    Colors of Magic

    I am designing my own world, and I am placing colors for each school of magic. What are your opinions on what are good choices for colors for each school of magic?

    Yes, that is what I am looking for, thanks. Any other opinions?

    If you are doing "3E Sterotype" necromancy, black is fine.

    If you are doing it like some people on the board do (such as myself), where necromancy can be good or bad depending on the user, I would choose grey.

    I am a big fan of different orders of magic, and I thought that I might try out having every school have an alignment as well as a color. Any suggestions on these?

    Black as a mixture of all colors melds nicely with the study of life and death which in its self is the root of all things.

    Thing is, black isn't a mixture of all colors - that would be white. Sure, black is a mixture of all pigments, but pigments are subtractive - so you have no reflected light, not all of it.

    In mythic Races, there are a race called the Pevishan, who are touched at birth by the arcane. They are born into 'families' of magick (represented by schools).

    There behavior is affected by the family they were born into (like a zodiac):

    Abjuration: Silver
    Conjuration: Gold
    Divination: White
    Enchantment: Blue
    Evocation: Red
    Illusion: Purple
    Necromancy: Gray and Black
    Transmutation: Green
