Any magical practice that interrupts or redirects a transference of energy or an application of force is likely to fall under the umbrella of Negation. It's not just turning away fireballs; it's misdirecting gravity, or blocking out the light of the noonday sun. Negation is the parent skill, the synthesis of all the tricks and philosophy you learn; to progress in it, you have to simultaneously master Negation Methods, Negation Phemes, Negation Spells, and the underlying Theory of Negation.

Negation Methods

The Negation Methods Skill is important for those who wish to protect themselves from the nefarious deeds of their enemies...or their own mistakes. This is by far the easiest bit of Negation to learn, for the methodology comes somewhat naturally for those who are learning magic, and the means of controlling it. Those who spend little to no time learning how to prevent or remove harmful incantations and revisions are likely to find themselves at the will of others more often than not.

Negation Phemes

The basic building blocks of the Negation Skill, Negation Phemes is to be studied by all who wish to advance past the level of beginner in the studies of Negation. Without the most basic Phemes learned here, one will have few options available to them when it comes time to cancel out a harmful spell or prevent another one from being cast. While most of these Phemes can be picked up by other means through tutoring and teaching, it is best to simply learn them as soon as possible and be prepared rather than cross one's fingers and wish for the best.

Negation Spells

The reason for studying Negation is to prepare one's self for the need to cast spells contained in the Negation Spells Skill. Without the building blocks and theoretical knowledge, these spells could not be cast, yet without these spells, there would be no reason to learn the other skills. Several of the spells contained within this Skill are at the beginner level, yet as one progresses, one learns more potent castings of basic spells.

Theory of Negation

Understanding how something is done is just as important as understanding how to do it, and so it is with Negation. If Negation is about cancelling and protecting, then the importance of understanding the Theory of Negation should not need to be stated. The Theory of Negation will teach wizards how to defend themselves in minor ways, giving them the knowledge of the tools rather than the tools themselves.
