Midgard Ley Magic: Circle of the Living World

Welcome back to this series where we dive into the world of Midgard and the magical currents of ley lines that course through it. If you’ve not had a chance to read prior entries in the series, you can find them here.

In this article, we dive deeper into GM preparation, presenting a set of optional tables used to answer the most common geomancer question: “Are there any ley lines nearby?” Locating Ley Lines Ley line savants (2nd-level geomancers) and Ley Initiates (feat) can sense the presence of...
