The Ways are pathways through the Nevernever accessible to mortals. A wizard can open a gateway to the Nevernever from one location in the mortal world, follow one of these paths a short distance, and open another gateway to a point in the mortal world that would have taken much longer to reach through traditional methods. The Ways change from decade to decade. A Waypoint is a fixed location for a Way, a Way Nexus is a collection of Way Points. The White Council controls a Way Nexus at their headquarters in Edinburgh.
