Hmm. I tend to think of the difference between the two types of magic this way.
Standard sorcery as practiced by the schoolmen is constructed through artifice (using their intellect and ancient forms to wield the power, that originates from outside - thus "source-ery"), whereas the Cishuarim basicaly "channel" the power directly via their emotive connectection with their god/ancestors.
The term water is especially relevent in this case, as it suggests power without form. Water is the most destructive element in the world. Beats fire hands down - and carves the very shape of mountains and continents. <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: --> view post
