13 True Ways
This two-hundred mile long rift opened in a previous age when the Diabolist schemes allowed powerful fiends to tear through the walls of the world. Demons poured out through the Abyss until the Great Gold Wyrm fought its way to the bottom of the Abyssal rift and bound the gate with his body. The Gold Wyrm is now a living ward. His presence keeps the greatest fiends from entering the world. Lesser fiends who can sometimes slip in through the smaller cracks remain trapped in the Abyss by the Wyrm’s magic rather than his physical presence. Occasionally a demon breaks through the Great Gold Wyrm’s magic or wizard or sorcerer works to pull one out.
