History & Usage
Ley-Line Crystals were first discovered in the Age of Discovery
The most important use the Ley-Line Crystals no doubt was to combat the Ley-Line Frenzy, where children had to wear Ley-Line Crystals enchanted to siphon the Ley-Line energy they drew on. They were also used to power all sorts of fantastical contraptions. This could be small things, such as street lanterns that turned on and off on their own, depending on the time of day but supposedly they also were used to power carriages and even airships. Magic-users could also use them to facilitate their spellcasting. These Crystals come in multiple purities, the purer the Crystal the higher its capacity to hold power.
Cultural Significance and Usage
Apart from powering mechanical devices, Ley-Line Crystals also serve as the source of power for Warforged.
The Crystals can shatter if too much power is drawn from them at once, resulting in a powerful explosion. This was taken advantage of during warfares, especially in the Age of Dread, causing devastating destruction.
