Chronicles of Neverael
This mysterious form of magick has all but died out in the lands of Antegaea and Fal’Durast – a strange power from the lost past which many believe to no longer exist. Vyrmagi, as it is called, is believed to have been granted to mortals by the now extinct race of Dragon-kind.
According to legend, those who practiced Vyrmagi were granted their powers in a strange and dangerous exchange of fealty wherein the heart was plucked, still-beating, from their chest and infused with the mystical might of a Dragon. After their heart was placed back within their bodies, these Vyrmagi were able to draw upon the incredible powers of the ancient race of Dragonkind. The exact parameters and capabilities of their magic is not known but legends tell of Vyrmagi displaying unspeakable physical strength, resistance to physical damage which made the Iron Knights of the Atlaneian age seem frail by comparison, and seem to also indicate the Vyrmagi were capable of distorting and manipulating natural forces and even other kinds of magick as needed.
Most legends agree however, that the Vyrmagi owed their powers to the Dragons who infused their hearts with their power and said Dragons are believed to have wielded compulsion-like influence over them and their actions. Being an extinct form of magick, the exact details of this strange power might never be known.
