Behind the cracks and crevices of the world exists a place called the Aether. The Aether is an immaterial place of dreams and potential. Aether permeates the world like a fog, leaking in from this place. Aether brings the world its wonders and marvels. Aether is the fuel for prayers, spells, evocations, and exploits. Those who learn to channel this unseen force of creation are capable of great feats. However, aether is also a poison.
Those exposed to great quantities of aether risk death. The Aether is a barrier against the strange worlds beyond Everdusk. Visitors from the places beyond are seldom encountered, but they are the stuff of nightmares. Discuss only in furtive whispers, these creatures of the Far Realm sometimes survive the deadly journey through the Aether, arriving to wreak chaos in Everdusk.
