Elementals have more natural control over the well than Mages do. However, mages can exact more control over the well with proper training. In this way, the energy in an area can be seen as a piece of fabric that an Elemental and a Mage, or two Mages, are fighting over. The Elementals have a pair of scissors with which to cut what portions of the fabric they want, and the Mages must use their hands to tear off what they can. Each time control is transferred, and each time some is used, the power in the area decreases.
Eventually, after enough use, the energy in the area will be depleted. Over time, the energy drawn from the area is replenished. However, during the time that it is depleted, Elementals must draw their powers from directly within themselves, which can prove dangerous.
The well is split up into fourteen sections: one for each element. Elements have more natural energy in certain areas opposed to others.
