Magic on Galwyndor - during the time of the Everwind Series - is outlawed and regarded by most of the population as a myth. According to lore, its use and study was widespread during the time of the Befores (people from antiquity) until it was universally outlawed for fear that magic would destroy the world. A massive campaign was undertaken to seek out all magic users with the aid of powerful eggs called Eari Stones, and all who practiced magic were put to death.
A scattered number of groups and individuals have attempted to learn, revive, and restore magic throughout the ages up to the current time with no success due to the existence of the Eari Stones. It was believed that magic was impossible, but recent developments have proven that it can be done with limited but devastating effects. The drug Adoxipham is believed to be infused with magic.
