Triangle of 10 Elements (magic system)
In my fantasy world, Takeover Creania, I have three gods that control the elements and thus its lush magical power:
- Seraphina - elder sister, goddess of the Sun and Fire (heat and flames)
- Hassan - middle brother, god of the Stars and Lightning (seas and storms)
- Falon - younger sister, goddess of the Moon and Ice (water itself sometimes)
My overall plan for this magic system is this, each one of these gods divided the people of this world into thirds, but after many of war, you (the main character or avatar) begin this adventure in a new time of peace. Each one of the Three Main Elements combines to form the "Triangle of 10 Elements." Imagine a triangle of 10 dots with the elements of Fire (red), Lightning (yellow), and Ice (blue) each representing one point of this triangle.
Don't understand? Triangle base=4 > then 3 > then 2 > then 1 = 10 elements
My major problem is this, I can't for the life of me come up with the 6 (or 7) other elements that must go into this triangle.
There are three races of this fantasy world that were created when the 3 Gods divided the human race, each one represents that one main element of their god. Once there was a time when the three races couldn't interbreed, but since now peace has come to rein, these three elements have come into being (based off of the dominant and recessive genes of their parents of course).
FIRE (red) - ?(dark orange) - ?(light orange) - LIGHTNING (yellow) - ?(lime green) - ?(turquoise) - ICE (blue) - ?(indigo/violet) - ?(magenta/pink) - FIRE Cycled Again
Triangle Center (black, gray, or white?) - Nothingness/Air, the fourth god, the god that was destroyed before it was born, blinded by hatred and chaos, this magic can be used the humans regularly, but under strict authority guidance.
10 Elements: 1=Fire, 2=Fire-Lightning, 3=Lightning-Fire, 4=Lightning, 5=Lightning-Ice, 6=Ice-Lightning, 7=Ice, 8=Ice-Fire, 9=Fire-Ice, 10=Nothingness
Now do you see my problem? The three main elements based off types of energy, heat, motion, and coldness, so I don't really know how to mix properly. I need some serious help on this one, please.
Here's what I have so far: Dark Orange=earth/rock, Light Orange=light/holy, Lime=nature/wood, Turquoise=poison, Indigo=darkness, Magenta=celestial/gravity
I don't like these combinations at all, something doesn't seem right, I've based them off of the colors alone, that's why I need help, it needs to be more scientific or more energy-based, but I also need a complete range of elemental magic for this fantasy world of mine (like earth and poison maybe).
Please and Thank You!
