A dead magic zone was a zone of anti-magic or null-magic that disabled enchantments or prevented spells from being maintained or cast. A dead magic zone could also be created from the use of items imbued with the dead-magic field.
In the Year of the Gauntlet, 1369 DR, Calispar Delgorth, working at the Vipers' Nest zone, discovered that plants grown within it could retain magic-resistant properties. He hypothesized that such plants "soaked up" the essence of the dead-magic zone.
Famous dead-magic zonesEdit
The northern quarter of the city of Tantras was a single, huge dead-magic zone of some 400 acres. It was the site of a battle between the avatars of Bane and Torm during the Time of Troubles. It became a haven to those who had offended vengeful mages.
A certain sapphire radiated an anti-magic field similar to a dead-magic zone. It was kept in a specially shielded box to block its effects. Errtu gave this sapphire to a demon summoned by Matron Mother Yvonnel Baenre. When exposed, the spells protecting Yvonnel disappeared and Drizzt's magical items temporarily lost their enchantments.
