Everything in the Royal Basin begins in the Academy and grows out into the Guilds and from there into the Tables of Governance and that is no different with the Weave. However the Weave has suffered over the years and is no longer the power that it was. Only The Mockingbird Alliance now teaches the Weave and they have suffered over the years.

Are there many types of Weaver?

As an identifier the term: Weaver is generally given to a User of the Weave and covers their definition as a user of magic’s.

However a Weaver learns the paths of the Great Tales back and forth through the Weave and how best to call on them.

What the Weave is

Weavers are odd folk, often conceived under the power of a song, story or compulsion when the Weave is strong with mother.

They are gifted not disciplined, they call out to the Weave and it dances with them not for them.

The Weave is focussed on the power and purity of an individual’s story and how they are enveloped by the world

The age of the story that the weaver is calling upon gives it power, the older it is the more likely it is to have been called upon, used again and then returned strengthened to the Web.

A magic of choirs, of soloists, storytellers, jugglers and other performers working as one or together to achieve huge tapestries of ever growing power and splendour.

Emotional: The magic of the weave is fuelled by the exploits and deeds of the past, present and future. They are the encouragement and focussed forms of passions and desires giving strength and power to those around them.

Inspirational: The weave brings change through inspiration to people, to powers to magic.

Old and New: The Weave is sitting around campfires and telling stories and feeling the first tales of the world, awakening the primal nature of the world itself. The Weave is new and being fashioned every day with the words of the politic and the songs of tavern goers alike.

Alive: The weave is….alive

What the Weave isn’t

Bards being silly all the time

Just Singing

What are the Goals of Basanic Weavers?

At a basic level to keep the stories of the Royal Basin Strong and to seek out the weakening tales and stories and enhance their connection to the web.

To examine the stories of the past and present them as evidence to the political, magical, guildic and so forth peoples as evidence of the foolish actions that are being taken in the present.

To unearth heroic endeavour or terrible tragedy, whatever reverberates the web and introducing it to the Weave.

Protecting the Weave from the Strange

Ensuring that the power of the Weave is kept clear of politics as that is the ultimate of the Strange Corruption.

The Mockingbird Lords restoration needs to be completed for the Weavers to take conrol back of the Weave in their region.

What are the Attitudes of Basanic Weavers?

The Weave is a form of magic that is like no other and defies the ability of others to understand and to that end it is not for the unenlightened to defile.

It is an ageless magic and whilst others believe that their magic is oldest or best nothing can survive in this world without a story.

The Weave cannot be controlled only experienced, it is different in each telling and different for each Weaver that calls on it.

Stories of the world are what hold it together, they are like a great web protecting it and preventing it from being invaded.

Casting Brief

Casting is through action or word – Song, recitation of poetry, juggling – A Performance
