Elements — air

Air surrounds us. It is everywhere we go. It is huge. But how can a Vitki use it in magic?

One of the easiest ways to use air in magic is simply through galder. Using your diaphragm to breathe in intone the name of a rune. This is a simple yet effective way to access air magic. You can also create a bind rune and galder the individual staves for much the same effect. Don’t underestimate the power of your own voice in magical workings. If it comes from deep inside your chest it is powerful indeed!

Another way to use air is to draw a bind rune on a piece of paper. Go outside if there’s a breeze blowing. Galder the bind rune and rip the piece of paper up into tiny bits. Toss the bits up into the air and let the breeze take them. This will take your magical sending as far as the bits of paper will travel. You are literally releasing your magic into the universe. Powerful work!

A little more unique is to couple the Elements of air and water together this way. Heat water on the stove until it is boiling and steaming. Take a styrofoam cup with a bind rune drawn on it. Place the steaming water into the cup. Galder the bind rune and the magic will be released through the steam into the air. Air will carry it away to do its work.

These are three very simple yet effective ways to use the Element of air in your magic work. With a little creativity I’m sure you can come up with many more!
