“Who created The Rim even Gods can’t tell… but it’s odd with many wierd Raw materials… Magic Glass being the oddest of all in that unmagic belt of our World.”
It’s said that in the beginning The Rim was not there, but in references from middle Dark Ages it begins to appear. No one seems to know or the Gods simply wont share the knowledge about this topic. No wonder as its a really odd place, neglecting the abilities of any Mana Manipulator making it almost impossible to use Magic Paths. Yet its the source of Magic Glass, first discovered and used by Mawmen.
As some Mawmen where forced from The Rim and Darin and took refugee at Ljostari, a few other Races like Kobold and T'Aurs learned to refine the Raw material into Resources in the form of ingots, rods and bars. Some say that it was these exclusive teachings that caused the Vular to stir the trouble that ended with Ljostari sinking.
Even though the Mawmen has harvested and worked with Magic glass the longest, legend has it, that it was the T’Aurs who ended up being the greatest Crafters regarding Magic glass. When Ljostari sank many of their Crafting Lords died, but their Overlord and a vast amount of Magic glass managed to escape. Realizing how vital his knowledge was, he took on Apprentices from Moss'ari, Kobold, Fautyr, Ljost Alfar, Drakk Alfar and two more we don’t know of.
Magic glass is still harvested exclusively by Mawmen, who guard their mines with secrecy and ferocity all along The Rim. The very few places where its other Races harvesting came at quite a cost.
It’s found throughout the entire World, but the amount and Purity is the most and best at The Rim. Where Miners follow the ores deep into the ground.
Magic glass comes in all 8 Colours and an odd rainbow swirl, all with Purity ranging from 1 to 1000. Mostly an ore varies in Purity as it runs and where variation occur it tends to break.
If it hit, pierce, or cuts a Mana Manipulator, their use of Magic Paths is disrupted.
