Beyond our physical world are multiple Spheres of existence; The Drake is the over-arching Sphere, and there are twelve others. They obey vastly different laws to ours, and sometimes bleed into each other. If you've ever witnessed someone channelingmagic, then what you've actually seen happen is someone conscously drawing energy from one of these Spheres into our own.
What's your Flavour?
Each Sphere has a conceptual area. There is some overlap between them, but generally you'll get similar effects by channeling from the same Sphere as someone else.

There is still a lot of mystery around the Spheres. Were they created? If so, by whom? Did they always fit so neatly together, or have they been worked and shaped? How does channeling work, exactly? What are the downsides of transferring energy between different aspects of reality?
That said, many people over many years have made many efforts to understand as much as they can. Their findings and theories can be found below. Be sure to check back; this page will grow over time as more is learned about the Dozen.
Consciousness, Existence, Magic
The God Plane.
The Drake is arguably the most powerful Sphere, and definitely the least-well understood.
Technically, anyone who Channels magic from any of the Spheres does so through the Drake; the connection between consciousness and the Drake is what allows the other Spheres to interact with the physical world.

FAQ: I didn't purposefully make a pantheon of 13 gods led by Drake so I could refer to them as a Draker's Dozen. Just one of life's happy accidental puns.
Could do a Dirty Dozen to off-set them, haha.

I really like that each sphere has its own properties and planes and stuff - I think I'm most intrigued by the Push, but that might be because of the little thing about revenants you wrote at the top. You've obviously put a lot of thought into the spheres and your magic system.

Thanks for the kind words! Yeah, some of them are definitely more fleshed out than others at the mo.
