Deity-based Magics borrow the power of higher beings to perform a set list of spells, as defined within each deity subtype. The amount of people who can learn it is more restricted than other forms of magic because the deities will only acknowledge an individual’s desire for magic under certain circumstances. Deities can be very sensitive about whom they bestow powers onto, and this can limit the other types of magic that one may pursue in tandem. Individual spells must also be taught, either by the deity directly or through a more experienced Follower.
Only some types actually use mana, like Arcane Magic, but all are bound by the same restriction of only having a limited ability to call upon that specific deity before becoming too exhausted to continue.
