Penny's uncontrolled Traveling

Traveling is a form of magic involving the transportation of a Magician to another location. This includes the minds of other Magicians and interdimensional travel: the ability to move between worlds. Magicians capable of performing this form of magic naturally are known as Travelers, are exceptionally rare. Due to this, a great emphasis on protecting a Traveler's own mind through the use of meditation.

Travelers are regarded as the most powerful and knowledgeable of all Magicians.[1]

OverviewEdit

While Travelers have the opportunity to see things few will ever experience, those who do not learn to hone their aim can end up making deadly jumps off-target, landing deep underwater, on the peaks of mountains, or outside the Earth's atmosphere. There are no known methods of helping focus their abilities, but rigorous practice and training are advised to build precision. Stanley, however, created an Anchoring Sigil to bind his body to Earth, instead letting his mind Travel through Astral Projection.

Furthermore, Brakebills University has never had more than one Traveler student at any given time, so the faculty group Travelers with the Psychics because of their shared ability to read minds. Most often the only training available is limited to the theoretical, leaving young Travelers with no option but to learn via trial and error. For this reason, the general life expectancy of Travelers is typically rather short.

Some see Traveling as a curse and opt to magically tether themselves to Earth, practicing Astral Projection instead of actual physical Traveling.

Other Travelers embrace their high-risk ability with a devil-may-care attitude, even taking others along for a ride, acting as a human bridge to the Multiverse. Whether they like it or not, Travelers alone holds the key to things the earthbound individuals cannot even fathom.[2]

Interdimensional TravelEdit

Interdimensional Travel is also possible through the use of objects enchanted for travel such as the magical buttons.
