Transmutation, also known as Alteration, is a school of magic that consists of spells that change the physical properties of some creature, thing, or condition. A wizard who specializes in transmutation is known as a transmuter.
TransessentationA subschool dedicated to transmutations at a fundemental level, with two prominent disciplines:
TemporalResearched and delved into for millenia, this discipline is a refined version of chronomancy; spells of this discipline can change the past retroactively or alter its flow, and some intersect with precognizance.
RotationalA relatively new discipline that attempts to understand the fundemental nature of matter and magic. See Rotational Junctions.
TransresationA subschool dedicated to large scale alterations, it is barely researched anymore as it is completely understood. However, as of 1559, the theoretical magnum opus of the subschool, Zyxu's Atbash, is yet to have been achieved; it involves mastery over two other spells, Zyxu's Spatial Atbash and Zyxu's Planar Atbash, and the successful casting of either is yet to be replicated. It is named after a possibly fictional wizard mentioned in the Journal of Stone on several occasions.
