A magical Grove, the kind created by an intersection of the magical laylines, this particular grove is formed by the intersection of three magical laylines. Everything that grows here and everything that lives here is magical in some way.
The air is thick with magic, practically humming with it.

Selina stands in a clearing near the center of the grove regarding her opponent with critical blue eyes.
Selina is dressed in her college uniform, a dark blue tunic with a skirt stopping mud thigh. She wears her black raven feather trimmed cloak and hood and a satchel over her shoulder. Her staff, formed of twisted and shaped wood with gems, crystals, runes, and other arcane symbols and components set in it, is held in her right hand while her left hand holds her leather bound spellbook.

Her spells are prepared and in this magical grove any magic user or item is at the height of their power.
But she awaits her opponent to make the first move.

It was rare for the sorceress to engage in formal combat. However, it was always intriguing to see how a student of the college of Elbion would fare against a graduate from the Academie ars Magia.
OF course, she didn't wear her usual, by some standards insane garb, but instead, she wore the red and blue, gold-starred uniform displaying her rank of graduation from the Academie.

Of course, it would be a perfect time to begin the duel. »May I? « The sorceress bowed before raising her crystal focus.
Through it she channelled the magic of the environment, forming it into a beam of intense light, which carved a groove through the grass as it made its way towards Selina.

Selina nodded and let the mage cast the first spell.
The beam of light burned the ground on its path towards her. Normally she would cast an arcane shield but she decided to take a more active approach.
Her staff moved of its own accord while she held on tightly, it quickly levitated to the right and pulled her out of the way while the runes on the staff glowed and she cast her own spell.

With her outstretched hand a ring of six icicles appeared and then fired all at once like crossbow bolts.
Selina wasn't idle, as soon as the icicles left her hand she was chanting again to cast another spell in preparation for a counter attack.

(oops I forgot to watch!)

The beam of light tracked behind Selina, only burning away from the path when icicles were prepared around her opponent's being and shot at the sorceress.
Perhaps a bit of an unruly element this ice was.
In turn, the beam of light focused into a large spheroid resembling a sun up close that burned blindingly bright for that area. Neither Leonora could see beyond it.

And of the icicles that passed through it?
Magical water splashed against her academic wear. Disgusting, the fabric was rather delicate!

Her ice was blocked, it appeared this mage liked to use heat, perhaps something more specific but in the midst of battle she couldn't puzzle it out.

No attack was forthcoming but Selina decided to cast her defensive spell anyways, creating an intangible she'll of magical energy around herself. Then she quickly switched to engaged again. In this entire time her lips were moving practically none stop as she was casting one spell after another. She aimed her staff and muttered the brief incantation.
A bolt of lightning lanced forth from the staff aimed at her opponent.
