Wovenstone, also referred to as Alexandrite or Nickal, is a unique rock found sparsely in Quelmar, but is common in other planes of existence. Wovenstone is often found in areas of high fey concentration, or sites that were historically home to the fey races.
Wovenstone was the original Quelmar material for carving runes. As wovenstone became scarce, ancient magicians needed to learn how to make runes out of ordinary rocks.
Wovenstone was rediscovered and experimented with in the early PR era, but rose to prominence again later due to its use in "Pender" brand technologies that were in use until the end of the second Draconic Extinction.
Magical Properties Edit
Wovenstone is rock that is native to the feywild, where magics run wild and inhabit everything. When carved, the shape of the stone informs what sort of magical properties it has. Different spells correspond to different carvings and shapes. Similar to runes, it is a language of shapes and designs.
However, unlike runes, the magic does not come from the energies of the spell, but rather the shape of the stone itself informs what kind of magic the stone will express. Because of this, anyone with a chisel is able to unlock the natural magic of wovenstone, given enough time.
