The problem I am having is that my magic is simply totoo powerful for my world where a noob with a simple book can destroy the entire world, there isare also many other problems that I won't speak of now because I am attempting to ask one distinct question. Now the two magic systems that I talk about have a serious power-level problem, in-fact fact all of them do, but these two are similar enough to be the same question.

So I guess I should state the universal laws of magic first. (Some of which are my hypothesis of more fundementalfundamental physics  (and also some real ones))

Energy cannot be created or destroyed (2nd law of thermodynamics) Mass.

Mass is made if energy (e=mc^2e = mc^2) Energy.

Energy is split into two indivisible units, the basic and the infinite. (The first law of energy (hypothesis (but real in my world))) The.

The infinite indivisible can absorb energy but cannot release any (second law of energy(total fiction)) All.

All reactions tend to a single infinite indivisible particle (third law of energy (total fiction)).

Magic never breaks any of these rules. Why is this important? Well let me just list.

Any recommendations are appreciated.

How do I keep magic users from destroying my world? WIP!

The problem I am having is that my magic is simply to powerful for my world where a noob with a simple book can destroy the entire world, there'sthere is also many other problems that allow for fortifications becoming totally useless and so-on. The first thing I should probably start out with is my magic.

There are four typeswon't speak of magic thatnow because I need help with and the various problems caused by it, I'll start with what's simplest firstam attempting to ask one distinct question. I

SoNow the two magic systems that I talk about have this thing called Ithlia, it basically gives you extraa serious power-sensory powers, now I don't know how to explain exactly how it works, just thelevel problem it creates, people can use it to just explore the world and nothing would be a surprise toin-fact all of them. I know this requires more explanation do, but I just don't know howthese two are similar enough to give it. It just removes all the surprise andbe the characters would always know what's going to happen before it doessame question.

Now the elemental magic system doesn't create any problems, it's really just a bare-bones idea thatSo I haven't fully designed. The basic idea is that elementals control energy in the form of two indivisible units, (maybe three) the unit of basic energy and the unit of infinite energy. Since matter is just a form of energy they control that to. One of the main things in the story is that people don't understandguess I should state the fundamentaluniversal laws of magic and must discover them from scratch so they start out with many different types of elementals such as fire, water or lightning, infact there is a whole other thing system that everybody believes is different but is just a sub-class of this one..first. However I am not facing problems with it (yetSome of which are my hypothesis of more fundemental physics(and also some real ones) so all I will say is that it controls the living. The main problem I am facing with this one is that I have an idea and almost nothing else.)

The fourthEnergy cannot be created or destroyed (and most problematic2nd law of thermodynamics) is called Kyros, you basically use it to split the universe in two. This Mass is also the most developed of the developed trio, butmade if energy (as with Ithliae=mc^2) it has problems that would make the story pointless. With Kyros what you did Energy is you make a boundary within the universe that separates one part from the othersplit into two indivisible units, then you give it properties that say just how connected the worlds arebasic and just what can stay in. Now how big of a "shape" isn't really limited, that's because all you need to keep in mind is the specific variables required for all the rest to fall in place via geometric relationsinfinite. (ie. Radius, relative position, border-type, fill-type and carry. in the caseThe first law of a sphere ocenergy (hypothesis (but real in my world) to allow for more complex shapes mental aids were created. however their is only one limit to the size, the area which Kyros)) The infinite indivisible can be used. This is problematic because oneabsorb energy but cannot release any (second law of the fill types is where you place all the stuff within the"shape" on the exact outside, this means that a guy with a small mental aid could literally destroy a planet by pointing at a line inenergy(total fiction)) All reactions tend to a booksingle infinite indivisible particle (third law of energy (total fiction))

Magic never breaks any of these rules. ThisWhy is obviously a serious problem because everyone lives on only one planet... this important? Well let me just list
