Mundane schools
these "schools" of magic can be learned by the player or dwarves by use of reactions. They're not meant to be as powerful as secrets, but nevertheless have their uses in and out of combat. Each school specializes in certain spheres or groups of effects, but there is overlap between schools. Each school uses different items as part of its reactions.

Generic: this is a catch-all school that includes many basic offensive and defensive effects. It requires no special equipment besides an inscribed slate and aether salts.
Aetherial: this school specializes in "pure" magic, that is aetherium as a material and its effects unassociated with any mundane sphere or material. An aether focuser is required.
Hyazith: this school employs fire and frost to destroy opponents. Focuses primarily on combat. The Hyazith Athame is used as part of the rituals to summon its essences.
Polybestia: the magic of shapeshifting, both of your own body and of your enemies. Can also protect oneself and others from conversion spells.
