The player then places this shard into his wrist and the essence from the blood shard mixes with the blood of the player and he is able to produce fire magic. After using a spell in a certain shard for a time, that spell is "memorized" and the shard is no longer required to cast the spell.
We are working on some lightning spells right now, as well as some "utility" spells (phase, blink, etc). We should have a big spell update coming in a few weeks here, probably after our kickstarter launches.
