    Default Re: Where does magic come from?

    This answer is mainly speculation based on the EQ lore.

    First, it was the Nameless who created the universe and the four main gods, Xegony, Rathe, Fennin Ro, and Water (which was divided into three parts, Tarew Marr, E'ci, and Povar). The Nameless gave the gods of power the task of maintaining order and creating their own minions.

    Veeshan was the first minion of the gods of power to discover Norrath, and she created all dragonkind. Afterwards, various other minion gods discovered Norrath and placed their own creations on the planet.

    According to the Words of Pure Magic tome, many forces bind life together, but Druzaic is the binding force of magic. In addition, the tome states that Druzaic has always existed. So it may possibly be that magic is part of the universe that the Nameless created.

    The gods probably did not give the denizens of Norrath magic, more likely the gods probably taught their creations how to harness the magic that is all around them. The reason why I think that magic is not given by the gods is because instead of The Rending and The Shattering and the gods leaving Norrath, they simply could have taken magic away from Norrath and its denizens. Norrath would have been pretty much been no threat if the gods could simply remove all magic from armor, weapons, tomes, words, symbols, etc.

    So my guess is that the source of magic is the natural energy of the universe that the Nameless created and the way it is harnessed is through Druzaic words and symbols.
