Within the Realm, the prevailing belief is that the force commonly known as “magic” is the key element that binds the world together. It is a part of all things, and even the most mundane of creatures and things contain a spark of that vital energy. Magic is both responsive and volatile. It can be manipulated by those of sufficient mental and spiritual strength, but often behaves unpredictably when not guided. This unpredictability has spawned a seemingly endless variety of mystic phenomena, ranging from unique events to persistent manifestations that have lasted for eons.
