The term "Potens Machenvar" refers to a broad class of objects, places, artifacts, and other Things that contain vast, world-changing power. The most commonly known form of Potens Machenvar are artifacts — magic items of mythical power — but they can also refer to Worldgroves, Genius Loci, and other places of power. Potens Machenvar are not necessarily tied to the divine powers, often deriving their power from the arcane, or even strange, unidentified sources.

Lore tells of books, seeds, scales, and pills of such potency that they qualify as Potens Machenvar, that, when consumed by a living creature, permanently improves their physical or mental powers.
