The Veil
"We are not defined by our achievements, but by the barriers we have overcome."

The Veil

The Veil is an ancient barrier created by the Elder World Spirits to banish and seal the Bloodstorm away from the mortal realms. They sacrificed themselves to create the barrier. For many thousands of years, the Veil barred planar travel, greatly limited the influence of deities and other greater powers, and prevented the use of arcane magic on Elysium. When the Eladrin pierced the Veil with the Gateways of Azora, it allowed divine influence and arcane energy to bleed through the Veil. Despite the significance of the Veil, there is a vanishingly small number of scholars who know of its existence and even fewer that can perceive and study the barrier.
