Dweomerflow was analteration spell used in the creation of magical items.[1]


This spell had two different effects, depending on the caster's target:

If dweomerflow was cast on a wizard or mage, it caused the next spell they cast to have no effect and rather flow into a prepared item, set as a magical receptacle. Examples of these included focal stones, crystal balls, artifacts or magical devices that required recharging. It created a resonating field between the caster and the item, allowing the magic to flow from one to the other.[1]

If the spell was cast on an item, it allowed the caster to share charges or stored spells from that item to another, using their own body as a conduit. The caster was required to have physical contact between both items during this process.[1]

Divine UseEdit

A fountain of holy water, consecrated altar or similar divine site could store a dozen or so spells that had been accompanied by a casting of dweomerflow. They could then have been gradually released by someone of the same faith to which the site was sanctified. More powerful spells required a casting of abeyance in addition to dweomerflow.[2]

Many holy sites scattered across Faerûn were well-protected by powerful offensive spells that were released if they were intruded upon by the faithless. This magic was often stored within a holy symbol that was doubtlessly present at the divine location. To bypass these spell effects, a cold iron tool could be used to remove the symbol, circumventing the effects of dweomerflow.[2]
