Horven nods, listening to the explanation. "I haven't a head for magic, myself. Only thing I know is that it works."
"Well, that's how it works, mostly," Carmina says. "You just need to be sure enough that it'll work that it actually works. For me at least, might be different if you're doing your magic from a book or getting it from a god," she adds with a shrug.
"Well, prayers are- well... ah," Carridan tries to contribute to the conversation, but his words trail off into a stammered mumble. His face scrunches up then as he tries to find a way to articulate his thoughts but, in the end, his shoulders sag in defeat. Shaking his head, he conceeds, "Belief in the magic itself or belief in a god behind it, is there much of a difference?"
"I think so. When you pray, you're making a personal connection with a cosmic being," Horven muses. "That seems leagues apart from studying magic from a book."
