Below is a partial list of the spells in Sever Bronny’s world of Sithesia, as found in the series The Arinthian Line and Fury of a Rising Dragon. The spells are the standard and elemental sets our heroic trio, Augum Bridget and Leera, know. More spells will be revealed as they are published.
Cycle: practicing every spell one knows, back-to-back.
Learning “wild”: Learning by intuition. Highly dangerous. Warlocks are taught early on in the academy to stop indulging in their wild tendencies lest it kill them. Lightning warlocks are mosdragont prone to dying this way.
Chronocast: Casting one spell after another in quick succession (common).
Simulcast: Casting an elemental and a standard spell at the same time (rare).
The Sleeving: When all twenty arm rings fuse into one band, indicating the warlock has achieved mastery. Happens on its own.
The Settling: When a warlock works hard enough and advances well beyond the standard competencies of their degree, their eyes may flare with their element. Happens on its own.
Hallowed Trust: An old tradition wherein a warlock will cease to battle an opponent to give him or her their degree via the Convery Degree spell. A day of peace and celebration is declared, and the enemies are expected to share a toast and a cup of wine or ale, before returning to combat the next morning.
Arcastration: The total stripping of the ability to cast arcanery
Magic: Fake arcanery. Parlor tricks, card tricks, and the like. Used as a derogatory term against other warlocks to cheapen their craft.
Permanence: An enchantment typically sinks to permanence after 100-300 years, depending on the skill of the caster.
Feat of Legend: A legendary casting.
Quint: Used in the Academy of Arcane Arts to denote a five-day “week” consisting of four classes and one Study Day. The Sithesian calendar is exactly 30 days long, and thus 360 days are in a year.
Er priem: Performing a service without pay or benefit; community service.
Proata mentora: Performing tutelage to less experienced warlocks; can also be community service.
Illegal spell: In the Academy of Arcane Arts, it is illegal to learn or cast a spell more than two degrees beyond one’s own degree.
The seven kingdoms of Sithesia: Solia, Canterra, Nodia, Tiberra, Ohm, Abrandia, Sierra

Note that there are variations depending on culture. Also, golden bars on the shoulder typically denote the difference within the same robe color. This is known as “achieving one’s golden bar.”
