I was wanting your opinions on this idea to create a magic system (somewhere between soft and hard, might I add) for a fantasy world that's similar to the concept of ki/qi. Of course, it's a fantasy world (actually, it's more of a fantasy/steampunk cross, albeit not spellpunk), so I was wanting to give it a more Westernized flavoring. I plan on making it have more of an emphasis on magic-like abilities as opposed to increasing physical abilities, but am iffy about it being specifically among the five elements of fire, water, wind, earth, and spirit because I don't want it to come off just as glorified Bending. The name for this power is fëa; one is tapping into their fëa (the latent power of one's life essence) for these abilities, and anyone can at least learn how to use this power, but it requires proper training and dedication to use to its fullest potential. I wanted to perhaps further expand on it for worldbuilding's sake.
