 The myth of Woven City, also known by the sacred name Delonaire, known to Users (those who use non-Weaver magic) as The City of Magic. As told in "Books of Truth: Reality In Myths", one of a several volume set kept in the Great Library in the Temple of Weaving. Open to Weavers and Secret Holders only.

    The Web supports the mysteries of magic in all it's forms, and thus the Old Weavers mastered it, and made it theirs. And upon this great thing, made all of magic, they built an entire empire. At the head of this empire, the only enterance way that led to the empire, was Delonaire. The sacred city, woven of magic, the first, and still the most beautiful. The Woven City, known to those without the Gift or the Secret as the City of Magic.
    As the Old Weaver did thrive, many visited their great cities, and so they all had to visit Delonaire first. Stones made from magic, towering spires woven from something which was not even solid. Beauty in it's truest form, that which represented the power of the Old Weavers.
    The Old Weavers disappeared, taking with them the texts which held their most powerful secrets. They retreated into the Web, and the Temple of Weaving was left empty for several years. The the Masters appeared, and once more those hwo shared the Talent to Weaver were gathered at the Temple.
    Weavers began to thrive once again, and they again began to walk along the Web, and use it to travel to a few of the other creatiosn of the Old Weavers. Still, they could not find Delonaire among the Web Roads, but some of the books left behind told of it.
    Many Weavers have gone in search for it, staying within the Web for months, and coming out. When they came out they were insane, out of their wits. Some claimed to have made it, even in their madness, others could not speak beyond incoherent blabbering.
    Only one returned with his wits, and a map to Delonaire. The day he was to show the map to the Masters, and release it to the other Weavers, he was found dead. His body and bones twisted and broken. The mark, carved into his forehead, was that of the Old Weavers. His map was gone, and he never told his secret. Even after that , others have searched, none fruitful.
    Still tales are told of the Woven City, City of Magic, Gateway to the Old Weaver empire, Delonaire. It is forever the symbol, to Weavers, of the truly awesome gift that they possess. They believe it still stands, and the Old Weavers will one day reveale themselves. Then the Old Weavers shall take today's Weavers, and they shall all live within that great world of magic known as the Web. So some wait, and others are impatient and search, but nothing has shown yet. It will, though, and all know it, it's simply a matter of time.

Well that's a lot better... Maybe this is a bit more of a historical thing than a myth... Yea.

Interesting concept, Tarquet!

However, here are some questions:
1.) Why did the Old Weavers leave the City and return to the real world? Shouldn't it be a weavers goal to stay in this magical city?
2.) Then why couldn't they find back anymore?
3.) And what has happened in the meantime? Maybe nobody knows, but we should at least have a theory here...
4.) In order to put it up at the Compendium we should also have some sort of a longer description of this city if possible!

I'm not really sure I understand what you mean by the Old Weavers returning to the real world. They didn't originate in the Web, they simply discovered it. The Old Weavers built an entire empire, more than just Delonaire, but that is the most famous. The only reason they didn't immediately just stay in the Web is because they kept hte connection open until they finished building the first cities of their empire, which took some time. And all Old Weavers did have the goalt o retreat into the Web, and they did, because they didn't like being around the non-Wevaers. It took many years before the Masters appeared, according to legend being three Weavers who found their way to he abandoned Temple by some subconcious call, and started gathering their kind again. The reason that no one can get back to Delonaire, well, no one knows. There was no map left as to where it was on the Web, and the Old Weavers could easily place a spell over it like they did the rest of their empire (so it could only be entered by Delonaire). The Old Weavers wanted to stay severed from Sorren, so they twisted the way to Delonaire horribly, although it couldn't be altogether destroyed. The path now begins in the real world somewhere else than the Temple, and continues for some time, littered with things to stop people from getting to Delonaire.
I'll work on a Compendium entry, and also see if I can work up a human myth for the Magic City instead of just the historical fact of Delonaire for the Weavers.

Delonaire

Background: Known by that name, or The Woven City, to the Weavers, others call it The City of Magic. It exists in the world known as The Web, a place discovered by the Old Weavers which is composed totally of magic. There were a few instances when it somehow slipped into Sorren.

Appearance: Tall spires extend above city walls to give it a majestic look, to those who see it. Doors of carved ivory lead into the city, woven of magic. The strange mist which flows through all of the Web hangs heavily about the upper part of the city, though the streets are clear of it.

History: Although unbeknownest to others, the Old Weavers used their incredibly powerful magic to create stone and wood from nothing but the magic of the Web, and this was the first city they created. They expanded on into an empire, to which Delonaire was a doorway, where they eventually retreated.

Location: The Web. Nothing more to it, it's not divided in any way. It is simply a place of magic, and nothing more, that the Old Weavers discovered. They not only discovered it, but changed it to suit their needs, for they were masters of magic.

Occupants: The Old Weavers occupy this city. They are of all different races, but share the same power. However, some speculate that they are all dead, and the city overrun with Spyders. These magical beasts hate the Weavers with a passion for what they did to the Web.

Many tales surround Delonaire, one of which was is known as the Myth of Returning. They say that when Delonaire is found then the Old Weavers will come back to the world. Some believe this to be a bad thing, that the Old Weavers will come with the knowledge of the gods and magic more powerful than any have ever seen. Other believe that it is a good thing, and they shall come to take the Weavers from the world and retreat into the Web, as they did. Still some support the idea that the spyders finally got the upper hand and swarmed over the empire of the Old Weavers, destroying the cities and the Old Weavers. Despite this, some have hope that not only are the Old Weavers still alive, but they've discovered a way to finally destroy spyders. The Weavers still fear that, when Delonaire is found, it will open more of the Web to them, and with this another epidemice of spyders. But they are also afraid that not only spyders, but other Web creatures yet undiscovered will come with them.

Book of Travels, a book which teaches the finer points of Web travel and some of the more widely accepted legends, tells of what many believe will happen when the ways to Delonaire are discovered again. " The mist shall flow from the tear in the sky, true power will reveal itself. The Weaver will be taken into the Web, where he shall see the great city, named Delonaire by it's creators. The Web Roads at all the secret places of Weavers shall tear opens, and the sectrets of the Web will be open to the Weavers. Along with it's secrets shall come it's inhabitants, both native and otherwise. The Old Weavers will be among these and take up all those with the Gift into the Web. The world will be overrun by those creatures of the Web, but the Weavers will be safe in their empire. Thus was it told by Garret Vensay, who is the only Weaver known that was able to manipulate time with his magic and see what was to come. If he was indeed telling the truth or not is unknown, but all knew of his abilities. Shortly after this he disappeared, supposedly to the future so he could prevent this occurence."

Even with the prophecies of destruction and darkness, people have not ceased to search for Delonaire. It is the dream of all Weavers to find the city and behold it's glory. Others wish to find the power of the Old Weavers and become true masters of magic. Indeed the secrets and powers of the Old Weavers is an enticing prize, even if it means destroying the non-Weavers and their world. Luckily none have found it yet, and things are safe. But the Weavers must hope that Vensay will be there to help them contain the creatures of the Web if they are released. Recently, though, strange things have been happening. Only the Weavers have noticed, but they believe it is a signal that Delonaire will be found soon, and many are readying themselves.

Some more additional things concerning all the sections you've sketched here wouldn't hurt, Tarquet, then it will be ready for the Compendium. Maybe you could give them some mystery by quoting from certain ancient books etc. - you don't need to reveal too much, but this just would make it more mysterious and I guess that's what would fit here very good. You can even utter some rumours or suspicions about Delonaire, which don't need to be true necessarily, this would make it perfect:)  Also you should e.g. mention what exactly the Spyders represent.

There, things added. How does it sound? Oh, and it will have to be edited after my thread is completed. This will take a while, dont' worry, bu afterwards all of the myths of Delonaire and it's return will be null and void, because that's what Tarq is trying to do. And no worries, the world won't be destroyed or anything.

*hehe* Sounds somehow as if good old Nosti has found his way into Weaver Myths finally:)  Well, the prophecy idea fits quite well here and the additional details are also quite fitting, so I guess I'll put it up next update (with some slight adjustments perhaps)!
