The Ancient Way or "Ancient's Way" is a system of beliefs supporting spellwilling based on a true undertanding of the faith system. It is as close to the truth of faith as is revealed anywhere in the world. Hence they have one major weakness that other willers don’t have which is if they fail at magic they can lose their power very quickly. However this is more than made up by the upside, which is that if they become more empowered with each success, more so than wilders. Additionally, followers of the Ancient Way may come to have extensive knowledge of various techniques for improving their confidence, all of them based on the concept of faith. These techniques greatly empower these spellwillers, making them among the most powerful in the world.
