Breaking the World's Bones


“The One Power comes from the True Source, the driving force of creation, the force the Creator made to turn the Wheel of Time. Saidin, the male half of the True Source, and saidar, the female half, work against each other, and at the same time together to provide that force. Saidin is fouled by the touch of the Dark One, like water with a thin slick of rancid oil floating on top. The water is still pure, but it cannot be touched without touching the foulness. Only saidar is still safe to be used…
The True Source cannot be used up, any more than the river can be used up by the wheel of the mill. The Source is the river; the Aes Sedai, the waterwheel.”

Casting this weave upon an inanimate object allows the channeler to release the bonds that hold it together, reducing it to dust. This weave will only affect a single object or a group of objects connected together (a pile of stones, a building). If the area of effect is not large enough to encompass the entire object, the target is partially destroyed (see chart below). Channeling this weave requires that the object is not moved at any time during the casting or the brew time.
The level of the spell must exceed the hardness rating of the object being affected as per the chart below. Objects that are not reduced to dust completely take structural damage as a result of the weave. Damage is listed per casting level on the chart below.
