Anchor

A point where a few (rarely more than six) Threads interconnect in the Web. Anchor worlds tend to have a greater degree of "weird happenings" than standard Thread worlds and frequently boast a higher degree of magic, psychic or spiritualist phenomena.

The loss of an Anchor world can cause certain Threads to become unavailable, but this is a rare occurrence as most Threads that connect to a specific Anchor also connect to each other. However, loss of an Anchor world does weaken the integrity of the Web as a whole, and worlds once connected to the now lost Anchor are severely weakened; at times, they may be destroyed utterly in chain cataclysm.

Anchors rarely connect to Pillars directly, connecting instead to a series of greater and greater Anchors.
