  1. Weave

    In the Forgotten Realms campaign setting of the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game, the Weave is the fundamental force of both arcane magic and divine magic, from which spellcasters draw their strength. It permeates the world, comparable to aether, the mystical substance. The Weave is the means by which raw magic is tapped into and used by casters. The Weave is the way in which magic presents itself to beings for their use, and it flows throughout the world, touching almost every corner or existence, with exception of dead magic zones. The Weave coexists with the Shadow Weave.
