The Planes of Arcana
The fundamental elements that hold the fabric of existence together within the Pantheon universe are known as the Planes of Arcana. These intangible and abstract planes of magic were formed from the resonating forces that destroyed all life prior to the Planar Collisions. Each one of these planes is comprised of a specific arcane force that serves an important function in the universe. Unseen and infinite, these are not realms that can be visited, but their powers can be channeled through an array of complex and dangerous magical disciplines. Once tapped, they can be used like an artist’s palette to create masterful spells or imbue magical abilities.
The Known Planes of Arcana
This magical plane touches every particle in the universe. It provides the seeds for teleportation as well as being the most destructive form of magic. Its origins are believed to rest with Nexus, the Lost Goddess.
Little is known about this forbidden magic, but some say it is the remnants of a dark universe that existed before time. This dark magic corrupts anything it touches and twists it into a force of malevolence.
All those that have perished within the universe have a spiritual echo that lurks within this necromantic plane. In some circles this is also called the Spiritual Arcana.
This rejuvenating life force is an aura that bathes every living thing in the universe. It is often the root of all healing spells and protections wards.
The minds of every sentient being are part of this vast cerebral network. Enchanters are masters of this plane that they use to manipulate mental faculties.
Within every natural element of the universe can be found a spark of the primal arcana. These are the elemental forces both summoned and harnessed by mages.
Discovered by inquisitive and tenacious sorcerers, Chaos Magic is an unstable arcane force that crosses from plane to plane in a violent and erratic dance. By latching onto these radical arcane particles, mages have been able to tap into every known arcane plane. Although they allow greater access and manipulation of the Planes of Arcana, they are dangerous if not deadly to the minds and bodies of those who dare to harness them.
