The Phantasm is the scourge of the continent. They Extra-planar creatures with a myriad of forms ranging from the mundane creatures, to Cthulian shapes that warp the viewers mind just by glancing at them.

The feed off of it from a peripheral plane, and can eventually break through to the Prime Material plane. Once through, they are still mostly incorporeal, but can affect the minds of people around them and the land they travel. For some reason, stable, stationary sources of arcane magic or magic from the book-learned wizards have the Phantasm show up significantly faster.
