Magic, The Earth Way

    What comes to me after reading that is... magic of the earth is motion.

    I've never seen it described this way, but I really like it.

    Oh and besides just earth-magic-is-motion, I like to when thinking up magic what it can't do. While I described it having some elemental effects, one obvious thing its no good at is earth elementalism. Which amuses me, as the question is 'what is earth magic'. The world is in motion but its motion is so vast (its spinning on its axis and around the sun, around the galaxy, etc) and so much the foundation of everything, that kineticists can't actually alter it. No flinging stones, causing earthquakes.

    Motion...
    ...Potential?

    That could be one school of thought on it. Turning the potential to move, to change, into the actuality of it.

    Motion, movement, energy. In a way, change: all change is movement.

    Feed on the motion around you-- the wind, a river, your own speed (dangerous), and use that to transfer and control another movement. Air elementalism, telekinesis, physical-adept like abilities. Heat is the excitation of molecules: its moving, vibrating fast. Now you have a way to explain pyrokinesis through the power of kineticism.

    I would think of Earth Magic as being Earth Bending, which evolves from Construction, which evolves from Stability which evolves from Form. This would be opposed by Water Magic, which evolves from Destruction, which evolves from Mutability, which evolves from Formlessness. Air would be Movement. Fire would be Alteration.

    @Thenomain can correct me if I'm misinterpreting, but I think he's asking Earth, the planet, not earth, the element.

    @ixokai Oh, well, in that case, I suppose the unique thing about Earth right now is Life. If this is in a universe with many planets, maybe life on Earth is especially rampant and aggressive, taking the form of Wild Magic that aggressively latches on and refuses to let go.
