Before any of those notes was a disclaimer explaining that all of this was gathered data and that indeed some of it was indeed junk. It bore Weyland's signature as well.
They're pretty close neighbors of ours but I don't know much about them. All I knew before this was that they looked like human birds, were evil, and couldn't reach Sanctuary due to Aisha's protection over us. the Rexian thought while looking them over. He could suddenly understand why Weyland needed a live one. There was no use trying to build weapons to combat enemies that could supposedly phase through walls, regrow lost limbs, and heal by eating live victims. Something to combat that would bankrupt the military. Most of it had to be non sense, or the Kigenese couldn't last against them, right?

''Seems they're passing the time well, eh Gil?'' He said, giving a look at the wagon. ''Well, not like up here there's much to do to pass time.'' He took a look around. ''Though, there was that other wyvern rider.'' Gil let out a grunt. ''Well, we are bound to spend a long time with them, I guess being more social would be more convenient in the long run. Then again, you don't have to worry about it anyway.'' He laughed, Gil merely grunted again.

OOC: This is probably my last post of Chapter 3 since I'm getting ready to put up Chapter 4.
