Original Edition Glossary

This is the glossary of terms from the old Avalon website. I am posting it here because the old Avalon website was taken down and the site is no longer accessible on the Internet Archive. I did not write this glossary; it is being archived here for reference only.

Aldenmor
A world where magic still exists as a natural resource. Home to the Fairimentals, many species of magical animals and various creatures and races.

Dreamcatcher
Ancient spiritual tool used to help assure good dreams to those that sleep under them. A dreamcatcher is usually placed where the morning light can hit it. As you sleep all dreams from the spirit world have to pass through the dreamcatcher. Only good dreams can pass through the hole in the center while the bad dreams are caught in the webbing and are destroyed by the morning light. A dreamcatcher woven from strands of the magic web hangs over the Ravenswood portal to keep out harmful magic and let in good magic.
