The Arcane Torrent
In the world of Goarahn all magic comes from something known as the Arcane Torrent. It is an invisible force flowing through the world itself. The Arcanist Guild believes it is the very thread used to make up the tapestry of creation itself. Spells that revolve around magical use pull from the Arcane Torrent, in some ways small and others large. With each spell, a small thread is pulled to accomplish the task. The great casters of Goarahn know how to pull on several threads at once. It is believed that some individuals can use the torrent like a well, a fresh source of energy and power. Though there are only rumors of that kind of use. In traditional study it is often frowned on giving yourself over to the Arcane Torrent. Colleges teach restraint and control. Even the blood of the sorcerers control the flow of the Arcane Torrent to its host, unbeknownst to the sorceror.
