The Crucible is believed by most to be the source of all magic in Terrus. Some take this to the point where it is worshipped as a deity. The crucible resides in a snow covered land of it’s own, and its vastness consumes more than half of the island. While few have actually seen it first hand, it is said to be a large, metal cube that floats slightly above the island, held down with chain links the size of young dragons. The structure radiates immense amounts of arcane energy, which is sought out by wizards all over Terrus. If this power was somehow harnessed into one being, in the wrong hands, the result would be devastating. So that this may prevented, The Crucible is defended by a group called The Guardians.
