The direct result of the Spellplague. In this current year of 1479, these are all that remain as far as the “effects” of the Spellplague.
Plaguelands is a term used to refer to areas or regions where the Spellplague exists. Creatures that venture close to Plaguelands can gain Spellscars.
A spellscar can leave no visible mark, or it can leave a marking in blue flame on the skin (or perhaps worse). Some extremely brave (or extremely foolhardy) individuals use their spellscars to their gain, gaining powers from it and even tapping into spellfire.
The Order of Blue Flame often seek out Plaguelands in what are refered to as Scar Pilgrimages.
