I'm well aware of the definitions of the words but frankly trying to define 'magic' is a bit fraught at the best of times. I based those definitions on what spells were actually assigned to the skills in game. I'm quite happy to shuffle them around though if people don't mind. icestorm into sorcery, create food into evocation.. etc.
