Path: A magical opening made by wizards from one place to another. It can be from one place to another in the same world or to another world entirely. The wizard making the path must have a picture in their mind, as detailed as possible, of the place they are going. This is not a common skill among all wizards; and the difficulty for the wizard also is based on size of the path and the distance from where the wizard is currently standing. For instance, a path from one room to another and just big enough for a person is simple for one with the talent. However, making a larger path to move an army from one world to another would be extremely difficult.
