What it is that seperates the lesser & greater paths of magic?

From: Raymond E. Feist
Date: 07 February 2000

The labels, Greater and Lesser, are Tsurani by nature, and reveal the Great
One's bias on the subject.

Basically, Lesser Path magic is the more complex in significant areas, and
would encompass what we here on Earth would call shamanistic magic, spirit
magic, sympathetic magic, etc.

Greater Path is a more direct manipulation of "mana" (i.e. what Nakor calls
"stuff") by cantrips and spoken spells.

Best, R.E.F.
