    The question I'm asking is pretty simple. If you were a mage in erebus (or the "real" world, if you like) what mana spheres would you control? please post an explanation of your choices with your vote. I wont make any limit on the spheres you can select, but don't do anything like selecting all of the spheres because that would not add anything to this. Try to pick the ones you see yourself using very often.

    Life, Death, and Mind. {In Magic: The Gathering terms = Green, Black, and Blue.}

    Just like having command over "life ... and death itself! Mwahahahahaha!"

    Mind magic is for when you need more subtle effects. And Mind III Domination does not hurt either.

    I want law because I hate it when people don't follow the rules.

    Fire, entropy and death.

    Fireball flinging mages are always cool...

    Who doesn't want an army of skeletons?

    And entropy to weaken your opponents, makes it easier to mock them for their weaknesses after you've beat them...

    Life, Creation, and Dimensional spheres.

    Life so that I can give care to those in need.

    Creation because to make something is far better than to destroy, and exemplifies some of my philosophical views.

    Dimensional because you avoid traffic.

    I would have shadow and Enchantment.

    Shadow would give me invisibility, mistforms, and other companions to shelter me from the evils of Erebus. Who can find you to purge you if your invisible?

    Enchantment has always intruiged me. I could use it for a multitude of things, including golems.

    Sun and Water, cause I like the idea of using two radically different spheres.

    Shadow, because I dislike being in the sun.

    Mind, because I'm so damn absent-minded all the time.

    Air, because "I talk to the wind, my words are all carried away."

    Chaos and life.
    I don't really know why these two jump out at me, but they seem like the sort of spheres I'd study if I lived on Erebus, and they seem to complement each other nicely, somehow. After all, what in this universe could possibly be more chaotic than life?

    Mind, Chaos, and Enchantment for me. I love the thought of mental subversion, although I doubt I could weild that power without going mad. I am a true child of chaos, rules were meant to broken. Ane I love the idea of creating wonderous artifacts to enrapture and entrance.

    Spirit (closest to the meaning soul), mind and body.

    The main thing here is control. I wish to have full control of my own soul, mind and body. I hate it when I said something I do not mean to, do something against my own will, or fail to make a sound judgement. For example, getting emotional and shouting at the top of my lung. It scare the peoples around me and hurt them emotionally.

    Self-control is something that a lot of people has taken for granted, and sadly, not everyone can control their own action, behaviour, or temperament properly.

    I wish I did not hurt too much people all these years. I need to be more mature, and I want to have a better self-control.

    Btw, I'm a able-bodied person, and a sane one too. At least, that's what I think so.

    Force, Sun, and Shadow.

    Force because I like to move my opponents around, Shadow because I like sneaking around until it's time to fight, and Sun because I like to do the whole 'Blaze of Glory' thing during combat.

    Creation, Life, Enchantment, Mind and Body.

    Creation and Enchantment because I like making things; Mind and Body for the prospect improving myself mentally and physically, manipulating others, etc.; and Life for the healing and curing.

    Water, because it is the best element (sorry, I'm a long-time competitive swimmer.)
    Life, because you should be able to protect yourself and loved ones with healing powers.
    Shadow, because you should be free to do whatever you choose, and if a veil of deception is required to accumulate that freedom, then so be it.

    Creation, Enchantment, and Mind. That's about as close to 1337 jedi (or sith) skillz as I'm going to get in Erebus. My magic would be used constructively (albeit sneakily), for personal gain and enjoyment, rather than destruction and mayhem, like many spheres are made for.

    Mind, Dimensional, and Metamagic.

    Mind, because not only am I always forgetting things, I like knowledge.
    Dimensional because of the recent increase in oil prices :p
    Metamagic because it trains me to use my skills better.
