9.2.3.4 THE HARMONICS SPECIALIZATION (Cosmic)

Harmonics was developed by the Matrix Institute after studying the cosmic plane of the Continuum. The Continuum is a 'dead' divine creche, meaning that whatever divine beings were born there have long since grown up and departed (as opposed to the cosmic planes with half-formed where the divine beings never fully developed--or as opposed to the cosmic plane of the Vortex where the divine beings had never formed). Researchers from the Matrix Institute have used the abandoned crystal creches to tap into the harmonic energies of the Continuum. They've also learned to harness these energies into gemstones. While this has given them very powerful abilities, it also ends up being very expensive as the Institute constantly looks to fill their supply of gemstones. Historically, this has led them to many conflicts (especially with dwarves) as the Institute believed that all gemstones should come to them for the greater good.
