Lore of Metal

From Warhammer - The Old World - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

The Lore of Metal is Magic derived from Chamon, the white wind of magic. [1a][4a]

Chamon is heavy and dense, attracted to metal, especially gold as metal attracted to a magnet. [1a] it leaves behind a patina that only those with the Second Sight can see, resembling motes of gold dust, falling like snow where it is strong, covering things sensitive to it. Even the magisters who use the wind can seem dusted with gold, giving them an almost metallic look. [1b]


Magisters of the Gold Order find their bodies growing stiffer with a golden hue as they grow in power. [4a]


The influence of Chamon is said to account for effect gold exerts upon many, inciting greed, violence, and war. [1a]
